Free Trade Agreements and Global Labour Governance - The European Union's Trade-Labour Linkage in a Value Chain World... Free Trade Agreements and Global Labour Governance - The European Union's Trade-Labour Linkage in a Value Chain World (Hardcover)

Exploring the contentious relationship between trade and labour, this book looks at the impact of the EU's 'new generation' free trade agreements on workers. Drawing upon extensive original research, including over 200 interviews with key actors across the EU and its trading partners, it considers the effectiveness of the trade-labour linkage in an era of global value chains. The EU believes trade can work for all, claiming that labour provisions in its free trade agreements ensure that economic growth and high labour standards go hand-in-hand. Yet whether these actually make a difference to workers is strongly contested. This book explains why labour provisions have been profoundly limited in the EU's agreements with the CARIFORUM group, South Korea and Moldova. It also shows how the provisions were mismatched with the most pressing workplace concerns in the key export industries of sugar, automobiles and clothing, and how these concerns were exacerbated by the agreements' commercial provisions. This pioneering approach to studying the trade-labour linkage provides insights into key debates on the role of civil society in trade governance, the relationship between public and private labour regulation, and the progressive possibilities for trade policy in the twenty-first century. This book will appeal to research scholars, post-graduate students, trade policy practitioners, policy researchers allied to labour movements, and informed activists.

How do we understand the dramatic changes that are transforming the societies of eastern and central Europe and those "peripheral" countries witnessing a shift to the market? This text examines this and other questions through a variety of studies of the complex political, economic and social transformations occurring in eastern Europe and Central Europe. Contributions from geographers, economists, sociologists, feminists, planners and scholars of international studies unravel the complexity of change in post-communism by examining: theoretical perspectives on transition, industrial and regional restructuring, agrarian change, de-collectivisation and rural struggles, and gendered transformations in a variety of eastern and central European contexts. Examining transformations using a variety of perspectives from critical political economy and cultural theory, the work provides both an empirical map of the dimensions of post-Communism and raises important theoretical issues about how we interpret these changes.

This volume reveals how a fledgling Fabian journal came to play a key role in the growth of the modern Labour Party. Placing the early New Statesman in the context of its eight turbulent decades as a flagship of the Left, the book compares the magazine's first journalists with later generations of editors and writers. By drawing upon interviews with survivors, and a wide range of public and personal papers, the author rediscovers the early - and lasting - importance of the British Left's best-known and most resilient magazine.

Grassroots Innovation Movements (Hardcover): Adrian. Smith, Mariano Fressoli, Dinesh Abrol, Elisa Arond, Adrian Ely Grassroots Innovation Movements (Hardcover)

Innovation is increasingly invoked by policy elites and business leaders as vital for tackling global challenges like sustainable development. Often overlooked, however, is the fact that networks of community groups, activists, and researchers have been innovating grassroots solutions for social justice and environmental sustainability for decades. Unencumbered by disciplinary boundaries, policy silos, or institutional logics, these 'grassroots innovation movements' identify issues and questions neglected by formal science, technology and innovation organizations. Grassroots solutions arise in unconventional settings through unusual combinations of people, ideas and tools. This book examines six diverse grassroots innovation movements in India, South America and Europe, situating them in their particular dynamic historical contexts. Analysis explains why each movement frames innovation and development differently, resulting in a variety of strategies. The book explores the spaces where each of these movements have grown, or attempted to do so. It critically examines the pathways they have developed for grassroots innovation and the challenges and limitations confronting their approaches. With mounting pressure for social justice in an increasingly unequal world, policy makers are exploring how to foster more inclusive innovation. In this context grassroots experiences take on added significance. This book provides timely and relevant ideas, analysis and recommendations for activists, policy-makers, students and scholars interested in encounters between innovation, development and social movements.

Legendary Iron Maiden guitarist takes you to the final frontier of fishing. Welcome to the world of Adrian Smith, playing his Jackson guitar onstage to millions - while behind the scenes he explores far-flung rivers, seas and lakes, waterways and weirs, in a fearless quest for fishing nirvana. Hooked on the angling adrenaline rush since first catching perch from East London canals on outings with his father, Adrian grew up to be in one of Rock's most iconic bands. On tour, his gear went with him. The fish got bigger. The adventures more extreme. In Monsters of River and Rock you'll hear about his first sturgeon: a whopping 100-pounder from the roaring rapids of Canada's Fraser River that nearly wiped him out mid-Maiden tour. Then there's the close shave with a shark off the Virgin Islands whilst wading waist-deep for bonefish. Not to mention an enviable list of specimen coarse fish from the UK. Come to the riverbank with Adrian and cast a line on the wild side.
