Chair group Globalisation Studies and Humanitarian Action

Research in Globalisation Studies and Humanitarian Action focuses on the impact of globalisation on all areas of human and institutional interaction with special attention for processes of international development and international humanitarian action. Key driver is the motivation to unveil and analyse the inherent tension between an ever-increasing number of global (normative) agreements and patterns of conduct, and grass root needs and domestic arrangements of governance.

The group is engaged in the analysis of the ethical dimensions of decision making in international relations, international law and international humanitarian action (Zwitter), studies on post-conflict reconciliation methods and access to transitional justice world-wide (Lamont), patterns of international relations and international co-operation in East Asia at large with a focus on Mongolia (Halbertsma), the interrelationship between educational systems and the labour market, especially in developing countries (Zeelen), global patterns of governance and livelihoods in the frame of development and humanitarian studies (van den Berg), global development patterns and the growing influence of China (Zhao, Moore), and changing interpretation (and glocalisation) of global norms in international humanitarian action and the role The Netherlands play in this domain (Herman).
