Governance and Globalization: International and European Answers

Friday, 4 July 2014 – 11:30am
Lauterpacht Centre for International Law
University of Cambridge

The conference is kindly additionally supported by the European Research Council, and the Durham Global Policy Institute (GPI). This time, we hope to bring together academics from international and European law, as well as international relations, to exchange their views on the normative foundations, problems, and solutions, to governance issues beyond the State. What is, or should be, the role of the United Nations, the World Trade Organisation, or the States generally in the solution of collective social problems affecting the entire globe; and what is the role of regional supranational organisations, such as the European Union? Can the European Union provide generalisable answers to international problems?
