Scaling Global Governance – Durham Symposium

9th November 2016, 09:00 to 10th November 2016, 13:00, IAS Seminar, Palace Green

This interdisciplinary symposium invites scholars from Law, International Relations and Geography, to interrogate the role of ‘scale’ in international legal and governance scholarship. The symposium will explore the utility of a scalar approach, what the different scales represent, and whether there are lessons to be learnt about norm transfer and the legitimisation of governance across different scales. The symposium will consider whether the way we measure, label and conceptualise scales influences our approaches to law and global governance. Engaging with ‘scale’ beyond disciplinary silos will further scholarly understanding of the impact of scale in global governance.
