  • Division of Global Affairs - Rutgers University Division of Global Affairs

Abstracts (200-300 words) should be suitable for blind review; include a separate document with name, paper title, and contact information and should address one of the six panel themes: Civil War and Intervention: How Does the World Respond When the Sovereign is in Crisis? Democracy and Development in a Globalized World Transitional Justice: Building the Future by Reconciling the Past The Financialization of the World’s Economy: As the Role of Financial Markets Increase, What are the Implications for State and Non-State Actors? Beyond 9/11: Reshaping Security in the Twenty First Century Globalization and Immigration: Building a framework of enforceable human/workers rights for economic migrants in the 21st Century The deadline for abstracts is Friday February 13, 2015. Notification of Acceptance by Friday March 6, 2015 All submissions should be sent electronically to Lynette Sieger at: les174@scarletmail.rutgers.edu Extended Panel Descriptions: Moderator: Iuliia Kononenko Theme: Civil War and Intervention: How Does the World Respond When the Sovereign is in Crisis? Description: Since the end of the Cold War, the number of civil wars has increased as well as their longevity. Factionalized violence and volatility of the borders associated with those conflicts perpetuate human rights violations, refugee flows and decline in economic growth. The questions on whether intervention of international actors mitigates effects of civil wars and contributes to their resolution or, on contrary, reinforces the conflict trap is pertinent to international peace and security. Moderator: Eltion Meka Theme: Democracy and Development in a Globalized World Description: Transitions to democracy remains one of the core research programs in political science. This is partly because democratization runs root with nearly every aspect of socio-economic development. Hence, the long unanswered question in political science: Does economic development bring democracy or is democracy a function of other factors? How do these two research programs interact with one another in a globalized world and what have they taught us about the modernization of developing societies? Moderator: Meghan Sullivan Theme: Transitional Justice: Building the Future by Reconciling the Past Description: In the aftermath of civil war and state repression, the scars of past human rights violations leave legacies of unrecognized victims, mistrust of state institutions and a weak rule of law. Many societies enact judicial and non-judicial mechanisms such as prosecutions, truth commissions, and reparations in an attempt to reconcile this past and build the foundation for sustainable peace. These mechanisms, however, face many obstacles to their implementation and result in varying degrees of success. The question of how these transitional justice mechanisms factor into simultaneous pursuits of democratization and peace-building are essential for countries involved in post-conflict reconstruction. Moderator: Alejandro Gimenez-Santana Theme: The Financialization of the World’s Economy: As the Role of Financial Markets Increase, What are the Implications for State and Non-State Actors? Description: Over the last decades, the global economy has undergone profound transformations. A series of major changes have occurred, as the role of states has diminished while that of markets has considerably increased. In today’s globalized economy, financial markets have acquired a fundamental role in the real economy. The “new financial architecture” and the rapid liberalization of capital markets are fundamental for understanding the current world economic order. The implications of these changes, as witnessed during the “global financial crisis” or the “E.U. sovereign debt crisis”, have generated profound alterations in the dynamics between states and markets. Moderators: Kathryn Duffy and Edwin Daniel Jacob Theme: Beyond 9/11: Reshaping Security in the Twenty First Century Description: 9/11 fundamentally changed the way in which security is conceptualized and implemented. Using traditional notions of security to fight the global “war on terror” has produced confusion and miscalculation. Confronting new dangers to the individual, the state, and the international order calls for new categories that speak to the new influence of globalization, international institutions, and transnational threats. Moderator: Patricia Campos-Medina Theme: Globalization and Immigration: Building a framework of enforceable human/workers rights for economic migrants in the 21st Century Description: Globalization has fundamentally transformed the economic and financial dynamics in local economies forcing millions of people to migrate as the only means of securing economic mobility. While financial markets and corporations have the ability to move freely across borders, economic migrants have been land-locked into a system of the sovereign–national governments asserting their rights to enforce their immigration laws within a context of national security and border controls. What are the challenges facing economic migrants as they continue to migrate to the West in seek of economic opportunity? How are developing nations incorporating, or failing to incorporate new migrants into their national ethos? And finally, in the context of human security, what are the legal and ethical dilemmas facing those seeking to develop a framework of rights’ enforcement for unauthorized economic migrants?
