The Impact of Climate Change and the Politics of Globalization
The impact of climate change is truly global, and no single country acting alone can slow the warming temperatures. Acting collectively to address environmental issues poses major challenges to national governments, international organizations, and non-governmental organizations. We welcome presenters who want to address these challenges and discuss potential solutions at all levels.
Regime Change and Civil Society after the Arab Spring
What's next after the Arab Spring? While old orders have fallen, giving rise to newer movements and younger leaders, many of the old social problems remain and will threaten the stability of fragile, untested coalitions. We welcome presenters who will reflect on recent history, looking for clues to what the future may hold.
In addition to the conference themes, the conference welcomes presentations on all aspects of the developing world.
