A fresh alternative to traditional state-centred analyses of the process of European integration is presented in this book. World-renowned scholars analyze the state in terms of its component parts and clearly show the interaction of subnational, national and supranational actors in the emerging European polity. This `multi-level politics' approach offers a powerful lens through which to view the future course of European integration. The contributors' empirical exploration of areas such as regional governance, social policy and social movements underpins their broad conceptual and theoretical framework providing significant new insight into European politics.

This unique study breaks new ground in engaging the study of Northern Ireland politics directly with broader debates about European integration and European governance. The text offers the most comprehensive coverage to date of the institutional development of Northern Ireland following the UK government's devolution programme and Northern Ireland's development as an autonomous policy actor in Europe. This study marshals evidence from Northern Ireland's relationship with the European Union (EU) during the contemporary era of devolved power. The text argues that in Northern Ireland a series of national and regional constraints, complexities and divisions limit regional autonomy. These original insights question the synergy between devolution and the EU and query the existence of new forms of 'governance'. This is a contribution of both immense substance and considerable importance and should be essential reading for those with an interest in Northern Ireland and EU politics.

`Dermot McCann has succeeded in producing a superb book on the political economy of the European Union. This rigorous and extremely readable account makes a major contribution to our understanding of the tension between economic governance at the European level and national patterns of governance that often challenge the EU's liberal ambitions.' Alasdair Blair, De Montfort University `The Political Economy of the European Union is a wise, knowledgeable and eminently readable account of the development of EU capitalism. Dermot McCann's study of the impact of EU-driven market liberalization upon national models of capitalism and of the limits and limitations of neo-liberalism is fascinating. The sections on work and welfare and on social Europe and industrial relations are worth the admission price alone. McCann's study of EU capitalism makes an invaluable contribution to comparative political economy.' Richard Dunphy, University of Dundee The core business of the European Union is the creation of an integrated European market. The scale of this project is enormous, covering a wide variety of national `models' of capitalism, many of which are market by a heavy reliance on non-market institutions to govern and coordinate economic activity. The Political Economy of the European Union introduces students to the fundamentals of EU policy towards these national political economic governance institutions and the challenges arising from this evolving relationship. Chapter 1 examines the role of institutions in governing capitalist systems. Chapter 2 explores the evolution of the EU's liberal ambition over the past five decades. Subsequent chapters then analyse the development of EU policy in relation to the governance of product, financial and labour markets. What sort of restructuring has it sought to achieve? How great a challenge do EU policies present to national practices? How effective have been its strategies of Europeanization? In short, to what extent has it effected a liberal transformation in the institutional governance of European capitalism? At issue are fundamental questions concerning the power and status of nation-states in the context of the most ambitious experiment in cooperative regional integration yet witnessed.

In this book the European Union and the twelve post-Soviet countries forming the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) are presented as two comparable cases of regional governance regimes. The examination of the EU decision-making procedures reveals that they allow member-states, as well as important domestic social groups, to pursue their often-contrasting interests and preferences in a consensual manner. As the whole arrangement is meant to promote regional integration, it supports and encourages social mobility and the socially mobile groups in particular. Contrary to the classic modernist vision, the nation-state as an institution of political nationalism does not always promote social progress or social justice. It also presupposes an insecure anarchy in interstate relations. As the post-Soviet experiences, in particular, demonstrate, political institutionalisation of nationalism can actually be in agreement with socially degrading tendencies that limited supranationalism can help toovercome. The EU, on the other hand, presents an advanced example of how supranational institutions and national governments can be tied together with one and the same structure in order to balance national interests against common values and goals. This work addresses such problems through the prism of cultural analysis. Central to it is the assumption that political institutions cannot be understood without exposing the social orientations they are tuned to.

Since the end of the Cold War, European and East Asian states have developed a series of unique trans-boundary structures and agreements, such as the European Union and ASEAN, and through new bilateral, multilateral and inter-regional relationships both Europe and East Asia are helping to transform other regions and the global community. This publication examines the complex emergence of a multi-level global governance system through innovative developments in info-communications governance; the role of policy advisors, think-tanks and related track-2 processes; and changes in higher education systems.

Global Governance from Regional Perspectives argues that the academic debate on global governance has neglected the combination of power with value constellations/culture. Both input and output legitimacy, for instance, or the exercise of control and influence are inextricably related to culture, worldviews, and values. The book questions theoretically the Western hegemonic and hence 'invisible' definition of governance and related concepts, as well as the Western hegemony over global governance institutions. It looks from the ground up whether, and how, alternative practices, institutions/networks, and concepts/norms of global governance are emerging in relation to emerging powers and regional integration systems. Global Governance from Regional Perspectives starts with a critical reading of global governance from multi-disciplinary views and engages with two important and under-studied aspects, notably how global governance can be measured and what lies behind such measurements , and questions the democratic deficit of global governance. The book provides a series of regional and country perspectives on global governance which engage with a specific example of an institution, process, or issue that is used to highlight why and how the western hegemonic views and practices of global governance are (or not) contested. The book offers a mapping of global governance phenomena in different regions of the world and a critical readings of those. As such this volume is different from all international relations or political science collections on global governance and also opens up a new field of study that has been hitherto neglected in sociological or cultural studies.
