Globalisation and Governance

Globalisation and Governance

SKU 978-1-920025-39-7

As countries come to terms with the global financial crisis, their citizens become more assertive in many parts of the world. Challenges to conventional wisdom on economic governance are accompanied by the popular rejection of archaic systems of state government. At the global level new economic and political forces challenge former patterns of international domination.

In these contexts appropriate governance is the imperative of the age. Economic globalisation in particular requires reassessments of state and corporate governance, as well as reconsideration of how the international political economy is governed – or not governed.

Globalisation and Governance examines these themes from different disciplinary perspectives, in different national and institutional settings, and in terms of high theory and practical service delivery. It is topical and insightful and provokes thought on the governance challenges ahead.

"Increasing complexity of technology and production, combined with increasing globalisation, present a major challenge to traditional government and governance structures. This fascinating volume provides a set of incisive, perceptive and innovative chapters analysing many critical facets of this challenge. It not only provides an important advance in the discourse on globalisation and governance, but also adds an African voice to the discourse."
