Challenges to Governance HPP403

Hobart

Note:

Unit offered subject to sufficient enrolment numbers

Introduction

`Government` as a set of institutions is no longer synonymous with `government` as a process. As a result, the term 'governance' is increasingly used to account for a growing number of situations where governance occurs without government. The reasons for this reflect not only a shift in the boundaries of the State, and a `hollowing out` of government, but fundamental shifts in the competences of different levels of government, as local and global forces both undermine and overlay the capacity of nation-states in some areas, but strengthen the hand of nation-states in others. The increasing importance of non-governmental actors further complicates this picture.

Added to this institutional complexity, the complexity of issues such as global trade and investment, climate change and other environmental risks, and reactions by those threatened or disadvantaged by these developments pose an interesting set of challenges for governance. This subject will explore selected aspects of these issues.
