Abstract

Asia looks and feels very different now compared to the days of the Cold War. The sense that Asia now works differently can be traced to a single source – the re-emergence of China. China was the dominant power in greater Asia for most of recorded history. This historical norm was interrupted from the early 19th century, too far into the past to be recognisable and readily accommodated by the actors in today’s international arena. A powerful China feels new and unfamiliar. Arriving peacefully at mutually acceptable relationships of power and influence that are very different from those that have prevailed for the past half century will be a demanding process. The world’s track record on challenges of this kind is not terrific. It will call for statesmanship of a consistently high order from all the major players, and building the strongest possible confidence among these players that there are no hidden agendas.

Abstract

Seit den 1990er Jahren durchläuft Entwicklungspolitik eine Wandlung. Die Frage bewaffneter Konflikte und Kriege in den Peripherien hat "Nachhaltigkeit" als neue und zentrale Problemstellung abgelöst. Dieser Prozess verläuft nicht bei allen Akteuren gleich. Vielmehr werden spezifische Rationalitäten von Steuerung sichtbar, die sich mit dem Foucault'schen Begriff der Gouvernementalität fassen lassen. In einem Vergleich der entwicklungspolitischen Praxis der USA und Deutschlands arbeitet diese Studie die Unterschiedlichkeiten der Konzepte und institutionellen Ausrichtungen heraus und analysiert deren Implementierung in Sri Lanka.

Abstract

This two-volume collection brings together the first 53 Joseph Fisher Lectures in economics and commerce, presented at the Adelaide University every other year since 1904. Funds for the Lectures, together with a medal for the top accounting student each year, were kindly provided by a £1,000 endowment to the University by the prominent Adelaide businessman Joseph Fisher in 1903. The Lectures address a wide range of Australian economic issues, in addition to some international economic issues of national significance. They have stood the test of time extremely well, while also providing a reminder of the events and concerns that were prominent at different times during the past century.

Abstract

Universalität der Menschenrechte oder einzelstaatliche Souveränität? Dieser Gegensatz entfaltet sich bei nahezu allen internationalen Konflikten. Vertreter beider Prinzipien setzen auf Gewalt als politisches Mittel. In einer Aktualisierung von Hannah Arendts politischer Philosophie zeigt Claas Christophersen, dass sich die fundamentalen Probleme menschlichen Zusammenlebens auf globaler Ebene nur dann lösen lassen, wenn sich die Weltgemeinschaft in Richtung einer transnationalen Demokratie weiterentwickelt und die politische Teilhabe aller Weltbürgerinnen und Weltbürger gewährleistet ist. Ein innovativer Beitrag zu einer der Schlüsselfragen transnationaler Politik.

Abstract

In the mid-1990s a joint research project was established between CASER (Bogor), CIES (Adelaide), CSIS ( Jakarta) and RSPAS (at ANU, Canberra) to examine interactions between agriculture, trade and the environment in Indonesia. Funded by the Australian Centre for International Agricultural Research (ACIAR Project No. 9449), the specific objective of the project was to assess the production, consumption, trade, income distributional, regional, environmental, and welfare eff ects in Indonesia of structural and policy changes at home and abroad. Particular attention was to be paid to those structural and policy changes that could aff ect Indonesia’s agricultural sector over the next 5-10 years. The implications of national and global economic growth, of regional and multilateral trade liberalisation initiatives, and of Indonesia’s ongoing unilateral policy reforms were the initial focus of the study. However, with the onslaught of the financial crisis that began in the latter part of 1997, the project leaders added that issue to the research agenda.

The International Assessment of Agricultural Knowledge, Science and Technology for Development[IAASTD] adopted in Johannesburg, South Africa in 2008, is the result of a unique cooperative effort by UN and other international organizations, 60 governments and more than 400 scientists from all over the world.A Global Report and five Regional Reports describe the main problems facing agriculture, food, the environment and human health today and show how the urgent need for a turnaround towards sustainable, environmentally and socially equitable development and food security for a growing world population can be achieved in practice. The synthesis report now published in German summarizes the central analyses and options.
