Who we are

The Global Governance Institute (GGI) is an independent, non-profit think tank based in Brussels. GGI brings together senior policy-makers, scholars and practitioners from the world's leading institutions in order to devise, strengthen and improve forward-looking approaches to global governance.


Our core research areas are:


Our Mission

Our mission is to promote comprehensive research, cutting-edge analysis and innovative advice on core policy issues, informed by a truly global perspective. This also includes raising awareness about major challenges of global governance among the general public.


Our Vision

Our vision is a more equitable, peaceful and sustainable global order based on effective but accountable international organizations, the global rule of law and the empowerment of the individual across borders and cultures. GGI places particular emphasis on the improvement of the United Nations system and its mutual reinforcement with strong regional organizations.


Our Work

GGI has conducted research and policy-oriented advice for a variety of national and international bodies. At the heart of our approach lies independence and impartiality and a deliberate mix of conceptual and policy-oriented perspectives, promoting 'pragmatic idealism' in global problem-solving.
