Lecture 14. Global Governance: Sectoral Power

This is the first of two lectures on global governance. In this session, the less conventional view of global governance is taken by focussing on power and governance in global sectors both industrial and service. After explaining this approach, the nature of sectors and the various ways that they can be analysed via realism and regime theory some case studies are presented. Three case studies are considered: energy and oil is shown as a structural characteristic of global governance; an historic case study the raw material asbestos is shown as a regime dealing with a dangerous substance; and the contemporary cement sector as an illustration of the deep involvement of a sector in political objectives in a variety of societies.
