Applied Global Governance: Problems and Solutions
Each year, this course focuses on a global governance challenge that a faculty member is engaged with (climate change, human security, conflict transformation, global development practices, etc.) Through a select case study, students explore how this particular global governance challenge has come to be framed as a problem, what actors are engaged, what solutions have been proposed, and what resources are available to support action. Students also examine the processes and institutions through which action can be taken. Finally, the course explores the constraints on action, and why global responses are often insufficient.
