The Limits of Global Governance
Psychology Press, 2005 - 167 pages
Are we creating an ungovernable world? Can we be confident that our existing modes of global governance are sufficient, or sufficiently adaptable, to meet the challenges of rapid and pervasive globalization? Are there sound reasons for supposing that humanity's actions and creations will stay within the bounds of our processes of deliberation and regulation? "The Limits of Global Governance "addresses these questions and provides a provocative examination of the cognitive, practical and political limits on our ability to exercise systems of regulation and control on the same scale as the globalizing forces already shaping the human condition. Issues that are addressed include: * An examination of the many meanings of 'global governance' * A contextualized view of global governance within the complex interaction of human and natural systems * An analysis of global governance at a fundamental and conceptual level * A case study of disseminative systems and global governance This book is essential reading for those with research interests in Global Politics, International Relations and Globalization.
