Governing Globalization: Issues and Institutions

This policy brief is intended to outline suggestions and stimulate discussion at a time when the world community is thinking about, and is engaged in, a debate on global governance. The policy brief not only focuses on the reform of existing institutions, but also proposes new institutions that are needed. It articulates a powerful new worldview and vision that are critical for any efforts to develop legitimate and effective global governance rules for the first part of the twenty-first century.
