FGV and German Think Tank select young researchers to discuss global governance
The Global Public Policy Institute (GPPi), a prestigious German-based think tank, and Fundação Robert Bosch, in partnership with Fundação Getulio Vargas and other renowned international institutions, are accepting registrations for the Global Governance Futures (GGF) program. Through this initiative, the organizations select young professionals excelling in different sectors – academia, civil society, government, NGOs and companies – to develop ways to approach major global challenges for the coming decade.
Three focus areas will be addressed in 2018: “the future of the global order”, the “role of cities in global governance” and the “international migrations and refugee crises”. The program will recruit 27 young people from Brazil, China, France, Germany, India, Indonesia, Japan, South Africa and the United States.
The scholars will form three working groups and meet for four discussion sessions in Washington D.C. (USA), Nova Delhi (India), Sao Paulo (Brazil), Paris (France) and Berlin (Germany) throughout 2018 and 2019, funded by the GGF. The teams will use their findings to develop products such as presentations, tests and podcasts containing possible global governance challenges expected for the next decade, as well as the best ways to address them.
Program candidates must have three years of professional experience, academic excellence and fluency in English, as well as a history of impacting their communities, organizations or companies. Registration must be completed by November 19, through the portal ggfutures.net.
