Abstract

Global Governance 16 (2010), 1–12 Enhancing International Cooperation: Between History and Necessity Tom Farer and Timothy D. Sisk Thoughts from the New Coeditors: Where and Why Are We Going? The transfer of editorial stewardship for a journal provides the occasion to re- think the journal’s purposes and its place in the dense forest of texts claiming attention. If our view of these matters differed radically from those of our dis- tinguished predecessors, it is very unlikely that we would have been called, much less chosen, to assume the journal’s direction. Still, there are likely to be nuanced differences among editors. At a minimum, each set inevitably has its own way of expressing its view of the journal’s purposes and place. This arti- cle describes where we seek to take the journal in the coming years, and why. Global Governance: Institutions, Identities, and Interests What do we mean by the phrase “Global Governance”? To us it refers to the norms and institutions (of varying degrees of formality) and processes by means of which social goods—including wealth, power, knowledge, health, and authority—are constantly being generated and allocated by public, pri- vate, and nongovernmental actors through their cooperative and competitive actions.
