Abstract: This article presents transdisciplinary approaches to urgent questions in our globalised world society. Transdisciplinary research, especially foresight includes political, cultural, developmental, historic, economic and legal aspects. The present historic analysis draws attention to the issue of the global governance of science, considered here to be of growing importance for the present world development and strategic foresight. Introducing the notions of the global knowledge world and the knowledge society, the author presents the vision of the management of science as an international task and one of the development goals. He analyses the relationship of science and bureaucracy, establishing a kind of systematisation for the decision-making process related to science, most importantly of UN and United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization, and of a non-governmental character. In conclusion, some ideas are expressed and proposals given as to how, in the author's opinion, the goal of the global governance of science can be fostered.
