governance networks shaping the processes of large scale project implementation and evaluate their work vis-à-vis project outcomes. Finally, the workshop explores the ways to manage complex governance networks for better project results. The workshop uses a comparative approach based on case studies of large scale project implementation in three countries. The studies will start with the analysis of large scale development projects (3000 – 6000 residential units in size) that will train students to identify the actors, processes ; potential challenges and opportunities project implementation governance. The skills acquired on these ‘smaller' projects will then be used to examine the governance of implementation of two mega projects. Required reading : Flyvbjerg B.

Course Description : The course reviews the major paradigms of comparative politics, public policy and international relations relevant to understand the changing forms of government and leadership in the contemporary world. Governing public as well as private organizations increasingly takes the form of international governance, whereby decision-making unfolds on a multilevel scale and takes a multi-temporal dimension. International Governance is situated at the crossroads between two major areas of social sciences : public policy primarily thought as the conduct of public affairs by national governments, and international relations, for long mainly interpreted as the political interactions among states in the international arena. Contemporary realities however increasingly question this traditional dichotomy between the domestic and external dimensions of government, as well as between power politics and policy management. They also clearly pressure the state, ﬁrms and international institutions to adjust or transform their modus operandi. The course reviews the major concepts and controversies needed to analyze political conﬁgurations with a wide range of backgrounds, and to map the major processes of change shaping public policy. It identiﬁes the dimensions of globalization relevant for public policy analysis and decisionmaking, and offers a plurality of perspectives on the context of contemporary government and leadership. It questions the dynamics of political regimes in rich, emerging and poor countries, and how they impact the conditions for cooperation in international governance. Required reading : Knill, C. & Tos
