Global Crisis, Local Voices: Westminster students to debate the future – call for papers

Politics and International Relations 16 March 2018

DEN conference

The student-run Democratic Education Network (DEN) will once again bring together Westminster students in conversation with students from around the world for their second annual student conference called Global Crisis, Local Voices

The conference will take place at our Regent Street campus on 11-12 May 2018. 

Last year DEN welcomed students from around the world to its first global conference hosted at the University of Westminster. This year the conference will return with a new theme: Global Crisis, Local Voices. 

To bring out different voices (from a range of diverse perspectives) we encourage Undergraduate and Master's students to present research on the challenges of globalisation today and their responses. 

Call for papers

With a focus on generating new insights into globalisation, we encourage students to present their work from a range of academic disciplines, including: economics, political science, international relations, international security, gender and sexuality studies, international institutions, international development, sociology, social policy, media studies, philosophy, comparative literature, international law, criminology, and cultural studies.

Proposal deadline: Wednesday 11 April 2018.

Email [email protected] with submissions and / or enquiries.

The Democratic Education Network is funded by the Quintin Hogg Trust.
