The current financial and economic crisis is frequently referred to as a ‘Western’ affair. However, some influential researchers, not least Giovanni Arrighi, have emphasized how such long wave crises can serve to amplify or accelerate fundamental shifts in geo-political relations and power structures. At the same time, researchers from our own and neighbouring fields talk about ‘soft power’ and other features of the changing forms and patterns of global power associated with the onward march of mediatisation. In this session, some leading scholars, situated in different world regions, consider the implications of the current western crisis for unfolding shifts in .i) geo-political power and global economic or technological leadership and .ii) in the global communication order or sector.
We hope you are enjoying the conference. This bulletin is to inform you of some general updates, late breaking news and information.
The first few days have flown! Here are some photos from conference day two and three:
