No.645 Between Global Governance and State Sovereignty: A Case Study of HIV/AIDS Policy in South Africa

by MAKINO Kumiko

March 2017


Global governance has become an increasingly popular concept among international relations scholars for analyzing how non-state actors participate in the governance of various issues of global common interest. HIV/AIDS policy is one of the key fields in which the prominent features of global governance are found. This paper discusses how the global governance of HIV/AIDS intersects with state sovereignty issues by examining the case of South Africa, a country seriously affected by the disease and one of the principal loci of contestation over the direction of HIV/AIDS policy.
