4 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 218 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This collection examines the political aspects of globalization which may be creating the much-feared 'One World Government'.

Development issues in global governance : public-private partnerships and market multilateralism by Benedicte Bull( Book )

3 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 183 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."--Jacket
The Group of Seven : finance ministries, central banks and global financial governance by Andrew Baker( Book )

2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 160 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We are now in the era of the G8, although the G7 still exists as a grouping for Finance Ministers. Why do G7 finance ministries and central banks co-operate? What are the implications of this co-operation for US power and the abilities of the other six states to exercise leadership? What role do the G7 play in global financial governance? How much authority do they possess and how is that authority exercised? This is the first major monograph on the political economy of G7 finance ministry and central bank co-operation. It argues that to understand the contribution of the G7 to global financial governance it is necessary to locate the process in the context of a wider world financial order comprised of decentralized globalization. It also provides original case study material on the G7's contribution to macroeconomic governance and to debates on the global financial architecture over the last decade. It assesses the G7's role in producing a system of global financial governance based on market supremacy and technocratic trans-governmental consensus and articulates normative criticisms of the G7's exclusivity.; For researchers in the fields of IR/IPE generally, postgraduate students in the field of international organization and global governance, policy makers and financial journalists this is the most extensive analysis of the G7 and the political economy of global financial governance to date
Regionalisation and global governance : the taming of globalisation? by Andrew Fenton Cooper( Book )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 159 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 role of ideas in political analysis : a portrait of contemporary debates by Andreas Gofas( Book )

5 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 104 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Despite the proliferation of ideational accounts in the last decade or so, the debate over the role of ideas remains caught up in a series of disputes over the ontological foundations, epistemological status and practical pay-off of the (re)turn to ideational explanations. It is thus unsurprising that there is still little clarity about just what sort of an approach an ideational approach is and about what it would take to establish the kind of fully-fledged ideational research programme many seem to assume has already been developed. The contributors in this volume address these dilemmas in diverse but engagingly complementary ways. They argue that what plagues most attempts to accord ideas an explanatory role is the persistence of the perennial dualities in political analysis. In aspiring to eschew the current vogue for dualistic polemic, the present volume reveals elements of dualistic thinking in the ideational turn and assesses the impact of the persistence of these perennial dualisms in the attempt to accord ideas an explanatory role
Hong Kong in transition : the handover years by Robert F Ash( Book )

3 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 53 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book presents an overview of critical developments surrounding the handover of Hong Kong to Chinese rule. Well-known commentors from a variety of disciplines examine the issues and events in the years leading up to the transfer of sovereignty, and in the eighteen months that followed. Major dilemmas are addressed in the economic, political legal, social and diplomatic life on the territory, which remain in many cases unresolved and pressing as Hong Kong enters the new century.--Publisher description

Civil society and global poverty : hegemony, inclusivity, legitimacy by Clive Gabay( Book )

4 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Global Call to Action against Poverty (GCAP) is world's largest civil society movement fighting against poverty and inequality, incorporating over 100 affiliated country-level coalitions. It has become a significant global actor and its annual days of mobilisation now attract over 175 million people around the world. - This book seeks to explore GCAP's power and its embodiment of emancipatory change. It develops a framework that assesses its external power as an actor by exploring how power works in it, and the relationship between the two. Gabay demonstrates that GCAP, and actors like it, may transcend some of the obstructions they face in navigating and proposing alternatives to dominant codes and practices of neo-liberal globalisation. Thematically, the book explores GCAP's constitutive powers along three axes: hegemony, inclusion and legitimacy. It draws on a wide range of social and political theory, including Liberalism, Anarchism and postcolonial theory and featuring case studies on Malawi and India

New regionalisms in the global political economy( Book )

2 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Following the financial crisis in large parts of the world at the end of the 20th century, regionalisms in the global political economy have evolved in a number of interesting ways. This book seeks to bring together the leading scholars in the field to provide cutting-edge analyses of contemporary regions and regionalist projects. "New Regionalisms in the Global Economy" provides an integration of theoretical considerations with detailed analyses of a wide range of case studies from across the world - from Africa, Asia, Latin America, Europe and the South Pacific. The chapters systematically consider the relationship between globalization, financial crisis, and regional projects. In combination, the contributions to this volume facilitate the widest possible base within the literature for a truly comparative study of contemporary regionalism

Democratisation, governance, and regionalism in east and southeast Asia : a comparative study( Book )

2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library 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
