Abstract

This edited volume explains the importance of regional public goods (RPGs) for sustainable development and shows why they are particularly important in the context of 21st-century international relations. By presenting a new and original data set and by presenting original essays by renowned scholars, this book lays the foundation for what will become an increasingly important focus for both economic development and international relations as well as for their intersection. This book contains four parts. The first introduces the core issues and concepts that are explored throughout the book as well as a new and original data set on regional public goods (RPGs). The second part further develops specific concepts important for understanding 21st-century RPGs: regional leadership, alliances, networks, and outcomes. The third part examines how cooperation takes place worldwide for a range of important RPGs. The fourth part discusses how public goods are produced in specific regions, stressing that each region has a distinct context and that these contexts overlap in a decentered “multiplex” manner.

Abstract

A Diateichisma is part of a city´s fortification system. Unlike a city wall it was built within the urban area dividing a city in two parts. This study focuses on two aspects. On the one hand, the phenomenon of diateichismata is considered as part of fortification architecture, on the other hand the influence of diateichism on the organisation of the urban space is pointed out. Furthermore, the reasons, why diateichismata were build are considered as a focal point of the study. The settlement are displayed in a catalogue, technical data is in charts. Written sources mentioning diatechisma are put together including relevant passages of the text. In scientific research diateichismata have been regarded as mere functional buildings, however, they have been studied systematically. In this study, the significance of diateichismata is analysed beyond the aspects of fortification; in particular, the impact of diateichismata on the development and utilisation of urban space is a spezial interest. A comparative analysis of settlements with diateichisma has needs of comparable criteria. The most applicable term, after which settlements with diateichisma can be discerned and put in order, is the chronological relation of diateichisma and city wall, because here chronology is the only variable giving valuable information on settlement development. Hence three variations of settlements with diateichisma can be discerned: 1. Settlements with diateichisma built together with the enceinte. 2. Settlements with secondarily but diateichisma. 3. Settlements with diateichisma which originate after expansion of walled urban space. Most of the studied settlements have diateichismata which were built after the enceinte (23 examples) or which origins from expansion of walled city space (19 settlements). Contemporaneous diateichismate are rare (14 settlements), only in a few cities the relation between diateichisma and city wall remains unclear. The earliest diateichismata be dated in late 7th cent. B.C., the latest was build in the middle of the 2nd cent. B.C. Within this chronological frame the highest concentration of diateichismata can be traced in classical and hellenistic times. The distriution of cities is spead from the Iberian Peninsula to Greek parts of modern Afghanistan (Graeco-bactria). Only any regions do show concentrations of settlements with diateichisma. In the Western Mediterranean there are more cities with secondarily built diateichisma, in the area of north-western Greek in a lot of cities the walled urban space was enlarged establishind diateichismata between the original city area and the newly acquired space. Generally, diateichismata serve as obstacles to enemies which conquered the enceinte already or as barrier wall for hostile parties fighting within the boundaries of the city wall. Despite of the clear military function only cities of military character have a diateichisma; there it always serves as a barrier wall protecting free space

Abstract

Bordée par les chaines de montagnes qui dominent la Méditerranée, traversée du sud au nord et d'est en ouest par les méandres de l'Oronte, la Syrie centrale offre au géographe un paysage relativement homogène. Les travaux hydrauliques, barrages, canaux d'irrigation, entrepris au cours de ce siècle, relayant les traditionnelles norias, ont donne son essor a l'agriculture de cette région, favorisant du même coup la démographie, et en ont fait une des plus riches régions agricoles de Syrie et du...

Abstract

Der „Sozialraum“ hat Konjunktur. In einer Vielzahl von Politik- und Professionsfeldern wird auf „soziale Räume“ oder „lokale Gemeinschaften“ rekurriert. Die „Aktivierung“ von „endogenen Potenzialen“, „sozialem Kapital“, „Eigenverantwortung“, „Selbststeuerung“ oder „Selbsthilfe“ im nahräumigen Kontext ist mit der Verheißung verbunden, grundlegende Integrations-, Verteilungs- und Steuerungsprobleme fortgeschritten liberaler Gesellschaften bearbeiten zu können. Die vorliegende Studie untersucht die ambivalente Rolle von Sozialraumpolitiken im gegenwärtigen gesellschaftlichen Transformationsgeschehen und diskutiert Möglichkeiten, wie raumaffine Professionen und Bewegungen fragwürdigen politisch- programmatischen Anrufungen widerstehen können.

Abstract

Arctic Geopolitics, Media and Power provides a fresh way of looking at the potential and limitations of regional international governance in the Arctic region. Far-reaching impacts of climate change, its wealth of resources and potential for new commercial activities have placed the Arctic region into the political limelight. In an era of rapid environmental change, the Arctic provides a complex and challenging case of geopolitical interplay. Based on analyses of how actors from within and outside the Arctic region assert their interests and how such discourses travel in the media, this book scrutinizes the social and material contexts within which new imaginaries, spatial constructs and scalar preferences emerge. It places ground-breaking attention to shifting media landscapes as a critical component of the social, environmental and technological change. It also reflects on the fundamental dilemmas inherent in democratic decision making at a time when an urgent need for addressing climate change is challenged by conflicting interests and growing geopolitical tensions. This book will be of great interest to geography academics, media and communication studies and students focusing on policy, climate change and geopolitics, as well as policy-makers and NGOs working within the environmental sector or with the Arctic region.

Abstract

En ce début de XXIe siècle, comment apprécier la place du Laos en Asie du Sud-Est ? L'État tampon de la guerre froide saura-t-il exploiter sa position centrale dans la péninsule Indochinoise, à la porte de l'immense nation chinoise, pour s'imposer comme un pays charnière ? Le programme de développement du Grand Mékong l'aidera-t-il à se désenclaver ? Son adhésion à l'Asean lui permettra-t-elle d'affirmer son identité, de s'affranchir des relations parfois difficiles qu'il entretient toujours avec le Viêt Nam ou la Thaïlande ? Pourra-t-il à la fois rattraper son retard économique et technologique vis-à-vis de ses voisins et gérer sa différence politique ? Enfin, et ce n'est pas le moindre défi, comment la société laotienne s'adaptera-t-elle à tous ces bouleversements ? Autant de questions qui se posent à ce pays en pleine mutation. À travers cet ouvrage, Vatthana Pholsena et Ruth Banomyong nous emmènent à la découverte du Laos d'aujourd'hui et font émerger les enjeux et mécanismes de son intégration régionale.

Abstract

"This book presents essays exploring the ways in which popular culture reflects and engenders ongoing changes in Japan–Korea relations. Through a broad temporal coverage from the colonial period to the contemporary, the book’s chapters analyse the often contradictory roles that popular culture has played in either promoting or impeding nationalisms, regional conflict and reconciliations between Japan and Korea. Its contributors link several key areas of interest in East Asian Studies, including conflicts over historical memories and cultural production, grassroot challenges to state ideology, and the consequences of digital technology in Japan and South Korea. Taking recent discourse on Japan and South Korea as popular cultural superpowers further, this book expands its focus from mainstream entertainment media to the lived experience of daily life, in which sentiments and perceptions of the ‘popular’ are formed. It will be useful to students and scholars of Japanese and Korean studies, as well as film studies, media studies and cultural studies more widely."

Abstract

​This book is an update of the first BACC assessment, published in 2008. It offers new and updated scientific findings in regional climate research for the Baltic Sea basin. These include climate changes since the last glaciation (approx. 12,000 years ago), changes in the recent past (the last 200 years), climate projections up until 2100 using state-of-the-art regional climate models and an assessment of climate-change impacts on terrestrial, freshwater and marine ecosystems. There are dedicated new chapters on sea-level rise, coastal erosion and impacts on urban areas. A new set of chapters deals with possible causes of regional climate change along with the global effects of increased greenhouse gas concentrations, namely atmospheric aerosols and land-cover change.The evidence collected and presented in this book shows that the regional climate has already started to change and this is expected to continue. Projections of potential future climates show that the region will probably become considerably warmer and wetter in some parts, but dryer in others. Terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems have already shown adjustments to increased temperatures and are expected to undergo further changes in the near future.The BACC II Author Team consists of 141 scientists from 12 countries, covering various disciplines related to climate research and related impacts. BACC II is a project of the Baltic Earth research network and contributes to the World Climate Research Programme.
