Rising Powers in the New Global Political Economy
Postgraduate and early career scholar conference
July 5th-6th 2013
University of Nottingham, Nottingham, UK.
As the economies of Europe and North America have entered into a period of crisis and recession there has been an increased focus on the rise of new powers, most notably the so-called BRICS countries of Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa. While these countries continue to experience accelerated growth rates through the Western financial crisis, much remains uncertain about their rise and the impact this will have on the global political economy.
The aim of this conference is to explore the role of rising powers in the re-structuring of the global economy and the challenges and tensions which their rise may provoke. The conference aims to develop a holistic and inclusive approach and as such welcomes papers from a range of topics including but not restricted to:
*Urbanisation *Development Challenges * Globalisation of Cultural Industries * The green economy *BRICS and IFIs
Please see link for full list of topics.
