[Regime formation and networks: New model of order and forms of interaction pertaining to conflict and responsibility regulation in the context of political control]
Regime and networks are new formulations and institutionalisations of the ultramodern, which can counteract possible fragmentations (on account of a framework displacement of government and society as a result of the processes of denationalisation and globalisation). However, they can also contribute to new governmental and power formulations, and in particular to segmentary hegemonies which one would not necessarily evaluate as pro-social and justice-oriented in numerous political fields. This ambivalence in the realm of political and societal human development is the reason for this study, which scrutinises the formations of regimes and networks in a predominantly democratic-theoretic perspective.
