We launch our high-profile GIGA Global Transitions Conference series this year. The inaugural conference on 3 and 4 December 2015 centres on the theme of Negotiating the Future: Visions of Global Order. Renowned speakers will draw out the different normative bases and historical traditions that underpin the various visions of order. Possibilities of creating synergies and new negotiating space will be explored.
With contributions from leading academics from University of Oxford, Harvard University, Tufts University, WZB Berlin Social Science Center, University of Freiburg, Free University Berlin, Arnold-Bergstraesser-Institute, and the GIGA, as well as influential practitioners and agenda setters from the German Federal Foreign Office, Hamburg State Chancellery, The Financial Times, and Senior Diplomats from other countries
