Global Social Governance in the Media

Global Social Governance in the Media

(p.195) Chapter 10 Global Social Governance in the Media
Actors and Agency in Global Social Governance

Frank Nullmeier

Oxford University Press

Global social governance is not only determined by international institutions, national governments, transnational expert groups, and non-governmental organizations. Worldwide social inequalities and policies against poverty, injustice, and economic domination are also politicized in the public sphere. Thus, the media and, accordingly, journalists, bloggers, publicists, publishers, and broadcasting and media companies are also important actors in the field of global social policy. This chapter discusses the opportunities that a rudimentarily developed and largely event-based global public sphere provides for global social policies. The second part of this chapter studies the role of national public spheres in greater detail. How do the media in different countries report on political issues and international organizations (e.g. the International Labour Organization) in the field of global social policy? What is the public resonance?

Keywords:   media, public sphere, public resonance, politicization, ILO
