Global Governance – Prospects in a World in Transition

Engaging critically yet constructively with the global governance debate has been integral to the work of the sef: since the 1990s. Here, the sef: analyses and discusses the changing forms and challenges of governance in a global context, ever mindful of the diversity of stakeholders, levels of political authority and policy fields involved.

A particular area of interest for the sef: is the increasing rejection of “Western” norms, which must be viewed against the backdrop of international power shifts and continuing inequalities and injustices in global regimes.
