Conceptual Gaps on Global Governance between China and the EU
The concept of global governance has emerged as a central challenge to European policymakers. Intellectual and political engagement with global governance first arose with the Cold War’s end and the concurrent emergence of globalization; however, contemporary debates on global governance have taken on a different quality in terms of both content and political relevance. Ongoing global power shifts, the emergence of the G20 and other new decision-making forums and an increasing number of global challenges that are interdependent and transnational in nature and require joint management have lent engagement with global governance considerable urgency.
