Adewale is a semi-finalist nominee at “The Global Challenges Prize 2017: A New Shape for Remodelling Global Cooperation”. My title of entry is “Modelling a Built Intercontinental System for Global Governance 2.0: A Global Union Model,” as a proposal for changing the present global governance system cum United Nations System, and for the transformation of International Relations. He has also received a recommendation from the Global Challenges Foundation Team to further his research work on remodelling global governance. Available from

In theory, Adewale has unmasked the Multilateralism 2.0 Vision that was previously impossible from Web 2.0 metaphor during Changing Multilateralism: The EU as a Global-regional Actor in Security and Peace project(The EU-GRASP with Project ID: 225722 that was funded between 2009-2012 under FP7–SSH by European Union Commission).

Subsequently, Adewale has developed in theory the next-core of global governance model via the synthesis of open globalization for implementing the practice of network thinking in International Relations involving diplomacy, trade, economic relations, politics and otherwise for analytical purposes by academics, experts, researchers, diplomats and others in managing our present and future global risks.

Adewale is presently falsifying the works of David Mitrany’s theory of functionalism, as the constellation of the present United Nations is approximated to be parts of the functional enterprises.Hence, the theoretical weaknesses of functional approach have been identified as the root causes of the problems of the International System. These defects would be analyzed by comparing the functional approach with the Bakarean world approach while identifying their areas of convergence and divergence for linking the International System to the built Intercontinental system in order to expand the study of Intercontinental Relations,reform the United Nations Security Council and the Economic and Social Council, and otherwise.

Adewale obtained a Master of International Affairs and Diplomacy from the Ahmadu Bello University Zaria, Nigeria and a B.Eng. in Electrical/Computer Engineering from the Federal University of Technology Minna, Nigeria.
