Abstract "The international responsibility to protect and norms of international criminal justice are increasingly contested. These conflicts seem to be casting doubt on the possibilities for global governance. Are such liberal norms and rules only accepted in the political West? In order to examine the opportunities of global governance, this report investigates the influence of regional actors on the global order. When do regional security organizations contribute to fragmenting this global order and when do they strengthen it? The study finds that the acceptance of global norms and rules is primarily a matter of procedural justice. When regional actors recognize that they do not have a say in how global norms are implemented in their region, they will tend to reject these norms. The study concludes with recommendations for political practice." (author's abstract)
