#1 Power and Society

The first series of Global Diplomacy conferences will focus on power and society.

  • What is power?
  • Has society been changing the power dynamics or have power dynamics changed society?
  • What is the future of power?
  • What can we do to be more empowered in order to tackle specific challenges?

These are some of the questions that we will discuss with Nicole and Luiza on the 4th of April (from 14h30 to 16h30 WET). We aim to have an interactive discussion (by video and/or chat), but feel free to join if you just want to listen.

No registration is needed. Please join us by clicking on the Zoom link
