Inhoud
Who governs the world? Fifty years ago, the answer would have been straight forward: States.  Today the answer to that question is much more nuanced. Our world, and its technological developments, is governed by a complex network of national, international, EU and non-governmental institutions and bodies. This element teaches pre-master students in European Studies the key features of public (or formal) institutions, both at the national level and beyond: how these are structured, how these are governed, how they cooperate with one another. In a highly connected world, students will learn that we now live in an era of global network governance.
