      Council on Foreign RelationsGlobal Governance Update
      June 2012

      Dear Colleague:

      From the NATO and Group of Eight (G8) summits in the United States to the Nuclear Security Summit in South Korea, the global agenda is only getting more crowded. In recent months, the International Institutions and Global Governance program has contributed to broader foreign policy debates on emerging flashpoint issues and long-term trends by updating a component of the Global Governance Monitor on nuclear nonproliferation, launching a new roundtable series on transnational organized crime, and holding several high-level workshops. We are also excited to announce the launch of a new online Web feature, the Council of Councils (CoC) "Global Roundup."

      As we continue to develop new ideas, publications, and tools to illuminate contemporary global issues, we invite you to read our newsletter, explore our website, and "like" us on Facebook.

      All the best,

      Stewart M. Patrick
      Senior Fellow and Director of the International Institutions and Global Governance Program

      Launching the Global Roundup

      IIGG has launched the "Global Roundup," a monthly collection of opinions from international experts on major global events and breaking news. The series is part of the Council of Councils (CoC) initiative, which aims to connect leading foreign policy institutes from around the world in a common conversation on issues of global governance and multilateral cooperation. The first roundup addresses the selection of Jim Yong Kim to succeed Robert Zoellick as president of the World Bank as an opportunity to reform the institution. In the second roundup, experts from four CoC partner organizations discuss what the NATO alliance can do to remain relevant as a force for international peace and security.
