Analytical Paradigms Underpinning Debate on Global Governance

P. 33-45.

The concept of “global governance” emerged as the focus of active scientific debates mainly after the studies of Willy Brandt and his colleagues from the UN Commission on global governance. This Commission was created to discuss possibilities for solution by joint efforts of such global problems as deterioration of environment, fight against poverty, infection diseases, etc. In 1995 the Commission prepared its Report “Our global neighborhood”. The Report justifies necessity of global governance by claiming that its development is an essential part of humans’ efforts towards rational organisation of life on Earth and this process will continue forever (Our Global Neighborhood...1995). The reason for creation of global governance arises from the conviction that humankind after the era of global wars and global confrontation has a unique opportunity for adoption of the “global civil ethics”, which should be founded on the package of fundamental values, uniting people of all cultural, political, religious and philosophic beliefs. Such governance should manifest democratic principles on every level and should be exercised according to the established legal norms, which should embrace everyone.
