Global Thinking, Local Action: A Look from Turin on Global Governance since the Outbreak of War On Ukraine

05/07/2022 - 06/07/2022, Turin

The Russian aggression in Ukraine called for an unprecedented response in Europe. Meanwhile, the political, economic and social challenges posed by the pandemic have shown the need for negotiated and internationally shared solutions. Looking beyond the emergency posed by the pandemic, systemic challenges such as the fight against climate change and efforts for sustainable development, peace and Euro-Atlantic security require common interventions by key international actors, a stronger role for the multilateral system and a more systematic involvement of local actors.

The Istituto Affari Internazionali – within the framework of the strategic partnership with Fondazione Compagnia di San Paolo - is organising the international conference “Global Thinking, Local Action: A Look from Turin on Global Governance after the War in Ukraine” which will take place on 5-6 July 2022 in Turin at Palazzo Madama. The meeting will focus on the dimensions of international governance that are most significant for the Italian foreign policy. The initiative aims to put into perspective the role of multilateralism in the light of the new international context shaped by the pandemic, its medium and long-term effects on global governance structures and the consequences of the war in Ukraine. The European and global level will be considered, as well as some of the most important policy areas that concern Italian foreign policy and the contributions of actors at the local level, including within civil society.
