Global Governance Debates

The state of global governance seems to be in flux. As much as the current global order might inspire those aiming for an inclusive global society, it can reaffirm the trepidation of those seeking alternative frames of reference. Engaging with opposing views through meaningful debate is more necessary than ever in this context.

The Global Governance Debates shed light on the nuance and complexity of various global governance issues from different perspectives. Each debate is organised around a specific theme, and we invite scholars and experts to contribute short think pieces following our usual editorial guidelines.

Check out our past debates below.


Science, politics, and policy

How should scientific knowledge be created? What role should it have in global policy processes?


Liberalism and global governance

To what extent is the contemporary international order “liberal” and “ordered”? What does the threat of its decline mean for strategies of global engagement moving forward?

Global Environmental Governance

As pressing environmental challenges mount, what kind of global institutional framework do we need to better address climate change? What should be the role of state-based and non-state transnational political action in the quest to find lasting political solutions? Urs Luterbacher and Naghmeh Nasiritousi share their differing perspectives.
