Abstract:

"While powerful corporations often race to the bottom in setting regulatory standards, NGOs also often prevail in ratcheting up regulatory standards. In showing how, Global Business Regulation is a guidebook for how individuals and smaller organisations can prevail over more influential corporations in the world system." "Based on interviews with 500 international leaders in business and government, this book examines the role played by global institutions such as the World Trade Organization, World Health Organization, the OECD, IMF, Moodys and the World Bank, as well as various NGOs and significant individuals. Utilising 'micro - macro' theory, Braithwaite and Drahos make a landmark contribution to the theory of globalization by drawing the links between key mechanisms, actors and principles. The authors show how active world citizenship can have practical meaning. They argue that effective and decent global regulation depends on the determination of individuals to engage with powerful agendas and decision-making bodies that would otherwise be dominated by concentrated economic interests."--Jacket.
