Global Governance Centre

The Global Governance Centre is dedicated to better understanding the actors, knowledge, practices, institutions and power dynamics that shape global governance.

Combining expertise from across the Graduate Institute’s academic disciplines, the Global Governance Centre promotes academic debates that are critical, beyond state-of-the-art, transdisciplinary, inclusive and relevant.

Making the most of its special location in International Geneva, the Centre is also a forum for scholars, decision-makers, policy practitioners and the interested public to engage with governance questions across a wide array of policy domains.

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

  • Global politics of knowledge and expertise

  • Actors, mechanisms and practices of global governance

  • Legal and normative orders
