This chapter examines the concept of global governance and assesses the optimism associated with governance as a means of creating a genuine global community. The concept of global governance arose from belief that in recent decades sovereign states have lost their monopoly of authority in global politics owing to globalization which has rendered national borders porous, reduced the traditionally crucial role of territory in international relations, and diminished the barriers between domestic and foreign affairs and between the public and private policy arenas. A host of actors that constitute global civil society have acquired authority and a role in governance. Optimism, however, is no substitute for serious theorizing, and, global governance remains fragile at best and subject to the interests of the great powers. At best, governance remains incomplete. Notwithstanding growing human interdependence and the emergence of collective challenges to survival, governance remains virtually unenforceable in certain realm policy realms.

Keywords:   collective threat, globalization, global governance, international organization, non-state actors, state-centric
