The book offers a vision for just security in global governance-to ensure that neither justice nor security imperatives are neglected as the world grapples with such critical issues as growing mass violence in fragile states, the threat of runaway climate change, and fears of devastating cross-border economic shocks and cyber-attacks. It further presents an array of policy-oriented recommendations to enable global governance networks and institutions to better meet 21st century threats and challenges, and to better exploit its emerging opportunities. The book contributes to the scholarly debate on global governance, its rules, and institutions at large, as well as on some of the most salient global challenges today, and offers new insights for modernizing our system of global governance and responding to its shortcomings.
