The article examines the drive for 'global governance' led by the US, and powerful G8 countries. Though under the aegis of the United Nations (UN) several international conferences have been held over global security, environmental protection, human rights, development, gender empowerment, natural resources management, and climate change, and similar varied topics, most international conventions have been stymied by American refusal to ratify agreements. Following the US' military actions after 9/11, and its insistence on unipolar dominance of the world, the European Union (EU) countries have become even more alarmed, and are using their commercial power to create another centre of global power. There is little cooperation between these two powerful blocs. There can be little real global governance without a measure of global equity in this era, which sees a continuation of neocolonialism in the guise of globalisation.
