About the Network

The Institute for Global Law and Policy encourages academic collaboration and progressive research to nurture alternative ideas about international law, society, and political economy. Over the few last years, we have developed a large global network of scholars and policy makers who share our belief that ideas matter, and our commitment to new voices and viewpoints for thinking about global governance, social justice and economic policy. Our common goal is to better understand how power is exercised in the world today, and how original and critical thinking can transform the ways in which policy experts, intellectual leaders and citizens understand our common global situation.

This IGLP network portal is designed to strengthen that network and to assist all those who share our critical impulse and concern about the ideas which govern our world to share new ideas, events, research, and experiences with others in the field. This space is designed to be a haven of collaboration and sharing, all with the purpose of advancing global governance thinking and ideas.

Members of the IGLP community are encouraged to reach out to the IGLP staff  to share their work, syllabi and their ideas through the Network News, New Thinking/New Writing, Events of Interest, or Working Papers sections of our website.

We encourage people in the Network to share events of interest with us, so that they may be disseminated to others in the Network. The community can also connect with each other by posting on IGLP’s Facebook following us on Twitter and by signing up to join our Mailing List. We also encourage all interested scholars to Apply to IGLP: The Workshop!
