National counter-terrorism strategies legal, institutional, and public policy dimensions in the US, UK, France, Turkey and Russia by Robert W Orttung( )
6 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 1,142 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This publication discusses and compares various reactions to the challenges of mass-scale terrorism. Five countries are at the centre of the research: The United States, Great Britain, France, Turkey and Russia, each of them being a victim of multiple terrorist attacks. This volume is grounded in a conceptual presumption that the countries directly affected by terrorism produce different types of responses. Of course, there is much in common in all five country cases, but the most interesting part of the research exercise is identifying the divergences. Based upon this comparative analysis, th

Large-scale victimisation as a potential source of terrorist activities importance of regaining security in post-conflict societies by NATO Advanced Research Workshop on Large-Scale Victimization Due to Protracted Conflicts as a Potential Source of Terrorist Activities and Regaining Security in Post-Conflict Societies( )
4 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 1,043 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This publication presents a subject that is, unfortunately, as significant today as it was two years ago. Sadly, this continuing relevance seems to confirm the views of the German radical pacifist Kurt Tucholsky, who stated in response to the atrocities and sufferings of WWI: ''But men never ever learnt from history, and they will not do so in the future. Hic Rhodus!'' Recent events in Iraq, the Middle East, East Timor or the Democratic Republic of Congo, and possible links regarding issues of terrorism, raise the question what criminological and victimological research offers in assisting to

The conversion of liquid rocket fuels risk assessment, technology and treatment options for the conversion of abandoned liquid ballistic missile propellants (fuels and oxidizers) in Azerbaijan by Wolfgang P. W Spyra( )
4 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 674 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The Conversion of Liquid Rocket Fuels is the first volume to be dedicated to the demilitarization of Azerbaijan. It is the product of an exciting workshop which brought together participants from NATO member countries and partner countries to share ideas and experience. This publication investigates the possible treatment methods for hazardous ballistic missile wastes being stored in Azerbaijan. The uniqueness of this volume lies in its interdisciplinary nature with authors coming from a diverse range of fields and experiences. Topics include risk assessment of hazards, environmental and human toxicology, technological options for chemical disposal, and comparative case studies from similar projects in Moldova and Georgia. Also featured is an introduction to the field of demilitarisation and military conversion, and a cultural analysis of the emerging Republic of Azerbaijan. Those in military or civilian administrative positions who face the task of chemical waste disposal or demilitarization will find The Conversion of Liquid Rocket Fuels especially interesting. This volume brings new experiences and information to the field of environmental studies and war and armed conflict."--Publisher's description

International security in practice the politics of NATO-Russia diplomacy by Vincent Pouliot( )
2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 542 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"How do once bitter enemies move beyond entrenched rivalry at the diplomatic level? In one of the first attempts to apply practice theory to the study of International Relations, Vincent Pouliot builds on Pierre Bourdieu's sociology to devise a theory of practice of security communities and applies it to post-Cold War security relations between NATO and Russia. Based on dozens of interviews and a thorough analysis of recent history, Pouliot demonstrates that diplomacy has become a normal, though not a self-evident, practice between the two former enemies. He argues that this limited pacification is due to the intense symbolic power struggles that have plagued the relationship ever since NATO began its process of enlargement at the geographical and functional levels. So long as Russia and NATO do not cast each other in the roles that they actually play together, security community development is bound to remain limited"--Provided by publisher
Safety improvements through lessons learned from operational experience in nuclear research facilities by Francis Lambert( )
5 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 541 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
For operators of nuclear research facilities, it is of particular importance to investigate minor incidents: indeed, as safety demonstrations are generally based on the presence of several independent "lines of defence", only through attentive investigation of every occurrence, usually minor and of no consequence, can the level of trust placed in each of these defensive lines be confirmed, or the potential risks arising out of a possible weakness in the system be anticipated. The efficiency of the system is based on a rigorous procedure: stringent attention to all incidents, consideration of the potential consequences of the incidents in their most pessimistic scenarios, and promotion of a broad conception of transpositions of the events, in time and space, for experience feedback. This efficiency presumes motivation on the part of all those involved, hence the importance of dissociating from the concept of an "incident" any notion of "error" or "blame" both in internal analysis and in public communications. The nuclear industry has developed some very progressive tools for experience feedback, which could interest also management of other technological risks.; This book presents the proceedings of a NATO Advanced Workshop dedicated to this important matter of concern
Radiation and environmental safety in North-West Russia use of impact assessments and risk estimation by Per Strand( )
4 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 539 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The workshop attracted wide participation from relevant Russian and western organizations. International expertise from several related fields went together to produce a thorough understanding of the present status and how to develop the use of overall risk assessments and environmental impact assessments to ensure a sound use of resources when carrying out the tremendous work that must be carried out to clean up the cold war legacy. Important conclusions and recommendations have been produced and set out in the main report, providing a good basis for further development. Such development should note that safety and environmental performance can be addressed at three levels: compliance-focused; beyond compliance, towards best practice; and continuous improvement. The aim is to progress from a to b and eventually reach c. The levels refer both to operators' performance and regulators' and other stakeholders' expectations
Groundwater and ecosystems by Alper Baba( )
5 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 474 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Groundwater Dependent Ecosystems (GDEs) frequently exhibit rich biological diversity and can provide enormous economic wealth. In recent years, GDEs in many industrialized countries have shown signs of serious degradation, primarily the result of groundwater abstraction and pollution. Many such systems, including a number of well documented cases in Eastern Europe, are no longer sustainable. As a consequence, the conservation and sustainable management of GDEs has emerged as one of the most urgent environmental research priorities of our time. A large percentage of the world's population lives in cities and either depends on, or is affected in some way, by groundwater. Moreover, groundwater has become a very important and complex issue that attracts the interest of many diverse stakeholders. Many problems related to groundwater and ecosystems are shared by countries throughout the world and there is growing recognition that much can be gained by co-operation on an international scale.; This is no time to be complacent and it is critical that key problems be identified, that the potential consequences of these problems be understood, and that the development of solutions begins urgently. Important data gaps must be recognized and filled without delay
Environmental role of wetlands in headwaters by Josef Křeček( )
8 editions published between 2003 and 2006 in English and held by 470 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Internationally, the wetlands of headwater and upland regions provide many valuable environmental services. This book moves towards a more comprehensive inventory of the benefits and costs of headwater wetlands. It evaluates the research that tries to understand the tolerances, exchanges, checks and balances within headwater landscapes and the downstream impacts of changes in wetlands. It employs case studies and reviews from 21 nations spanning Europe, Africa, Asia and the Americas. It explores the new policy frameworks, changes in land husbandry, new systems for community education, participatory processes and technological interventions required for the effective management of headwater wetlands and the full integration of wetlands (including newly constructed wetlands) into environmental management and planning. In the past, most research dealt with wetlands as isolated features, this book examines wetlands in their watershed management context
