Global choices

Globalisation is not the inevitable consequence of economic and social change but the result of complex political choices, Professor Philip Cerny will argue in his inaugural lecture. Although a return to state autonomy is an unrealistic expectation the future depends on society’s ability to reinvent the global and shape it to human needs. ‘Globalising the political and politicising the global: international political economy as a vocation’ will be delivered by Philip Cerny, Professor of International Political Economy, at 5.30 pm on Thursday 5 February in the Rupert Beckett Lecture Theatre.
