POL261 Power in Global Governance

POL261 Power in Global Governance

Credits: 15
Semester: 2

Module Convenor: Dr Andreas Papamichail

Description: Much of the fabric of multilateralism and international organisation appears to be threatened by 'populism'. Powerful political forces are re-asserting the national sovereignty principle. For some theorists, this development is inevitable given the lack of a global hegemon willing and able to enforce international co-operation. Others, however, point to the continued globalisation of certain ways of governing state and society. On this module we will examine this debate using case studies such as Ebola, tobacco, logistics, tax evasion, drugs and sport.
