Global Policy Snapshots

 

Global Policy Snapshots are visual representations of some of the key issues addressed in Global Policy, much of which is groundbreaking research. They are short, easily accessible collection of info-graphics, tables and statistics highlighting the state of global policymaking in various areas such as environment, financial regulation, nuclear proliferation or international trade.

The Oval Observer Foundation has partnered with the Global Policy to launch a food security campaign aimed at exploring the challenges faced by emerging economies in addressing malnourishment and undernourishment. The campaign intends to increase awareness on these issues through a broad range of mediums such as research papers, short movies, thematic dialogues and info graphics. The first output of this collaboration is four new Snapshots:

 

Global Policy Brief Lectures

 

In a series of brief lectures, Global Policy introduces some of the most important challenges faced by the world today. Leading academics provide insights into these global collective action problems: what these issues are, what attempts have been made to remedy them, and where we should turn next to find solutions.


Policy and Practitioner Conversations

 

A series of short videos with leading academics and practitioners in the newly emerging field of global policy. Each video is between 5-10 minutes long, and discusses a key global policy issue area.

 

Global Policy Audit

 

The growing significance of global interdependence is well understood, as is the inherent difficulty of managing global problems through voluntary and ad hoc cooperation of nation-states. The field of global governance has produced a number of breakthroughs, as well as failures, and may benefit at this point from a global and inclusive audit. With this goal in mind, the editors of the Global Audit invited senior students and young scholars from universities and think-tanks around the world to write short essays on the following three questions:

  1. What do you think are the notable achievements in global governance and global cooperation, and why?
  2. Name three major breakthroughs in global governance arrangements that you would like to see achieved in the next 5-10 years, and explain why.
  3. What are the key obstacles to the development of global governance, global cooperation and solidarity, and explain why?
