The paper explores how the global or international realm has changed, with social justice and special interests replacing the policies of competition and economics. The paper examines the implications this has for policymaking, organizations, government types, and international relations.

From the Paper:

"In the days of feudalism, and even after the Peace of Westphalia created the modern state, the fields of International Relations were primarily concerned with the competitive aspects of the economy and war. Today, however, the modern world has concerns that bring the community together instead of focusing on competition. Some of these concerns include the environment, human rights, and war and peace. These issues have fostered a new world community specifically in that they affect the world as a whole. In the form of Civil Society Organizations (CSOs), Nongovernmental Organizations (NGOs), and Intergovernmental Organizations (IGOs) specialty groups have organized around these issues and are attempting to form a global community to address them and change them. Often, this is called the global civil society--a united, international society concerned with achieving common goals. The Cosmopolitan theorists have modified this idea to come up with the theory of the transnational public sphere."
