New Editorial Team Introduction





     The pursuit of peace and progress cannot end in a few years in either
       victory or defeat.
     The pursuit of peace and progress, with its trials and its errors, its suc-
        cesses and its setbacks, can never be relaxed and never abandoned.

Humanity stands at a crossroads. These are challenging days for both the earth
and for its inhabitants. Well-established norms of civility and cooperation are
increasingly disputed, confronted, and even mocked by inward-looking and fre-
quently xenophobic world leaders and other political actors. As we fully view
the Anthropocene, a time when human beings exert significant influence over
life on the planet, we are confronted with the potential for ecological disas-
ter and the glaring need for collective solutions. Yet there is still reason for
hope. International cooperation is flourishing in places: literacy rates are up,
life expectancy rates are rising, interstate war is nearly absent. But one thing
is clear: global governance, which at one point seemed merely prudent, is now
absolutely essential for our collective continued existence. At the same time
it is being rejected for myopic, self-serving financial, economic, and political
purposes.
   The relevance of the work published between the covers of Global Gover-
nance has never been greater or more urgent. As the new editorial team, we
call for continued focus on the ways that global affairs are managed; we find
a growing need for scholarly research and policy-oriented discussions on pub-
lic/private partnerships, more inclusive governance, fostering consensus, inno-
vation in capacity building, and finding ways to enhance and reform global
institutions. We also encourage reflection on regimes as well as less institution-
alized approaches to governance. One global challenge clearly entails convinc-
ing reluctant publics, and actively obstructionist domestic actors, of the need
