Plymouth Seminar

The third seminar in the series takes place on 1 March 2014 at Plymouth University. The latest programme is available here.

Building on the first two events, it examines international organizations and the opportunities and challenges to reform in light of changes to the distribution of power globally.

The first panel focuses on theories of global governance and the institutional and organisational expression of international society. The next panel looks at specific case studies of how international organisations have operated and adapted to the rising powers, including discussion of the World Bank, WTO, and UN. There then follows two panels exploring the regional implications of shifts in power structures, with papers on the Middle East, Africa, Sub-Saharan Africa, East and South Asia, and Europe.

Event location

The workshop will take place in Room 206-7, Roland Levinsky Building, Plymouth Campus.

Travel Disruption
