Conference and Master Class with David Held

On March 21, 2014, a conference and debate, followed by a master class, with David Held (Durham Univ. - Politics and International Relations) will take place at CERI-Sciences Po Paris. The event is being organized by Olivier de Frouville (Université Panthéon-Assas (Paris II) - Law). Details, including the call for applications for the master class, are here. Here's the idea:
For more than 20 years, David Held has been one of the most prolific author on issues of world governance and globalization. His work is informed by cosmopolitan theory and the theory of democracy at the international level. In a critical perspective, David Held insists on the need to overcome the present framework of international relations in order to raise the challenges of economic globalization and of new global risks. In 2013, David Held has published Gridlock : Why Global Cooperation is Failing When We Need it Most, in which he attempts to analyse the reasons of the failure of currents forms of international cooperation, that is the reasons why the demand for international cooperation exceeds the ability of the multilateral order to supply it.
