Global governance

How do we effectively address challenges that reach across boarders?

The world is increasingly becoming interdependent. Issues like trade, climate change, world-wide epidemics, international terrorism and cybersecurity threats do not recognize state boundaries and require global cooperation to address. But how can we do this effectively and how do we ensure that global bodies address the needs of everyone, especially the most vulnerable? How can we address these challenges if there is gridlock in our international institutions? Our research examines international organisations and the role of private sector in international initiatives. We also examine specific global policy challenges like climate change governance, trade and finance policy, and security. Our aim is to provide policy makers more effectively contribute to and hold international organisation accountable and to develop policy solutions that will improve the lives of all members of the international community.
