International experts speak at ‘Global Order and Disorder’ conference

Australian and international law and policy experts will discuss 'Global Order and Disorder' at an interdisciplinary conference being held at Bond University in August.

The conference will consider aspects of governance and regulation in the 21st century in what is an increasingly interconnected world.

The conference has been organised by Bond's Transnational, International and Comparative Law and Policy (TICLP) Network, comprised of lawyers, political scientists and professionals engaged in legal and policy research.

The TICLP Network, founded by a number of Bond academics and co-convened by Associate Professors Leon Wolff and Danielle Ireland-Piper, is an interdisciplinary hub for research on law and policy issues of global importance.

Associate Professor  Ireland-Piper said the conference would include presentations by Australian and international experts on a number of contemporary issues.

"The conference will investigate international, transnational and comparative concerns such as global financial stability, cross-border transactions, national security, war and armed conflict, statelessness, human rights, and transnational crimes such as terrorism,” she said.

“Cross-border governance and regulation pose significant challenges for governments from countries around the world and this program is designed to engage with some of the key issues Australia faces internationally."

Associate Professor Wolff said the key objectives of the TICLP are  to promote cutting-edge research that addressed regulatory issues confronting Australia and pave the way for change.

"A major aim is to contribute to the formulation of Government policies in areas such as international relations, international trade and investment, international finance, national and regional security, human rights and dispute resolution,” he said.

The TICLP is an open network accessible to all interested scholars, practitioners, policy-makers and students from across Australia, the Asia-Pacific and the rest of the world.

The 'Global Order and Disorder' conference will be held on August 7 and 8 at Bond University.  It will include sessions from a number of experts including Professor Michael Stűrner of the University of Konstanz, Associate Professor Douglas Guilfoyle from Monash University and Eve Massignham from the Australian Red Cross. There will also be a number of speakers from Bond University including Dr Umair Ghori, Dr Malcolm Davis, Dr Danielle Ireland-Piper, Victoria Baumfield, Narelle Bedford, Lisa Bonin, Louise Parsons, Jodie O’Leary, and Laura-Leigh Cameron-Dow.

The keynote address will be delivered by Associate Professor Anthony Cassimatis from the University of Queensland and the closing address will be delivered by Professor William Van Caenegem from Bond University.
