Course Syllabus

Abstract

This course is aimed to explore the phenomenon of Global Actors and the role they play in global governance. It combines learning about main characteristics of such actors and conducting individual research on providing examples of global actors and their activities. We will seek to develop a coherent definition of global actors, distinguish between their types, aims, and influence they have in the globalized world. We will pay particular attention to non-state actors, like the commercial and trade organizations and global civil society institutions as global actors. During the classes the students will learn to analyze and compare global actors, global institutions and global instruments, understand modern forms of governance interactions and other global agenda issues. We will also apply the concepts of power and explore which type of power is used by different clusters of global actors.
