The Global Governance Reform Initiative (GGRI), a collaboration between  The Hague Institute for Global Justice, The Netherlands Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and the Observer Research Foundation (New Delhi), seeks to analyze the deficiencies of the current international system and proposes policies for improving global governance in select domains:

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.

Experts will submit papers proposing solutions to key challenges that impede effective global governance. These papers are reviewed by 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.

Each GGRI project domain develops tailored policy outputs including:

  • A Policy Brief or Practitioner Toolkits
  • Academic Article for a Special Section in peer-reviewed, policy-oriented journal
  • A (Hague Institute) Working Paper (potentially for subsequent publication in journals etc.)
