  • 16th Science and Culture Meeting - Globalization and Its Consequences: New Paths toward Global Governance.
    Erik IZREALEWICZ (Institut Aspen France)

    Can a global society function durably without a global government? The current process of economic globalisation, which can be seen particularly in the recent increase in goods and capital trade, has revived this old question.
