Aims and Focus of the Workshop

The current financial crisis exemplifies the limits and the capacities of nation states to unilaterally solve economic problems. The deterioration of the environment and global warming also show that no country can solve environmental issues alone. The notion of sovereignty is being defied by the global challenges humankind is facing. In this context, international and transnational institutions become even more crucial to cope with problems that reach across country borders and affect the entire world.

However, at a time when global governance is most needed, there is simultaneously a sense of impossibility and incapacity of reaching international consensus and agreement (e.g. global financial regulation, Doha round trade negotiation, climate change agreements). Still, there are plenty of examples of international agreements, standards, institutions, and rules globally accepted and enforced.

The aim of the “Barcelona Workshop on Global Governance” is to provide a venue for the study of global institutions from an institutional and organization design perspective. While most research on international organizations has used global institutions as the platforms where states –the fundamental units– interact, this workshop will focus on international governmental organizations (IGOs) themselves as the building blocks of global governance. Research has been scarce on the institutional design and analysis of international organizations, compared to other aspects related to global governance.
