New TitlesGreen Economy and Good Governance for Sustainable DevelopmentOpportunities, Promises and ConcernsEDITED BY JOSE A. PUPPIM DE OLIVEIRAMuch of the debate on green growth and environmental governance tends to be generalin nature, and is often conceptual or limited to single disciplines. Even though recentdiscussions on these topics have benefited from the accumulation of empirical andtheoretical knowledge over the last few decades, these discussions have not produced thekind of conceptual novelty and tools necessary to place the notion of a green economywithin mainstream political, social and economic agendas. Furthermore, discussions ongovernance remain mostly in the international sphere with merely tenuous talk on governanceat the national and subnational levels – the levels at which implementation is key.The contributors to this book present the gap that can emerge between intentions andresults when green initiatives are put into practice, and highlight the lack of discussion onimportant topics such as equity.Green Economy and Good Governance for Sustainable Development takes stock of theachievements and obstacles towards sustainability over the last 20 years, and proposesnew ideas and changes to create a more sustainable future.Jose A. Puppim de Oliveira is Assistant Director and Senior Research Fellow at the UnitedNations University Institute of Advanced Studies, Japan.“This well-timed book deserves a broadreadership.

Ethics and International AffairsExtent and LimitsSecond EditionEDITED BY JEAN-MARC COICAUD AND DANIEL WARNEREthics and International Affairs explores the extent and limits of contemporary internationalethics and examines the ways in which the international community has respondedto some of the most crucial challenges since the end of the Cold War.At the centre of the book is a discussion of how responsibility is viewed at individual,national and international levels when facing the problems of human rights, humanitarianintervention, environmental issues, considerations of gender, international economicjustice, matters of war and peace and the plight of refugees. While some authors revisitthe conception and interpretation of international ethics, others focus on the necessity topush for the better implementation and improvement of existing international norms.The result is an examination of how ethics are defined in today’s specific contexts and howan understanding of the ethical may be developed from the articulation of the dilemmasencountered.“This book will be particularly useful forstudents coming into the field of ethicsin international relations. It introduceskey ethical problems as they arise inconnection with diplomacy, violence,international order, international law,human rights, feminist issues in worldpolitics, refugees and globalization. Theauthors engage with these topics from arange of rival perspectives. It is not oftenthat such an illustrious group of scholarsin normative international relationstheory are to be found presenting theirpositions in a single volume. Readers willcome away from this collection intellectuallyexcited and ethically committedto seeking out solutions to some hardethical questions.”—Mervyn Frost, Professor of International Relations,Head of Department, War Studies,King’s College, LondonISBN 978-92-808-1225-1360 pages; paper; US$36.00June 2013The issues tackled in the book were already topical ten years ago, at the time of the firstedition. In 2013, the year of publication for this second edition, following the tumultuousdecade of the early 2000s, they have only gained in importance.“A very welcome second edition with important new material, Coicaud and Warner’s selectionseschew ideal and abstract moral considerations in favour of practical reasoning anddemonstrations of the actual penetration of ethical principles in international affairs. Forthose who want to know about operative ethical principles, instead of the fairy tale worldof Rawlsian ideal theorising, and who want practical reasoning about how those principlesmight be elaborated, start here.”—Cornelia Navari, Professor of International Affairs, University of Buckingham, UKJean-Marc Coicaud is a Professor of Law and Global Affairs, and Director of the Divisionof Global Affairs at Rutgers University, USA.

New TitlesInternational Rule of Law and Professional EthicsEDITED BY VESSELIN POPOVSKIThe concept “rule of law” is well established in domestic constitutions and over manycenturies has evolved to signify the supremacy of law above the rich and the powerful,above the potential arbitrariness or bias of human decisions.This book investigates the concept “international rule of law”, which can be a problematicone as terms such as “international democracy”, “international welfare” or ”internationalfreedom of speech” are not commonly used. International rule of law is definedas a process of recognition worldwide that law, both domestic and international, mustbe supreme and must remain detached from both power and bias. The authors arguethat international rule of law is a gradual ascendance of law above power internationally,which can be illustrated in two ways: by global acceptance of the principles of rule of lawand by repeated rulings of international tribunals, reaffirming that the supremacy of lawplaces it above political, economic or other considerations. The book also examines howprofessional ethics, in particular the ethical behaviour of various groups of internationalemployees, such as judges and prosecutors in international tribunals, diplomats and legaladvisors, international civil servants and commissioners, can contribute to the developmentof the international rule of law.“The United Nations is the symbol ofhumanity’s aspirations for a rules-basedinternational order, whether this be insecurity, human rights or environmentalgovernance. Just as the organizationprovides a platform where the weakand the powerful can interact onformally equal terms, so law mediatesrelations between unequals by actingas a constraint on capricious behaviourand setting limits on the arbitraryexercise of power. This admirable booktraces the progressive internationalizationof the rule of law, offering alongthe way intriguing insights into howvarious professions have helped todevelop and implement internationalethical standards.”ISBN 978-92-80-8-1226-8240 pages; paper; US$34.00September 2013—Ramesh Thakur,Australian National University“This book makes a strong case for the recognition of the importance of rule of law both indomestic law and courts, as well as the conception of international rule of law, where theinternational tribunals have been critically examined. This original volume recognizes thelinkages between domestic and international rule of law and connects them with ethicsand governance. The substantial contribution goes beyond the analysis of statutory lawand develops a strong jurisprudential foundation for protecting the rule of law. It is writtenby scholars with outstanding records of publications, who significantly contributed to theadvancement of knowledge in a number of related fields. This explains the authoritativenature and the intellectual rigour, the strong thematic framework and policy focus allthroughout, which does not lose sight of the scholarly arguments that are essential in abook of this nature.” —C.

The Role of Ecosystems in Disaster Risk ReductionEDITED BY FABRICE G. RENAUD, KAREN SUDMEIER-RIEUX AND MARISOL ESTRELLAThe increasing worldwide trend in disasters, which will be aggravated by global environmentalchange (including climate change), urges us to implement new approaches tohazard mitigation, as well as exposure and vulnerability reduction. We are, however, facedwith hard choices about hazard mitigation: should we continue to build dikes and wallsto protect ourselves against floods and coastal hazards – though we have seen the limitsof these – or should we consider alternative, ecosystem-based solutions? Ecosystemmanagement is a well-tested solution to sustainable development that is being revisitedbecause of its inherent “win–win” and “no-regrets” appeal to address rising disaster andclimate change issues. It is one of the few approaches that can impact all elements of thedisaster risk equation – mitigating hazards, reducing exposure, reducing vulnerabilitiesand increasing the resilience of exposed communities. Yet, the uptake of ecosystem-basedapproaches for disaster risk reduction (DRR) is slow despite some very good examples ofsuccess stories. Reasons for this are multiple: ecosystem management is rarely consideredas part of the portfolio of DRR solutions because the environmental and disastermanagement communities typically work independently from each other; its contributionto DRR is highly undervalued compared to engineered solutions and thus not attributedappropriate budget allocations; finally, there are poor science–policy interactions onecosystem-based DRR, which have led to unclear and sometimes contradictory scientificinformation on the role of ecosystems in DRR.ISBN 978-92-808-1221-3440 pages; paper; US$40.00August 2013The aim of this book is to provide an overview of knowledge and practice in the multidisciplinaryfield of ecosystem management and DRR to encourage and further developdialogues between scientists, practitioners, policymakers and development planners.Fabrice G.

New TitlesMeasuring Vulnerability to Natural HazardsTowards Disaster Resilient SocietiesSecond EditionEDITED BY JÖRN BIRKMANN“Climate change adaptation”, “building resilience” and “vulnerability and risk reduction”are noble words, but do we really know what is meant by these terms and how to assesstheir respective progress? Measuring Vulnerability to Natural Hazards seeks to addressthese questions.The world has recently experienced disasters of a magnitude rarely seen before: thecascading disaster in Japan, the earthquake in Haiti, and floods in Pakistan and Australiaare a few prominent examples. These major disasters underline the fact that many communitiesand world regions are still vulnerable to extreme events and natural hazards. Thedynamic and complex interaction between vulnerable communities, and climate- andnon-climate-related, sudden-onset and creeping hazards very probably increases the riskof crises and disasters in the future.“This completely revised book onmeasuring vulnerability to naturalhazards, edited by Jörn Birkmannwho has brought together more than30 authors working in this field, is anexcellent and very positive additionto the scientific literature on disasterrisk reduction. The strategic connectionswith climate change adaptationare very timely and comprehensive.The focus on vulnerability and itsassessment makes it highly relevant toscholars and also towards the developmentof strategic policy.”—Gordon McBean,Institute for Catastrophic Loss Reduction,University of Western Ontario andChair, Science Committee, Integrated Researchon Disaster Risk ProgrammeISBN 978-92-808-1202-2620 pages; paper; US$42.00August 2013Measuring Vulnerability to Natural Hazards is a completely revised, second edition ofthe popular book of the same title. Aside from being fully updated, this new editionincludes the dimension of adaptation to climate change and new risks resulting fromclimate change. The text provides and combines practical examples from Africa, Asia, theAmericas and Europe with theoretical and conceptual frameworks. It is key reading for allthose interested in improving risk reduction and adaptation strategies to extreme eventsand gradual changes in the context of climate change and natural hazards. Measuringvulnerability and evaluating adaptation are essential prerequisites to strengthen thecapacities of communities in building resilience through knowledge-based approaches.Jörn Birkmann is Academic Officer and Head of the Vulnerability Assessment, RiskManagement and Adaptive Planning Section at the United Nations University Institutefor Environment and Human Security, Germany, and Visiting Adjunct Professor at theDepartment of Geography, University of Bonn.

Environmental Governance for Sustainable DevelopmentEast Asian PerspectivesEDITED BY AKIHISA MORIIn order to advance global sustainable development it is indispensable to change thecourse and mode of conventional economic growth in the East Asian region, which hasenjoyed rapid economic growth but faces environmental challenges.This volume gives attention to the evolution of multilevel environmental governance inthe East Asian region, including both Northeast and Southeast Asia. It examines howeffective emerging environmental governance and policy has been and addresses theunderlying causes of local, national, regional and global environmental challenges. Topicalchapters include those on democratization and its effect on decision-making processes,international environmental aid, economic analysis of carbon reduction policy, regionaland global environmental regimes and subsequent new financial mechanisms, and hybridsystems of environmental governance that emphasize the role of the private sector andcivil society in contributing to environmental governance.Special attention is also given to the regional economic and environmental regimes. Thevolume examines the advantages, challenges and solutions in addressing local, national,regional and global environmental challenges, and in changing the course of economicgrowth.“East Asia is turning into a key region inthe world, in terms of both acceleratingenvironmental problems and innovativeenvironmental reform. This very timelyand up-to-date volume containsin-depth analyses of the successes andchallenges of contemporary environmentalgovernance in various EastAsian countries and on multiple topics.Through a large number of detailedand fascinating studies, from multipleperspectives, a unique understandingis offered on how national, regionaland international policies, strategiesand measures contribute to sustainabledevelopment.”—Arthur P.

New TitlesLocal Commons and Democratic Environmental GovernanceEDITED BY TAKESHI MUROTA AND KEN TAKESHITAThe rising tide of globalization poses a direct threat to the viability of small communitiesworldwide. Such communities, however, are our greatest hope for sustainable environmentalgovernance, as they possess unparalleled ability to directly manage common-pool resources.Providing a much-needed antidote in this age of globalization, this volume advances theidea of collaborative governance as an integration of open and closed commons. Takinginto consideration the dimension of conflict resolution, it studies examples of governancestructures in various countries around the world to develop a new type of democracy towardsmultilevel environmental governance that involves the public, private and commons spheres.With contributions from researchers in a wide variety of disciplines, this volume demonstratesthrough institutional and empirical analyses the essential role of local commons inproviding an axis of resistance to increasing environmental devastation and social inequalitytowards creating a sustainable future for local communities as well as society at large.Takeshi Murota is a Professor in the Department of Economics at Doshisha University, Japan.Ken Takeshita is a Professor of Legal Philosophy in the Law School at Kansai University,Japan.ISBN 978-92-808-1223-7440 pages; paper; US$40.00March 2013Contents overview:Part I: Theoretical studies of the commonsContributors: Yutaka Suga, Makoto Inoue and Gaku MitsumataPart II: Institution of the commonsContributors: Tatsuya Suzuki, Takeshi Murota, Izuru Ota and Shimpei IwasakiPart III: Local commons and survival strategies under globalizationContributors: Hiroshi Noda, Rui Izumi, Yuichiro Hirano, Daisaku Shimada, TakeshiMurota, Haruo Saito, Toshio Meguro and Yasuhiro NakanishiPart IV: Collaboration, democracy and multilevel environmental governanceContributors: Ken Takeshita, Shinji Yamamoto, Yoshio Takatsu, Tomohiko Ohno andCongmian JiaoConclusionBuilding common property regimes to deter resource-wrecking, Margaret A.

Regional Integration in East AsiaTheoretical and Historical PerspectivesEDITED BY SATOSHI AMAKO, SHUNJI MATSUOKA AND KENJI HORIUCHIAsian regional integration has shown remarkable progress since the end of the 1990s,but is currently at a major crossroads amid confusion of debate over the direction andeffectiveness of integration, and friction brought about by the “rise of China”. Meanwhile,the changing balance of power among nations, the rise of non-state actors, the “internationalizationof internal problems” and the “internalization of international problems”,are rendering the cross-national structure of Asia increasingly complex and multilayered.Signs of instability of the global economy are growing and environmental and resourcechallenges are deepening. The Asian region needs new approaches to understanding thestate of regional integration and mechanisms to address the challenges.“This is an excellent book on regionalintegration in East Asia. Well-knownexperts have given a better understandingof this complex and evolvingprocess through multiple perspectivesand disciplines on the history, theoryand practice of regional integration.I strongly recommend this book toscholars, students and policymakersinterested in East Asian affairs.“—Surin Pitsuwan,Secretary-General of the Associationof Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN)ISBN 978-92-808-1222-0388 pages; paper; US$40.00March 2013Regional Integration in East Asia is the culmination of five years of intensive research onAsian regional integration by Waseda University. It re-examines theoretical approachesto comprehending the actual state of integration in the region and presents the mostcompelling among them. It also examines the state of regional cooperation in Asia inareas ranging from the economy to energy and the environment, security and education.In addition, the book offers long-term historical perspectives, including especially thoseof Japan, ASEAN and China, on Asian regional integration. Thus, it sheds light on diverseaspects, levels of analysis and time spans, and offers a comprehensive portrayal of theactual condition of Asia and the state of endeavours to build regional cooperation andinstitutions.

New TitlesBusiness and Climate PolicyThe Potentials and Pitfalls of Private Voluntary ProgramsEDITED BY KARSTEN RONITClimate change has become one of the most important and challenging global policyfields. Attention has primarily focused on the successes and failures of states and intergovernmentalorganizations but many more actors are involved and contribute to solutions.Business, often seen as spurring climate change, harbours a lot of potential for problemsolving. Today, a rich variety of private voluntary programs address climate change.Private voluntary programs are private in the sense that they are initiated by and made upof businesses, voluntary in the sense that businesses are free to join or leave them, andprograms in that a variety of formal rules, resources and bodies are often established toadminister and evaluate the schemes.Business and Climate Policy assesses the potentials and pitfalls of existing privatevoluntary programs. The contributors evaluate how effectively different programs meetpublic and private goals at the national and international levels, and across industries. Thelessons learned presented in this book can help to design new programs and improvethose in existence. Such lessons learned are relevant not only within climate policy, butalso within the many other policy fields in which private voluntary programs are active.Karsten Ronit is an Associate Professor in the Department of Political Science, Universityof Copenhagen, Denmark.ISBN 978-92-808-1214-5276 pages; paper; US$34.00June 2012Table of contents:Part I: IntroductionMarrying climate policy and private voluntary programs, Karsten RonitPart II: Cross-sectoral and multisectoral programsPrivate voluntary programs in environmental governance: Climate change and thefinancial sector, Jennifer Clapp and Jason ThistlethwaitePrivate voluntary programs on climate change: US federal government as thesponsoring actor, Lily Hsueh and Aseem PrakashPart III: SectorsThe role of private voluntary climate programs affecting forests: Assessing their directand intersecting effects, Laura Bozzi, Benjamin Cashore, Kelly Levin and ConstanceMcDermottEmerging private voluntary programs and climate change: The blind spots of theagrifood sector, Doris Fuchs and Frederike BollClimate change, private voluntary programs and the automobile industry, Tony PorterPart IV: ConclusionsPrivate voluntary programs in climate policy: Potentials and pitfalls, Karsten Ronit10 Publications 2012–2013


After OppressionTransitional Justice in Latin America and Eastern EuropeEDITED BY VESSELIN POPOVSKI AND MÓNICA SERRANOThe decline of authoritarianism in Latin America and Eastern Europe marked the end ofa dark chapter in the history of these societies. In both regions, transition to democracywas accompanied by distinct efforts to come to terms with the traumatic experiences ofthe past and to demand accountability from the oppressors. The impact of these effortsrippled far beyond national boundaries, expanding the frontiers of international justiceand yielding indelible lessons and inspiration. As these societies crossed the unchartedwaters of transition and liberalization, one difficult question remained: How can the needfor democratic stability in the present and future be reconciled with the imperative of truthand justice for the past? This was an unprecedented test: societies made their way forwardoften through trial and error, steps ahead were followed by steps back. After Oppressionenquires into the effectiveness of various accountability mechanisms and argues that whilethere are many different paths to truth and justice, all depend on continued efforts inorder to reach them. In many cases these efforts also create favourable conditions for thedevelopment of a resilient human rights culture. This book demonstrates that democraticconsolidation and accountability for past human rights violations are closely related, ifindependent, processes.“Latin America and Eastern Europeemerged from dictatorship more orless contemporaneously in the 1980sand ’90s. The contrast in the ways theyreckoned with their respective legaciesof human rights violations has been atheme of the emerging field of ‘transitionaljustice’ ever since. With the benefitof a quarter century of experience, AfterOppression presents the most comprehensivecomparative study of thosesimilarities and differences. EditorsMónica Serrano and Vesselin Popovskihave assembled a most impressivegroup of scholars and practitionersto conduct this essential study. Theycombine intellectual rigor with ‘you-arethere’proximity to the challenges,frustrations and signal successes of thestruggle for justice in our time.”—Juan E.

New TitlesExorcising the Demons WithinXenophobia, Violence and Statecraft in Contemporary South AfricaEDITED BY LOREN B. LANDAUOn 11 May 2008, residents of Alexandra Township near Johannesburg turned violently ontheir neighbours, launching a string of attacks that, two weeks later, left 60 dead, dozensraped and over a hundred thousand displaced. Most of those killed were from beyondSouth Africa’s borders, but at least a third were citizens who, for reasons of ethnicity orpolitical affiliation, failed to protect their space in the country’s urban core. Althoughnot the most severe political violence in South Africa’s turbulent past, the 2008 attacksreflect an important moment in the country’s post-apartheid, post-authoritarian existence:a moment when the government’s legitimacy and the post-apartheid order were calledinto question. This xenophobic violence made evident cracks in the cohesion of law andsociety while helping to redefine both.It is these events and subsequent consequences for the ordering of power, population andplace that this book explores. Exorcising the Demons Within makes sense of recent antioutsiderviolence by situating it within an extended history of South African statecraft thatboth produced the conditions for the attacks and has been reshaped by it. Drawing on aninterdisciplinary team of expert scholars and on new research, this is the first academic textto fully theorise the events that made global headlines in 2008.“By placing the demons within bothmigration and violent citizenship andin a longer historical perspective,this book succeeds in surpassingcurrent interpretations of the 2008violence against immigrants in thetownships as just resulting fromxenophobia. The authors masterfullyshow that the politics of statecraft– notably the African NationalCongress’ (ANC) language of multiculturaldominance – inspired a fataldepolitisation of difference. The verycoherence of this collection offers achallenging analysis of struggle overbelonging and denial of differencethat is of much broader relevance thanSouth Africa alone.”—Peter Geschiere,Department of African Anthropology,University of AmsterdamISBN 978-92-808-1215-2296 pages; paper; US$36.00April 2012“This book is critical of the policies, practices and politics of containment that continue toframe belonging in post-apartheid South Africa in an era of flexible mobility. The dominantlogic of ever diminishing circles of inclusion informed by hierarchies of humanity withinand between states is productive of the sort of narrow articulation of belonging that easilyresults in the rationalisation of difference, demonisation, xenophobia and violence suchas that of May 2008 – the key event that ties together this richly crafted, well documentedand empirically grounded collection of essays.”—Francis B.

Escaping VictimhoodChildren, Youth and Post-Conflict PeacebuildingEDITED BY ALBRECHT SCHNABEL AND ANARA TABYSHALIEVAIn the aftermath of violent conflict, no society can afford to rebuild its future without theparticipation of its young generation and consideration for their interests and needs. Yet,trapped in a state of protracted victimhood, children and youth – and their needs andpotential – risk being overlooked in the planning and implementation of post-conflictpeacebuilding. Their voices will not be heard unless they can escape the chains ofvictimhood and their agency in post-war recovery effort is recognized.By drawing on experiences from post-conflict environments in different parts of theworld, a diverse group of researchers and scholar-practitioners working in academia, andnon-governmental and international organizations examine the proactive roles of girlsand boys in promoting security for themselves and their families; their disproportionatesuffering and their specific vulnerabilities during and after the war; international legalframeworks created to protect and empower children and youth in post-conflict environments;examples of initiatives to help young people escape the traps of victimhoodand voicelessness and actively engage in rebuilding their communities and nations; andinternational and national efforts to provide for the security of children and young peoplein post-conflict environments.“This volume, focusing on children andyouth in post-conflict situations, takesa very wide angled view, includingchapters on Europe, Asia, the MiddleEast and Africa. Taking a case studyapproach the volume attempts tosituate local conflicts and their effectson children and youth within an internationalpeacebuilding and securitycontext. The volume attempts to asserta sense of agency on the part of childrenand youth rather than perpetuatingthe idea of this group as a vulnerablepopulation and victims of conflict.”—Louise Vincent,Professor, Department of Politicaland International Studies, Rhodes UniversityISBN 978-92-808-1211-4328 pages; paper; US$37.00September 2013As the young post-war generation will become the next leaders, parents and teachers,ensuring children and youth’s active role in post-conflict peacebuilding today could beamong the most effective means of building a sustainable peace tomorrow.Albrecht Schnabel is a Senior Fellow in the Research Division of the Geneva Centre forthe Democratic Control of Armed Forces, Switzerland.

New TitlesFriend or Foe? Dominant Party Systems in Southern AfricaInsights from the Developing WorldEDITED BY NICOLA DE JAGER AND PIERRE DU TOITWithin southern Africa, there is an observable increase in dominant party systems, inwhich one political party dominates over a prolonged period of time, within a democraticsystem with regular elections. This party system has replaced the one-party system thatdominated Africa’s political landscape after the first wave of liberations in the 1950sand 1960s. This book seeks to understand this trend and its implications for southernAfrica’s democracies by comparing such systems in southern Africa with others in thedeveloping world (such as India, South Korea and Taiwan). In particular, the case ofZimbabwe stands out as a concerning example of the direction a dominant party cantake: regression into authoritarianism. India, South Korea and Taiwan present alternativeroutes for the dominant party system. The salient question posed by this book is: Whichroute are Botswana, Namibia and South Africa taking? It answers by drawing conclusionsto determine whether these countries are moving towards liberal democracy, authoritarianismor a road in between.Nicola de Jager is a lecturer in the Department of Political Science, University ofStellenbosch, South Africa. Pierre du Toit teaches in the Department of Political Science,University of Stellenbosch, South Africa.“The excellence of this volume comesto me as no surprise.

Jacketed WomenQualitative Research Methodologies on Sexualities and Gender in AfricaEDITED BY JANE BENNETT AND CHARMAINE PEREIRAIn 2004, the African Gender Institute ran a continental research project, MappingSexualities, among the objectives of which was the development of a research methodologysuited to carrying out in-depth case studies of the dynamics of gender and contemporarysexual cultures in Ghana, Nigeria, South Africa and Uganda.This book is the result of this research. The chapters cover broad-ranging issues andinclude questions about what it means to research topics that are unpopular or fraughtwith the sense of the taboo that underpins much work in sexualities and gender studies.Overall, the diverse pieces within the collection offer the opportunity to see qualitativeresearch not as the “poor cousin” of quantitative studies but as a zone which raises intellectualand political challenges.Jane Bennett is an Associate Professor and the Director of the African Gender Institutebased at the University of Cape Town, South Africa. Charmaine Pereira teaches in theSociology Department of Ahmadu Bello University, Nigeria.“An invaluable and timely resource inthe ways that it tackles conceptualand practical issues that most texts onmethodology overlook or purposelyignore.
