Evaluating the Quality of Contemporary Global Governance: Theory, Analysis, Practice

Tim Cadman 
Research Fellow, Key Centre for Ethics, Law, Justice and Governance and the Institute for Ethics, Governance and Law at Griffith University

Venue: Meeting Room 1, UNU-IAS
Pacifico-Yokohama, 1-1-1 Minato Mirai
Nishi-ku, Yokohama


Event Description

Everyone talks about governance but, similar to concepts such as "sustainability", it is little understood and made greatly over-complex. This presentation is in three parts. Part one provides a definition of global governance, and applies three guiding questions to assist in its analysis. Part two looks at traditional concepts of governance in international relations, and explores current directions and developments in governance theory, using these to provide a preliminary analysis and draw some conclusions. Part three explores the impacts of applied theory on governance in the field, looking at a number of case studies undertaken by the researcher.
