Global Change, Political Coalitions, and National Responses

Global Change, Political Coalitions, and National Responses

(p.3) 1 Global Change, Political Coalitions, and National Responses
Coalitions and Compliance

Kenneth C. Shadlen

Oxford University Press

This chapter introduces the broad changes in the global politics of intellectual property that marked the late 1900s and early 2000s, and a coalitional argument for understanding cross-national and longitudinal diversity in response to the new external environment. The chapter situates the book’s analysis in the context of broader scholarship in comparative and international political economy, highlighting the importance of coalitions for understanding national forms of compliance to global changes. The chapter reviews scholarship on the politics of intellectual property, with an eye toward integrating international and domestic drivers of national policies. The chapter concludes with discussion of the logic of case selection, the method of data collection and comparative analysis, and the organization of the remainder of the book.
