The European Union as a Global Regulator? - Journal of European Public Policy Special Issues as Books (Paperback)Alasdair Young (editor)
- We can order this
The European Union is often depicted as a dominant global regulator. The purpose of this volume is to move beyond establishing that the EU influences global regulation towards an emphasis on the conditions with which it exerts that influence. Toward that end, it focuses on the EU's active efforts, both bilateral and multilateral, to shape regulations beyond its borders. The empirical chapters in this volume are explicitly comparative, among foreign partners, across international contexts, over time, and across issues. The more conceptual contributions posit an explanation for the EU's choice of regulatory cooperation strategy and take stock of Market Power Europe as a dynamic conceptual framework for understanding and researching the EU as a power. Collectively, this volume advances three arguments: the utility of the EU's regulatory power resources is context-specific; debates about what kinds of power projection the EU has been found to be, at least as currently conceived, unproductive; and that the EU's engagement in the world is better explained through general theories of international political economy.
