Globalization and self-determination : is the nation state under siege? by David R Cameron( Book )

13 editions published between 2006 and 2011 in English and held by 159 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Is the nation state under siege? A common answer is that globalization poses two fundamental threats to state sovereignty. The first concerns the unleashing of centrifugal and centripetal forces - such as increasing market integration and the activities of institutions like the IMF, World Bank, and WTO - that imperil state sovereignty from 'outside' the nation state. The second threat emanates from self-determination movements that jeopardize state sovereignty from 'inside'. The effects of globalization and self-determination movements on state sovereignty are the subject of increasing attention from policymakers and the general public. Yet, surprisingly little rigorous research has looked into the extent to which or mechanisms by which globalization is threatening the nation-state. This book brings together the best current research to address this issue. Rigorously analyzing popular hypotheses on globalization's effect on state sovereignty from a broad social sciences perspective, the authors use empirical evidence to suggest that globalization's multilevel threats to state sovereignty have been overestimated.; In most instances globalization is likely to generate pressure for increased government spending while only one form of market integration - foreign direct investment by multinational enterprises - appears to increase any feeling of economic insecurity. This volume will be invaluable to course instructors at both graduate and undergraduate levels, policy makers and members of the general public who are concerned about the effects of globalization on the nation-state
