Rethinking empowerment gender and development in a global/local world ( )
5 editions published between 2002 and 2006 in English and held by 645 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Extrait du résumé : "Rethinking empowerment looks at the changing role of women in developing countries and rejects the established notion that empowerment is best understood and pursued at a local level. It calls for a new approach, one that adopts a more nuanced, feminist interpretation of power and empowerment and recognises that local empowerment is always embedded in regional, national and global contexts. It must both pay attention to institutionnal structures and politics and acknowledge that empowerment is both a process and an outcome. Moreover, the book warns that an obsession with measurement rather than process can undermine efforts to foster transformative and empowering outcomes. It concludes that power must be restored as the centrepiece of empowerment. Only then will the term and its advacates provide meaningful ammunition for dealing with the challenges of an increasingly unequal, and often sexist, global/local world."
Development issues in global governance public-private partnerships and market multilateralism by Benedicte Bull ( )
3 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 448 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In order to address key world issues and problems such as health, education, labour rights and water, multilateral organizations, specifically the United Nations organizations and the World Bank, are increasingly working with private actors, including for-profit companies and corporations; business organizations and private foundations. Critics have claimed that increased corporate involvement threatens the legtimacy of multilateral organisations and this book assesses this claim, while providing a comprehensive cross-sector study of public-private partnerships (PPP) and detailed case studies."--BOOK JACKET

Democratisation, governance and regionalism in East and Southeast Asia a comparative study by Ian Marsh ( )
2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 385 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This new collection of essays compares the development of central institutions of governance in the emerging democracies of East and South East Asia. The seven key countries covered are: Taiwan, Korea, Thailand, Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia and the Philippines. Save for Singapore and Malaysia, all have democratized over the past decade. Because of its constitutive implications for citizen identities, democratisation is arguably of even greater potential significance than the economic take-off that preceded it. But there are distinctive features that give the experience of these seven states especial relevance. First, unlike analogous western patterns, democratic transitions in Asia have been top-down in character. Second, the implementation of basic democratic forms was highly compressed in time. Third there were (and are), in most countries, no major ideological or programmatic cleavages. Thus the bases around which contending political forces might organise are not immediately clear. This may affect the outlook for partisanship and mobilisation. There has been no synoptic, comparative study of these developments on a region-wide scale. This book fills the gap extremely well

Regionalisation and global governance : the taming of globalisation? by Andrew Fenton Cooper ( Book )
1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 147 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The relationship between global governance and regionalisation is fraught with ambiguity. Understanding regionalisation in this context requires an understanding of its relationship, and reactive condition, with both the constellations of global governance and globalisation." "The expert and multi-disciplinary editors and contributors survey the context as well as the general character of these projects, together with their links as both parallel mediating mechanisms and distinctive choices for interjecting governance into globalisation. Examining these projects in tandem amplifies their importance and enables the authors to tease out coincidental as well as alternative possibilities in policy direction." "This book will be of interest to students and scholars of international relations, area studies, international economics, international political economy, political science, public administration and development studies."--Jacket

The new agenda for international relations : from polarization to globalization in world politics by Stephanie Lawson ( Book )
4 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
There have been significant political eras which have shaped not only the structure of world politics but the way in which it has been studied. The geopolitical and ideological contours of the Cold War period, for example, had an impact on almost every aspect of world politics and the study of international relations for around 45 years. This book argues that, just as the collapse of the Soviet Union in the period following the fall of the Berlin Wall signalled the end of strategic polarization, it also marked the apparent end of a particular form of polarized debate around politica
