About this Unit
Global governance is an increasingly important regulatory tool in an age of hyper-globalisation. Issues for study include: the roles of non-state actors and influences in global politics, from the United Nations to the broader global economy, from NGOs to terrorist regimes. Globalization implies a loss of control, particularly state control, or loss of sovereignty over issues such as security, environment, migration, finance/money/ investment, intellectual property, trade, manufactures, health, and infectious disease control. As such, it reveals new spheres of common interests that transcend states’ interests. This development opens the way for a more prominent role in the system for international law, formal regimes, and multilateral intergovernmental organisations. This system of formal and informal institutions and rules has come to be known as a system of global governance.
