This course introduces students to the structures, practices, and norms of global governance.  The course begins with a consideration of core theoretical concepts, including governance, globalisation, power, authority, and legitimacy, before then briefly contextualising the evolving trend towards global governance within the larger history of the modern state system.  We then consider debates on global governance as they pertain to the following broad areas: (a) global governance and the regulation of organised violence (b) global economic governance and (c) global governance and the evolving human rights agenda.  The course concludes with some reflections on the long-term trajectory and future prospects of the global governance project.
