1.) Call for Papers for the Ph.D. Workshop Series „Transnational Dimensions of Global Governance“

Datum und Ort: 30.-31. Oktober 2013, Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Mount Scopus

Deadline: 24. Juni 2013

The Hebrew University of Jerusalem and the Freie Universitat Berlin, within the framework of the “Berlin-Jerusalem Initiative to Enhance Cooperation in the Social Science”, sponsored by the Einstein Foundation Berlin, and in cooperation with the Berlin Graduate School for Transnational Studies (BTS) invite Ph.D. students to submit papers to participate in an international workshop on „Transnational Dimensions of Global Governance.“

The workshop will take place at the Leonard Davis Institute for International Relations and the European Forum, both at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, on October 30-31, 2013, and will include a total of eighteen students from the Freie Universitat Berlin, the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, and other institutions, including the Munk School of Global Affairs at the University of Toronto, the London School of Economics, the Peace Research Institute at Frankfurt, the University of Stockholm, and the University of Cape Town in South Africa.

The workshop will take place in a series of panels throughout two days of discussions in which students will have the opportunity to present their original research.

Up-to-date research in the areas of inter- and transnational relations is confronted with two contradicting tendencies.  On the one hand, in an interdependent, globalized world many risks confront the public and private sectors.  On the other hand, the globalized world opens up a huge variety of opportunities for overcoming challenges and problems, within the framework of global governance.  These contradicting tendencies of risks and opportunities are a central challenge for the economy, politics, institutions, as well as for national and international laws.  Being two sides of the same coin of globalization, both tendencies share a common pattern: globalization builds up on transnational processes of rapid, social, economic, political, and cultural change.  Hence, the workshop will provide an academic space for an intensive debate on these topics, based on the active input of Ph.D. students.

Students that have completed their first year of study and are interested in taking part in the workshop are invited to submit a detailed abstract of their paper (up to 300 words) until June 24, 2013.  Papers (about 25 pages-long) have to be completed and submitted by September 15, 2013.

Participants are expected to organize their own travel, whereas accommodation will be arranged by the Hebrew University.

Abstracts should be emailed to Prof. Arie M. Kacowicz at mskaco@mscc.huji.ac.il (Hebrew University of Jerusalem), and to info@transnationalstudies.eu (BTS, Freie Universität Berlin) in PDF form and/or Word 2003.

3.) Peace and Power Conference

Call for papers for the Second Annual Conference of the International Association for Peace and Conflict Studies and the ECPR standing group on Critical Peace and Conflict Studies

Datum und Ort: 12-13 September 2013, Humanitarian and Conflict Response Institute (HCRI), University of Manchester

Deadline: 1 July 2013

Ankündigungstext:

Keynotes: Prof. David Chandler (Westminster), Prof. Sharbanou Tadjbakhsh (Sciences Po, Paris)

Peace and Power @ the Humanitarian and Conflict Response Institute, University of Manchester
Power is under-discussed in relation to peace, peacebuilding, and statebuilding, yet it often shapes the types of, and extent of, peace and its architecture. State-centric perspectives of power still predominate in International Relations, as do views of power linked to physical violence, official institutions, and the Weberian state. Power and its relationship with peace is rarely made explicit, let alone disaggregated. There is often something mysterious about these notions of power as they rest on vague – yet persistent and widely respected – notions of interests and sovereignty, markets, institutions and legitimacy, or rights and needs. Away from these official perspectives, power can be hidden and unseen. It often operates at the sub-state level, circulating through different types of local or subaltern, and often critical, agency. Recent interest in local agency, hybrid forms of peace, resistance and resilience make it necessary to engage more fully with the concept of power, and with power-relations, in peace and conflict studies. The Second HCRI Peacebuilding Conference invites papers and panels welcome on the following issues:

• Different forms of agency and power
• Epistemology and `seeing‘ power
• Conceptualising power
• Power relations: gender, local-international, state-informal, donors-NGOs
• Implications for international institutions
• Case studies and fieldwork
• Power, the `local turn‘ and hybrid political orders in peacebuilding

Deadline for paper or panel proposals: 1 July 2013. Proposals should be 300 words maximum, and sent to: iapcs@manchester.ac.uk
