Call for papers international conference Global Transformations and Governance Challenges

25 January 2024

Global scale problems demand global scale policy responses. Todays key societal transformations (e.g. around culture, ecology, economics, geopolitics, health, inequality, migration, and technology) are substantially global in character, yet the availability and quality of global governance generally lags well behind the challenges. These circumstances urgently require innovative thinking and creative politics.

The interdisciplinary Global Transformations and Governance Challenges (GTGC) programme at Leiden University (Campus The Hague) therefore convenes its third international conference on the theme of ‘Emerging trends in Global Governance’. We welcome panel and paper proposals from a variety of disciplinary angles and methodological perspectives on the following subjects:

  • Multilaterism facing geopolitical shifts and the return of power politics;
  • Alternatives to intergovernmentalism in global governance;
  • Emergent thinking in global justice;
  • Citizen mobilization in global governance.

Please submit your panel and paper proposals (200-word abstract) to gtgc-conference@leidenuniv.nl by Thursday 15 February 2024. We look forward to welcoming you in The Hague! Please see the pdf on the right for more details.
