We therefore thought it necessary to tackle the subject – a highly innovative and difficult one – of the global polity and global policies in a world undergoing unprecedentedly deep transformations, some of which we have touched on in previous issues of our journal.
To accomplish this we have called on a number of well-respected intellectuals for help: Sabino Cassese, who compared notes with us throughout the preparation of the issue; and Lorenzo Ornaghi and Roland Robertson, who wrote the main articles. The issue promises to be a highly worthwhile one in terms of the quality and variety of the contributions we have received.
It is our hope to stimulate a debate around this attempt of ours – difficult, certainly, but in some respects also courageous – not only about this issue’s content and the thinking it brings together, but also about the political implications of our chosen subject for a journal like Glocalism.
