This book began life in many scattered forms, including some of my earlier
writings. But the central argument was forced into a unified form during a
course of ten public lectures that I gave in the autumn of 1998 at the American
University in Cairo. There I tried to explore some of the implications of the
emergence of a single global economy, of globalisation or, in its most extreme
form, the fusion of national economies.
Transparency, predictability and longevity of government programmes are necessary if investors are
to initiate a project in green technologies. For instance, the degree of high uncertainty in American
Production Tax Credits (PTC) was a contributing factor to investor exit from the wind power sector, in

This book is written for those who wish to enhance their understanding of and
competencies with constructively managing conflict. Our interest in developing
this resource came at the request of government and community practitioners with
whom we worked on various projects, ranging from pedagogy in the classroom to
strategic planning and consensus-building in the community. This wide range of

This ASTRA network paper examines barriers to accessing reproductive health services and
supplies in Central and Eastern Europe (CEE). The paper finds that reproductive health is not
prioritised in government policies: they lack a commitment to recognise reproductive health

legislation and policy in this area. Condoms are widely available, but their cost is often high,
