Abstract and Keywords

This article evaluates the utility of the concept of governmentality in shedding light on mechanisms of global governance as practices of regulation, provides examples of how governmentality has been used to give new insight into global governance, and discusses the connection between the bounded state and the global state. It explores how one can understand the global governance operating on the individual and argues that governmentality is attached to the mechanisms of a form of global governance which is predicated upon the assumptions of the neoliberal economic system.

Keywords: governmentality, global governance, practices of regulation, bounded state, neoliberal economic system
