Miles Kahler, Distinguished Professor, American University

Global governance has received mixed reviews over the past decade. For some observers, "the system worked” during the global financial crisis and more recently at the COP21 climate negotiations. For others, global institutions, such as the WTO, confront gridlock and stagnation. A new regionalism threatens fragmentation of the global order. Newly influential actors - NGOs, MNCs, and emerging economies - engage with core issues of global governance, but the net effect of their activity is unclear. At the same time, domestic political support for multilateralism in the rich countries seems to erode. What are the prospects for global governance when measured against past performance and contemporary demands?
