The Global Governance Reform Initiative seeks to overcome the challenges of global governance in three important domains – cyberspace, migration and oceans – by improving the efficiency, effectiveness and legitimacy of collective actions undertaken by relevant stakeholders.
The project invites experts representing four sectors (government, civil society, the private sector and international organizations) and a range of countries (BRICS, MIST and the West) to participate in an action-oriented dialogue and research partnership that seeks to generate innovative, multi-stakeholder solutions to pressing governance challenges.
The experts will submit papers proposing solutions to key challenges that impede effective global governance. These papers will be reviewed by luminaries (i.e. seasoned academics and practitioners) to generate timely, practicable and demand-driven policy recommendations that address the challenges of global governance in particular domains (i.e. cyberspace, migration and oceans) as well as more generally.
The pilot phase of this project will focus on the global governance of cyberspace and is scheduled to commence in January 2014.
The Hague Institute undertakes this project in collaboration with the following advisors: The Netherlands Ministry of Foreign Affairs, The Netherlands Institute of International Relations – Clingendael, and The Observer Research Foundation (New Delhi).
