What is a 'global polity' and can it be squared with the continued strength of nation-states?

This book argues that our current understanding of globalization makes it impossible to grasp some crucial changes in world politics. Drawing innovatively on both Foucault and Waltz Constructing a Global Polity reframes the debate about global politics by redefining the term 'polity' as a new model of political structure. Unlike hierarchy and anarchy, polity draws attention to how new objects of governance such as the global economy or climate affect the structure of world politics.

Through this new lens the author examines the construction of a global polity in the controversy that followed the dramatic 'anti-globalization' protests at global elite gatherings. The findings challenge the standard typology of positions in the globalization debate and suggest that, even while states remain central, the logic of world politics may be shifting in more subtle ways.

About the Author:

Olaf Corry is Lecturer in International Relations at The Open University, UK. He has a PhD from the University of Copenhagen and has previously worked at Cambridge and as a policy-advisor. He has written about global politics, social movements, climate change and risk in journals such as Review of International Studies, Millennium, and Political Studies.

Review:

'In this highly innovative book, Olaf Corry provides a fresh take on the problem of world order. Venturing beyond statist and globalist accounts, Corry argues that the concept of polity will help us to make better sense of the structure of the global realm, as well as the constitution of governance objects within that realm. As such, this book represents a significant contribution to the study of order in world politics, and should be of interest to international relations theorists and sociologists alike.'
-Jens Bartelson, Lund University, Sweden
 
'A superb account that penetrates the confusion of today's geopolitics to find a global polity coalescing around global governance
objects.'
- Martin Albrow, University of Bonn, Germany

'A highly innovative work which adds greatly to our understanding of global politics.'
- Anthony Giddens, Member of the House of Lords

Book Description Palgrave Macmillan. Hardcover. Condition: New. 240 pages. Despite much evidence for globalization, an international system remains dominant in political discourse. This book suggests that the lack of an alternative political structure prevents the move beyond models of hierarchy and anarchy and thus, in this space, forges a new theory of a global polity. In juxtaposition to statist discourse, Corry defines the positive notion of a global polity exploring its logic, boundaries and ordering principle, considering it in relation to existing terms such as global governance and global society. The book deploys this radical new framework to look for evidence of a global polity in the debate sparked by the dramatic anti-globalization protests that dogged a succession of elite global summits. Global polity recognises the impact of globalization upon governance and politics whereby global objects are being rendered as governable and the fault-lines of world politics are being redrawn.
