ESADEgeo was launched in a context of transformation and change. The economic crisis has highlighted our interdependence and the global nature of the problems we face. It has also served to question the values and institutions on which our growth model has been based. Most importantly, it has accelerated the process of transferring power from the Atlantic to the Pacific coasts. Once we have fully recovered from the economic crisis, the geopolitical landscape will have changed.
Clearly, a new mindset is needed to adapt in the best possible way to this new reality, both from a theoretical and practical point of view, in order to build a better world. We need to be proactive and committed citizens to address the current problems. This is the objective that forms ESADEgeo’s strategic design and its first steps in 2010.
ESADEgeo’s global governance research pillar aims to deepen the understanding of the dynamics at play in today’s global governance. In identifying areas where global order exists and analysing how its governance mechanisms work and why they emerge and are sustained, we endeavour to examine how these mechanisms can reach their maximum effectiveness. Our focus is on the formal institutions of global governance, specifically international governmental organisations (IGOs). Our efforts are currently concentrated on the quantitative analysis of an original IGO database – under construction – and the mapping of several dimensions of IGO institutional design.
ESADEgeo’s Global Risks Programme (GRP) aims to become an international benchmark for the study of risks arising from the interaction of global economic and geopolitical trends. It acts as a convener of experts from the business, government, academic and think-tank community. It produces and commissions world-class research and publications in the field: And it is a central node in a network of organisations devoted to the early diagnosis, assessment and mitigation of global risks impacting the public and private sectors.
