GEM PhD Textbook

this publication is the product of a series of GEM PhD Summer Schools on "Globalisation, Europe & Multilateralism" which have seen over its decade long existence:about 400 PhD students pass through its hallways; discussed nearly 15 themes each offering a distinct focus on a subset of the broader debates surround Globalisation and Europe; and utlimately allowinf for the publicationn of a dedicated Textbook which brings some of the perspective resulting from this ongoing dialogue within a global epistemic community.

GEM textbook cover

‘This may be the most multi-dimensional textbook in international politics ever published. Its multiple authors
are multi-cultural and even multi-continental; its approach is multi-disciplinary and multi-layered; its topics are

multi-lateralism and multi-polarism; its units of analysis are multi-regional and multi-functional; its observations are
multi-faceted and multi-cautious. If this were not enough, they are all brought to bear on the multi-ambiguous process
of globalization! Nevertheless, it does manage to present a coherent and challenging message to the advanced student
of political science - whether he or she is interested in the national, regional of global level of aggregation. This owes a
great deal to the exceptional quality of its contributors and the innovative program that brought them together.’
Philippe C. Schmitter, European University Institute, Italy
