The Role of Southern Actors in Global Governance: The Fight against HIV/AIDS
This paper analyses the role of actors from developing countries in global processes of pol-icy making and governance. To systematically examine the channels of influence of South-ern actors and the interactions in global governance it develops the concept of interfaces. It differentiates between organisational, discoursive, legal and resource-transfer interfaces in global governance. This approach is exemplified in the analysis of a specific field of global governance, the global fight against HIV/AIDS. The paper examines the role of Southern governments and non-state actors in the central organisations of global health, their influ-ence in debates and discourses on strategies to fight HIV/AIDS, and the financing mecha-nisms that were introduced to fight HIV/AIDS in the developing world. It shows that al-beit actors from Northern countries dominate global governance in general, in particular areas the current institutional setting of global governance provides significant opportuni-ties for rather weak actors such as civil society organisations and governments from the South to influence strategies and policies.
