Example text

The most profound challenge to the political and moral imagination at the present time is to depict a post-Westphalian scenario that is sufficiently rooted in 20 • THE DECLINING WORLD ORDER emergent trends to engender widespread hope and mobilize social forces on behalf of such a commitment. ” A post-Westphalian world organized around short-term market forces with ever-widening gaps, deepening pockets of poverty, numerous “black holes” consisting of collapsed governance structures, and control mechanisms dominated by increasingly sophisticated technology at the disposal of elites serving the interests of business/finance.

In a sense, this postWestphalian outlook regarded the ecological stability of the planet and its increasing interdependence as establishing a functional foundation for moving beyond the operational codes of behavior in an anarchical society of unequal sovereign states. Such transnational activ ism was also viewed as a positive expression of resistance to the reach and impact of global corporations and banks.

Globalization can be understood either modestly as identifying a dominant trend toward integration in an economistic era of late Westphalian geopolitics, or more fundamentally as signaling the birth of a planetary structure that is dominated by market forces. The slippery and ambiguous nature of the term “globalization” is partly a result of this uncertainty about whether, at this stage, to specify these emergent structures of world order that seem to be shaping current history in new directions.
