By Anne-Marie Slaughter

Global governance is here--but now not the place most folk imagine. This e-book provides the far-reaching argument that not just may still we've got a brand new global order yet that we already do. Anne-Marie Slaughter asks us to fully reconsider how we view the political international. it isn't a set of kingdom states that converse via presidents, leading ministers, overseas ministers, and the United international locations. neither is it a clique of NGOs. it's governance via a fancy worldwide net of "government networks."

Slaughter presents the main compelling and authoritative description to this point of an international during which executive officials--police investigators, monetary regulators, even judges and legislators--exchange info and coordinate job throughout nationwide borders to take on crime, terrorism, and the regimen day-by-day grind of overseas interactions. nationwide and overseas judges and regulators may also paintings heavily jointly to implement overseas agreements extra successfully than ever ahead of. those networks, that may diversity from a gaggle of constitutional judges changing evaluations throughout borders to extra validated businesses akin to the G8 or the foreign organization of coverage Supervisors, make issues happen--and they often make good stuff ensue. yet they're underappreciated and, worse, underused to deal with the demanding situations dealing with the area today.

The smooth political international, then, contains states whose part components are speedy turning into as vital as their important management. Slaughter not just describes those networks but in addition units forth a blueprint for a way they could larger the area. regardless of questions of democratic responsibility, this new international order isn't one within which a few "world executive" enforces international dictates. The governments we have already got at domestic are our greatest wish for tackling the issues we are facing in a foreign country, in a networked global order.
