European integration and supranational governance by Wayne Sandholtz( Book )
27 editions published between 1998 and 2004 in 3 languages and held by 448 libraries worldwide
The European Union began in 1957 as a treaty among six nations but today constitutes a supranational polity - one that creates rules that are binding on its 15 member countries and their citizens. This study confronts some of the most enduring questions posed by the remarkable evolution of the EU: why does policy-making sometimes migrate from the member states to the European Union?; and why has integration proceeded more rapidly in some policy domains than in others? A distinguished team of scholars lead by Wayne Sandholtz and Alec Stone Sweet offers a fresh theory and propositions on the development of the EU. Combining broad data and probing case studies, the volume finds solid support for these propositions in a variety of policy domains. The theoretical approach and empirical analyses together constitute a significant challenge to approaches that see the EU as a straightforward product of member-state interests, power, and bargaining. This volume demonstrates that a nascent transnational society and supranational institutions have played decisive roles in constructing the European Union
The Highest stakes : the economic foundations of the next security system by Berkeley Roundtable on the International Economy( Book )
14 editions published between 1992 and 1993 in English and held by 430 libraries worldwide
Will markets, investment, and technology--rather than tanks and missiles--be the bargaining chips in the new world order? When politics catches up with the global whirlwind of shifting economic capabilities, the international system will look very different than it does today. This book explores how the momentous dislocations of economic power in the world--the burgeoning might of Asia, the unification of Europe, the relative decline of the United States--will reshape global security issues. The authors believe that the United States is especially unprepared for a 21st century in which the control of markets and technology is a principal battleground. They demonstrate how America's loss of industrial leadership is slowly but surely eroding its influence abroad, and how America will soon have to accept the kinds of constraints it has been so accustomed to imposing on others. Representing over six years of research by seven scholars, this timely analysis also goes beyond the discussion of America's decline to examine how the emergence of regional trading blocs may carve out new international security arrangements. The authors warn that a natural extension of the postwar security system is only one possibility. The emerging distribution of economic capabilities suggests at least two others, each of which would reconceive the very character of security, redefine the international power game, and re-situate the players
The institutionalization of Europe by Alec Stone Sweet( Book )
19 editions published between 2001 and 2004 in English and held by 398 libraries worldwide
This book provides an account of the development of the EU, from a relatively specialised organ of economic cooperation in the 1960s to the complex, quasi-federal entity that today governs an increasingly diverse set of policy domains

High-Tech Europe : the politics of international cooperation by Wayne Sandholtz( Book )

International norms and cycles of change by Wayne Sandholtz( Book )
18 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 199 libraries worldwide
"In [book title], [authors] present their "cycle theory," in which norm change is continual, a product of the constant interplay among rules, behavior, and disputes. While testing this cycle theory against ten cases, the authors also argue that interanational norms have been shaped by two main currents: sovereignty rules and liberal rules."--Book jacket
Choosing union : monetary politics and Maastricht by Wayne Sandholtz( Article )
4 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 6 libraries worldwide
This article is concerned with the recent debate on political development in Hong Kong after the announcement of the constitutional reform package by the new governor of Hong Kong, Chris Patten. The package, which outlines a series of political reforms, has triggered heated debate among Hong Kong citizens, political groups, the business community, professionals, and the British and mainland Chinese governments. These political actors are divided over the future of Hong Kong, which now hinges on the principles of democracy and convergence. The reform package proposed by Governor Patten touches directly on these two salient principles. Rather than producing a harmonious effect on Hong Kong's political development, the constitutional reform package has exacerbated political antagonisms and polarized the conflicts among political actors. Antagonism between Hong Kong citizens and mainland China has led to mutual distrust and alienation
Institutions and collective action : the new telecommunications in Western Europe by Wayne Sandholtz( Article )
2 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 4 libraries worldwide
The telecommunications landscape in Europe has changed dramatically over recent years. The author argues that the Commission of the European Communities played the leading role in promoting collective European action. The first section analyses the process of adaptation in national governments and argues that technological and market changes led to policy adaptation and the redefinition of national interests. The second section discusses international leadership and the conditions under which international institutions can be the source of it. The third section analyses the case of collective action for telecommunications reform in Western Europe. The author concludes that telecommunications are in the midst of radical changes following moves by the Commission.--SCAD summary

European integration, nationalism and European identity by Neil Fligstein( file )
2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 4 libraries worldwide
"Early theorists of European integration speculated that economic integration would lead to political integration and a European identity. A European identity has not displaced national identities in the EU, but, for a significant share of EU citizens, a European identity exists alongside a national identity. At the same time, political parties asserting more traditional nationalist identities and policies have directed their dissatisfaction against immigrants, foreigners and, sometimes, the EU. Those who participate in "Europe" are more likely to develop a European identity, while those whose economic and social horizons are essentially local are more likely to assert nationalist identities. It is argued in this article that the issue of European and national identity plays a heightened role in European politics, particularly in the economic crisis of 2007-11. The resolution of that crisis, which may result in increased European political co-operation, will have to take into account highly salient national identities that have so far resisted such co-operation."--Editor

1992 : recasting the European bargain by Wayne Sandholtz( Article )
1 edition published in 1989 in English and held by 3 libraries worldwide
An alternative approach to analysing 1992, in terms of "elite bargains" formulated in response to international structural change and the Commission's policy entrepreneurship. The origins of the 1992 movement and its constituent bargains are examined in this context, and the crucial bargains that are not formally part of the Single Market programme, but that will help to shape its outcomes, are discussed.--SCAD summary
International integration and national corruption ( file )
1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 3 libraries worldwide
"We argue that greater degrees of international integration lead to lower levels of corruption, which we define as the misuse of public office for private gain. We theorize that international factors affect a country's level of corruption through two principal channels. One acts through economic incentives, altering for various actors the costs and benefits of engaging in corrupt acts. The second mode is normative. Prevailing norms in international society delegitimate and stigmatize corruption. Countries that are more integrated into international society are more exposed to economic and normative pressures against corruption. We therefore test the following hypothesis: the more a country is tied into international networks of exchange, communication, and organization, the lower its level of corruption is likely to be. The analysis of data from approximately 150 countries strongly confirms our expectation."--Editor

2 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 3 libraries worldwide
Money troubles : Europe's rough road to monetary union ( Article )
1 edition published in 1996 in English and held by 3 libraries worldwide
The turmoil that engulfed the European monetary system in 1992 and 1993 extinguished the sense of inevitability that the project for economic and monetary union had acquired. The exchange rate crisis led many to conclude that monetary union had been derailed once and for all. This article argues, in contrast, that the monetary crisis did not prove that monetary union was undesired or unworkable. The travails of the exchange rate mechanism did not undo the interests that originally drove the economic and monetary union project or erase the gains it would bring to some member states. The crisis did, however, highlight the formidable obstacles to achieving monetary union in Europe. The article examines four interpretations of the 1992-93 crisis in the European monetary system, focusing especially on the failure to agree on a co-ordinated realignment that might have avoided the turmoil
European integration and supranational governance ( Article )
1 edition published in 1997 in English and held by 3 libraries worldwide
In this article the authors argue that European integration is provoked and sustained by the development of causal connections between three factors: transnational exchange, supranational organisation, and European Community rule-making. They explain the transition, in any given policy sector, from national to intergovernmental to supranational governance, in two ways. First, cross-border transactions and communications generate a social demand for EC rules and regulation, which supranational organisations work to supply. Second, once EC rules are in place, a process of institutionalisation ensues, and this process provokes further integration.--SCAD summary
