As development, implementation, and discussion of the theoretical framework are now completed, the time has come for a summary and concluding remarks: Chapter 1 leads into this study, highlighting a few landmark events in the short history of global partnerships, including the 1992 Rio Conference, the 1999 World Economic Forum Annual Meeting in Davos, and the Johannesburg Summit. Given the lack of clarity on what defines a global multi-stakeholder partnership, it then analyzes and synthesizes key definitions in the literature to arrive at a definition tailored to the needs of this study: global partnerships are voluntary and institutionalized relationships between two or more actors who jointly commit to invest resources into the production of global public goods.
