Global Disorders - Global Governance

Our world is marked by an ever-increasing complexity of emerging global challenges. The “Global Disorders” programme focuses on converging global challenges that require new approaches to international cooperation and multilateral governance.

The goal of this programme is to stimulate new ways of thinking about the convergence of global risks to gather local responses to global challenges, and to deliver outcomes of our efforts to the UN and other international and national actors to influence relevant policies.

We arrange and participate in meetings and seminars about global risks and challenges and work together with key stakeholders from international organisations, academia, the private sector and civil society to encourage progressive change and produce input to relevant policy processes.

Activities in this programme are underpinned by analysis and studies of new integrated approaches to global governance, and its interplay with, notably climate change and planetary boundaries, food security, migration, health and antibiotic resistance.
