Global Governance and Domestic Politics: Fragmented Visions
Global governance is mostly studied as a top-down project. The meaning of the concept is analyzed and investigated from the perspective of a designated concept of the “global.” Such investigations focus rightfully on questions such as “How is the global defined?” “What does it replace?” “How valid is it?” “What and whom does it favor?” or more affirmatively, “How does it work?” and “How can it be done better?” In this chapter, we aim to alter the order of the investigation by focusing on how this influential contemporary Western idea can be understood by exploring its meaning and use in domestic settings. Our study of global governance thus aims to further the exploration of how global governance practices and discourses are produced and materialized in specific contexts.1 Within such a perspective, our focus is to identify and question the types of actors that emerge from the practices of global governance, the ways in which institutionalized power relations emerge amongst these actors, and how global governance practices frame or are reflected in domestic normative orders.
