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.
