About Global Governance and Regional Integration (BIGSSS) at Jacobs University Bremen

Research in this program falls into three groups:

  • The emergence of global or regional governance and the dynamics of decision-making
  • The effectiveness of global and regional governance
  • Conflict, contestation, and legitimacy in global and regional governance

The field on global governance and regional integration addresses the relationships between political, social, legal, historical, and economic developments in the "post-national constellation", that is, after the demise of the nation state as container. It considers supranationalization (European integration) and globalization as part of "a continuum of internationalization" and studies the phenomenon of political integration, comparing processes and outcomes at different levels and in different regions. Traditional forms of intergovernmental politics are being complemented or superseded by international and supranational regulatory regimes. Private actors, such as NGOs and multinational enterprises, have also become more involved in the international sphere, generating what has become known as "transnational" governance. The result is the emergence of hybrid forms of governance that mix public, private, "hard" (legally binding) and "soft" (based on persuasion and advice) governance.

    Bremen is my home town and the city I spend 17 years living and growing from and with it. Studying at Jacobs gave me the chance to show friends from all over the world beautiful places in Bremen and their surroundings they have never seen before. From my own experiences, I enjoyed, in my 2 years of traveling after high school, the contact with locals, and the authenticity you get to explore. Jacobs is the perfect place to meet open-minded people that are aiming memories you will never forget.
