  2. Pharmaceuticals, Corporate Crime and Public Health

    Pharmaceuticals, Corporate Crime and Public Health

    Graham Dukes, John Braithwaite, J. P. Moloney
    The pharmaceutical industry exists to serve the community, but over the years it has engaged massively in corporate crime, with the public footing the bill. This readable study by experts in medicine, law, criminology and public health documents the problems, ranging from false advertising and counterfeiting to corruption waste and overpricing, with unacceptable pressures on doctors, politicians, patients and the media. Uniquely, the book goes on to present a realistic and worldwide solution for the future, with positive policies encouraging honest dealing as well as partial privatization of enforcement and greater emphasis on creative research to develop the medicines that society needs most.

  3. The New Regulatory Space

    The New Regulatory Space

    Frank Vibert
    This groundbreaking book analyses changing patterns of governance in modern democratic societies. Frank Vibert discusses how far we should be concerned about such changes and what we should be concerned about. Crucially, Vibert clarifies the status of regulation, revealing how regulation should be viewed, not only as a technique offering specific responses to particular policy problems, but also in its new role as the key mechanism for making adjustments between the different systems of coordination used in contemporary governance.

    Quality of Government and Corruption from a European Perspective

    Nicholas Charron, Victor Lapuente, Bo Rothstein
    In this book the authors tackle the concept of ‘quality of government’ (QoG) both conceptually and empirically and apply their focus to EU countries and regions. In a pioneering empirical effort, they map out regional QoG for the first time for 172 NUTS 1 and 2 regions throughout 18 countries in the EU, and provide a detailed methodology. They follow up the quantitative assessment with three case studies demonstrating the wide variation of QoG found within the countries of Italy, Belgium and Romania. The book concludes with important lessons and ideas for future research. Learn More

  15. Good Government

    Good Government

    Edited by Sören Holmberg, Bo Rothstein
    In all societies, the quality of government institutions is of the utmost importance for the well-being of its citizens. Problems like high infant mortality, lack of access to safe water, unhappiness and poverty are not primarily caused by a lack of technical equipment, effective medicines or other types of knowledge generated by the natural or engineering sciences. Instead, the critical problem is that the majority of the world’s population live in societies that have dysfunctional government institutions. Central issues discussed in the book include: how can good government be conceptualized and measured, what are the effects of ‘bad government’ and how can the quality of government be improved?

  17. Political Governance of Capitalism

    Political Governance of Capitalism

    Helmut Willke, Gerhard Willke
    This path-breaking book highlights that systemic risks emerge from a globally operating financial industry that is not only disconnected from the real economy but also allowed to hide in ‘shadow banking’ practices. Governance based on national regimes fails to cover ‘finance-led’ global capitalism. The authors argue that the risk of systemic meltdown will reappear unless intelligent governance regimes are installed, combining legally binding rules and civil society pressures to restore the balance between risk-taking and accountability. They illustrate the goal is ‘resilient’ capitalism in which the rules of the game are set by politics and knowledge-based discourse. Learn More

  19. The Politics of Accounting Regulation

    The Politics of Accounting Regulation

    Sebastian Botzem
    The global financial crisis underlines the relevance of accounting standards as much more than instrumental rules for corporate reporting. This important book details the accounting standards that embody societal and professional values and contribute to the distribution of financial benefits that put international harmonization of standards into the limelight. Sebastian Botzem reveals that international standards have emerged after decades of contest and political bargaining, which resulted in closely aligned standards, voluntary consultation procedures and a network structure comprising actors mainly stemming from global auditing firms, regulators and international organizations.

  20. Migration and Global Governance

    Migration and Global Governance

    Edited by Alan Gamlen, Katharine Marsh
    In this noteworthy collection, the editors present the key articles published over the past twenty years which illustrate three related ‘modes’ of governing migration: a national mode, an international mode and a transnational mode. In recent years a new phase of migration policy-making has emerged: nation states, international organizations and NGOs have increasingly directed their efforts towards cooperative management of transnational flows and networks. With an original introduction by the editors, this ground-breaking volume explores the rise of this distinctive new transnational approach in relation to other pre-existing and emerging modes of regulating global migration.
