In view of geographical conditions, state institutions will differ profoundly according to whether the state’s natural resources are minerals, forests, arid land, arable soil, mountains, coasts, or none of the above.

The organisational dimension was taken as the basis for this book. Hence, the analysis progresses from institutions of societal self-organisation to the state and from there onto international institutions. The geographical dimension will be reflected (but of course not fully covered) on each of these levels. It does not, however, suffice to show that there is a multitude of institutions acting on global change. Whilst post-modernist thought may halt in amazement at the number of institutions, the challenge is to explore whether there are patterns of interaction between institutional levels, allowing us to speak of a structured whole.
