Ethnicity, nationalism and conflict in and after the Soviet Union : the mind aflame by V. A Tishkov( Book )

9 editions published between 1996 and 1997 in English and Undetermined and held by 501 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Valery Tishkov is a well-known Russian historian and anthropologist, and former Minister of Nationalities in Yeltsin's government. His account of ethnicity, nationalism, and conflict in the territory of the former Soviet Union draws on inside knowledge of major events and extensive primary research. Challenging established interpretations of ethnic factors, Tishkov argues that ethnicity has a multifaceted role: it is the most accessible basis for political mobilization; a means of controlling power and resources in a transforming society; and therapy for the great trauma suffered by individuals and groups under previous regimes. This complexity helps explain the contradictory nature and outcomes of public ethnic policies based on a doctrine of ethnonationalism. Tishkov concludes that the Soviet and post-Soviet nations, as well as the current violent ethno-politics, stem from decrepit doctrinal projects, from elitist efforts to build a state on ethnic principles and a society on exclusivist identities, and from political malfunctioning

Gender justice, development, and rights by Maxine Molyneux( Book )

14 editions published between 2002 and 2012 in English and held by 346 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Gender Justice, Development, and Rights reflects on the significance accorded in international development policy to rights and democracy in the post-Cold War era. Key items on the contemporary policy agenda - neo-liberal economic and social policies, democracy, and multi-culturalism - are addressed here by leading scholars and regional specialists through theoretical reflections and detailed case studies. Together they constitute a collection which casts contemporary liberalism in a distinctive light by applying a gender perspective to the analysis of political and policy processes. Case studies from Latin America, sub-Saharan Africa, the Middle East, East-Central Europe, South and South-East Asia contribute a cross-cultural dimension to the analysis of contemporary liberalism - the dominant value system in the modern world - by examining how it both exists in and is resisted in developing and post-transition societies."--Jacket

Gendered peace : women's struggles for post-war justice and reconciliation by Donna Pankhurst( Book )

5 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 288 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume contributes to the growing literature on women, conflict and peacebuilding by focusing on the moments after a peace accord, or some other official ending of a conflict, often denoted as 'post-conflict' or 'post-war'. Such moments often herald great hope for holding to account those who committed grave wrongs during the conflict, and for a better life in the future. For many women, both of these hopes are often very quickly shattered in starkly different ways to the hopes of men. Such periods are often characterized by violence and insecurities, and the official ending of a war ofte

Forests and livelihoods : by Solon Barraclough( Book )

6 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 257 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The social dynamics of deforestation and of forest protection are the ongoing interactions among social actors and processes that determine the use and management of forests. Based on a vast amount of research and detailed case-studies in Brazil, Central America, Nepal and Tanzania, as well as other work dealing with wider themes and regions, the book argues that most current discussions of increased rates of deforestation and perceived accompanying environmental crises are overly simplistic. Institutional reforms and policy measures that have been undertaken in developing countries usually failed to protect either the forests or people's livelihoods. Technical solutions to deforestation are only one element in what are essentially political questions. The central issue is not how to halt deforestation but rather how to manage forest areas and natural resources in order to meet social goals on a more equitable and sustainable basis. Conventional wisdom that attributes deforestation primarily to peasant ignorance and population growth is questioned, as are other single-factor explanations such as market and policy failures
Social change and conservation : environmental politics and impacts of national parks and protected areas by K. B Ghimire( Book )

3 editions published between 1997 and 2006 in English and held by 242 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Drawing on case studies from North America, Europe, Asia, Central America and Africa, it critically reviews current trends in protected area management, and shows how local people have been affected in terms of their customary rights, livelihoods, wellbeing and social cohesion. The loss of secure livelihoods ultimately threatens conservation, as poverty and environmental degradation intensify in and around protected areas. The leading authorities who have contributed to this ground breaking volume argue for a thorough overhaul of conservation thinking and practice
The United Nations and civil society : legitimating global governance--whose voice? by Nora McKeon( Book )

4 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 213 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The UN is able to recognize key global challenges but is beset by difficulties in trying to resolve them. It represents the current global political balance but is also the only international institution that can move it forward. Civil society can be a catalyst for this kind of change. In this book, Nora McKeon provides a comprehensive analysis of UN engagement with civil society. The book pays particular attention to food and agriculture, which now lie at the heart of global governance issues. McKeon shows that politically meaningful space for civil society can be introduced into UN policy dialogue. The United Nations and Civil Society also makes the case that it is only by engaging with organizations which legitimately speak for the 'poor' that the UN can promote equitable, sustainable development and build global democracy from the ground up. This book has strong ramifications for global governance, civil society and social movements, as well as for the contemporary debate over the future of food."--Jacket
Social and solidarity economy : beyond the fringe by Peter Utting( Book )

3 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 95 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As economic crises, growing inequality and climate change prompt a global debate on the meaning and trajectory of development, increasing attention is focusing on 'social and solidarity economy' as a distinctive approach to sustainable and rights-based development. While we are beginning to understand what social and solidarity economy is, what it promises and how it differs from 'business as usual', we know far less about whether it can really move beyond its fringe status in many countries and regions. Under what conditions can social and solidarity economy scale up and scale out - that is
