Discuss the role of global governance in areas of conflict
Global governance involves the movement towards political cooperation among transnational actors, aimed at negotiating responses to problems that affect more than one state or region, meaning it is necessary in areas of conflict which are states of opposition between ideas and interests etc.
Global governance is necessary in maintaining peace in areas of conflict and because of this military response is vital in order to remove problems that cannot be solved via negotiation and also necessary when armed attacks are taking place for the safety and security of the people. An example of this is the UN creation of UNMISS (United Nations Mission in South Sudan) which was set up for humanitarian crisis. In August 2015 12,523 people were sent over, 11,350 were military and 1,073 were police and an example of this is Indian troops defending 2,200 when South Sudanese soldiers attacked a village. However the UN were often criticized for lack of protection with slow responses to violence and disjointed command, causing them to prioritize safety over peacekeeping. This therefore shows you that military intervention via global governance is necessary in order to most of all protect the people and secondly diffuse certain situations. This is necessary as many of these states which are intervened in do not have sufficient funding or security to ensure there people can feel safe, which is where groups such as the UN are required.
Another key factor that global governance assists with is general aid, they are necessary in order to maintain basic standards of living and are vital in assisting people with better education, shelter, hygiene, food and water and other key resources. This sector of global governance is often supported largely by NGOs as well as peacekeeping organisations like the UN. For example Oxfam have been very useful during the problems in Sudan, helping 860,000 with humanitarian assistance and specifically 540,000 with clean water, education and hygiene. On top of this they aimed to create more long term solutions to the food and water problem by giving them fishing equipment and also giving farming tools to try and get their own food and potentially create a living from the skills. Another example of this was the WHO that 1.63 million received lifesaving medical services and also helped increase the resilience and capacity of their health service, this was very useful in the long term as it allowed the long term development of the health service which means less ...
