The International Academic Forum (IAFOR), in conjunction with its global university and institutional partners, is proud to announce The IAFOR International Conference on Global Studies 2017 (Global2017).

This international and interdisciplinary conference will bring together a range of academics and practitioners to discuss new directions of research and discovery in Global Studies. As with IAFOR’s other events, Global2017 will afford the opportunity for renewing old acquaintances, making new contacts, and networking across higher education and beyond.

Barcelona is one of the most exciting cosmopolitan hubs in the Mediterranean and indeed in Europe. Well known for its architecture, from the Roman to the Contemporary, as well as its food and culture, Barcelona has a long history in hosting major international conferences in all areas of study and work. Barcelona is the place to be for Global Studies. In recent decades it has become a multicultural, multilingual city and is a major attraction for tourists and business people. It is here that one can discuss “the global” with ease in a city which has, over the centuries, established trade routes with the Far East and around the Mediterranean as well as with Europe and Latin America. Its inhabitants are of diverse origins, making the city an ideal location for discussions of both the local and the global in a space which is unique and which has fostered the humanities and sciences in its historical development as a global hub.

The IAFOR International Conference on Global Studies 2017 will again be held alongside The IAFOR International Conference on the City 2017. Registration for either of these conferences will allow participants to attend sessions in the other.
