A. Knight and A. I. Maximenko and relevant function. Yet, such material resource transfer is not a formula for development and should not be considered as such. The United Nations’ main role in promoting sustainable development involves its forum function, and its associated roles in standard-setting, norm-creation and promotion, and facilitating discourse in the ever-evolving global value dialectic. That global debate among culturally diverse peoples over value clarification is an essential element of creating new models for sustainable development that go beyond the sloganizing of the past.

The notion may not seem to be problematic in the context of advanced industrial societies, where associational-based interest groups play a major role in processes of governance. Yet in vast areas of the world, associational interest groups are insignificant. More often in vast areas of Africa, Asia and to a lesser extent in Latin America non-associational groupings (ethnic groups, religious groups, kinship groupings) and institutional groups, such as political parties, armies, churches, governmental bureaucracies and similar identity groupings serve important roles in governance processes – aggregating and articulating interests, establishing norms, and implementing programmes/projects.

Central to this argument are the observations that: within the international political economy, there is an obvious breakdown of the Fordist–Keynesian model of national political economies as a result of the globalization of monetary and production relations; the advent of transnational ‘threats’ (such as environmental degradation, drug trafficking, AIDS, refugee flows and interethnic conflict) has penetrated our thinking about ‘security’ and is causing 14 R. A. Coate, W. A. Knight and A. I. Maximenko us to rethink notions such as sovereignty and boundary lines; the problems of migration, refugee flows and internally displaced persons are forcing us to examine the traditional container metaphor which, during the height of modernity, created clear distinctions between ‘inside–outside’ and ‘us’ versus ‘them’; an increase in the number of intra-state conflicts that spill over into threats to regional and sometimes international security has resulted in a relaxation of some of the rules and conventions against UN interference in the internal affairs of states; and, finally, the collapse of some states and the inability of others to address pressing problems and demands of their civil societies have led, in part, to a renegotiating of the relationship between states and civil societies and to a reconfiguration of their respective roles in national, regional and global governance.
