General description

This course involves a conceptual and theoretical exploration of multilateralism and global governance which are key orientating literatures within the field of international organization.  Multilateralism has been understood as an institutional form, a particular type of diplomatic process and as a particular sub-type of negotiation theory, among others.  Global governance focuses on the authoritative rules, norms, institutions and practices of the international community as it manages its common affairs in the absence of global government. The course involves deep consideration of both concepts and how they have evolved, probing for areas of overlapping concern and distinctive approaches.  In individual research projects and presentations, students use the concepts and theories of multilateralism and global governance to assess a specific policy domain.
