International Workshop held June 11-12, 2018, funded by The Swedish Foundation for Humanities and Social Sciences, hosted at Stockholm University by Mistra Geopolitics researcher and associate professor at Stockholm University, Lisa Dellmuth.
TSeveral papers were presented with a focus on several policy areas including climate, fisheries, biodiversity, national security, finance, and migration.
Lisa Dellmuth presented a paper entitled, “Interest group effects in global governance: Expectations about domestic and global opportunity structures”; while Karl Hallding, senior research fellow at Stockholm Environment Institute and Mistra Geopolitics researcher, participated in the panel debate (see livestream video below) on “International non-governmental organizations, representation, and effectiveness in global governance”.
The workshop’s aim was to unite scholars and practitioners who think we need to have a better understanding of interest groups’ effects in global governance. Specialized interests contribute to the policymaking and the provision of collective goods by international organizations such as the European Union and United Nations. The diversity of the content and the representativeness of the interest groups involved have important implications for the problem-solving capacity of international organizations.
The workshop contributed new knowledge on the effects of interest groups in global governance and brought scholars and practitioners into dialogue.
