Who Participates In Global Governance from the Author: Molly Ruhlman. "Why are non-state actors (NSAs) sometimes granted participation rights in International Organizations and what influences the decision? This work presents the case that that non-state actors have lobbied for formal participation roles in international organizations since at least the formation of the United Nations system but formal upstream participation roles are uncommon. Secretariats consistently support partnership with NSAs in implementation as a means towards greater efficiency or efficacy, and states consistently support such partnerships as launched by the secretariat as a means towards fulfilling the IO's intended mission. However, states and their IOs have more often than not raised opposition to granting NSAs a right of participation in member-state assemblies during decision-making. They have instead favoured informal means of consultation. During those occasions in which NSAs have been granted a formal right of participation during decision-making they have demonstrated the ability to supply specific benefits to IOs or to particular member-states who then support NSA participation rights. States and their organizations have consistently considered the formal inclusion of NSAs and chosen when, where, and in what ways to allow such inclusion in a manner that furthers the interests of individual states and their multilateral organizations. Challenging the regular assumption that the power of states and the efficacy of multilateral governance have simply wilted in the heat of globalization while NSAs have flourished, this work features analysis of key institutions such as UNCEF, UNDP and the Environment Programme. It will be of great interest to students and scholars of international relations, the United Nations, and NGOs."--Provided by publisher.

Global Corporations In Global Governance from the Author: Christopher May. This book offers a concise and accessible overview and analysis of the place of large multinational and regional corporations in the political economy of global governance.May argues that not only do corporations have an impact on the institutions of global governance, but they must be understood as a multifaceted institution of global governance in their own right, controlling and shaping significant aspects of the global political economy. Topics include: What are global corporations? Corporations and global governance The legal personality of the corporation Corporations and power Corporations and tax The future role of corporations in a post crisis global system Highlighting the central role of corporations in the generation and reproduction of norms in global governance, this work shows that corporations’ practices and relations are themselves both subjects, and sources of, global governance. It offers an enhanced understanding of the complex of issues that pattern the corporate global governance in the contemporary political economy and will be of interest to students in areas including IPE, global governance and international organizations.

Global Governance from the Author: Thomas G. Weiss. Friends and foes of international cooperation puzzle about how to explain order, stability, and predictability in a world without a central authority. How is the world governed in the absence of a world government? This probing yet accessible book examines "global governance" or the sum of the informal and formal values, norms, procedures, and institutions that help states, intergovernmental organizations, civil society, and transnational corporations identify, understand, and address trans-boundary problems. The chasm between the magnitude of a growing number of global threats - climate change, proliferation of weapons of mass destruction, terrorism, financial instabilities, pandemics, to name a few - and the feeble contemporary political structures for international problem-solving provide compelling reasons to read this book. Fitful, tactical, and short-term local responses exist for a growing number of threats and challenges that require sustained, strategic, and longer-run global perspectives and action. Can the framework of global governance help us to better understand the reasons behind this fundamental disconnect as well as possible ways to attenuate its worst aspects? Thomas G. Weiss replies with a guardedly sanguine "yes".

Fit F R Global Governance from the Author: Marianne Beisheim. Angesichts zunehmender Globalisierung und Internationalisierung ergeben sich neue Herausforderungen für politische Akteure. Im Buch wird untersucht, inwiefern ausgewählte Interessengruppen (Industrieverbände, Gewerkschaften, Umweltgruppen) bei ihrer Arbeit zu einem globalen Politikproblem wie dem Klimawandel mit grenzüberschreitenden Aktionen und Vernetzungsaktivitäten reagieren und was dies für die demokratische Legitimität klimapolitischer ,Global Governance' bedeutet. Interessengruppen werden wichtige Aufgaben im Rahmen nationaler Demokratien zugesprochen. Im Band wird diskutiert, ob sie diese Funktionen nun auch mit Blick auf sich entwickelnde demokratische Formen internationalen Regierens übernehmen und welche Probleme noch zu überwinden sind. Statt der erwarteten transnationalen Reorientierung und -organisation der Interessengruppen wird eine Pluralisierung der durch die Gruppen erprobten Kanäle und Formen der Partizipation und Interessenvermittlung beobachtet. Positive Beiträge mit Blick auf die Input- und Output-Legitimität von Global Governance kontrastieren mit Defiziten, sowohl auf Seiten der Gruppen selbst sowie auf Seiten der Governance-Institutionen, welche eine umfassende Realisierung des vorhandenen Demokratisierungspotentials behindern.

Global Governance And Ngo Participation from the Author: Charlotte Dany. This book explores the limits of NGO influence and the conditions that constrain NGOs when they participate in international negotiations Through an empirically rich study of the UN World Summits on the Information Society (WSIS) this book conceptualizes structural power mechanisms that shape global ICT governance and analyses the impact of NGOs on communication rights, intellectual property rights, financing, and Internet governance. The institutional framework of UN negotiations makes it easy for states to exclude NGOs from crucial meetings and to neglect their most relevant demands, in part explaining why NGOs had only limited influence on the policy outcomes of the WSIS in Geneva 2003 and Tunis 2005, although high numbers of NGOs participated. Using a critical perspective, Dany demonstrates that despite the far-reaching participation rights for civil society actors, structural power mechanisms continued to limit the influence of participating NGOs and this contradicts the widely held assumption that extensive NGO participation necessarily increases NGO influence on the policy outcomes. This book will be of interest to students and scholars of international relations, global governance, the United Nations, and global information and communication politics.

Contending Perspectives On Global Governance from the Author: Alice D. Ba. Global governance is fast becoming a ubiquitous phrase, succeeding globalization as the latest buzz term. But exactly what does it mean? For many scholars and policymakers the term captures important aspects of world politics. This unique volume delivers and compares the key perspectives of the leading thinkers in the area, equipping the reader with an excellent understanding of the debate now defining and mapping the future of this term. This comparative approach is underpinned by a lucid theoretical framework which guides the reader towards building a clear sense of the debate and its complexities. A wide range of empirical issues are covered, including those of Security, International Political Economy, Environment, Human Rights, Social Movements and Regulation. Including theorists of social constructivism, liberal imperialism and realism, this is an essential book for students and scholars which stimulates discussion and presents a fully rounded picture of global governance.

Nichtregierungsorganisationen Soziale Bewegungen Und Global Governance from the Author: Armin Stickler. Mit der Globalisierungsthematik sind seit den 1990er Jahren Nichtregierungsorganisationen (NGOs) in den Mittelpunkt des Interesses sowohl der Politik als auch der Sozialwissenschaften gerückt. Oftmals wurden NGOs dabei als Träger der Hoffnungen auf Entfaltung zivilgesellschaftlicher Entwicklungen in der Weltgesellschaft betrachtet. Die vorliegende Studie analysiert die inzwischen ausdifferenzierte Debatte um NGOs und zeigt kritisch deren theoretische Defizite auf, indem verschiedene Theorien der Weltgesellschaft sowie der herrschaftskritischen Organisationstheorie auf innovative Weise zusammengeführt werden. NGOs erscheinen so eben nicht als Gegenspieler der Globalisierung, sondern als Vermittler der universalistisch-rationalistischen Grundstruktur der Moderne. Ihre Einbettung in das hegemoniale Doppelkonzept von »dialogischen Verfahren« und »formaler Organisierung« verhindert, dass emanzipatorische Alternativen auf globaler Ebene relevant werden.

Critical Legal Perspectives On Global Governance from the Author: Gráinne de Búrca. This book of essays, written in honour of Professor David Trubek, explores many of the themes which he has himself written about, most notably the emergence of a global critical discourse on law and its application to global governance. As law becomes ever more implicated in global governance and as processes related to and driven by globalisation transform legal systems at all levels, it is important that critical traditions in law adapt to the changing legal order and problématique. The book brings together critical scholars from the EU, and North and South America to explore the forms of law that are emerging in the global governance context, the processes and legal roles that have developed, and the critical discourses that have been formed. By looking at critical appraisals of law at the global, regional and national level, the links among them, and the normative implications of critical discourses, the book aims to show the complexity of law in today's world and demonstrate the value of critical legal thought for our understanding of issues of contemporary governance and regulation. Scholars from many countries contribute critical studies of global and regional institutions, explore the governance of labour and development policy in depth, and discuss the changing role of lawyers in global regulatory space.
