Mobile Government: An Emerging Direction in E-government

IGI Publishing 2007 | 300 | ISBN: 1591408849 | PDF | 3 Mb

Mobility is no longer a technological revolution. It is more about how businesses and governments can provide a better social infrastructure through mobile applications and services. While e-government was an important step taken by many governments, provision of services through mobile technologies is now inevitable. Public demand for mobility, the efficiency and productivity gains of the public sector through mobility, lead to a natural move from e-Government to m-Government. Mobile Government: An Emerging Direction in e-Government provides selected examples of current developments from various countries in terms of technology, applications and services, and various real world m-government examples, their evaluations, challenges and opportunities. Mobile Government: An Emerging Direction in e-Government applies to various groups, including m-Government practitioners and researchers, government officials, policy makers and mobile IT solution providers in the areas of e-government, mobile business, mobile internet and public administration. This innovative publication contains introductory knowledge on m-Government, and then moves on to a relatively deeper examination of various applications, that are significant in terms of current and future developments in m-Government. ...

The Political Economy of Joining the European Union. Iceland's Position at the Beginning of the 21st Century

Magnus Bjarnason, "The Political Economy of Joining the European Union. Iceland's Position at the Beginning of the 21st Century"

Iceland can consider its participation in the European Economic Area (EEA) as an associate membership of the European Union (EU). Under the EEA agreement, Iceland participates in the EU free movement of capital, persons, services and industrial goods, along with cooperation in social policy and related fields. However, Iceland does not participate in the EU Common Fisheries Policy (CFP), the EU Common Agricultural Policy (CAP), the European Economic and Monetary Union (EMU), or in the EU Customs Union. This dissertation studies the effects of full EU membership on Iceland's Political Economy. It gives an overview of the EU, EEA and the European Free Trade Association (EFTA), offering thorough analyses of the EMU, Agricultural Policy and Fisheries Policy. The dissertation also reviews the pros and cons of EU membership. A decision to join the EU is in the end a question of political choice and this dissertation is intended to make such a choice as informed as possible.

Climate Change Policy in the European Union: Confronting the Dilemmas of Mitigation and Adaptation?

2010 | 304 | ISBN: 0521196124 | PDF | 1 Mb

The European Union (EU) has emerged as a leading governing body in the international struggle to govern climate change. The transformation that has occurred in its policies and institutions has profoundly affected climate change politics at the international level and within its 27 Member States. But how has this been achieved when the EU comprises so many levels of governance, when political leadership in Europe is so dispersed and the policy choices are especially difficult? Drawing on a variety of detailed case studies spanning the interlinked challenges of mitigation and adaptation, this volume offers an unrivalled account of how different actors wrestled with the complex governance dilemmas associated with climate policy making. Opening up the EU's inner workings to non-specialists, it provides an unparalleled perspective on the unique way that the EU governs, as well as exploring its ability to maintain a leading position in international climate change politics. ...

From Reform to Revolution: The Demise of Communism in China and the Soviet Union

From Reform to Revolution: The Demise of Communism in China and the Soviet Union
From Reform to Revolution: The Demise of Communism in China and the Soviet Union
Harvard University Press 1998 | 264 | ISBN: 067432563X | PDF | 14
The demise of communism in the former Soviet Union and the massive political and economic changes in China are two major transformations of the 20th century. Two central questions are emerging: Why did different communist systems experience different patterns of transition? Why did partial reforms in the Soviet Union and China turn into revolutions? This analytical and empirical study shows that patterns of regime transition in communist states depend on the countries' pre-existing social structures and political and economic institutions. Minxin Pei identifies the rapid mobilization of previously excluded social groups during the reform phase as the most powerful explanation for the revolutionary outcome of initially limited political and economic reforms in the Soviet Union and China. Pei uses comparative data to analyze the different routes of transition to democracy and a market economy in the Soviet Union, China, and, to a lesser extent, other former communist states in Eastern Europe and Asia. The theory is empirically tested in four case studies of changes in China and the Soviet Union - two on the development of the private sector in each country and two on the liberalization of the mass media. The author concludes with statements about regime transition from communism. He rejects the idealistic notion that democratization can, by itself, remove the structural obstacles to economic transformation, and he sees high economic and political costs as unavoidable in transition from communism along either the Soviet or the Chinese path. In comparing Soviet and Chinese transition costs, however, he implicitly endorses the evolutionary changes taking place in China and expresses strong doubt about the revolutionary changes that have occurred in the former Soviet Union. ...

New to this edition is a chapter on Albania. Leading scholars provide the historical context for the current situation of each country in the region.
