On 6 and 7 November 2015 the Centre for Security Studies (CSS) at the ETH Zurich organised a workshop on the topic “Networked world? Multilateral institutions in international security governance”. The event brought together 20 researchers working on the interactions between multilateral institutions on multiple scales: inter-regional, intra-regional, global-regional. The theoretical discussions focused on grasping the increased density of interactions between multilateral institutions, while the novel empirical contributions included areas that are not typically covered by the literature.
Prof Dr Andreas Wenger, Dr Aglaya Snetkov and Dr Stephen Aris from the CSS served as the valued hosts of the entire programme and the debates that have paved the way for concrete publications plans and further collaboration.
GovInn senior researcher Frank Mattheis represented the ZOPACAS project by presenting unpublished work on Brazil’s delineation of the South Atlantic through a South-South institution. The full programme can be found on the CSS website.
