The event is part of the GLOBAL TRANSFORMATIONS lecture series convened by the Centre of Excellence in Global Governance Research, University of Helsinki. Economic globalisation and the emergence of a global order of governance pose challenges to the way we understand society and its transformations. This series will present scholars from many disciplines whose work contributes towards a theory of social relations at the global scale. Themes of the lectures will include the intersections between societies, cultures, ethnicities and religions, the significance of different value systems in a global socioeconomic framework, and new forms of politics involving states, supranational and international institutions, social movements, and civil society organisations as actors.
