This workshop focuses on constructing an analytical framework to understand and discuss different proposals regarding global governance. The framework which will be employed is Comparative Institutional Analysis (CIA). CIA is at once an obvious and yet challenging approach to global governance. It seems obvious that analysing global governance means analysing the available and proposed governance mechanisms - institutions in our sense of the word. This task is challenging because these institutional mechanisms are all highly imperfect and their imperfections tend to parallel one another. It is common to find one-sided critiques of existing governance as though such insights provide a sufficient case for the substitution of some often idealised alternative. This is single institutional analysis. Although single institutional analysis makes for attractive if superficial rhetorical argument it is largely analytically empty. It is absolutely necessary to address the real functioning of all the relevant institutional alternatives. This is comparative institutional analysis.
