Conference: Global Transformations and Governance Challenges (GTGC)
8 June, 2022 @ 8:00 am – 10 June, 2022 @ 5:00 pm
How are major world-scale changes in contemporary society governed? How might global matters such as geopolitical shifts, ecological changes, technological innovations, and pandemics be better governed? These questions lie at the heart of the Global Transformations and Governance Challenges (GTGC) programme at Leiden University, launched in 2020.
Our first conference aims to present the wealth of innovative interdisciplinary cross-faculty research ongoing at Leiden and partner universities concerning governance responses to key global developments of our day. In addition, the conference includes plenary roundtables with world-leading authorities on combatting crimes against humanity, preventing biodiversity loss, and maintaining the global internet in a fragmenting world. There is also an opening reception and exhibit in The Hague City Hall and a second reception with book launch.
