Introduction

Challenging Global Governance
  • Philipp S. Müller

Abstract

Just as every book on the international realm from 1991 to 2000 has referred to the end of the Cold War as a historical starting point, books in the twenty-first century refer to globalization, that is, the transformative changes in the international system (Fuchs and Kratochwil 2002). Globalization has thus created a need to find a new framework or vocabulary to describe and act in the international world. This theoretical problem is linked to the following practical and political problem: How can we legitimize political action in a post-nation-state world? Global governance addresses these twin questions. In 2003 there was an explosion of articles and books on global governance (Arts; Börzel and Risse; Held and Koenig-Archibugi; Holzinger et al.; Kahler and Lake; Messner and Nuscheler; Steffek; Weiss, etc.). As latecomers we will join this list. Why should this particular addition be interesting?
