Global governance is crucial for global security and environmental sustainability as well as human rights, economic well-being, and social justice around the world. In our crises-ridden times, it is more important than ever to provide sound analysis and foster a better understanding of how states, international organizations and other non-state actors cooperate and struggle over the management of global challenges.

Our team at the Chair of Global Governance and Public Policy offers teaching and research on international politics in general and global governance more specifically.
