Contested illnesses : citizens, science, and health social movements by Phil Brown( )

11 editions published between 2011 and 2017 in English and held by 1,869 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The politics and science of health and disease remain contested terrain. This interdisciplinary work engages with both public health policy and social science, asserting that science, activism and policy are not separate issues and showing how the contribution of environmental factors in disease is often overlooked

Incomplete streets : processes, practices and possibilities by Stephen Zavestoski( Book )

13 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 228 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The most prolific and persistent product of the unfolding vision of 'liveable cities' and 'cities for people' has been the genesis and growth of 'complete streets;' a concept and movement that has exploded across the urban planning, transportation planning, environmental policy, sustainable communities, and other scenes. This book about those where important missing narratives in the complete streets discourse and practice result in streets that are "complete" for some but not others. It applies a critical perspective on the rhetoric and practice of complete streets that goes beyond seeing streets as merely functional spaces for moving people and objects"--

Sur la piste environnementale menaces sanitaires et mobilisations profanes by M Akrich( )

1 edition published in 2013 in French and held by 63 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Repérer des victimes, confondre des suspects : les mobilisations dans le domaine de la santé environnementale se présentent désormais comme de véritables enquêtes policières. À la différence près que, dans ce domaine, les investigations ne sont pas menées uniquement par des enquêteurs professionnels. Les « profanes » cherchent eux aussi à rendre visibles les menaces auxquelles ils pensent être exposés et à établir la réalité des dommages dont ils s'estiment les victimes. Cet ouvrage rassemble une série de travaux anglo-saxons pionniers sur des affaires célèbres qui illustrent le rôle crucial joué par les non-spécialistes dans les controverses portant sur les liens entre l'environnement et la santé

The Carbon Frame: Lobbying for Renewable Energy in the European Union by Kyle S Herman( Book )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This paper demonstrates how using the word "carbon" within global warming debates severely impedes lobbyists in favor of building stronger renewable energy policies in the European Union (EU). Within the EU, carbon is widely used to speak about many of the perils of climate change, global warming, energy policy, and contingent subject matters. In political circles, media outlets, and public debates, carbon acts a the pillar for many policies, discussions, and ideas related to fundamental errors of transferring energy from fossil fuels and nuclear sources. At the same time, however, limiting carbon does not necessarily preclude fossil fuels, such as natural gas, or uranium fuels, such as nuclear energy, from becoming central sources of future energy supplies. This is a major pitfall of arguing within "the carbon frame", which this paper defines as any usage of the word carbon to situate debates or discussions regarding energy policy. Using the carbon frame is found to directly impede the progress and efficacy of the Environmental Non-Governmental (ENGO) energy lobby in the EU. This paper uses empirical data, drawn from research as an ENGO lobbyist in the EU, to show how using the carbon frame will continue to drive EU policy towards favoring natural gas, carbon capture and storage (CCS), and nuclear energy, as opposed to building stronger renewable energy policies, which are stated goals of the ENGO lobby

The Flow of Water, Power, and Ideas: Water Commodification in Cape Town, South Africa and the Stratified Experiences of Time and Space Compression by Jenna Washburn( Book )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

I use the neoliberalization of the water sector in Cape Town, South Africa in order to test my theory of unequal development. I assert that the neoliberal economic practices of water commodification, business-friendly tariff policies, and prepaid management devices keep people along the periphery from accessing water, power, and ideas -- thus causing a stratification of time and space compression between the core and the periphery. By painting a theoretical picture of world cities, I wish to complicate the dominant views of time/space compression and suggest that, much like development and arguably because of it, time and space compression actually becomes a stratified experience in the geographical space of a world city. When a city turns global and attaches into the international space, it detaches from its local context. In the core of the city, made up of its financial district, business sector, and wealthy neighborhoods, time and space are very compressed because they operate closely to the global network of exchange at highs speeds. However, along the periphery of the city populated by mostly working-class or unemployed people, time is actually experienced at a much slower pace than the global network and the peripheral space is kept remote, distant, and detached from the core. This stratification of time and space compression is then used as a further weapon of subjugation against those living along the periphery and intensifies the underdevelopment with which the stratification originated

Challenging Space through Activism: Scaling Local and Global Issues at the 2012 London Olympic Games by Bridget Botelho( Book )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This qualitative study focuses on issues of space created by the Olympic Games in London and the ways in which activists demonstrated against these issues by using space to their advantage. The Olympic Games is a phenomenon that scales local, national and international space in various ways, through its effects on global culture, identity, and economic processes. The games have a history of protest and activism, but the issues created by the games and struggles against them are not often discussed. My study aims to analyze the spatial effects of the Olympics on a local and global level through the stories of activism. I discuss the ways in which the Olympic games affects space for a host city, through influencing local politics to unleash spatial practices that favor private development over public necessity. To counter spatial issues including eviction, the seizure of green space, and limitations to access of space, activists in turn use spatial politics to demonstrate against Olympic development. The Olympic Games as a global institution also effects larger spatial practices, such as their corporate sponsorship program, which activists also used spatial tactics to demonstrate against these processes. I use geographic theory of space and sociological theory of Olympic processes to present a comprehensive analysis of the challenges that activists at the 2012 Olympic games were faced with. Data includes observations of demonstrations leading up to the opening ceremonies of the Olympic games and interview material from counter-Olympic activists. Through my analysis of the ways in which space creates problems and opportunities for activism, and the unique situation the Olympic Games present for spatial politics, I aim to provide examples of strengthened activism against spatial issues
Planning Cities, Economically or Communally: A comparative study of Amsterdam and San Francisco by Raina Dawn Whittekiend( Book )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Globalization has spun “community” off its axis. What once defined community is no longer the current state of the community. Increased economic transactions have led to the instability of communities that once depended on one another at the local level. These communities are now dependent on systems that do not know nor understand their actors. This lack of relationship between development and subject is witnessed and highly scrutinized in developing countries all over the world and has been intensely researched in academic literature. This thesis intends to better understand why in modernized global cities these same processes of development and subject take place without community input. This thesis will analyze two major global cities, San Francisco, California and Amsterdam, Netherlands. The analysis will review the accessible green space in both cities which will determine the access to non-transactional activities. The results should show that increased access to non-transactional activities through access to green space increases a city’s level of sustainability through increasing community access to natural environments or more broadly to non-transactional spaces with natural environments being the most prevalent type. Having access to green space and non-transactional activities has the ability to increase awareness and community development surrounding sustainable living
