Throughout the course you will gain a deeper understanding of the transnational nature of governance and diplomacy. You will analyse the transnational governance regimes that seek to address global challenges, questioning why such regimes succeed or fail, along with the politics underpinning current diplomatic practice and the obstacles to change.
