The University Seminar on Globalization, Governance and Development, founded in 1997, is an interdisciplinary seminar that brings together faculty and graduate students from across the social sciences, especially from political science, public policy, economics, sociology, and law. Our shared interest in this seminar is to gain a better understanding of the causes and consequences of recent global economic and socio-political changes; we are especially interested in how globalization affects the distribution of wealth and well being, as well as governance among and within nations.
Founded as the University Seminar on Globalization and Equity, and later known as Global Governance and Democracy, the seminar series is co-chaired by Gary Gereffi and Giovanni Zanalda is organized around a series of talks by domestic and international guest speakers whose work analyzes these issues from a social science perspective, broadly conceived.
Seminars are on typically held on Thursdays from 5:30 – 7:00 pm, each seminar will be followed by a short reception, allowing individual conversations with the speaker. We are pleased to invite the Duke and Triangle communities to join us for this series of public lectures.
