A Primer on Global Economic Sharing
¤ Share The World’s Ressources (STWR) ¤ 19 December 2014
Humanity is in the midst of a global emergency. The policies that drive the world economy have magnified the gap between rich and poor, led to conflict over the planet’s natural resources, and resulted in an ecological crisis that threatens life on earth. We urgently need to move beyond the restrictive political and economic ideologies of the past and embrace solutions that meet the common needs of people in all nations - which will be impossible to achieve without some degree of economic (...) read more

¤ European Report on Development (ERD) ¤ 5 June 2013
Based on an assessment of the MDG experience and on an analysis of the changing international context and likely trends for the next 20-30 years, the ERD 2013 attempts to identify key potential drivers of a global partnership for development post-2015. Three such drivers are highlighted: Money: Development Finance. A fundamental question for an ambitious post-2015 agenda is how to both raise additional development finance and make it more effective. The Report points to the importance of (...) read more


Environmental Governance and Managing the Earth

Rio+20: Failed Diplomacy, Feeble Democracy
¤ Pierre Calame ¤ 18 July 2012
The Rio de Janeiro experience has left us with a planet-sized headache. It brought together tens of thousands of people and almost a hundred heads of state to adopt a 50-page, take-it-or-leave-it declaration that repeats commitments made long ago and not kept, taking care to include all the buzz words of a liturgy now emptied of all meaning: the role of women and civil society, rights, the importance of democracy and popular participation, not to mention indigenous people, some of whom were (...) read more


Regulating the Public and the Private Economy

Regulating Transnational Companies: 46 Proposals
¤ William Bourdon, Yann Queinnec ¤ 20 December 2011
This Proposal Paper hopes to provide an explanation of the constraints and a series of proposals for a system for the regulation of transnational companies (TNCs). This requires us to first set out the fundamental obstacles that make the question of regulating the activities of TNCs so problematic. The crisis in the financial system that has hit economies worldwide has demonstrated the importance of regulating for-profit private and public transnational actors. The difficulties states have (...) read more

The world is in the most crucial period of transition in the 21st century, in which the future of human civilization will depend on our choice today. China has become the second largest economy in the world and, in terms of both its size and achievements, has increasingly deep impact on global socio-economic development and pattern. In the meantime, the rising China has been facing more and more international conflicts and development issues. In the context of changing global circumstances, (...) read more


Legal Principles of a New World Governance

The Emergence of Global Administrative Law
¤ Benedict Kingsbury, Nico Krisch, Richard B. Stewart ¤ 20 October 2010
Emerging patterns of global governance are being shaped by a little-noticed but important and growing body of global administrative law. In this article we begin the task of identifying some patterns of commonality and connection sufficiently deep and farreaching as to constitute an embryonic field of global administrative law. We point to some factors encouraging the development of common approaches, and to mechanisms of learning, borrowing, and cross-referencing, that are contributing to (...) read more


Agriculture, and Food Security and Sovereingty

Governance of the World Banana Trade
¤ Iain Farquhar ¤ 16 October 2009
With liberalisation of the global banana market and more intense price competition, it has become increasingly difficult for small producers to survive, while large intensive operations which can keep costs down by paying particularly poor wages and disregarding environmental controls tend to be favoured. Consequently, if the aim of governance should be to manage the planet sustainably, then current patterns of governance are clearly failing. This paper will concentrate on those producers, (...) read more
