Order contact: Hardcopy not available

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.
