As we saw in the previous issue of Global Cooperation Quarterly the Centre’s research agenda is organized around two major themes: ‘Pathways and Mechanisms of Global Cooperation’ and ‘Polycentric Governance’. In addition, we put a special focus on empirical research in four policy fields: global governance of climate change, peacebuilding, the internet and migration. In all these fields, urgent transboundary problems that cannot be solved by actors within nation states alone call for global cooperation, but this cooperation also faces significant challenges. Focusing our empirical research on specific policy fields has theoretical and practical advantages which we would like to highlight in this issue of Global Cooperation Quarterly.
