Power relations in the global economy and politics have undergone a permanent shift since the end of the "short Twentieth Century" (Hobsbawm 1998), with the dominance of the Western countries now dwindling. The fact that these shifts have had dramatic effects on the international system, global regimes, and the performance capacities and legitimacy of global governance is now impossible to ignore. But which regulatory models and political cultures will characterise global society in the 21st century? That is still an open question.

With Global Trends 2013, the Development and Peace Foundation (sef:) and the Institute for Development and Peace (INEF) continue their series of trend analyses in the fields of world orders and peace, world society and development, and global sustainability and crisis prevention, which they launched in 1991. As with previous editions, this standard work is based on a wealth of statistical data and information from a variety of international sources and presents its findings in a clear and accessible format.
