Global Governance and the United Nations SystemeBook - 2001
Global Governance and the United Nations System offers a wide-ranging analysis of changing world order at the beginning of the twenty-first century. It examines the progression from international to global governance, focusing on the fundamental change of actors, agendas, collective decision making, and the role of the United Nations system. Globalization does not only mean a change of relationship between governments and market forces. It also has important implications for the identities and activities of transnational social actors. International governance, the authors argue, faces three different challenges: the technological revolution; globalization; and the end of the Cold War, leading to jurisdictional, operational, incentive, and participatory gaps in governance which international governance systems cannot adequately cope with. In attempting to respond to these new problems international governance systems have engaged in a multifaceted move toward global governance, reacting to these challenges, in part, by transforming themselves.
