Readers' Guide Comment on “world’s cooperative architecture”
The ‘world’s cooperative architecture’ is surrounded by conflicts, some of which are clearly violent, some of which are subtly violent.

This is particularly striking as confrontational nationalism, human rights struggles, environmental problems, and market competitiveness are significant global conflict issues. This omission leaves WEF with a conceptual hole: what should be done if firms, states, or civil society organizations simply don't share WEF's views about the legitimacy or moral direction of a particular outcome resulting from the new ‘geometry of cooperation’?
