English | 2022 | ISBN: 0192866524 | 241 pages | True PDF EPUB | 9.03 MB
Despite the role of shadow banking in the building up of the 2008 international financial crisis, the massive size of this sector, its cross-border nature, and the risks it entails for financial stability, the post-crisis regulation of shadow banking has remained rather feeble. Why?
The Perils of International Regime Complexity in Shadow Banking identifies a ‘game of shadows’, which unfolded recursively concerning the definition, monitoring, and regulation of shadow banking internationally. Thus, states, regulators, and private actors tended to cast light away from various parts of the shadow banking system – shadow banking was (re)fined over time, its measurement was narrowed down, lessening the (perceived) need for regulation.

The Relationship between Regime Type and Civic Education The Cases of Three Chinese Societies


The Relationship between Regime "Type" and Civic Education: The Cases of Three Chinese Societies by Hui Li
English | EPUB | 2021 | 154 Pages | ISBN : 9811652325 | 0.4 MB
Using comparative qualitative methodology, this book examines three Chinese societies, Taiwan, Hong Kong, and Mainland China, as specific cases of democratic, hybrid and authoritarian regimes, presenting the theoretical underpinnings of civic education in contexts other than liberal democracy. It highlights on the concept of ‘good citizens’ in these three regime contexts and explores how these concepts are reflected in civic education and perceived by students in the three societies. The book focuses on three levels of comparison to ensure that all relevant issues can be identified: Level 1: regime "type"; Level 2: curriculum and policy formulations; Level 3: students’ personal experiences. These three levels are linked with each other and form a continuous process of civic education implementation in Taiwan, Hong Kong, and Mainland China.
