In the twenty-first century our ecomies are more globalized than ever - why t our politics too? In The Unfinished Global Revolution former UN Deputy Secretary-General Mark Malloch-Brown argues that national governments are longer equipped to address such complex global issues as climate change and poverty. Increasingly NGOs, civil society and the private sector are filling in the gaps. Drawing on his experiences at the frontlines of international development - from Cambodia to Darfur, Washington to UN headquarters - Malloch-Brown argues that we must embrace these increasingly powerful networks to form a wholly new approach to global politics.
Mark Malloch-Brown was Minister of State at the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, and has previously been United Nations Deputy Secretary-General under Kofi Annan (2006-7), Head of the UN Development Programme (1999-2005), Vice-President of External Affairs for the World Bank (1994-9) and political correspondent for the Economist (1977-9).
