Global Governance

Probably the biggest challenge of 2015 is a global, geopolitical one, getting governments to actually talk to one another. I think the best thing I’ve heard at Davos this year was John Hickenlooper saying, ‘If you really want to persuade someone else, listen harder.’ I think that’s a great message for governments.

Watch a clip of Ngaire Woods, dean of the Blavatnik School of Government, University of Oxford, at the World Economic Forum’s Annual Meeting 2015 in Davos above, and catch up with her full session on global governance, here.
