Perspectives on Global Crises: Challenges and Opportunities
16th Max Weber Fellows June Conference
15-17 June 2022
An interconnected world produces global crises, with their challenges and their opportunities. The Social Sciences and Humanities are uniquely positioned to connect individuals and societies, scientific progress and human development. Global challenges unfold with different time spans: some can emerge and develop fast, like Covid-19, or can be long in the making, like climate change and structural inequality. A key role of scholars working in collaboration is to make sense of and provide multi-disciplinary solutions to old and new global challenges. This conference brings together social, political, economic, historical, and legal expertise to answer the big questions of the past, today – and tomorrow. In particular, it shines light on the often-overlooked global peripheries and marginalized individuals within all contexts, uncovering their voices and their labours. The aim is to invite a broad community of scholars to open new multidisciplinary avenues with which to address global challenges.
