Transnational Governance: Emerging Models of Global Legal Regulation (Hardback)Michael Head (editor), Scott Mann (author)
Hardback 280 Pages
As globalization continues to spread and evolve, so nation-states attempt to govern financialization, tax evasion, corruption, terrorism, civil and military conflicts and environmental dangers, social polarization and the complexities in human rights implementation, by institutional and transnational means. This volume discusses these issues from different legal perspectives and highlights the challenges of governing human activity in an age of remarkable interconnectedness. Covering a broad range of policy areas and analysis of emerging forms of governance from liberal to critical and Marxist, the chapters are legal in their approach and form an important contribution to the growing study of emergent forms of authority, coordination and power developing in response to the challenges presented by some of the key contemporary governance issues in the first half of the twenty-first century.

'Until the publication of this text it has always been difficult to conceptualize the meaning and scope of Transnational Governance. By incorporating a varied group of contributors who are all experts in their own fields, the editors of this publication have been able to achieve a credible explanation of an increasingly challenging feature of international regulation and governance.' David Barker AM, Emeritus Professor and Editor of the Legal Education Digest 'The University of Western Sydney School of Law has produced an exciting, wide-ranging and versatile survey of the past, present and future systems of transnational governance. Importantly, this book contributes to our understanding of the sources, causes and effects of the increasing legalization of global governance.' Heikki PatomAki, University of Helsinki, Finland
