Analyzing and Anticipating the Stakes and Challenges of Global Changes and Major Transformations in Novel Ways

A series of online webinars culminating in an international conference in Geneva

 

“Before, the events that were taking place in the world were not linked to each other. Since then, they have all been dependent on each other.”

Polybius, 2n d century BC

 

Globalization, in its economic acceptation, is not a new phenomenon. As early as the Neolithic period, long-distance exchanges existed, connecting the shores of the Baltic Sea to those of the eastern Mediterranean. We can say that the whole history of humanity is that of a dynamic of progressive convergence, albeit including periods of decline and vice versa of acceleration. This convergence is powered by trade, transportation and communication. This dynamic goes along with a world-system whose centers and peripheries have shifted with the passing of geopolitical and economic developments. The consequence is an increasing complexity of our societies, which have recently become aware of a destiny that is inseparable from the biosphere in which they are embedded.

 

Therefore, the use of a systemic approach appears necessary in order to analyze the complex web of interactions and influences, to assess the presence of equilibria and disequilibria, and to detect the emerging transformations. Innovative methodologies have to be used for this purpose. These involve new ways of modeling behavior, of representing decision making, and of developing and utilizing advanced artificial intelligence techniques. For these purposes, the Central University of Finance and Economics, Beijing, China, the Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies in Geneva, Switzerland, the Cambridge University International Journal of Peace Economics and Peace Science and GMAP, an international trans disciplinary research group, are joining their efforts to organize an annual conference on the challenges and stakes raised by global changes. The first event of the conference series will take place in June and July 2020.

It will concentrate on examining the state of the art of scholarship focusing om the relationships between finance, economics and security and their links to environmental issues principally climate change and migration. Analyses based upon novel methodologies in decision making and artificial intelligence will be presented.

 

Besides scholars and researchers, practitioners will present their thoughts about the above- mentioned issues. They will evaluate new methodologies in light of their own experiences. We believe that this confrontation o views can significantly contribute to the understanding of current and future global changes’ issues.

You can wee the webinar program below. The program of the conference will be published  later.

    The Energy transition will impact our lives in so many ways. Most of the time, assessing the energy transition outcomes focuses on GDP's economic aspects like production or demand issues. But what about people, their emotions, the skills they have, and those they will have to develop?
