Abstract: It is widely argued that European leaders wishing to improve the competitiveness of their economies must emulate the harsh and regressive neo-liberal policies associated with the Ronald Reagan, George W. Bush, and Margaret Thatcher. The choice is between neo-liberal reform and no reform. My paper challenges this gloomy understanding. Between neo-liberal reform and no reform, a number of European countries have pursued a course of what I call "progressive liberal" reform. By "progressive liberalism," I mean policies that appropriate the goals of neo-liberalism, but pursue these goals in a manner that preserves or even enhances equality and protections for the disadvantaged. After reviewing the challenges that economic liberalization poses to progressive parties, my paper examines progressive liberal reforms in three areas: reductions in social spending, tax cuts, and labor market flexibilization. For each case, I proceed in four steps: 1) I first define the traditional leftist position that opposes liberalizing reform; 2) I next present the neo-liberal position, which favors liberalizing reform with regressive distributional implications; 3) I then show that the liberalizing reform in question harbors a progressive potential; 4) Finally, I describe how the reform has been implemented in practice, in a particular European context, so as to capture many of the benefits associated with neo-liberalism, while safeguarding progressive values and the needs of low-income and disadvantaged groups.

Abstract: War diffusion is a neglected topic in the trade-conflict debate. I draw on the insights from the economic liberalism literature and show that trading partners of the participants in an ongoing war, are more likely to intervene to settle the conflict.

"The Exercise of Sovereignty by the Neo-Liberal Post-Modern State: Extending the National Security Space through the Internationalization of the Domestic Liberal Subject" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the International Studies Association 48th Annual Convention, Hilton Chicago, CHICAGO, IL, USA, Feb 28, 2007 <Not Available>. 2020-01-25 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p181366_index.html>

Abstract: Contrary to the assertion that state sovereignty is gradually diminishing in the new era of globalization, this paper argues that the territorial sovereign nation-state re-inscribes its sovereign authority through the extension of its security space beyond national borders and onto non-state actors through the criminalization of a multitude of transnational behaviors. In this sense, the nation-state attempts to manage and control issues, sites, and behaviors of the ?international? that traditionally fell outside its area of sovereign control. It is also argued in this paper that the manner in which this practicing of sovereignty beyond the legitimizing space of the nation-state occurs resembles the respective penal regimes of the exporting countries, mainly those of the post-industrial liberal democracies (Kanishka Jayasuriya, 2002). It is argued, then, that it is through the reconstitution of the liberal subject in these post-industrial democracies via their respective penal regimes, and their accepted moral codes regarding right and wrong behaviors at the domestic level, that the sovereign nation confers upon itself the right and responsibility to similarly secure the international space from deviant behaviors.

Abstract: In “The Politics of Faith and The Politics of Scepticism”, Michael Oakeshott sketches a conceptual distinction between two styles concerning the activity of governing. The first comprehends the State as a civil association (societas), where the individuals are connected through the formal recognition of the same legitimate authority. The authority emanates from the non-instrumental rules that compose the public interest (respublica). Thus, to govern is to maintain the order, to guarantee the execution of the lex. In the other pole, the Politics of Faith appears as the style of an enterprise association (universitas), where the citizens are identified through the same comprehensive purpose; for that modality, to govern means to promote this purpose. From the distinction between societas and universitas, Oakeshott concludes that social and economic rights are perfectionist interests that violate the neutrality of the respublica. Therefore, starting from the Chantal Mouffe’s critic, that Oakeshott removes the political dimension of the respublica, this paper aims to establish a dialogue between the “radical democracy” and the “liberal conservatism”. It defends that the Politics of Scepticism not necessarily rebut state intervention, that could be included as a form of improvement to the maintenance of order. Firstly, because the consensus about the authority, in a liberal perspective, do not necessarily imply a connection with economic liberalism. Second, the distinction between “perfection” (in the Politics of Faith) and “improvement” (in the Politics of Scepticism) is too ambiguous to affirm, as Oakeshott presumes, the absolute incompatibility of the state intervention with the scepticism.

Abstract: This paper examines the way in which material interests and appropriateness that derive from the battle between the domestic coalitions that centred on the developmental state/state-intervention on the one hand and the neo-liberal model of economic development on the other have served to shape the institutional development of East Asian regionalism. The argument is made that the competition both within specific regional institutions and the battle among institutions to determine the direction which East Asian regionalism will take is heavily influenced by the domestic competition over economic policies. The evolution of these policies will be laid out and tied to the emergence of specific regional economic institutions and to the competing visions of regional development held around the region.
