The acceleration of globalization has presented a host of transnational governance challenges, from violent extremism and refugee crises to global warming and pandemics. Advancing peace, prosperity, and justice on a global scale in the face of these problems will require innovative forms of collaboration among international institutions, states, businesses, and civil society.
The Global Future of Governance was the focus of the Georgetown Global Futures Initiative during the fall 2015 semester. A series of lectures by leaders of major international organizations framed a structured conversation with faculty, students, and a global audience about key governance challenges and how to address them in the decades to come.
The lectures were complemented by a range of other events across campus related to the theme of governance, as well as a global online dialogue including scholars, students, and practitioners around the world.
