I am applying to University College London for admission to the MSc in Global Governance and Ethics. It was during my undergraduate study, I got motivated to indulge myself in global studies. My inquisitiveness to understand the changing world in which we live, attracted me towards studying Global Governance and Ethics. In a time of revolution, hunger, economic turmoil and terrorism, how these issues are resolved or bilateral deals are signed, motivated me further to indulge in global studies. It will also provide me with core knowledge and crucial analytical skills to deal with global issues.My name is Kriti Thakur and I stay in the metropolitan city of New Delhi (India). I am pursuing final year of Bachelor of Arts, Political Science (Honours) from Lakshmibai College, University of Delhi. At present, there is no global state and thus, no global government. Instead, in the contemporary world there are 194 sovereign states that coexist in a globalising world order. Therefore, modern state system is mainly challenged by global forces, struggling to find ways to adapt to new challenges . On the other hand, nation–states are also expected to uphold security, equality, justice and welfare. Transnational rules are needed for the purposes of coordination, conflict prevention, dispute resolution, standard-setting, and so on.IR scholars are exactly what these modern states require the most, the ones who can impart true sense of clarity and rational thinking and contribute to the awareness of the general public. Having become political science graduate as well, I am eager to undertake studies in your program as it will equip me with professional knowledge as well as the pre-requisite analytical skills that are important to success.The MSc in Global Governance and Ethics program at University College London is my ideal choice for the postgraduate study.

It will also enrich me with systematic understanding of the international forces shaping our lives politically, socially and economically, while inspiring and giving me opportunity to develop innovative ideas.There is a whole range of areas in global affairs within which actors are at present seeking to construct adequate governance structures. For any nation to be a sovereign state requires recognition from the other states as a legitimate participant, is fundamental to being a participant. The whole practice is based on the mutual recognition that states give one another. The debate on global governance and ethics is one of the most important in international governance. The concept of global governance and its ability to succeed in developing country hinge a lot on ethics and ethical decisions on governance considering what they started from. Progress in the arrangement of global governance will be made only through a decent attempt to bring into coherence the ethics which underpin the overall power structure within which the various state and non-state actors are placed.Endowed with my experiences and strong motivation, I would like to pursue my higher education in an institute that is one of the best in social sciences so that it enhances my career aspirations vis-à-vis global challenges.
