Brookings and the Global Governance Futures fellowship program

Since 2009, Brookings has been a partner institution for the Global Governance Futures fellowship program (GGF), which brings together exceptional young professionals to look 10 years into the future and think of ways to better address global challenges. The program presents a unique opportunity for young professionals to participate in international policy dialogues, train in futures research, and form a lasting network that transcends national and professional boundaries.

Brookings invites each cohort of GGF fellows to visit the Institution for an opening conference and dialogue session focused on fostering challenging discussions within and across their working groups, and to meet with prominent experts, policymakers, and business leaders.



GGF 2030 will take place over the course of 2018 and 2019. The 27 fellows – three each from Brazil, China, France, Germany, India, Indonesia, Japan, South Africa and the US – have formed three working groups focusing on the role of cities in global governance, futures of global order and global migration and refugee challenge. The fellows will meet in four dialogue sessions, where they will have the opportunity to challenge each other, exchange ideas with experts and policymakers, and develop scenarios of the future of global governance.
