Was heißt 'liberale Migrationsethik'?

Further Events

Lecture and discussion (in German)

“What does liberal migration ethics mean?” Is there a right to global freedom of movement or must this right give way to the sovereignty of liberal nation states that claim a right to close their borders in the interest of the common good? Is there a specifically liberal answer to this question?

Prof. Dr Volker Heins (Institut für Politikwissenschaft, Universität Duisburg-Essen) and Prof. Dr Reinhard Merkel (Deutscher Ethikrat) discuss this matter in a debate.

Date: October 23, 2019, 6:30 – 8:00 pm

Venue: Kulturwissenschaftliches Institut Essen (KWI) Gartensaal, Goethestraße 31, 45128 Essen

Please register until October 18, 2019 at maria.klauwer@kwi-nrw.de.

The language of this event is German.

Is the Paris Agreement Working?

Käte Hamburger Lecture

With Prof. Dr David Victor (Professor at the School of Global Policy & Strategy, UC San Diego)

As a global response to the threat of catastrophic climate change, the Paris Agreement offered a fresh approach to fostering cooperation among countries to address the imminent climate crisis. By design, it is more flexible and inclusive than earlier agreements, such as the Kyoto Protocol. Many analysts supported this new approach because it would be more effective. From our vantage point of today, four years later, this lecture will take stock of the evidence to assess whether it is indeed working.

Date: October 30, 2019, 6:00 – 8:00 pm

New coalitions of change for just & in-time climate protection?

Käte Hamburger Dialogue

In cooperation with UNU-EHS, UNFCCC and Fridays for Future.

The UN Summit of the Secretary General of the UN in September 2019 made clear that accelerating climate action is necessary to avoid dangerous climate change. “Fridays for Future”, as a transnationally organized movement, drives climate policy debates worldwide. Is Fridays for Future a game changer in international climate politics? How do they influence political and economic decision makers? Do they have an impact on the UN? How do they cooperate with science? And why is Fridays for Future so visible in public debates – nationally and internationally?

 

Venue: UN Campus Bonn, Room 2309, Platz der Vereinten Nationen 1, 53113 Bonn

Date: November 11, 2019, 4:00 – 5:30 pm

Shadow Negotiators: How the UN Shapes the Rules of Global Trade to Protect Food Security

Käte Hamburger Lecture

In the 34th Käte Hamburger Lecture, Dr Matias E Margulis, Lecturer in International Political Economy at the School of Social and Political Science (University of Edinburgh), will shed light on the interlinkages between food security and international trade in global governance.

Fighting hunger is a longstanding goal of international cooperation based on the recognition that hunger is a global problem that cannot be solved by states acting alone. In this talk, Margulis will analyse efforts by international organizations to incorporate human rights and development concerns related to food security into international economic law. Thereby he seeks to demonstrate that multiple United Nations agencies – including the Food and Agriculture Organization, the World Food Programme, and the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights – have intervened in global trade rule-making at the World Trade Organization in an effort to steer such rules toward outcomes that protect global food security.

GCR21 1st Annual Conference

Conferences

1st Annual Conference

Date: 9th – 10th April 2019

Venue: Gerhard-Mercator-Haus, Lotharstraße 57, 47057 Duisburg

At this conference, the Centre would like to open a dialogue with other projects and agendas at the University Duisburg-Essen and partner institutions which address related topics from different perspectives and might therefore enrich, challenge or re-contextualize our research. These may include historical and contemporary processes of transnationalization, conflicts about global norms and values, global economic and social inequality, institution-building in the Global South, and the rise of regionalism, as well as tensions in specific fields of global governance, such as international migration, transnational labour markets, global health, trade, development cooperation or implications of digitalization.
