  1. Handbook of Research Methodologies and Design in Neuro-entrepreneurship

    Handbook of Research Methodologies and Design in Neuro-entrepreneurship

    Edited by Mellani Day, Mary C. Boardman, Norris F. Krueger
    This Handbook provides an overview of neuroscience-driven research methodologies and how those methodologies might be applied to theory-based research in the nascent field of neuro-entrepreneurship. It presents the current thinking and examples of pioneering work, serves as a reference for those wishing to incorporate these methods into their own research, and provides several helpful discussions on the nature of an answerable question using neuroscience techniques. It includes concrete examples of new ways to conduct research that can shed light onto such areas as decision-making and opportunity recognition, allowing us to ask different, perhaps better, questions than ever before.

  3. Handbook of Competition in Banking and Finance

    Handbook of Competition in Banking and Finance

    Edited by Jacob A. Bikker, Laura Spierdijk
    For academics, regulators and policymaker alike, it is crucial to measure financial sector competition by means of reliable, well-established methods. However, this is easier said than done. The goal of this Handbook is to provide a collection of state-of-the-art chapters to address this issue The book consists of four parts, the first of which discusses the characteristics of various measures of financial-sector competition. The second part includes several empirical studies on the level of, and trends in, financial-sector competition across countries. The third part deals with the spillovers of market power to other sectors and the economy as a whole. Finally, the fourth part considers competition in banking submarkets and subsectors. Learn More

  5. Certification and Collective Marks

    Certification and Collective Marks

    Jeffrey Belson
    Certification and Collective Marks is a thoroughly updated and augmented edition of Certification Marks, first published in 2002. This comprehensive study forms a wide-ranging inquiry, with comparisons of the certification and collective mark systems of the UK, EU and US, whilst also referring to other systems. In addition to the laws and policies impacting ownership and use of these marks, also addressed are their historical development, registration and protection, certifiers’ liability, legal and commercial significance, use in regulatory and technical standardization frameworks, and emergent sui generis forms of certification, namely ecolabels and electronic authentication marks in digital content. This publication is especially timely in light of the advent of the EU certification mark and the controversial EU proposals to extend the Geographical Indications system to include non-agricultural products.

  6. Public Policy in Action

    Public Policy in Action

    Victor Bekkers, Menno Fenger, Peter Scholten
    Approaching policy processes from four perspectives: rationalism, constructivism, institutionalism and the political perspective, these perspectives are then applied to the different stages of the policy process (agenda setting, policy formulation, decision-making, implementation, evaluation and policy change) in a variety of policy domains. The book enables students to develop a better understanding of the multi-faced character of policy processes in today’s society in which rational behaviour, power and interests, frames and attitudes and institutional conditions are competing with each other.

  7. Endogenous Innovation

    Endogenous Innovation

    Cristiano Antonelli
    This ground-breaking new book builds upon the Schumpeterian creative response. The author shows that firms, in out-of-equilibrium conditions, try and react by means of introducing innovations. The success of their reaction is contingent upon their access conditions to knowledge, which are shaped by the system in which they operate. The emergence of new innovations can, in turn, knock firms further out-of-equilibrium and cause changes in the system properties that govern their access to external knowledge. This path dependent loop of interactions between the system properties and the individual actions of firms, accounts for endogenous innovation and the dynamics of the system. Learn More

  9. Central and Local Government Relations in Asia

    Central and Local Government Relations in Asia

    Edited by Naoyuki Yoshino, Peter J. Morgan
    Sustainable and inclusive growth in emerging Asian economies requires high levels of public investment in areas such as infrastructure, education, health and social services. The increasing complexity and regional diversity of these investment needs, together with the trend of democratization, has led to fiscal decentralization being implemented in many Asian economies. This book takes stock of some major issues regarding fiscal decentralization, including expenditure and revenue assignments, transfer programs and sustainability of local government finances, and develops important findings and policy recommendations.

  11. Marketing and Markets in the Creative Industries

    Marketing and Markets in the Creative Industries

    Chris Bilton
    Technological and social change has transfigured the market for creative industries. A new generation of intermediaries including Amazon, Apple, Facebook and Google deal in context (how we consume) more than content (what we consume), displacing cultural producers, devaluing culturing products and monopolising consumer attention. Drawing on theoretical models across disciplines and rich in practical examples, this book charts an approach to marketing which challenges cultural producers to reclaim their place in the creative economy.

    Shale Gas, the Environment and Energy Security

    Ruven C. Fleming
    This pioneering and in-depth study into the regulation of shale gas extraction examines how changes in the constitutional set-ups of EU Member States over the last 25 years have substantially altered the legal leverage of environmental protection and energy security as state objectives. As well as offering the first formal assessment of the legality of fracking bans and moratoria, Ruven Fleming further proposes a new methodology for the development of legally sound regulation of new energy technologies in the context of the energy transition.

  14. Contract and Regulation

    Contract and Regulation

    Edited by Hans-W. Micklitz, Rob A.J. Van Gestel, Roger Brownsword
    Contract and Regulation: A Handbook on New Methods of Law Making in Private Law sheds light on the darker side of contracts. It begins by exploring the ‘regulatory space’ in which projects are planned, deals are done, and goods and services are consumed, then shows how a ‘bottom-up’ approach can be adopted in order to view this transactional space through the eyes of contractors. The expert contributors explore modes of governance that do not fit nicely into traditional contract theory, paying special attention to three key examples: governance and codes of conduction, networks and relations, compliance and use.

  17. The Legal Protection of Refugees with Disabilities

    The Legal Protection of Refugees with Disabilities

    Mary Crock, Laura Smith-Khan, Ron McCallum, Ben Saul
    This ground-breaking book focuses on the ‘forgotten refugees’, detailing people with disabilities who have crossed borders in search of protection from disaster or human conflict. The authors explore the intersection between one of the oldest international human rights treaties, the 1951 Convention relating to the Status of Refugees, with one of the newest: the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD). Drawing on fieldwork in six countries hosting refugees in a variety of contexts – Malaysia, Indonesia, Pakistan, Uganda, Jordan and Turkey – the book examines how the CRPD is (or should) be changing the way that governments and aid agencies engage with and accommodate persons with disabilities in situations of displacement. The timeliness of the book is underscored by the adoption in mid-2016 of the UN Charter on Inclusion of Persons with Disabilities in Humanitarian Action adopted at the World Humanitarian Summit.

  19. The Normative Foundations of European Competition Law

    The Normative Foundations of European Competition Law

    Oles Andriychuk
    Does competitive process constitute an autonomous societal value or is it a mere means for achieving more meritorious goals: welfare, growth, integration, and innovation? The hypothesis of The Normative Foundations of European Competition Law is that the former is the case. This insightful book analyses the phenomenon of competition from philosophical, legal and economic perspectives demonstrating exactly why competitive process should not be viewed only as an instrument. It consolidates various normative theories of freedom, market and competition, and explains how exactly they can be operationalized effectively in the matrix of the EU competition policy. Learn More

  20. Capital Gains Taxation

    Capital Gains Taxation

    Edited by Michael Littlewood, Craig Elliffe
    Capital gains taxes pose a host of design problems, both technical and political. The literature on the theory of capital gains taxation is substantial. However, curiously, little has been published on how governments have actually addressed the design dilemmas that such taxes can present. This book addresses that gap in the literature. Written by a team of distinguished experts from around the world, it explains how a number of countries tax capital gains and discusses what works and what doesn’t. Learn More
