Crisis and Change. the Geopolitics of Global Governance

Risultato della ricerca: LibroOther report


The “Global Governance in a Plural World” research project originated from the observation that a single world-scale international system is now largely obsolete and far from realistic in meeting the needs of the 21st century. Seeing the consolidation of heterogeneous political, societal and economic actors, we were convinced of the need to address Global Governance (GG) issues in a plural perspective, acknowledging the emergence of a variety of different ‘regional societies’ ruled by different norms, principles and expectations. Facing this plural context of differentiated but overlapping societies, we tried exploring new research paths, at the crossroads of ASERI’s main fields of inquiry: economics, politics and institutions, in order to characterise the evolving mix of (potential) conflict and cooperation in the international system. The first volume, published in 2010, addresses the questions that led the design and the making of the project: How to frame a GG design that might be sensitive to and inclusive of the plurality of rules and expectations defining the current international system? Could a unipolar power system actually keep the balance in a multipolar, plural, and fragmented international society? Which features of the different international and regional societies constitute elements of tension or cooperation among them? How do states, international organisations, NGOs, economic stakeholders, and communities of all kinds contribute to framing the new international system? What is the role of democracy, freedom, legitimacy, security in providing the ‘common good’ of a new governance design?
