"Divided Nations: Why global governance is failing" by Prof Ian Goldin

Past Event

16 March 2013, 1:00pm - 2:00pm


This author's talk is hosted by The Sunday Times Oxford Literary Festival

Summary: Professor Ian Goldin looks at the challenges facing the world as a consequence of rapid globalisation. The deeper interconnections brought about by urbanisation, development of technology and the rise of the Internet have brought great advantages, but, he argues, they also bring new challenges that spill across national boundaries. He asks whether existing structures like the UN and the World Bank can deal with climate change, finance, pandemics, cyber security and migration, or whether we need a radical new approach.

Speaker: Professor Ian Goldin, Director, Oxford Martin School and Professor of Globalisation and Development, University of Oxford

Venue: Blue Boar Room, Christchurch College, Oxford
