‘Globalization, the State, and Society’ conference

The Center for Interdisciplinary Studies and the Whitney R. Harris Institute for Global Legal Studies in the School of Law and the Department of Political Science in Arts & Sciences will present a conference called “Globalization, the State, and Society” Nov. 13-14 in the Bryan Cave Moot Courtroom of Anheuser-Busch Hall.

This event is part of the Sesquicentennial celebration.

The conference will explore issues and debates over the relationship between globalization and sovereignty and the prospects for the modern social welfare state and state-society bargains in an increasingly global economy.

Conference panels are interdisciplinary, with panel members representing the fields of political science, economics and law. Panelists include members of the University faculty and experts from around the world.

Papers presented by the panelists will be compiled into an edited volume to be released in 2004.

The conference is free and open to the public. For more information, e-mail Linda McClain at lmcclain@wulaw.wustl.edu.
