Abstract:In the opening years of the 21st century the question of 'governance' has moved to the center of our political, economic, social, personal andreligious lives.The most immediate and obvious reason for this is that the dominant institutions of contemporary societies - international law regimes, state governments, the global financial system and the corporate organization of economic life, educational and cultural institutions of all kinds - have lost their capacity to govern the spheres of human activity for which they are deemed responsible in such a way as to maintain the common good.
