For the last few decades, the world has fast moved from internationalism to a stage of globalism. It is reflected in the increased interdependence between states on a worldwide scale; free mobility of people, goods, services and capital across borders; fast transfer of technology and online communication, and in structures that serve immediate transmission of information and knowledge. beside these positive trends the phenomenon of globalisation also exacerbated considerable threats to human security in many ways. Global inequalities in income and living standards have reached grotesque proportions. Apartheid and fundamentalism has become crucial global problems. Transnational terrorism and organized crime become much more prevalent. Burning environ-mental problems are raising serious threats to sustainable development. These factors, together with many others, imply the need and possible emergence of a stronger system of global governance. This book focuses on the essential underlying conditions and the con-create steps needed to establish a system of global governance. It analyses the issues of global economic interdependence, worldwide poverty and inequality, transnationalisation of terrorism and organized crime, crisis of natural environment and also the spiritual dimension of greater global interdependence. The core values and principles that would need to underpin global governance are also discussed in this book. This work will be highly informative and useful to decision makers, academicians, researchers, students, teachers and all who believe in global common cause.
