Институциональная основа формирования постиндустриального миропорядка
This article presents the problem of forming a new world order in the context of post-industrial civilizational transit after the collapse of the old bipolar one. Under the circumstances, the world order cannot be formed within the paradigm of polarity with its institutional basis laid by pole states, the relationship between which is built in correlation with their military and economic power resources. The fact that the number of sovereign UN member states has significantly increased from the initial 50 to 193 with each of these states possessing all the rights and claiming that their interests and goals should be taken into consideration within the system of international relations calls for a different institutional basis of the world order. Furthermore, in the process of post-industrial transit the institution of state itself undergoes significant changes. As a result of globalization, the borders of nation-states become porous for such areas as world market of goods, products and services, cross-border information and communications, international legal framework. New transnational organizational forms emerge. These new forms and, in the first place, international interstate organizations (IIO), which have significantly grown in number as well, can form the institutional basis of the post-industrial world order. In the context of this world order formation, the main interest is in political IIOs created for the purpose of intercountry political cooperation including the issues of joint defense and collective security, as well as for regulation of international relations on a wide range of topics.It is fair to assume that the multilevel network of IIOs with its distributed umbrella-shaped architecture, which will develop and improve in the process of civilizational transit, will constitute the political institutional basis for the emerging post-industrial world order. This structure creates a polycentric configuration of international relations, where various political IIOs from global to ultimately local act as multilevel centers for cooperation and coordination of political interests of different states. At the same time, the key problem of efficiency of the existing political INGOs in preventing and sustainably neutralizing international and local military conflicts as well as political crises persists.
