Khawaja book focuses on vision of one global humanity
In his recent book, One Humanity and the Remaking of Global
Peace, Security and Conflict Resolution (Lambert Academic Publishing),
author Mahboob A. Khawaja ’81 MA (PSc)/’00 PhD (SSc) offers a 21st-century
vision of global harmony, transcending what he terms “obsolete systems of
global governance, peace, security and conflict resolution.”
The book draws on
critical analyses of contemporary global crises and historic reasoning, in order
to articulate innovations and tools for worldwide political change. He portrays
global leaders as largely egoistic and indifferent to conditions, such as wars
and global warming, that threaten human existence and survival on the planet. He
offers a vision of One Global Humanity – a revulsion against the contemporary
standardized norms of global politics of thinking, prioritizing instead reason
and peaceful co-existence as the core value for global governance and politics.
Khawaja specializes in
international relations, global security, and peace and conflict resolution,
with specific interests in Islamic-Western comparative cultures and
civilizations. He is vice president, academic and strategic planning, for Ummah
Global Planning and Development, Research and Future-Making; a former dean of
the College of Social Sciences, KIMEP University, in Kazakhstan; and author of
several publications on topics related to the new book.
