"Beyond Lisbon: A European Strategy for Globalisation" is the product of six months' work and extensive Europewide consultations within the framework of a mission entrusted to Laurent Cohen-Tanugi by the French government ahead of France's presidency of the European Union.It provides the first assessment of the Lisbon strategy - generally presented as "the European response to globalisation" - established at the initiative of a Member State since its 2005 relaunch, as well as an analysis of the new challenges and opportunities facing the EU in the years to come.Against that background, the Cohen-Tanugi report demonstrates that in spite of its merits, the Lisbon strategy no longer represents a sufficient European response to globalisation not only because of its intrinsic shortcomings, but also because it constitutes solely an internal reform agenda designed to adapt the European economies and societies to globalisation without attempting to influence it. The report advocates a more ambitious strategy beyond 2010 that includes, along with a more effective innovation-based competitiveness agenda ("Lisbon Plus"), an external dimension based on common policies to help Europe shape globalisation and stay in the race in the 21 st century's global economy.Following the mission's interim recommendation, the European Council of March 2008 has officially launched the reflection on a post-Lisbon globalisation strategy.As a pioneer, substantive contribution to this exercise, the Cohen-Tanugi report has been met with significant interest throughout the EU since its delivery to the French government, and is likely to influence future EU policy in this critical area.

Effectiveness of Community-based Forest Managem...

The effectiveness of community based forest management (CBFM) projects in Zambia is affected mostly by the uncertainty surrounding the policy, legislation and institutional arrangements regarding the community participation in forest management. Although, the government of the republic of Zambia responded to Agenda 21, raised at the 1992 Rio Summit on Environment and Development in Brazil to decentralize the management of forests through joint forest management project, very little has been achieved. In Zambia, Joint forest management (JFM) was seen as the best alternative tool for promoting improved rural livelihoods, especially for resource poor rural communities who have a traditional dependency upon forests. This study was therefore undertaken to evaluate the contribution of pilot joint forest management projects in the livelihoods of the participating local communities and factors critical to the success of project in northern Zambia. The data was collected in communities adjacent to Lukangaba forest reserve No. 147 and Forestry department in Mansa. Data was analysed using SPSS and Microsoft Excel 2007 by generating graphs and descriptive statistics.

Gendered Choices
139,09 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This important book breaks new ground in addressing issues of gendered learning in different contexts across the (adult) life span at the start of the 21 st century. Adult learning sits within a shifting landscape of educational policy, profoundly influenced by the skills agenda, by complex funding policies, new qualifications and the widening/narrowing participation debate. The book is unique in highlighting the centrality of gendered choices to these developments which shape participation in and experiences of lifelong learning.Gendered Choices critically examines the continued expansion of a skills-based approach in areas of lifelong learning, including career decisions, professional identities and informal networks. It explores key intersections of adult learning from a gender perspective: notably participation, workplace learning and informal pathways.Drawing on research from a range of contexts, Gendered Choices demonstrates that for women the public/private spaces of work and home are often conflated, although the gendering of 'choice' has largely been ignored by policy makers.The themes of the book bring together some of these critical issues, explored through the multiple and fractured identities which constitute gendered lives. The book addresses these in an international context, with contributions from Canada, Spain and Iran that provide a wider international perspective on shared issues.

Teaching About Hegemony
105,93 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Political progressives in Canada and the United States are deeply concerned by the manner in which their countries treat their poor. They are dismayed at the dismantling of the social welfare state, the weakening of public education systems and the grotesque and ever-growing inequality of wealth. To remedy this problem, citizens need to be more aware of how political ideology influences attitudes and actions, and they need to better comprehend the effects of hegemonic discourses in the corporate media and school curriculum. This book informs educators how to develop context-specific pedagogy that will help achieve a more enlightened citizenry and, as a result, a stronger democracy.Teaching about Hegemony: Race, Class and Democracy in the 21 st Century promotes a progressive agenda for teaching that is rooted in critical pedagogy, it explains why ideological critique is necessary in raising political consciousness, it deconstructs white, middle-class hegemony in the formal school curriculum, and it examines corporate media and school curriculum as hegemonic devices. It also covers recent theory and research about race, class and democracy and how best to teach about these topics. Combining theory and sociological research with pedagogical approaches and classroom narratives, this book is fundamental for progressive educators interested in developing a politically conscious, progressive and active citizenry hungry for a stronger civil society.
