The webinar organized by Prof Alberto Pirnie at the institute of law, politics and development at Scuola Superiore Sant Anna in Pisa, Italy by inviting Prof Sanjay Rajhans of HSE from the Department of Public Policy, Moscow to deliver a lecture titled “Terra Incognita or more of the same: The “Democratic unease” in the post Trump period” was a timely contribution with changes that have occurred across the Atlantic in the recent past.
The existence of “global public policy” is now widely recognized, both in formal terms (e.g., internet regulation) and as international standards and norms. Without a formal world government, however, the sources and processes of global policy-making are complex and multi-dimensional, branching out well beyond formal treaty-making bodies in the UN system. Of particularly interest in this presentation is the generation of policy advice and what we call “global policy advisory systems.” In this presentation, which is a part of our master's programme course Global Actors in Public Policy, Dr. Pal highlights some of the results of a three-year study of these systems, and current work on the role of global policy summits such as the World Economic Forum and the Doha Forum.
Prof. Sanjay K. Rajhans from HSE Public Policy Department visited the University of Torino in March 2020 as a visiting professor at the Department of Cultures, Politics and Society and in April as a visiting scientist at the Department of Law within the activities of the Program "Departments of Excellence 2018-2022", funded by the Italian Ministry of University and Research.
