It aims to bring together aims to bring together researchers from across different disciplines at Warwick and externally to deepen discussions for a collaborative project on ‘post-‘ governance. The project takes as a starting point, the contentionend that, despite disciplinary boundaries which separate the study of war, economy and disaster, important insights can be gained through an interdisciplinary exploration of the way that events are bounded by conceptions of temporality and responsibility where events are constituted through both anticipation and remembrance.

Crisis, Conflict and Change Away Day
Tuesday 24 April 2012, Arden House, University of Warwick


Deep tensions mark many areas of contemporary global governance. From the ongoing global financial crisis to concerns over food and energy security to conflicts over natural resources and a burgeoning environmental and climate change crisis and health epidemics, instability is permeating international economic and geopolitical relations and challenging existing institutions of global governance. At the same time contours of world power are in flux, with new actors gaining prominence and new global governance instruments emerging in reaction to crisis and conflict. This GPP-GG Away Day explored the challenges posed by contemporary concerns with systemic and emerging crisis and conflict and shifting geopolitical and economic power.
