GCR21 1st Annual Conference
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.
