Politics conference provides early election analys

One of the first opportunities for an in-depth look at the results of the 1999 general election will take place at a joint conference of the Third Wellington Conference on World Affairs European Studies Association of New Zealand and the New Zealand Political Studies Association.

The conference hosted by Victoria University is entitled "New Perspectives for a New Millennium: Local, National, Regional and Global" and is part of the university's centennial programme. It is being held from December 1-3 at Victoria University's Law School in the Old Government Buildings, Wellington.

The joint conference will focus on innovative suggestions for analysing and understanding key issues in political science and international relations. Themes include social forces and movements; globalisation; local government and political and cultural relationships.

Speakers include Steve Smith, Pro-Vice Chancellor and Professor of International Relations at the University of Wales and co-editor of The Globilization of World Politics and Rob Walker, Professor of Political Science, University of Victoria, British Columbia. Walker's attendance is made possible by a grant from the Canadian Government to mark 60 years of Canadian /New Zealand relations.

Funding for the event has also been provided by the European Commission and from the Embassy of Belgium. The conference's first day will feature a roundtable of ambassadors from various European countries discussing the links between Europe and Asia and Australasia.
