POLS416 Global Governance

Evaluates and applies approaches to the provision and governance of global public goods, which are collective responses to the challenges of interdependence across national boundaries and across generations.

Global integration and interdependence are reconfiguring political authority and creating a demand for institutions to provide global public goods. This paper reviews and evaluates various theoretical approaches to the global public goods. In addition, a simulation exercise is conducted dealing with real-life negotiations about the provision of a selected global public good.
