Welcome to the micro-site for the Seventeenth Global Studies Conference

.Founded in 2011, Global Studies Research Network is devoted to mapping and interpreting past and emerging trends and patterns in globalization. We aim to traverse a broad terrain, sometimes technically and other times socially oriented, sometimes theoretical and other times practical in their perspective, and sometimes reflecting dispassionate analysis while at other times suggesting interested strategies for action. Our aim is to build an epistemic community where we can make linkages across disciplinary, geographic, and cultural boundaries.

The Seventeenth Global Studies Conference calls for research addressing the following annual themes and special focus:

  • 2024 Special Focus—The World on the Move: Understanding Migration in a New Global Age

  • Theme 1: Networks of Economy and Trade

  • Theme 2: The Power of Institutions

  • Theme 3: Vectors of Society and Culture

  • Theme 4: Ecological Foundations


We are interested in the following lines of investigation:   


  • On the economic dimensions of globalization.

  • On the political dimensions of globalization.

  • On the socio-cultural dimensions of globalization.

  • On the eco-systemic dimensions of globalization.


Global Studies Research Network also supports a book imprint and a collection of journals.
