The Global Governance Institute (GGI) is an independent, non-profit think tank based in Brussels that includes a network of over 40 experts from around the world, many of them with a strong background and careers in international organisations. GGI brings together policy-makers, scholars and practitioners from the world’s leading institutions in order to devise, strengthen and improve forward-looking approaches to global governance. Its mission is to promote comprehensive research, cutting-edge analysis and innovative advice on core policy issues, informed by a truly global perspective. This also includes raising awareness about major challenges of global governance among the general public. GGI’s vision is a more equitable, peaceful and sustainable global order based on effective but accountable international organisations, the global rule of law and the empowerment of the individual across borders and cultures. GGI places particular emphasis on the improvement of the United Nations system and its mutual reinforcement with strong regional organisations.
At GGI, the European Centre for Global Education provides comprehensive research, timely policy advice, as well as a range of training and learning opportunities related to education reform and the future of teaching and learning. ECGE's principal objectives are to foster and advance global dialogue on the future of education, nurture innovative and creative thinking throughout all levels of education and provide support to policy-makers and education leaders for tackling some of the most pressing issues related to the future of global education.
