Global Governance and the European Union: Future Trends and Scenarios (GLOBE)
Funded by the European Commission’s Horizon 2020 program, GLOBE addresses the issues defined as strategic priorities in the 2016 EU Global Strategy – trade, development, security and climate change – as well as migration and global finance, in order to identify the major roadblocks to effective and coherent global governance by multiple stakeholders in a multipolar world. The project will recommend strategies on how the EU might promote enhanced global governance and deal with future challenges and gridlocks.
GLOBE brings together an academic consortium of ten partners from eight countries, composed of European and international academics and policy-makers, including Institut Barcelona d’Estudis Internacionals (Spain); ESADE Business & Law School (Spain); Katholieke Universiteit Leuven (Belgium); University College London (UK); Wissenschaftszentrum Berlin fur Socialforschung (Germany); Hebrew University of Jerusalem (Israel); Facultad Latinoamericana Ciencias Sociales (Argentina); Universitas Bina Nusantara (Indonesia); ISGlobal Barcelona Institute for Global Health (Spain); and Peking University (China). The strength of this consortium lies in the first-class academic expertise of top European and international scholars, which will guarantee not only high-level analysis of the past and present problems of global governance but also a set of solid forward-looking trends and scenarios.
The project, coordinated by Institut Barcelona d’Estudis Internacionals (IBEI), will run a budget of 2.5 million euros over the next three and a half years.
