Global Governance

Starting point

The existing institutional architecture of global governance is proving inadequate to tackle the challenges at hand. The multiplicity of existing bodies and loose coordination structures lead to anecdotal responses better suited to short-term electoral considerations of leaders rather the requirements of an interdependent world. Ideas do exist on how the global governance system and its multiple elements could be better organised as a functioning whole. We will gradually collect them here, thus constructing the first pillar of the Grand Narrative.

Specific elements for the Grand Narrative

GOVERNANCE ARCHITECTURE

UN REFORM

REGIONAL INTEGRATION

GLOBAL PUBLIC GOODS

ROLE OF NON-STATE ACTORS

RULE OF LAW & DEMOCRACY
