'The Transformation of Global Governance' Inaugural lecture and seminar of the Tommaso Padoa-Schioppa chair

  Add to Calendar 2018-04-09 10:00 2018-04-09 13:00 Europe/Paris 'The Transformation of Global Governance' Inaugural lecture and seminar of the Tommaso Padoa-Schioppa chair

Global governance – once regarded as a cornerstone of of prosperity and peace – is being reshaped by tectonic forces. Economic, political and technological factors all contribute to undermine the system of universal, public, treaty-based, institution-supported and legally enforceable rules that characterised the post-World War 2 order.
Demand for global governance has not diminished, however; citizens are increasingly concerned about global public goods such as climate preservation, biodiversity, financial stability and the fight against crime; and interdependence is magnified by global value chains, capital flows, migration and data flows.
Against this background, new coordination and governance formats have started to emerge, which – unlike the post-war arrangements – are often not universal, not Westphalian, not public, not treaty-based, or not institution-supported. The new generation of trade agreements, the Paris accord on climate change, OECD initiatives on tax coordination and international arrangements for data privacy are examples of such formats. They may or may not be effective.
A priority for research and public policy is to understand how these new arrangements work, to determine whether or not they are likely to reach their stated goals, and to analyse if they can form the basis of an emerging global governance system.
In cooperation with the EUI’s other centres and departments, the Robert Schuman Centre for Advanced Studies and the School of Transnational Governance are launching a 2-year horizontal project whose aim is to analyse systematically the transformation of global governance. Drawing on a common analytical framework, sectoral investigations will attempt to make sense of recent changes, to critically assess initiatives taking place in different fields, and to help map out what could be future avenues of global governance. Conclusions will be drawn for Europe’s stance in the debate over the governance of globalisation.

The chair’s inaugural lecture will be devoted to defining the research and policy questions raised by the transformation of global governance. It will be followed by a restricted seminar in which these questions and the resulting work programme of the chair will be discussed.
