Global Justice Activism and Policy Reform in Europe : Understanding When Change Happens, Hardback Book

Global Justice Activism and Policy Reform in Europe : Understanding When Change Happens Hardback

Edited by Peter (UNRISD, Switzerland) Utting, Mario (University of Urbino, Italy) Pianta, Anne (UNRISD, Switzerland) Ellersiek

Description

Civil society activism around issues of global justice has proliferated in Europe during the past two decades.

Has such contestation and advocacy made a difference?

This book examines whether and how the organizations, networks and campaigns involved have attained their policy objectives in the areas of debt relief, international trade, international taxation and corporate accountability.

The analysis also considers the relationship between national and transnational activism.

By comparing variations in the "activism-policy nexus" in France, Italy and the United Kingdom, it seeks to understand how such interaction and policy outcomes vary in different institutional and political contexts.
