Rising states, rising institutions : challenges for global governance by Alan S Alexandroff( )

17 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 1,882 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The global order is shifting in an unprecedented fashion. No major war has intervened to reshape the balance of power; nor has the world seen events as dramatic as collapse of communism and end of bipolarity in 1989. Change is afoot. While the United States remains world's leading power, thanks to its combination of military and economic strength, technological prowess, and cultural appeal, Washington cannot simply impose its will on others. The European Union remains an independent force in global politics, and a host of rising states including China, India, and Brazil clamor to make their voices heard. This book examines forces reshaping world politics and analyzes institutions that are rising to meet the demand for new forms of global governance. Contributors analyze different models of international cooperation, the states that have most actively challenged the existing order, and leading and emergent international institutions such as the G-20, the nascent regime for sovereign wealth funds, the International Atomic Energy Agency, and forums organized to foster cooperation in the war on terror--Publisher's description

Reforming from the top : a Leaders' 20 Summit by John English( )

15 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 1,755 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The system of global governance is under serious challenge. Some scholars and practitioners have suggested that the time has come for the establishment of new multilateral forums that reflect 21st century realities. One option attracting increased attention in policy and academic circles is to create a Summit of the leaders of 20 nations (L20). This book explores whether the creation of an L20 is a feasible possibility for the international community. It offers thematic and geographic arguments in favour of the L20, with a particular emphasis on the larger role that it could play in bringing about reform of the global economic and financial systems."--Jacket
Tests of global governance : Canadian diplomacy and United Nations world conferences by Andrew Fenton Cooper( )

11 editions published between 2004 and 2006 in English and held by 1,729 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book provides a detailed examination of the interface between diplomatic method and new forms of global governance located at the world conferences sponsored by the United Nations. Cast as a series of tests highlighting key concepts and issues central to the operation of international relations, this work demonstrates that global governance has become a multi-layered process within which states and non-state actors alike play vital, if often conflicting roles." "The role of Canada and Canadians in UN World Conferences is explored as a unique and representative sample of how state-craft and new forms of society-craft have taken shape over the past decade. The picture that emerges suggests a deepening network of institutions, actors, and organizations that are animating the complex regimes that govern the major arenas of world politics. The analysis supports the view that a deep residue of multilateralism still exists in a country such as Canada but argues that this tradition faces on-going challenges from a variety of sources."--Jacket

18 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 1,609 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

How have the different Lefts, as exemplified by the governments of Venezuelas Hugo Chvez and Brazils Lula shaped the region? What is the outlook of new entities such as the South American Union of Nations, and how have older entities such as the Organization of American States fared?

Intervention without intervening? : the OAS defense and promotion of democracy in the Americas by Andrew F Cooper( )

16 editions published between 2006 and 2016 in English and held by 806 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book looks at the evolution of OAS multilateralism for democracy and the lessons its experience holds for other multilateral contexts. It also tackles the theoretical challenge of bridging the traditional divide between international relations and comparative politics. The book stresses the need for conceptual tools that allow scholars to take into consideration the transnationalization of democratization processes in their analysis, where previous emphasis was placed on domestic variables in regime change. The growing role of the OAS, the Rio Group, foreign governments, and international NGOs in democracy assistance underscores the transnational nature of current democratization trends. The authors present an "inter-active" approach to tackle the dilemma of the inter-relation between internal and external factors."--Publisher's website
Emerging powers in global governance : lessons from the Heiligendamm process( )

6 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 776 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The early twenty-first century has seen the beginning of a considerable shift in the global balance of power. Major international governance challenges can no longer be addressed without the ongoing co-operation of the large countries of the global South. Brazil, Russia, India, China, South Africa, ASEAN states, and Mexico wield great influence in the macro-economic foundations upon which rest the global political economy and institutional architecture. It remains to be seen how the size of the emerging powers translates into the ability to shape the international system to their own will

Relocating middle powers : Australia and Canada in a changing world order by Andrew F Cooper( Book )

12 editions published between 1993 and 1994 in English and held by 405 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The fall of the Berlin Wall and the disintegration of the Soviet Union were only two of the many events that profoundly altered the international political system in the late 1980s and early 1990s. In a world no longer dominated by Cold War tensions, nation states had to rethink their international roles and focus more on economic rather than military concerns. This book examines how two middle powers, Australia and Canada, engaged in the difficult process of relocating themselves in the rapidly changing international political economy. The authors argue that the concept of middle power has continuing relevance in contemporary international relations theory, and they present a number of case studies to illustrate the changing nature of middle power behaviour. In particular, they examine the trend towards the amalgamation of the foreign and trade ministries in both Canada and Australia, and the growing importance of regional trading blocs, particularly Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation and the North American Free Trade Agreement. Australian and Canadian roles in the Gulf War are also scrutinized, showing how these middle powers found themselves caught up in the coalition-building dynamic that transformed Desert Shield into Desert Storm. Relocating Middle Powers is the first book to explore the similar ties and differences in the foreign policies of two middle powers in a new era of international relations. Focusing on the ability of middle powers to exercise technical and entrepreneurial leadership on a range of international issues, this book shows how and why middle powers will continue to be important international actors in the 1990s and beyond
The Oxford handbook of modern diplomacy( Book )

24 editions published between 2013 and 2015 in English and held by 357 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"At a time when diplomatic practices and the demands imposed on diplomats are changing quite radically, and many foreign ministries feel they are being left behind, there is a need to understand the various forces that are affecting the profession. Diplomacy remains a salient activity in today's world in which the basic authoritative actor is still the state. At the same time, in some respects the practice of diplomacy is undergoing significant, even radical, changes to the context, tools, actors and domain of the trade. These changes spring from the changing nature of the state, the changing nature of the world order, and the interplay between them. One way of describing this is to say that we are seeing increased interaction between two forms of diplomacy, "club diplomacy" and "network diplomacy". The former is based on a small number of players, a highly hierarchical structure, based largely on written communication and on low transparency; the latter is based on a much larger number of players (particularly of civil society), a flatter structure, a more significant oral component, and greater transparency. The Oxford Handbook of Modern Diplomacy is an authoritative reference tool for those studying and practicing modern diplomacy. It provides an up-to-date compendium of the latest developments in the field. Written by practitioners and scholars, the Handbook describes the elements of constancy and continuity and the changes that are affecting diplomacy. The Handbook goes further and gives insight to where the profession is headed in the future. Co-edited by three distinguished academics and former practitioners, the Handbook provides comprehensive analysis and description of the state of diplomacy in the 21st Century and is an essential resource for diplomats, practitioners and academics."--Publisher's website

Niche diplomacy : middle powers after the Cold War by Andrew F Cooper( Book )

14 editions published between 1997 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 297 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume examines the distinctive pattern of middle power diplomacy. Special attention is given in this analysis to the way in which middle powers have concentrated their diplomatic activity on a segmented basis. Rather than trying to cover the map, this category of countries has preferred to target selected niches on both a functional and geographical basis. The volume focuses on a number of case studies to illustrate this from a comparative perspective, with reference to the behaviour of non-traditional as well as traditional self-identified middle powers. These cases include Canada and peacekeeping, Norway's diplomacy with respect to the Middle East peace settlement, middle power initiatives on South Africa, Australia's search for a regional 'niche, ' regionalism in the Americas with special reference to Mexico and Argentina, and the diplomatic strategies pursued by Malaysia, Turkey and South Africa. The volume combines detailed studies by specialist scholars with a concerned attempt to draw up a conceptual framework to explain the character and the contribution of middle powers in the operation of the international system."--Jacket
