2nd UNESCO MOST Winter School at Institute of Advanced Studies in Kőszeg

The increasing complexity of global politics speeds up social transformations around the world. The tension between rapid changes and established beliefs and norms among citizens shakes mutual and institutional trust. The dilemma of whether supra-national entities and global caretaker organizations or returning to national political solutions can better address these issues will be tackled by this Winter School.

Bridging the gap between citizens and bureaucratic institutions calls for a broad, global horizon, for opportunities to discuss value images in various parts of the world. This MOST School intends to offer such an opportunity by contributing to a better global understanding of new and emerging political and social fault lines that will likely mark political representation patterns for years to come.

The UNESCO MOST Winter School at iASK poses the question: Why are we seeing the rise of post-liberal regimes? And what impact does this have on institutional trust at the local, national, and supranational levels? Is this merely a temporary global ‘glitch’ that will deteriorate over time as new challenges emerge?

With lectures and presentations by experienced academic researchers, activists and public officials with a broad, global horizon, the aim is to open discussions on visions for the establishment and re-establishment of trust on various levels of global, regional and lower levels of governance and politics. Participants will work together to produce a document with recommendations that answer the following questions:

The document will afterward be distributed to local governments, ministries, and media from the countries and supranational entities represented at the Winter School.

MOST Schools are capacity-building activities focused on strengthening competencies for evidence-informed decision-making. They help develop the capacity of researchers and decision-makers to translate knowledge into action. Their primary goal is to support long-term sustainable development in contexts where capacity gaps constrain translating research into action.

Advanced MA and PhD students and young researchers, young professionals, policymakers, and social entrepreneurs, who have a keen academic or professional interest in the topics.
