The challenge of global governance has never been more imperative and more daunting to realize. The headlines are filled with transnational challenges, from terrorism to climate change to weapons of mass destruction. To foster better understanding of modern global challenges–and the international community’s record in responding to them–the International Institutions and Global Governance (IIGG) program has launched the Global Governance Monitor. The guide’s nine components assess the human rights, nonproliferation, finance, oceans governance, climate change, conflict prevention, public health, transnational crime, and counterterrorism regimes.
The Global Governance Monitor is a tool that shows how the international community is doing in addressing the most daunting threats that it faces. For each issue area, the monitor provides:
a cinematic overview of the challenge, which explains why international cooperation is needed;
an interactive timeline that traces the world’s efforts to craft collective responses to the challenge;
an issue brief that evaluates the overall performance of the regime and suggests potential reforms to improve international cooperation;
a matrix that catalogs relevant international treaties, organizations, and initiatives;
an interactive map that details critical countries and groups; and
a resource guide for further information on the topic.
