An Architecture for International Cooperation on Climate Change
The Fifth Annual Sir Leslie Melville Lecture was presented by Professor Warwick J McKibbin.  Sir Leslie Melville’s legacy includes the design and establishment of new institutions for dealing with global macroeconomic interdependence. Today the world is grappling with a far more complex set of problems related to environmental interdependence on a global scale. In this lecture, Professor Warwick McKibbin argues that major countries must respond to the issue of climate change, tak

The Next 100 Years - A Forecast for the 21st Century
In his book The Next 100 Years, George Friedman offers a lucid, highly readable forecast of the changes we can expect around the world during the twenty-first century. He explains where and why future wars will erupt (and how they will be fought), which nations will gain and lose economic and political power, and how new technologies and cultural trends will alter the way we live in the new century. Drawing on history and geopolitical patterns dating back hundreds of years, Friedman shows that w

Korea’s Division System and Its Regional Implications
The partition of the Korean peninsula has since the end of the Korean War solidified into a ‘division system' encompassing two otherwise contrastive societies. This notion enables an important shift from a state- or ideology-oriented approach to a people-oriented one, focusing on the oppression of the preponderant majority of population on both sides. It also implies a shift to a global, rather than a nationalistic perspective since the division system is conceived as a sub-unit of the wor

Charting the Course Towards a Low Carbon Economy
The presentation focuses on three key questions on climate change: what set of policies are desirable? What are the impacts of policy action, and is global action achievable? The first question requires the development of a robust national policy framework and to ensure a set of policies are in place that deliver abatement and adjustment at least cost to the economy. The second question requires an understanding of the causes, nature, and the scale of the economic impacts to achieve the transiti

Coping with Climate Change: Is Development in India and the World Sustainable?

Summary of Section 6

  1. Sequence-specific protein–DNA interactions are achieved through the formation of non-covalent bonds between amino acid side-chains in the protein and bases in the major groove of the DNA.

  2. Non-sequence-specific protein–DNA interactions are achieved primarily through electrostatic interactions between positively charged amino acid side-chains and the negatively charged DNA backbone.

Clear Thinking about National Security: Why is it so Hard?
We often behave as if National Security is too important to think clearly about.  Some risks are ignored, while others are exaggerated.  Policies are adopted to meet threats without any clear idea of what exactly the threat is, how serious it might be, and how it could most cost-effectively be addressed.  Major decisions are made on the most slender of bases: invading Iraq, rebuilding Afghanistan, toughening terrorism laws, buying battleships, have all been undertaken without due

How does the global network infrastructure work and what are the design principles on which it is based? In what ways are these design principles compromised in practice?

6.1 Legitimating the powerful

The labelling perspective associated with Berger and Luckmann focuses on the processes by which some behaviours and types of people become marked out for social disapproval – targeted by the wider society as different and requiring some form of social response. Its virtue is that it challenges conventional assumptions that social problems exist ‘out there’ as obvious and commonly understood facts. Berger and Luckmann's perspective stresses the importance of language in shaping how we de

1.3.11 The significance of the near-death experience

The sociologist Allan Kellehear (1995) observes that most studies have had a medical focus, investigating whether near-death experiences could be the result of a lack of oxygen to the brain or another medical or psychological cause. Kellehear suggests that the search for psycho-medical explanations has focused on psycho-neurological and defensive mechanisms emphasising altered status of consciousness or physical functioning and not taken into account the meaning of these experiences.
