Book Description

By analyzing the roles and problems faced by international regimes as major players in global health governance, this book looks into the root causes of the often insufficient supply of global public goods for health and deficiencies in current global health governance.

Combining several different methods of analysis and methodologies, this book sketches out the landscape of international public health governance involving a range of international actors. These include the World Health Organization, the World Trade Organization, the Biological Weapons Convention and International Human Rights Regimes. Through a novel theoretical framework that synthesizes the theory of “securitization”, public goods and international regimes, the author then focuses on factors that have resulted in observed deficiencies in global health governance. Based on these examinations, the book also tries to explore feasible approaches for institutional refinement and innovations in the hope of greater effectiveness in global health governance.

The book will appeal to academics and policy makers interested in global health, international relations and international law.
