The Global Webinar on the International System of Power enters its 3rd series but our aims remain the same: how can we open up our minds and learn how to think differently about the world, its different regions and societies? How can we connect with streams of thought, ideas, thinkers, scholars and experience, from around the world? How might we be better informed by intellectual currents beyond the global North and its circuits of knowledge? How can we have truly global conversations beyond conventional elite circuits and boundaries of knowledge? What might truly global knowledge look like?
All sessions will be chaired by Professor Inderjeet Parmar (City, University of London) and Dr Juvaria Jafri (Cambridge; City, University of London).
