GPI - Governance and Globalization: International and European Answers

GPI - Governance and Globalization: International and European Answers
Event Date

Following its successful inaugural session last year, Cambridge and Durham Universities have decided to join forces again to organise a conference on “Governance and Globalisation: International and European Answers”.

This time, we hope to bring together academics from international and European law, as well as international relations, to exchange their views on the normative foundations, problems, and solutions, to governance issues beyond the State. What is, or should be, the role of the United Nations, the World Trade Organisation, or the States generally in the solution of collective social problems affecting the entire globe; and what is the role of regional supranational organisations, such as the European Union? Can the European Union provide generalisable answers to international problems?

In order to ensure its character as a “workshop”, speakers are asked to speak for no longer than 20 minutes. We plan to publish a selection of the papers as an edited book.

This is an invitation only event. If you are interested in attending please contact Mrs Felicity Eves-Rey (

The conference is kindly additionally supported by the European Research Council, and the Durham Global Policy Institute (GPI). For more information please click here or see the draft programme below:
