Academic Conference Partnership

Nature and Scope of the Conference:

Critics believe that the pursuit of globalization had ignored national and local priorities, and caused wealth and income inequalities, and damaged the environment. Most developed economies assume that globalization and multilateralism largely benefit emerging economies and propose measures to correct imbalances in trade agreements, production and cross-border trade, and control mobility of factors of production;  whereas, the  developing economies feel being challenged by the reversal of globalization as a limitation to their ability to maintain growth and development.  In view of the conflicts and uncertainties that prevail today, the 16th International Conference of the SGBED invites conceptual and empirical research papers, case studies and applications, and panel proposals on, but not limited to the following topics:

o   Looking Southwards: Multilateralism, Trade Agreements & Conflicts
