Literature Review: Mondialism problem for Politics

This “Ten Problems for Politics in the 2020s” booklet identifies ten relevant areas from very recent contributions put forward at academic level in the form journal articles, conference proceedings and students theses. Ten freely accessible internet references have been selected for each area and direct links are provided at the end of each chapter for own consultation. Our selected references do not intend to mirror ranking indexes nor establish novel classifications. On the contrary, they are meant to represent peer-reviewed, diverse and scientifically-sound case studies for vertical dissemination aimed at non-specialist readers. They will also be able to scoop even more references through the bibliography that is reported at the end of each selected reference.

Without further ado, these are the ten problems that we are going to introduce in this booklet:

  1. liberalism, 
  2. democracy,
  3. authoritarianism,
  4. mondialism,
  5. populism,
  6. immigration,
  7. diversity,
  8. international relations,
  9. instability,
  10. peace.

Each problem has its own dedicated chapter made of an introductory section, a short presentation of the ten selected references and a conclusions section.

The final chapter of this booklet will report the conclusions from each chapter again in order to provide a complete executive summary.

4 Mondialism

THE PROBLEM — Globalization to date has been a Westernized process of discovery and appropriation. The call for action in an exceptional situation that uses scientific knowledge to rationalize exceptional political decisions is an obvious target for criticism. There is a growing inconsistency of the nature of the world space due to the impact of dynamic changes in the system of international relations, also because of the recent COVID-19 pandemic.

CONCLUSIONS — Mondialism is a philosophical response to globalization’s dehumanization through de-spatialized planetarization. It must be ethically desirable for involved actors, politically feasible in the current international system and sustainable in the long-term for the sake of humankind survival and prosperity. There is an alignment of imbalance of levels of economic development of countries of the world and increase in number of poles in the course of formation of a new world order. The philosophers of the law are not trying to anticipate the fate of law in the circumstances of the absolute power. Affirmative, transcendent, and authoritarian utopias are contrasted with immanent, revolutionary, libertarian utopias. Transnational protest and activism have to be appreciated for their reshaping of spaces of the political, for developing and delivering a genuinely global perspective on political problems. Political scale is not a matter of rational design, or not primarily, but one of historical evolution. Media and cultural studies are increasingly stirred by calls for ‘de-Westernization’, alongside long-standing critiques of imperialism and colonialism, also to de-colonize the academy. For the foreseeable post-pandemic future, the shift away from Chinese sources is likely to be small, partial and manageable. As a pragmatic democrat, President-elect Biden promises to re-enact some of the most endearing principles in promoting women’s health and development and reproductive health and social justice.
