  A relatively new term that has two distinct meanings:

According to McGrew geo-governance is synonymous with global governance: \'global governance (or geo-governance) is a term which refers to those formal and informal mechanisms for managing, regulating and controlling international activity and international systems of interaction (e.g. the trade system)\' (McGrew, 1997, p. 15; cf. regime theory).

Drawing on the Regulation school and theories of governance, Sum defines geo-governance as \'the governance of social relations qua temporal-spatial practices and relations\' (Sum, 1997, p. 161). In this formulation, geo-governance refers to the adoption of governance strategies that are directly oriented towards the spatial and temporal organization of social and economic life. Using the example of cross-border regional networks in East Asia, Sum shows how the time-space embedded-ness of such networks is centrally implicated in their governance processes (cf. transnationalism). (JP)
