The French challenge : adapting to globalization by Philip H Gordon( )

14 editions published between 2001 and 2004 in English and held by 1,211 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The authors also examine the relationship between trade, culture, and identity and explain why globalization has rendered the three inseparable. They show how globalization is contributing to the restructuring of the traditional French political spectrum and blurring the traditional differences between Left and Right. Finally, they explore France's effort to tame globalization - maitriser la mondialisation - and the possible consequences and lessons of the French stance for the rest of the world."--Jacket
Making history : European integration and institutional change at fifty( )

11 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 1,090 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The contributors to this volume, all leading specialists in the field of EU studies, examine the trajectory of the EU and draw on the theoretical tools of historical institutionalism to assess the central political challenges facing the EU
Trading voices : the European Union in international commercial negotiations by Sophie Meunier( Book )

21 editions published between 2005 and 2007 in English and French and held by 442 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Through analysis of transatlantic commercial negotiations over agriculture, public procurement, and civil aviation, Trading Voices explores the politics of international trade bargaining. It also addresses the salient political question of whether efficiency at negotiating comes at the expense of democratic legitimacy. Finally, this book looks at how the EU, with its recent enlargement and proposed constitution, might become an even more formidable rival to the United States in shaping globalization."--Jacket
Developments in French politics 5 by Alistair Cole( Book )

9 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 100 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

François Hollande's victory in the 2012 presidential election stood as an important moment in French politics. As the first left-wing president to be elected in almost 20 years, his election appeared to mark a shift away from the right and a return to 'normal' politics in France. Taking stock of both the Sarkozy years and the Hollande presidency, Developments in French Politics 5 provides state-of-the-art coverage of current trends, issues and debates. In a new set of specially commissioned chapters, leading French and Anglo-American experts examine all aspects of the French political system - from central institutions and organizations through to the key policies and issues. Two key themes run through the volume: the first is whether the discourse of reform - initiated by Sarkozy - has been translated into tangible change. The second theme explores to what extent it is possible to talk of French 'exceptionalism' - a uniquely French path to identity and globalization. Assuming no prior knowledge, this book provides wide-ranging and cutting-edge analysis of the factors influencing contemporary French politics
Europe and the management of globalization by Wade Jacoby( Book )

9 editions published between 2010 and 2013 in English and held by 65 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

European politicians often speak of their efforts to 'manage globalization.' At one level, this is merely a rhetorical device to make globalization more palatable to citizens and prove that policy-makers are still firmly in control of their country' s fate. This volume argues that the advocacy of managed globalization goes beyond rhetoric and actually has been a primary driver of major European Union (EU) policies in the past twenty years. The EU has indeed tried to manage globalization through the use of five
Le nouveau défi français : la France face à la mondialisation by Philip H Gordon( Book )

The politics of representation in the global age : identification, mobilization, and adjudication( )

4 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 43 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"How has the process of political representation changed in the era of globalization? The representation of interests is at the heart of democracy, but how is it that some interests secure a strong voice, while others do not? While each person has multiple interests linked to different dimensions of his or her identity, much of the existing academic literature assumes that interests are given prior to politics by a person's socioeconomic, institutional, or cultural situation. This book mounts a radical challenge to this view, arguing that interests are actively forged through processes of politics. The book develops an analytic framework for understanding how representation takes place - based on processes of identification, mobilization, and adjudication - and explores how these processes have evolved over time. Through a wide variety of case studies, the chapters explore how actors identify their interests, mobilize them into action, and resolve conflicts among them"--
Speaking with a single voice : the EU as an effective actor in global governance?( Book )

7 editions published between 2014 and 2017 in English and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Under what conditions does the internal cohesiveness of the European Union determine its external effectiveness on the world stage? This book asks this question, investigating the frequent political assumption that the more cohesive the EU presents itself to the world, the more effective it is in achieving its goals. Contributions to this book explore this theory from a range of perspectives, from trade to foreign policy, and highlight complex patterns between internal cohesiveness and external effectiveness. These are simplified into three possible configurations: internal cohesiveness has a positive impact on external effectiveness; internal cohesiveness has no impact on external effectiveness; and internal cohesiveness has a negative impact on external effectiveness. The international context in which the EU operates, which includes the bargaining configuration and the policy arena, functions as an intervening variable that helps us to explain variation in these causal links. The book also launches a research agenda aimed at explaining these patterns more systematically and determining the marginal impact of cohesiveness on effectiveness
The state of the European Union by Sophie Meunier( Book )

8 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Fifty years ago, the leaders of six European states signed the Treaty of Rome, creating the European Economic Community and launching the process of European integration. From that starting point evolved today's European Union (EU), the most successful example of institutionalized political cooperation in history. The EU now encompasses a much broader array of responsibilities than originally planned, its membership has widened to 25 countries, and its legislation and jurisprudence has come to supersede national law. Contestation has accompanied success, however, and the intense debate in many European countries over the EU Constitution throughout the course of 2005 revealed deep divisions between and within European countries around issues such as EU institutions, the elusive European identity, a European economic malaise, and the role of the EU as a world power. Was the constitutional crisis a turning point for European integration? This volume argues that the EU today may be at a crossroads--not because of the failed referenda but rather because of the unresolved tensions in European governance not banished with the referenda's defeat. Meunier and McNamara's collection is the first to comprehensively examine these challenging issues using the tools of historical institutionalism to analyze the past and future political and institutional trajectory of the European Union across a wide variety of policy areas. Together, the volume's authors provide a remarkably coherent theoretical approach to the key questions facing Europe, drawing a portrait of the EU today that reveals a robust, but not invulnerable, set of institutions and practices

L'Europe qui se fait : regards croisés sur un parcours inachevé by Gérard Boismenu( )

1 edition published in 2013 in French and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Entité à la fois réalisée et en devenir, l’Europe n’est pas issue d’un processus unique et linéaire, mais la résultante d’évolutions simultanées dont les enjeux, changeants, ne sont pas concordants a priori. Selon que l’on évoque l’efficacité économique ou le progrès social, la politique internationale ou la défense, la participation démocratique, l’union sociale ou l’expression des identités, le parcours complexe de la construction européenne s’éclaire différemment. La mise en commun de ces points de vue divers, voire divergents, est une façon efficace pour l’observateur de se rapprocher de la réalité. Et dans sa complexité même, l’Union européenne est une réalité économique, sociale, politique et culturelle du premier intérêt, non seulement en soi, mais parce qu’elle condense une série de phénomènes, de choix et de défis qui s’imposent également à l’ensemble des pays développés. Solidement référencé, le présent ouvrage est un point d’étape multidisciplinaire sur la construction européenne. Il rassemble les contributions de chercheurs canadiens et européens qui soulignent à leur manière le 50e anniversaire du Traité de Rome. Le lecteur, spécialiste ou non, trouvera ici un outil unique pour cerner les nouveaux contours d’un continent en mutation

Between national sovereignty and international power : what external voice for the euro? by Kathleen R McNamara( )

3 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Does the creation of the euro imply that the European Union is now speaking with one voice in international monetary matters? Is the EU therefore likely to challenge the hegemony of the United States on the world stage, at least in the realm of international financial diplomacy? This article analyses the current state of external representation of the common currency and asks why the issue of the euro's single voice has not yet been resolved. Comparing other areas of common policy-making that have an external dimension, such as trade, the authors explore the specificities of monetary and financial affairs that make the conflict between national sovereignty and international efficiency so difficult to settle

Transatlantic economic relations : "two heads are better than one!" : workshop( )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This workshop has emphasized the importance of establishing a comprehensive transatlantic economic partnership in which the European Parliament and the United States Congress would play important roles. The purpose of this summary is to explain how that argument developed over the course of the day. Rather than follow the progression of the proceedings, however, the summary builds on a five-part thematic structure. The first part emphasizes why participants believed that a comprehensive economic partnership is important. The second looks at the alternatives. The third sets out the characteristics such a partnership should have. The fourth identifies the most important participants. And the fifth concludes with a sense of urgency both for the project and for the involvement of the European Parliament and the United States Congress as principal participants
