The Jean Monnet Centre of Excellence at King’s College London, in cooperation with the International Political Economy research group, are organising a workshop on The Dark Side of Globalization. In times of rampant anti-globalist rhetoric and increasingly practice, we hope that this workshop will provide the platform for a fruitful discussion on the overlooked dimensions of globalisation, and how these might contribute to providing an explanation of the current backlash. 

Themes that will be covered include:

  • Dark issues in international migration
  • The dark side outside Europe
  • The dark side inside Europe
  • Globalisation, organised crime and corruption

You can find the detailed programme of the event in the right section of this page.

Dirty Cities: Exploring the Underground Dynamics in Different Urban Settings

31st October 2011

Council Room at King's College London, Strand Building

Over the last three decades, the expansion of transnational diasporas and the rapid growth of transport and telecommunications system have intensified links between the urban spaces of Europe, Africa, the Middle East and Southeast Asia. 

Increasing global mobility has fostered the development of 'informal’ trading networks in which diasporas communities play a central role. As a consequence, the shadow economies of societies with vastly different levels of prosperity have begun to come into contact with one another. 

While the economic consequences of diasporas trading networks have been extensively explored over the past few decades, the cultural and political impact of the globalization of the economic underground has received much less attention.
