Clumsy solutions for a complex world : governance, politics and plural perceptions by Marco Verweij ( Book )
17 editions published between 2006 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 262 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Clumsy Solutions for a Complex World is a powerful and original statement on why well-intended attempts to alleviate pressing social ills too often derail, and how effective, efficient and broadly acceptable solutions to social problems can be found. It takes its cue from the idea that our endlessly changing and complex social worlds consist of ceaseless interactions between four organizing, justifying and perceiving social relations. Each time one of these perspectives is excluded from collective decision-making, governance failure inevitably results. Successful solutions are therefore creative combinations of four opposing ways of organizing and thinking
Transboundary environmental problems and cultural theory : the protection of the Rhine and the Great Lakes by Marco Verweij ( Book )
10 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 258 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In this book Marco Verweij makes the first all-out attempt to introduce the cultural theory developed by Mary Douglas, Michael Thompson, Aaron Wildavsky and others to the study of international relations. This cultural analysis has become the topic of a heated debate in other fields of social science. By extending the theory to the study of world politics, this volume presents a new and challenging theoretical framework with which to understand world politics."--BOOK JACKET

Clumsy Solutions for a Complex World ( )
1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
<EM>Clumsy Solutions for a Complex World</EM> is a powerful and original statement on why well-intended attempts to alleviate pressing social ills too often derail, and how effective, efficient and broadly acceptable solutions to social problems can be found. It takes its cue from the idea that our endlessly changing and complex social worlds consist of ceaseless interactions between organizing, justifying and perceiving social relations. Each time one of these perspectives is excluded from collective decision-making, governance failure inevitably results. Successful solutions are therefore creative combinations of four opposing ways of organizing and thinking. This book, jointly written by leading political scientists, anthropologists, economists, lawyers, sociologists, a geographer and an engineer, shows the force of these theoretically sophisticated, yet simple and practical ideas for a number of pressing issues from around the globe
