As a structural transformation of the international order, globalization has transferred authority away from the single state towards regional blocs and multilateral institutions. This course introduces the complex subject of global governance by analyzing the many actors, policies, processes and inherent challenges involved. Students will look at the historical development of the international society, explore the structures and roles of international organizations and analyze their complicated relations with other non-state actors. The course will also discuss current issues within global governance as well as its limitations and future prospects.


Roughly 15 minutes with a bike from the city centre, you will find Linnaeus University’s campus. It is like a small society with the university, student accommodation, and student life. Here you become part of a creative knowledge environment.

What will you come across on an excursion in Växjö – the city of contrasts? You will find good restaurants, a celebrated hockey team, and cozy cafés where you can enjoy a latte with lingonberry flavour. In Växjö, beautiful nature is always just around the corner; the city is surrounded by lakes and forests. Students like the combination of the city centre and the active student life on campus. Your dream of the future starts here!
