The ongoing information revolution is perceived as a profound organizational challenge for foreign ministries. Yet there is only scant empirical evidence on the nature of the change dynamics. Anchored in new institutionalist approaches in political science, this book reconceptualizes diplomacy as an institution of the modern state order and identifies its key organizing principles maintained by the global group of foreign ministries. With this conceptualization as a point of departure, the book provides a comparative analysis of information technology effects in the foreign ministries of Canada, Norway and Slovakia. The result is a comprehensive assessment of the magnitude and the direction of change in the organizational machinery of diplomacy in early 21st Century.
In Digitalized Finance, Edemilson Paraná investigates the relationship between the development of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) and the process of financialization of economies on a global scale, particularly in Brazil. The book explains the influence of ICT in the emergence and consolidation, especially from the 1980s, of new forms of operation and management of the globalized financial system, highly connected, operated in “real time” with intensive use of technological features, and how these advances are related with the economic and social changes in question. It also describes how contemporary capital markets work, where the search for earnings is leveraged by sophisticated mathematical models, robots and automated trading software that seek financial gains in the milliseconds scale.

Contribution to the Berlin Conference
The topic of Progressive Governance which is the focus of this volume is today inconceivable without the global modernization process which has permeated our societies and our daily lives. The 14 reform-minded heads of State and government who discussed Progresssive Governance in Berlin in June 2000 have above all else embraced this modernization process as an opportunity.
Governments are under great pressure to provide political responses to the visible and tangible process of globalization. Particularly in the face of ever faster merging economies, the information revolution, unrestricted capital mobility and global culture change, people expect globalization to be managed politically and given democratic form.
Many innovative responses to the challenges of globalization, the knowledge society and demography are sketched out in the contributions in this book. The response of progressive governments to globalization is cooperation - a new international social covenant between markets, states and civil society.
But, what it is about, in any case, is the best way towards development based on prosperity and justice. The contributions in this book could help to better define this best way.
