PSC380.28 Global Governance, Origins, Characteristics and Challenges

Taught in Spanish at Pontificia Universidad Católica and may not be offered every semester. Global governance is a key issue on the international agenda. It refers to efforts to respond collectively to problems that affect peace, security and development worldwide through the establishment of international institutions. This course aims to provide conceptual and analytical tools to understand the characteristics of multilateral institutions within the framework of which states and non-state actors negotiate global governance initiatives. The thematic axes throughout the course will be the conflict between North and South, the ability of international organizations to promote cooperation between states, the impact of non-state actors (companies, networks of experts, civil society) on global governance and the role of emerging powers (China, India and Brazil) in multilateral institutions. Against this background, we will seek to outline what the future of global governance is.
