More about the event:

We seem to live in times of multiple crises: a global health crisis around Covid-19, a global ecological crisis around climate change, a global institutional crisis with populist and other challenges to liberal multilateralism, to name but a few. How do perceptions of these cumulative crises affect world order? The interdisciplinary Annual Conference addresses these debates by examining such crises and the re-ordering of the world along three dimensions:

  • Ideas for re-ordering the world
  • Actors and governance constellations
  • Institutional architectures and power hierarchies

The conference welcomes contributions from different disciplines across the social sciences, humanities and law, as well as diverse theoretical, historical, cultural and area studies perspectives. We welcome different forms of contributions, including presentations of research results, short think pieces, and memos on specific methodological or disciplinary approaches to the conference theme.

To propose a conference contribution, please submit a title and a short abstract of maximum
250 words
in English via this submission page. Deadline for submissions is 24 January 2021 Decisions on acceptance of proposals for a contribution will be communicated around calender week 8 of 2021.
