Social Ecology of Tea Gardens in India: Perspective of Global Warming LAP Lambert Academic Publishing

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Social ecology is basically a manifestation of social system funtion comprising of structural characteristics and functional disposition. Tea gardens in India are representing unique social-ecologial behaviour and it has been more conspicuous with the advent of global warming and climate change. This unique social ecology has been a subject to withdrawl of biodiversity, erosion of physical natural bases and relentless anthropogenic activities. The book is a rare academic cultivation in the area of ecological networking by statistically designing the spill and grid effect of intra and inter ecological performances.It is unique to observe that with the change in rainfall pattern, as perceived by different tea garden stakeholders,the pattern of livelihood generation and other economic activities pertaining to this social ecology have been affected.The general social science researches are mainly confined to analysing and estimating socio-economic variables and,on contrary,this book retains a well readable research document on combined effect of socio-economic interaction with the bio-physical counterpart of the same ecological setup.Thus the book is a great creation in Social Ecology.

Rapid global changes have resulted in vast changes in education. In small nation-states which do not have natural resources to depend on, the training of a skilled and diverse workforce for economic development is essential for their survival. In addition, there is pressure to keep up with global developments. This impacts educational changes in all educational institutions. Such educational changes have a deep impact on academics.Much pressure is placed on the teaching staff to make adjustments to their curriculum and teaching. Sometimes,they may resort to making superficial changes and they may not be able to adapt fast enough. Furthermore, we cannot assume the planned curriculum change will be translated directly into practice. Thus, there is a need to study teaching staff's perception and adaptations to educational change.

Climate Change: An Integrated Perspective Springer Netherlands

Global climate change - rapid, substantial and human induced - may have radical consequences for life on earth. The problem is a complex one, however, demanding a multi-disciplinary approach. A simple cost-benefit analysis cannot capture the essentials, nor can the issue be reduced to an emissions reduction game, as the Kyoto process tries to do. It is much more sensible to adopt an integrative approach, which reveals that global climate change needs to be considered as a spider in a web, a triggering factor for a range of other, related problems - land use changes, water supply and demand, food supply, energy supply, human health, air pollution, etc. But an approach like this, which takes account of all items of knowledge, known and uncertain, does not produce clear-cut, final and popular answers. It does provide useful insights, however, which will allow comprehensive and effective long-term climate strategies to be put into effect. Climate Change: An Integrated Perspective will appeal to a broad spectrum of readers. It is a useful source for the climate-change professionals, such as policy makers and analysts, natural and social scientists. It is also suitable for educationalists, students and indeed anyone interested in the fascinating world of multidisciplinary research underlying our approach to this global change issue.

Technology and Innovation for Social Change Springer, Berlin

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Tension exists between technologists and social thinkers because of the impact technology and innovation have on social values and norms, which is often viewed as damaging to the cultural fabric of a nation or society. Since the global business environment is the context in which implementation of technology and innovation takes place, it is widely accepted as the major reason for such conflicts. In this backdrop, this edited book integrates independent research from across the globe. It deals with the nature and significance of technology, innovation and social change as well as the relationships between them, and discusses the significance of social entrepreneurship from social innovation and technology perspectives.§Research areas covered are related to the development and deployment of technology, innovation and knowledge in social change, capabilities of institutions, models, role of government and corporate social responsibility and community involvement. Multiple aspects of social change are discussed in the context of India, Mexico, Thailand, Cambodia, Laos, Vietnam, Ethiopia, Nigeria and other African countries. But society does not silently accept technologically enforced changes; sometimes technology is seen as an enemy of inclusive growth and for many, economic development is an anti-thesis of social change. Selected case studies on sector-specific technologies, such as the use of genetically modified seeds in agriculture, which has impacted the market and society, are critically analyzed to develop insights into the adoption of technology and its impact. At the same time it examines policy related issues, without any bias in favor of, or against, a specific technology.

Theory, Justice, and Social Change Springer Netherlands

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Throughout history, social and intellectual crises have given rise to compelling suggestions for reform steeped in various progressive sensibilities. For example, within the discipline of criminology -- particularly during the 1980 s and 1990 s -- a number of unconventional theoretical perspectives emerged that sought to challenge many of the assumptions embedded within its own mainstream discourse, and to propose alternative solutions for meaningful, sustainable change. Conceived of as "critical" in overarching orientation, these efforts to rethink the foundations of criminological verstehen can be traced to several specific theoretical and methodological strands of inquiry (e.g., anarchism, peacemaking, chaos theory, postmodernism). Though distinct in some respects, these emerging models are linked paradigmatically by their shared discontent with conventional criminological thought and by their radicalized posture toward existing and previously unexamined epistemic crises. Collectively, this is an agenda for reform that seeks to establish a more humane and just social order, particularly as citizens and society confront the institutional and communal problems posed by crime, delinquency, and deviance.Theory, Justice, and Social Change: Theoretical Integrations and Critical Applications represents a provocative series of essays that systematically reviews or extends the role of critical social theory in fostering justice and change in several relevant, though problematic, social contexts. Mindful of the need to address both conceptual exegeses and pragmatic concerns, the articles contained in this volume grapple with the ongoing "double crisis" that confronts theory and practice in the construction of knowledge. By appropriating and integrating various insights from several heterodox and critically animated lines of inquiry, each chapter deftly exposes where and how conventional sociological and criminological thought has failed to effectively address such human social issues as homelessness, mental illness, minority rights, juvenile justice, global violence, and criminal punishment. In doing so, Theory, Justice, and Social Change provides new and much needed direction regarding theory development in the social sciences, and indicates why charting such a course of theory/action yields more enlightened prospects for justice and change in society and in our lives.

Neo- Gandhism has led to Participatory Development in India post social movement led by Anna Hazare. GRIN Verlag

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Master's Thesis from the year 2012 in the subject Politics - International Politics - Region: South Asia, grade: Merit, University of East London (School of Law and Social Sciences), course: NGO & International Development Management, language: English, abstract: The last decade has seen India emerging as one of the fastest growing economies in the face of a global economic meltdown. The year of 2010 saw Delhi host the Common Wealth Games, followed by the exposure of shoddy preparations, gross financial mismanagement and reports of rampant corruption in awarding lucrative contracts to dubious firms. The high and mighty became richer. This was followed by various other scams running into billions of worth of dollars of the taxpayers' money. The year of 2011 saw, Anna Hazare, a Gandhian social activist sit on a fast with few people supporting him in New Delhi demanding the formation of an independent ombudsman- the Jan Lokpal to investigate the corruption at high levels. The massive support to the protest from people in every major city, from every walk of life, in the country made the government sit up and take notice. The protest seemed to take the shape of a Gandhian mass movement with people joining the fast, wearing Gandhian white cap and determined to be non-violent. This paper set out to explore if this movement has resulted in any change in the attitudes and behavior of people resulting in participatory development. A questionnaire was drawn with four thematic statements inter-linking this movement and the effect it had on people's own attitudes towards participatory development. Twenty five respondents sent their views via electronic medium on issues of their own understanding of participatory development and the role gender within that context, their own stories and if they had played any role in the movement. The research analysis did not conclude a straight answer and was able to establish that participatory development does not exist in its entirety in India despite it being understood as the only way to holistic development. The reasons appeared to be more diverse and varied and were unable to indicate any changes in inner conscience vis-ŕ-vis personal lives as in Gandhian philosophy; making it imperative that a further and more extensive observational study may be needed to understand why participatory development still remains a theoretical concept at large.

Globalization, Discourse, Media: In a Critical Perspective Wydawnictwa Uniwersytetu Warszawskiego

This volume deals with communicative, social and media-related aspects of discourses under globalization. In one way or another, all the contributions touch upon issues relating to new multilingualism and new multiculturalism, which are being propelled worldwide by politically and economically motivated processes of migration. The pivotal topics covered are: postmodern social identities (esp. national, transnational and consumer identities), linguistic and cultural variation and change under the influence of global English and new technologies, as well as the ideologization of public discourses and that of the media in particular. The chapters are united by their focus on in-depth critical interpretations of public (often political) discourses. While most of the contributions are couched in a Critical Discourse Analysis framework, room has been made for cognate interdisciplinary approaches to social communication. Alongside well grounded empirical studies, this volume features innovative theoretical reflections and proposals of how new approaches and methods for investigating social and linguistic phenomena might be employed to meet the challenges of the 21st century. The bilingual format of this volume (English and German) affords the possibility to elucidate on language- and culture- based variation and on how these respective issues are academically researched and socially mediated.

Local Science Vs Global Science Berghahn Books

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

While science has achieved a remarkable understanding of nature, affording humans an astonishing technological capability, it has led, through Euro-American global domination, to the muting of other cultural views and values, even threatening their continued existence. There is a growing realization that the diversity of knowledge systems demand respect, some refer to them in a conservation idiom as alternative information banks. The scientific perspective is only one. We now have many examples of the soundness of local science and practices, some previously considered "primitive" and in need of change, but this book goes beyond demonstrating the soundness of local science and arguing for the incorporation of others' knowledge in development, to argue that we need to look quizzically at the foundations of science itself and further challenge its hegemony, not only over local communities in Africa, Asia, the Pacific or wherever, but also the global community. The issues are large and the challenges are exciting, as addressed in this book, in a range of ethnographic and institutional contexts. Paul Sillitoe is Professor of Anthropology, Durham University. His research interests focus on natural resources management, appropriate technology, and development. He specialises in social and environmental change, sustainable livelihoods, human ecology and ethno-science. He has long-standing interests in the Pacific, and more recently in South Asia. He seeks to further the incorporation of local knowledge in development, having experience with several international development agencies.

Legal Issues for Implementing the Clean Development Mechanism in China - 2827032154

Legal Issues for Implementing the Clean Development Mechanism in China Springer, Berlin

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Today, climate change is among the most hotly-debated topics worldwide. The Clean Development Mechanism (CDM), one of the three financial mechanisms under the Kyoto Protocol open to developing and developed countries, was devised to assist in mitigation of global warming. Since it was initiated, thousands of CDM projects have been carried out. China, in particular, with its large carbon emission potential and favourable investment environment, has dominated the global carbon market through participating in CDM projects and has become the largest beneficiary.§Despite significant benefits the CDM has brought to China, many barriers and problems are still encountered in the practical implementation of CDM projects. Moreover, as the first Kyoto period is set to expire in 2012, China, as a major emitter and developing country, will play a crucial role in combating global warming in the post-2012 period. Therefore, it is expected to take on more reduction responsibilities and thus will be under considerable pressure to reduce carbon emissions without undermining its economic development. Against this background, it is also of great significance to discuss how the CDM contributes to promoting sustainable development in China and helps to meet the challenges of global warming and emission reductions in the post-2012 period. §The central aim of this book is to discuss what China should do to make full use of the CDM to promote sustainable development and to meet the challenge of climate change from a legal perspective. It should be noted that this study focuses on the legal aspect of implementing the CDM in China in spite of the importance of other aspects that may influence the success of the CDM. First, how the CDM contributes to sustainable development in China is explored on the basis of the current situation of CDM projects. Following this, the existing barriers and problems encountered in the practical implementation of CDM projects are identified, based on a field work study. Finally, how the CDM would contribute to assisting China in dealing with climate change beyond 2012 is analyzed. Based on these analyses, the thesis comes to a conclusion that the CDM has limitations in promoting sustainable development in China and thus should be regarded only as a complementary instrument in combating climate change. Legal strategies for improving the implementation of CDM projects under the legal framework in China are thus put forward and some proposals for China to meet the challenge of climate change in the post-2012 era are made.§With a view to successfully addressing the topic in this book, interdisciplinary research methods covering many subjects like legal research, pragmatic approach, empirical research, statistical analysis and economic perspective, are applied.§Discussing legal aspects of the CDM in China, this book offers new insights to academics and policymakers both in the public and private sector. Those insights are not only relevant for understanding the past, but moreover for guiding the future design and implementation of the CDM. Therefore, this book is intended for legal practitioners and researchers on carbon trading under the Kyoto Protocol as well as policymakers interested in the role of developing countries in climate change law. In addition, it is of interest to stakeholders of CDM projects. Furthermore, it would be most attractive to the postgraduate learning Chinese law, energy law and law of climate change and MBA marketplaces.
