Abstract

This Editorial Comment applies the author's concept of the international law of co-progressiveness to civilizations. Civilizations cannot take the place of States but can play the role of promoters of co-progressiveness. The success of this role depends on the progressiveness of a particular civilization and its ability to manage inter-civilizational relations. Three tools for managing inter-civilizational relations are suggested: (1) a “two-men mindedness” attitude when taking action; (2) a Thomas Henry Sanderson lens when perceiving a challenge or disadvantage; and (3) benign competition.

Keywords: international law of co-progressiveness, civilizations
