This course explores the complexities of international relations along two fronts: the emergence of global ethical questions, and the globalization of ethics itself. Global Governance: Katsuhiko Mori, International Christian University, Tokyo The aim of this course is to provide students with a comprehensive overview of theoretical and practical challenges involved in the complex subject of global governance.
