This chapter deals with the role of regions in global governance. First, governance is conceptualized in light of the transformation of the Westphalian approach (government) and the increased importance of governance, especially at the global and regional level. From this perspective, the key question then is how to understand and conceptualize the relationship between different modes of governance (subnational, national, regional and global) that are nested within a multilayered global governance structure. The remainder of the chapter illustrates the rising strength of the regional dimension of global governance in three rather different policy fields: security, trade and health.
