CRN: 1735

Credits: 1

This course will analyze the emerging trend of private funding and partnership arrangements in addressing global challenges and explore their impact and influence across a range of areas from program development to decision-making and democratic governance. Global economic, social and ecological crises have intensified in recent years, yet the ability of states and multilateral organizations to tackle these crises appears to have diminished and there has been an increase in the role of the business sector and philanthropy in helping meet global challenges. While “innovative” in many ways, these partnerships also raise questions; is the public interest really served, does it lead to excessive corporate capture of decision making, does it erode democratic governance. The course will aim to equip students with the concepts and tools to research and assess the impact of partnerships and private funding and to develop policy frameworks for private financing of global public goods and services.
