Mercury was one of the first projects funded under the EUFP7 thematic area with a strong South African representation and this conference will pay attention to the past, present and future of multilateralism and global governance, focusing in particular on an African perspective on multilateralism.

Mercury representatives from the UK (Cambridge and Edinburgh), China (Fudan), Sweden (SIPRI), Italy and the Czech Republic (Charles University) will participate in the conference, as will Prof Danny Bradlow (UP Law Faculty) and Ambassador Hannes Spies, South African Ambassador to Mauritania.

During the conference Prof Lorenzo Fioramonti (UP) will launch his book, Regions and Crises (Palgrave 2012), and a special issue of The International Spectator on ‘Regionalism in a Changing World’, which he edited.
