Politics and Governance.
In a time of great change, accelerating globalization and increasing uncertainty, all countries, whether developed or developing, are searching for a new form of governance that is better adapted to the times so as to gain an advantage in economic competitiveness and create substantial and sustainable social growth. As governance theory is becoming the dominant political theory in response to the change, the values backing the discourse and texts consistent with them have helped revise the theory of government in mainstream politics and were agreed upon by global politicians, scholars, officials and entrepreneurs. The English word governance derives from Latin and ancient Greek and originally meant control, guidance and manipulation. Its meaning had long overlapped with the word government and was mainly used to refer to administrative and political activities related to national public affairs. However, in the s, it was given a new meaning by western political scientists and economists.
Global governance or world governance is a movement towards political cooperation among transnational actors, aimed at negotiating responses to problems that affect more than one state or region. Global governance involves multiple states, as well as international organizations , with one state having more of a lead role than the rest. The modern question of world governance exists in the context of globalization and globalizing regimes of power: politically, economically and culturally. In response to the acceleration of worldwide interdependence , both between human societies and between humankind and the biosphere , the term "global governance" may name the process of designating laws, rules or regulations intended for a global scale. Global governance is not a singular system. There is no " world government ", but the many different regimes of global governance do have commonalities:. While the contemporary system of global political relations is not integrated, the relation between the various regimes of global governance is not insignificant, and the system does have a common dominant organizational form.
The COVID pandemic has shown where the cracks lie in the inter-related levels of global, national and local governance. Good governance is crucial in responding to a crisis. For example, in when the Great Plague swept England, Londoners were asked by authorities to kill cats and dogs, and fill the rooms of the ill with tobacco smoke. These moves were famously counter-productive, not only choking the afflicted, but crucially allowing free-from-harm rats to multiply and thereby spread the plague bacteria via the fleas that lived on them. This plague only stopped when most of London fortuitously burnt down the following year. The COVID pandemic has shown the need for a coordinated global response, but underscored that the nation-state remains the best and perhaps only entity with the capacity to address this challenge.

Politics is all around us. There is no escaping politics, but we can discover more effective ways to use it by studying Political Science. Political Science is a broad discipline encompassing American politics, comparative politics, international relations, political philosophy, and law. It explores how individuals exercise power in group settings and the institutions, rules, and processes that are put in place to promote cooperation. Because of its broad character, Political Science overlaps with other disciplines including economics, sociology, psychology, anthropology, communications, and criminal justice. A typical Political Science major will learn about democracy and other forms of government, styles of leadership, the ideas of Plato, Machiavelli, Hobbes, and Locke, the influence of non-governmental organizations in world politics, the formation of public opinion, the role of new social media in politics, and Constitutional law.

The new coronavirus pandemic is not only wreaking destruction on public health and the global economy but disrupting democracy and governance worldwide. It has hit at a time when democracy was already under threat in many places, and it risks exacerbating democratic backsliding and authoritarian consolidation. Already, some governments have used the pandemic to expand executive power and restrict individual rights. Yet such actions are just the tip of the iceberg. The coronavirus will likely transform other pillars of democratic governance—such as electoral processes, civilian control of militaries, and civic mobilization—and potentially reset the terms of the global debate on the merits of authoritarianism versus democracy.
Он не предложил вам больницы поприличнее. - На этой его чертовой тарантайке. Нет уж, увольте.
Ты сошла с ума! - крикнул в ответ Хейл. - Я вовсе не Северная Дакота! - И он отчаянно забился на полу. - Не лги, - рассердилась Сьюзан. - Почему же вся переписка Северной Дакоты оказалась в твоем компьютере. - Я ведь тебе уже говорил! - взмолился Хейл, не обращая внимания на вой сирены.
Скажи, Танкадо действительно умер от сердечного приступа или же его ликвидировал кто-то из ваших людей. - Ты совсем ослепла. Как ты не понимаешь, что я ко всему этому непричастен.
Халохот внимательно оглядывал согнутые спины. Он приготовился стрелять метров с пятидесяти и продвигался. El cuerpo de Jesus, el pan del cielo. Молодой священник, причащавший Беккера, смотрел на него с неодобрением. Ему было понятно нетерпение иностранца, но все-таки зачем рваться без очереди. Беккер наклонил голову и тщательно разжевывал облатку. Он почувствовал, что сзади что-то произошло, возникло какое-то замешательство, и подумал о человеке, у которого купил пиджак.
