This subject introduces you to core concepts of global governance, including areas of evolution and innovation necessitated by Twenty-First Century challenges. You will examine global governance from diverse perspectives, the dominant though still formative framework of the prevailing era of globalisation. Foundational views of world governance include those of the United Nations system, the idea of governance through a hegemon (now contested for the USA), and the concert of powers as an expression of a multipolar distribution of power. Recent multilateral approaches factor in corporate, non-government and civil society sectors of activity. You will learn to assess distinctive conceptual models, including integrative regionalism (exemplified by the EU), actor-networks (as indicated by global city interactions), areas of governance innovation (orbital space, AI and digital norms), and alternative forms of civilisational and popular representation. Having examined these concepts, you will develop an ability to consider their application to selected global issues. Innovating Global Governance will give you an opportunity to develop a concept of world governance that draws from existing models or incorporates new features.
