    1st Iapss World Congress, Thessaloniki 2014


    The 1st World Congress of the International Association for Political Science Students (IAPSS) in Thessaloniki, Greece from March 31st to April 3rd 2014.


    What is Global Governance and what does it consist of? Which challenges does the concept face? What are the contrasting ideas on the subject? In what possible means can Global Governance effectively tackle global problems? Must all these subjects go hand-in-hand? These are the questions we will try to address during our promising and inspiring debates and discussions.The concept of sovereign nation-states, relatively independent from each other seems long gone today. Globalisation brought many challenges to governance: the emergence of regional blocs and organisations who have nowadays prerogatives and responsibilities that previously were enjoyed exclusively by states; the rise of transnational problems calling for global answers, such as environmental issues but also international crime and financial movements; finally, technology and social networks, which have since been contributing to a great extent to further bringing down the walls between countries. Due to their very nature, these issues require global answers.
