It currently operates as one of IHDP’s core projects. IDGEC sponsors and coordinates research on the roles that institutions play as determinants of the course of human/environmental interactions with respect to global environmental change. The project aims to generate knowledge about social institutions and, at the same time, to build and disseminate the intellectual capital needed to devise policies to mitigate global environmental change problems.
The Multilaterals Project: This is an ongoing project at The Fletcher School of Tufts University to make available the texts of international multilateral conventions and other instruments.

Most of the texts date from 1945 or later, but the collection also includes historical texts, from the 1648 Treaty of Westphalia to the Covenant of the League of Nations.
