OEF Research, Pangoal Institution, and OP Jindal University will jointly host a workshop on the role of non-Western and Global South actors in transforming global governance.

Event Location: Pangoal Institution
Event Date: 12/08/2017

On 8 December 2017, OEF Research, Pangoal Institution, and OP Jindal University will jointly host a workshop at Pangoal Institution in Beijing on the role of non-Western and Global South actors in transforming global governance.  In an increasingly regionalized, pluralist, and decentralized world, new and emerging threats are requiring new systems to address.  Increasingly, these new systems are being driven by or heavily influenced by actors from the Global South and by non-Western powers.  Pangoal, OP Jindal, and OEFR are interested in developing a research project intended to explore how new stakeholders have created ad hoc or formal networks and have undertaken regional initiatives to close the global governance gaps.  The December workshop is intended to convene a relatively small number of international scholars with the goal of finalizing a theoretical orientation to the question of how Global South and non-Western states are creating new systems to address global threats and/or influencing the existing system.  This theoretical orientation will be used as the basis for future work by the three institutions. The initial workshop will also generate a joint Pangoal/OEF/OP Jindal discussion paper based on the initial conference laying out our overall argument about the role of new actors in global governance.
