The Fox Fellowship creates bonds between nations and fosters cooperation and coordination at the global scale through the development of an academic and policy community. Transnational cooperation and coordination pose distinctive challenges because of the scale of the phenomenon. Distance, borders, cultural heterogeneity, sovereign rights, political fragmentation, and increasing ethnonationalism are a few of the factors that create a unique macro-context for the problem of cooperation, in which social processes can unfold differently than in smaller, local settings. In these proceedings, we focus on the translation of problems of coordination and cooperation into the global setting to articulate and address the particularity of the challenges faced by the global community. Relevant topics include but are not limited to climate change, global health, empire and colonialism, borders, global and transnational networks, discrimination and inequality, and economic development.
