Is the state weakened by globalization? Does national economic policy converge under the competitive pressure of globalization? Who is gaining or losing from globalization, and why? For the last ten years, these questions have been in the focus of the public debate and political science research. Meanwhile research has produced substantial empirical analyses on many aspects of globalization leading to a substantiation of some arguments and to a weakening of others. In view of the increasingly differentiated research on globalization, a host of international experts in the ﬁeld are brought together to systematically present the core ﬁelds and results of research on globalization. The chapters follow an actor-centred approach and are theoretically guided empirical analyses. Each chapter presents the international state of the art of research on globalization on the respective issue area as well as the individual author’s cutting edge. The areas covered in this volume include an analytical overview on globalization research, ﬁscal policy adjustment to globalization, tax competition, international monetary policy, transnational policy regimes, governance through private business and public–private partnerships, developing countries, regionalism and trade liberalization in transformation countries. For each of these issues, the chapters introduce the relevant theoretical approaches and analyse the empirical ﬁndings. This volume will be of interest across a number of related subject areas including international political economy, international relations, comparative politics, international economics and area studies. Stefan A. Schirm is Professor of Political Science at the University of Bochum, Germany, where he holds the Chair for International Relations.
