Introduction to Part III: Multilevel governance and neo-liberalization and

Chapter


Abstract


  • Part III highlights how the neo-liberal project of extending new constitutionalism

    has not simply resulted in the decline of the significance of

    the state but rather its transformation, a shift that is linked to a more general

    global redefinition of politics and multilevel governance. The main

    themes of Part III consist of:

    1. The need to go beyond conventional understandings of the 'global'

    and the 'national' as reflecting opposed political logics under conditions

    of neo-liberal globalization and the new constitutionalism.

    2. How this allows for an exploration of the shifting forms and roles

    of the state, including the privatization of norm-making authority, in

    'new geographies of power'.

    3. The 'variegated' development of neo-liberalizing market-disciplining

    'rule-regimes'.

    4. The centralization and decentralization of policy capabilities in the

    neo-liberal projects for federalism and multilateral governance, operating

    at local, national, regional and global levels.
