Cooperation for a peaceful and sustainable world by Chen Bo( )

13 editions published between 2012 and 2014 in English and held by 982 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume contains articles by distinguished scholars and practitioners on the role of cooperation in non-violent management and the reduction of conflict. In all areas of conflict, namely political; ethnic; resource; fiscal, and environmental, it is argued that a cooperative and not unilateral action is most effective. The articles address topics such as the Global Peace Index, language as a tool of reconciliation, decentralization, and civil-military approaches and present case studies from across the world. This volume discusses how negotiation, mediation and arbitration lead to a more win-win solution and is essential reading for scholars in peace science, especially those interested in the mechanics of peace and in ensuring its sustainability."--P.

War, peace and security by Jacques Fontanel( )

15 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 799 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Although all religions and cultures preach the gospel and virtues of peace, the history of mankind is the history of war and peace; millions have perished in international and domestic conflicts, and many wars have been fought on behalf of those same religions and people who call for peace around the world. During the 20th century, at the height of human civilization, we have seen two world wars and many devastating region conflicts. Although the last two decades have seen a prevalence of domestic, rather than international conflict, these have been as vicious and as destructive as any other war. Further, we are still facing the threat of nuclear confrontation, and a new kind of war - the war on terror - is also taking place.Although there is widespread desire for peace, there is no sustained advocacy of it by our political and cultural leaders. Citizens the world over have become more insecure because of international and domestic conflicts, genocide, terrorism, drug and criminal activities, weapons of mass destruction, pandemic threats of infectious diseases like Aids and HIV, natural disasters, poverty, resource constraints, climate change, threats to the international financial system, and much else. All these are interrelated at some level. In the name of international and domestic security, billions of dollars are wasted on unproductive military spending in both developed and developing countries, when millions are starving and living without basic human needs.This book contains a number of original articles relating to military spending, military industrial establishments, peace keeping, terrorism, environmental security and democratic peace, prepared by leading scholars in the field. Since we are living in a globalized world, global security rather than national security is the relevant issue. Global security must be consistent with and complimentary to a basic human security, which preserves freedom from threats to people's rights and safety. Because peace is not just the absence of violence. It is related to all the above issues - the socio-economic, political and physical environment of the world. Making this clear is the focus of the book
Business, ethics and peace by Luk Bouckaert( )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 764 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Good business needs a peaceful and just world in which to operate and prosper. Likewise, peace thrives in a healthy economic environment. However, many companies - either directly or indirectly - are involved in the arms race and in a battle to exploit and control scarce resources. As a result of the ambiguous power of business, a timely reflection on its impact on war and peace is needed as well as a conscious pro-peace commitment. Business, Ethics and Peace gathers a selection of papers presented at the International SPES Conference Business for Peace, Strategies for Hope at Ypres, April 10-12, 2014. Among the many initiatives commemorating the centennial of World War I, this project focuses on the ethical need to prevent the next conflict. It interprets and presents peace as a holistic and evolving concept, defining the need for an ethical charter of human rights and responsibilities. The papers illustrate the impact of religion in peace management and present solutions and practices for corporate peace-building

Management and regional science for economic development by Manas Chatterji( Book )

16 editions published between 1982 and 1983 in English and held by 287 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The greatest challenge facing mankind today is the immense disparity in the levels of income among people in different parts of the globe. The growth rate of income of the poor countries is consistantiy far below the rate of the advanced, industrialized nations. Due to low income and a high propensity to consume, there is very little left in these countries for investment. A major portion of the resources available is devoted to military expenditures. This continual decline in the standard of living, coupled with poverty and unemployment, will lead to social and political upheaval in these countries, which affects developed countries. Because of high capacity and low population growth, the market of the developed countries is already saturated. To maintain the high standard of living in the developed countries it is necessary to have a strong and stable developing world. It is gratifying to see that both groups of countries see the need for peaceful economic growth; however, the amount of cooperation between countries and the material help from the developed countries are far from satisfactory. The economic and social scientists have investigated the best way to achieve the transformation from a poverty-ridden condition to a decent existence. Their studies have proceeded in two different directions. One is a more descriptive, historical analysis and the other is theoretical model building. Although these studies have achieved a relatively high level of perfection, one significant factor is sometimes missing
Environment, regional science, and interregional modeling by Manas Chatterji( Book )

23 editions published between 1975 and 1976 in English and German and held by 282 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This second volume of proceedings of the International Conference on Regional Science, Energy and Environment (Louvain, May 1975) contains papers related to general and partial equilibrium models of regional and urban development, in which natural and human resources playa dominant role. It need not be stressed that environmental factors and resource management have,to some extent, been neglected in postwar economic research. Unfortunately, a world-wide energy crisis or more local environmental disruptions were necessary to draw the economist's attention on the increasing imbalance between man and environment. The topics treated in this volume reflect the shift in economic research which has taken place since the early seventies. They can be classified roughly into 4 fields. The first field deals with a welfare approach to environmental deterioration. The second area covers models of resource allocation that contain environmental constraints. The third class of problems focuses on the relationship between environment and urban development. Finally, some methodological papers are included that explore new areas in regional and ~nterregional model building. Klaassen opens this volume with a paper on the impact of rising energy prices on the structure of regional development and environment, He analyses the change in size of all potentials and the consequent decrease in the volume of traffic. Besides these short-run influences, a :reallocat{o~ of households and firms may be expected in the long-run

The economics of international security : essays in honour of Jan Tinbergen by Manas Chatterji( Book )

13 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 248 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Cold War is over. But a new type of multiplier structure with regional conflicts is emerging. Pressures to reduce military spending in the developed countries are increasing due to budget deficits, recession, need for investment in social infrastructure, and so on. This is counterbalanced by the loss of jobs due to military cutbacks. Developing countries faced with the immense task of reducing poverty are unable to decrease military spending due to the emergence of regional conflicts and internal problems, whereas the dissolution of the Soviet Union creates new nuclear risks. The problems of international and regional security are interwoven with the declining world-wide economic condition, restructuring of economic alliance, environmental problems and declining manufacturing activities. The objective of this book is to present an integrated set of original papers from leading authorities in the field related to optimal balance between arms reduction and regional and international security. The emphasis is on economics and management rather than politics and diplomacy
Economic issues of disarmament : contributions from peace economics and peace science( Book )

13 editions published between 1992 and 1993 in English and held by 240 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

During the cold war the superpower arms race generated an enormous amount of economic activity. Weapons manufacturing became a boom industry, responsible for the creation of thousands of new jobs and a significant portion of global economic growth. The end of the cold war has had a powerfully negative effect on the arms industry, resulting in the wholescale cancellation of defence contracts and necessitating a fundamental reorganization of the industry. This timely volume addresses the global economic effects of this development. With an introduction by Nobel Laureate Kenneth Arrow, the work examines such issues as the effect of economic conversion on the military economy; NATO and Warsaw Pact mutual disarmament; the ramifications of "global peace" or global business; military spending, disarmament and the Third World; the "peace dividend"; the environmental effects of disarmament; the impact of military spending on global health and health care; and a wide range of other pertinent and pressing issues
