Overview

Exploring the impact of globalization —the increase in mobility of capital, goods, ideas, and people—on governance structures in the modern European political economy, the contributors to this volume evaluate a set of propositions about the effects of globalization in the context of several significant empirical settings: corporate governance, "sin regulation," regional economic development, fiscal reform, new equity markets, and legitimating discourse.

This book brings together arguments about globalization, European integration, and a broad set of observations about new or unconventional governance structures that are developing in domestic politics, political economy, and international relations within Europe. What mix of causal forces from the global, European, and national level accounts for these changes? Is Europe "special" in any sense? And what are the implications for Europe's relationship with global structures and institutions?
