The MGI Book Project

The MGI book project involves a multinational and multidisciplinary group of scholars and analysts from around the world. Each expert has been asked to write a chapter on one of the sixteen global problems identified. These chapters identify the successes and failures of international and transnational governance approaches in these particular problem areas and examine the conditions for their effective use. This provides the basis for a broad comparative analysis across problem areas and for the formulation of specific recommendations for governments; international organizations, non-governmental organizations and others actively involved in transnational and national governance.

The projected publication date is Fall 2001.
