Between the Global and the Local: Actors, Institutions and Processes

  • Conference Call
  • In recent years, we have seen a deepening in the interconnectedness of developments between the global stage and local contexts. Whether one examines decision-making processes, ideas/norms, or institutional practices, there is a noticeable density in institutional structures and channels of communication that mediate between global developments and local situations. Whether the focus is on the role of the state and the scope of its authority, the national as well as transnational reach of civil society activism, or the rights and responsibilities of individuals within society, it is becoming increasingly clear that outcomes are conditioned by the dynamic interplay between global and local processes, as shaped by the mediating endeavors of a plethora of actors and institutions. In this context, culture has been identified as a key variable that contains both enabling, as well as constraining, elements that affect such mediating endeavors.

    The joint 2012 CISS/Keynote conference seeks to address key dimensions of this interplay in the context of the unique and, in many respects, unprecedented challenges and opportunities of the 21st century.

    Conference Topics

    Hence proposals for papers focusing on the following topics would be most welcome:
