  2. The European Union and Globalisation

    The European Union and Globalisation

    Brigid Gavin
    The EU has taken a leading role in calling for a round of new trade negotiations in the WTO to deal with the issues of globalisation. Proposals in the EU call for expansion into new areas such as global investment, competition, and environmental rules in addition to liberalisation negotiations on agriculture and services. Issues such as global governance, capital mobility, and labour standards are also explored. Brigid Gavin questions if the EU’s call for path-breaking global negotiations is too ambitious and whether or not it will fail to achieve the required response from its trading partners. Learn More

  4. Corporate Governance and Globalization

    Corporate Governance and Globalization

    Edited by Stephen S. Cohen, Gavin Boyd
    This major book provides a new understanding of systems of corporate governance, notably in the USA, Japan and the EU. It discusses how governance influences corporate cultures and strategies, particularly in response to the effects of deepening integration in the world economy. These effects present challenges for governments, obliging them to focus increasingly on problems of the management of structural and foreign trade policies. Challenges in international financial markets also have to be confronted by policymakers as industries are funded more and more through cross-border investments, which reflect the responses of systems of corporate governance to globalization.
