Forms and Dynamics of Global Governance

Indirect Governance Beyond Principal-agent Theory

The purpose of the project is to analyse how governors manage the competence-control tradeoff in their indirect governance relationships, assess the long-term implications of their choices, and derive pragmatic advice for decision-makers. The field of application is potentially very wide. Our competence-control theory of indirect governance is relevant for governors of all types (public, private, and third sector), all governance sectors (economic, social, administrative and coercive), and all levels of government (local, domestic, international).

The Transformation of Global Governance

The Transformation of Global Governance Project is a horizontal initiative at the European University Institute, a joint endeavour of the School of Transnational Governance and the Tommaso Padoa-Schioppa Chair in European Economic and Monetary Integration at the Robert Schuman Centre for Advanced Studies. The research focus of the project is to decipher the mutations global governance is undergoing in a series of fields, assess the effectiveness of emerging arrangements, and determine ways in which the EU can support it or lead to its renewal.
