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?

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Six contributions from scholars of political science discuss how globalization is affecting governance structures in European political economy. The first chapter examines the consequences of European integration for socially sensitive policy areas (alcohol in Sweden, drugs in the Netherlands, and abortion in Ireland). Other chapters cover, for example, changes in corporate governance in Germany, efforts to create a pan-European stock market for small high- technology firms, and European regional economic development.
