Strategic Behavior and the Environment

New on ejournals@cambridge A-Z : Strategic Behavior and the Environment.

252h

From the EAEREwebsite for the journal:

“As local, national and global environmental and natural resource situations deteriorate, intervention policies become particularly important. The increased level of policy debate regarding environmental and natural resources is well reflected in a rising trend of published analytical work that addresses the interaction between needed policies to better manage environmental and natural resources and the strategic behavior of those who are involved in its design and implementation, and those affected by them. Environmental policy and strategic behavior has become a field that interests researchers from several disciplines in the social sciences, employing different methodologies while addressing similar research questions. Simultaneously, policy makers seek more help from researchers in the process of developing and implementing environmental policies. The impact of the increasing body of such works on both the scientific literature and the policy making process would be much more effective if championed by a high quality publication outlet.

“Strategic Behavior and the Environment is intended to provide a platform for the various disciplines that jointly contribute to our understanding of that field.”

Subjects covered by the title include economics, political science and international relations.

Now available to the University of Cambridge electronically from volume 1 (2011) to present.

British Politics

New on ejournals@cambridge A-Z : British Politics.

26909628174_d9f9b15fee_zFrom the Springer website for the journal:

British Politics (BP) has a wide scope, and seeks to provide a counterweight to the growing fragmentation of this field during recent years. The journal promotes a holistic understanding of British politics by encouraging a closer integration between theoretical and empirical research, between historical and contemporary analyses, and by fostering a conception of British politics as a broad and multi-disciplinary field of study. This incorporates a range of sub-fields, including psephology, policy analysis, regional studies, comparative politics, institutional analysis, political theory, political economy, historical analysis, cultural studies and social policy.”

Now available to the University of Cambridge electronically from volume 1 (2006) to present.

European Review of International Studies

New on ejournals@cambridge A-Z : European Review of international studies.

2390666040_5a9d52b896_o

From the Budrich Journals website for the journal:

“The European Review of International Studies (ERIS) seeks to be a journal to which those who wish to know what is happening in ‘European’ International Relations can turn. It aims to achieve this goal by an extensive review section of monographs published in European languages and review articles of the literature on substantive themes or significant developments in different European academic communities. Its other principal goal is to publish original articles and from time to time translations of existing major articles not readily available in English.

“ERIS aims:

  • To reflect the European specificities and approaches.
  • To be an outlet in English in particular for non-English language authors but including English language authors.
  • To make the Anglophone world aware of research in other languages.
  • To make non-English language authors aware of research in other non-English academic cultures and languages.
  • To encourage transdisciplinarity across the social sciences and humanities among those concerned with international studies broadly defined.
  • To be eclectic in terms of concept, method and approach with rigorous international academic standards.

In short, we seek to be a journal to which those who wish to know what is happening in ‘European’ International Relations can turn.”

Now available to the University of Cambridge electronically from volume 1 (2014) to present.

Just south of Lampedusa island, the Italian Navy transfers 219 migrants to their ship. The migrants include Pakistanis, Syrians, Moroccans, Nigerians, and Nepalis who had left the coast of Libya with smugglers the night before. The Navy ship operates as part of the EU’s “Mare Nostrum” project, searching for boats with migrants trying to cross the Mediterranean Sea.

Mr. Krushchev to the Indian Parliarment, 21 November 1955:

“We are often accused of trying to export communist ideas to other countries; many other stupid things are said about us.  … The question arises of who launches these fabrications about the Soviet Union and why.  They are launched by the reactionary circles so as to browbeat people by false rumours of a communist menace, to whip up war hysteria.  … in our country far from all people are members of the Party or the Komsomol, and we do not strive for this.  But the entire population of our country have united around the Communist Party, rightly regarding it as their organiser and leader.  The people and the Party are inseparable in our country …”
