  1. The Two Faces of Institutional Innovation

    The Two Faces of Institutional Innovation

    Leonardo Avritzer
    This book evaluates democratic innovations to allow a full analysis of the different practices that have emerged recently in Latin America. These innovations, often viewed in a positive light by a large section of democratic theorists, engendered the idea that all innovations are democratic and all democratic innovations are able to foster citizenship – a view challenged by this work. The book also evaluates the expansion of innovation to the field of judicial institutions. It will benefit democratic theorists by presenting a realistic analysis of the positive and negative aspects of democratic innovation. Learn More

  8. 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.

  10. Transitions to Good Governance

    Transitions to Good Governance

    Edited by Alina Mungiu-Pippidi, Michael Johnston
    Why have so few countries managed to leave systematic corruption behind, while in many others modernization is still a mere façade? How do we escape the trap of corruption, to reach a governance system based on ethical universalism? In this unique book, Alina Mungiu-Pippidi and Michael Johnston lead a team of eminent researchers on an illuminating path towards deconstructing the few virtuous circles in contemporary governance. The book combines a solid theoretical framework with quantitative evidence and case studies from around the world. While extracting lessons to be learned from the success cases covered, Transitions to Good Governance avoids being prescriptive and successfully contributes to the understanding of virtuous circles in contemporary good governance.

  12. Law's Regulatory Relevance?

    Law's Regulatory Relevance?

    Mark Findlay
    Law's regulatory relevance is under strain as never before. Focusing on the information economy, free trade exploitation, and confronting terrorist violence, the book critiques law's commodification in marketing property. It speculates on law as a community resource if it is to effectively order radical transitions in the collective conscience regarding access to property and new forms of valuation. Conventional legal regulatory modes such as theft and IP are challenged against waves of property use and the rethinking of property 'rights'. Learn More

  13. Global Climate Justice

    Global Climate Justice

    Olivier Godard
    In this thoughtful and original book, social scientist Olivier Godard considers the ways by which arguments of justice cling to international efforts to address global climate change. Proposals made by governments, experts and NGOs as well as concepts and arguments born of moral and political philosophy are introduced and critically examined. Godard contributes to this important debate by showing why global climate justice is still controversial, despite it being a key issue of our times. Learn More

  14. Liquid Nationalism and State Partitions in Europe

    Liquid Nationalism and State Partitions in Europe

    Stefano Bianchini
    This timely book offers an in-depth exploration of state partitions and the history of nationalism in Europe from the Enlightenment onwards. Stefano Bianchini compares traditional national democratic development to the growing transnational demands of representation with a focus on transnational mobility and empathy versus national localism against the EU project. In an era of multilevel identity, global economic and asylum seeker crises, nationalism is becoming more liquid which in turn strengthens the attractiveness of ‘ethnic purity’ and partitions, affects state stability, and the nature of national democracy in Europe. The result may be exposure to the risk of new wars, rather than enhanced guarantees of peace. Learn More

  15. The U.S. Supreme Court and Racial Minorities

    The U.S. Supreme Court and Racial Minorities

    Leslie F. Goldstein
    The U.S. Supreme Court and Racial Minorities offers an in-depth, chronologically arranged look at the record of the U.S. Supreme Court on racial minorities over the course of its first two centuries. It does not pose the anachronistic standard, ‘Did the Supreme Court get it right’ but rather, ‘How did the Supreme Court compare to other branches of the federal government at the time?’ Have these Justices, prevented against removal from office by discontented voters (in contrast to the President and the members of Congress), done any better than the elected branches of government at protecting racial minorities in America?

  16. Handbook of Innovation and Standards

    Handbook of Innovation and Standards

    Edited by Richard Hawkins, Knut Blind, Robert Page

This Handbook assembles a broad range of thinking on this subject, with contributions from several disciplinary perspectives by over 30 leading scholars and experienced practitioners. Collectively, they summarize and synthesize the existing body of knowledge – theory and evidence – pertaining to standards and innovation, and provide insights into how this knowledge can be useful to scholars, industrial strategists, policy-makers and standards practitioners.

  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.
