European Union, United States and global governance: major trends and challenges.

The project's work programme is threeforld, and will consist of: ° Mapping of relevant actors in the field (to be invited to the forum) and of relevant challenges to be addressed (during the forum) in the subfields of 'peace and security', 'energy', 'climate change', 'migration', 'trade, finance and political economy', and 'human rights and rule of law'. ° Organisation of a two-day forum in Brussels (Belgium), with expert workshops on the abovementioned subfields and plenary sessions on the prospects for global governance. ° Preparation and dissemination of both a report (containing written contributions of the experts and a synthesis of the discussions during the forum) and a joint publication (edited volume on the basis of revised expert contributions and selected papers). Both publications will be uploaded on the forum website.
