Nation-states as obstacles to world order

The present system of world order, despite the rise of transnational economics and politics and the multiplication of specialized international activities of a functional kind, remains state-oriented. The quality of world order at a particular time depends on the pattern of voluntary or coercive relations among governments representing states. The nature of the adjustments made and the persisting pattern of state imperatives imperil human survival and the quality of life on earth.
