Anti-Politics, Depoliticization, and Governance

In the diverse ecosystem of global governance, this chapter focuses upon networks and partnerships as depoliticizing tactics of global governance. Global and regional public–private partnerships alongside transnational knowledge networks of experts, scientists, and other professionals have emerged from dissatisfaction with the limited policy capacities of traditional institutions—states, intergovernmental organizations, and multilateral agreements—to cope with global policy problems. As new governance institutions, these networks and partnerships are not only tools of depoliticization that take the management of global problems to distant and technocratic administrative realms. Viewed as a type of ‘experimentalist governance’, these networks also represent venues of creativity and innovation on the global governance landscape.
