Hi frds,
almost all problems we face are international/global, intertwined, and complex (climate change, financial markets, economic systems, geopolitics, global trade, food systems, global wealth creation, pandemics, refugees, etc.), where effects are intergenerational and full of moral hazard.
Would love to learn what percentage share of a population thinks globally and holistic in the following regions:
-USA
-Continental Europe
-UK
-Japan
-Singapore
-Scandinavia
If possible a breakdown of the generations would be fantastic. Especially Gen Z.
Appreciate research.

What was the pandemic and post-pandemic impact of the SARS-CoV-2 (Covid-19) coronavirus pandemic on globalisation processes?
Increase in the scale of international scientific cooperation on SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus research and analysis of Covid-19 disease development; use of analogous anti-pandemic security instruments; disrupted chains of international supply and supply logistics; analogous changes in trends in financial markets, including raw materials markets, other types of production factors and stock exchanges; increase in the scale of digitisation of remote communication and business processes; increase in the scale of digitisation of public offices and institutions; increase in the scale of e-commerce, e-banking, e-payments carried out via the Internet, e-logistics, remote working, e-learning, e-government, development of online and mobile banking; negative social and economic impacts; a decrease in demand for energy and other raw materials in 2020 and an increase in demand for raw materials from 2021 onwards; a decrease in economic activity in the service sectors affected by the lockdowns; the analogous use of soft monetary and fiscal policy instruments; the emergence of inflationary pressures; an increase in inflation; the emergence of opportunities to accelerate the processes of pro-climate transformation of the energy sector, but these opportunities have been used to varying degrees in different countries, resulting in different levels of energy and environmental security in different countries, etc. These are just some of the effects of the pandemic and post-pandemic impact of the SARS-CoV-2 (Covid-19) coronavirus on globalisation processes. I am conducting research on this issue. I have described the results of my research and key aspects of this problematic in an article which, when published, I posted on my profile of this Research Gate portal:

Global logistics is being reorganized by more resilient models of supply chain management. Increased online education programs offer the possibility to study with famous global institutions from home, with limited physical residency. Tourism and travel have seen a clear reduction, in global numbers. Information and communication technology are now used to think in alternative models of globalization, e.g. glocalization.

In which direction will the current crises, i.e. the post-pandemic economic crisis triggered by high inflation, the energy crisis, the developing food crisis in some countries and the developing global climate crisis in the long term, change the globalisation processes in the 21st century?
Both the global financial crisis of 2007-2009 and the lockdown and quarantine crisis of 2020 caused by the SARS-CoV-2 (Covid-19) coronavirus pandemic, the disrupted international supply and supply logistics chains and the supply problems of semiconductor-based microprocessors have seriously impeded the development of economic globalisation processes.
In addition, the currently developing crises (energy, food, climate) are also likely to modify globalisation processes in certain ways.
In view of the above, I address the following research question to the esteemed community of researchers and scientists:
In what direction will the current crises, i.e. the post-pandemic economic crisis caused by high inflation, the energy crisis, the developing food crisis in some countries and the developing global climate crisis in the long term, change the processes of globalisation in the 21st century?

I have an issue finding a theory which would help me on to what extend Denmark legitimizes WHO on handling the COVID-19 pandemic as an international organization. It would be an approach similar to global governance, in which nation-states follow the agenda set by international organizations, rather than having a more nationalistic policy-setting approach.
I will be comparing domestic health security policies adopted by the Danish government with the guidlines and obligations issued by the WHO on the issue of COVID-19.

Answer
Dear Garry King,
Yes you are right. I also believe that the growing risk of a global climate crisis at the end of the 21st century, the progressing global warming process and the need to urgently carry out a pro-environmental transformation of the global economy are becoming one of the important factors of globalization in the current 21st century. Yes, the key issue is whether this growing pro-environmental awareness of citizens will translate into appropriate decisions made by political leaders and decision makers. Unfortunately, the last UN Climate Summit COP26, which took place in the first half of November 2021 in Glasgow, Scotland, indicates that, unfortunately, the decisions taken and real actions in this matter are insufficient.

Does the globalization of financial markets increase the scope of potential systemic credit risk in the sphere of financial systems, including banking systems with particular focus on investment banking?
In the context of the development of international capital markets, the development of stock exchanges, increasingly globalized and related, the importance of globalization of financial markets, including capital markets and stock exchanges, is increasing.
On these capital markets, there are also increasingly large, internationally operating investment banks and investment funds, whose profits generate increasingly from speculative transactions of securities issued by companies and the public sector, including also Treasury bonds of other countries.
In addition, currency markets are growing, on which speculatively operating internecional banks and hedge investment and investment funds also speculatively. Before the emergence of the global financial crisis in 2008, it was mainly investment banking that approved the excessive levels of credit risk and speculative, too high, overvalued valuations of securities on stock exchanges.
The recent global financial crisis that appeared in autumn 2008 was an example of the increase in potential systemic credit risk in many countries in which the governments of these countries through the issue of government bonds and their sale to foreign investors led to a significant increase in the risk of a liquidity crisis in the state finances and in many smaller economies, they generated major crises in the debt of state finances.
Do you agree with my opinion?
Therefore, I am asking you the following questions:
- What impact does economic globalization have on the potential increase in systemic credit risk on a supranational scale?
- Does the globalization of financial markets and the development of growing global banks and investment funds increase the level of potential systemic credit risk, increase the risk of destablization on many capital markets and thus increases the likelihood of generating another global financial crisis?
- Does the globalization of financial markets increase the scope of potential systemic credit risk in the sphere of financial systems, including banking systems with particular focus on investment banking?

Currently, the UN climate summit in Katowice is taking place in Katowice. COP (Conference of the Parties) on climate policy on Earth. UN climate summits, i.e. COP (Conference of the Parties) are global conferences during which climate policy actions are negotiated. Poland twice hosted them - in 2008 in Poznań and in 2013 in Warsaw. In December 2018, the climate summit is held for the first time now in Katowice in Poland.
During this summit, conferences are held, discussions are held on the need to develop a sustainable development policy and the need for development of ecological, renewable energy sources in order to generate a reduction in greenhouse gas emissions in the future and ultimately reduce the average annual temperature rise on the Earth's surface. From the discussions it follows that it is necessary to develop eco-innovations, new pro-ecological energy sources, development of electromobility of transport means. It is necessary to develop and implement on a large scale renewable energy sources. In addition, it is important to increase the scale of afforestation, as forests and the flora contained in them absorb a large proportion of greenhouse gas emissions.
As part of this year's UN Climate Summit, the 24th Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (COP24), 14th Meeting of the Parties to the Kyoto Protocol (CMP 14) and the Conference of the Paris Agreement signatories (CMA 1) are held. About 20,000 people from 190 countries participate in the event, including politicians, representatives of non-governmental organizations, and scientific and business spheres.
Perhaps during this UN climate summit important and specific agreements, declarations and signed agreements on the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions will be taken. The present lectures show that in recent years the warming process of the Earth's climate has accelerated significantly and therefore, in the black scenario of future climate changes, the temperature on the Earth's surface can rise by 4 ° C to the end of the 21st century. If this happened, then the scale of climate-related cataclysms that are dangerous to humans, including droughts, floods, fires and weather anomalies in many places around the world, will increase many times. The problem is very serious globally and therefore a lot depends on whether international cooperation will develop in order to limit these problems and their negative effects.
In view of the above, I would like to ask you: Should you think that international cooperation should increase to reduce greenhouse gas emissions on Earth? In addition, another key question arises: how much of this international cooperation is possible, to what extent will real and effective measures be undertaken on the basis of the discussions and declarations undertaken to reduce greenhouse gases?

Do multinational corporations and financial institutions, including banks and investment funds, play a significant role in generating globalization processes?
In recent years, the importance of supranational large corporations and financial institutions, including banks and investment funds, has been growing.
These large industrial, service, commercial and financial corporations are a particularly important factor in contemporary globalization processes. If such large corporations operate cross-border, cross-border in many countries, including small economies, generate negative processes of globalization, then in these countries reverse and deglobalization processes may appear.
Deglobalization, ie the reverse process to globalization, is taking place most strongly in those economic regions in which globalization processes generate many negative aspects.

Financial flows would tend to suggest that the degree of internationalization of financial markets has increased over recent years to reach levels broadly comparable to those seen in the period of marked financial market integration which preceded World War I. As mentioned at the outset, however, quantities alone cannot be a good indicator of globalization because the law of one price may still not apply when cross-border financial flows become more widespread.

What kind of scientific research dominate in the field of globalization?
In developed countries, knowledge-based economies are characterized by the development of information services, and production processes are increasingly determined by the quality of such factors as information, technology, innovations, patents, etc. In addition, analogous standards of telecommunications, transaction, market, financial systems, etc. operate in different countries. Globalization is therefore still progressing.
In connection with the above, the communication, transactional and information aspects of globalization are characterized by a positive meaning. It is referred to as "the Earth as a" global village. "Through more and more modern communication, the global circulation of information is carried out in real time via Internet teleinformation systems.
But not all aspects of globalization have positive aspects.

What kind of scientific research dominate in the field of Sustainable pro-ecological development of the global economy?
Probably the future of humanity depends on the next decade. If, over the next few years, renewable energy sources replacing traditional energy based on the burning of minerals are developed on a massive scale, it might be possible for humankind to avoid a climatic catastrophe in the 21st century. The international climate agreement that currently (December 2018) concluded in Katowice in Poland may be a late and insufficient agreement, because most countries do not intend to develop high-budget projects for the construction and development of power plants based on renewable energy sources. In addition, changes in the automotive industry, changes leading to the development of motorization in the direction of electromobility are too slow. The problem is serious because it concerns the future of all humanity in the perspective of the next two to three generations, yet the necessary changes and reforms in the implementation of economic principles of sustainable pro-ecological development are too slow. With the current pace of changes, there may be a shortage of time to implement the necessary pro-ecological undertakings, and then the problem of global warming will become an irreversible process and will constantly accelerate!

Pro-ecological economic development is a pretty mouthful term.Both economic development and environment in a given economy are important. The balance between them is difficult. Finding a suitable model with respect to different economies( which are at different stages of development) is the need of time.An interesting ideas can be: "Finding a Sustainable Model for a particular industry or sector in a particular country or region". The sector may be power,agriculture,mining, forestry...anything.If it addresses the real problem of that society, it will be a great contribution. The issue of pro-ecological development rests on two things: first, the balance between our need and greed; second, local people participation.

Examples would include Partha Chatterjee's argument that the poor in the global do not really form part of civil society as the state treats them as populations to managed for their well-being rather than citizens bearing equal rights. Instead the poor are adversely incorporated into rule through political parties and patronage in 'political society'.
Another example is Asef argument that the urban poor often seek to avoid the state rather than engage it to claims rights as they live illegally. He terms this a practice of 'quiet encroachment'.
Both these analyses call the mainstream liberal ontology of state-civil society-citizen into question by questioning (i) the conception of rights-based advocacy of the poor by civil society and (ii) the concept of democratic citizenship respectively.
Can you assist with other examples and theories?
Relevant answer
Answer
Thanks Tomer, I also think the point that Bayat was speaking of non-democratic countries with more repressive state apparatuses is important. So for example, my current work on land invasions or occupation in South Africa suggests that poor occupiers expect the state to try and remove them and prepare to resist this knowing that the state will not become too violent (usually). The strategy is not only to move as many as possible and build shacks quickly but also take furniture and children to up the costs of the state removing the shacks. Some have use the terms 'rebellion of the poor' (Alexander 2010) or insurgency (Holston 2008, Pithouse 2009) to describe this, but I am not convinced that the poor imagine themselves as democratic citizens asserting rights. At least not entirely. Hence my interest in alternative theories.

Hello, I'm trying to get and academic community perspective on the UN SDGs strategy and locate relevant studies about it.
Are there relevant or meta studies evaluating the UN Sustainable Development Goals strategy?
Are these studies scattered across the different disciplines that the SDGs represent?
Is the 2030 UN Agenda, with the 17 SDGs and 169 targets enough or sufficient for igniting and catalyzing change? What does academia says?
Thank you...
Relevant answer
Answer
As you probably know, the SDGs follow the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). Although most states were not able to meet their MDGs, the UN found some value in the approach. The MDGs and the SDGs are different in at least two important ways.
The MDGs were not negotiated by the world body, although they were approved in the Millennium Summit by the world's leaders. The 17 SDGs were part of a long negotiation process involving the UN member states, UN agencies, UN funds and civil society (or NGOs with some type of UN representation either via the ECOSOC or the UN Dept. of Public Information). The public was also part of this discussion via a online survey called "Our World" -- I have a few former students who work on this initiative. Thus the SDGs are more legitimate in this respect.
The second is that the UN with all these stakeholders created a set of subgoals to help measure member states' adherence to the goals. For the MDGs, the measurement process happened late in the process.
To understand the SDGs, I think you need to first understand why the MDGs were actually introduced. And the MDGs' objectives were less expansive. The goal of the MDGs was to eradicate extreme forms of poverty what the World Bank back then classified as people living with $1 or less per day. The SDGs did embrace this goal but it has widened the number of goals.
If I can suggest one article, check out: Fukuda-Parr and Hulme (2009) "International Norm Dynamics and the 'End of Poverty' in the journal: Global Governance. The authors explain how poverty became a central issue at the UN during the 1990s. This article really helps map the arguments that made sustainability a key UN objective, making it equal to the extension/protection of human rights and the preservation of international peace and security.
Also check out all the negotiations regarding the SDGs. There are transcripts for these talks. The UNDPI also held meetings for civil society organizations trying to explain how the SDGs are different from the MDGs and asking for input during the process. I was in many of these meetings but I am not sure if transcripts of these meetings are available.
Good luck with your research! I hope this helps out.

Answer
Hi Marcin
I'd look first at the work of Nikolas Rose. From his early work on The Psychology Complex to his contemporary publications, he deploys Foucault expertly to understand care, power and truth, among other topics. I imagine if you note what can be done with Foucauldian concepts you will then read back into the major work, and perhaps even some of the recently-published lectures.
I would be cautious about deploying governmentality too readily -- there are too many academics these days using that concept to explain everything without bothering to do any real analysis ... just saying ...

Dear all, I am currently searching for literature that looks at how states "multitask" in the sense of how they deal with similar problems at various locations of governance, i.e. national/regional/global. I am familiar with the literatur on institutiona interplay, i.e. how governance problems are dealt with at several institutions at the same time. I am unaware of literature that looks at what has been called "vertical interplay" and how states actually make decisions in this regard. Thank you!
Relevant answer
Answer
Check out the literature revolving around Organizational Theory, more specifically the organizational process model, and foreign-policy-making. A lot of that touches down upon "multi-tasking" and could indeed be called vertical interplay. I used this literature to create an argument for multi-tasking in national/regional/global drug policy-making.

Relevant answer
Answer
I am afraid that cases of global migrations as seen in Europe recently, being it from the war reasons (when it would be illegal not to grant asylum) or going to the economical immigration (when there is a margin of appreciation of each state whether to grant asylum or not) would have, in few generations, a global impact. Also, for example, some counties, Canada involved too, grant asylum to persons with higher education so they could meet Canadian requirements for labor market. This is what I find very troubling because I can imagine a global imbalance among the populations from developed and under-developed countries that would for sure lead to extending the gap between rich and poor and eventually bring to large scale social crises and emergent situations. 
Now, there is already International Organization for Migration (IOM), although not part of the UN system, so I believe their resources must be used to tackle issues of global migrations. I wouldn't overwhelm the international organization of such kind with an administrative machinery that is always connected to the UN, but perhaps some organization, even IOM, can get more political power to mitigate between states and emerging immigration to decrease the probability of dangers that I mentioned above.

The grave global problems that face civilization now threaten to worsen in the future (e.g., global warming, water shortages, overpopulation, top soil depletion, renewable energy sources, income disparity, political polarity, etc.). The compartmentalization of the disciplines will not render a solution to anything. It has to be a multidisciplinary, systems approach to make any progress. What approaches can you recommend that would be applicable to solve at least some of these problems?
Relevant answer
Answer
I perceive the issue you raised from the lines and prism of modern constitutionalism and broadly constitutional studies, in this insight I think that the most serious challenge and decisive threat to the modernity are the nullification of the outcomes of the so-called enlightenment era, the undermining one of the central pillar of the enlightenment pattern and narrative - rationality. The recent events in the world, particularly Paris attacks and continuation of the struggle between rationalists and dogmatists or fundamentalists confirmed this thesis or approach. Thus, as enlightenment philosophers and thinkers put it correctly Sapare Aude is the most desirable motto of our age. The struggle for rationality is dynamic and as Arab Spring and other global events indicated never ended phenomenon.
As the 1776 Virginia Declaration of Rights states, “[n]o free government, or the blessings of liberty, can be preserved to any people, but by a firm adherence to
justice, moderation, temperance, frugality, and virtue, and by frequent recurrence to fundamental principles.” This was topical not only in the 18th century but remains as such today as well.

No, this is a book where we outline (in 2nd ed) Realism, Liberalism and Postinternationalism--Westview.  Then we show how each perspective asks different questions, seeks different data, give different dynamics, etc.  I was never his student, except in the collegial sense. We named the book after his famous article (and it is reproduced in the book).  He always liked it, and so did I. In the draft 3 edition, I tried to add some constructivism v rationalism with some success.  Oddly, Jim was such a rationalist, that I got to think theory relative to him.  It is possible to use his approach and give it a constructivist twist.

In over a quarter of century in IT and cultural/organizational change, I observed the obvious: governance is a social construct, and culture is embedded within technology - also often this is forgotten.
Since the 1990s, the number of "governance globalization" frameworks increased in number while narrowing in focus, with significant constraints on corporate culture and corporate citizenship (and, incidentally, democracy- not only at work).
The few examples that I saw first-hand in business included ISO9000, various BIS frameworks on risk (banking, but de facto since Basel II with an impact on other industries), SOX, and the never ending list of "standards" and "methodologies".
Therefore, if you can suggest existing papers and works, I would avoid re-inventing the wheel, as I am currently preparing a book to use within my activities.

I am conducting doctoral research using constitutive theory to better understand the role of trust in relation to the way international society deals with money or value transfer systems. I am hoping someone else is aware of the use of this theory in similar research for comparison.
Relevant answer
Answer
We are assessing the trust among people in 89 countries at a scale between one (very high) and 10 (very low) today and can consider that the countries with the best scores at the same time:
- are the best in handling sovereign debt through solidarity and the will to pay
  taxes and contributions.
- have the best equiibrium between their share in the world's GDP and their share
  in the world's wealth
- have a good ratio between sovereign debt and governmental income
A big amount of trust among people reduces the transaction costs e.g. in countries such as Switzerland, Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Japan, South Korea, New Zealand, Canada, Netherlands, Australia spend few public money on military, police and the legal system.
Resume: trust is increasing common wealth of a community.
Concerning remittance systems: Switzerland has almost zero costs for remittances.
That's one rason for the leading role of Switzerland in handling financial assets.
In my eyes there are only two constitutive theories for the impact of trust on economy: The categorical imperative of Immanuel Kant
and the work of Lao-Tzu. Sample quote: "A leader is best when people barely know he exists, when his work is done, his aim fulfilled, they will say: we did it ourselves."
So the leader - such as in Kant's definition  - trusts in his people and therefore is capable to retire.
Or this one: "The more laws and order are made prominent,
the more thieves and robbers there will be."
In opposite economy still uses the self-interest-hypothesis of Adam Smith. But you can of course assess trust or missing trust by calculating the transaction costs. Unfortunately the interest rate since 2000 is no longer an indicator for low trust.

I am currently developing an Australian Research Council 'Linkage' project to investigate various sustainable development mechanisms (emissions trading, payment for ecosystem services, certification), and work with participants and stakeholders to develop 'universal' standards for 'good' governance. Are you interested? If you are, your institution needs to dedicate funds, which are then matched, dollar for dollar, by the Australian Government. There is a 40% success rate with such grant applications. If you are working in standards development, follow sustainable development and market mechanisms, and have an interest in global governance you might be an ideal partner.

hello,
Gross developmental delay is defined by delay in two or more developmental domains (motor, speech, play...) with more than two standard below the mean. The delay can be established if functional developmental age is as less <33% below chronological age. It's difficult to find "age threshold" in the classification or litterature. Motor skills (sitting, standing, walking) thresholds are often a good signs, so I believe it's possible to detect DD at 9 months.

Good governance holds the attributes of transparency, efficiency, fairness participation, rule of law, accountability, and decency. Does the appropriate incorporation of these concepts in governance always lead to economic development and well-being?
Relevant answer
Answer
I agree with Srinivasan Rajamanickam that 'democracy' is not the same as 'participative governance', you can find one without the other, and neither are necessarily 'good' in terms of means and/or outcomes.
One of the most useful aspects, analytically, of the concept of 'governance' (without adjectives) is that it does not pre-define where or even how decisions are taken . i.e. it is not bound to any particular type of regime. The adjectives (good, poor etc) come from examining a case of governance in practice and adding value judgements about how things work, who gets what and how this affects both internal and 'external' relations.
'Good governance' (GG) is a much more prescriptive idea. In the international development arena during 1990s especially, use of the term often implied that nation-states had 'poor' governance if they were not also classified as 'democratic' and rather downplayed that some democracies still have 'poor' governance attributes such as vote rigging, weak public management, etc...
On the other hand, regimes promoting wars or inciting civil violence tend to be more destructive, at home and across borders, of general wellbeing and broad-based economic 'growth' than other ways of choosing leaders and policies. So, one public concern contributing to the popularity of 'good governance' as a global aspiration is that nation-states not only receive on-going support of (most of) the population under their 'authority' but the current leadership (government) and national aspirations also be seen as legitimate (or at least acceptable) internationally.
As the concepts underpining the GG notion, such as accountability, transparency, participation, rule of law etc, are subject to local interpretations, I would hesitate to treat good governance generically as a direct driver of economic growth or even wellbeing per se. But I think GG metrics at national level (eg from WB Institute) can be useful as indicators of a) regime acceptability and perhaps b) as a movement towards or away from wellbeing (depending on wellbeing and population definitions). Otherwise, I think one has to ask what difference GG principles have made in the context being investigated. The direction of influence may be surprising.

Empirical evidence as well as vast body of literature suggest that we are currently witnessing convergence in key developmental indicators. These include demographic indicators, such as fertility and mortality rates. At the same time the power patterns are shifting, most noticeably, from the West to the East. In this context, will development studies continue to be relevant? And consequently, what does it imply for the global governance structure, including international (developmental) organisations?
Relevant answer
Answer
Fifty years ago much thinking about development was “overarching” in nature. The Big Push, Marxian interpretations, Dependencia theory, Basic Needs, the Washington Consensus, these labels provide a signpost to the evolution of development thinking. Will development thinking be similarly “overarching” in the coming fifty years? Certainly the issues are no less important—climate change, ethnic conflict, rising inequality, global financial coordination, etc. And yet it seems to us that the future of the development discourse will have to address a diverse reality (Brazil versus Burundi) and multiple objectives of development (per capita income, sustainability, human development, empowerment, happiness), with the result that no single discipline and certainly not economics will be able to span the discourse by itself.
There will continue to be a debate between “big ideas” in development versus development seen as “one experiment at a time.” But the greater diversity of country and region specific development circumstances does seem to suggest that the era of overarching frameworks or nostrums is over, because the development discourse itself has become wide and ambitious, with multiple locations.
This does not of course mean the end of development thought. It will be needed for careful and rigorous building of arguments and analysis of evidence along the many dimensions and the many locations of development. And it will increasingly come from developing countries themselves. While inter-linkages between different aspects of development will still need to be explored, grand overarching theses that encompass the whole of the development paradigm are unlikely to thrive, and development thinkers of tomorrow will need a new humility when faced with growing complexity of the development terrain. This does not make development thought and practice any less exciting than the last fifty years. Just different. And perhaps more so.
