    Palgrave Macmillan 2010; US$ 105.00

    Princeton University Press 2009; US$ 41.95 US$ 33.56

    Since they were pioneered in the 1970s by Robert Keohane and others, the broad range of neoliberal institutionalist theories of international relations have grown in importance.

  • Women's NGOs In Pakistanby Afshan Jafar

    Palgrave Macmillan 2011; US$ 100.00

    How do NGOs overcome the suspicion and perception of them as Western agents? What means do they employ to convince people that, contrary to common perceptions, they are not there to "lead women astray from Islam," nor are they going to make them "shameless"? And how, in a country like Pakistan, where poverty, violence, fundamentalism, and ethnic conflict... more...

    Palgrave Macmillan 2012; US$ 100.00

    Friesen demonstrates how transnational CSOs and NGOs can influence the context in which international political decisions are made. She shows how, by reframing the issues, the transnational campaign for the cancellation of third world debt altered the dominant discourse, shifted the agenda and thereby shaped political outcomes. more...
