Global business regulation by John Braithwaite( Book )

15 editions published between 2000 and 2004 in English and held by 649 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"While powerful corporations often race to the bottom in setting regulatory standards, NGOs also often prevail in ratcheting up regulatory standards. In showing how, Global Business Regulation is a guidebook for how individuals and smaller organisations can prevail over more influential corporations in the world system." "Based on interviews with 500 international leaders in business and government, this book examines the role played by global institutions such as the World Trade Organization, World Health Organization, the OECD, IMF, Moodys and the World Bank, as well as various NGOs and significant individuals. Utilising 'micro - macro' theory, Braithwaite and Drahos make a landmark contribution to the theory of globalization by drawing the links between key mechanisms, actors and principles. The authors show how active world citizenship can have practical meaning. They argue that effective and decent global regulation depends on the determination of individuals to engage with powerful agendas and decision-making bodies that would otherwise be dominated by concentrated economic interests."--Jacket
Responsive regulation : transcending the deregulation debate by Ian Ayres( Book )

25 editions published between 1992 and 1995 in English and German and held by 614 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book transcends current debate on government regulation by lucidly outlining how regulations can be a fruitful combination of persuasion and sanctions. The regulation of business by the United States government is often ineffective despite being more adversarial in tone than in other nations. The authors draw on both empirical studies of regulation from around the world and modern game theory to illustrate innovative solutions to this problem. Their ideas include an argument for the empowerment of private and public interest groups in the regulatory process and a provocative discussion of
Corporate crime in the pharmaceutical industry by John Braithwaite( Book )

First published in 1984, this book examines corporate crime in the pharmaceutical industry. Based on extensive research, including interviews with 131 senior executives of pharmaceutical companies in the United States, the United Kingdom, Australia, Mexico and Guatemala, the book is a major study of white-collar crime. Written in the 1980s, it covers topics such as international bribery and corruption, fraud in the testing of drugs and criminal negligence in the unsafe manufacturing of drugs. The author considers the implications of his findings for a range of strategies to control corporat
Information feudalism : who owns the knowledge economy? by Peter Drahos( Book )

33 editions published between 2002 and 2007 in English and held by 611 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

How did rules governing intellectual property become part of the World Trade Organization's 'free trade' agreements? How have these rules changed the knowledge game for international business? What are the consequences for the ownership of biotechnology and digital technology, and for all those who will have to pay for what was once shared information? Who will be the global winners and losers? Based on extensive interviews with key players, Information Feudalism tells the story of these profound transformations in information ownership. It argues that in the globalized information society, t
Not just deserts : a republican theory of criminal justice by John Braithwaite( Book )

35 editions published between 1990 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 589 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Arguing for a radical shift in the research agenda of criminology, this monograph offers a comprehensive theory of criminal justice which draws on a philosophical view of the good and the right, and which points the way to practical intervention in the real world of incremental reform
Inequality, crime, and public policy by John Braithwaite( Book )

16 editions published between 1976 and 2014 in English and held by 503 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

First published in 1979, Inequality, Crime, and Public Policy integrates and interprets the vast corpus of existing research on social class, slums, and crime, and presents its own findings on these matters. It explores two major questions. First, do policies designed to redistribute wealth and power within capitalist societies have effects upon crime? Second, do policies created to overcome the residential segregation of social classes have effects on crime? The book provides a brilliantly comprehensive and systematic review of the empirical evidence to support or refute the classic theories
Corporations, crime, and accountability by Brent Fisse( Book )

16 editions published between 1993 and 1994 in English and held by 469 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In modern society corporate activities frequently result in serious harm, whether to the environment, to victims of industrial accidents or to persons who suffer loss from fraudulent operations. The BCCI global money laundering operation, the Union Carbide Bhopal disaster and the Zeebrugge ferry disaster are all examples of corporate crimes widely perceived as serious and punishable. But who should be responsible for corporate crime? Corporations rather than individual personnel are typically the prime target of prosecution, and if individuals are prosecuted it is often only because they have been scapegoated." "This book explains why accountability is rarely imposed under the present law and proposes solutions which would help to extend responsibility to a wide range of actors. The authors develop an Accountability Model which seeks to impose responsibility on all who are responsible for corporate crime. Under this Model, the courts and corporations would work together by having the law harness the internal disciplinary systems of organisations. In this way, accountability would be achieved across a much broader front than would otherwise be possible. The book argues that all who are responsible should be held responsible and that this ideal is attainable only if legal systems recognise corporate systems of justice and fully utilise their power." "At a time when the issue of corporate governance is high on the global political agenda, this book will be of great interest to academic and professional readers in criminology, law business studies, public policy and within corporations themselves."--Jacket

Restorative justice and family violence( Book )

6 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 418 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book addresses one of the most controversial topics in restorative justice: its potential for dealing with conflicts within families. Most restorative justice programs specifically exclude family violence as an appropriate offence to be dealt with this way. This book focuses on the issues in family violence that may warrant special caution about restorative justice, in particular, feminist and indigenous concerns. At the same time it looks for ways of designing a place for restorative interventions that respond to these concerns. Further, it asks whether there are ways that restorative processes can contribute to reducing and preventing family violence, to healing its survivors and to confronting the wellsprings of this violence. The book discusses the shortcomings of the present criminal justice response to family violence. It suggests that these shortcomings require us to explore other ways of addressing this apparently intractable problem

The sparking discipline of criminology : John Braithwaite and the construction of critical social science and social justice( Book )

6 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 73 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Over the past decades, the Australian social scientist John Braithwaite (1951) has played a crucial role in the development of international criminology. He is universally considered one of the most renowned criminologists of our times and he has characteristically put his scientific engagement at the service of humanity and society by aiming at social justice, participative democracy, sustainable development and world peace. His relentless efforts to create links between the study of criminology and other scientific disciplines has led the K.U. Leuven (Catholic University of Leuven, Belgium) t

Anomie and violence : non-truth and reconciliation in Indonesian peacebuilding by John Braithwaite( )

9 editions published in 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 54 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Indonesia suffered an explosion of religious violence, ethnic violence, separatist violence, terrorism, and violence by criminal gangs, the security forces and militias in the late 1990s and early 2000s. By 2002 Indonesia had the worst terrorism problem of any nation. All these forms of violence have now fallen dramatically. How was this accomplished? What drove the rise and the fall of violence? Anomie theory is deployed to explain these developments. Sudden institutional change at the time of the Asian financial crisis and the fall of President Suharto meant the rules of the game were up for grabs. Valerie Braithwaite & rsquo;s motivational postures theory is used to explain the gaming of the rules and the disengagement from authority that occurred in that era. Ultimately resistance to Suharto laid a foundation for commitment to a revised, more democratic, institutional order. The peacebuilding that occurred was not based on the high-integrity truth-seeking and reconciliation that was the normative preference of these authors. Rather it was based on non-truth, sometimes lies, and yet substantial reconciliation. This poses a challenge to restorative justice theories of peacebuilding
Reconciliation and architectures of commitment : sequencing peace in Bougainville by John Braithwaite( Book )

7 editions published in 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 28 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Following a bloody civil war, peace consolidated slowly and sequentially in Bougainville. That sequence was of both a top-down architecture of credible commitment in a formal peace process and layer upon layer of bottom-up reconciliation. Reconciliation was based on indigenous traditions of peacemaking. It also drew on Christian traditions of reconciliation, on training in restorative justice principles and on innovation in womens' peacebuilding. Peacekeepers opened safe spaces for reconciliation, but it was locals who shaped and owned the peace. There is much to learn from this distinctively indigenous peace architecture. It is a far cry from the norms of a 'liberal peace' or a 'realist peace'. The authors describe it as a hybrid 'restorative peace' in which 'mothers of the land' and then male combatants linked arms in creative ways. A danger to Bougainville's peace is weakness of international commitment to honour the result of a forthcoming independence referendum that is one central plank of the peace deal
Pillars and shadows : statebuilding as peacebuilding in Solomon Islands by V. A Braithwaite( Book )

7 editions published in 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 25 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume of the Peacebuilding Compared Project examines the sources of the armed conflict and coup in the Solomon Islands before and after the turn of the millennium. The Regional Assistance Mission to Solomon Islands (RAMSI) has been an intensive peacekeeping operation, concentrating on building 'core pillars' of the modern state. It did not take adequate notice of a variety of shadow sources of power in the Solomon Islands, for example logging and business interests, that continue to undermine the state's democratic foundations. At first RAMSI's statebuilding was neither very responsive to local voices nor to root causes of the conflict, but it slowly changed tack to a more responsive form of peacebuilding. The craft of peace as learned in the Solomon Islands is about enabling spaces for dialogue that define where the mission should pull back to allow local actors to expand the horizons of their peacebuilding ambition.--Publisher description
