SKKU Summer School G20
SKKU Summer School 2010 G20
In a previous post (http://anathuong.blogspot.com/2010/05/g20-in-korea-2010.html) I have written about the G20 in Korea. SKKU Summer School organized a Global Student Forum about the G20, where students can state their opinion and facts about their topic that will be discussed during the G20 Korea.
The G-20 was created as a response both to the financial crisis of the late 1990s.,and to a growing recognition that key emerging-market countries were not adequately included in the core of global economic discussion, and the organization had been criticized – often heavily – by several other international interest groups, organizations, and governments. With this in mind, the ISS 2010 Global Student Forum aims to address topics that are important for today’s globalised society, and in relation to the roles of organizations like the G20.
The program of the Global Student Forum was;
1. Welcome by the Vice President Jun Young Kim of SKKU
2. Opening remarks by 3 professors;
a. Professor Charles Hampden Turner on Current dilemmas facing global society
b. Professor Caecilia van Peski on Human rights and democraxy support
c. Prodessor Andrea Insch on Learning from the crisis
3. Student Presentations topics
a. Regulating the global financial system; defining the role for the IMF, World Bank, and Bretton Woods, post crisis
b. Corporate social responsibility and future stability
c. The emergence of global-local governance strategies – it there a future for the Nation State?
d. Unsafe at home and unwanted anywhere else – the challenges faced by minorities, the marginalised, and the displaced
e. Defining your generation. Growing up in a globalised era.
4. Professors evaluation of the student presentations
5. Closing mark byProfessor Thomas Christiansen
