Power and Global Governance

Introduction to Global Actors and Global Governance

  • Who are the main global state and non-state actors?

  • What is the difference between an IGO and an NGO?

  • How is global governance different from state governance?

We will look at these questions through some readings and through a drawing activity and debrief.


  • What is power?

  • What does power in the 21st century look like?

  • How is power shifting between states and from states to non-state actors?

In this lesson, we will explore these questions through a presentation and TED Talk by Joseph Nye, historian, diplomat and author of The Future of Power.
