The problems created by globalization can only be solved by using globalization. In this case study, we realize that the problem of drug trafficking which was caused by different interactions between countries, can only be solved through interactions between countries as well.
The creation of a single world order will have immense benefits, in terms of arresting criminals, and governance in general. It will make it very simple to “manage all the problems of the world”.
However, people have argued that, there is no need for a “global world order” or “global governance”. Just because the world is becoming more and more globalized each day, does not mean that there is a need to accelerate this globalization any further. The creation of a global world order will have a lot of consequences, a lot of which i believe will not be in the best interest of independent states, especially developing countries. Already, developing countries are subject to many decisions made by westernized countries, through the different interactions that take place as a result of trade, loans, etc. These decisions may not always benefit the developing countries, but will almost always benefit the developed western countries. How then is the creation of a “global world order” going to benefit everyone? I believe it will just dissolve the idea of a “state”, although Slaughter argues that “the state is not disappearing, but it is disaggregating into its component institutions, which are increasingly interacting principally with their foreign counterparts across borders”. She continues to argue that, the component institutions will represent the national interest of the individual countries. However, in such a system, there will always be the people at the top, and some at the bottom, and those at the bottom will always ensure that decisions made are to their benefit, and not necessarily to the benefit of everyone. The state will disappear, because countries might not be allowed to make independent decisions without the approval of the “global world order”.
We then move on to the issue of culture and how one thing that might be viewed in one country as “improper” might be viewed in another as “proper”. For example, in Ghana, beating up your child is no big deal, and you might even be commended for beating your child if they did something wrong. In many western countries, this is not the case. therefore, in the creation of a “global world order”, who will get to decide if this will be deemed right or wrong? (this example is in terms of a judicial system)
Is Global Governance what we really want?
