  1. European Public–Private Collaboration

    European Public–Private Collaboration

    Ulrika Mörth
    This book looks at some of the major themes concerning governance in the EU, namely the focus on market-friendly regulations, output legitimacy and how the requirement of efficiency is combined with the requirement of democratic accountability. The dilemma between efficiency and democratic accountability is analysed in three cases of close collaboration between public and private actors: the European satellite navigation programme (Galileo), the European Investment Bank and health policies, and the European financial market – especially the banking sector.

  5. The Impact of the WTO

    The Impact of the WTO

    Trish Kelly
    This volume is the first to provide a comprehensive analysis of the nine environmental and health disputes that have been adjudicated at the WTO since 1995. The investigation concludes that criticism of the WTO has been overstated and, surprisingly, nations do in fact retain sovereignty over environmental and health policy. The disputes explored suggest that the WTO has been able to balance trade, environmental and health objectives. The discussion illuminates the strengths and weaknesses of the dispute resolution process and closes with suggestions for improving it. Learn More

  6. Private Institutions and Global Governance

    Private Institutions and Global Governance

    Philipp H. Pattberg
    This book analyses the recent emergence of transnational forms of environmental regulation within the larger conceptual context of global governance research and institutional theory. Increasingly, private policies at the transnational level complement, and in some cases even replace, public interventions. The author takes a deep and broad look at the phenomenon to account for both the emergence and the influence of private institutions in global governance and sustainability. Learn More

  7. Democratic Governance and European Integration

    Democratic Governance and European Integration

    Edited by Ronald Holzhacker, Erik Albaek
    As the power and scope of the European Union moves further, beyond traditional forms of international cooperation between sovereign states, it is important to analyse how these developments are impacting upon national institutions and processes of democratic representation and legitimacy in the member countries. The authors in this book identify four core processes of democratic governance present in any democratic political system that link societal and state processes of decision-making: opinion formation, interest intermediation, national executive decision-making and national parliamentary scrutiny.

    The Role of Committees in the Policy-Process of the European Union

    Edited by Thomas Christiansen, Torbjörn Larsson
    This book provides a comprehensive account of the role of the advisory, legislative and implementation committees involved in the policy-making process of the European Union. This is an aspect of EU politics that is often overlooked and remains under-researched, even though such committees can have wide-ranging influence in the policy-process. Learn More

  9. International Environmental Liability and Barriers to Trade

    International Environmental Liability and Barriers to Trade

    Kareen L. Holtby, William A. Kerr, Jill E. Hobbs
    Trade and the environment has become a major issue in international relations, yet the surrounding debate is polarised and hostile. On the one hand international trade is perceived as a major threat to environmental sustainability, whilst on the other trade and the economic development arising from it is seen as the prerequisite to stronger environmental protection. Nowhere is the debate more acrimonious than over trade in genetically modified organisms. The Biosafety Protocol has been negotiated to govern trade in genetically modified products and includes provisions for an international liability regime to facilitate trade – a subject that has been little studied. This valuable book explores the role, design and potential effectiveness of an international liability regime and will be an essential read to all those interested in international trade policy, environmental economics, international politics and international law.

  10. Dynamics and Obstacles of European Governance

    Dynamics and Obstacles of European Governance

    Edited by Dirk De Bièvre, Christine Neuhold
    This book examines some of the major origins of change in institutions and policies in European governance. The authors combine a sophisticated institutional analysis with in-depth insights into European policies across a wide variety of policy fields. The fields examined are higher education, employment, research, police co-operation, as well as foreign affairs, trade, energy, and security and defence policy. Presenting the fruit of years of collaboration in an EU-funded Research Training Network, the authors expand the mechanisms through which political actors transform apparent deadlock into actual change in European policy making.

  11. The New Electronic Marketplace

    The New Electronic Marketplace

    George Christou, Seamus Simpson
    This book breaks new ground by exploring governance strategies that the EU has been developing over the last decade for the growing electronic economy driven by the Internet. Through an analysis of key EU policy initiatives, the authors provide an explanation of both the form and mechanics of emergent governance arrangements within the European e-economy. Drawing on data gathered through interviews with key national and EU level policymakers, the volume applies theoretical insights from academic work on the ‘regulatory’ and ‘post-regulatory’ state to situate and explain the EU’s role as an international regional actor in a new area of economic activity with important national and global dimensions.

  13. Governance of Biodiversity Conservation in China and Taiwan

    Governance of Biodiversity Conservation in China and Taiwan

    Gerald A. McBeath, Tse-Kang Leng
    China and Taiwan have roughly one-eighth of the world’s known species. Their approaches to biodiversity issues thus have global as well as national repercussions. Gerald McBeath and Tse-Kang Leng explore the ongoing conflicts between economic development, typically pursued by businesses and governments, and communities seeking to preserve and protect local human and ecosystem values.

  14. The International Politics of Bird Conservation

    The International Politics of Bird Conservation

    Robert Boardman
    The International Politics of Bird Conservation assesses international cooperation on migratory and endangered birds in different regions of the world. Robert Boardman illustrates that – although birds are protected in international treaties, by national legislation and through the projects of non-governmental organizations – the threats to many species have mounted. Threats arise from ecologically inappropriate agricultural and forestry practices, the spread of cities and the draining of wetlands, among other factors. Learn More

  15. Implementing the Precautionary Principle

    Implementing the Precautionary Principle

    Edited by Elizabeth Fisher, Judith Jones, René von Schomberg
    This challenging book takes a broad and thought-provoking look at the precautionary principle and its implementation, or potential implementation, in a number of fields. In particular, it explores the challenges faced by public decision-making processes when applying the precautionary principle, including its role in risk management and risk assessment. Frameworks for improved decision-making are considered, followed by a detailed analysis of prospective applications of the precautionary principle in a number of emerging fields including: nanotechnology, climate change, natural resource management and public health policy. The analysis is both coherent and interdisciplinary, employing perspectives from law, the social sciences and public policy with a view to improving both the legitimacy and effectiveness of public policy at national and international levels.

  16. Telecommunications Policy-Making in the European Union

    Telecommunications Policy-Making in the European Union

    Joseph W. Goodman
    Examining the emergence of a European Union telecommunications policy, Joseph Goodman explains how and why the policy developed as it did and why certain reforms in the sector were easier to achieve than others. He provides a history of the key actors in the policy-making process from the first attempts by the national postal, telegraph, and telecommunication administrations to coordinate their telecommunications policies in the 1950s, to the implementation of a comprehensive EU telecommunications regulatory structure in 1998 and the development of a new regulatory structure in 2003.

  17. Climate Change, Justice and Future Generations

    Climate Change, Justice and Future Generations

    Edward A. Page
    Global climate change raises important questions of international and intergenerational justice. In this important new book the author places research on the origins and impacts of climate change within the broader context of distributive justice and sustainable development. He argues that a range of theories of distribution – notably those grounded in ideals of equality, priority and sufficiency – converge on the adoption of the ambitious global climate policy framework known as ‘Contraction and Convergence’.

  18. The Making of the European Union

    The Making of the European Union

    Sten Berglund, Joakim Ekman, Henri Vogt, Frank H. Aarebot
    The Making of the European Union argues that the process of European integration has drifted into serious crisis, perhaps the most serious since the Danes voted against the Treaty of the European Union in 1992. French and Dutch voters blatantly rejected the Treaty establishing a Constitution for Europe in the summer of 2005, thus freezing the constitutional process for at least a year. The outcome of these referenda indicates that the views and attitudes of average Europeans have not been sufficiently listened to. Learn More

  19. Adjusting to EU Enlargement

    Adjusting to EU Enlargement

    Edited by Constantine A. Stephanou
    Before the latest EU enlargement, substantial changes in the integration process were predicted as a result of the accession of 10 new Member States, with some forecasting cataclysmic consequences. This book, one of the first ex post assessments of EU enlargement, provides evidence to the contrary, while also providing examples in which the new Members have been able to influence EU policy output with their liberal attitudes on economic and social policy.

    Reflexive Governance for Sustainable Development

    Edited by Jan-Peter Voß, Dierk Bauknecht, René Kemp
    This book deals with the issue of sustainable development in a novel and innovative way. It examines the governance implications of reflexive modernisation – the condition that societal development is endangered by its own side-effects. With conceptualising reflexive governance the book leads a way out of endless quarrels about the definition of sustainability and into a new mode of collective action. Learn More
