The world is becoming more integrated and interdependent, heightening the need for new approaches to global governance. How can the international community collectively respond to pressing global problems? What kinds of institutions are needed, and what kinds of instruments will help them function? A distinguished group of international scholars wrestles here with what global governance is and is not_and with what it might be, given a clearer understanding of the challenges and opportunities posed by international financial flows, communications technologies, environmental threats, domestic disorders, peacekeeping and intervention, and sanctions and incentives. Taken together, this collection of original essays pays special attention to the prospect for strengthening an institutional world order by encouraging and enforcing compliance with international norms.
