About This Book

Globalization is moving fast, impacting on the life of all nations with accelerating force.In this new study Ronnie Lipschutzshows how it is being handled by specific groups seeking positive outcomes for the people and causes they represent.

Globalization, Governmentality and Global Politics details how the widespread failure of states and corporations to regulate the impact of increased globalization has given rise to non-governmental organizations and movements, aiming to influence corporations regarding social responsibilities and addresskey issues such ashuman rights, environmental destruction, unhealthy working conditions and child labour.

Assessingthe effectiveness of these efforts, it examinesboth the newmovements and the issues they are tackling.With threekey case studies on the clothing industry, sustainable forestry and corporate social responsibility, it explores the tensions between politics and management, examining the theoretical implications of regulation for politics, citizenship and the state. Finally, it takes a fresh look at what is to be done, calling for a return to politics centred on the direct participation of the individual in the social choices that affect quality of life, working conditions andthe global future.
