Governance & Human Rights
Conveners: Alison Brysk and Michael Stohl
The Governance and Rights Hub investigates and analyzes global patterns of rights, rule, policy, and institutions. Concerns include Who rules urgent problems that cross borders? How effectively? Are they legitimate? What are the shifting relationships in and among states, markets, global institutions, and global civil society? How do these global patterns of governance affect the rights and empowerment of individuals and communities? What’s new in the “21st Century Global Dynamics” of this process?
