On 12-13 November 2015, the GGI hosted an International Symposium on Global Governance. This two-day event sought to advance understanding of global governance scholarship by bringing together some of the world's leading academics working in the field to share their insights on what is an evolving school of thought. Despite its relevance to key processes underlying the major global public policy questions of our age, the contours of 'global governance' remain contested, with few claiming it constitutes a theory or established field of study. The broad aims of the symposium were to clarify these contours and identify some common analytical tools to be applied to the study of global governance scholarship. What transpired were truly enlightening discussions which will set a course for further innovation in global governance research.
