Research activities in the GRP-GG are organised in six thematic streams.


Global Data Governance

This thematic stream of the GRP-GG explores the challenges big data and new technologies pose for global governance.

Global Environmental Governance

This thematic stream investigates topics such as climate change and how it is governed.


Global Financial Governance

This thematic stream explores how finance is governed in the global arena, but also investigates alternative approaches to finance such as Islamic finance or peer-to-peer lending.

Global Labour Governance

This thematic stream studies global mechanisms to improve labour standards and human rights protection in relation to corporate activity.


Global Security Governance

This stream seeks to address the wide-ranging and cross-disciplinary issues relating to global security governance. Contemporary global governance is marked by deep tensions that have implications for: (a) how we understand the institutions and processes of global security; and (b) how these tensions shape and change the framework of global security governance.

Emergent Themes

We also welcome suggestions of new topics and themes of interest to GRP GG researchers. Please email Ura Martin at with your ideas.
