|Organisational Unit||Global Studies|
|Availability||MURDOCH: S2-internal, S2-external|
|Teaching Timetables||Murdoch S2
|Description||The Unit explores the differences between sovereign-level and global administrative responsibility, including discussions of representativeness, accountability, transparency, and legitimacy. We debate the power of international civil servants and their interaction with member-states and explore sector-specific concerns, such as climate change refugees, water, financial crises, and civil society interaction with the global arena.
