9780754646785: Global Cooperation: Challenges and Opportunities in the Twenty-First Century (Global Interdisciplinary Studies Series)

The twenty-first century global community is confronted with unprecedented challenges as well as unique opportunities. The degree to which it can establish and institutionalize norms and mechanisms designed to promote and sustain meaningful global cooperation will determine the future course of civilization. This volume brings together a broad range of scholars to highlight some of the areas of contemporary transnational cooperation and to examine the scope and levels at which cooperation can and does take place. The study examines the issue of weapons of mass destruction, explores the promises of biotechnology and space technology, and investigates the roles of global conventions and institutions as strategies for addressing the common threats facing the international system. In short, the volume raises important, timely issues regarding the challenges and opportunities confronting the global community which both policy makers and academicians will find informative and thought-provoking in their efforts to understand the nature and complexity of the twenty-first century global community.

'Felicia Krishna-Hensel is an academic of considerable intellectual skill and transnational reach. We have many reasons to be grateful for her expertise in Global Cooperation. This timely volume draws together a team of international scholars that analyze some of the major challenges of the twenty first century. Global Cooperation underscores the imperative to create a policy framework for transnational problems that are both global and local in their manifestation.' A.J.R. Groom, Professor Emeritus, University of Kent, UK and Executive Secretary, World International Studies Committee 'Krishna-Hensel has brought together another excellent collection on a very timely topic. The issue of global cooperation and the tensions it raises between North and South and across the Atlantic are discussed from interesting perspectives in a well chosen set of chapters. Anyone with an interest in the potential and challenges for international cooperation at a tense time in world politics will enjoy this book.'
