Global Governance Institute



The Institute is focused on making a significant intellectual contribution to the advancement of what remains an emergent field of scholarship and practice, providing a powerful statement on the value of cross-disciplinary collaboration in global governance research. Academic critique is an essential aspect of the Institute’s mission and an important part of its work is conceptual and theoretical. The Institute also adopts an outcomes-focused approach and seeks to apply academic analysis to current problems of governance, with a focus on how potential solutions can be adapted to tackle ‘real world’ problems.
