Research Tilburg Institute of Governance

More than ever, so it seems, the world is facing a multitude of wicked problems. The succession of crises in the European Union is emblematic for the persistent challenges that need to be tackled in the next decades. Climate change, pollution and deforestation challenge global sustainability. Tax evasion, organized crime, inequality, migration and terrorism threaten the idea of global justice. Scarcity of natural resources, lagging innovation and monetary crises undermine future global economic prosperity.

Obviously these challenges require technical solutions and strategies such as geo-engineering and innovation of production, consumption, and distribution. However, a mere technical approach will prove to be ineffective. Such an approach may offer comfort for a while, but without addressing fundamental governance issues the necessary breakthrough will stay out of reach.

These fundamental governance issues are the key focus of TIGs research projects and output. Within this overall focus TIGs research projects and output highlight three dimensions of governance. The instrumental dimension aims at co-production of governance responses to these challenges with networks of public and private institutions. The institutional dimension provides a better understanding of these networks and the logics that drive organizations that constitute governance systems. The foundational dimension scrutinizes the reinvention of key values such as publicness, democracy, and the rule of law.
