In July, EWI convened the first meeting of the Global Leadership Consortium (GLC). The GLC is a network of the world’s leading "think-and-do" tanks, from Beijing to Dubai, collaborating to create effective new approaches to some of the world’s global security challenges. Its goal is to convene a learning and action network of solutions-oriented leaders and their institutions to address the new reality that in a rapidly globalizing world, no single nation — and no single think-tank — can be an effective global problem-solver as single actors.
