I had freedom to advance my research, and I also
made good connections with scholars that will
lead to future collaborations. My mentor was
very supportive, as were the other Fellows.
I hope to continue to be a part of
the fabulous EUI community."

Luc Fransen
Leiden University
Slide background
"The GGP is the perfect place for those
interested in global issues and looking for a
stimulating academic experience. I especially
enjoyed the opportunity of following courses,
and conferences with top scholars and
practitioners, the facilities at EUI, and its
multi-cultural and inter-disciplinary
environment. In this unique atmosphere,
the GGP is like a big family where
researchers also have the opportunity of
interacting in a more informal atmosphere
with faculty, visiting scholars and colleagues
as well as having a feedback on their
ongoing work."
Rosa Castro Bernieri

"One year within the Global Governance
Programme means an immersion in the most
valuable worldwide networks of scholars and
practitioners working on the multiple faces of
Global Governance. A great experience!"

Slide background
"Participation in the GGP offers a unique
opportunity to accomplish one’s full academic
potential but also to explore how scholarly
ideas can interest policymakers at the
highest level. Only the generosity, efficiency
and dedication of the scholars and program
officers who compose the GGP’s permanent
staff can make this happen. I feel deeply
privileged I have been able to be part of this
great adventure for a year."
Grégoire Mallard
Northwestern University
Slide background
"The GGP offers a unique
opportunity to study the multifaceted process of
global governance in an interdisciplinary setting.
The interaction between topnotch academic
scholars and practitioners is the source for
much inspiration, powered by the stunning
beauty of the Florentine hills where the thinking
actually takes place."
Alessandra Arcuri
Erasmus University
Slide background
"This is a most inspiring place for any social
scientist interested in global governance.
As in Leopardi's L'Infinito, the hills of this
beautiful countryside and the quality of the
interaction with GGP scholars and fellows
feed the mind with creativity and new knowledge
about global trends, and possible policy
