The projects of this research area investigate patterns and dynamics of global governance. The aim is to identify conditions of success and failure. The approach is interdisciplinary combining perspectives from economics, political science and public administration.Philipp Genschel, Professor EUI
Indirect Governance Beyond Principal-agent Theory
How can governors ensure that their agents are both competent and compliant? The answer is tricky because competent actors are often difficult to control. We explore options for managing this competence-control tradeoff, and derive pragmatic advice for decision-makers. Our findings are potentially relevant for governors of all types (public, private, and third sector), in all fields (economic, social, administrative and coercive), and at all levels (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.
