Event description

Description

When we think about governance, we usually think about Government. But humans govern themselves on multiple scales, as individual persons; as families and kin groups; as sub-cultural and religious groups; and – of course – through national and international bodies.

In accord with the IAS’s 2016/17 research theme of Scale, this event explores different scales of governance, and how these strive to create social and material order by applying rules and regulations to our lives. Bringing diverse disciplinary perspectives together, it considers how concepts of governance recur at different scales, and how multiple scales of rule-making and regulation interact with each other.

This event will take the format of a panel discussion and will bring together expertise about governance at every scale, and it will consider questions such as:

  • What do we mean by governance? Is it simply a mechanism for maintaining social order, or is its primary purpose to maintain specific systems of power?
  • How do individual efforts to ‘self-govern’ minds, bodies and emotions intersect with familial, local and wider processes of governing?
  • Cultural beliefs and values are manifested in rules and regulations. How can we reconcile very different ideas about governance?
  • What is the relationship between physical territory (the home, the town, the city, the nation) and governance?
  • Is there a scale beyond which governance cannot be effective? Can efforts to enact global governance and legislation succeed?

The panellists for this exciting event are:

  • Dr Giles Fraser, journalist and broadcaster, with a weekly column for the Guardian and regular contributions to BBC Radio 4;
  • Dr Ulrike Guérot, political scientist and founder and director of the European Democracy Lab in Berlin;
  • Professor Kristine Kern, Chair for Governance of Urban Infrastructure and Global at the Potsdam University;
  • Professor Dame Sandra Dawson DBE, FAcSS, social scientist and the KPMG Professor of Management Studies in the Judge Business School at the University of Cambridge.

The panel discussion commences at 7.30pm and seats need to be taken by 7.20pm.
