A Global Community?
Utrecht University School of Law
ACUNS Annual Meeting, Panel 4, 2006
What does the idea of ´Global Community` add to multilateralism? In my view, the idea of ´Global Community` adds two things: first, it may give multilateralism a sense of direction by defining the global values that should guide this cooperation. Secondly, the idea of a ´Global Community` may make clear that those engaging in multilateralism have a shared responsibility and a collective interest, over and above self-interest, to make it work. I will also look at the reality of international relations; there may be an idea, but is there also a practice of ´Global Community`?
