The Food Question In The Middle East from the Author: Malak S. Rouchdy. In recent years, the food question has been a central concern for politicians, economists, international organizations, activists and NGOs alike, as well as social scientists at large. This interest has emerged from the global food crisis and its impact on the environment and the political economy and security of the global south, as well as the expansion of scholarly studies relating food issues to agrarian questions with the objective of developing theoretical frameworks that would allow for a critical analysis of the current food issues at historical, cultural, social, political and economic levels. In this context, Cairo Papers organized its 2016 symposium around the food question in the Middle East. Papers in this collection address the food question from both its food and agricultural aspects, and approach it as the site of political and economic conflicts, as the means of sociocultural control and distinction, and as the expression of national and ethnic identities. Contributors: Ellis Goldberg, Saker ElNour, Hala Barakat, Khaled Mansour, Malak S. Rouchdy, Habib Ayeb, Christian Handerson, Sara Pozzi, and Sara El-Sayed.

Disease Control Priorities Third Edition Volume 7 from the Author: Charles N. Mock. The substantial burden of death and disability that results from interpersonal violence, road traffic injuries, unintentional injuries, occupational health risks, air pollution, climate change, and inadequate water and sanitation falls disproportionally on low- and middle-income countries. Injury Prevention and Environmental Health addresses the risk factors and presents updated data on the burden, as well as economic analyses of platforms and packages for delivering cost-effective and feasible interventions in these settings. The volume's contributors demonstrate that implementation of a range of prevention strategies-presented in an essential package of interventions and policies-could achieve a convergence in death and disability rates that would avert more than 7.5 million deaths a year.

L Afrique Du Sahel Et Du Sahara La M Diterran E from the Author: Brigitte Dumortier. Cet ouvrage prépare à l’une des questions de géographie du CAPES d’histoire-géographie, également retenue comme question de géographie des territoires pour l’agrégation de géographie. Conçu en conformité avec les recommandations du jury, ce livre aborde des problématiques communes à l’ensemble Sahel/Sahara/Afrique du Nord en tant que zone bioclimatique, ensemble géopolitique, aire culturelle et espace économique aux ressources convoités. La perspective dynamique dans laquelle est envisagée cette partie du continent africain réserve la place qui leur revient aux questions de développement, aux circulations ainsi qu’aux mutations des sociétés et des territoires, entre autres la croissance urbaine, mais aussi les adaptations de territoires ruraux. L’ouvrage, qui traite de façon transversale les thèmes suggérés par le texte d’orientation, s’attache aussi à montrer les différenciations internes par une approche multiscalaire. Les synthèses thématiques sont complétées par des études de cas et exemples précis localisés. Le choix des auteurs conjugue l’expérience du pédagogue et celle du chercheur. Les auteurs associent ainsi un travail de première main, fondé sur leur maîtrise de la bibliographie et des sources disponibles ainsi que sur leur expérience de terrain, à un souci didactique d’autant plus présent que plusieurs d’entre eux ont été membres des jurys des concours. Ils présentent des analyses claires à partir de données très à jour et les illustrent par des cartes largement inédites qui tiennent une place importante dans cet ouvrage riche en tableaux et graphiques.

The Status And Distribution Of Freshwater Biodiversity In The Eastern Mediterranean from the Author: Kevin G. Smith. The Eastern Mediterranean region supports just over 4.4% of the global human population yet contains only 1.1% of its renewable water resources, which are under constant threat from the impacts of unsustainable water withdrawal, dam development and climate change. This IUCN report and accompanying dataset represents a major advance in the provision of information to help incorporate biodiversity needs into water development planning processes within an Integrated River Basin Management framework. This volume includes species information compiled for each river and lake sub-basin and incorporates information from the assessment conducted by IUCN's Global Species Programme, in collaboration with its partners, of the status and distribution of all described species of freshwater fishes, molluscs, odonates, and plants from across the Eastern Mediterranean with existing information for species of freshwater dependent amphibians, birds, crustaceans, and mammals. This work represents the most comprehensive assessment yet of freshwater biodiversity at the species level for this part of the world.

Impact Of Aerosols Saharan Dust And Mixed On The East Mediterranean Oligotrophic Ecosystem Results From Experimental Studies from the Author: Paraskevi Pitta. In oligotrophic environments, dust and nutrient inputs via atmospheric routes are considered important sources of macro-nutrients and micro-trace metals fuelling primary and secondary production. Yet, the impact of these dust inputs on the microbial populations is not fully investigated in the Eastern Mediterranean Sea (EMS). The response of oligotrophic systems to dust inputs, whether as positive or negative feedbacks to autotrophic and heterotrophic production and thus to biogeochemical cycling, is important to examine further. Experimental studies have explored nutrient additions in various combinations to determine the limiting resource to productivity or N2 fixation. Recent experimental studies have applied dust enrichments to bottle or mesocosm incubations of seawater from different oceanic regions. This research topic presents two Eastern Mediterranean dust addition mesocosm experiments using, for the first time, real aerosol additions, pure Saharan dust and mixed aerosols (a natural mixture of desert dust and polluted European particles), as well as other EMS aerosol experimental studies. The Topic includes manuscripts introducing results on: a) the impact of Saharan dust vs mixed aerosols on the autotrophic and heterotrophic surface microbial populations in the EMS, b) the impact of single vs multi-pulses of Saharan dust introduction into the pelagic environment of the EMS and c) other experimental studies of aerosol impacts on the EMS ecosystem.

Deference In International Courts And Tribunals from the Author: Lukasz Gruszczynski. International courts and tribunals are often asked to review decisions originally made by domestic decision-makers. This can often be a source of tension, as the international courts and tribunals need to judge how far to defer to the original decisions of the national bodies. As international courts and tribunals have proliferated, different courts have applied differing levels of deference to those originial decisions, which can lead to a fragmentation in international law. International courts in such positions rely on two key doctrines: the standard of review and the margin of appreciation. The standard of review establishes the extent to which national decisions relating to factual, legal, or political issues arising in the case are re-examined in the international court. The margin of appreciation is the extent to which national legislative, executive, and judicial decision-makers are allowed to reflect diversity in their interpretation of human rights obligations. The book begins by providing an overview of the margin of appreciation and standard of review, recognising that while the margin of appreciation explicitly acknowledges the existence of such deference, the standard of review does not: it is rather a procedural mechanism. It looks in-depth at how the public policy exception has been assessed by the European Court of Justice and the WTO dispute settlement bodies. It examines how the European Court of Human Rights has taken an evidence-based approach towards the margin of appreciation, as well as how it has addressed issues of hate speech. The Inter-American system is also investigated, and it is established how far deference is possible within that legal organisation. Finally, the book studies how a range of other international courts, such as the International Criminal Court, and the Law of the Sea Tribunal, have approached these two core doctrines.
