Globalization and Summit Reform
An Experiment in International Governance
The book traces the origins and findings of the project, which generated a broad array of cutting-edge research and over 20 substantive, action-oriented workshops involving hundreds of experts and practitioners around the world. The workshop series examined in detail the operational possibilities for a Leaders Group addressing a range of issues, including infectious disease control, climate change/global warming, energy security, nuclear proliferation, management of international financial crises, and the provision of safe drinking water and sanitation, to name just a few. In the context of a rapidly globalizing world, the book addresses the classical problems of international governance How do we prevent war? How do we feed the hungry? How do we house the homeless? How do we cure the sick and safeguard the healthy from threats such as pandemics and global warming?
Featuring a Foreword by Dr Gordon Smith, an Afterword by the Right Honourable Paul Martin, former Prime Minister of Canada, and a glossary of terms, Globalization and Summit Reform provides a unique, insiders perspective on the process of international governance and its future prospects.
