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, as well as climate change.

In this article in Cooperation and Conflict, Johanne Døhlie Saltnes argues that the European Union chose not to sanction Rwanda because of concerns over the negative impact of sanctions on the social and economic conditions in the country.
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.
