The chapters assess arguments as to migration’s impact on the financial, social, and political stability of social programs. The volume includes comprehensive reviews of existing scholarship as well as state of the art original empirical analysis. Learn More

  6. The Politics of Persuasion

    The Politics of Persuasion

    Gert Tinggaard Svendsen, Urs S. Brandt
    The EU is at a crossroads. Should it choose the path towards protectionism or the path towards free trade? This book convincingly argues that lobbying regulation will be a decisive first step towards fulfilling the European dream of free trade, in accordance with the original purpose of the Treaty of Rome. Without the regulation of lobbyists to try and prevent undue political persuasion, there is a greater risk of abuse in the form of corruption, subsidies and trade barriers, which will come at the expense of consumers, tax payers and competitiveness.

  7. Human Rights and Corporate Wrongs

    Human Rights and Corporate Wrongs

    Simon Baughen
    The effects of globalization, together with the increase in foreign investment and resource development within the developing world, have created a context for human rights abuses by states in which corporations from the developed world are complicit. This has led to what John Ruggie has identified as ‘governance gaps’. This book will consider how these gaps may be closed, examining: the status of corporations under international law; the civil liability of corporations for their participation in international crimes; and self-regulation through voluntary codes of conduct, such as the 2011 UN Guiding Principles.

  10. Should Britain Leave the EU?

    Should Britain Leave the EU?

    Patrick Minford, Sakshi Gupta, Vo P.M. Le, Vidya Mahambare, Yongdeng Xu
    This second edition brings up to date a thorough review of all economic aspects of the UK's relationship with the EU, which also puts it in the political context of the upcoming referendum. It notes the intention of the EU to move to 'ever closer union' and the nature of the regulatory and general economic philosophy of the dominant countries of the EU whose writ is enforced by qualified majority voting. The book highlights the UK dilemma that, while extending free markets to its local region is attractive, this philosophy and intended union are substantially at odds with the UK's traditions of free markets and freedom under the common law.

  11. Handbook of Chinese Migration

    Handbook of Chinese Migration

    Edited by Iredale R. Robyn, Guo Fei
    The recent unprecedented scale of Chinese migration has had far-reaching consequences. Within China, many villages have been drained of their young and most able workers, cities have been swamped by the ‘floating population’, and many rural migrants have been unable to integrate into urban society. Internationally, the Chinese have become increasingly more mobile. This Handbook provides a unique collection of new and original research on internal and international Chinese migration and its effects on the sense of belonging of migrants. Learn More

  13. Research Handbook on Climate Governance

    Research Handbook on Climate Governance

    Edited by Karin Bäckstrand, Eva Lövbrand
    The 2009 United Nations climate conference in Copenhagen is often represented as a watershed in global climate politics, when the diplomatic efforts to negotiate a successor agreement to the Kyoto Protocol failed and was replaced by a fragmented and decentralized climate governance order. In the post-Copenhagen landscape the top-down universal approach to climate governance has gradually given way for a more complex, hybrid and dispersed political landscape involving multiple actors, arenas and sites. The Research Handbook on Climate Governance takes stock of these developments in time for the upcoming UN climate conference in Paris in December 2015. The Handbook contains contributions from more than 50 internationally leading scholars and explores the latest trends and theoretical developments of the climate governance scholarship. Learn More

  14. Towards European Science

    Towards European Science

    Edited by Linda Wedlin, Maria Nedeva
    Since the concept of the European Research Area was launched at the beginning of this century, significant effort has been made to realize the vision of a coherent space for science and research in Europe. But what is such a space, and how is it developing? This timely book analyses the dynamics of change in policy and governance of science and research within Europe over the past decade. It widens the scope of traditional policy analysis by focusing attention on the interaction between policy rationales, new governance mechanisms, and the organizational dynamics of the scientific field. The contributors build a novel analytical framework to understand the European research space as one shifting from a fragmented space of ‘science in Europe’ to one that is labelled ‘European Science’, and the chapters explore dynamics of this shift through the lenses of political science, organization theory, science policy and related analytical traditions.

  17. The Political Economy of Sustainable Development

    The Political Economy of Sustainable Development

    Timothy Cadman, Lauren Eastwood, Federico Lopez-Casero Michaelis, Tek N. Maraseni, Jamie Pittock, Tapan Sarker
    Since the Rio ‘Earth’ Summit of 1992, sustainable development has become the major policy response to tackling global environmental degradation, from climate change, to loss of biodiversity, and deforestation. Market instruments such as emissions trading, payments for ecosystem services, and timber certification have become the main mechanisms for financing the sustainable management of the earth’s natural resources. Yet how effective are they – and do they help the planet, and developing countries, or merely uphold the economic status quo? This book investigates these questions. Learn More
