Nationalism in internationalism
Michael Holmes and Kathryn Simpson

EU member states coordinating policies and positions on a new European architecture on economic governance and the future of the single currency on an informal basis. 1 This potential new relationship is discussed by Tonra (Chapter 2), Gallagher et al. (Chapter 3) and Killian (Chapter 4). The Brexit crisis is also examined specifically in the context of Northern Ireland in the latter chapters of the

overlook both the benefits and costs associated with spatial change. Economic governance as we know it is ill-equipped to help decision-makers in the private and public sectors manage space better, which has become imperative. The image of the dynamo came to symbolize the importance of electricity and other services in the modern city. These invisible services, a form of modern labor-saving magic, run virtually automatically, or at least without the need for those who use them to intervene in their production: we do not haul water or wood, put coal in furnaces, carry out

The case of the Liberal Democrats
Craig Berry

) enforcement mechanisms are also proposed by the policy document Wealth for the World (Liberal Democrats, 2004b). Some Liberal Democrats were obviously more radical than others in regard to global economic governance. As expected, arguments about ‘universal rights’ and ‘global problems’ intermingled in Liberal Democrats’ national policy documents in relation to these reforms. More interesting is how the nature of institutions such as the UN was conceived by the Liberal Democrats. The UN, in theory and practice, is a multilateral organisation. New Labour seemed to be fairly

Liberal reform and the creation of new conflict economies
Jenny H. Peterson

privatisation remains as a key strategy in installing a liberal peace, both guiding and operational actors within the DSI initially took a very cautious approach to privatising in Kosovo. However, such cautiousness was not a function of a limited commitment to liberal ideology, but rather a fear of the legal and personal ramifications for operational staff. Once legal concerns were addressed, the commitment to free market ideologies and technologies of economic governance was revived and implemented at rapid pace. The renewed commitment to this cornerstone of neo

that Southern countries were in fact capable of endogenously managing their own economic affairs. This, combined with the dramatic economic improvements under the Lula presidency – which saw Brazil go from owing the IMF $50 billion in 2002 to loaning it $10 billion in 2009 – opened the space for Brazil’s legitimate inclusion in key economic governance institutions such as the G20 Finance and the quieter, but possibly more significant Financial Stability Forum (Armijo and Katada, 2014 ). Indeed, IMF confidence in former Brazilian macro-economic officials is such that

of pan-European solutions, was dragging its feet because it wished to exempt many of its own banks from such a regime. 11 EU anti-crisis measures have lacked substance. Often their purpose appears to be to provide sound-bites for the crisis summits held at regular intervals since the spring of 2010, or else position beleaguered leaders to overcome electoral challenges (such as the contest Angela Merkel faced in September 2013). Plans for economic governance of the EU contain bold intentions but they are invariably vague on detail. There is no architecture in place

guarantee bondholders that they will be paid back whatever the circumstances (De Grauwe, 2012 ). The shrinking discretion of European governments became crystal clear during the sovereign debt crisis (Ferrera, 2017 ; Ladi and Graziano, 2014 ; Streeck, 2014 ), a period of ‘coercive Europeanisation’ (Ladi and Graziano, 2014 ). As described in the introductory chapter, European economic governance rules were modified over this period, and the new instruments increased the EU's surveillance and enforcement capacity regarding the implementation of

competitiveness in very general terms. A key tripartite declaration of 2004, concerning competitiveness, stable employment and social cohesion, also makes no precise references to challenges related to European economic governance in eight pages of text (Gobierno de España et al. , 2004 ). As with the case of Germany, it is reasonable to attribute such lack of preparation to difficulties associated with long-term planning. It is easy to suppose in hindsight that the specific goal of competitiveness within the single currency exercised key influence on the minds of unions

relationship between democracy and development as seamless, combining democratic political processes – governance or “soft infrastructures” – with socio-economic arrangements, including “social and physical infrastructures”. These processes and arrangements are designed to protect and promote the freedoms and rights of citizens, as well as advance human development and security through broad-based, state-led allocation and distribution of social surpluses.While the thematic focus on economic governance and management, corporate governance, and socio-economic development
