About the Course

As global interdependence grows, structures of international and transnational governance are becoming ever more complex. This course provides an overview of processes and variable outcomes in global governance. In the framework of this course, the students will become familiar with competing perspectives on globalization and global governance, the sources and consequences of global power and authority, as well as the key actors, institutions, regimes, and norms of global governance. Finally, the course also explores possible ways of improving the capacity of the international community as a whole to deal with global challenges. Throughout, the course addresses diverse empirical cases, how and why processes differ across different issue areas as well as ways in which global governance might be reformed to produce better outcomes. These cases deal with, inter alia, how to realize human rights, address environmental problems and climate change, resolve health emergency situations and regulate finance at the regional and global level.
