I am currently working on a manuscript on global governance. It contends that there has arisen a global society for the first time in the social evolution of the human species. This society, like all preceding societies, have had to confront three imperatives of all human societies: order, welfare, and legitimacy (OWL). The volume argues that the dominant solutions advanced by the world's populations for OWL imperatives are fundamentally flawed and require fundamental reform if the global society is to survive and thrive. These include the nation-state and nation-system for order, global markets for welfare, and popularly based national systems for legitimacy.
