What are global challenges?

We are looking for a bachelor student who is interested in the concept of Global Challenges. Scientists and policy makers are increasingly focussed on addressing global challenges such as climate change, migration, or 'feeding the world'. As the notion of global challenges has become ubiquitous, this thesis will investigate its origins and negotiations: who decides what counts as a global challenge? who gets to decide how the challenge is addressed? You can integrate this topic with more specific case studies and focus on a particular geographic area.
