To enable students to analyze and discuss key elements of gender and global governance theories in relation to empirical cases and reflect on these on a scientific basis.

Global governance addresses the management of transnational issues by international organizations, non-state actors and sovereign states with a particular focus on informal processes and activities of governing. Contemporary challenges to global governance include, amongst other, democratic problems of legitimacy, authority and accountability as well as trends towards increased nationalism, populism and de-democratization.
