Event Description 

Everyone talks about governance, and 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.
