Global leadership and global systemic issues
This analysis of "global leadership" delves into the question of who should be in the vanguard of global policy issues of systemic nature and worldwide concern, e.g. global finance and monetary system, climate change, global governance and the nature of the emerging world society. Global systemic issues will arise increasingly due to growing interdependence and interrelationships of the countries and peoples of the world. One of the main challenges is to evolve multilateral, participatory and democratic approaches to study, understand, deal with and act on such complex issues. Achieving this goal will require strengthening the United Nations, overcoming unilateralism and the traditional intellectual dominance of the North.
