Global Crossroads: Rethinking Dominant Order(s) in our Contested World
The world is at a crossroads. Over the last few years, we have witnessed numerous political events which have shattered the comfortable understandings we have about global order. These have ranged from the rise in right-wing populism, evident in the rise of Trump, to social movements such as Me Too and Times Up demanding a more equal model of social engagement. From the left to the right of the political spectrum, we have seen people questioning the very basis of the established social order. Questioning dominant narratives of sovereignty and democracy, calling out and dismantling existing power structures, and creating new narratives which speak to marginalised voices. This two-day conference aims to highlight, question, and discuss the dynamic and disruptive change that is happening around us.
