Asia and Europe: Global Governance as a Challenge to Co-operation

William Wallace and Young Soogil, eds.

The end of the Cold War and the terrorist attacks of 9/11 have brought about profound changes in international politics. The world is in desperate need of a new system of global governance, a structure for consultation and cooperation among states to maintain global order, to contain disorder, to promote global prosperity through shared management of an open world economy, and to address the difficult issues of global equity, rights, and justice. This publication of the Council for Asia-Europe Cooperation (CAEC), for which JCIE serves as the Asian secretariat, attempts to redefine the roles of Asia and Europe in a changed world, and to analyze the ways in which cooperation could enhance global governance.
