This study offers a valuable sightline onto areas of innovation for anew generation of global governance scholarship. In particular, byframing key organisations and initiatives as sites of intervention and contestation, scholars can shed light on the endogenous causes ofconflicts and struggles as functions of international organisationsthemselves, as opposed to ?seeing global politics as an epiphenomenonof struggles between independent units?. This is evidenced by two keydomains of economic relations between China and the EU: (1) China andthe EU in the WTO and (2) the Belt and Road Initiative and Chineseforeign direct investment (FDI) in Europe. Puncturing the cooperationbias which permeated much first generation global governancescholarship is an important first step to arriving at an appreciationof the politics of ?making? global governance and the distributivestruggles involved, jettisoning linear accounts of changing globalpower dynamics. It also invites observers to take seriously conflictover norms, values, ideas and identities ? issues that globalgovernance scholars have too often shied away from. Finally, such aneffort can shed light on some of the practical challenges of globalpolicy-making and delivery in the 21st century and the pressingquestion of ?what works??
