Reflexive governance for global public goods by Eric Brousseau( )

13 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 1,210 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This title considers traditional public economy theory of public goods provision as oversimplified, because it is state centered and fiscally focused. It develops a multidisciplinary look at the challenges of understanding and designing appropriate governance regimes for different types of goods
Sustainability science for strong sustainability by Tom Dedeurwaerdere( )

11 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 269 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The dynamism of science has been catalytic for human prosperity in recent history. Conventional perspectives of the ivory tower model of modern science are, however, rivalled by the failure of humanity to tackle global crises of an economic, environmental and social nature. Operational solutions to these pressures have grown and exposed the pitfalls of modern science to date. Research institutions globally are eschewing traditional practice, converging around ideas of transdisciplinary sustainability science. New practice based on science-society research partnerships, experiential learning in higher education and iterative and participatory modelling has become manifest. Sustainability Science for Strong Sustainability investigates the core concepts, tools and institutional strategies of this evolving field. Prominent research programs within heterodox economics, the environmental sciences and transition theory are explored through diverse case studies, revealing challenges and advancements for transdisciplinary research. The need for reform of modern science is facilitated by consideration of action points to overcome the institutional barriers of putting sustainability science into practice. Up to date knowledge on the practice of transdisciplinary research for sustainability will benefit researchers in environmental economics and environmental management. Senior policy officials active in research policy and environmental planning will find the book's analysis invaluable to their practice. Uniquely offering a broad review of transdisciplinary sustainability research, this book is constructive supplementary reading for post-graduate teaching
Governing digitally integrated genetic resources, data, and literature : global intellectual property strategies for a redesigned microbial research commons by Jerome H Reichman( )

14 editions published between 2015 and 2017 in English and held by 229 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The free exchange of microbial genetic information is an established public good, facilitating research on medicines, agriculture, and climate change. However, over the past quarter-century, access to genetic resources has been hindered by intellectual property claims from developed countries under the World Trade Organization's TRIPS Agreement (1994) and by claims of sovereign rights from developing countries under the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) (1992). In this volume, the authors examine the scientific community's responses to these obstacles and advise policymakers on how to harness provisions of the Nagoya Protocol (2010) that allow multilateral measures to support research. By pooling microbial materials, data, and literature in a carefully designed transnational e-infrastructure, the scientific community can facilitate access to essential research assets while simultaneously reinforcing the open access movement. The original empirical surveys of responses to the CBD included here provide a valuable addition to the literature on governing scientific knowledge commons"--
Global environmental commons : analytical and political challenges in building governance mechanisms by Eric; Dedeurwaerdere Brousseau( Book )

2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 157 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Environmental challenges, and the potential solutions to address them, have a direct effect on living standards, the organization of economies, major infrastructures, and modes of urbanization. Since the publication of path-breaking contributions on the governance of environmental resources in the early 1990s, many political initiatives have been taken, numerous governance experiments have been conducted, and a large multi-disciplinary field of research has opened up. This interdisciplinary book takes stock of the knowledge that has accumulated to date, and addresses new challenges in the provision of environmental goods. It focuses on three essential dimensions with respect to governance. First, it addresses the issue of designing governance solutions through analyzing systems of rules, and levels of organization, in the governance and management of environmental issues. Second, it draws renewed attention to the negotiation processes among stakeholders playing a crucial role in reaching agreements over issues and solutions, and in choosing and implementing particular policy instruments. Finally, it shows that compliance depends on a combination of formal rules, enforced by recognized authorities, and informal obligations, such as social and individual norms. The evolution of the research frontiers on environmental governance shows that more legitimate and informed processes of collective decision, and more subtle and effective ways of managing compliance, can contribute to more effective policy. However, this book also illustrates that more democratic and effective governance should rely on more direct and pluralistic forms of involvement of citizens and stakeholders in the collective decision making processes."--
Handbook on the economics of ecosystem services and biodiversity by P. A. L. D Nunes( Book )

11 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 99 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In recent years, there has been a marked proliferation in the literature on economic approaches to ecosystem management, which has created a subsequent need for real understanding of the scope and the limits of the economic approaches to ecosystems and biodiversity. Within this Handbook, carefully commissioned original contributions from acknowledged experts in the field address the new concepts and their applications, identify knowledge gaps and provide authoritative recommendations
The digital public domain : foundations for an open culture by Melanie Dulong de Rosnay( )

2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 65 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Digital technology has made culture more accessible than ever before. Texts, audio, pictures and video can easily be produced, disseminated, used remixed using devices that are increasingly user-friendly and affordable. However, along with this technological democratization comes a paradoxical flipside: the norms regulating culture's use -- copyright and related rights -- have become increasingly restrictive. This book brings together essays by academics, librarians, entrepreneurs, activists and policy maders, who were all part of the EU-funded Communia projetc. Together the authors argue that literature, music, the output of scientific research, educational material or public sector information -- is fundamental to a healthy society. The essays range from more theoretical papers on copyright and the history of the public domain, to practical examples and case studies of recent projects that have engaged with the principles of Open Access and Creative Commons licensing. The Digital Public Domain opens up discussion and offers practical solutions to the difficult question of the regulation of culture in the digital age
Implementing the Nagoya Protocol : comparing Access and Benefit-Sharing regimes in Europe by Brendan Coolsaet( )

4 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 41 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The adoption of the Nagoya Protocol on Access and Benefit-sharing to the Convention on Biological Diversity in 2010 is a major landmark for the global governance of genetic resources and traditional knowledge. The way in which it will be translated into practice will however depend on the concrete implementation in national country legislation across the world. Implementing the Nagoya Protocol compares existing ABS regimes in ten European countries, including one non-EU member and one EU candidate country, and critically explores several cross-cutting issues related to the implementation of the Nagoya Protocol in the EU. Gathering some of the most professional and widely acclaimed experts in ABS issues, this book takes a major step towards filling a gap in the vast body of literature on national and regional implementation of global commitments regarding ABS and traditional knowledge.--

Technique, communication et société à la recherche d'un modèle de gouvernance : les technologies de l'information et de la communication et les limites du paradigme de la raison communicationnelle( Book )

1 edition published in 2007 in French and held by 27 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Le présent ouvrage est le résultat d’un effort collectif de recherche sur la question de la gouvernance de la société de l’information. Les systèmes socio-techniques complexes ouvrent aujourd’hui des possibilités inédites dans les divers champs de la technologie, et entraînent de profonds bouleversements dans l’organisation des sociétés humaines. Il semble cependant que la sélection des options de recherche et de développement s’opère sur la base de critères relevant pour l’essentiel de la science, de la technique, et de l’économie. Dès lors, la diffusion des applications techniques de la science et des technologies d’information et de communication, généralement soustraite à la discussion démocratique, provoque une véritable crise dans les rapports " science / société ". Il importe donc de s’interroger sur la capacité des systèmes de pouvoir et de décision à résoudre cette crise selon des exigences démocratiques et éthiques. Cet ouvrage nous invite à partager des réflexions sur : les enjeux et les modalités de la gouvernance démocratique des processus socio-techniques ; la place de l’éthique dans un tel cadre de régulation ; l’existence d’autres formes de rationalité que les seules raisons techniques et économiques dans la conduite de nos sociétés."--Page 4 de la couverture
