Abstract: The demand for global common goods and services will increasingly challenge international relations. As resources decline and prices escalate, the interdependencies among countries for food, water, energy and migration will become a reality. No country can handle the issues in isolation. How do these changing interdependencies affect the concept of nation and state? Are national interests an inherent obstacle for good stewardship or can we develop a concept of interdependency where states can productively engage and negotiate in this resource constrained world? , The demand for global common goods and services will increasingly challenge international relations.
