The End of the Minervian Moment


The general thesis of this book is based on three powerful ideas. The first is that during a decade from 1995 to 2005 multilateralism grew into new areas such as the environment, human security, and cultural diversity. The second, which follows from the first, is that this multilateralization of international regulation occurred against the will and consent of certain major powers, including in particular the United States. Finally, the third is to attribute credit for this reinvigorated multilateralism to an informal coalition of states or groups of states such as Canada, Japan, and the European Union, which can be labeled Minervian actors.
