Institutions of Global Governance & Civil Society
The United Nations defines global governance as governance that encompasses the totality of institutions, policies, norms, procedures and initiatives through which States and their citizens bring more predictability, stability and order to their responses to transnational challenges.
The Carr Center’s work on global governance examines the role and effectiveness of global governance institutions, such as the International Criminal Court; creates data-driven research projects and evidence-based policy recommendations on transitional justice mechanisms, such as truth commissions and tribunals; and identify how global governance institutions can best advance justice outcomes in the new century. The Carr Center’s work on civil society will bring together practitioners, activists, and educators to build pedagogy and practice related to human rights education. Focused on building tools, skills, and capabilities, it aims to create a more strategic, outcomes-oriented human rights community.
"The United Nations, whose membership comprises almost all the states in the world, is founded on the principle of the equal worth of every human being.”
