Product Description

Since 2007 the world has lurched from one crisis to the next. The rise of new powers, the collapse of our global financial system, the proliferation of nuclear weapons and crisis in the Eurozone have led to a build up of risks that is likely to provoke a more general crisis in our system of global governance if it cannot be made fairer, more effective and accountable. In this book, nine leading scholars explore the fault lines and mounting challenges that are putting pressure on existing institutions, the ways in which we are currently attempting to manage them – or failing to – and the prospects for global governance in the 21st century. In doing so, the contributors offer a fresh look at one of the most important issues confronting the world today and they suggest strategies for adapting current institutions to better manage our mutual interdependence in the future. Contributors include Ha-Joon Chang, Benjamin Cohen, Michael Cox, David Held, George Magnus, Robert Skidelsky, Robert Wade, Martin Wolf and Kevin Young.

Product Reviews


"Among the many troubling things made clear by the current protracted crisis, a crucial one is that progress in global governance has been fragile and is very much at risk. In this book, Held and Roger have brought together distinguished contributors to explore the ways this is so, why, and what the implications are. The results are sobering but also helpful and consistently insightful."Craig Calhoun, director of the London School of Economics and Political Science
