To showcase the wealth of innovative interdisciplinary cross-faculty research ongoing at Leiden and partner universities concerning governance responses to key global developments, Global Transformations and Governance Challenges (GTGC) will hold its first international conference on 8-10 June 2022 in The Hague.

Global Transformations and Governance Challenges (GTGC)

How are major world-scale changes in contemporary society governed? How might global matters such as geopolitical shifts, ecological changes, technological innovations, and pandemics be better governed? These questions lie at the heart of the Global Transformations and Governance Challenges (GTGC) programme at Leiden University, launched in 2020.

Conference 8 - 10 June

Our first conference aims to present the wealth of innovative interdisciplinary cross-faculty research ongoing at Leiden and partner universities concerning governance responses to key global developments of our day.

Conference proceedings will include high-level roundtables regarding the International Criminal Court (including opening remarks by the ICC President). Topics include women, peace and security programmes; financing climate change policies; border technologies and migration; regulating algorithms and cryptocurrencies in a global digital society; rethinking human rights in global ecological crisis; grassroots solidarity in the global COVID pandemic; eroding legitimacy of security institutions; and citizen connections to global governance.

Receptions and lunches will offer additional networking opportunities. The conference will be held in person at Leiden University’s The Hague Campus.

For whom?

We invite colleagues from researcher and practitioner circles in Leiden/The Hague and further afield to join us for two days of searching explorations of how society and politics (could better) handle pressing global problems of our day. In addition to panels concerning topics such as those named above, the conference will include a general networking reception and three special round tables: one will assess the International Criminal Court at The Hague on its twentieth anniversary of operations, with opening remarks by the ICC President; a second will focus on ecology; and a third on internet governance.
