Thompson, Grahame.

     The constitutionalization of the global corporate sphere? / Grahame E. Thompson. - Oxford, United Kingdom : Oxford University Press, 2012.

With the advent of globalization - where corporate organizations and the commercial relations that accompany them are argued to be becoming increasingly transnational - the locus of powers, authorities, and responsibilities has shifted to the global level. The nation-state arena is losing its capacity to regulate and control commercial processes and practices as a transformational logic kicks-in, associated with new forms of global rule-making and governance.

UNHCR and the struggle for accountability : technology, law and results-based management / edited by Kristin Bergtora Sandvik and Katja Lindskov Jacobsen. - London : Routledge, Taylor & Francis Group, 2016.

Despite the key importance of accountability for the legitimacy of humanitarian action, inadequate academic attention has been given to how the concept of accountability is evolving within the specific branches of the humanitarian enterprise. Up to now, there exists no comprehensive account of what we label the "technologies of accountability", the effects of their interaction, or the question of how the current turn to decision-making software and biometrics as both the means and ends of accountability may contribute to reshaping humanitarian governance.

Tax implications of natural disasters and pollution / edited by Massimo Basilavecchia, Lorenzo del Frederico, Pietro Mastellone. - Alphen aan den Rijn, the Netherlands : Kluwer Law International, 2015.

There is little doubt that tax authorities can provide significant relief when disasters occur, yet there is generally nothing approaching consensus on what kinds of tax measures are most effective. In most cases the public policy response remains an ad hoc mix of subsidies, insurance schemes, and tax relief, with the latter component least defined. This book, however - the first on this key topic of growing importance - bears witness to the potential for a global tax framework that can be seen as emerging in international law.
