Wydawnictwa Naukowego PWN ukazała się książka pt. „Polityka
społeczno-gospodarcza w UE. Finanse na poziomie krajowym, europejskim i
globalnym.” Publikacja wpisuje się w toczącą się w środowisku praktyków
i teoretyków dyskusję na temat słabości działania instytucji
ponadnarodowych, jak i krajowych, które uwidocznił kryzys finansowy.
Czy wyciągnęliśmy właściwe wnioski i jesteśmy lepiej przygotowani na
nadejście ewentualnych kolejnych kryzysów? Czy warto realizować
inicjatywy o horyzoncie ponadnarodowym czy też lepiej skupić się na
działaniach podejmowanych w ramach nurtu nowego nacjonalizmu? Autorka
szukając odpowiedzi na powyższe pytania, analizuje sprawność działania
europejskich instytucji ponadnarodowych na tle podmiotów krajowych i
efektywność stosowanych przez nie instrumentów.Spis treści
