DESCRIPTION

This unit examines the contributions of non-governmental organisations (NGOs) to global governance. It begins by investigating some of the difficulties in conceptualising and defining NGOs (and other organisational forms including global civil society and global social movements), raising questions about their legitimacy, transparency and representativeness in global policymaking. With a focus on the relationships between NGOs, nation-states and intergovernmental organisations, attention is paid to the roles of NGOs in global policy areas relating to economic cooperation, environmental sustainability and human rights. Particular emphasis is placed on the campaigning methods adopted by NGOs in seeking to impact policymaking at the global level. The overall aim of the unit is to encourage students to critically assess the ways and extent to which NGOs 'make a difference' in global governance.
