Private environmental regimes in developing countries : globally sown, locally grown by Ralph H Espach( Book )

15 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 269 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book assesses the recent growth and future prospects of private transnational environmental certification and standards regimes. Regimes of this type have proliferated in the last 20 years as businesses and environmental groups have sought to replace, or improve upon, traditional inter-governmental conventions and treaties. Recent theory and research suggest that these regimes transfer the environmental standards and norms of West Europe and North America outward, via trade and investment, to developing states worldwide. This book challenges this literature and examines in detail to what degree, and under what circumstances do these transnational regimes truly influence industrial environmental practices in developing countries

América latina en el nuevo sistema internacional( Book )

6 editions published in 2004 in Spanish and held by 27 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La 4ème de couv. indique : "El presente volumen, que siua América Latina en el contexto de los debates sobre la globalizacion economica y la naturaleza enormemente cambiante del sistema internacional, recoge el punto de vista de los estudiosos y los dirigentes politicos de las diversas regiones del continente ameicano. Los autores sostienen que la creciente diversificacion de los vinculos economicos y estratégicos plantea a los paises latinoamericanos nuevas opciones, y tambien nuevos riesgos. A lo largo del texto se insiste en advertir contra el exceso de optimismo respecto de los efectos de la globalizacion. Al conjugar las discusiones relativas a America Latina y las propuestas politicas que atanen a espacios mas amplios , en el libro se apuntan lucidas conclusiones en clave regional y fecundas reflexiones formuladas desde una perspectiva global. El nuevo prologo que actualiza la presente edicion examina la forma en que los atentados terroristas del 11 de septiembre de 2001 han cambiado a la comunidad internacional y a la agenda de seguridad de Estados Unidos y de las naciones del hemisferio. El argumento del prologo - coherente con los argumentos del libro - es que el fin de la guerra fria brinda nuevas oportunidades de protagonismo a las naciones de America Latina en el sistema internacional. La clave es entender el sistema internacionl en el cual estas operan."

Criminal organizations and illicit trafficking in Guatemala's border communities( Book )

2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Guatemala faces a growing, potentially existential threat. Territories and routes which once experienced moderate trafficking of goods, humans, and drugs have become superhighways for the transfer of high value products, chemical products, weapons, and cash required by the illicit drug industry. Due to Guatemala's border with Mexico and a permissive environment for contraband and crime, the country has become a funnel for 90 percent of the cocaine sent from South America to the United States, the largest drug market in the world. Various independent and governmental reports have explained the gravity of the violence and organized crime in Guatemala, and the danger these factors pose to regional stability. These reports focus on the failures of national security policies, attempts to reform the national police and judicial systems, and international counter-narcotics efforts. Local dynamics which underpin this national crisis, such as the relationships between criminal networks and local authorities and institutions, go overlooked. This report tackles this gap by examining the effects of illicit trafficking and criminal organizations within the three border municipalities of Guatemala: Sayaxché in the department of Petén, Gualán in Zacapa, and Malacatán in San Marcos. These municipalities sit on important smuggling routes and are well-known by Guatemalan police, intelligence agencies and local populations to be regional centers for organized crime. In this report, we examine the local economic, political and social variables of these communities and how these factors shape the relationships between criminal organizations and local communities. The data is based on interviews and information collected during weeks of field investigation between April and July 2011. A comparison of these how these three economically and politically diverse communities have coped with local drug trafficking and criminal groups provides a broader understanding of the relational dynamics that determine the impacts of trafficking on nearby communities. Our fieldwork and analysis lead us to conclude that effective border control and law enforcement in Guatemala is more about changing the habits and attitudes of local residents and communities, than it is about improving technology, infrastructure, or state presence per se. Based on these conclusions, we offer recommendations for policies designed to contribute to Guatemalan and international efforts to improve security, state presence, and the rule of law in these and other border communities

Differentiating Between Partner Capacity Building Efforts for Counterterrorism and Counternarcotics Missions( Book )

2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The U.S. military routinely provides training, equipment, and financial assistance to foreign militaries in support of common security objectives. The U.S. Congress has directed the Department of Defense (DOD) to focus some of its partner capacity building efforts in specific mission areas, such as counterterrorism and counternarcotics. Periodically, Congress and senior DOD leaders request updates and assessments of ongoing partner capacity building efforts. In some instances, these assessments can be clear and straightforward. In other circumstances, such as when there are multiple assistance programs for a given country, or where the mission-focus of capacity building efforts overlap, it can be difficult to distinguish among the missions and/or desired partner nation capabilities that DOD partner capacity building efforts support
