Abstract

The nation-state has had its day. Not just as a governance context but as an analytical tool, the state has failed most those who are in desperate need of good governance. In the resource rich and regulatory poor world the state has collaborated in its own demise. Created as a shelter for the common good, the state is now a shell for sheltering self-interest. From this deontological demise grows crisis and in a globalized world such crisis is beyond the territoriality which states treasure.Regulating global crisis sounds like a contradiction in terms. If ever there was an era of crisis worldwide, man-made and natural, it is now. At the same time as global warming, epidemic poverty and disease, international financial meltdown, and the erosion of self-determination and privacy reveal, regulatory strategies are failing the challenge. Then why attempt to address crisis with regulation at anything more than an aspirational level?
