On Global Order

Globalization has become a central part of the rhetoric of contemporary world politics and the subject of increasing volumes of academic analysis. It is the most common term to capture the sense of radical and increasing change in the character of global politics. It resists any single or simple definition, but the many strands within the globalization debate are fundamental to the analysis of the changing character of international society and the emergence of new ideas about global governance. This chapter addresses four questions: what is globalization? What has been the impact of globalization on the state? What is the relationship between globalization and inequality and in what ways has this influenced the question of legitimacy? How far has globalization reinforced the element of consensus in international society and, in particular, consensus behind a liberal solidarist conception of international society?

Keywords:   globalization, state, inequality, legitimacy, international society, liberal solidarist
