Basics of Course
Global governance: comprised of all of the political, institutional, and intangible elements
that compose the international systems; NOT government
o Government is top-down, hierarchical, has capacity to enforce, has distinct political
structure--> not the case at international level
o International organizations don't have enforcement structures to impose political
decisions on states- states have monopoly on enforcement
Can agree to cede enforcement to organizations, but very little, and always with
consent of states
o Global governance is the sum of the informal and formal ideas, values, norms,
procedures, and institutions, that help all actors (state, intergovernmental orgs (IGOs),
civil society, multinational corporations (MNC)) identify and address trans-boundary
issues
States: monopoly on enforcement
IGOs: institutions of global governance- different than MNCs and civil society
International organizations: actor within the definition of global governance
o Often used synonymously with global governance, not exactly accurate
o Both actors and institutions
o An organization founded by 3 or more states
o Types- Created by States
Global:
UN (and all programs under it, like ICC, ICJ)
o Global Compact- exception to the PPP rule- is a PPP, but is also a UN
program, so doesn't really fit with either category of created by states or
not)
WTO
IMF
Regional:
NATO
EU
ASEAN
Regional UN Programs
Groups
G7
G20
Convention Secretariats
o Types- Not Created by States
Public-Private Partnerships (PPPs)
MNCs- can overlap with PPPs
Can also be founded by states- state run companies, but will not consider these
to be international organizations- typically founded by a single state
NGOs
