We define Global Order broadly as: a global system, in which international actors behave according to specific determinants.
In constructing our current and future Global Order, we see three major challenges: the knowledge gap (academics in different disciplines have different understandings of current issues); the geographic gap (regions of the world have different visions for the future Global Order) and generational gap (different generations of thinkers and politicians have diverging ideas of a desired international order). The Global Order Project takes on the ambitious task of bridging these gaps in order to create a common Global Order for the future. Creating exchange of research between students and experts in the network will be a small step within an ambitious mission.
The project was established under the patronage of the former chief procecutor of the ICC Luis Moreno Ocampo in collaboration with students and university staff from Maastricht, Freiburg and Harvard. Currently, it is spearheaded by the team at University College Freiburg.
