Global Covenant: The Social Democratic Alternative to the Washington Consensus

Global Covenant: The Social Democratic Alternative to the Washington Consensus Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this pathbreaking book, one of the world’s leading analysts of globalization and global governance confronts the failures of international politics in the aftermath of 9/11 and the war against Iraq. He argues that there were and are alternatives to the way the western coalitions responded to the profound challenges of mass terrorism and political violence - alternatives which can better address the roots of these challenges and deliver political and social justice.

In order to grasp this alternative, the changing structure of the global order has to be understood. To this end, the book is divided into three sections: economics, politics and law. In each section contemporary trends are analyzed, problems confronted, and a series of detailed policies set out. The aim of the book is to focus on feasible and effective policy choices which could lead to a progressive transformation of global affairs. Against the ideologues who are wholly in favour or hostile to globalization, this book shows how globalization can be better regulated to deliver human development, equitable economic change, democracy and justice.

This book is a major contribution to the current debates surrounding global order. It will be essential reading for those - students, political scientists, policy-makers and the general reader - who ask questions about globalization and global governance. It is an optimistic text that holds that sustainable economic change, democracy and justice are still within our reach.
