Global Governance Symposium 2014

Annual Global Governance Symposium  

 Tuesday 1 July 2014

Scarman House & WBS, Scarman Road

The purpose of the Annual Symposium is to engage researchers from across the university in the development of a research agenda for Global Governance GRP over the next year, as well as to reflect upon the projects and activities which the GRP-GG has produced this year. The Symposium was structured around three key themes of GRP-GG research (Global Financial Governance; Crisis, Conflict and Change; and Human Rights, Labour Standards and Global Governance). There was also an opportunity for participants to share their thoughts on any research areas that they would like to develop within GRP-GG over the coming year.

Prof Shaun BreslinThe symposium concluded with a keynote address from Professor Shaun Breslin. He asked: As China grows ever more powerful, what will be the consequences for global governance – both the distribution of power in current structures, and the norms, principles and ideas that underpin them? What does it mean to be a “global power” – and how can we evaluate the extent of Chinese global power?
