Chapter Summary

This chapter works from two premises. First, globalization has undermined the presumption in classical International Relations (IR) literature that a sharp demarcation divides international from domestic ethics, with questions of justice only applicable to the domestic level. Second, understanding the nature of and prospects for governance of pressing global problems such as the environment, the focus of the chapter requires attention to the ethical dimension of global governance. The chapter also discusses a preliminary theory of "good" global governance originally developed by Emanuel Adler and Bernstein (2004) and uses it to assess the current condition of and prospects for sustainable and effective governance to address environmental problems under globalization. Both of the above assumptions challenge conventional thinking in the IR field, which largely ignores the normative dimension of international institutions and maintains a strict divide between normative and explanatory theory.

Keywords: Bernstein; Emanuel Adler; environmental governance; globalization; International Relations (IR) literature
