  Add to Calendar 2016-06-14 16:00 2016-06-14 18:00 Europe/Paris Europe in the World Research Seminar / Borderlands Project seminar by Prof. Amitav Acharya: Why Govern? Rethinking Demand and Progress in Global Governance

The system of international cooperation built after World War II around the UN is facing unprecedented challenges. Globalisation has magnified the impact of challenges of managing security threats, human rights abuses, mass atrocities, climate change, refugee, trade and financial flows, pandemics and cyberspace traffic. No single nation, however powerful, can solve them on its own. International cooperation is necessary, yet difficult to build and sustain. Rising powers such as China, India, and Brazil seek greater leadership in international institutions, whose authority and legitimacy are also challenged by a growing number of civil society networks, private entities, and other non-state actors. Against this backdrop, what is the future of global governance? This seminar, drawing upon a study of global governance edited by Amitav Acharya, will examine the challenges and opportunities facing global cooperation and its implications for multilateralism and global order.
