Bowker Data Service Summary
Focusing on the area of how norms are transferred from the international to the domestic level, this book addresses key research questions of relevance to both international relations and democratisation. An innovative theoretical framework is offered for comparing socialisation and norm change.
Description for Bookstore
This volume offers a timely and important study on how norms are transferred from the international into the domestic domain through processes of socialization. It seeks to understand the process of change in post-Cold War Europe from a divided continent into a community with a common identity, based on shared values and ideas. It also offers an explanation for why the process of change has occurred easily in some countries and with more difficulty or not at all in others.
