Example text

The large number of decision entities complicates the usual calculus of the pursuit of power and wealth at all levels. The global system as a whole is increasingly vulnerable to a broad range of hazards created by human activities. In this chapter we detail the foundations for the gradual convergence of cyberspace and sustainability—in substantive as well as policy terms—and the nature of the cyberpolitics surrounding this convergence. Earlier, in chapter 4, we pointed to the need for new knowledge focusing on the domain of sustainable development.

Chapter 8 shows the increasing density of decision-making entities worldwide. International Interactions While the creation of cyberspace is the result of the activities of a large number of individuals (the first image) operating within the rules of the state (the second image), the omnipresence and utilization of cyberspace are cross-national in scale and scope (the third image), and cyber activity has become a major feature of interaction at all levels of analysis in international relations.

An important question is whether the observed patterns of cooperation and collaboration are “new,” that is, distinctive to cyberspace, or alternatively are manifestations of the usual modes of international collaboration. Chapter 8 concentrates on the global system, the fourth image in international relations. The global system is the overarching domain that encompasses the individual, the state, and the international system and all combinations of actors and entities, actions, and behaviors within and across these levels, as well as all of their environmental life-supporting properties.
