Global Governance (Cortuna)

It is important to keep in my mind that the world has to work together in order to make it a
really great place to live and in order to protect the future by protecting what we currently have
today. Global Governance exists in order to protect and pursue the goal of maintaining peace and
security, promote justice and to make sure that the system that we have gives equal rights to
everyone. It also exists to make sure that international trade and communication is well functioning
and unified.
The the thing is, the world and people are never perfect. We encounter a lot of challenges
and threats such as ethnic conflicts, terrorism, huge natural disasters, emerging diseases, scarcity, and
a lot more. In the article that I have read, it stated these problems of the Global Governance; first, the
“1944 Process”. This problem circulated on the past war and the consequences and aftermath it
caused, and was countered through a series of international discussions to design the post-war
security and economic architecture. Second, is the “Arrangement out of step”. This is about the risks
that will emerge and the opportunities that will come with socioeconomic and technological
advancement. Third, is “Missing sense of Ownership” where it is required to correspond on the sense
of ownership in the health and international system. Next, is, “Lacks Built-in Incentives” which is
about the UN having limited incentives in order to somehow influence private sector actions or to
sanction state for non-compliance. The fifth is “Public Governance Failures”. In order to address the
failures that came with globalization, there is a need for a more multidimensional and inclusive
approach in setting the norms and in generating collective action. The sixth is “Sweeping changes”
where it talks about the problems that aroused from the social, political, technological and economic
changes from the previous generations which took affect in the world’s cooperative architecture. The
seventh is that “Civic Culture Not Robust Enough” where it states that there is a gap between what
we profess and what we do. It states that our global economy lacks vigor in order to bring our
commitments to bear. The eight is, “Too Prone To Treat Human dignity as Outside Legitimate Purview”
where it states that human dignity is a matter for local and political responsibility and it will be quite
hard to leave questions with regards to the global welfare. The next problem is “Fragmentation of
Information and Leadership” where the institution’s confidence is wavering when it comes to
information due to fragmentation and it could also cause biases within the international system. The
tenth problem is, “Appetite for Reform Waned”. When the weaknesses of the world economy has
been laid bare, the government focused on social strategies in order to somehow escape from the
crisis which caused the appetite for cooperation and fundamental improvements in international
governance, to wane or fade. The last problem stated in the article is the “Historic error to Revert to
Complacency”. It would be a great historic error to revert to the usual international relations instead
of focusing on the serious global risks that are accumulating and are waiting for a proactive
cooperative response.
Cooperation, understanding, bravery and unity plays a big role in the Global Governance in
order to make the right decision and implement laws that are most favorable for everyone. I came to
realize and understand how “human” people actually are and there is not a single person exempted.
We feel fear, we try to escape instead of facing the problems head on, and we sometimes hide from
the cloaks of others. That is why each state or country has to choose the right leaders in order to have
someone who makes better and brave decisions and is also compassionate and a good role model
that would set a good example for the future generation.
