New Publication in the GEM Book Series (Routledge)

[16-04-2018] The GEM (Globalisation, Europe, Multilateralism) Series’ edited volumes, monographs and textbooks all aim at contributing to further innovation in the fields of European Integration and International Studies. The latest addition to the series, ‘Multiple Modernities and Good Governance’ (edited by Thomas Meyer, José and Luís de Sales Marques) represents the first discussion from a political science perspective of the concept of Multiple Modernities in three dimensions. First taking stock of the discussions of the concept itself, it then connects it to more recently developed analytical and normative concepts that concretize it, before finally opening up a discussion about its implications and consequences for the political dimension.

Written by outstanding scholars in the field, the book addresses four principal concepts – Good Society, Good Governance, Human Security and Varieties of Capitalism. It determines whether and to what degree these concepts enable us to discover the commonalities and differences that distinguish the emerging multiple modernities in our time with respect to their political implications and consequences.
