particular narrative. Anti-power state Power state The internal dimension of the idea of the state is then presented as being a projection of its domestic definition with examples such as the welfare state, the socialist state and the liberal-capitalist state. Here consideration within each narrative is given to attitudes towards globalisation and liberalisation, the preferred role of the state in the economy and the narratives’ approach to international economic governance. Drawing this analysis together should offer a well-defined picture of each narrative

within broader trends of political and economic governance evident in the country. The chapter offers a historical account beginning in the period immediately after Zambia's independence in 1964, moving through the neo-liberal reforms imposed by international donors from the early 1980s to the development of alternative forms of development governance towards the end of the twentieth century and into the twenty-first. Throughout the chapter, we

polluting enterprises. The ministries in turn set standards for emission reductions for the enterprises, incorporating them into the national plans for economic and social development. Hence, the LRTAP standards were part of a more general mechanism of political and economic governance. For the most severe sources of transboundary pollution, among them the Kola Peninsula smelters, the Commission itself participated in setting the standards at the enterprise level (1998a). As reviewed in Chapter 5, a State Committee for Environmental Protection was created in 1988

) should be pursued –​and what kind of actors should represent Greenlandic interests –​are hotly debated in Greenlandic society (Nuttall, 2015; Wilson, 2015). Today, corporate actors are arguing for an increasing place at the table in questions of Arctic economic governance. Financial actors/​banks who lend money to key Arctic projects play an instrumental role in setting and enforcing various standards of relevance to the Arctic natural and project environment (Alto and Jaakkola, 2015). More specific to the Arctic itself, the establishment of the Arctic Economic Council

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

best judge the nature, extent and reasons for economic change in Northern Ireland since UK accession, it is necessary to appre- 38 Northern Ireland and the European Union ciate the specific dynamics of the regional economy. This chapter identifies and discusses the peculiarities and the broad challenges facing the Northern Ireland economy. The chapter also acknowledges that the introduction of devolution in 1999 occasioned some change in the manner of economic governance in Northern Ireland. This has altered Northern Ireland’s engagement with the UK, and also the

collective bargaining, such as in Greece during the post-2008 recession, protective labour market institutions can be easily dismantled. For this reason, Bosch and Lehndorff argue that a more inclusive regulatory framework needs to be anchored not only to statutory protections and minimum standards but also to strong participatory rights and discuss the scope for national actors to move towards these goals under the new European economic governance framework. Marchington and Dundon discuss the societal forces for ‘fair voice’ and the challenges workers face in liberal

NESC’s Strategy for Development agreed in 1986 formed the basis upon which the new Programme for National Recovery was negotiated by the social partners in 1987 (1999: 274–277). From this point onwards an impressively successful model of consociational socio-economic governance has been functioning in Ireland.53 In Greece on the other hand, protectionism with irresponsibly expansionist fiscal policies, was followed up to the end of 1980s, with a small stabilisation parenthesis in 1985–87 (see Katseli, 1990; Kazakos, 1992; Alogoskoufis, 1995). The last years of the

provisions on EMU they constitute the formal institutional framework for economic governance. Accordingly, the ECOFIN Council is the central decision-making body as regards the operation of the SGP. Despite this formal assignment of competences the Eurogroup de facto intervenes at all stages of the decision-making process and has developed into the virtual political centre of the operation of the SGP. As regards SGP related issues, the activities of the Eurogroup have effectively emptied out the discussions within the ECOFIN Council. The previous chapter has demonstrated
