Contemporary society faces unprecedented challenges of global governance. The policy agenda is crowded with issues that are substantially global in nature, such as communications, conflict, ecology, energy, finance, health, labour standards and trade. The ways that these matters are handled (or mishandled) have profound implications for material welfare, social justice, democracy, peace, and perhaps even humanity’s very survival. And yet, it is hard to relate the often rather abstract rules and practices of global governance to what happens in our daily lives. To address this challenge, we invite members of the Warwick community to visualise global governance – through cartoons, collages, photos, sketches and other artworks.
