BISA Postgraduate Network 4th Annual Conference 2016

BISA Postgraduate Network 4th Annual Conference 2016:
‘Global Injustice’ in all of its manifestations in international politics.

26th May 2016, University of South Wales

Political, social, economic and civil injustice have been of enduring concern within International Studies. Yet, as the discipline moves through the second decade of the Twenty-First Century, a renewed focus is necessary. Global events have combined to remind us that the contemporary world is beset by ‘unjust acts’ and the prevalence of inequalities. But, how should such issues to be addressed? Who is it that bears the responsibility to uphold ‘justice’ on a global scale? What are the most pressing concerns? And why have they occurred? We invite you to join us at the BISAPGN 4th Annual Conference to deliberate over such questions and address the broader concerns regarding ‘Global Injustice’.
