  1. Law's Regulatory Relevance?

    Law's Regulatory Relevance?

    Mark Findlay
    Law’s Regulatory Relevance? theorises how the law should reposition itself in order to help rather than hinder new pathways of market power, by confronting the dominant neo-liberal economic model that values property through scarcity. With in-depth analysis of empirical case studies, the author explores how law is returning to its communal utility in strengthening social ties, which will in turn restore property as social relations rather than market commodities. In a world of contested narratives about property, valuing law needs to ground its inherent regulatory relevance in the ordering of social change. Learn More

  2. 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.

    Edited by Paul Verbruggen, Tetty Havinga
    Modern food governance is increasingly hybrid, involving not only government, but also industry and civil society actors.

  8. Exploring the EU’s Legitimacy Crisis

    Exploring the EU’s Legitimacy Crisis

    Christian Schweiger
    Exploring the EU’s Legitimacy Crisis provides a profound analysis of the causes and the consequences of the EU's growing legitimacy problem. The prior permissive consensus in the EU has been markedly declining under persistent crisis conditions. Since the onset of the eurozone crisis the EU's governance has been narrowly driven by the semi-hegemonial leadership of Germany – manifesting itself in functionalist and technocratic policy reforms concentrated on strengthening economic governance coordination. Other crucial policy areas have been neglected as member states show decreasing solidarity and a growing emphasis on national interests in response to mounting external challenges. This book examines these developments in detail by scrutinising the EU's ability to maintain legitimacy through political leadership, democratic accountability and governance efficiency. Learn More

  10. Advanced Introduction to Nationalism

    Advanced Introduction to Nationalism

    Liah Greenfeld
    This original Introduction presents nationalism as the most important social force shaping the ways modern people live their lives. It explains the formative influence of nationalism in the public spheres of politics and the economy, as well as the most private ones of emotional wellbeing and mental illness. Along the way, it illuminates widely used but rarely clarified concepts, such as social institution, revolution, ideology, and totalitarianism, and introduces new ones, like dignity capital, and nationalism as the double-helix of modern politics. Basing its conclusions on over 25 years of original comparative historical research, this book bears the characteristic Liah Greenfeld imprint: fact-based discussion, logical rigor, unexpected connections, and an exceptionally wide range of issues woven together to explain the way we live now.

This development has lent increased meaning to the notion of interactive governance, a concept that this book takes not as a normative ideal but as an empirical phenomenon that needs constant critical scrutiny, reflection and embedding in modern societies.

  13. Handbook on Theories of Governance

    Handbook on Theories of Governance

    Edited by Christopher Ansell, Jacob Torfing
    In the past two decades, governance theories have arisen semi-independently across multiple disciplines. In law and regulation, planning, democratic theory, economics, public management, and international relations, among other disciplines, scholars have sought to describe new strategies of governing. As a result, the notion of governance is now one of the most frequently used social science concepts in the world. No single theory encompasses this diverse body of work, but rather multiple theories with different aims and perspectives. The Handbook on Theories of Governance collects these theories of governance together as an analytical resource for governing in an increasingly complex, fragmented and dynamic society. Learn More

  15. The Politics of Persuasion

    The Politics of Persuasion

    Urs S. Brandt, Gert T. Svendsen
    The EU is at a crossroads. Should it choose the path towards protectionism or the path towards free trade? This book convincingly argues that lobbying regulation will be a decisive first step towards fulfilling the European dream of free trade, in accordance with the original purpose of the Treaty of Rome. Without the regulation of lobbyists to try and prevent undue political persuasion, there is a greater risk of abuse in the form of corruption, subsidies and trade barriers, which will come at the expense of consumers, tax payers and competitiveness.

  17. Should Britain Leave the EU?

    Should Britain Leave the EU?

    Patrick Minford, Sakshi Gupta, Vo P.M. Le, Vidya Mahambare, Yongdeng Xu
    This second edition brings up to date a thorough review of all economic aspects of the UK's relationship with the EU, which also puts it in the political context of the upcoming referendum. It notes the intention of the EU to move to 'ever closer union' and the nature of the regulatory and general economic philosophy of the dominant countries of the EU whose writ is enforced by qualified majority voting. The book highlights the UK dilemma that, while extending free markets to its local region is attractive, this philosophy and intended union are substantially at odds with the UK's traditions of free markets and freedom under the common law.
