9780262240406: Global Governance: Drawing Insights from the Environmental Experience (Global Environmental Accord: Strategies for Sustainability and Institutional Innovation)

Much of our experience with innovative approaches to governance at the international level involves natural resources and the environment. Whereas the Cold War bred an intense concern with the preservation of existing institutions, the emerging environmental agenda has prompted an awareness of the need for new arrangements to achieve sustainable human/environment relations. Especially notable is the growth of specific regimes to deal with matters such as endangered plants and animals, migratory species, airborne pollutants, marine pollution, hazardous wastes, ozone depletion, and climate change. Nonstate actors have made particularly striking advances in the creation and maintenance of these environmental regimes.The contributors to this volume draw upon the experiences of environmental regimes to examine the problems of international governance in the absence of a world government. In the process, they address four central questions: Has regime analysis produced a distinctive conception of governance that can be applied to the solution of collective-action problems at the international level? Can we identify the conditions necessary for international "governance without government" to succeed? Does the emergence of regimes in specific issue areas have broader consequences for the future of international society? Can we generalize from experience with environmental issues to a broader range of international governance problems?Contributors : Thomas Bernauer, Lee Botts, Helmut Breitmeier, Paul Muldoon, M. J. Peterson, David Reed, Olav Schram Stokke, Marcia Valiante, Konrad von Moltke, Paul Wapner, Oran R. Young.

Review:

" Global Governance is must reading for anyone concerned withthe workings of the mysterious spiderweb of institutions by which theinternational system tries to manage the rampaging forces of globalenvironmental change. Oran Young has gathered a collection of eightcarefully researched and cogently presented case studies that are thelatest word on the subject." Abram Chayes , Felix Frankfurter Professor of Law Emeritus, Harvard Law School



"This book makes a strong case that global governance matters. The maincontribution of the book is to correct the state-centrism of existingliterature on international regimes and to suggest not only that globalcivil society matters for global governance as well, but to begintheorizing about how effective governance in fact emerges from theinterrelations of international regimes and civil society." Barbara Connolly , Professor of Political Science, Tufts University
