The Centre would like to extend a warm welcome to Drs. Matthias Kranke and Filipe Campello. Having begun their fellowships in April and May, respectively, both Senior Research Fellows will be part of the research group 'Global Cooperation and Diverse Conceptions of World Order'. Please find an overview of their individual profiles and projects below. More detailed information on all of our Fellows can be accessed here.
The project addresses the following two interrelated questions about practices of world-making and world-ordering around the contested growth–sustainability nexus:
1. How do transnational actors envisage and narrate the link between (green) growth and environmental sustainability (RQ1)?
2. How do such visions and narratives align to reproduce or alter the existing hierarchies, which are still grounded in the aspirational norm of economic growth (RQ2)?
The project builds on an ongoing work on the role of international organisations (IOs) in global governance.
My project aims to explore the possible connections between institutions and emotions, particularly how cooperative and democratic practices can be strengthened. I am particularly interested in the role of subjective experiences and narratives in social critique, and how art and technology can contribute to the formation of affects. As a senior researcher at the KHK/Centre for Global Cooperation Research, I plan to investigate the conditions under which transnational political emotions can be formed and build transnational solidarity through institutional and symbolic mediation of affects. I also aim to draw insights from Brazilian Amerindian thought, particularly the works of Yanomami Shaman Davi Kopenawa and Ailton Krenak, exploring how they can contribute to imagining a more pluriversal notion of cosmopolitics.
Current thematic fields:
- Legitimation and delegitimation in global cooperation
- Global cooperation and diverse conceptions of world order
