Kurz notiert: »New Modes of Shaping Social Change?«

1. August 2017

Ende Juli ist der von Bielefelder Kolleginnen und Kollegen herausgegebene Band »Society, Regulation and Governance New Modes of Shaping Social Change?« bei Edward Elgar Publishing erschienen. Darin finden sich Beiträge von A.-L. Beaussier, A. Bora, E. Carmel, M. Huber, D. Kuchenbuch, M. Mölders, P. Münte, R. Paul, H. Rothstein, J.-F. Schrape und L. Viellechner.

This book brings together sociologists, political scientists, legal scholars and historians to produce an interdisciplinary critical evaluation of alleged ›new modes‹ of social change, specifically: risk, publics and participation. It makes three key contributions by:

  • offering a consolidation and re-appraisal of a debate that has become increasingly vague with its academic and political proliferation
  • identifying a uniting conceptual-analytical core between regulation and governance which explains the adaptability and innovation-mindedness of processes of ›shaping society‹
  • re-focusing on the ›essence‹ of regulation and governance approaches – intentional modes of social change.

Reinlesen lässt sich in den gelungenen Band auf ElgarOnline; mein Kapitel findet sich in einer frühen Version als Discussion Paper auf EconStor.
