This book -- one in the four-volume set, Global Governance and the Quest for Justice -- focuses on the international and regional organisations that represent the key players in the evolving global order. The papers in this collection seek to map the real world of global governance -- exploring who governs and how, what the leading international and regional organisations claim to do and what they actually do -- as well as assessing the gap between the ideal of constitutionalised global governance and the actuality of governance under globalisation. The contributors discuss what it would mean for global governance to aspire to Rule of Law standards of transparency, accountability and participation together with categorical respect for human rights. In this collection, the perspective of modern public lawyers is systematically applied to the governance deficit associated with globalisation and to its institutional correction in pursuit of a legitimate regime of global governance.
