Policy Seminars

The research conducted at the Global Gov­ernance Programme aims to identify the medium and long term challenges that the world faces and possible directions to follow in addressing them. The Global Governance Pro­gramme engages in ‘Big Arguments’ and ‘Big Issues’.


Global thinkers and leaders, academics as well as policy and decision makers constitute the pool of experts on which the Programme can draw for inspired and cutting-edge debates of relevance to the problems facing the world.


The Programme fosters dialogue between the worlds of research and policy at the highest level of quality and in a fair-minded way and seeks to contribute robust critical thinking to questions of policy and institutional design.


The policy dimension is a core feature of the Programme, which has offered an exceptional forum for prominent leaders to attain a research-led approach to issues on the policy agenda.
