    UNU-IAS Seminar: “Evaluating the Quality of Contemporary Global Governance: Theory, Analysis, Practice”

    Everyone talks about “governance” but, similar to concepts such as “sustainability”, it is little understood and made greatly over-complex.

    This presentation by Tim Cadman (Griffith University) consists of 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.

    The event is free and open to the public, but advance registration is required.For more information, see the event announcement on the UNU-IAS website.
