A Theory of World Entities (ATOWE) (2021-2023)

The project aims at contributing to the research and measurement of the role of world entities (institutionalized forms of multilateral intergovernmental cooperation) in world politics. The project will elaborate the concept of world entities and create a common dataset of all world entities. This will be followed by a more detailed analysis of three world entities (G20, International Labor Organization, Arctic Council) in the form of case studies. For this purpose, the three world entities will be analyzed in terms of their internal work and decision-making processes, their environmental embeddedness, and their contribution to the formation of global governance structures.

The project is supported by the German Research Foundation (DFG) and the Russian Foundation for Basic Research (RFBR).

Funding period: 2021-2023.
