The emergence of a growing number of global issues—global public goods and bads—has started to erode the distinction between domestic and foreign affairs. Discusses three issues that highlight the changing constellation of politics. First, it examines how globalization is altering state politics and policy‐making. Then, it explores the implications of these political transformations for the notion of a political community. Finally, it discusses the policy choices available and required to govern, democratize, and civilize globalization more effectively than at present.
