    Edited by Peter J. Buckley, Hinrich Voss

  3. The Economics of Climate Resilience and Adaptation

    The Economics of Climate Resilience and Adaptation

    Edited by Sam Fankhauser
    Managing climate change requires action on both its causes (reducing emissions) and its consequences (adapting to impacts that can no longer be avoided). Human societies can thrive in many climatic conditions. However, such adaptation is not necessarily smooth, and it cannot be taken for granted. This book synthesises the contribution of economics to the study and practice of climate resilience and adaptation. Including an original introduction by the editor, it brings together in one volume some of the most influential articles by economists on climate change adaptation since the topic became a subject of academic interest.

  4. Market Failure

    Market Failure

    Edited by Stephen Martin
    The powerful theorems of welfare economics operate under a range of assumptions. Two of the most significant are the existence of competitive markets for all goods and services - including futures markets - and the unbounded rationality of all economic agents who act independently to maximize payoffs. In the contributions collected in this three-volume set, economists come to grips with the consequences of markets falling short of assumptions, as well as the response of institutions to observed market characteristics. Together with an original introduction by the editor, this comprehensive collection will be of interest to economists and policymakers who wish to understand the strengths and limitations of the market mechanism of resource allocation.

  5. Understanding Jus Cogens in International Law and International Legal Discourse

    Understanding Jus Cogens in International Law and International Legal Discourse

    Ulf Linderfalk
    Whilst the concept of jus cogens has grown increasingly more important in public international law, lawyers remain hugely divided both over what precisely confers a jus cogens status on a norm, and what this conferral implies in terms of legal consequences. In this ground-breaking book, Ulf Linderfalk clearly and succinctly explores the reasons for this divide in order to facilitate more rational and productive future discourse. Learn More

  14. Institutions and Economic Development

    Institutions and Economic Development

    Edited by Jakob de Haan
    This collection carefully selects some of the most influential papers focusing on the relationship between economic and political institutions and economic development. Economic institutions shape economic incentives, such the incentives to become educated, to save and invest, to innovate and to adopt new technologies. Although economic institutions are critical for determining whether a country is poor or prosperous, it is politics and political institutions that determine which economic institutions are present in a country. This collection explores these critical relationships and the causes of economic growth, whilst bringing forth the legal, colonial and financial factors, which contribute, to economic discrepancies across countries. Prefaced by an authoritative introduction by the editor, this collection promises to be a valuable tool for economic researchers and scholars interested in this important subject. Learn More

  19. Research Handbook on Global Climate Constitutionalism

    Research Handbook on Global Climate Constitutionalism

    Edited by Jordi Jaria-Manzano, Susana Borrás
    Climate change is causing traditional political and legal concepts to be revisited. The emergence of a global polity through physical, economic and social interaction demands global responses which should be founded upon new principles and which cannot simply be modelled on traditional constitutionalism centred on the nation-state. This Research Handbook explores how to build this climate constitutionalism at a global level, starting from the narrative of Anthropocene and its implications for law. It provides a critical approach to global environmental constitutionalism, analysing the problems of sustainability and global equity which are entwined with the causes and consequences of climate change. The Handbook explores how to develop constitutional discourses and strategies to address these issues, and thereby tackle the negative effects of climate change whilst also advancing a more sustainable, equitable and responsible global society.
