In 100 chapters, 132 authors from 49 countries analyze the global debate on environmental, human and gender, energy, food, livelihood, health and water security concepts and policy problems. In 10 parts they discuss the context and the securitization of global environmental change and of extreme natural and societal outcomes. They suggest a new research programme to move from knowledge to action, from reactive to proactive policies and to explore the opportunities of environ-mental cooperation for a new peace policy."--Jacket

Kernwaffen und Rüstungskontrolle : ein interdisziplinäres Studienbuch by Hans Günter Brauch( Book )

11 editions published in 1984 in German and held by 103 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Die Geschichte der Riistungskontrolle, besonders fiir Kernwaffen, ist bedriickend. Von der Ausnahme des ABM-Vertrages abgesehen, der auch in Gefahr ist, hat es keine Vereinbarung gegeben, die die Erwei terung der Arsenale in immer neuen Dimensionen, Vermehrung der Sprengkopfe, Verkleinerung der Sprengkraft, Verfeinerung der Zielgenauigkeit, verhindert hatte. 1m Gegenteil: Immer neue Grau zonen entstanden .- bewugt, mug man bei der Intelligenz der Betei ligten sagen -- und offneten das Rennen auf dem Gebiete der Mittel streckenwaffen, wiihrend man iiber die interkontinentalen sprach. Heute ist das Feld der Kurzstreckenraketen nicht verschlossen, wah rend man iiber die Mittelstreckenraketen verhandelt. Wah rend Genf auf beiden Gebieten beschiiftigt ist, wird das Rennen auf dem Gebie te der Marschflugkorper (Cruise Missiles) sorgsam offengehalten, ob wohl es noch keine Riistungskontrollmoglichkeiten fiir Cruise Missiles gibt. Schlieglich sind die Vorbereitungen uniibersehbar, Waf fen in den Weltraum zu bringen. In der Theorie sind eine ganze Reihe dieser Faktoren destabilisie rend. Dag sie es in der Praxis nicht sind, mag auch daran liegen dag die Fiille der Faktoren und Moglichkeiten schwer iiberschaubar ge worden ist und jedenfalls das Risiko unertraglich grog bleibt
