Overview

The emergence of global governance challenges conventional interpretations of world politics regarding conflicts of interests between sovereign states under conditions of anarchy. At the same time, the new phenomena of anti-globalization demonstrations, transnational social movements, and an emergent global civil society point to important developments in international relations. Leading scholars reflect on the usefulness of thinking about these processes as a dichotomy between the politics of governance and the politics of resistance, and consider its application to international relations.
