  1. 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

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

    David Demortain

  8. The Dynamics of Change in EU Governance

    The Dynamics of Change in EU Governance

    Edited by Udo Diedrichs, Wulf Reiners, Wolfgang Wessels
    This book brings together the research of different academic disciplines to explore the recent transformation of governance in the European Union. The emergence, execution and evolution of new modes of EU governance across several policy fields – encompassing all three former pillars of the European Union – are mapped, analysed and evaluated. In particular, the contributors focus on the ways in which these innovative mechanisms and practices relate to ‘old’ methods of governance and what their implications are for both the effectiveness and efficiency of policy-making. Particular attention is devoted to the impact of the Lisbon Treaty on the shape of EU governance. Conclusions are drawn in the form of an integrated framework that explores the dynamics and differentiation of EU governance. Learn More

    Public Governance in Asia and the Limits of Electoral Democracy

    Edited by Brian Bridges, Lok Sang Ho
    This book documents the search for a workable model of democracy in Asia. It begins with two conceptual chapters that explore the role of electoral democracy as a governance mechanism in the light of other governance mechanisms, then reviews the various forms of Asian democracy, including those that many may consider to be in name rather than in substance, that have been practiced to date, and indicates where these models may have failed or succeeded. Underpinned by extensive case studies, valuable insights into governance and democracy in Asia – arguably one of the most fascinating and dynamic regions in the world – are provided. Learn More

  15. Worlds in Transition

    Worlds in Transition

    Joseph A. Camilleri, Jim Falk
    The book’s detailed analysis of five strategic sectors (economy, environment, health, information and security) points to an intricate and rapidly evolving interplay of geopolitical, cultural and ecological spaces. It shows that the normative ethos and politico-legal institutions of the modern epoch are gradually being eroded. Despite competing trends and countertrends the authors discern the slow, at times ambiguous, often contentious but unmistakable emergence over the last several decades of a new governance regime, one which is striving for a leap in human reflexivity in response to the challenges of a stressed world that is simultaneously singular and plural.
