Out of 2,702 submissions from over 122 countries across the world, Adewale is a semi-finalist in “the Global Challenge Prize 2018: A New Shape”and subsequently in “the Educators’ Challenge Prize 2019” for unmasking a UN 2.0 System, Multilateralism 2.0 and a new field of Intercontinental Relations that was formerly impossible. Both competitions are uniquely historic, and the biggest calls for 21st century models of global governance and its educational tools by Swedish Global Challenges Foundation (GCF).

Following Adewale’s overall performance as a groundbreaking Independent Researcher, and Contributor to the EU funded FP7 programme for Changing Multilateralism: The European Union as a Global-Regional Actor for Security and Peace (the EU-GRASP) Project (2009-2012) at the two biggest calls by GCF; the research article “A UN 2.0 System, Multilateralism 2.0 and its Educational Tools Unmasked from Interpreting a Formerly Impossible Web 2.0 Metaphor” has been recognised (2019) by the European Commission’s primary source of results. The article is currently featured on the web portal of Community Research and Development Information Service. Available from (accessed 6 October, 2020).

Furthermore, Adewale has developed a Global Union Model from Unified World Approach as the core of Global Governance 2.0, and with an attribute of a World Government that cooperates with identity-based Regional Organizations, in order to rebuild trust among the world’s people. As part of this model, an Openist Approach to International Relations Theory has led to the discovery of new educational fields of Intercontinental Relations and Global Governance 2.0 with the following sub-fields as Intercontinental System, Open State System, Open globalization and Diplomacy, Open International Law, or Intercontinental Law, Intercontinental Political Economy, Intercontinental Politics, Intercontinental Trade, Intercontinental Development for borderless Regional Integration, Cooperation and Sustainable Global Development.

Moreover, the crux of this groundbreaking research is to spur the fluidity of open globalization for implementing network thinking and practice in order to predict global, regional and local outcomes, analyze geopolitical events and world affairs, negotiate needs, develop and regulate our global commons through the application of Open International Law, or Intercontinental Law. While the Regional Organizations are responsible in putting legal obligations on its member States for improving global governance, human security and happiness.

Consequently, Adewale has successfully developed a state-of-the-art approaches, axioms, frameworks, theories and models of global governance for building back better our State-centric global decision-making structures and institutions. Therefore, an updated People-and-Region-centric (or Democratic) UN 2.0 System is linked to the former as the symbol of Global Governance 2.0 and the core of a people-centered Multilateralism, for tackling global challenges and addressing global catastrophic risks that we are all faced today.

In order to bring the idea of our next global governance system to reality, Adewale has participated in the world’s biggest conversation for the future we want, the UN we need and shared this idea through Social Media like Twitter, LinkedIn and Facebook to #make2020count, #makeUN75count #multilateralismmatters, #UN75, #UN2020, #ShapingOurFuture, #multilateralism, #standforpeace, @UN, @JoinUN75 to mention but few. In addition, Adewale as a supporter of the core values of Together First has participated in a highly interactive online consultations (2020) with different experts across the world. At the end of this consultation, the proposal for “Implementing UN 2.0 System and Multilateralism 2.0 for Remodelling Global Cooperation” has been included to be part of Together First’s idea hub, for public endorsement. Available from (accessed 6 October, 2020).

Meanwhile, Adewale obtained a Masters degree in International Affairs and Diplomacy from the Ahmadu Bello University Zaria, Nigeria, and holds a Bachelor of Engineering degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the Federal University of Technology Minna, Nigeria.

Aside contributing to the academic world; Adewale has been involved in activism for global governance reforms, as a member of Coordination Team of Together First that is campaigning for a multi-stakeholder platform to mark UN’s 75th Anniversary, as the starting point of global governance transformation. Currently, 10 ideas as stepping stones for a better have been considered ahead of 2020 Leaders Summit for campaign and implementation in the foreseeable future.

Finally, Adewale is a supporter of UN Parliamentary Network for the formation of UN Parliamentary Assembly, and a!so supports the activities of UN2020 Initiative as a member of Coordination Group that is taking stock, and strengthening the UN System in partnership with civil society, governments, and the UN in support of a people-centered Multilateralism.
