Debating relevant questions

The conference will feature a robust interdisciplinary dialogue, blending insights from economics, political science, sociology, technology, environmental studies and cultural studies to provide a comprehensive understanding of globalisation. Renowned experts and thought leaders will deliver keynote speeches and participate in panel discussions, offering their valuable perspectives on global trends, challenges and opportunities. 

Moreover, participants will have the opportunity to engage in interactive workshops, networking events and seminars, designed to foster deeper understanding and practical skills related to globalisation’s impact on various sectors. 

Eagerly anticipated are the cultural exchange sessions, which will celebrate the richness of diversity brought about by globalisation, including cultural performances, exhibitions and discussions on cultural identity and exchange. 

Wittenborg’s president Peter Birdsall highlights that the event also provides researchers with the option to publish their full works, which will be included in the Annual Globalisation Conference proceedings.  

“The conference will be a platform for scholars and practitioners to explore the complexities of our increasingly interconnected world, as well as showcase their work and exchange knowledge with each other. Discussing globalisation is fundamental, not only to understand the wonderful technological, cultural and social possibilities of our day but also to address the challenges currently faced by humankind, such as climate change, military conflicts and socio-economic inequalities.”
