Prof. Milindo Chakrabarti has been an ardent student of collective action processes in a professional career that has been continuing for well over three decades. Besides teaching and research, he is engaged in linking academics with actions at the field level. His interest in global public goods and search for a robust and sustained institutional mechanism to ensure their adequate supplies encourage him to contribute meaningfully to initiatives that involve global collective actions. He is at present serving as a Professor with Jindal School of Government and Public Policy, O. P. Jindal Global University, India and also as a Visiting Fellow at Research and Information Systems for Developing Countries (RIS). His specialisations include South-South Cooperation and assessment of its impact on the development dynamics in the Global South. He is the Managing Editor of Development Cooperation Review, a quarterly journal devoted to chronicling the dynamics of development cooperation, in general and that of South-South Cooperation, in particular. The present global initiative at creating a proper roadmap to facilitate global public investment for provision of adequate global public goods as well as protecting the global commons is a correct step in the desired direction and motivates him to join such endeavour.
