Routledge Studies in Emerging Societies

Series Editor: Jan Nederveen Pieterse

The baton of driving the world economy is passing to emerging economies. This is not just an economic change, but a social change, with migration flows changing direction towards surplus economies; a political change, as in the shift from the G7 to G20; and over time, cultural changes. This also means that the problems of emerging societies will increasingly become world problems. This series addresses the growing importance of BRIC (Brazil Russia India China) and rising societies such as South Korea, Taiwan, Singapore, Indonesia, South Africa, Turkey, the UAE and Mexico. The term ‘emerging societies’ refers to concerns wider than just emerging markets or emerging powers, taking a kaleidoscopic approach that ranges from political economy, finance, technology and IP to social movements, culture, art and aesthetics. The series focuses on problems generated by emergence such as social inequality, cultural change, media, ethnic and religious strife, ecological constraints, relations with advanced and developing societies, and new regionalism, with a particular interest in addressing debates and social reflexivity in emerging societies.
