Global justice

Author: Jean-Christophe Merle
ISBN: PSU:000061615397
Release Date: 2005
Genre: Anti-globalization movement

Der wirtschaftliche und soziale Globalisierungsprozeß der letzten Jahre steht im Mittelpunkt der aktuellen Debatten. Je nach Bewertung plädiert man für eine Globalisierung der politischen Institutionen oder man warnt vor den Folgen für Solidarität und Demokratie. Die schwerwiegendsten Bedenken betreffen aber nicht erst Modelle einer globalen Weltordnung, sondern sie beginnen schon auf dem Weg zu einer solchen: Kein Globalisierungsprozeß der politischen Institutionen - keine Harmonisierung und kein Zusammenschluß zwischen Staaten - könnte je stattfinden, welcher den Forderungen der demokratischen Rechtsstaatlichkeit gerecht wäre. Eine internationale und interdisziplinäre Gruppe von Autoren befaßt sich mit drei wichtigen Dimensionen einer Ethik der Harmonisierung und des Zusammenschlusses zwischen Staaten: 1. der Ethik der internationalen Verhandlungen und Abkommen, 2. der Möglichkeit einer Globalisierung der Öffentlichkeit und 3. der Anwendung des Prinzips von Föderalismus und Subsidiarität auf solche Staatengebilde. - Mit deutsch- und englischsprachigen Beiträgen von L. Baccelli, P. Burgess, P. Cobben, P. Coppens, B. Freitag, O. Höffe, T. Pogge, G. Reichberg, D. Spini, L. Trocsanyi u.a.

Titans of the Climate

Author: Kelly Sims Gallagher
Publisher: MIT Press
ISBN: 9780262038751
Release Date: 2019-02-05
Genre: Political Science

How the planet's two largest greenhouse gas emitters navigate climate policy. The United States and China together account for a disproportionate 45 percent of global carbon dioxide emissions. In 2014, then-President Obama and Chinese President Xi Jinping announced complementary efforts to limit emissions, paving the way for the Paris Agreement. And yet, with President Trump's planned withdrawal from the Paris accords and Xi's consolidation of power—as well as mutual mistrust fueled by misunderstanding—the climate future is uncertain. In Titans of the Climate, Kelly Sims Gallagher and Xiaowei Xuan examine how the planet's two largest greenhouse gas emitters develop and implement climate policy. Through dispassionate analysis, the authors aim to help readers understand the challenges, constraints, and opportunities in each country. Gallagher—a former U.S. climate policymaker—and Xuan—a member of a Chinese policy think tank—describe the specific drivers—political, economic, and social—of climate policies in both countries and map the differences between policy outcomes. They characterize the U.S. approach as “deliberative incrementalism”; the Chinese, meanwhile, engage in “strategic pragmatism.” Comparing the policy processes of the two countries, Gallagher and Xuan make the case that if each country understands more about the other's goals and constraints, climate policy cooperation is more likely to succeed.
