Governance Sector Days

Climate change, the rise of mega cities, the digital transformation, the increase of worldwide inequality, growing migration due to an increasing number of violent conflicts, under-regulated financial flows – no state can devise effective solutions to these and other global challenges on its own. In fact, the need for new forms of cooperation is stronger today than ever before since local approaches must be incorporated in multilateral agreements, and global challenges cannot be effectively met by approaches focusing solely on the national level.

This fact brings us to the heart of the debate on the post-2015 development agenda which is to bring together development goals and sustainability goals in one global agenda, for which industrialised, emerging and developing nations will be jointly responsible.

The Governance Sector Days are to help improve our understanding of the global agendas and the development of global partnerships in terms of good governance and human rights, as well as to discuss the range of services we offer partner countries and bring these services into line with the demands of sustainable development for the global common good.

The AFI Approach: A New Model for International Cooperation
by Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH
Since its official launch at the first Global Policy Forum in Nairobi, Kenya in 2009, AFI has reached impressive milestones, but never rested on ist laurels. With its South-South peer learning approach and truly member-driven governance, AFI has attracted financial inclusion policymakers from around the globe since the very beginning, and grown quickly both in terms of members and services. The purpose of this paper is to unpack the essentials of the AFI approach and identify the keys to its success.

Governance of global transformation: a contribution to the discussion
Governance globaler Transformation: Ein Beitrag zur Diskussion

by Dr. Albrecht Stockmayer
The paper analyses how the framework of global governance and thus the settings of our advisory services have evolved in the light of global challenges. It brings together the debate on transformation (which was our main focus at the last Sector Days in 2013) with the opportunities and challenges we face within the setting of global governance. It also raises some crucial points on how our work will be shaped by the impacts of global developments in the future.

Governing the World without World Government: States, Societies and Institutions interact in many ways
by Michael Zürn
Global issues call for globally coordinated governance. A diverse and still only partial system of global governance is developing by interaction between national governments, international institutions, and non-state actors. Efficient global governance can reach deep into national societies. Given the lack of coordination, legitimacy, and equity in global governance, resistance is growing; international politics is being politicized.

Globalization and global politics
by Anthony McGrew
Globalization is a long-term historical process that denotes the growing intensity of worldwide interconnectedness: in short, a ‘shrinking world’. It is, however, a highly uneven process such that far from creating a more cooperative world it is also a significant source of global friction, instability, enmity, and conflict. Whilst it has important consequences for the power and autonomy of national governments, it by no means prefigures the demise of the nation-state or of geopolitics. Rather, globalization is associated with significant transformations in world politics, the most significant of which are the focus of this chapter. In particular a conceptual shift in our thinking is required to grasp fully the nature of these transformations.
