(De)Globalization and Development in the New Age of Populisms Workshop

November, 14-15, 2019, University of Gothenburg, Sweden

In this workshop, we aim to host international scholars with diverse areas of expertise to join in an interdisciplinary discussion about current ‘anti-globalization’, ‘post-globalization’ trends in the context of populism and its impact on development. The questions that the workshop will address include:

  • Is the current populist trend an expression of lack of confidence in globalisation?
  • What are the consequences of populist governments for development policies/processes?
  • How are different states and social movements reinterpreting globalization-de/globalization trends?
  • How have the politics of identity shifted in light of these trends?
  • What are the sources of current heightened opposition to increased global transactions and interdependencies, as well the associated global governance?
  • What strategies of ‘re-globalization’ are available, including reform and transformation of the rules and institutions that govern the global political economy?
  • How has violence been normalised in this new age of anti-globalisation and right-wing politics?
  • In particular, how can inclusive democratic citizenship and sovereignty obtain due voice and influence in a revitalized global cooperation both in the global south and north?
     

Confirmed Keynote speakers:
Dr. Dibyesh Anand, University of Westminster.
Dr. Erica Simone A. Resende, Escola Superior de Guerra, Brazil.
