Global Governance Critical Perspectives

by Rorden Wilkinson, Steve Hughes, Craig Murphy

Global Governance Critical Perspectives Synopsis

In recent years, the role of global institutions such as the United Nations, World Trade Organization, International Monetary Fund and the World Bank has never been more important to the lives of individuals throughout the world. This edited book provides critical perspectives on the role of these institutions and how they use their policies, procedures and practices to manage global political, socio-economic, legal and environmental affairs. In contrast to previously published books on this subject, Global Governance is organized thematically rather than by institution. Each chapter examines core issues such as labour, finance, the environment, health, culture, gender, civil society, poverty and development. It should be essential reading for undergraduate students of international politics, international political economy and international economics.

The book is a very welcome stimulus to thinking about a very important subject.. -Robert W. Cox, Emeritus, York University, Toronto A remarkable and thoughtful set of essays about global governance. This book illuminates the extensive range of challenges, actors, and processes on the world stage at the dawn of the 21st Century. Throuough and thought-provoking reading for all students of contemporary international relations.. -Thomas G. Weiss, Editor, Global Governance and Presidential Professor and Director, Ralph Bunche, Institute for International Studies, The CUNY Graduate Center. Rorden Wilkinson and Steve Hughes have produced the best collection of essays yet available on the important, but notoriously slippery concept of global governance. Their aim was to interrogate the contemporary practice of global governance from a variety of theorectical and institutional perspectives and in that they have unquestionably succeeded. lo-Professor Tony Payne, Department of Politics, University of Sheffield.
