9780521003957: Markets and Moral Regulation: Cultural Change in the European Union (Themes in European Governance)

What effect is market integration having on national cultures and social policies? Paulette Kurzer examines Finnish and Swedish alcohol policy, Dutch drug decriminalization policy, and the Irish ban on abortion. She finds that regional integration is leading to adjustments that bring abortion, drug policy, and restrictive drinking measures into closer alignment within the EU. Kurzer's conclusion is that shifts in values and attitudes, affected in part by EU market integration, are bringing about a gradual convergence in morality norms.

Review:

"This well-written book is carefully documented and richly informative..." American Journal of Sociology

"[This book] is an excellent example of how comparative public policy can be done. One of the great strengths of Kurzer's well-written and well-researched book is that she draws subtle conclusions that go no further than what the evidence bears.... Comparative public policy specialists who focus on moral regulation--and especially drug policy--need to pay attention to this book." Governance: An International Journal of Policy, Administration, and Institutions

"An important contribution to the emerging literature on Europeanization..." Perspectives on Politics

"Anyone interested in alcohol, drugs, abortion, morality, cultural change, and Europe should read this book." Foreign Affairs

Book Description CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY PRESS, United Kingdom, 2012. Paperback. Book Condition: New. New.. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.Does European integration influence national cultures and social policies? Is Europe s fabled cultural diversity diminishing? In this book, Paulette Kurzer examines these important and topical questions by comparing the Irish abortion ban, Finnish and Swedish drinking restrictions, and Dutch drug decriminalization. Employing a synthesis of constructivist and institutionalist theories, Kurzer demonstrates that domestic shifts in values and attitudes, spurred along by the impact of EC/EU market integration, are in fact bringing about a convergence in European morality norms. Alcohol control policies are forced to liberalize, the Irish abortion proscription is being redefined, and Dutch drug toleration is pushed into a more punitive direction. Markets and Moral Regulation argues that a crucial agency is European law and its role as a market regulator: as market forces invade these cultural and moral spheres, protective barriers disintegrate. The result is that cultural and social domains are increasingly exposed to the influence of market competition. Bookseller Inventory # AAV9780521003957
