About the Author
Lena Partzsch is Professor at the University of Freibeurg and Interim Chair of Comparative Government at the University of Erfurt.
"Ambitious in scope, uncompromising in depth, Partzsch offers a sophisticated, timely investigation of the power struggles and ethical debates shaping transformations in contemporary supply chain governance. A must-read for global scholars interested in social justice and environmental sustainability."
--Kate Macdonald, School of Social and Political Sciences, University of Melbourne

"This original analysis of disparate states, global supply chains, and regulatory forms offers crucial insight into the reliance of regulation on private and hybrid arrangements to improve environmental and social conditions in ways that reinforce mainstream markets, while providing the genesis for a more just and sustainable international political economy."
--Susan Park, Department of Government and International Relations, University of Sydney

"Voluntary sustainability standards are no longer the only game in town. Mandatory market access regulations are on the rise. Probing cases of each, Partzsch provides valuable material for thinking through the intertwining of public and private authority."
--Tim Bartley, Professor of Sociology, Washington University in St. Louis; author of Rules without Rights

"With multilateralism declining, Partzsch's book is a much needed and insightful contribution to the debate on alternative forms of global social and environmental governance."
--Carsten Daugbjerg, Professor, University of Copenhagen
