Global Governance and the United Nations System

Synopsis

Globalisation, the end of the Cold War and the technological revolution has led to fundamental changes in the system of international governance, and this publication offers a wide-ranging analysis of the changing world order at the beginning of the 21st century. Issues discussed include: the progression from an international to a global system of governance and the challenges for collective decision-making; how social justice can be attained by this transition; and the role of states, intergovernmental organisations, the United Nations system and non-government actors in business and civil society sectors.
