  2. Handbook of Empirical Research on Islam and Economic Life

    Handbook of Empirical Research on Islam and Economic Life

    Edited by M. Kabir Hassan
    In Islamic jurisprudence, a comprehensive ethic has been formulated governing how business and commerce should be run, how accountability to God and the community is to be achieved, and how banking and finance is to be arranged. This Handbook examines how well these values are translated into actual performance. It explores whether those holding true to the system are hindered and put at a disadvantage or whether the Islamic institutions have been able to demonstrate that faith-based activities can be rewarding, both economically and spiritually.

  3. Research Handbook on Fundamental Concepts of Environmental Law

    Research Handbook on Fundamental Concepts of Environmental Law

    Edited by Douglas Fisher
    The quality and the strength of an environmental legal system is a reflection of the conceptual foundations upon which it is constructed. These are matters of value, policy, substance, process, implementation, compliance and design. The Research Handbook on Fundamental Concepts of Environmental Law explores a number of these key aspects through the lens of their underlying dimensions: for example, the form, structure and language of international, regional and national instruments; the function of norms, objectives and standards; the relevance of economic analysis and of integrated policy formulation. More particularly the topical chapters include an analysis of human rights, constitutional rights, property rights, sustainable development, environmental impact assessment and precaution. This is the juridical context in which the capacity of the judicial system at international, regional and national levels, to ensure implementation and compliance is assessed. Learn More

    Achieving Proof of Concept in Drug Discovery and Development

    Helen Yu

This book examines a novel drug discovery and development model whereby the respective expertise of academia and industry are brought together to take promising discoveries through to proof of concept as a way to de-risk the drug discovery and development process.

  7. The Concept of Climate Migration

    The Concept of Climate Migration

    Benoît Mayer
    This timely book offers a unique interdisciplinary inquiry into the prospects of different political narratives on climate migration. It identifies the essential angles on climate migration - the humanitarian narrative, the migration narrative and the climate change narrative - and assesses their prospects. The author contends that although such arguments will influence global governance, they will not necessarily achieve what advocates hope for. He discusses how the weaknesses of the concept of “climate migration” are likely to be utilized in favour of repressive policies against migration or for the defence of industrial nations against perceived threats from the Third World.

  11. Comparative Contract Law

    Comparative Contract Law

    Edited by Pier Giuseppe Monateri
    This comprehensive Handbook offers a thoughtful survey of contract theories, issues and cases in order to reassess the field's present vision of contract law. It engages a critical search for the fault lines which cross traditions of thought and globalized landscapes. Comparative Contract Law is built around four main groups of insights, including: the genealogies of contractual theoretical thinking; the contentious relationship between private governance and normative regulations; the competing styles used to stage contract law; and the concurring opinions expressed within the domain of other disciplines, such as literature and political theory. The chapters in the book tease out the tensions between a global context and local frameworks as well as the movable thresholds between canonical expressions and heterodox constructions. Learn More

  14. Entrepreneurship, Universities & Resources

    Entrepreneurship, Universities & Resources

    Edited by Ulla Hytti, Robert Blackburn, Denise Fletcher, Friederike Welter
    The role of resources is pivotal in entrepreneurship for the success of new and small ventures, though most face resource constraints. The book offers multiple perspectives on analysing and understanding the importance of resources in entrepreneurship development. Approaching the subject with both a practice-theory and research-based approach, the contributors analyse topics such as processes and structures in social entrepreneuring; entrepreneurship and equity in crowdfunding; and forming alliances with large firms to overcome resource constraints. The contributors provide evidence, for example, on how business angels can contribute more than finance to small ventures and how the flexibility of resources is important in internationalisation.
