Mülkiye International Relations Congress IV
The End of Globalization?

15-16 October 2020






The 4th of the “Mülkiye International Relations Congresses” will be held on 15-16 October 2020, organized by the Department of International Relations of the Faculty of Political Sciences at Ankara University. The title of this year’s congress has been determined as “The End of Globalization?”.


Along with the dissolution of Eastern Bloc, disintegration of Soviet Union, the end of Cold War, acceleration of integration movements and strengthening of neoliberal trends, globalization has profoundly affected societies, political systems and even individuals. The relations between the societies have begun to intertwine beyond the areas of sovereignty as well in this economic, political systematic transformation. Hence many problems such as economic crisis, migration, terrorism and unfair distribution of income has gained a global character in this period, tendencies to seek global solutions to these problems have been strengthened, and global governance has been perceived as an inevitable development. On the other hand, we have been observing a series of developments in recent years that threaten the globalization process: New rising barriers to free trade, political developments reinforcing state and state sovereignty, radicalized and sharpened political leaders and political movements. Our congress aims to address globalization with these new challenges. The issues facing the world political and economic system will be discussed during the congress and future assessments can be put forward in this context. Global system, global actors and state interaction will be discussed all over in this critical process. We aspire to examine the crisis of globalization as a multi-actor and multidimensional subject from different perspectives of various disciplines at the 4th Mülkiye International Relations Congress.
