This book is the product of a collaborative effort involving partners from Africa, Asia, Europe and Latin America who were funded by the International Development Research Centre Programme on Women and Migration (2006-2011). The International Institute of Social Studies at Erasmus University Rotterdam spearheaded a project intended to distill and refine the research findings, connecting them to broader literatures and interdisciplinary themes. The book examines commonalities and differences in the operation of various structures of power (gender, class, race/ethnicity, generation) and their interactions within the institutional domains of intra-national and especially inter-national migration that produce context-specific forms of social injustice. Additional contributions have been included so as to cover issues of legal liminality and how the social construction of not only femininity but also masculinity affects all migrants and all women. The resulting set of 19 detailed, interconnected case studies makes a valuable contribution to reorienting our perceptions and values in the discussions and decision-making concerning migration, and to raising awareness of key issues in migrants’ rights. All chapters were anonymously peer-reviewed. This book resulted from a series of projects funded by the International Development Research Centre (IDRC), Canada.

The International Dimensions Of Democratization In Egypt

This book purports to examine the international dimensions of the democratization process in Egypt in the post Cold War era; a theme which acquired significance at the academic and policy-oriented levels in light of the growing internationalization of reform arrangements in the Arab world in post 9/11 and the greater involvement of external powers in Arab politics following the Arab Spring uprisings. During the second half of the twentieth century, the mainstream scholarship presented the democratization process as the outcome of domestic conditions not significantly influenced by actors outside the nation-state. With the end of the Cold War, this perspective was challenged as a result of the third wave of democratization and the subsequent growth of the “good governance” discourse on the agenda of the international development establishment. The new perspective attached a more significant role to external factors in the democratization process than was originally conceptualized.

Wer wäre berufener als der Dalai Lama, "eine der faszinierendsten Gestalten des 20. Jahrhunderts", uns zu Beginn des neuen Jahrtausends Perspektiven für ein erfülltes Leben aufzuzeigen? Denn trotz des Wohlstands sind viele Menschen gerade in der westlichen Welt mit ihrem Leben unzufrieden, suchen eine neue innere Ruhe, die mit Konsum und Luxus nicht zu erlangen ist. Schritt für Schritt zeigt der Dalai Lama, wie man sich auf positive menschliche Eigenschaften und Werte wie Einfühlungsvermögen, Gemeinschaftssinn und Aufrichtigkeit zu besinnen lernt und schließlich wieder zu einer neuen Ethik des Handelns findet.
