What are the processes by which international agendas are declared universal, and are they democratic? What happens when national governments disagree with world agendas and how are disputes arbitrated? As globalization progresses, should national governments expect to cede some aspect of sovereignty?
Please join us to discuss these and other important questions as the Federalist Society and AEI inaugurate a joint project, Global Governance Watch (GGW). A web-based resource that addresses issues of transparency and accountability at the United Nations, in NGOs, and related international organizations, and the threats that such organizations pose to national sovereignty, the GGW project focuses on four strategic areas: 1) national security -- exploring the ways in which international organizations have become increasingly involved in national defense policy, 2) development -- monitoring the efficacy of international organizations that conduct development work, 3) global regulation -- assessing the impact of international efforts to regulate such areas as health policy, intellectual property rights, and corporate social responsibility, and 4) human security -- assessing human rights actors and related global efforts to promote a secure world free from "want" and "fear."
