International Administration and Global Governance

International Administration and Global Governance involves everything from international agreements, declarations, and protocols to ideas and norms, from development aid to foreign policies. International trade, social and economic development, environmental protection, human rights, security, democratisation, state capacity development, and gender equality are all increasingly treated at the regional, transnational and international levels. In our programme, we explore and analyse the intentional and unintentional effects of both action and inaction by entities from international organisations and states to epistemic communities, NGOs, and citizen activists.

A wide-ranging and interdisciplinary learning experience

The International Administration and Global Governance programme of the University of Gothenburg is offered jointly by the Department of Economics, the Department of Political Science, and the School of Global Studies. Throughout the programme, you will explore the historical development of the international system, critically examining the interrelations among actors on the international arena through various theoretical lenses. Building on this foundation, the programme explores specific policy issues in the broad areas of security, and environmental, economic, social, and political development.

Programme Structure

  • The first semester explores the historical development of the international system, with focus on the relations among international organisations and between international organisations and various state and non-state actors.
  • The second and third semesters offer opportunities for pursuing your individual areas of interest through elective courses, an optional internship, or studies abroad. A research methods course in the third semester equips you with advanced knowledge of social science research methods that will assist in your thesis work.
  • The fourth semester offers an opportunity to apply and further develop your methodological skills and area expertise from previous semesters in your final master’s thesis.
