GLOBUS is a research project that critically examines the European Union’s contribution to global justice.
Challenges to global justice are multifaceted and what is just is contested. Combining normative and empirical research GLOBUS explores underlying political and structural obstacles to justice. Analyses of the EU’s positions and policies are combined with in-depth studies of non-European perspectives on the practices of the EU. Particular attention is paid to the fields of migration, trade and development, cooperation and conflict, and climate change.
The EU’s approach to crisis management is characterised by a prioritisation of state consent and neutrality rather than engaging in conflict resolution and giving local stakeholders a voice, says Ben Tonra.
GLOBUS has eight partner universities in Brazil, China, Germany, India, Ireland, Italy, Norway, and South Africa.
GLOBUS yields knowledge of direct relevance to a wide range of policy stakeholders working on themes related to global justice and the EU's role in the world.
