Deliberation and Global Governance: Liberal, Cosmopolitan, and Critical Perspectives


Abstract

<jats:p>The paper develops a critical analysis of deliberative approaches to global governance. After first defining global governance and with a minimalist conception of deliberation in mind, the paper outlines three paradigmatic approaches: <jats:italic>liberal</jats:italic>, <jats:italic>cosmopolitan</jats:italic>, and <jats:italic>critical</jats:italic>. The possibilities and problems of each approach are examined and a common concern with the scope for “deliberative reflection” in global governance is addressed. It is argued that each approach, to varying degrees, foregrounds the currently underdetermined state of knowledge about global governance, its key institutions, agents, and practices. In doing so, the question “ <jats:italic>What is global governance?</jats:italic>” is retained as an important and reflective element of ongoing deliberative practices. It is suggested that this constitutes the distinctive and vital insight of deliberative approaches to global governance.</jats:p>
