Emerging Global Governance

Emerging Global Governance

Emerging Global GovernanceThe Emerging Global Governance (EGG) Project is an initiative of the Foreign Policy Institute of the Johns Hopkins University’s School of Advanced International Studies (SAIS) in collaboration with Global Policy.


The Project brings together leading scholars to profile new research on global policy, global governance, global public goods provision, and global risk management across the range of relevant sectors and issue-areas, including global economy and development, the biosphere, global security, global health, migration. The EGG Project highlights innovative global policy ideas and international governance solutions arising from the emerging world, and at the interface between emerging powers and non-state actors, and the established actors in the system.


The EGG project profiles new evidence-based research and analysis of distinguished thinkers. Their work is presented in a range of project outputs, including


  • the EGG Commentary Series covering “core issues”, “new trends and patterns”, and “emerging hot issues” in shorter essay pieces (or briefing memo length pieces for decision-makers);
  • journal article length pieces and journal special featured sections in Global Policy; and
  • book manuscripts


The goal is to bridge the ongoing gap in knowledge-sharing between the scholarly and policy communities. The project's outputs will be listed below.

EVA Policy Insight - China and Global Governance: Opportunistic Multilateralism

This Global Policy Early View Article (EVA) by Kastner, Pearson and Rector examines how US policy toward the People's Republic of China (PRC) has come under increasing attack in Washington, as a growing chorus of analysts paints the PRC as a revisionist power seeking to undercut existing multilateral institutions. It observes, however, that China's approach to multilateralism varies across different issue areas and that China's approach differs depending on the strategic landscape of any given context. It concludes that it is thus a mistake to view China through a single lens as either a ‘revisionist’ or a ‘status‐quo’ power. Please click here to read the full EVA.
