The world appears mired in discord. Disagreements seem to be proliferating among major and smaller powers alike, within alliances and across the Global North and Global South. Backlash against globalization has many observers worried that processes of de-globalization and fragmentation will undermine foundational elements of global governance. And that the world will be prevented from successfully meeting the big challenges of the 21st century. But not everyone shares this outlook. Other observers point to heightened levels and sophistication of international cooperation. They add that international cooperation has always been hard, that populists often are displaced, and that global structures have overcome existential threats in the past. This interdisciplinary course examines rival perspectives that inform debates about the state of global governance. With examples from the earliest periods of global governance to the present age, the course features studies of discord and cooperation in the global political, economic, and security areas.
