GLOBUS Policy dialogue in Brussels

UCD SPIRe is organising the second GLOBUS policy dialogue meeting in Brussels on 29 May 2018. It will engage senior NGO leaders and civil society representatives in group discussions on the pursuit of global justice in their respective fields of work covering trade, climate change, security and migration.   

Time and place: May 29, 2018, Brussels, Belgium

Madeleine Selina Rees, Secretary General of the Women's International League for Peace and Freedom, is a confirmed speaker.

The second GLOBUS policy dialogue will look at the challenges faced by civil society and NGOs in the pursuit of global justice. Through the dialogue, GLOBUS seeks to identify issues, share experiences, and highlight solutions as to how EU policies and institutions can contribute to global justice. The project also aims to identify successes and failures in this regard. 

The meeting brings together GLOBUS researchers and senior civil society and NGO leaders working across the four key themes of GLOBUS: migration, trade/development, climate change and security/conflict resolution – with an associated focus on gender and human rights.

Prof. Dr. Nathalie Tocci is one of the keynote speakers at the event. 

In the format of a 'world cafe', small groups will be accompanied by professional facilitators in group discussions – establishing an open environment for debate. The participants will be engaged in discussions of contested ideas of global justice and their implications for their work in the field. The aim is to facilitate a productive exchange of ideas and learning from others.  

Keynote speakers 

Professor Dr Natalie Tocci, Director of the Instituto Affari Internazionali in Rome. 

Madeleine Selina Rees, Secretary General of the Women's International League for Peace and Freedom, Geneva.
