    Title: Neighbourhoods for the City in Pacific Asia
    Publisher(s): Amsterdam University Press
    Year of publication: 2019-2020

    Abstract: The largest cities in East Asia are the engines of their countries' economic growth, seats of national and regional political power, and repositories of the nation's culture and heritage. The economic changes impacting large cities interact with political forces along with social-cultural concerns, and in the process also impact the neighbourhoods of the city. My study looks at local collective action and city government responses and its impact on the community and the city. By adopting a multi-sited comparative approach in studying local action in five important cities (Bangkok, Hong Kong, Seoul, Singapore and Taipei) in Pacific Asia, the book enables comparisons across a number of key issues confronting the city: heritage (Bangkok and Taipei), community involved provisioning of amenities in a number of different contexts (Hong Kong, Seoul, Singapore), place making versus place marketing (Hong Kong). The collaborative efforts city governments establish with local communities becomes an important way to address the liveability of cities

    Title: Iran Looking East
    Publisher(s): Ledizioni
    Document type: Online Resource
    Physical description: 1 electronic resource (127 pages)
    ISBN (invalid): 9788855261470
    Footnote: english
    Abstract: In February 2018, anticipating the US withdrawal from the JCPOA, Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei declared a policy of "preferring East over West", thus paving the way for deeper cooperation with Asian powers such as China, Russia, and India. Differently from the "Look East" policy promoted during the presidency of Ahmadinejad (2005-2013), the current Iranian strategy is not only functional to escape the US-led isolation, but it rather seems devoted to the consolidation of a block of power which can commit to security and economic schemes in alternative to the Western-dominated ones.This ISPI report aims to answer few crucial questions: Which are the major initiatives promoted within Iran's "Look East 2.0" strategy? To what extent will Tehran succeed in creating a solid Eastern block? What will be the influence of the wider geopolitical context? And finally, what role is left for the EU?

    Title: Bleiberecht in der Gastro-Küche
    Publisher(s): Seismo
    Document type: Online Resource
    Physical description: 1 electronic resource (256 pages)
    ISBN (invalid): 9783037777343
    Identifier: 10.33058/seismo.30734
    Footnote: German
    Abstract: Right to stay in the gastro-kitchen Migration policy regulations and working conditions of refugees with precarious residence permit status Asylum policy is labour market policy. Yet, the demarcation lines in migration policy between refugees and labour migrants fail to take this fact into account. It is therefore hardly surprising that this connection remains obscure both in the context of migration policy as well as in the research landscape. In contrast, this book focuses on the interactions between migration policy regulations and the working conditions of refugees with precarious residence permit status. For a start, that means opening the analytical view in the field of asylum policy negotiations to the dynamics of everyday struggles for rights and social participation in the case of Swiss gastronomic companies. Jacqueline Kalbermatter examines how social differentiations become apparent in the kitchen and in the labour process, and asks about their specific relation to the residence permit status and geographical origin of the workers. In the end, the conception of gastronomic companies as a place of ongoing negotiation processes of entrepreneurs and workers allows for a new perspective to be adopted. It reveals the entanglements and ambivalences between asylum policy and the regulation of labour force problems, which otherwise remain hidden

    Title: The Rise and the Future of Militias in the Mena Region
    Publisher(s): Ledizioni
    Document type: Online Resource
    Physical description: 1 electronic resource ( pages)
    ISBN (invalid): 9788855261388
    Footnote: english
    Abstract: In recent decades, militias and sub-national armed groups have played a decisive role in politics and security in the MENA region. Their prominence with local and outside actors in areas where state institutions have collapsed presents multiple policy challenges. Armed groups have access to substantial resources and in some cases enjoy considerable local legitimacy.That makes them formidable but also resilient forces. This is why their suppression - through coercive measures or marginalization - can bring more costs than benefits to already fragile state institutions and exhausted populations.This volume addresses the void in the current debate on subnational armed groups, focusing particularly on the multiple ongoing conflicts and turmoil in the MENA region. It places a particular emphasis on whether armed groups can be integrated into state-building initiatives and whether they can play a constructive role with other key actors

    Title: Europe in Identity Crisis
    Publisher(s): Ledizioni
    Document type: Online Resource
    Physical description: 1 electronic resource (120 pages)
    ISBN (invalid): 9788855261579
    Footnote: english
    Abstract: Today's European Union is in an identity crisis as it seems to be losing its points of reference. The principles that upheld its creation are being increasingly questioned around the world and within the EU itself. Its chances to survive hinge upon its ability to deliver at home and abroad, without abandoning its values and principles but rather adapting and re-launching them.This volume offers policy options on key questions for the future of the EU: How to scale-up its role abroad? How to benefit from new partners without severing ties with traditional allies such as the US? How to contain Eurosceptic forces by reducing inequalities? And how to reinforce the euro while aiming at more sustainable and balanced growth?

    Title: Children and Peace
    Publisher(s): Springer
    Document type: Online Resource
    Physical description: 1 electronic resource (381 pages)
    ISBN (invalid): 9783030221768
    Identifier: 10.1007/978-3-030-22176-8
    Footnote: English
    Abstract: This open access book brings together discourse on children and peace from the 15th International Symposium on the Contributions of Psychology to Peace, covering issues pertinent to children and peace and approaches to making their world safer, fairer and more sustainable. The book is divided into nine sections that examine traditional themes (social construction and deconstruction of diversity, intergenerational transitions and memories of war, and multiculturalism), as well as contemporary issues such as Europe's "migration crisis", radicalization and violent extremism, and violence in families, schools and communities. Chapters contextualize each issue within specific social ecological frameworks in order to reflect on the multiplicity of influences that affect different outcomes and to discuss how the findings can be applied in different contexts. The volume also provides solutions and hope through its focus on youth empowerment and peacebuilding programs for children and families. This forward-thinking volume offers a multitude of views, approaches, and strategies for research and activism drawn from peace psychology scholars and United Nations researchers and practitioners. This books multi-layered emphasis on context, structural determinants of peace and conflict, and use of research for action towards social cohesion for children and youth has not been brought together in other peace psychology literature to the same extent. Children and Peace: From Research to Action will be a useful resource for peace psychology academics and students, as well as social and developmental psychology academics and students, peace and development practitioners and activists, policy makers who need to make decisions about the matters covered in the book, child rights advocates and members of multilateral organizations such as the UN.

    Title: The Culture of Capital Punishment in Japan
    Publisher(s): Springer
    Document type: Online Resource
    Physical description: 1 electronic resource (125 pages)
    ISBN (invalid): 9783030320867
    Identifier: 10.1007/978-3-030-32086-7
    Footnote: English
    Abstract: This open access book provides a comparative perspective on capital punishment in Japan and the United States. Alongside the US, Japan is one of only a few developed democracies in the world which retains capital punishment and continues to carry out executions on a regular basis. There are some similarities between the two systems of capital punishment but there are also many striking differences. These include differences in capital jurisprudence, execution method, the nature and extent of secrecy surrounding death penalty deliberations and executions, institutional capacities to prevent and discover wrongful convictions, orientations to lay participation and to victim participation, and orientations to "democracy" and governance. Johnson also explores several fundamental issues about the ultimate criminal penalty, such as the proper role of citizen preferences in governing a system of punishment and the relevance of the feelings of victims and survivors.
