Knowledge and Institutions

Knowledge and Institutions By Johannes Glückler
English | PDF,EPUB | 2018 | 309 Pages | ISBN : 3319753274 | 12.09 MB

This book bridges the disciplinary boundaries within the social sciences to explore the role of social institutions in shaping geographical contexts, and in creating new knowledge. It includes theorizations as well as original empirical case studies on the emergence, maintenance and change of institutions as well as on their constraining and enabling effects on innovation, entrepreneurship, art and cultural heritage, often at regional scales across Europe and North America. Rooted in the disciplines of management and organization studies, sociology, geography, political science, and economics the contributors all take comprehensive approaches to carve out the specific contextuality of institutions as well as their impact on societal outcomes. Not only does this book offer detailed insights into current debates in institutional theory, it also provides background for scholars, students, and professionals at the intersection between regional development, policy-making, and regulation.

The Poetry of Knowledge and the 'Two Cultures'

The Poetry of Knowledge and the 'Two Cultures' By John G. Fitch
English | PDF,EPUB | 2018 | 167 Pages | ISBN : 3319895591 | 2.40 MB

This book argues that poetry is compatible with systematic knowledge including science, and indeed inherent in it; it also discusses particular poems that engage with such knowledge, including those of Lucretius, Vergil, and Vita Sackville-West. The book argues that there are substantial similarities between knowledge-making and poetry-making, for example in their being shaped by language, including metaphor, and in their seeking unity in the world, under the impulse of eros and pleasure.

Negotiating the EU’s 2030 Climate and Energy Framework: Agendas, Ideas and European Interest Groups

Negotiating the EU’s 2030 Climate and Energy Framework: Agendas, Ideas and European Interest Groups By Oscar Fitch-Roy
English | PDF,EPUB | 2018 | 179 Pages | ISBN : 3319909479 | 2.92 MB

In 2014, European heads of state selected new targets for the EU as part of the 2030 climate and energy framework. These targets will guide the ambition and nature of EU policy in this area until 2030 and are likely to have important implications for Europe’s transition to a low-carbon economy. This book exposes the role of civil society and business interest groups in setting the policymaking agenda and defining the range of options for the framework. Based on a unique sample of 32 in-depth interviews with Brussels policy elites, this book casts EU interest representation in a new light. In a novel application of the ‘multiple streams approach’, sequential chapters present the problems faced by policymakers, the range of policy options available to address them and the political constraints within which policy entrepreneurs attempted to attached policies to problems.
