Perspectives regarding the Institutions of the Global Order of Civilizations: some notes about the Global Mediator of Civilizations
Keywords:Global Mediator of Civilizations (GMC), global order of civilizations, inter-civilizational system, new global gladiators, Magna Charta of Civilizations
Our paper is trying to explore the passage of the contemporary international order to what we call here a ”global order of civilizations”, by taking into account the new political quality of ”civilizations” to become autonomous, original political actors on the future global stage. As introductory section, we shall make briefly references to the present juridical regime offered by the contemporary legislation regarding civilisations and cultural heritage. Cultural obligations of UN states increasingly constitute a trans-national regime, as human rights kind of juridical regime, surpassing the boundaries of the national politics and the ordinary competences of the states. The new ”global order of civilizations” is also imposing, in our view, a sort of basic body of legislation, specific and distinct from the present legal level regarding civilizations (a kind of Magna Charta of Civilizations). We shall have in mind, also, the shape that this future order can have (hierarchical or heterarchical pattern; an atomist, schizoid, or an open order). This new order can also be seen as a complex network of actors, which cannot be limited to the state order, embracing a variety authority levels and actors not regulated by today legislation (based on nation-states and international intergovernmental organizations). Finally, within the third section, we shall approach briefly some aspects related to the “Global Mediator of Civilizations”, a new institution proposed here to work within this new type of order.
