Humanity at Risk: The Need for Global Governance (Political Theory and Contemporary Philosophy)


Humanity at Risk: The Need for Global Governance (Political Theory and Contemporary Philosophy) Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Humanity at Risk compares diverse approaches to the theme of global threats using the tools of philosophy, critical theory, and political thought alongside more practical, socio-political observations. By defining the idea of "global risk" more specifically, Editors Innerarity and Solana, and their contributors, believe we can understand how these risks should be evaluated, predicted, and managed within the framework of democratic societies.The goal of this book is to highlight more precisely the necessity, in the face of new global risks, for new governance at a national, European, and global level.
