The struggle over borders: cosmopolitanism and communitarianism


The struggle over borders: cosmopolitanism and communitarianism. Edited by: de Wilde, Pieter; Koopmans, Ruud; Merkel, Wolfgang; Strijbis, Oliver; Zürn, Michael (2019). Cambridge: Cambridge University Press.

Abstract

Citizens, parties and movements are increasingly contesting issues connected to globalization, such as whether to welcome immigrants, promote free trade and support international integration. The resulting political fault line, precipitated by a deepening rift between elites and mass publics, has created the space for the rise of populism. Responding to these issues and debates, this book presents a comprehensive and up-to-date analysis of how economic, cultural and political globalization have transformed democratic politics. This study offers a fresh perspective on the rise of populism based on analyses of public and elite opinion and party politics, as well as mass media debates on climate change, human rights, migration, regional integration and trade in the USA, Germany, Poland, Turkey and Mexico. Furthermore, it considers similar conflicts taking place within the European Union and the United Nations. Appealing to political scientists, sociologists and international relations scholars, this book is also an accessible introduction to these debates for undergraduate and masters students.
