      Rethinking Geopolitics: Climate Security in the Anthropocene (pages 1–9)

      Simon Dalby

      Article first published online: 25 OCT 2013 | DOI: 10.1111/1758-5899.12074

      Climate change has become a matter of security in recent policy discussions. The scale of the transformations we are living through is slowly dawning on policy makers but the implications for both security and policy making in general of our new geological conditions, our living in the new geological epoch of the Anthropocene, have yet to be thought through carefully.

      According to many climate change commentators, we are already a third of the way through the ‘critical decade’ when solutions to global warming must be found.

      Institutional Voids and the Role of Civil Society: the Case of Global Finance (pages 23–35)

      Helmut K. Anheier

      Article first published online: 25 OCT 2013 | DOI: 10.1111/1758-5899.12061

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      ‘Globalizing policy fields can contain institutional voids in which effective regulatory frameworks and the corrective counterbalance of civil society are equally absent.’ In this paper, Helmut Anheier recommends the ‘systematic development of a transnational civil society infrastructure in terms of organizational capacity and expertise for accountability enforcement, policy review, performance oversight, and advocacy.’

      From Global Policy to Local Knowledge: What is the Link between Women's Formal Political Participation and Gender Equality in Conflict-affected Contexts? (pages 36–46)

      Hakan Seckinelgin and Jennifer F. Klot

      Article first published online: 4 NOV 2013 | DOI: 10.1111/1758-5899.12083

      In many post-conflict contexts, quotas for women's formal participation are introduced as part of restructuring political and social landscape. While many women take part in formal politics many more still experience inequalities determined by their gender positions.

      Learning from Child Protection Systems Mapping and Analysis in West Africa: Research and Policy Implications (pages 47–55)

      Alexander Krueger, Guy Thompstone and Vimala Crispin

      Article first published online: 29 JUL 2013 | DOI: 10.1111/1758-5899.12047

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      This article highlights that the main obstacles to the affective functioning of Child Protection Systems in West Africa are ‘the lack of congruence between formal strategies, actual state capabilities and resources, and community values and priorities.’ Guy Thompstone and his colleagues at Child Frontiers, have argued in this article that ‘A balanced child and family welfare system is best achieved through consultation and genuine dialogue between external actors, the state, civil society and communities.’

      Collectively, this volume contributes to the growing body of research on how emerging technology areas interact with each other, what policy issues arise from those interactions, and how institutions might adapt to manage those challenges.

      Given the centrality of innovation to solving humanity's most pressing problems, designing a global trading system that maximizes innovation should be the most important task for nations and multilateral organizations. Unfortunately, it is not.

      The Impact of Innovation in Geotechnology on Energy and the Environment (pages 63–69)

      Carter W. Page

      Article first published online: 24 FEB 2014 | DOI: 10.1111/1758-5899.12101

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      China, the United States, the European Union and Russia account for over half of the world's total primary energy consumption. While a frequent excuse for not addressing climate change is that individual powers cannot have a material impact on the problem, these four powers collectively represent a majority voice in this debate and can have a material impact on future trends.

      Over the long term, finding broad agreement on what constitutes the appropriate use of emerging biological technologies will be one of the great challenges for twenty-first century global governance.

      The Climatic Challenge to Global Justice (pages 93–95)

      Article first published online: 24 FEB 2014 | DOI: 10.1111/1758-5899.12111

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      What sets climate change apart is the fact that we lack not just robust institutions to confront it but also robust theories to understand it. In fact, we do not even know exactly how to conceptualize the issue, and this has implications on how we go about it when making policy.

      In a nutshell, historical emissions resulted from the action of people who were not us and who didn't know about the impact of their emissions at that time. This makes it complicated to assign responsibility to their descendants, even if we adopt a free-riding based approach.

      I am not suggesting that the fate of the current least well-offs should be sacrificed for the sake of the well-being of future persons. I am rather pointing out that no simple principle like leximin egalitarianism—where only one relevant factor, such as worse-offedness, is taken into account—can be a plausible standard of intergenerational justice.

      New Institutional Economics (NIE) provides a compelling explanation for the failure of donors to achieve demonstrable development results in the past half century. The paper studies the economic and social history of developed countries and looks at specific examples in developing countries to show a way forward.

      In an era where citizens' demands for an expansion and deepening of inclusionary economic and political institutions punctuate the globe; it remains curious that policy makers have not robustly connected the two areas explicitly.

      Almost all nations have made efforts to deal with disasters. In doing so, they have tried to evaluate their own disaster management. Three nations, in particular, have shown very unique characteristics in their disaster management. These are the United States, Indonesia, and South Korea (hereinafter Korea) in the Asia-Pacific zone. It is time to ask, as a research question, how the evaluation technique of a holistic frame regarding each disaster management issue is applied in these three nations.
