International Workshop: Methods and Methodologies for Researching Globalization and Development

International Workshop: Methods and Methodologies for Researching Globalization and Development

28-29 May 2015

The Gothenburg Centre for Globalization and Development is pleased to host an international and interdisciplinary workshop on methodologies for researching the global sphere, to be held in Gothenburg, Sweden.  This workshop will bring together noted scholars to discuss novel methodologies for empirical research into globalization and development. How (and why) do scholars of global issues go about tackling their research in the way(s) that they do?  What do their methods an​d methodologies bring to the table that others cannot?  What practical and ethical problems arise from researching the global sphere? How can they make room for collaborative research across methodologies and disciplines?  The workshop will centre on four main themes, with scholars from a variety of disciplines addressing each, in order to explore the research methods and methodological choices that face as economists, political scientists, sociologists, international relations scholars, development specialists, activists.  These themes are: climate change, international migration, social movements, and conflict.
