Book Contents

Democratic Global Governance is a component of Encyclopedia of Institutional and Infrastructural Resources in the global Encyclopedia of Life Support Systems (EOLSS), which is an integrated compendium of twenty one Encyclopedias.

The theme on Democratic Global Governance relates the critical international issues of the post-war era to the major decisions of the UN and its IGO network. It is divided into two topics: the first concerns global governance and the collective decision processes of the UN system, while the second reviews and analyzes the impact of the nongovernmental sector as it has grown in strength and become part of a nascent global civil society. This volume is aimed at the following five major target audiences: University and College students Educators, Professional practitioners, Research personnel and Policy analysts, managers, and decision makers and NGOs.
