Research Agenda on Global Cooperation



For the next years, our research and fellowships will focus on four broad themes that we will explore in two subsequent periods.

During the period 2018-2021, we will focus on

  • pathways and mechanisms of global cooperation
  • global cooperation and polycentric governance

During the period 2022-2024, we will focus on

  • critique, justification and legitimacy in global cooperation
  • global cooperation in the context of plural conceptions of world order

Empirical research on these themes will seek to analyze and compare four policy fields in which global cooperation is urgent but hard to achieve:
