The Political Power of Global Corporations

John Mikler has long been concerned with the lack of clarity surrounding the role of international corporations in the political process. Mikler, an Associate Professor in the Department of Government and International Relations at the University of Sydney, argues that global corporations are political actors with complex identities and strategies, and that these corporations seek not only to drive or modify the agendas of states, but to govern in their own right. In this course, we will briefly consider Mikler’s career and writings, and then examine the structure and main arguments of Mikler’s book: The Political Power of Global Corporations.

This class will be delivered online via the online platform Zoom. Enrolling students need to ensure they have an email, a reliable internet connection, microphone/speakers and access to a tablet, smartphone or computer.
