Abstract

Efforts to address global governance deficits approach the problem at a strategic or tactical level. Strategic efforts would reshape the politics or institutions of global order; tactical efforts focus on the processes of governance, either seeking to utilize informal networks for improved outcomes, or to formalize the processes themselves for greater accountability. This paper considers the last approach and the claims that “global administrative law” could remedy at least some accountability deficits at the global level. Recent challenges to the UN Security Council in the area of targeted financial sanctions are discussed, before sketching out what global administrative law might offer the governance challenges posed in the areas of energy, public health, and finance.

Keywords: global governance, global administrative law, UN Security Council, targeted financial sanctions
