Global governance covers all forms of political action involving state and/or non-state actors. At the chair, we are primarily concerned with the role of international governmental organizations, international non-governmental organizations, and corporations in transnational governance.
For example, we investigate how these different actors cooperate within governance institutions to formulate standards.
We focus, in particular, on the following policy areas
We assume that not all those actors that are affected by a problem are equally involved in the problem solving process.
We therefore primarily investigate which actors and ideas are the most powerful ones in political decision-making processes and which, in contrast are marginalized as well as possible explanations thereof.
The professorship of the chair is currently vacant.
