Governance in a Globalizing World

Charles Sampford
Director, Institute for Ethics, Governance and Law
(a joint initiative of UNU, Griffith University, Australian National University, Queensland University of Technology and Jindal University in Delhi)
Foundation Dean and Professor of Law and Research Professor in Ethics, Griffith University


Seminar Description

Charles Sampford will discuss an approach to interdisciplinary governance research that combines the insights of law, ethics, politics and economics. He will discuss its application to the various subjects of governance research (international, regional, national, sub-national, corporate and professional institutions) and, in particular to global governance challenges, in which weaknesses at one institutional "level" are exacerbated by weaknesses in other levels—such as the Global Financial Crisis and the "Global Carbon Crisis".
