As the world has grown increasingly interdependent, populations have been forced into a closer web of relationships that require cooperation on a scale unprecedented in the history of humanity. Structures of governance around the globe are being called into question and the paradoxical relationship between increasing interdependence and the need for cooperation on one hand, and the rising sentiments of isolationism and xenophobia on the other, are being studied, analyzed and debated. This symposium is focused on bringing together leading scholars to explore the pressing topic of Governing Globalization and enrich students interested in scholarship and careers in fields related to international cooperation and global governance.
