The OCGG 2.0 – The Road to the Future

The OCGG is a global think tank passionately working for a better future for humanity.

We are at the moment undertaking a strategic review of how the organization can proceed to the next level in its pursuit of a better world.

From 2003 to 2009, we offered publications to the general public (all available here on our website) in addition to our main goal of providing actionable advice through face-to-face meetings with political leaders.

Since 2010, we have focused exclusively on our key objective of interacting directly with high level policy makers.

In 2013, we embarked on our strategic review, a critical re-think of not only the formats and destinations of our advice set out in our core mission for a value-adding organization but also of our fundamental analytical, ethical, and agenda-setting framework that underpins our overarching vision for a better world.

Our aim is to in the light of both world developments and academic advances develop the OCGG 2.0, an organization that unlike most think tanks is not content with tweaking the policies and institutions of a global system that is increasingly out-of-date and out-of-touch but instead addresses the worrying rise of contemporary challenges to basic human dignity – from extreme poverty via total surveillance and “civilized” torture to the glaring gap between global narratives and global realities – as well as articulates the promising groundswell of emerging moves towards a true global democracy.
