Robert W. Cox challenged Samuel Huntington’s “Clash of Civilisations” narrative, arguing for a focus on inter-civilizational dialogue instead of “clash”. Cox aimed to recast global governance, and future world order, toward a more multi-polar and multilateral world, based on shared norms between civilizations. The core of the research agenda is on identifying shared inter-civilizational norms, values, and principles, while also accounting for, and managing sources of conflict between civilizations and nations. The roots of Cox’s thesis on civilizations was a research programme on multilateralism and the United Nations system (MUNS), sponsored by the United Nations University (UNU), that ran from 1991 to 1995. The programme took a broad view of multilateralism, and asked what entities – states and other – would constitute the multilateralism of the future. The MUNS programme aimed to foster a “new”, more inclusive, and diverse multilateralism. In this presentation, Professor Gregory Chin will examine Cox’s concept of “supra-intersubjective understandings” between civilisations as the building blocks for a more multi-polar and multilateral world order, and foundational base for a more negotiated system of global governance between Western and Chinese civilizations.
