Global Society covers the new agenda in international relations and encourages innovative approaches to the study of international issues from a range of disciplines. It promotes the analysis of international transactions at multiple levels, and in particular, the way in which these transactions blur the distinction between the sub-national, national and transnational levels. An ever integrating global society raises a number of issues for international relations which do not fit comfortably within established 'Paradigms'. Among these are the international consequences of nationalism and struggles for identity, migration, racism, religious fundamentalism, terrorism and criminal activities, famines, genocides, the spread of contagious disease and pestilence, and environmental degradation. Similarly, the globalization of normative super-structures, such as of liberal capitalism or of communications, such as the Internet, influences transactions at all levels and challenges state controls, for instance overflows of capital and of information. Global Society therefore promotes the analysis of the internationalization of various levels of social interaction from a multitude of disciplines, including international relations, political science, political philosophy, international political economy, international law, international conflict analysis and sociology. Global Society is published by Carfax Publishing Limited on behalf of the University of Kent at Canterbury.
