Understanding Globalization Zoom Webinar Series | 3 - 7 May 2021 2nd International Globalization Conference

Globalization Week

Understanding Globalization

2nd International Globalization Conference

To truly understand globalization, we need a broadened perspective. Phenomena such as the climate crisis, the raging pandemic, the increasing importance of religious, cultural, demographic and technological questions, populism and the crisis of democracy, the strengthened impact of the media on open societies, China’s ascension, the consequences of Brexit, and the developments in the Middle East and the African States are changes that have an important impact on Europe and all Europeans. What is more, rising uncertainty and inequality are issues that have become huge concerns in public discourses and are similarly perceivable in daily or private situations.

The conference week „Understanding Globalization”, organized by the Center for Advanced Studies of Eurac Research intends to provide a platform to discuss these world themes with global experts and break them down to the local level and South Tyrolean reality by establishing an interconnected edge-cutting link on a truly “glocal” level.

Our international conference in 2021 was the second on the topic and was held as a webinar series. Between 3 and 7 May, we alternated between lunch seminars and evening seminars and looked at the current state of globalization from a wide variety of perspectives.

Center for Advanced Studies
of Eurac Research
The Center for Advanced Studies of Eurac Research regards itself as a platform for scientific exchange and interconnectedness. Transcending the disciplinary boundaries, the Center devotes itself to future-relevant issues as well as the observation, description and analysis of economic and societal processes of change.
Within the research activities, themes and issues of timely global challenges are connected to regional needs, and regional developments are put into a global context. Within the scope of interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary research the interconnection of global and local to “glocal” is diffused in global networks as well as through the sensitization of local and regional actors for global themes.
