Global Transformations and Governance Challenges (GTGC) Conference 2022 Leiden University | 8-10 June 2022
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.
To showcase the wealth of innovative interdisciplinary cross-faculty research ongoing at Leiden and partner universities concerning governance responses to key global developments, GTGC organized its first international conference on 8-10 June 2022 in The Hague. Conference proceedings included high-level roundtables regarding the International Criminal Court (including opening remarks by the ICC President), climate change, and the global Internet in a divided world. Further panels addressed questions of global peace and security, global migration, global health, and global human rights. Receptions and lunches offered additional networking opportunities.
The conference was organized in person at Leiden University’s The Hague Campus.
