What is global governance? Since the late 20th century processes of globalisation have changed possibilities of governance within and among nation-states, leading to new networks of action and policy at multiple scales from local to global. Globalisation has given rise to an array of multilateral institutions that intersect national policies; world and global cities are routinely sites of global events and lead global policy innovation; and many domestic policy arenas are now subject to global pressures and influences. More complex than ‘international’, this subject is dedicated to making sense of these complex global realities. Students will work with interdisciplinary approaches to examine how pressing global issues, including climate change, transnational migration, economic inequality and the ‘new terrorism’ are managed and governed through intersections of regulatory regimes, multilateral institutions, non-governmental organisations, social movements and citizen actions.
