Global Governance Symposium 2015

Annual Global Governance Symposium

Tuesday 30 June 2015

University of Warwick

2015 is not only the year that Warwick turns 50, but also the official date for the conclusion of the UN Millennium Development Goals. Held for the first time in its new format, this year’s annual symposium began with a session that brought together Warwick GRP GG researchers and allowed them to critically reflect on the MDGs, global governance and the post-2015 development agenda. This session was followed by an expert plenary with Professor David Griggs (Monash), Professor Jean Grugel (OU) and Dr David McCoy (QMUL).
