Mapping the Global Dimensions of Policy5

The graduate conference, Mapping the Global Dimensions of Policy5, will be taking place Monday, February 8th and Tuesday, February 9th in MUSC CIBC Hall.

Feb 23, 2016

The Department of Political Science at McMaster University, in conjunction with the Canada Research Chair in Public Policy and Globalization, Institute for Globalization and the Human Condition, Engineering and Public Policy Program, Global Health Program, and the Centre for Climate Change proudly presents the fifth Graduate Conference on the Internationalization of Public Policy: Mapping the Global Dimensions of Policy 5.

Drawing upon McMaster’s expertise in the field of international and comparative public policy, the conference theme focuses on the global dimension of policy and aims to bridge the gap between international relations and public policy by investigating how “the global,” including institutions, actors, structures and ideas intersects with regional, national and local jurisdictions to create particular policies and outcomes. Papers presented this year use a variety of approaches and address a range of issues related to the internationalization of public policy, including: security and crime, corporate social responsibility, finance, the International Labour Organization, citizenship and immigration,
austerity, trade and investment, the environment, development, and social policy.
