POG 225 Global Governance

This course will introduce students to the emerging institutions and practices of global governance, how they are reconfiguring the relative powers and sovereignty of nation states and how they are being contested by critical social movements. These institutions and practices include: the International Monetary Fund (IMF), World Bank (WB), World Trade Organization (WTO), free trade agreements, and the US-led war against terrorism. The course will focus on political and economic restructuring in the post-Cold War period but will situate contemporary developments against the history of the post WWII period and its modes of global governance.
