Global governance challenges of the 21st century

July 2021
Salma Daoudi & Marcus de Freitas

With the intensification of globalization dynamics, risks to the stability of the international system have grown to the extent that formerly localized threats are no longer locally containable. Ethnic conflicts, infectious diseases, climate change, food insecurity, and other pressing threats, are increasingly threatening global security and stability, prompting doubts about the ability of the current global governance order to respond to the challenges plaguing the 21st century. In this podcast, Marcus de Freitas, Senior Fellow at the Policy Center for the New South, discusses all these pressing issues.
