The “Global Governance” track nurtures future leaders in the international public sphere, equipping them with essential skills and knowledge to sustain democratic ideals and human rights values. Through a comprehensive curriculum and practical experiences, students develop expertise in policy, law, and cross-cultural communication. Emphasizing ethical leadership, the program fosters inclusivity, ethics, and digital governance.
Building upon this premise, GG covers a broad spectrum of social science approaches and cross-cutting areas. In regards to professional development and training, this special track draws on four major research axes – Science, Technology and Society; Global Environmental Governance; Spaces, Places, and Connections; and Global Civil Society – to develop relevant thematic courses.
We design the GG track to help students to look beyond the short-term, functional purpose of job security. We aim to guide students to envisage how one could prepare oneself with professional ability and critical visions in light of situating in an increasingly contingent, dynamic, and unstable world.
We hope that students will be able to (a) comprehend and appreciate the complexity of our living worlds, which are simultaneously natural, social, and technical in their multiplicity, limitation, and vulnerability; (b) develop the ability to reflect, critique, negotiate, and act; (c) have a vision for inclusive societies and appreciate multiple worldviews and possibilities of problem-solving. In brief, this track seeks to assist students in exploring and developing creative approaches to ‘staying with the trouble’ on their life journeys.
