Human insecurity in a global world ( Book )

"The authors in this volume explore a series of human insecurities that are created or exacerbated by new patterns of global interactions. The problems examined include migration, natural disasters, contagious diseases, and environmental change. All of the authors address the policy frameworks, national and international, that shape possible responses to the fresh threats to human security. Many of the challenges described here are already high on the agenda of the international community. By adding a human security dimension to their analysis, these authors provide new insight into attempts to reduce our vulnerability to global changes."--Jacket
Preventing violent conflict in Africa : inequalities, perceptions and institutions by Yōichi Mine( Book )
4 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 66 libraries worldwide
"Horizontal inequalities are root causes of violent conflict in Africa. Yet, people take actions not because of statistical data on inequalities, of which they might not be aware, but because of injustices they perceive. This volume analyses the results of original surveys with over 3,000 respondents in African cities and towns, exposing clear discrepancies between objective inequalities and people's subjective perceptions. The contributors examine experiences in country pairs and probe into the reasons why neighbouring countries, sharing common historical traits, sometimes took contrasting pathways of peace and violent conflict. Combining quantitative analysis and qualitative anatomy of historical experiences of conflict and reconciliation in Rwanda, Burundi, Ghana, Cote d'Ivoire, South Africa, Zimbabwe, Uganda, Tanzania, Kenya and Nigeria, the study brings forward a set of policy recommendations for development practitioners.
