ÔThis book makes an important contribution to the legal literature not only for the ASEAN region but also for the world at large. Both editors, Robert Beckman and J. Ashley Roach, are highly knowledgeable and experienced in the international law pertaining to piracy and international crimes. The chapters they write combined with perspectives by authors from Greece, Sweden, Singapore, Philippines and elsewhere provide a broad but detailed review of the current law and policy as well as remaining challenges.Õ Ð Myron H. Nordquist, University of Virginia School of Law, US ÔThis book is an outstanding analysis of piracy and maritime crimes in the ASEAN region edited by two world-class law of the sea experts. It is must reading for anyone seriously interested in ending the scourge of piracy.Õ Ð John Norton Moore, University of Virginia and former United States Law of the Sea Ambassador ÔI can confidently say that this is the best book on the legal dimension of the problem of piracy in general, and of piracy in Southeast Asia and off the coast of Somalia in particular, and what we can do about it. Robert Beckman and Ashley Roach are two of the finest minds working in international law today. They have brought their knowledge and sharp analytical skills to edit a book of great relevance to the world's shipping industry, IMO, ASEAN and international lawyers and law enforcement agencies.Õ Ð Tommy Koh, United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea Southeast Asian waters are critical for international trade and the global economy. Combating maritime crimes has always been a priority as well as a challenge for ASEAN member states. While much emphasis has been placed on enhancing operational cooperation against maritime crimes, the need for an effective legal framework to combat such maritime crimes has not been sufficiently examined. This book demonstrates that ASEAN member states can establish a legal framework to combat maritime crimes by ratifying and effectively implementing relevant global and regional conventions. It also explores the issues that ASEAN member states, and ASEAN as an organization, face in establishing such a framework and suggests suitable steps that can be taken to address such issues. This informative and detailed study will inform research and policy, and will appeal to government, treaty and policy officials, academics, researchers and students, as well as international and regional organizations concerned with piracy and other related maritime crimes, ocean affairs and the law of the sea.

Food security is one of the greatest challenges of our time. The food price crisis of 2008 exposed the vulnerabilities of the global food system. Governments across Asia acerbated the crisis by imposing export restrictions based on a policy of self-sufficiency. This book assesses whether self-sufficiency is an adequate response to the food security challenges we face. Pricing volatility drives isolationism at a time when climate change and increasingly uncertain weather patterns make it difficult for any single nation to guarantee adequate food production for itself. Through a collection of commissioned studies which draw upon the experience of leading experts and scholars in trade, investment, law, economics, and food policy, this book analyses the impact of this trend on the most essential crop in the Asian region - rice. It suggests that food security policy should be reconceptualised: from the national to the regional and even the global level. It also provides its own proposals as to how this new paradigm of collective food security should be understood and developed. The book calls for a new conversation in the region, acknowledging that the challenges we face are global and the solutions must be found in collective action. This state-of-the-art study will appeal to lawyers, economists and political scientists, as well as food security specialists by providing expert analyses and enlightening solutions for the future.

Politische Emotionen

Warum Liebe für Gerechtigkeit wichtig ist

Wie viel Gefühl verträgt eine Gesellschaft, die nach Gerechtigkeit strebt? Nicht viel, könnte man meinen und auf die Gefahren politischer Instrumentalisierung von Ängsten und Ressentiments verweisen. Emotionen, so eine verbreitete Ansicht, setzen das Denken außer Kraft und sollten deshalb keine Rolle spielen. Martha C. Nussbaum hingegen behauptet: um der Gerechtigkeit politisch zur Geltung zu verhelfen, bedarf es nicht nur eines klaren Verstandes, sondern auch einer positiv-emotionalen Bindung der Bürgerinnen und Bürger an die gemeinsame Sache. Manche sprechen von Hingabe, Nussbaum nennt es Liebe. Sie zeigt, welche Ausdrucksformen diese und verwandte politische Emotionen annehmen können und wie sie sich kultivieren lassen.

Kaum mehr, als dass der Koran ihre heilige Schrift ist, Gläubige fünf Mal am Tag zu Allah beten und sie zum Ramadan fasten. Aber wer kann schon den Unterschied zwischen Schiiten und Sunniten erklären und wer weiß, was es mit den mystischen Sufi auf sich hat? Malcolm Clark erzählt vom Leben des Propheten Mohammed, berichtet über die Ausbreitung seiner Lehre und deren Entwicklung über die Jahrhunderte und erklärt die Bedeutung des Koran. Er beschreibt das Leben der Muslime und zeigt auf, welche Beiträge sie in den Naturwissenschaften, der Kunst und der Architektur geleistet haben.Er hilft so, Vorurteile zu vermeiden und muslimische Mitbürger besser zu verstehen.

Es ist das Enthüllungsbuch, das die Präsidentschaft von Donald Trump erschüttert: Michael Wolffs «Feuer und Zorn» ist ein eindrucksvolles Sittengemälde der amerikanischen Politik unter Trump. Im Mittelpunkt ein Präsident, den seine Mitarbeiter wie ein kleines Kind behandeln, und der umgeben ist von Inkompetenz, Intrigen und Verrat. Der Bestseller-Autor Wolff beschreibt das Chaos, das in den ersten Monaten im Weißen Haus geherrscht hat, er enthüllt, wie nah die Russland-Verbindung an Trump herangerückt ist und wie es zum Rauswurf des FBI-Chefs Comey kam. Und er liefert erstaunliche Details über das Privatleben dieses Präsidenten. Über zweihundert Interviews hat Wolff mit den engsten Mitarbeitern des US-Präsidenten geführt, darunter auch der ehemalige Chef-Berater Stephen Bannon: Noch nie ist es einem Journalisten gelungen, das Geschehen im Weißen Haus so genau nachzuzeichnen. Herausgekommen ist das einzigartige Porträt eines Präsidenten, der selbst nie damit gerechnet hat, die Wahl zu gewinnen. Michael Wolffs Bericht aus dem Weißen Haus unter Trump ist in den USA ein Bestseller: ein aktuelles politisches Buch, das das sich wie ein Königsdrama von Shakespeare liest.
