Founded in 2017, the mission of the Center for International Law and Governance is to promote sustainable and pragmatic solutions to managing global challenges. Led by international lawyers, the Center leverages the expertise of Fletcher faculty in a variety of disciplines, and brings a new perspective to the study of global governance.

In an era of globalization, we face more collective challenges than ever before. As national and international bodies try to keep pace with an increasingly interconnected world, the Center for International Law and Governance provides multi-dimensional policy advice. At the CILG, Fletcher professors from varied disciplines examine the most pressing issues of international concern, and translate their research into practical advice. Economic relations, security, migration, the environment and technological change are among contemporary challenges that must be dealt with on a global scale. Through the CILG, the Fletcher School engages with policy-makers in order to better understand and act on these complex phenomena.
