Conference about the impacts of globalisation

13 Nov

The Centre of European Studies of UEP cordially invites you to the international conference “Globalisation Challenges and New Trends of Governance”, which will be held November 20 at UEP.

The aim of the conference is to provide a forum for discussion and exchange of experience among experts, who are dealing with – from different perspectives -the topic of the impacts of globalisation on society and the economy. Globalisation is perceived very inconsistently but having in mind the fact that it represents an integral part of the recent events in our world, nations, companies and individuals have to look for instruments with regard to using the globalization phenomena. Governance represents an arrangement of formal and informal institutions, which can be helpful in this regard.

The conference of the Centre of European Studies is being prepared within the research framework of the Faculty of International Relations – “Governance in the context of a globalised economy and society”, which has been realized since January 2007.

The research team, which is composed of experts on economics, international relations, political science and law, is examining possible solutions to the most current aspects connected with the reaction of society and economics of the Czech Republic, as well as Europe in the quickly changing reality of our globalised world.

The programme of the conference is divided into two parts. The morning part begins at 9:30 a.m. and included on the programme is a speech given by H. E. R.W. Graber, U.S. Ambassador to the Czech Republic, prof. Luk van Langenhove and Karel B. Miller, PhD. In the afternoon section, which will take place from 1.30 p.m. to 3.30 p.m. there will be three panel sessions going simultaneously. The panel sessions will discuss the following topics: Global governance: the privileged power of few?; European governance: trustworthy for global strategy?; and Corporate governance: does responsibility matter?.
