Abstract

Wie lässt sich das Handeln der Regierung in modernen Gesellschaften theoretisch fassen? Schon die Autoren der amerikanischen Verfassung haben die Notwendigkeit erkannt, die Exekutivgewalt einzuhegen und sie mit der Legislative zu verschränken. Dieses Prinzip gilt bis heute, doch in modernen Gesellschaften kommt hinzu, dass die Zivilgesellschaft und ihre Medien mit Regierung und Verwaltung auf vielfältige Weise miteinander verbunden sind. Die Frage ist, wie der moderne Staat als wichtigster Akteur der Politik mit der Regierung als seinem stärksten Instrument legitime Ziele erreichen kann. Der Autor zeigt die Interdependenzen zwischen Regierung, Zivilgesellschaft, Verbänden und Parlament auf und demonstriert anhand verschiedener Beispiele, dass die Exekutive kein abgehobenes Eigenleben führt. Ein zentrales Kapitel ist die Beschreibung des Innenlebens der Ministerialbürokratie. Gerade der Einblick in die täglichen Routinen im Umgang mit der Komplexität einzelner Inputs ist aufschlussreich für die Frage nach den Möglichkeiten und Grenzen politischer Gestaltung.

Abstract

Niemand weiß, was die Zukunft bringt. Trotzdem oder gerade deshalb kommunizieren wir ständig über das Thema Zukunft – ob privat oder in den Massenmedien. Der Autor untersucht diese Kommunikation und rückt zwei Bezugspunkte in den Mittelpunkt: die funktionale Differenzierung der modernen Gesellschaft und die Inklusion der Bevölkerung in die Funktionssysteme wie Politik, Wirtschaft, Erziehung. Wie werden diese Themen mit Blick auf die Gesellschaft der Zukunft behandelt und welche Entscheidungsimpulse ergeben sich daraus?

Abstract

During the last 30 years, the governments of many Western countries have repeatedly called for an end to welfare. While the virtue of this goal and the means of achieving it continue to be debated in politics, much of contemporary social science research assumes that, in fact, the end of the welfare state has already occurred. The authors of this volume hope to contribute to a clearer understanding of how, where and to what extent welfare state settings really have changed since the 1980s. Their work examines questions of change and continuity while exploring various welfare practices in the Western world.

Debate among politicians and academics alike vacillates as to whether the euro is the crowning achievement of a half-century of European integration efforts, or now constitutes a force that threatens to drive European Union member states apart. This book introduces both the political and economic forces at play in the eurozone crisis that have shaped this debate and changed the face of European integration.

Abstract

This book focuses on the global financial crisis of 2008-2009 and its implications for democracy. Why and how did the crisis come about? Are there any instructive lessons to be drawn from comparisons with the Great Depression of the 1930s? What are the democratic response mechanisms to cope with serious crises? Do they work? Is China a new trend setter? Do values matter? Are global democratic rules a possibility? These are some of the key questions addressed in the volume.

Abstract

This book depicts the sophisticated relationship between Russia and China as a pragmatic one, a political marriage of convenience. Yet at the same time the relationship is stable, and will remain so. After all, bilateral relations are usually based on pragmatic interests and the pursuit of these interests is the very essence of foreign policy. And, as often happens in life, the most long-lasting marriages are those based on convenience. The highly complex, complicated, ambiguous and yet, indeed, successful relationship between Russia and China throughout the past 25 years is difficult to grasp theoretically. Russian and Chinese elites are hard-core realists in their foreign policies, and the neorealist school in international relations seems to be the most adequate one to research Sino-Russian relations.
