The New Global Governance Architectures on Grand Challenges and State Capacity

    Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperResearchpeer-review


    During the past decade there has been a rapid emergence of new forms of global governance architectures seeking to address grand challenges. International organizations and other strong actors in the global scene have been setting up new, ambitious, open-ended and solutionoriented architectures. Aiming to address some specifically identified grand challenges the new governance architectures are creating broader and sustained conditions for problemsolving. But the extent to which they are able to generate the expected transformative change at the domestic level is an empirical question that remains open. This paper provides a framework for analyzing that by focusing on three main mediating factors at the domestic level, namely, the knowledge absorptive capacity of domestic actors, their organizational capacity, and their legitimacy as the communicative capacity with which they articulate needs and visions about how go about it.
