Global governance: of, by and for whom?. -- Global governance in most senses and in most cases will link the local and the global; and the individual and the national/international realms. -- The sum of all global governances is not likely to be entirely coherent or to avoid competitive or antagonistic relationships. -- Global governance needs to be relational, not merely technocratic. -- Although global governance arrangements concern state behaviours to some degree and rely on state compliance and furtherance, the regimes are not only about states. -- Global governance will rely on normative acceptance rather thean lego-political enforcement. -- Global governance systems must deal with or be able to accoomdate large-scale violations/disruptions. -- Global governance must be highly adaptive in respect of changing human circumstances. -- However extensive the coverage, global governance arrangements will remain aspirational to some degree. -- The human rights regime as global governance.
