The Käte Hamburger Kolleg / Centre for Global Cooperation Research (KHK/GCR21) invites applications for Research Fellowships with a duration of 12 months starting between February and September 2022. KHK is particularly interested in proposals regarding (1) legitimation and delegitimation in global cooperation and (2) global cooperation and diverse conceptions of world order. The fully funded fellowships are available to both senior and postdoctoral researchers. We especially encourage researchers from the global South to apply. Deadline for applications is 1 June 2021.
Annual Conference on Re-ordering the World in Times of Multiple Crises
With their joint Annual Conference, the Käte Hamburger Kolleg / Centre for Global Cooperation Research (KHK/GCR21), the Institute for Development and Peace (INEF) and the main research area “Transformation of Contemporary Societies” at the University of Duisburg-Essen are asking whether it makes sense to think about world order in terms of change and continuity against the backdrop of the COVID-19 pandemic. Will the multitude of perceived current crises bring about long-term transformations: in geopolitical power distributions; in prevailing global norms such as economic growth and human rights; in gender, race and other struggles for social equality; in the workings of capitalism; or in the very project of modernity? The 3rd Annual Conference “Ideas for Re-ordering the World in Times of Multiple Crises: Continuity and Change beyond Covid-19” takes place virtually on 22 and 23 April. Several researchers from the German Development Institute / Deutsches Institut für Entwicklungspolitik (DIE) such as Christine Hackenesch, Svea Koch, Sebastian Ziaja, Sebastian Haug, Silke Weinlich, Johanna Vogel and Clara Brandi will participate in the Conference.
The new publication “Power and Authority in Internet Governance: Return of the State?” in the Routledge Global Cooperation Series is based on a workshop with authors held in Duisburg:
