Global Governance Centre

The Graduate Institute’s centre for innovative research on global governance includes, among others, the SDG Portal, a window to the Graduate Institute's SDG activities.

The Global Governance Centre is dedicated to better understanding the ideas, institutions, and actors that underpin global governance. Combining expertise from across the Graduate Institute’s academic disciplines, the Centre is a forum for scholars to interact with practitioners from the policy world and the interested public to analyse global governance arrangements across a variety of issue domains.

The Centre’s current research  is clustered around the following themes:

  • Global politics of knowledge

  • International organisations and global policy making

  • International sanctions and their effectiveness

  • Politics of international law

The Centre’s other activities include:

  • Events: bi-weekly colloquium series, seminars for practitioners, workshops, and public lectures

  • Publications: academic and policy orientated works from different disciplinary perspectives

  • Visiting Programme: welcoming scholars from other leading universities

  • “The Global” blog: an online platform sharing ideas about the past, present, and future of global governance

  • SDG portal: the window to the Graduate Institute's SDG activities
