DIAS Lecture: Anticipating Governance in the Coming Multi-Order World

Trine Flockhart, Professor of International Relations in the Department of Political Science at SDU and DIAS Chair of Business and Social Sciences

Anticipating Governance in the Coming Multi-Order World (AGMOW)

The talk will outline a project with support from DFF, which will investigate the challenges and opportunities for governance within a global rules-based order that is deeply contested, and which is in a process of accelerating transformation. Transformation in the international system is always a major event that is usually accompanied with uncertainty, political turbulence and a heightened risk of war – yet the processes and underlying courses of order transformation are not well understood within the International Relations discipline.

AGMOW will investigate the process of transformation and the character and development of existing or emerging international orders and new ordering practices in three urgent governance challenges: autonomous weapons, global health & climate change. The project will assess the prospects for a new form of global governance, suitable for the coming multi-order world and will use foresight methods to build scenarios for governance within the new context.
