We can represent their mutual interaction in the following way: 52 Figure 1: Elements of Emerging Global Governance This ontology should be understood as a way of developing multilevel analyses of past and present (as well as potentially future) forms assumed by global governance.  The global governance concept stands beside these other change­oriented concepts in aiding a more comprehensive understanding of global change.  While each of the initial two approaches identifies an important Page 19 dimension, the third approach of a political economy of forms of global governance is, we believe, most promising from the standpoint of a comprehensive view of global change.
