On Global Order

Andrew Hurrell

Oxford University Press

This chapter considers the place of regions within our understanding of global international society. It focuses on the relationship between the one world and the many worlds — on the one side, the one world of globalizing capitalism, of global security dynamics, of a global political system that, for many, revolves around a single hegemonic power, of global institutions and global governance, and of the drive to develop and embed a global cosmopolitan ethic; and, on the other side, the extent to which regions and the regional level of practice and of analysis have become more firmly established as important elements of the architecture of global political order; and the extent to which we are witnessing an emerging multi-regional system of international relations.

Keywords:   regionalism, international order, international society, global governance, global institutions
