Emerging Global Governance (EGG) Project

The Emerging Global Governance (EGG) Project is an initiative of the Foreign Policy Institute of the Johns Hopkins University School of Advanced International Studies (SAIS) in collaboration with Global Policy. The Project brings together leading scholars to profile new research on global policy, global governance, global public goods provision, and global risk management across the range of relevant sectors and issue-areas, including global economy and development, the biosphere, global security, global health, migration. The EGG Project highlights innovative global policy ideas and international governance solutions arising from the emerging world, and at the interface between emerging powers and non-state actors, and the established actors in the system.


The EGG project profiles new evidence-based research and analysis of distinguished thinkers. Their work is presented in a range of project outputs, including:


  • the EGG Commentary Series covering “core issues,” “new trends and patterns,” and “emerging hot issues” in shorter essay pieces (or briefing memo length pieces for decision-makers);

  • journal article length pieces and journal special featured sections in Global Policy; and

  • book manuscripts


The goal is to bridge the ongoing gap in knowledge-sharing between the scholarly and policy communities.
