GLOBAL GOVERNANCE STUDIES (VIEWPOINTS) [ Syllabus ]
Since the 1990s, while the world has experienced the wave of globalism, it has simultaneously been haunted by the rise of regional conflicts that had erupted subsequent to the end of the Cold War. Concurrently, the international community has been facing threats emanating from the so-called failed states, mainly due to the former's inability to stabilize the situation. Furthermore, counter measures introduced by individual states to deal with challenges represented by global warming and contagious diseases like Ebola will remain less effective if not conducted comprehensively and collectively through international and/or regional institutions or forums. This class will consider a variety of issues that require multilateral mechanism of governance.
