9780415690416: Governing the World?: Cases in Global Governance

‘Global governance’ has become a key concept in the contemporary study of international politics, yet what the term means and how it works remains in question.

Governing the World: Cases in Global Governance takes an alternative approach to understanding the concept by exploring how global governance works in practice through a set of case studies on both classical issues of international relations such as security, labour and trade, and more contemporary concerns such as the environment, international development, and governing the internet.

The book explores the processes, practice and politics of global governance by taking a broad look at issues of human rights governance and focusing on detailed aspects of a topic such as torture and rendition to help explain how governance does, or does not, work to students and researchers of international politics alike. Bringing together a diverse and international group of scholars, each chapter responds to a set of questions as to what is being governed, how and who by and offers issue-specific case studies and recommended reading to develop a full understanding of the issue explored and what it means for global governance.

About the Author:

Dr Sophie Harman is a Senior Lecturer in International Politics at City University London. She has published two books with Routledge – Governance of HIV/AIDS (edited with F. Lisk) and World Bank and HIV/AIDS – and is currently writing her third – Global Health Governance – for the Routledge series on Global Institutions. Sophie’s research interests are in the field of global health, with particular reference to the HIV/AIDS epidemic and the World Bank, and the role of financial institutions within global governance. Sophie teaches Global Governance to undergraduates and postgraduates at City.

Dr David Williams is Senior Lecturer in International Politics at City University, London. He is the author of The World Bank and Social Transformation in International Politics and a forthcoming book, International Development and Global Politics, both published with Routledge. His research straddles political theory, international politics and international development. David also teaches Global Governance at City.

Review:

In this exciting volume, Harman and Williams deftly slice the cake of global governance into some of the most important emerging policy fields. They provide a simultaneously critical and comparative framework for understanding contemporary collective action.

Alexander Betts, University of Oxford, UK.

In the fast changing domain of global governance, this collection brings fresh insight and analysis of policy concerns that cross continents and national borders to reach everyone's neighbourhood.

Diane Stone is Professor concurrently at the University of Warwick in the UK, and Murdoch University in Australia.
