|Description:||CSGR / GARNET Conference "PATHWAYS TO LEGITIMACY? THE FUTURE OF GLOBAL AND REGIONAL GOVERNANCE"|
|Location:||Coventry, Scarman House, University of Warwick, United Kingdom|
|Subject:||CSGR and GARNET therefore invite friends old and new to a searching, international, innovative exploration of how global and regional governance might be made more legitimate. How should we conceive of legitimacy when it comes to regulation beyond the state? What types of indicators and measures could allow us to assess the legitimacy of global and regional authorities? What sorts of institutional reforms could promote greater legitimacy in global and regional governance agencies? What kinds of political campaigns and strategies (for example, via civil society groups, corporate responsibility, courts, mass media, parliaments, parties, etc.) could achieve more legitimate global and regional arrangements? The CSGR/GARNET Conference will explore these questions and more in relation to intergovernmental bodies (e.g. EAC, EU, IFIs, MERCOSUR, UN), transgovernmental arrangements (e.g. G8, Nuclear Suppliers Group), interregional and regional frameworks (e.g. ASEM, ASEAN+3), and private global and regional regulation (e.g. fair trade schemes, ICANN). Papers are invited on problems of legitimate global and regional governance as they relate inter alia to issues of communications, development, environment, finance, gender, health, inequality, investment, migration, security, social and cultural change and trade.
