Abstract

For over a quarter of the 20 century global developments in law, economics, politics, and culture have been reconfiguring the institutions, mentalities and practices of governance (see, especially, Garland 2001; Held et al 1999). This has been happening in both established liberal democracies and in nations in transition to democracy. In established democratic contexts, centralised welfare-liberal governance has been giving way to forms that are more diffuse and open-ended (Rose 1996). Similarly, authoritarian and 'settler rule' governments have in many cases been giving way to parallel democratic reforms (Weitzer 1990).
