This book provides a detailed examination of the interface between diplomatic method and new forms of global governance located at the world conferences sponsored by the United Nations. Cast as a series of tests highlighting key concepts and issues central to the operation of international relations, this work demonstrates that global governance has become a multi-layered process within which states and non-state actors alike play vital, if often conflicting roles. The role of Canada and Canadians in UN World Conferences is explored as a unique and representative sample of how state-craft and new forms of society-craft have taken shape over the past decade. The picture that emerges suggests a deepening network of institutions, actors, and organizations that are animating the complex regimes that govern the major arenas of world politics. The analysis supports the view that a deep residue of multilateralism still exists in a country such as Canada but argues that this tradition faces on-going challenges from a variety of sources.
