Global Public Policy

Earth horizon from space

Research Profile

Global public policy addresses the challenge of governing transnational phenomena in the absence of a global Leviathan. As such, it comprises policy areas as different as trade, migration, financial regulation, economic development, energy and the environment. Against the backdrop off increasingly contested policy authority in a globalized world, the research area studies the delivery of global public goods and the problem of safeguarding the global commons; the role of global networks and global public-private partnerships in producing transnational policy outcomes; the dynamics pertaining to policy transfer, diffusion and global best practice; and the policy actors involved at all governance levels.
