Globalization and Public Policy examines the relationship between the globalizing trends found in many areas of economic and political life and the domestic and international forces that might favour, impede, ameliorate or even reverse them. Drawing on a wider body of expertise than is found in most contemporary work on globalization, this authoritative volume features new work by specialists in international relations and international political economy, as well as by scholars working in such fields as European public policy, political development and political philosophy. Subjects addressed include the international trade regime, aspects of political development, multinational enterprises and regionalism, the financial telecommunications, health care and defence sectors, and whether early liberal concepts of justice can address the distributive problems raised by globalization. While focusing on policy processes and dynamics - rather than the political units on which they are operating - the challenges to, and limits of, state power are an essential part of this volume's subject matter. Globalization has had more impacts in some policy arenas than others and its conceptual basis and underlying causes remain complex. Globalization and Public Policy examines these issues from a wide range of perspectives to understand globalization, the underlying forces at work and the impact on national values.
