About the Authors
  • It is generally argued that globalization has seriously limited the state's capacity to govern domestically. This book questions the thesis that the state's role in promoting social protection and wealth creation has been restricted. Covering a range of areas of state activity and political issues in developing and developed countries, the contributors explore the impact of global interdependence. They argue that globalization can enable as well as constrain, and that the effects will depend on the character of a country's domestic institutions.

    • Opens up an avenue of research into the effects of globalisation on the state
    • Provides in depth analysis of both developed and developing countries
    • Focuses on both welfare and industrial governance issues
