There is a strong and urgent need to develop human capital for tackling global issues such as poverty, pollution, human rights, and democracy, which can only be solved through a global spectrum. The doctoral course of the Graduate School of Global Governance has been established to accommodate these needs. The school will enhance the students' knowledge and ability so that they can become independent scholars who are capable of doing in-depth analysis and finding actual solutions to global issues whilst incorporating cultural differences. The students would become policy makers and highly professional practitioners, working for international or national entities. The curriculum consists of "Public Policy", "International Development Policy", and "Community Management". By completing the doctoral program, the students will have cultivated skills to observe public policy goals to find solutions to: environmental issues, the alleviation of world poverty and disparity, securing human rights, implementation of democratic states, local revitalization and crisis management.
