Eurac Research: a week dedicated to globalization

To truly understand globalization, we need a broadened perspective. Phenomena such as the climate crisis, the raging pandemic, the increasing importance of religious, cultural, demographic and technological questions, populism and the crisis of democracy, the strengthened impact of the media on open societies, China’s ascension, the consequences of Brexit, and the developments in the Middle East and the African States are changes that have an important impact on Europe and all Europeans. What is more, rising uncertainty and inequality are issues that have become huge concerns in public discourses and are similarly perceivable in daily or private situations.

The conference week „Understanding Globalization”, organized by the Center for Advanced Studies of Eurac Research intends to provide a platform to discuss these world themes with global experts and break them down to the local level and South Tyrolean reality by establishing an interconnected edge-cutting link on a truly “glocal” level.

Our international conference in 2021 is the second on the topic and will be held as a webinar series. Between 3 and 7 May, we will alternate between lunch seminars and evening seminars and look at the current state of globalization from a wide variety of perspectives.

Participation is free of charge and open to everyone.
