Ny bog

The Nation-State in Transformation: Economic Globalisation, Institutional Mediation and Political Values - Redigeret og introduceret af Michael Böss. Aarhus Universitetsforlag.

Bogen handler om den offentlige sektors betydning i forhold til den økonomiske globalisering. Den analyserer, hvordan små stater tilpasser sig det internationale marked. Den ligger således i forlængelse af den traditionen, som blev indledt af Peter J. Katzenstein i midten af 1980’erne. Ved at sætte fokus på erfaringer fra Danmark og Ireland, viser bogen, hvordan to små europæiske økonomier i årene omkring årtusindskiftet havde held med at tilpasse sig den økonomiske globalisering ved at følge deres egne ny-korporatistiske strategier og trække på egne institutioner. Bogens tese er, at institutional mediering forklarer, hvorfor nogle stater synes at have større omstillingsevne end andre Kapitler af bl.a. Francis Fukuyama, Bob Jessop, David Marsh, Georg Sørensen, Gert Tinggaard Svendsen, John A. Hall, John L. Campbell, Brian Girvin og Michael Böss. Bogen er den første i en serie “MatchPoints”-udgivelser.
