Smart Governance: Governing the Global Knowledge Society

Campus Verlag, 2007 - 222 páginas

In the wake of globalization, national governments are becoming increasingly interdependent, and knowledge is arguably becoming the most valuable form of capital. Helmut Willke's Smart Governance offers a new perspective on global governance from the vantage point of a global knowledge society.

Employing a case study of the global financial system and an analysis of several governance regimes, Willke contends that markets, legal systems, and morality must evolve to cope with uncertainty, build capacities, and achieve resilience. Smart Governance will change the way economists, historians, and political scientists view international cooperation.
