This book diagnoses contemporary governments as obsolete and proposes changes in values, structures, staffing, public understanding and political culture to equip governance for the radically novel challenges of the twenty-first century. It also discusses the need for radical improvements in global government to cope with dangers such as mass killing terrorism up to the possible necessity for a ‘Global Leviathan’. This is the first Report dealing with governance commissioned and approved by the Club of Rome, testifying to the significance of this book

TABLE OF CONTENTS:
Part 1 Leitmotif - redesigning governance for guiding global transformations: mission - improving capacities to govern; foundations in political philosophy.
Part 2 The problematic: unprepared societies and obsolete governance; predicaments and opportunities; political culture and obstacles.
Part 3 Redesign requirements: gearing for higher-order tasks; a "feature model" of high-quality governance.
Part 4 The resolution: approaches to redesign; fostering "raison d'humanite"; virtues against vices; empowering the people with public affairs enlightenment; refashioning governance elites; on rulership; deepening policy reflection; qualifying in "fuzzy-gambling"; improving the central minds of government; restructuring governance architecture; governing private power; making global governance more resolute; augmenting oversight; gearing governance for crises; strengthening the autonomy of high-quality government; finale - governance redesign pending a quantum leap.
