29-Aug-2016 – 17-Oct-2016
Periods: I
Language of instruction: English

The course deepens the students’ understanding of the functioning of world society and the role of epistemic governance in it. In addition to showing how world culture is seen in the global spread of world models, the course approaches the circulation of global ideas from the perspective of national actors, especially policymakers. In the national political fields, actors justify new policies by international comparisons and by the successes and failures of models adopted in other countries. Consequently, national policies are synchronized with each other. Yet, because of the way such domestication of global trends takes place, citizens retain and reproduce the understanding that they follow a sovereign national trajectory.
The lectures introduce the key ideas of the Stanford School of New Institutionalism coupled with Foucault-inspired governmentality approach and the advances made in discursive institutionalist research. Through required reading the students will get a holistic view on neoinstitutionalist global sociology.
