Politics, Economics and Global Governance: The European Dimensions (PEGGED) (2008-2012)
Politics, Economics and Global Governance: The European Dimensions (PEGGED) (2008-2012) Increasing global integration processes involve a rapid intensification of cross-border and cross-sectoral economic linkages, affecting distributional patterns and the costs/benefits for the full range of economic agents and constituencies. Furthermore, these linkages have often dramatic effects on the preferences, interests and capacities of a wide range of actors in the global market, across institutional layers (national, regional and international). Such an evolution challenges the sustainability of existing political and social structures and systems of governance, posing important dilemmas in terms of legitimacy and sustainability. The project is organised in four work packages: international macroeconomic governance; globalization and financial stability; the integration of markets for trade in goods and services; and migration and the mobility of labour.
