Issue-Linkages and Regime-Complexes

*  *  *

Published on Thursday, November 12, 2009 by Karim Hammou

Summary

International politics have been handled by a growing number of international regimes, in extended issue areas such as international economy, security, migration, or the environment. While these regimes were initially meant to address specific issues, their scope have been extended, creating what has been described as “regime complex”, “regime interplay”, or “overlapping regimes”. As a consequence, human rights issues are discussed at the WTO, climate change at the IMF, and gender at the Security Council. The 2010 REPI Workshop will explore the causes and consequences of issue-linkages and regime-complexes. REPI Workshops have a unique format.

The 2010 REPI Workshop will explore the causes and consequences of issue-linkages and regime-complexes. REPI Workshops have a unique format. As opposed to usual conferences, the number of participants is strictly limited, full papers are distributed long before the event, and authors speak only at the closure of discussions. We believe this format favors intellectual exchanges, critical thinking and constructive contributions. REPI Workshops are an opportunity to receive detailed feedback on ongoing research projects and an informal setting for scholars to exchange ideas and to get acquainted.
