POLI 2541 Global Governance (Fall: 3 )

Course Description

How do states and other actors in the international community manage global challenges? What are the sources of order in international politics? In the absence of world government, questions about how international rules are made, monitored, and enforced are important and widespread. This course provides an overview of the concept and theories of global governance, with a focus on power, institutions, and norms in contemporary international relations. It then examines the processes, actors, and outcomes of global governance in the context of policy areas such as human rights, fragile states, the global economy, and the environment.
