New Transatlanticism : Politics and Policy Perspectives
The considerable and growing literature on transatlantic relations contains fundamental gaps in the areas of Public Administration and Public Policy. This book seeks to redress this imbalance by examining the policy successes and failures of the New Transatlantic Agenda (NTA).
Divided into two parts, experts from the EU and US investigate the origins of the New Transatlantic Agenda, the points of commonality and differences in the two systems of governance, and the major points of interest which the US and the EU have identified and targeted for intensive policy dialogue and convergence. In Part Two, close attention is paid to key policy areas such as trade, competition, transport, foreign policy, education which the EU and the US have addressed in implementing the NTA.
This insightful account into effectiveness and feasibility of network governance in producing policy convergence is a welcomed resource for policy specialists oriented toward comparative public policy wishing to enter the arena of Transatlantic Studies.
