Mechanisms of OECD governance : international incentives for national policy-making?( Book )

18 editions published between 2010 and 2014 in English and held by 371 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume is devoted to the analysis of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) and its role in international and national policy making. On its 50th anniversary, the OECD enjoys widely acknowledged international standing. Despite this, it has so far remained a rarely researched and analyzed organization. This book is thus a pioneering work: it fills a long-overdue gap in presenting a theoretically guided and empirically rich analysis of the OECD as a political actor. It explores its role in political processes through various case studies in a variety of policy fields. By conceptualizing the contributions to this volume around the concept of mechanisms of governance, it explores how and to what extent the OECD provides international incentives for national policy making. The volume collects a set of ten contributions on the OECD and its activities in core fields of its commitment as an 'economic organization', such as economic and labor market policy, tax issues, finance or financial crime, but also in complementary fields in which the organization is active today despite its original economic focus, such as education, biotechnology, health, family issues, and migration. The case studies presented in this volume are an interdisciplinary collection from different academic perspectives, including political science, international relations, law, and organization studies. The book provides a current and wide-ranging analysis of this organization including its constraints and opportunities in policy making.--
Global pathways to education : cultural spheres, networks, and international organizations by Kerstin Martens( )

9 editions published between 2021 and 2022 in English and Undetermined and held by 358 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this open access volume, the editors identify the trajectories and patterns displayed by education systems and investigate the causes of change from a global and historical perspective. The contributors argue that the emergence and development of education systems can be traced back to inherent national factors, as well as to the international diffusion of ideas. The research presented in this volume is a wide-ranging analysis and explanation of the dynamics of emergence, diffusion, and change in relation to state education systems. The chapters offer an empirical investigation into whether the global diffusion of Western-rational educational content and organizational forms occurs as expected by neoinstitutionalist theory, or whether culturally specific developmental paths dominate in different parts of the world. The book will be of interest to students and researchers in various social science disciplines, including social policy, education, sociology, political science, international relations, organizational theory, and economics.

NGOs and the United Nations : institutionalization, professionalization and adaptation by Kerstin Martens( Book )

18 editions published between 2005 and 2014 in English and held by 330 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Non-governmental organizations (NGOs) have become an integral part of the United Nations. As a result of their growing recognition as influential actors in global affairs, the UN sought to strengthen its relationship with NGOs and created diverse ways of bringing them into its system. This book explores how NGOs responded to this increase in opportunities for participation with the UN. The case studies include some of the most renowned players on the international scene, such as Amnesty International, Human Rights Watch, the International League for Human Rights, CARE International, the International Save the Children Alliance and Oxfam International."--Jacket
Actors and agency in global social governance by Alexandra Kaasch( )

11 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 230 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Actors and Agency in Global Social Governance seeks to advance our understanding of the global dimension of social policy by applying the notion of global social governance on actors, their relations to each other, and their pathways as well as their footprints of influence in the specific policy fields of social concern in which they are active. Focusing on a broad array of individual and corporate global social policy actors, ranging from internationally operating intergovernmental organizations to state formations and NGOs, the contributions to this volume draw a fuller picture of agency in global social policy than what current accounts provide. It considers the multiple facets of individual scope and legitimacy for a particular actor in conjunction with the configuration of global social governance as characterised by multi-centred and multi-scaled obstacles as well as diverse forms of collaboration. The volume studies the contextualised actor's range and power in designing, shaping, and facilitating various global social policies. Thus, the contributions discuss the role of particular (corporate) actors within global social policy structures and assess the impact of a number of key organizations, states, groups, and individuals in the governance of global social policy. At the same time, a variety of social policy fields in which these actors are involved are addressed, including labour market issues, family policy, health policy, education policy, migration issues, and global (re)distribution via various forms of development aid or remittances.--

Internationalization of education policy : a new constellation of statehood in education? by Kerstin Martens( )

10 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 163 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Education systems in Europe have been undergoing profound changes within the last few years. New actors, procedures, and arenas of policymaking have emerged which strongly affect today's education systems. Although traditionally assumed to be a genuinely 'national' policy field, international initiatives and programmes - among the most prominent ones being the PISA study for secondary education and the Bologna Process for higher education - have triggered fundamental reforms in many countries. This book focuses on educational outcomes and actors' reactions on internationalization. Including quantitative evaluation of a large set of OECD countries as well as seven qualitative case studies (Germany, France, England, Spain, Switzerland, USA, and China), Internationalization of Education Policy provides timely insights into a dynamic and highly contested policy field"--
Wohlfahrtspolitik im 21. Jahrhundert neue Wege der Forschung by K Armingeon( Book )

3 editions published in 2013 in German and held by 104 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In der OECD-Welt wird etwa ein Viertel des gesamten Bruttoinlandsprodukts und knapp die Hälfte der Staatsausgaben für den Sozialstaat, also die Sicherung gegen zentrale Lebensrisiken, verwendet. Deutschland gehört dabei zur Spitzengruppe, widmet dem jedoch kaum Forschungsenergien. Die Leistungen des Sozialstaats sind für eine immer größer werdende Zahl von Menschen überlebenswichtig und seine Reformen prägen heute den politischen Alltag. Angesichts seiner vielfältigen Herausforderungen - etwa durch den Wandel der Bildungs- und Arbeitswelt sowie der Familienstrukturen und durch massive demographische Veränderungen - muss dem Sozialstaat künftig nachhaltig größere Aufmerksamkeit in Wissenschaft und Forschung gelten. Andernfalls wird>>Sozialpolitik im Blindflug<<normal und Sicherungserfolg zufällig. In dieser Denkschrift werden die anstehenden Herausforderungen bilanziert und auf breiter Front neue Perspektiven für eine thematische und analytische Neuausrichtung der Sozialpolitikforschung vorgeschlagen

Comparing governance of international organisations the EU, the OECD and educational policy( Book )

2 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

How do international organisations (IOs) influence domestic policymaking? In the field of educational policy, IOs increasingly play an important role in shaping national debates and policies. Comparative studies as conducted by the OECD, for example, reveal strengths and weaknesses of individual educational systems and raise questions of "best practice". International initiatives such as the EU's Bologna Process even compel national policy makers to restructure their systems in such a way that students and staff will be able to move with more ease between systems and receive fair recognition of their qualifications in the near future. The aim of this study is to explore the forms of governance through which international organisations exercise influence on national policymaking. For this purpose, the EU and the OECD serve as case studies since these two organisations have recently been particularly active players in educational policy. Drawing on institutionalist approaches, an analytic grid will be designed in this study for systematically investigating the forms of governance as exercised by international organisations. The findings show that IOs have the most capacities to form and guide national policymaking through their distinctive ability to co-ordinate initiatives and to shape the ideas in a policy field, such as education. -- OECD ; EU ; Educational Policy ; International Organisation ; Governance
