Governance without a state? : policies and politics in areas of limited statehood( )

10 editions published between 2011 and 2013 in English and held by 1,031 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Governance discourse in development agencies and the social sciences remains centered on an ""ideal type"" of modern statehood, one that exhibits full internal and external sovereignty and a legitimate monopoly on the use of force. Yet modern statehood remains an anomaly, both historically and in the contemporary international system, while the condition of ""limited statehood, "" wherein countries lack the capacity to implement central decisions and monopolize force, is the norm. Limited statehood, argue the authors in this provocative collection, is in fact a fundamental form of governan

Transnational identities : becoming European in the EU by Richard K Herrmann( )

10 editions published between 2004 and 2010 in English and held by 815 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This original work explores the increasingly important phenomenon of the formation of transnational identity. Considering the ongoing relevance of the European Union, the contributors ask a series of intriguing questions: Is a European identity possible? How are the various types of European identity formed and maintained? How are these identities linked to the process of European integration? Combining a rich array of theoretical and methodological perspectives, distinguished scholars examine both the theoretical understanding of why and how transnational identities form and new empirical evi
Bringing transnational relations back in : non-state actors, domestic structures, and international institutions by Thomas Risse( Book )

30 editions published between 1995 and 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 636 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Taking a fresh look at the impact of non-state actors on world politics and on the foreign policies of states, this book revives the debate on transnational relations which started in the 1970s. This debate withered away in the face of state-centered approaches, but this book's new approach emphasizes the interaction of states and transnational actors, arguing that domestic structures of the state as well as international institutions mediate the policy influence of transnational actors. Empirical chapters examine the European Economic and Monetary Union, US-Japanese transnational relations, multinational corporations in East Asia, Soviet and Russian security policy, democratization in Eastern Europe, and ivory management in Africa. The book concludes with chapters discussing the theoretical implications of the findings in the empirical studies
Transforming Europe : Europeanization and domestic change( Book )

11 editions published between 2001 and 2012 in English and held by 533 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Does the European Union change the domestic politics and institutions of its member states? This study traces the effects of Europeanization and the impact of the EU on national court systems, territorial politics, societal networks, public discourse, identity and citizenship norms. The European Union, the authors find, does indeed make a difference - even in Germany, France and the UK. In many cases, EU rules and regulations incompatible with domestic institutions have created pressure for national governments to adapt. This volume examines the conditions under which this "adaptational pressure" has led to institutional change in the member states
International relations theory and the end of the Cold War by Richard Ned Lebow( Book )

20 editions published between 1995 and 2001 in English and held by 525 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Cooperation among democracies : the European influence on U.S. foreign policy by Thomas Risse( Book )

15 editions published between 1995 and 1997 in English and held by 513 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In exploring the special nature of alliances among democracies, Thomas Risse-Kappen argues that the West European (and Canadian) allies exerted greater influence on American foreign policy during the Cold War than most analysts assume. In so doing he challenges traditional alliance theories that emphasize strategic interactions and power-based bargaining among states that are also economic rivals. For a better understanding of the transatlantic relationship, the author proposes turning to liberal theories of international affairs. Liberal democracies, Risse-Kappen believes, are inherently likely to form the sort of "pacific federations" described by Immanuel Kant (or "pluralistic security communities" in Karl W. Deutsch's sense) that the NATO alliances of the postwar period so strikingly resemble. Through detailed case studies, Risse-Kappen shows that the Europeans affected security decisions concerning vital U.S. interest during the 1950-1953 Korean war, the 1958-1963 test ban negotiations, and the 1962 Cuban missile crisis - all during a span of time in which the U.S. enjoyed undisputed economic and military supremacy in the alliance. He situates these case studies within a theoretical framework demonstrating that the European influence on decision-making processes in Washington worked through three mechanisms: norms prescribing timely consultations among the allies, use of domestic pressures for leverage in transatlantic interactions, and transnational and transgovernmental coalitions among societal and bureaucratic actors. The book's findings have important implications for the post-Cold War era, suggesting that the transatlantic security community is likely to survive the end of the Soviet threat
The persistent power of human rights : from commitment to compliance by Thomas Risse( Book )

19 editions published in 2013 in English and German and held by 366 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Power of Human Rights (published in 1999) was an innovative and influential contribution to the study of international human rights. At its centre was a 'spiral model' of human rights change which described the various socialisation processes through which international norms were internalised into the domestic practices of various authoritarian states during the Cold War years. The Persistent Power of Human Rights builds on these insights, extending its reach and analysis. It updates our understanding of the various casual mechanisms and conditions which produce behavioural compliance, and expands the range of rights-violating actors examined to include democratic and authoritarian Great Powers, corporations, guerilla groups and private actors. Using a unique blend of quantitative and qualitative research and theory, this book yields not only important new academic insights but also a host of useful lessons for policymakers and practitioners"--Back cover
Promoting democracy and the rule of law : American and European strategies by A MAGEN( Book )

19 editions published between 2009 and 2013 in English and held by 319 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Are Americans and Europeans united or divided over the goal of promoting democracy and the rule of law around the globe? What strategies and instruments do they wield in Africa, Asia, Eastern Europe, Latin America, and the Middle East in an effort to achieve these goals? And what do their successes and failures reveal both about the challenge of encouraging the spread of freedom and the nature of American and European foreign policies in the twenty-first century? These are some of the pressing questions tackled in this volume by a distinguished group of analysts from both sides of the Atlantic. Contrary to conventional wisdom, the authors demonstrate in detail that the US and the EU share many common features in their democracy promotion strategies, including shared 'double standards'. This is a much anticipated study - one that provides the first systematic, comparative analysis of American and European efforts to transform governance in developing countries."--Jacket

6 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 268 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

European public spheres : politics is back( Book )

14 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 210 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The euro crisis has led to an unprecedented Europeanization and politicization of public spheres across the continent. In this volume, leading scholars make two claims. First, they suggest that transnational cross-border communication in Europe has been encouraged through the gradual Europeanization of national as well as issue-specific public spheres. Second, the politicization of European affairs - at the European Union (EU) level and in the domestic politics of member states - is inevitable and here to stay. Europeanized public spheres, whether elite media, mass media, or social media such as the internet, provide the arenas in which the politicization of European and EU issues takes place. European Public Spheres explores the history of these developments, the nature of politicization in the public spheres as well as its likely consequences, and the normative implications for European public life"--
The Oxford handbook of comparative regionalism by Tanja A Börzel( Book )

13 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 204 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Oxford Handbook of Comparative Regionalism - the first of its kind - offers a systematic and wide-ranging survey of the scholarship on regionalism, regionalization, and regional governance. Unpacking the major debates, leading authors of the field synthesize the state of the art, provide a guide to the comparative study of regionalism, and identify future avenues of research. Twenty-seven chapters review the theoretical and empirical scholarship with regard to the emergence of regionalism, the institutional design of regional organizations and issue-specific governance, as well as the effects of regionalism and its relationship with processes of regionalization. The authors explore theories of cooperation, integration, and diffusion explaining the rise and the different forms of regionalism. The handbook also discusses the state of the art on the world regions: North America, Latin America, Europe, Eurasia, Asia, North Africa and the Middle East, and Sub-Saharan Africa. Various chapters survey the literature on regional governance in major issue areas such as security and peace, trade and finance, environment, migration, social and gender policies, as well as democracy and human rights. Finally, the handbook engages in cross-regional comparisons with regard to institutional design, dispute settlement, identities and communities, legitimacy and democracy, as well as inter- and transregionalism.--
The Oxford handbook of governance and limited statehood by Thomas Risse( Book )

8 editions published in 2018 in English and German and held by 117 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Handbook gives a comprehensive picture of the varieties of governance in areas of limited statehood from interdisciplinary perspectives including political science, geography, history, law, and economics. Twenty-nine chapters review the academic scholarship and explore the conditions of effective and legitimate governance in areas of limited statehood, as well as its implications for world politics in the twenty-first century. The authors examine theoretical and methodological approaches as well as historical and spatial dimensions of areas of limited statehood, and deal with the various governors as well as their modes of governance. They cover a variety of issue areas and explore the implications for the international legal order, for normative theory, and for policies toward areas of limited statehood."--Page 4 of cover
