Green governance : ecological survival, human rights, and the law of the commons by Burns H Weston( )

18 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 1,095 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The vast majority of the world's scientists agree: we have reached a point in history where we are in grave danger of destroying Earth's life-sustaining capacity. But our attempts to protect natural ecosystems are increasingly ineffective because our very conception of the problem is limited; we treat 'the environment' as its own separate realm, taking for granted prevailing but outmoded conceptions of economics, national sovereignty, and international law. Green Governance is a direct response to the mounting calls for a paradigm shift in the way humans relate to the natural environment. It opens the door to a new set of solutions by proposing a compelling new synthesis of environmental protection based on broader notions of economics and human rights and on commons-based governance. Going beyond speculative abstractions, the book proposes a new architecture of environmental law and public policy that is as practical as it is theoretically sound"--Page [i]

6 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 518 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Provides a clear and accessible guide to the economics of anti-capitalism ... It takes into consideration numerous factors of the post credit-crunch, crisis-ridden, austerity-inflicted world of the 2010s. There are Greens who think we must hold back economic growth and Marxists who believe the economy must move forward along capitalist lines before there can be revolutionary change; there are those who remain faithful to notions of collective or State ownership of all aspects of the economy, and those who think various kinds of reform or regulation of capitalist practice is more appropriate. Economics after Capitalism is a modern guidebook to the complicated terrain of alternatives to global capitalism

Die Welt der Commons : Muster gemeinsamen Handelns by Silke Helfrich( )

5 editions published in 2015 in German and Undetermined and held by 222 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Die Logik des Kapitalismus heißt teilen. Nur teilen darin nicht die Menschen, sondern sie werden geteilt. Es ist daher problematisch, Commons in kapitalistischen Kategorien zu erklären. Wer die Welt der Commons betritt, begegnet einer anderen Logik, einer anderen Sprache und anderen Kategorien. Nach 'Commons. Für eine neue Politik jenseits von Markt und Staat' (2012) erkunden in diesem Band Autorinnen und Autoren aller Kontinente die anthropologischen Grundlagen der Commons und stellen sie zugleich als konkrete Utopien vor. Sie machen nachvollziehbar, dass alles Commons sein oder werden kann: durch Prozesse geteilter Verantwortung, in Laboratorien für Selbstorganisation und durch Freiheit in Verbundenheit. Commoners realisieren, was schon heute machbar ist und morgen selbstverständlich sein wird. Das zeigen über 40 Beispiele aus aller Welt. Dieses Buch erweitert unseren Möglichkeitssinn für die Gestaltung von Wirtschaft und Gesellschaft. (Quelle:

The wealth of the commons : a world beyond market and state by David Bollier( Book )

12 editions published between 2010 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 115 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We are poised between an old world that no longer works and a new one struggling to be born. Surrounded by centralized hierarchies on the one hand and predatory markets on the other, people around the world are searching for alternatives. The Wealth of the Commons explains how millions of commoners have organized to defend their forests and fisheries, reinvent local food systems, organize productive online communities, reclaim public spaces, improve environmental stewardship and re-imagine the very meaning of "progress" and governance. In short, how they've built their commons. The Wealth of the Commons is about history, political change, public policy and cultural transformation on a global scale--but most of all, it's about individual commoners taking charge of their lives and their endangered resources

It presents a bold and compelling alternative to the dead-end, predatory market-state system."--

Implications for defining quality of service and new business models are discussed, as well as the dynamics of competition in a networked environment. The second section, "How Intranets are Transforming Organizations," addresses transformations in organizational structures, leadership styles, and reward systems within companies brought on by electronic mail, intranets, and shared access to company files. The third section, "The Promise of Virtual Keiretsus," describes one model for interfirm electronic cooperation which is based on the networks of Japanese businesses that enter into long-term commitments among partners. In the final section, "Networked Environments, Community, and the New Market for Loyalty," the report examines the effect of technology on identify formation, interpersonal relationships, and community building. A list of conference participants is appended. (AEF)
The rise of netpolitik : how the internet is changing international politics and diplomacy : a report of the Eleventh Annual Aspen Institute Roundtable on Information Technology by David Bollier( Book )

5 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 46 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This document is an interpretive synthesis of the discussion at a conference sponsored by the Aspen Institute that sought to develop new ways to understand how the Internet is changing the powers of the nation-state, the conduct of international relations, and the definitions of nation security. This report examines how the Internet and other digital technologies are changing the conduct of world affairs and what these changes mean for the understanding of power in international relations and how political interests are pursued. Part I explores how the faster velocity of information and the diversification of information sources are complicating international diplomacy. Part II explores how the Internet is affecting cross-cultural and political relationships and elevating the importance of "soft power" in international affairs. Part III examines storytelling as one of the most universal human tools for expressing values, identity, and culture. Appendices include: a statement titled "The Impact of Information Flow" by Boris Trajkovski, President of the Republic of Macedonia; a list of conference participants; a description of the Aspen Institute Communications and Society Program; and an annotated bibliography of previous publications from the Aspen Institute.

Protecting future generations through commons by Conseil de l'Europe( Book )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 37 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The recent austerity measures currently adopted in numerous European countries assume that a rise in public debt should automatically result in cuts to social programmes and the privatisation of "inefficiently" managed resources. This type of reasoning is being used to justify the destruction of social rights of citizens for the profit of the private sector, resulting in more limited access to the most fundamental resources such as water, nature, housing, culture, knowledge and information, mainly for the most vulnerable members of society. Such a view, informed solely by short-term growth and profit cycles, is endangering access to those resources not only for current generations but for future ones as well. This book is an attempt to go beyond liberal approaches to intergenerational and distributive justice. It emphasises the role of commons and communities of the commons, driven by the desire to defend and perpetuate those fundamental resources under the threat of expropriation by the state and the market. This book also offers policy makers and citizens, who wish to accept their political responsibility by being active and refusing corporate ideology, some best practices as well as methods and solutions for renewing the configurations of societal relationships through commons, thereby integrating the interests of future generations in the European Community's decision-making processes and institutions. This is a contribution by the Council of Europe and the International University College of Turin to the protection of the dignity of every person, especially of those who, even though unable to enjoy existing social rights, have the right to benefit from choices and policies that ensure that human life remains unspoiled"--Page 4 of cover
