Geopolitical Narratives in the Process of Global (Dis)Ordering - 27 June 2022

Please note that this event has passed.


This conference explores the role that geopolitical narratives play in the process of global ordering and disordering. It is the final conference of an interdisciplinary project on geopolitical narratives, building on a shared recognition among the participants that competing geopolitical narratives are a critical, but insufficiently understood, dimension of global ordering. Geopolitical narratives can be defined as a means through which actors construct and impose meaning on international relations and articulate strategic goals. They are, in short, stories about strategic values, identity and motivations (e.g. "Global Britain"). By adopting an interdisciplinary approach, the conference aims to both sharpen and deepen our understanding of the ways in which geopolitical narratives sustain and contest global order. It will do so by expanding on the outcomes of three thematic case-studies on the subject of Migration, Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) and Global Health and bringing together a theoretical perspective and a practitioner's perspective via the keynotes given by Professor Mark Raymond and Dr. Alexander Evans, OBE.
