*_Cultural Relations and Crisis: Results, Impact, New Questions_*

ICRRA online conference, *26-29 October 2020*

Please see below details of a forthcoming international conference that is being convened by *The International Cultural Relations Research Alliance* (ICRRA <>) - a global network of researchers and practitioners from across the world who are interested in research on international cultural relations.

Free to attend and open to all, but advance registration required. To register, visit: <>

This ICRRA conference examines the state, shape and role of international cultural relations at a time of global crisis. The Covid-19 pandemic and other longstanding global challenges and crises and the intersections between them – including the climate emergency, rising geopolitical tensions, population displacement, and persistent social injustice and inequality – are having a profound impact on efforts to build trust, enhance cooperation and understanding across national borders, and develop intercultural dialogue. How should cultural relations researchers and practitioners respond to this? What can we learn from each other? What are the emerging themes and priorities for future research, practice and policy insight? From 26-29 October 2020 researchers, practitioners, policy makers and others interested in the above topics and questions are warmly invited to join ICRRA members to discuss international cultural relations under the overarching theme ‘Cultural Relations and Crisis: Results, Impact, New Questions’.

Keynote speakers:

  * *Ilhem Allagui*, Northwestern University, Qatar
  * *Ivan Krastev*, Centre for Liberal Strategies, Sofia
  * *Nasar Meer*, University of Edinburgh

Other contributions include members of the ICRRA network <>and a panel discussion drawing on the experiences of those actively involved in shaping cultural relations through programmes, movements, actions and initiatives on the ground in different parts of the world.
