The NZ think-tank seeking answers to the 'global questions'
- How does ‘global studies’ better inform the political, professional, and academic communities about world affairs in the 21st century?
- What is the difference between the ‘global community of peoples’ and the ‘international community of states’; and how do they inter-relate?
- How do the Centre’s ‘structural programmes’ (global citizenship; global governance; global law) inter-relate; and how do they influence the Centre’s ‘thematic programmes’ (global security; global sustainability’)?
- How to bring 20th thought – the foundation of the international system – into the 21st c. with optimal balance between stability and creativity, to solve our contemporary global problems?
- How to ensure that current ‘global dynamics’, both spatial (inter-regional) and temporal (inter-generational) are harnessed most effectively in the global public interest?
