People, goods, and information all move faster and more cheaply than ever. The unique dynamics of globalization raise questions about the proper role of the traditional nation state versus formal structures of global governance, such as the World Trade Organization, proliferating non-governmental organizations, and wired transnational social networks. How much has globalization in fact limited the autonomous policy-setting powers of states? Should states cede some powers to forms of global governance? Do they have a choice? Will states wither in the face of increasing global interconnectedness? Should we want that?Leading off the discussion this month is Daniel W. Drezner, associate professor of international politics at the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy at Tufts University and author of All Politics is Global: Explaining International Regulatory Regimes. Leaping into the fray, we will have Jeremy Rabkin, professor of government at Cornell University and author of Law without Nations? Why Constitutional Government Requires Sovereign States- Ann Florini director of the Centre on Asia and Globalisation at the National University of Singapore and senior fellow and the Brookings Institution- and Kal Raustiala, UCLA professor of law and director of the UCLA Ronald W. Burkle Center for International Relations.
