We study an analogue of the Brauer-Manin obstruction to the local-global principle for embedding problems over global fields. We will prove the analogues of several fundamental structural results. In particular we show that the Brauer-Manin obstruction is the only one to strong approximation when the embedding problem has abelian kernel and show that the analogue of the algebraic Brauer-Manin obstruction is equivalent to the analogue of the abelian descent obstruction. In the course of our investigations we give a new, elegant description of the Tate duality pairing and prove a new theorem on the cup product in group cohomology. (Joint work with Tomer Schlank.)
