  5. Living with Environmental Change

    Waterworlds
    Edited by Kirsten Hastrup and Cecilie Rubow

    Climate change is a lived experience of changes in the environment, oftentimes destroying conventional forms of subsistence and production, creating new patterns of movement and connection, and transforming people’s imagined future. This book explores how people across the world think about environmental change and how they act upon the perception of past, present and future opportunities... Read more...

  6. Celebrity Advocacy and International Development

    By Dan Brockington

    Celebrity advocacy is a curious phenomenon. It occupies a significant proportion of the public domain, but does so without engaging particularly well with much of the public. Yet this may not matter very much. Many people at the core of advocacy, and in political and business elites, simply do not notice any lack of engagement. In these circles celebrity advocacy can be remarkably effective... Read more...

    Edited by Susan F. Martin, Sanjula Weerasinghe and Abbie Taylor

    Edited by Christopher Hobson, Paul Bacon and Robin Cameron

    "Human security" is an approach that rejects the traditional prioritization of state security, and instead identifies the individual as the primary referent of security. It offers a way of broadening our perspective, and recognizing that the most pressing threats to individuals do not come from interstate war, but from the emergencies that affect people every day, such as famine, disease, displacement, civil conflict and environmental degradation...

  10. Economic Development and Political Action in the Arab World

    By M.A. Mohamed Salih

    Analysis of North African revolt against authoritarianism, known as the ‘Arab Spring’, embraced reductionist explanations such as the social media, youth unemployment and citizens’ agitations to regain dignity in societies humiliated by oppressive regimes. This book illustrates that reductionist approaches can only elucidate some symptoms of a social problem while leaving unexplained the economic and political structures which contributed to it...
