Re-emergence of geopolitics and facades of responsibility

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterScientificpeer-review


What does it mean to responsibly organise? In this chapter we suggest that the Global North has largely established this agenda: its content, its policies, and its goals. But this agenda-setting monopoly of the Global North is now being challenged. China is seeking to establish its own rules on what it means to organise responsibly, exemplified by the different interpretations of the role of cutting-edge technology such as artificial intelligence. Consequently, we propose that in the future frameworks such as the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals will require more work on reconciling different interpretations of what responsibility and responsible organising is.
