About the G&G Network
The Globalisation & Governance Research Network represents a coming together of UNSW colleagues who are interested in understanding the complex relationship between globalisation and governance.
Members are united by their interest in the following research questions:
- What kinds of new security, economic, political, social and environmental challenges and opportunities are presented by ‘globalisation’?
- How are these challenges and opportunities being mediated at the local, national, regional, international and global levels?
- How and to what extent are increasing levels of economic, political and social integration transforming existing modes of governance and our ideas of the centre and periphery?
- How do the ways in which we seek to govern globalisation reflect and impact on the nature and distribution of power and polarisation?
Insofar as globalisation represents the most complex and multifaceted social process of the current era, the strength of our network derives from the interdisciplinary ways in which we consider these questions.
Our activities include regular research seminars, workshops and public lectures and events. We also provide a forum for the discussion of, and advocacy around, University and Government policies that shape the research environment in which we operate.
