Global Governance and the European Union: Future Trends and Scenarios (GLOBE)
The Horizon 2020 project "Global Governance and the European Union: Future Trends and Scenarios" (GLOBE) addresses the major roadblocks to effective and coherent global governance in a multipolar world. Coordinated by the Institut Barcelona d’Estudis Internacionals (IBEI), GLOBE brings together ten partner institutions from eight countries. Among them, the WZB manages a Work Package on the cross-cutting political and societal challenges to global governance. Tying together key insights from the unit’s work on authority, contestation, and normative legitimacy, the WZB researchers inquire into the political and institutional opportunities and constraints facing the EU in the global governance fabric.
