IBEI will lead the H2020 collaborative project GLOBE for the study of future scenarios in Global Governance
The GLOBE project, named “Global Governance and the European Union: Future Trends and Scenarios” will start on the 1st of January 2019.
The project will approach the issues defined as strategic priorities in the 2016 EU Global Strategy: trade and development, security, the politics of climate change, migration and global finance, aiming to identify the major roadblocks for effective and coherent global governance, by multiple stakeholders, and in a multi-polar world.
It will cluster policy-makers, academics and the general public with an analytical grip on the state of play in global governance, developing new theoretical and methodological approaches. It also hopes to equip national and European policy-makers with tools to identify constraints and possibilities in several global governance scenarios in 2030 and 2050.
The project, is framed in the area "Europe in a changing world - Inclusive, innovative and reflective societies", section "Governance for the future" of the EU's Horizon 2020 programme.
