The New Shape Prize

At the New Shape Forum (NSF), convened by the Global Challenges Foundation in Stockholm on 27-29 May, 2018, Augusto Lopez-Claros, Arthur Dahl and Maja Groff were awarded the New Shape Prize for their proposal “Global Governance and the Emergence of Global Institutions for the 21st Century.” The Foundation considered several thousand proposals submitted from 122 countries, from think-tanks, universities, civil society organizations and individuals. The Prize was intended to stimulate original thinking on the development of new global governance mechanisms and institutions, needed to confront a range of emerging global problems which cannot be solved outside of a framework of enhanced international cooperation. This proposal has evolved into a book with the same title, featured elsewhere on this site, and will be the basis around which will evolve in coming years the work program of the Global Governance Forum.
