ABSTRACT

This book has discerned two different but complementary developments in the multipolarization of global politics: the bankruptcy of hegemonic global governance under the crisis of Northern capitalism; and the intensification of South–South cooperation in a post-hegemonic direction. The preceding chapters have shed light on the historical, political-economic, and geopolitical contexts in which these developments have taken shape, based on the cases of Europe, Latin America, Eurasia, and Africa.
