  1. Fuad Al‐Daraweesh & Dale T. Snauwaert (2013). Toward a Hermeneutical Theory of International Human Rights Education. Educational Theory 63 (4):389-412.
    The purpose of this essay is to articulate and defend the epistemological foundations of international human rights education from the perspective of a hermeneutical interpretive methodology. Fuad Al-Daraweesh and Dale Snauwaert argue here that this methodology potentially alleviates the challenges that face the cross-cultural implementation of human rights education. While acknowledging the necessity of global human rights awareness, the authors maintain that local cultural conceptualization is imperative to the negotiated, local embrace of human rights. A critical, interpretive pedagogy emerges from (...)

    This paper examines the impact of the introduction of Western (European) technical civilization on regional cultures in Nigeria, using Igboland in South-EasternNigeria as a test case. It begins with a discussion of some general features of Western technical civilization whose evolution has been profoundly influenced by technological advances in Europe and her cultural colonies in North America and elsewhere. Consequences of the contact between Western technical civilization and traditional Igbo culture are also examined. The paper concludes by discussing the challenging (...)

    The purpose of this document is to consider possible industrial policy measures that could be contemplated by the South African Government to provide support for the export competitiveness of the country’s processed fruit products. It follows an earlier analysis by Don Ross, which argued for the conclusion that the industry meets key criteria for economically justifiable industrial policy assistance. That is, it offers a premium product that can be amplified in value by brand strengthening, can be positioned more advantageously than (...)

It starts by reflecting on the definition and measurement of socio-economic security, as well as providing a brief description of current socio-economic developments in Western Europe. It continues by investigating how income is distributed among Western European countries, also paying attention to the attitudes of citizens on six important issues (trust in individuals, life satisfaction, satisfaction with democracy, personal happiness, individual's involvement in social activities and subjective health). By (...)

  11. Raj M. Desai, The Political Economy of Poverty Reduction: Scaling Up Antipoverty Programs in the Developing World.
    Large-scale antipoverty programs have achieved significant and positive results in many developing countries around the world in the past decade. This paper explores the challenges of scaling up small-scale antipoverty programs - taken here to mean the processes by which successful efforts to raise the incomes of the poorest citizens in developing counties are expanded in coverage over time and across geography. In particular, I advocate supplementing approaches that highlight resource and program constraints with an expanded focus on the political (...)

    Abstract In The Crisis of Global Capitalism, George Soros claims that the international financial economy is inherently unstable, and that while economists have failed to recognize this because of their commitment to static equilibrium theory, politicians have failed to stabilize the global economy because of their commitment to an unquestioned faith in the complete efficiency of laissez faire. While Soros is right to argue that market participants? expectations about the future can cause instability, he is wrong to maintain that this (...)

    In 1158, Raymundo, abbot of the Navarrese monastery of Fitero, responded to the pleas of the Castilian monarch Sancho III and pledged his assistance and that of a handful of brethren to defend the village and fortress of Calatrava — recently abandoned by the knights of the Temple — from an expected Moslem attack. The vulnerability and importance of this strategic site on the Guadiana River had prompted Sancho to offer attractive rewards to those willing to defend it. Although the (...)

    Immanuel Wallerstein and István Mészáros are prolific scholars whose analyses of global capitalism in crisis offer distinctive insight for research across the social sciences. This book engages readers with their main theses, encouraging the application of these in our analysis of social reality and as its mass educational institutions. Griffiths and Imre undertake this task in their presentation of work under the capitalist world-economy, and the official function of mass education to prepare workers for the global economy. They develop a (...)

    This project demonstrates that prudent use of work heterodox to accepted practices is necessary for the international relations scholarly community to meet its epistemic goals. ;Using Philip Kitcher's naturalist epistemology, I argue that a commitment to rigor requires that international relations scholars rethink their evaluative practices. To reach their goals, they must evaluate heterodox suggestions under the guidance of more comprehensive categories, not in terms of standard visions of empirical support. I suggest thinking in terms of plausibility arguments for possibility (...)

    In this paper I provide a philosophical analysis of family-based immigration. This type of immigration is of great importance, yet has received relatively little attention from philosophers and others doing normative work on immigration. As family-based immigration poses significant challenges for those seeking a comprehensive normative account of the limits of discretion that states should have in setting their own immigration policies, it is a topic that must be dealt with if we are to have a comprehensive account. In what (...)

    In 1795 Immanuel Kant proclaimed that the peoples of the earth have entered into a "universal community". Since Kant wrote this the processes of inter-connection between the peoples of the earth has grown even more pronounced and the notion of "cosmopolitics" has thus come to seem a defining one for the contemporary age. As such this volume makes a timely contribution to contemporary debates about international law, global ecology and economy and transnational synergies. The volume is inter-disciplinary and is intended (...)

    The rise of the Private Military Industry has been cemented in modern global political reality, but where next will this multi-billion dollar industry go and what form will it take after the market boom of Iraq? Post-Colonial Africa is considered the birthplace of the modern mercenary and historically features prominently as a testament to the potential for immoral privately sponsored military activities within unstable states. Moreover, it is a rich market that the Private Military Industry is increasingly turning its attention (...)
