Council of Councils: Report Card on International Cooperation 2016-2017
Global thinktank leaders grade
on the world's performance and prospects

Global thinktank leaders see only the limited progress even in combating climate change which is the most opportunities for breakthrough in previous year. They also say internal cooperation deserves a low grade of a C- as an overall grade.


The annual Report Card in 2017 on international cooperation lowered its assessment
of efforts to mitigate the top 10 global afflicting issues in 2016 to a C- from a B
in previous year.

This year's Report Card on international cooperation sharply downgraded overall grade
to a C- from B in 2015 and gave a C to preventing and responding to violent conflict between states which should be considered as the top priority for world leaders in 2017.
Also, thinktanks' leaders indicated that fighting terrorism held the most potential for progress in 2017. Although this was graded a mediocre score of C, it is the only issue that leaders saw some improvement form 2016.

About the Council of Councils Report Card on International Cooperation 2016-2017

The Council of Councils (CoC) Report Card on International Cooperation evaluates multilateral efforts to address ten of the world's most pressing global challenges, from combating transnational terrorism to advancing global health. No country can confront these issues better on its own. Combating the threats, managing the risks, and exploiting the opportunities presented by globalization require international cooperation.
To help policymakers around the world prioritize among these challenges, the CoC Report Card on International Cooperation surveyed the Council of Councils, a network of twenty-six foreign policy institutes around the world.
Respondents were asked to assess the state of international cooperation on five dimensions:

  • How did the world do overall on international cooperation in 2016?
  • How did the world do, in terms of performance, over the past year in addressing each challenge?
  • How should these challenges be ranked, in terms of their relative importance, for 2017?
  • Which of these problems offers the greatest opportunity for breakthrough in 2017?
  • What one reform would do the most to improve international cooperation on each issue in 2017?
