Course synopsis: Has global governance backfired? Conflict and dislocation, social protest and poverty borne out of a series of profound economic and political blunders, have exposed the inability of international organisations in their present form to mitigate national and regional crises. How to respond to burgeoning challenges of scarce resource allocation, unfair distribution of power and wealth, and an ingrained imbalance between large and small states? Do we accept future global politics as a 'state of anarchy' or do we further institutionalise them?

The aim of this course is to expose the necessary reforms required of ASEAN, the EU and the UN. It looks at the historical origins, contemporary institutional and policy debates with a comparative and lesson-learning approach, previously exclusively reserved for studies of the nation-state.

This course serves as an excellent platform for students interested in international relations, law and global governance, providing the tools and information to form opinions and to debate the most pressing issues facing international global governance today. The course includes a one-day trip to Paris to visit the OECD and the UN UNESCO.





The fee is £1295 and various discounts apply with partner universities. Please see:http://www.kcl.ac.uk/study/summerschool/feesandfinance/finance.aspx
