Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The State of Interdependence explores the implications of globalization for constitutional governance. The study examines how globalization, viewed as a process increasing the level of transnational interdependence between actors, is shaping modern governance in the public interest. It uses the Internet's interdependency-imposing nature as starting point for the inquiry since the Internet is the most important and inclusive manifestation of the globalization phenomenon in terms of transnational interdependence.

Interdependence gives rise to a variety of challenges to modern governance. Institutionally, the main challenge is how to accommodate highly diverse views into globally uniform policies. Ideologically, it poses the challenge of how to export fundamental values worldwide. Economically, it raises the question of how to use national economic policies to stimulate innovation on a global scale.

The main thesis of this study is that an interdependent context has far-reaching implications for today's democratic constitutional governance and ultimately calls for a re-examination of our philosophical understanding of decision-making in the public interest in terms of legitimacy, accountability and representation.

The interdisciplinary nature of this work makes it particularly suited to academic scholars and policy makers interested in foundational questions regarding the nature of globalization, governance and the changing role of the State under conditions of interdependency. The Internet-based case studies are likely to appeal to a Law and ICT interested readership. The book is easily accessible and is self-contained in terms of technical expertise.

Synopsis:

The State of Interdependence explores the changing role of the state as a constitutional democracy in the light of the increased interdependency in cross-border activity that characterises the globalisation process. The internet serves as the instrument for investigating the effects of globalisation on the state's ability to fulfil its constitutional commitments and responsibilities. Exploring the various ways in which the USA attempts to regulate and influence the internet highlights the implications an interdependent context has on the changing role of the state in modern society. This interdisciplinary book combines legal, political science and economic approaches, and its case-study component focuses on US information policies relating to (1) the governance of the internet's domain name system, (2) global standard-setting processes, (3) the exporting of values abroad, and (4) the development of national innovative network policies.
