3 16/02/2014 Governance and citizenship Part 1 Governance Global/regional governance is the complex of formal and informal institutions, mechanisms, relationships, and processes between and among states, markets, citizens and organizations, both inter- and non- governmental, through which collective interests on the global/regional plane are articulated, rights and obligations are established, and differences are mediated.
