  1. International Investment Law and Development

    International Investment Law and Development

    Edited by Stephan Schill, Christian J. Tams, Rainer Hofmann
    Foreign investment is meant to contribute to the host country’s development, and yet international investment law has often been seen as an obstacle to (sustainable) development. So are investment and development friends or foes? Combining critical reflection and detailed analysis, this timely volume explores the relationship between the two concepts and explores options of harnessing investment for development. Learn More

  4. Research Handbook on Climate Governance

    Research Handbook on Climate Governance

    Edited by Karin Bäckstrand, Eva Lövbrand
    The 2009 United Nations climate conference in Copenhagen is often represented as a watershed in global climate politics, when the diplomatic efforts to negotiate a successor agreement to the Kyoto Protocol failed and was replaced by a fragmented and decentralized climate governance order. In the post-Copenhagen landscape the top-down universal approach to climate governance has gradually given way for a more complex, hybrid and dispersed political landscape involving multiple actors, arenas and sites. The Research Handbook on Climate Governance takes stock of these developments in time for the upcoming UN climate conference in Paris in December 2015. The Handbook contains contributions from more than 50 internationally leading scholars and explores the latest trends and theoretical developments of the climate governance scholarship. Learn More

  5. The Chinese Strategic Mind

    The Chinese Strategic Mind

    Hong Liu
    This book addresses the fundamental issue: does the Chinese strategic mind have its own idiosyncrasies which differ considerably from those of the West? It expounds and unravels the particular characteristics of the Chinese strategic mind: what they are, how they are evolved and what strategic implications they have. This book adopts a holistic approach to an analysis of Chinese strategic thinking, drawing upon the fields of literature (including the sources of both the Chinese and English languages), military studies, political science, history, sociology, psychology, philosophy, linguistics and business strategy. It combines a detailed consideration of these disciplines with a series of case studies to elucidate the formation, nature and crucial managerial implications of the idiosyncratic Chinese strategic mind.

  8. Human Rights and Corporate Wrongs

    Human Rights and Corporate Wrongs

    Simon Baughen
    The effects of globalization, together with the increase in foreign investment and resource development within the developing world, have created a context for human rights abuses by states in which corporations from the developed world are complicit. This has led to what John Ruggie has identified as ‘governance gaps’. This book will consider how these gaps may be closed, examining: the status of corporations under international law; the civil liability of corporations for their participation in international crimes; and self-regulation through voluntary codes of conduct, such as the 2011 UN Guiding Principles.

  14. Handbook of Chinese Migration

    Handbook of Chinese Migration

    Edited by Iredale R. Robyn, Guo Fei
    The recent unprecedented scale of Chinese migration has had far-reaching consequences. Within China, many villages have been drained of their young and most able workers, cities have been swamped by the ‘floating population’, and many rural migrants have been unable to integrate into urban society. Internationally, the Chinese have become increasingly more mobile. This Handbook provides a unique collection of new and original research on internal and international Chinese migration and its effects on the sense of belonging of migrants. Learn More

  15. Entrepreneurship in Cities

    Entrepreneurship in Cities

    Edited by Colin Mason, Darja Reuschke, Stephen Syrett, Maarten Van Ham
    Entrepreneurship in Cities focuses on the neglected role of the home and the residential neighbourhood context for entrepreneurship and businesses within cities. The overall objective of the book is to develop a new interdisciplinary perspective that links entrepreneurship research with neighbourhood and urban studies. A key contribution is to show that entrepreneurship in cities is more than agglomeration economies and high tech clusters. This is the first book to connect entrepreneurship with neighbourhoods and home, recognising that business activity in the city is not confined to central business districts, high streets and industrial estates but is also found in residential neighbourhoods. It highlights the importance of home-based businesses for the economy of cities. These often overlooked types of businesses and workers significantly contribute to the “buzz” that makes cities favourable places to live and work. Learn More

  16. The Political Economy of Sustainable Development

    The Political Economy of Sustainable Development

    Timothy Cadman, Lauren Eastwood, Federico Lopez-Casero Michaelis, Tek N. Maraseni, Jamie Pittock, Tapan Sarker
    Since the Rio ‘Earth’ Summit of 1992, sustainable development has become the major policy response to tackling global environmental degradation, from climate change, to loss of biodiversity, and deforestation. Market instruments such as emissions trading, payments for ecosystem services, and timber certification have become the main mechanisms for financing the sustainable management of the earth’s natural resources. Yet how effective are they – and do they help the planet, and developing countries, or merely uphold the economic status quo? This book investigates these questions. Learn More
