Trends and shifts in global governance

The world is on its way towards a new geo-political, geo-economic and geo-technological order, and the role that the EU will play in it is unclear. Challenges on the agenda include global climate change, conflicts in international security politics; deteriorating support for the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action for the peaceful use of nuclear power, global trade wars, disruptive technologies, shifts in the global power constellations, the erosion of liberal democracies and large transformations in economic systems. Based on ESPAS and TRIGGER research, the panel will discuss the impact of trends and shifts in global governance on the EU’s potential to act as a global player.
