  • Workshop

In this workshop, scholars from a range of different disciplines provide insights from their
research, with a special focus on issues related to governance. The notion of governance
is open and suggestive, encompassing the various ways rules, norms and actions are structured, sustained, regulated, and how actors are held accountable. Oftentimes, it suggests the emergence and usage of novel forms of influence and control beyond government: direct and indirect, open and opaque, national and transnational. It speaks as well to changing perspectives on citizenship, transformations of the social contract, of the relation of public to private authorities, and of the relation of nature to human being. The contributions will provide an opening into a discussion of the problem of governance from a multidisciplinary perspective.


The workshop is organized as part of the Global Horizons Fellowship Programme.
