In this book, leading international relations experts and practitioners examine through theory and case study the prospect for successful multilateral management of the global economy and international security. In the theory section contributors tackle the big questions: Why is there an apparent rising tide of calls for reform of current multilateral organizations and institutions? Why are there growing questions over the effectiveness of global governance? Is the reform of current organizations and institutions likely or possible? Case studies include the examination of difficulties facing global development, the challenges facing the IMF and the governance of global finance, the problems of the UN 2005 World Summit and its failed reform, and the WTO and the questions raised by the prolonged Doha Development Round. Co-published with the Centre for International Governance Innovation

MEDIA REVIEWS
Can the World Be Governed? provides a valuable, if often quite basic, introduction to the issues confronting global governance. Its well-known contributors address a broad array of issues, from institutional creation to the relationship between multi- and unilateralism and the impact of national government structures on those of global governance.... The empirical material provides clear illustrations of the complexities faced by actors seeking to bring better order to the chaos of international political action.... Certainly a useful first reference for those looking to learn more about global governance, today and tomorrow.''--Laura Carsten "Millennium Journal of International Studies, 2011 "
