The purpose of this paper is to explore the concept of 'global governance' and how it applies to the management of international migration by using trafficking of human beings as a case study. Globalization has altered the scene of world politics. A traditional state-centric view of the world order has been overshadowed by the increasing importance of other actors, including the United Nations, Multi-National Corporations (MNCs) and non-governmental organizations (NGOs). Globalization has also altered the dynamics of rule making and their enforcement within the international system, in that not only States, but also these non-State actors exercise enormous influence. The concept of global governance acknowledges this as it aims to include all the pertinent actors involved. To illustrate this further, the author will use trafficking of human beings as a case study. Two key principles of global governance are participation and accountability. This paper will analyze how these principles are reflected and implemented in the regime dealing with the prevention and suppression of trafficking of human beings.
