Foucault's thoughts on governmentality have made a significant impact on the studies of power and governance in modern societies. However, most studies of governmentality confine themselves to the exploration of power within nation-states. Global Governmentality extends Foucault's political thought towards international studies, exploring the governance of the global, the international, the regional and many other extra-domestic spaces.
Combining historical and contemporary outlooks, this book offers innovative interdisciplinary explorations of such issues as international peacekeeping, refugees, political rationalities of security and neoliberalism, the spatiality of globalization, the genealogy of development, and the ethical governance of corporate activity.
At a time when many of the geopolitical and economic certainties which framed international affairs are in flux, Global Governmentality is suggestive of new territories and lines for international analysis. It will be of interest to students and researchers of both governmentality and international studies.

Industry Reviews

"Elaborating on political engagements with Foucault, Global Governmentality is an important contribution to, and intervention in, international studies. ...This book is essential to political theorists and researchers interested in questions of global governance and will be of wider interest to interdisciplinary scholars working with governmentality. Problematizing easy disciplinary divisions, this volume offers political, sociological, geopolitical, economic, and criminological approaches to themes important to International Relations theory and affairs."
