    Offered in:
  • GGHS 711  Global Governance

    Description:
    This course provides an in depth overview of the rapidly proliferating literature on the nature of global governance, its architecture, pieces, actors, functions, and outcomes. Global governance itself continues to evolve, creating an increasingly complex, dense, and less coherent patchwork. The borderline between public and private activities is increasingly blurred as private companies and foundations become important providers of public goods, services, and standards. "Regime complexes" have emerged in the areas of food security, refugee protection, maritime piracy, energy, trade and the environment, and international forests. Nongovernmental organizations. (NGOs) continue to be a driving force on many policy issues and active participants in the construction of global governance for ma   More Info

  • GGHS 712  Gender and Human Security

    Description:
    Drawing on examples from across the globe, this course will explore how attention to gendered assumptions and hierarchies can refine and deepen our understandings of the way conflict, violence and (in)security are affecting everyday life, communities, societies, and regions in different parts of the world. The course will develop skills in gender analysis, and use them to evaluate the impact of culturally-specific gendered assumptions and practices on state security and realist thinking, the "new wars" of the post-Cold War period, the emergence of human security with its focus on freedom from fear and want, and the critical reactions to this move. The course aims to move beyond established approaches to security, including human security, and to develop a more gender- sensitive analysis of   More Info

  • GGHS 713  International Relations Theory

    Description:
    This course is intended to provide students with the tools to read and participate in the academic field of international relations (IR) in which discussions of global governance and human security are often embedded. Its focus is on theories of international politics and on the construction of the academic field, rather than on current world events. The course is divided into three parts. In the first we examine one of the core philosophical debates separating different understandings of international relations, that between realists and liberals. In the second we discuss approaches to international relations theory across different levels of analysis, from the level of the individual decision-maker to the level of the structure of the international system. In the third and final part we    More Info

  • GGHS 714  Doctoral Colloquium in Global Governance and Human Security

    Description:
    The goal of the colloquium is professional development, helping students to develop skills for and knowledge of academic processes that do not fit into existing topic and theoretical courses. These skills focus on the real-time analysis of work by other scholars, and the presentation of one's own work to academic and professional audiences.   More Info

    Offered in:
  • GGHS 715  International Organization

    Description:
    This course provides an in depth overview of core institutions and actors in global governance - intergovernmental organizations (IGOs) and nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) with primary emphasis on the former. IGOs provide organization structures and decisions processes that comprise elements of governance for managing a wide array of global and regional interdependence issues. The scope of the field of international organization has vastly increased in the last twenty-five years, and this course surveys both the variety of theoretical approaches to studying IGOs and the broad range of topical issues that various IGOs address.   More Info

  • GGHS 716  Global Health and Development: Concepts, Policies, and Practice

    Description:
    The course examines the evolution, key concepts and practice of global health as an emergent field. It is concerned with engaging and exploring the dominant themes, key relationships, and central questions that radiate from the trans-disciplinary field of global health. The aim is for students to critically engage the global public health questions and concerns introduced in the course. Students will apply analytical thinking skills to understand a range of global public health and development problems and trends, implications, and responses.   More Info

    Offered in:
  • GGHS 780  Doctoral Research Design

    Description:

This is the final required course in the PhD program in Global Governance and Human Security. At the end of the course, each student will have produced one or both; 1) a research proposal for his or her PhD project and 2) a grant proposal seeking the necessary funds for research.   More Info

    Offered in:
  • GGHS 781  Doctoral Research Group

    Description:
    The goal of the research group is professional development and the development of research and writing skills. These skills focus on the design and execution of research projects intended from the outset to be written up as grant proposals and for peer-reviewed journals. The focus of the class is thus on the process of writing for publication, rather than researching and writing a topic dictated by the topical focus of the class.   More Info
