Stream Two: International Organisations and Global Issues


African Union Headquarters

In 2015, 2016, and 2017, Jochen Prantl delivered a series of major addresses at the African Union and European Union Headquarters and explored with the diplomatic corps and senior policymakers why the global power shift to Asia creates a strong demand for a strategic realignment of Africa and Europe.

Strategic Diplomacy was workshopped as a political-economic policy tool to help re-position Africa and Europe within the emerging global system in which both African and European economies will increasingly have to rely on the middle class of the Asia-Pacific.

In 2018, Prantl joined the Earth System Governance global research alliance, which is the largest social science network in the area of governance and global environmental change.


Together with a team of Brazilian scholars, he is currently leading a book project, Building Capabilities for Earth System Governance, contracted with Cambridge University Press. Utilising the Strategic Diplomacy model, the book develop a new strategic capabilities framework for studying and steering complex socio-economic systems.
