Meeting the Challenge: Global Governance in a Plural World

Risultato della ricerca: Contributo in libroPrefazione / postfazione / breve introduzione


The idea of a single world-scale international system is largely obsolete and far from realistic in meeting the needs of the present age. The emergence of heterogeneous but overlapping international ‘societies’ and actors makes it necessary to address global governance issues in a perspective of plurality. This book outlines (potential) conflict and cooperation in global governance by exploring new research paths, at the crossroads of ASERI different disciplinary fields. Some leading questions underpin this book. How to frame an inclusive global governance design, suited to deal with the plurality of rules and expectations in the current international system? Can a unipolar power system 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? How can states, international organisations, NGOs, economic stakeholders, and communities of any kind contribute to framing a new international system? What is the role of democracy, freedom, legitimacy, security in providing the ‘common good’ of a new governance design? I part: Power, Good Governance, Legitimacy; II part: Europe: a ‘Plural’ Union; III part: An Hegemonic Power in a Plural World; IV part: Actors and Strategies for Common Goods
