European civil society and human rights advocacy by Markus Thiel( Book )

9 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 29 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Adherence to basic human rights norms has become an expected feature of states throughout the world. In Europe, the promotion and protection of human rights through national governments has been enhanced by the diversity of intergovernmental organizations committed to this cause. The latest addition to the continent's rights organizations arrived ten years ago when, based on the EU's Lisbon Treaty, the Fundamental Rights Agency (FRA) was created as a functional institution to highlight and improve human rights within EU member states. In contrast to other regulatory agencies in the EU, the FRA provides a research-based advisory function for EU institutions and legislation and performs a public-diplomacy function in promoting fundamental rights across EU member states. The linking of civil society with internal rights policies has yet produced very little scholarship. Markus Thiel offers an analysis in the context of Europe's proliferating human rights challenges, like the current refugee crises and the nationalist responses that geopolitical changes have provoked. European Civil Society and Human Rights Advocacy examines the interaction between the FRA and hundreds of transnational civil society organizations working with and on behalf of vulnerable populations in EU member states and probes the high normative standards of human rights attainment and transnational participatory governance in the EU

The Limits of Transnationalism : Collective Identities and EU Integration by Markus Thiel( )

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

"This book examines the state of transnational identification among citizens in the EU as a result of post-Maastricht integration measures, such as the completion of the Common Market, the introduction of the Euro, the initiation of the Common Foreign and Security Policy and the Constitutional debate. Public opinion, interview and print-media analyses in the United Kingdom, Ireland and Germany confirm the limited effects of EU policy changes to the extent that national political cultures and mass media orientations are compatible with the goals of EU integration. This book serves as a valuable tool for students of European politics and society" (4ème de couv.)
