    This new module explores the notion of global governance from the particular perspective of civil society and Non-Governmental Organisations (NGOs). What we are essentially concerned with here are, first, the extent to which trans-national networks of power can be said to exist; second, to explore which actors dominate and are empowered within such networks, which are excluded and why; third, the extent to which it is viable and appropriate to use the term "global civil society" to describe aspects of social movement and NGO behaviour; and fourthly, whether the concept of global governance helps us to understand better the interactions between state, non-state, market and civil society actors in various locations, regions, policy processes and issue regimes.n Associate student registration: Autumn Semester POL/242A; Spring Semester POL/242B.
    Assessment: 40.0% Coursework, 60.0% Examination
