Abstract

Can better governance, in itself, be a subject for global goal setting? This question stands at the center of this chapter, which focuses on the inclusion of “governance goals” in global goal-setting mechanisms, especially the Sustainable Development Goals agreed upon by the UN General Assembly in September 2015 as part of its 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development (UNGA 2015). While our discussion is inspired by the negotiations around governance goals and targets within the context of Sustainable Development Goals, we seek to build a broader analytic approach that goes beyond the integration of governance in this specific context.
