Private authority and international affairs by A. Claire Cutler( )

13 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 2,273 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Governments today are too often unwilling to intervene in global commerce, and international organizations are too often unable to govern effectively. In their place, firms increasingly cooperate internationally to establish the rules and standards of behavior for themselves and for others, taking on the mantle of authority to govern specific issue areas. Are they stepping into the breach to supply needed collective goods? Or are they organizing themselves in order to prevent governments from interfering in their business? This book explores the meaning of this private international authority, both for theory and policy, through case studies of specific industries, associations, and issue areas in both contemporary and historical perspective."--Jacket

New constitutionalism and world order by Stephen Gill( )

19 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 811 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This path-breaking collection analyzes the dialectic between legal and constitutional innovations intended to inscribe corporate power and market disciplines in world order, and the potential for challenges and alternative frameworks of governance to emerge. It provides a comprehensive approach to neoliberal constitutionalism and regulation and limits to policy autonomy of states, and how this disciplines populations according to the intensifying demands of corporations and market forces in global market civilization. Contributors examine global and local public policy challenges and consider if the ongoing crises of capitalism and world order offer states and societies opportunities to challenge this loss of policy autonomy and potentially to refashion world order. Integrating approaches to governance and world order from both leading and emerging scholars, this is an innovative, indispensable source for policymakers, civil society organizations, professionals and students in law, politics, economics, sociology, philosophy and international relations"--
Canadian foreign policy and international economic regimes by A. Claire Cutler( )

14 editions published between 1992 and 2014 in English and held by 521 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As the world economy becomes increasingly interdependent, and Canada expands its role as an international commercial actor, the country's political and economic welfare will directly depend on its response to a wide range of economic regimes which govern the international economy. This book is an important and timely analysis of past and current Canadian policies towards both the formal and less formal regimes which regulate such areas as international trade and financial transactions, international service industries (shipping, air transport, and telecommunications), resources, and the environment. The authors show that Canada has exhibited a high degree of variation in its foreign policy responses which reflects the tensions among multilateral, bilateral, and unilateral policy responses, as well as between liberal and protectionist orientations. In addition, the authors point to the overwhelming influence that the United States continues to have on Canadian foreign economic policies. Written from a variety of perspectives, and including chapters by political scientists, economists, lawyers, and business and policy analysts, this book makes clearer the fascinating complexity of Canadian foreign economic policy
The politics of private transnational governance by contract by A. Claire Cutler( )

10 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in English and held by 137 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This edited volume provides critical reflections on the interplay between politics and law in an increasingly transnationalized global political economy. It focuses specifically on the emergence and operation of new forms of governance that are developing through a variety of transnational contractual practices, institutions, and laws in multiple sectors and areas of economic activity. Interdisciplinary in nature, the volume includes contributions from law, political science, sociology, and international politics, with the focus on the political foundations of transnational contract being both original and pathbreaking. Placing power at the center of the analysis, the volume reveals the heterogeneous landscape of contemporary law-making and the different kinds of politics giving rise to this form of global ordering."--Page [iii]
Changing lives : Australian volunteers in Samoa( Visual )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 136 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Samoa is leading the way for inclusive education in the Pacific. Australia's support for inclusive education is part of its commitment towards Education For All - including children with disabilities. Since 2010, the Australian Aid Program has helped almost 500 children with disabilities gain access to education in Samoa. It has also helped around 250 children with disabilities receive early intervention support. 2012 was the 40th anniversary for Australian volunteers in Samoa. The Australian Aid Program has volunteers working in government ministries, NGOs, sporting associations and private sector organizations. In this short film, you will meet four Australian volunteers providing valuable support to SENESE Inclusive Education Support Services: Caroline, Russell, Kerry and Ben. They are able to transfer their knowledge and skills to their local counterparts as well as learn more about the Pacific and expand their own skills. They are also bringing meaningful and positive change to the individual lives they touch
Corporate social responsibility and employment standards in the Maquiladoras by Danielle Grenier( )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This thesis provides a historical overview of the conventional business model for CSR as well as a more critical political economy perspective. It draws on critical scholars to help advance the understanding of the legitimating role that CSR plays in advancing private authority as a significant method of regulating corporations and the global political economy through flexible and nonbinding regulations as an alternative to state legislation. This thesis explores the development and implementation of Nike's Codes of Conduct in contract apparel factories in the Maquiladoras in Mexico. Specifically, it investigates the application of Nike's Code of Conduct to determine if the company is adhering to its own CSR policies and initiatives by focusing on Nike's internal reports. It concludes that corporate self regulation produces limited results for alleviating poor working conditions for Nike apparel contract workers in the Maquiladoras

Phoenix from the ashes or the Goose is cooked : critical reflections on liberal democracies and the neoliberal international economy by Matt Stuckenberg( )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Liberalism can be generally characterized as a political ideology that assumes the rational, self-interested nature of human beings. However, two distinct strands of liberal theory have evolved from this shared construction of the human agent, namely state-oriented and market-oriented liberalism. It will be shown that state-oriented liberalism provides the theoretical core of liberal democratic states, whereas market-oriented liberalism provides the theoretical core for the globalized market economy. This thesis will uncover a profound tension through a discussion of the new constitutional effects of the investor-state regime. Furthermore, this thesis will show that the recent changes of the investor-state regime have failed to resolve the theoretical tension between liberal democracies and the investor-state regime. And finally, this thesis argues that the only way to resolve the tension between the two strands of liberalism is to incorporate liberal democratic principles into the investor-state regime
Meta-civilization by Makonen E. G Bondoc( )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This thesis argues that the role of the United Nations' (UN) human rights regime is to constitute all peoples into a specific universal standard of civilization, which this thesis identifies as the UN meta-civilization. Meta-civilization is defined as the UN's colonial and imperial impulse to legislate, implement and enforce human rights in ways which are meant to uniquely?civilize'. Analysis of the doctrinal and theoretical foundations of international law illustrates the historical and contemporary power dynamics that enable the UN to?universalize' human rights. As a case in point, the United Nations Alliance of Civilizations (UNAoC) political dialogue highlights the UN's constitution of the meta-civilization. The case study proves the UN meta-civilization is hegemonic in its claim to universality. In the end, this analysis demonstrates that more consideration about the appropriate utility of human rights within the theories and practices of international relations and international law is required
Assessing Recent Proposals to Reform the Investment Treaty Arbitration System by Thomas A Falcone( )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Economic globalization, the liberalization of markets, and the opening of once closed societies have all heralded the remarkable emergence of the current system of investment treaty arbitration. The current system, however, has attracted significant criticism and calls for reform. This thesis reviews the historical employment of arbitration in international society and the circumstances that lead to the emergence of the current system of investor-state dispute settlement. Following this, two recent proposals for reform of the current system are outlined: the creation of an international court of investment and the implementation of appellate mechanisms for investment treaty arbitration. The thesis concludes by offering an assessment of these proposals and argues for the rejection of the proposal to replace the current system with an international investment court, but offers a cautious endorsement of appellate mechanisms
