Inge Kaul teaches global governance and global-issue economics at the Hertie School of Governance, Berlin, with a special focus on how the multilateral system, notably the UN system has responded to the growing importance of global challenges like mitigating global climate change, communicable disease control, preventing and managing financial crises, addressing international terrorism and promoting peace and security.
The courses explore change in the structure and functioning of intergovernmental organizations, the relation between intergovernmental organizations and nonstate actors (business and civil society) contributing to the provision of global public goods; and new policy approaches to and instruments of international cooperation financing. Students also have an opportunity to examine and develop reform proposals for a new multilateralism.
The courses have been designed for Master of Public Policy students. They are comprised of three modules, addressing the following topics:
1 The Changing World(s) of Multilateralism: New Challenges, New Actors, New Cooperation Rationales
2 Deciding and Financing Global Policy Priorities: An Analysis of Multilateral Agencies
3 The New Tools of International Cooperation Finance
