Given the critical link between globalization and global public goods, this publication presents a series of analyses aimed at contributing to a fuller understanding of the provision of global public goods.
The publication reveals how the provision of public goods today involves multiple authorities and actors of varying power reacting to crises in ways that are moved more by political compulsion than concern for crises. It goes on to highlight many weaknesses in the provision of global public goods today, while providing encouraging and constructive policy messages. Methods of improving the provision of global public goods and making globalization more manageable are also recommended. The effect on national policy by current day issues such as HIV/AIDS, financial stability, and peace and security are examined, while the basic difference in interests that mark globalization and international cooperation are analyzed.
