International Relations in The Anthropocene

REGISTER SEMINAR SESSION

The International Postgraduate Students Conference (IPGSC) is a bi-annual event organized by the Postgraduate Study Program, Department of International Relations, Universitas Indonesia. Since 2018, IPGSC has focused on the mission of connecting postgraduate students from all over the world to provide the most outstanding scientific work ideas and publish them. IPGSC welcomes a variety of postgraduate students to participate in meaningful conversations about contemporary issues. IPGSC offers an opportunity for postgraduate students to think about the future of international relations.

For our third IPGSC event this year, we will reflect on human challenges posed by the anthropocene epoch, which have been recently discussed in the context of international relations. Issues such as inequality, poverty, and famine are social consequences that cannot be addressed unilaterally. This problem appears in the interaction between developed and developing nations, the global governance framework, and the rights of vulnerable groups in the Anthropocene epoch. IPGSC 2023 aims to focus on exploring the connection between international relations and these critical issues under the main theme of “International Relations in The Anthropocene”.
