This report sheds new light on current issues and challenges which local governments, the business sector and organized civil society are facing in Asia. It testifies to the wealth of good, innovative practices that countries of all sizes and development stages have accumulated across Asia. It shows that sustainable human settlements are within reach, and that cooperation between public authorities, the private and the voluntary sectors is the key to success. This report highlights a number of critical issues — demographic and economic trends, poverty and inequality, the environment, climate change and urban governance and management.

This publication is a completely revised, second edition of the popular book of the same title. Aside from being fully updated, this new edition includes the dimension of adaptation to climate change and new risks resulting from climate change. The text provides and combines practical examples from Africa, Asia, the Americas and Europe with theoretical and conceptual frameworks. It is key reading for all those interested in improving risk reduction and adaptation strategies to extreme events and gradual changes in the context of climate change and natural hazards. Measuring vulnerability and evaluating adaptation are essential prerequisites to strengthen the capacities of communities in building resilience through knowledge-based approaches.

Towards Human Resilience: Sustaining MDG Progress in an Age of Economic Uncertainty

THE POTENTIALS AND PITFALLS OF PRIVATE VOLUNTARY PROGRAMS

The global economic crisis has reinforced concerns about the impact of financial and economic shocks on human development. The increasing frequency of such shocks raises questions about their systemic character and the ability of developing countries to withstand the negative impacts of economic uncertainty. Indeed, vulnerability to macro-level shocks has the potential of significantly slowing progress towards the Millennium Development Goals. This report addresses essential questions about economic vulnerability and resilience. Most significantly, it explores how macro-economic crises affect vulnerable economies, what structural characteristics make economies susceptible to the harmful effects of such shocks, and what policies can help developing economies build resilience in the face of unpredictable economic change.

Climate change has become one of the most important and challenging global policy fields. Attention has primarily focused on the successes and failures of states and intergovernmental organizations but many more actors are involved and contribute solutions. The contributions to this book assess the different potentials of existing schemes. They scrutinize how very different programs at national and international levels seek to marry complex public and private goals in and across industries addressing wide groups of firms. Lessons from these programs can help design and improve programs but they also show different types of pitfalls. Lessons learned are relevant not only for climate policy, but for the many other policy fields where private voluntary programs are active.

How to Make Cities More Resilient: A Handbook for Local Government Leaders

Global Compact International Yearbook 2012

This handbook is designed primarily for local government and policymakers in their disaster risk reduction and resilience activities. It offers practical guidance to understand and take action on the “Ten Essentials for Making Cities Resilient,” as set out in the global United Nations campaign "Making Cities Resilient: My City is Getting Ready!". The handbook is built on the knowledge and expertise of campaign partners, participating cities and local governments. It responds to the call for better access to information, knowledge, capacities and tools to effectively deal with disaster risk and extreme climate events. It provides an overview of key strategies and actions needed to build resilience to disasters, as part of an overall strategy to achieve sustainable development.

The main focus of this latest edition is the 2012 UN Conference on Sustainable Development (Rio+20). The event will mark a crossroad for sustainable development. It will set the sustainability agenda for the next decade. Therefore, the world expects that a strong call for responsible and sustainable business practices – as covered by the United Nations Global Compact – will emerge as a result. The aim of this publication is to provide a global overview of the achievements of the Global Compact. It offers proactive and indepth information on key sustainability issues to stakeholders all around the world and promotes unique and comprehensive knowledge exchange and learning in the spirit of the Global Compact principles.

Much of the debate on green growth and environmental governance tends to be general in nature, and is often conceptual or limited to single disciplines – such as green growth being dominated by economists and governance by political scientists. This book examines such terms within the context of wide-interest topics including education, oceans and cities, and mixes conceptual discussion with empirical research. It takes stock of the achievements and obstacles towards sustainability over the last 20 years, and proposes new ideas and changes to create a more sustainable future. Students, academics and professionals interested in the notion of using a green economy and good governance to achieve sustainable development and poverty eradication are recommended to read this book.

This book provides evidence of growing corporate concern about biodiversity loss and offers examples of how some leading companies are taking action to conserve biodiversity and restore ecosystems. It reviews indicators and drivers of biodiversity loss and ecosystem decline, and shows how these present both risks and opportunities to business. It examines the changing preferences of consumers for nature-friendly products and services, and offers examples of how companies respond. The book describes initiatives to enable businesses to measure, value and report their impacts and dependencies on biodiversity and ecosystem services. It examines how businesses can align their actions in relation to biodiversity and ecosystem services with wider corporate social responsibility initiatives, including community engagement and poverty reduction.

Climate Protection and Development

Resilient People, Resilient Planet: A Future Worth Choosing

Jose A. Puppim de Oliveira

This book spells out, in more detail than usual, what can and should be done to avert the real risks of disaster. It summons us to an endeavour worthy of the resources and ingenuity of the twenty-first century - towards bold initiatives with big costs, and much bigger benefits. It explores the interconnected issues of climate and development, laying the groundwork for such a new deal. It presents a challenging agenda, and highlights the needs and perspectives of developing countries which may be unfamiliar or uncomfortable to readers in high-income countries. The unfortunate truth is that any large country, or group of mid-sized countries, can veto any global climate solution by refusing to participate, so a solution will only work if it works for everyone.

The UN Secretary-General launched the High-level Panel on Global Sustainability (GSP) of eminent world figures to formulate a new blueprint for a sustainable future on a planet under increasing stress resulting from human activities. The GSP report explores approaches for building a sustainable, fair and resilient world that serves the needs of all, reduces poverty while strengthening low carbon and inclusive growth, empowers all people, and protects the planet’s life support systems. This report feeds into intergovernmental processes, including preparations for the UN Conference on Sustainable Development (Rio 2012), and the annual meetings of the Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change.

State of the World's Children 2012: Children in an Urban World

While cities have long been associated with employment, development and economic growth, hundreds of millions of children in the world’s urban areas are growing up amid scarcity and deprivation. This publication presents the hardships these children face as violations of their rights, as well as impediments to fulfilling the Millennium Development Goals. It examines major phenomena shaping the lives of children in urban settings, including migration, economic shocks and acute disaster risk. It also provides examples of efforts to improve the urban realities that children confront and identifies broad policy actions that should be included in any strategy to reach excluded children and foster equity in urban settings driven by disparity.

People in the Asia-Pacific region are profoundly affected by climate change. Home to more than half of humanity, the region straddles some of the world’s most geographically diverse and climate-exposed areas. Despite having contributed little to greenhouse gas emissions, mountain dwellers, island communities and other vulnerable communities face serious consequences for actions not of their making, and over which they have little influence. Cross-border climate-impacts that undermine human habitations — melting glaciers, rising sea-levels, degrading coral reefs, desertification, destruction of mangroves or eroding river systems — remain unaddressed without coordinated global responses. This publication outlines four strategic areas for transformation: production processes, fair and sustainable consumption, resilient rural habitats, and urban centres leading change as centres of finance and power.

This publication details the current knowledge of complex and interrelated challenges that are compounding efforts to achieve global food security. It discusses the likely implications for the food and agriculture sector and for hunger and poverty reduction efforts, including the Food and Agriculture Organization's role in assisting its Member States in the coming years. This book is designed for everyone interested in better understanding the dynamics of the current global issues and changing patterns affecting agriculture and natural resources.

Looking Ahead in World Food and Agriculture: Perspectives to 2050

In 2009, the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) organized a Forum and a High-level Expert Meeting on “How to Feed the World in 2050”. This book provides vital statistics and includes valuable papers regarding the meeting. It analyzes several aspects of the perspectives for global agriculture, and it gives FAO’s projections for the years to come. It also explains how macroeconomic indicators underpin the poverty levels in the 2050 horizon. This publication also explores natural resources (notably land and water), as well as capital, investment and technology.

Towards a Green Economy: Pathways to Sustainable Development and Poverty Eradication

Adapting for a Green Economy: Companies, Communities and Climate Change

While much of the responsibility for driving climate change solutions that address the needs of the poorest and most vulnerable rests with governments, it has become increasingly clear that businesses will be an essential partner in preparing for and responding to the impacts of a changing climate and in building a global green economy. Developed in collaboration with Oxfam International, the World Resources Institute and the United Nations Environment Programme, this publication aims to support the efforts leading up to Rio+20, as well as the activities, processes, commitments and partnerships that flow from it. By highlighting the nexus among climate change risks and opportunities, sustainable development and climate change adaptation, this book provides useful guidance to business leaders and policymakers alike.

This publication demonstrates that the greening of economies is not generally a drag on growth but rather a new engine of growth; a net generator of decent jobs, and a vital strategy for the elimination of persistent poverty. It seeks to motivate policymakers to create conditions for increased investments in a transition to a green economy in three ways — by illustrating how added employment through green jobs offsets job losses in a transition to a green economy, by using sustainable forestry and ecologically friendly farming methods to show how a green economy can reduce persistent poverty across a range of important sectors, and by providing concrete suggestions as a guide to achieving this transition.

Enabling Shelter Strategies

Women at the Frontline of Climate Change: Gender Risks and Hopes

Adaptation, vulnerability and resilience of people to climate change depend upon a range of conditions. These vary from their degree of exposure and dependency upon weather patterns for livelihoods and food security, to varying capacities in adaptation, which are influenced by gender, social status, economic poverty, power, access, and control and ownership over resources in the household, community and society. This report demonstrates that women represent a primary resource for adaptation through their experience, responsibilities and strengh, and that women play a much stronger role in the management of ecosystem services and food security. Hence, it argues that sustainable adaptation must focus on gender and the role of women if it is to become successful.

This cutting-edge guide addresses the current need for a succinct reference text on enabling shelter strategies, including the necessity to explain what they are and how they can be implemented. This publication also calls for a fundamental shift in the role of government, from provider to enabler of affordable housing. While such strategies have been used over the last two decades to improve affordable shelter delivery to people who need them, there are very few publications that document the underlying basis of the enabling approach and that actually dwell on how to develop and implement such strategies.

The WWDR4 is a milestone within the WWDR series, reporting directly on regions and highlighting hotspots, and it has been mainstreamed for gender equality. It introduces a thematic approach – ‘Managing Water under Uncertainty and Risk’ – in the context of a world which is changing faster than ever in often unforeseeable ways, with increasing uncertainties and risks. It highlights that historical experience will no longer be sufficient to approximate the relationship between the quantities of available water and shifting future demands. Like the earlier editions, the WWDR4 also contains country-level case studies describing the progress made in meeting water-related objectives.

Volume 1

The theme of a just transition reconciles the sustainable use of natural resources with a pervasive commitment to sufficiency (where over-consumers are satisfied with less so that under-consumers can secure enough). It explores the perplexing logics of a range of different literatures and synthesizes them to illuminate new ways of thinking from a sustainability perspective. It rethinks development with a special reference to the greening of the developmental state, explores the key role that cities could play in the transition to a more sustainably urbanized world, and highlights the neglect of soils in the global discussions around the potential of sustainable agriculture to feed the world. Case studies drawn from the African continent detail the challenges, but they are set in the context of global trends. The authors conclude with their experience of building a community that aspires to live sustainably.

This first report focuses on the demand for and use of natural resources, as drivers and as consequences of economic activity and social development. It provides an overview of resource use patterns in Asia and the Pacific, explains why sustainable resource use and resource efficiency will become an economic and social imperative for the region, and presents information on how resource efficiency and sustainable resource use might be achieved through careful policy design. It aims to inform policymakers and practitioners working on integrated environment and development strategies and also those working on sustainability policies in general.

This report supports the preparations for the United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development, or Rio+20, where one of the themes will be green economy in the context of sustainable development and poverty eradication. It is authored by a panel of independent experts who examined a number of public policy options, including macroeconomic, technology, industrial and trade policies, as well as the role of the international community for promoting a widespread and equitable pursuit of a green economy transition, particularly for developing countries. By taking a structuralist approach, the authors underline that the transition to a green economy involves no less than a technological transformation, with deep impacts on production structures as well as on consumption patterns.

Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) databases provide fundamental energy, materials, land, water consumption data and emissions data into water, air and soil for a wide range of processes, products and materials. In this way the publication provides the bridge between the data users and the data providers, making basic information easily accessible for computing the environmental footprints of materials and products that are key to make and judge green claims and to allow institutional and individual consumers to make informed consumption choices. It includes how to collect raw data, how to develop datasets and how to manage databases. It also addresses questions concerning data documentation and review, coordination among databases, capacity building and future scenarios.

This book demonstrates the value of ecosystems and biodiversity to the economy, society and individuals. It underlines the urgency of strategic policy making and action at national and international levels, and presents a rich evidence base of policies and instruments and a wide range of innovative solutions. It also underlines the needs and ways to transform our approach to natural capital, promote the protection of our environment and contribute to a sustainable economy and the well-being of societies.

Deforestation is responsible for approximately 17% of global greenhouse gas emissions, and is therefore a major contributor to climate change, but also to the loss of biodiversity and ecosystem services and a direct threat to Asia’s great ape, the orangutan. This book offers an overview of the many ecosystem services that the orangutan's forest habitat provides in Sumatra and how estimates for revenue from payments for ecosystem service schemes compare with revenue from other land-use scenarios. This report also aims to emphasize the strong link that exists between biodiversity, ecosystem services and human well-being, to raise awareness and to seek more careful management of natural resources.

This large and comprehensive encyclopaedia, which covers all 72 species of toothed whales, includes the most recent scientific findings on the distribution, migration, behaviour and threats to toothed whales. Toothed whales can be found in a wide range of marine and freshwater habitats, and from the Arctic and Antarctic regions to the tropics. Some of the species can also be found living in large river systems such as the Amazon, Ganges, Indus and Yangtze. This publication will be of interest to all those who are interested in and concerned with the preservation of these large mammals. It will greatly facilitate the development and implementation of action plans that may help reduce the threats to many whale species.

This publication is produced by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), as part of “Global Environmental Outlook-5” (GEO -5) Series that is the United Nations’ most authoritative assessment of the state, trends and outlook of the global environment. Through data, graphics and satellite images, the report offers wide-ranging information on a number of key issues, including population, climate change, energy, resource efficiency, forests, food security and land use, and drinking water. The report points out that the lack of sufficient, solid data and monitoring systems to measure progress remains obstacles to achieving the environmental goals set by the international community. It also highlights the missing pieces in our knowledge about the state of the environment, calling for global efforts to collect scientifically-credible data for environmental monitoring.

Assessment Report on Energy Efficiency Institutional Arrangements in Asia

Human Development Report 2012

The technical and economic viability of energy efficiency (EE) has become more pronounced as concerns about energy security, climate change and low carbon development intensify. Although the promotion of EE has long been identified as an effective policy tool to manage energy demand, active pursuit of EE still lags behind in many Asia/Pacific countries. This gap can be attributed to programmatic, informational and financial barriers as well as weakened capacity of national and regional institutions mandated to promote EE. This report presents a review of the existing EE institutional arrangements in Central, South, and SouthEast Asia and includes a presentation of good practices and case studies of some national and international EE institutions.

The 2012 Report will continue to follow the progress on official development assistance, market access, debt sustainability, access to essential medicines and new technologies as prescribed by the Millennium Development (Goal 8). Closer attention will be given to the impact of the global crisis on meeting the targets, and ways to further increase aid effectiveness following the recommendations of the Fourth High Level Forum on Aid Effectiveness. Some evidence on whether the needs of developing countries are being met will be presented. The Report will also serve as a building block to start formulating the post-2015 development agenda by taking stock of the progress made so far.

This report sets out the background and context to the present-day conditions in Ogoniland, and provides a synthesis of UNEP's findings and gives a set of overarching recommendations to deal with thte multifaceted environmental challenges currently facing the Ogoni people. The assessment covers thematic issues of contaminated land, groundwater, surface water, sediments, vegetation, air pollution, public health and institutional reform. It represents the best available understanding as to what has happened to the environment of Ogoniland - and the corresponding implications for affected populations - and provides clear operational guidelines as to how that legacy can be addressed.

The pace of transformations around the world is extraordinarily swift, and the consequences will be profound. The rapid emergence of the ‘Global South’ will transform 21st century economics and politics in ways at least as fundamental as those witnessed in the wars and technological revolutions of the 20th century. This report seeks to identify how the dynamics of power, voice and wealth in the world are changing. It also aims to identify the policies and institutions necessary to address these 21st century realities and promote greater social equity, sustainability and cohesion.

Policy Options for Effective Implementation of Hyogo Framework for Action in Asia and the Pacific: Developing Innovative Strategies for Flood Resilient Cities

Development Financing and Economic Insecurity

Despite the rise in recent decades in the average income level, economic insecurity has also increased. True for both developing and developed countries, this increasing economic insecurity is harmful for human welfare for several reasons. Job and income insecurity directly affect the material and psychological well-being of people. Economic volatility and high uncertainty also tend to exert negative influence on productive investment, thereby hurting long-term development. This book sheds light on the causes of economic insecurity and how better functioning financial systems, more effective macroeconomic policies and extended micro-financing schemes could mitigate the degree of economic insecurity in developing countries and overcome many of its negative consequences.

This report offers an overview of issues and challenges in managing urban flood risks which reviews socioeconomic impacts of flooding. Impacts of urban development on flood risks are described in the context of adapting to climate change. The report comprises a synthesis of recent developments in innovative strategies for effective urban flood management, as well as case studies of innovative strategies for effective urban flood management. Finally, it reviews policy options derived from collaborative work on urban flood management and a regional expert consultation. The publication highlights the importance of an enabling environment that is characterized by conducive socio-economic conditions, effective governance and institutional structures, resilient communities, and policy frameworks for disaster mitigation in general and urban flooding in particular.

Good Governance Governance, Development and Growth

This survey explains why the "Great Green Technological Transformation" will have to be fully realized in developing countries if they are to achieve food security and rural development, minimize the damage from natural hazards and extreme disasters partly induced by climate change, and transform their economies to beat destitution and create productive jobs. Avoiding the climate change tipping point will require fundamental shifts in existing technologies to transform manufacturing, agriculture, living arrangements and infrastructure and thereby reduce greenhouse gas emissions, make more efficient use of natural resources and derivatives, create less waste, preserve biodiversity and reduce social disparities. The survey assesses options and policies to facilitate a new technological revolution, and the challenges societies face in achieving sustainable development and poverty reduction.

Whilst good governance is a worthy goal by itself, this book argues that it is not a prerequisite for economic growth or development. Challenging the conventional good governance paradigm favoured by the donor community, this book exposes the methodological shortcomings of the commonly-used governance indicators developed within the World Bank. It argues that aggregate good governance indicators are less helpful for identifying governance failure in specific areas needing policy interventions. Bringing together contributions from leading political scientists, political economists and development practitioners, this is the first book that focuses on such good governance issues.

In the light of the current economic difficulties facing traditional development partners and the nonsustainable and non-inclusive nature of performance of the Least Developed Countries (LDCs) over the last decade, LDC governments need to fashion new development paths which tap into dynamic growth poles in the South. This publication explores the role of South-South cooperation and regional developmentalism, and finds that, in order to benefit from evolving South-South relations, LDCs need to transform into Catalytic Development States that are highly sensitive to LDC vulnerabilities and offer new policy agendas. This entails defining relations between LDCs and their Southern development partners to derive gains and minimize threats.

This publication provides a whole new set of ideas on how to overcome the deficiencies in the ongoing process of globalization and in the existing mechanisms for global economic governance. It points out promising directions for reform, including: strengthening government capacities for formulating and implementing national development strategies; doing more to ensure that official development assistance is aligned with national priorities; strengthening the international trade and financial systems so that countries with limited capabilities can successfully integrate into the global economy; and creating new mechanisms for dealing with deficiencies. The authors do not pretend to offer a blueprint, but aim instead at presenting ideas that could become the basis for a new, coherent “toolbox” designed to guide development policies and international cooperation.

Public Works Programmes (PWPs) are widely implemented in developing countries, often with funding from major international donor agencies. They provide employment for the chronically poor while creating assets for the state, offering a transfer of welfare which is also a tangible economic investment. This book critically explores the concept of the PWPs and questions their social protection performance in the context of chronic poverty. It reviews over 200 PWPs in eastern and southern Africa, using original research drawn from extensive field analysis, interviews and survey work. It also examines case studies of six international PWPs — in India, Argentina, Ireland, Ethiopia, Indonesia and the USA. It is argued that the current PWPs approach may not look so attractive from the beneficiary's perspective.

The Millennium Development Goals Report 2012

Financing Human Development in Asia, Africa and the Middle East

This Report presents the yearly assessment of global progress towards the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), showing that although significant strides have been made since 1990, reaching all the MDGs by 2015 remains challenging because progress has failed to reach the most vulnerable. The report indicates what is required to ensure continued progress. This year's report also mentions the progress monitoring possibilities after 2015. The findings are based on a master set of data compiled by the Inter-Agency and Expert Group on MDG indicators led by the Statistics Division of the Department of Economic and Social Affairs. The document aims at reaching policy makers, government statisticians, researchers and the press.

This book assesses feasible financing strategies for policymakers to follow in pursuance of human development, taking as reference the United Nations' Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and their achievement by 2015. These strategies are analyzed in the context of broader concerns of economic development with special reference to nine countries from Africa, Asia and the Middle East; that is, how to make macroeconomic policies support more effectively sustained growth while reducing widespread poverty and inequalities and other human development gaps in low- and middle-income countries, especially in times of global economic crises or external shocks. In this sense, this book adds new evidence regarding the social deficits in these countries and suggests policy options to overcome these.

This is a biennially recurring publication of the United Nations. This year, it is largely based on an e-discussion with young people and representatives of youth-led organizations on the transition from schools and training institutions into the world of work. It shares the participants’ views, experiences and recommendations on preparing for, entering, and remaining active in the labour force. Young people are crucial stakeholders in the pursuit of decent and productive work for all, often pioneers in their respective fields, yet, too frequently, their voices go unheard and their positive and negative experiences and viewpoints go unshared, particularly with decision-makers. This report brings young people’s voices into the forefront where youth issues are discussed and acted upon. .

Africa Human Development Report

World Investment Report 2012

Sub-Saharan Africa has the highest prevalence of hunger in the world. Until this situation improves, the human development prospects of millions of Africans will remain at risk. United Nations Development Programme’s first Africa Human Development Report shows that food security and human development reinforce each other. If African countries are to realize their long-term potential, the report says, they must boost agricultural productivity to both improve the availability of food and reduce poverty. Policies to enhance nutrition are central to ensuring that access to food translates into human development. The report argues further that local populations must have the resources and decision-making power to produce and consume nutritious food throughout the year, overcoming the risks represented by continuing conflict, climate change and variations in food prices.

This annual report is widely regarded as the most authoritative source of data and analysis on the trends of foreign direct investment and developments in related national and international policy. Every issue of the report comprises an analysis of the trends in foreign direct investment during the previous year; with special emphasis on the development implications. It also provides a ranking of the largest transnational corporations in the world; in-depth analysis of a specific topic related to foreign direct investment; policy analysis and recommendations, and a statistical annex with data on foreign direct investment flows and stocks for nearly 200 economies. The 2012 edition presents a comprehensive investment policy framework for sustainable development, covering both its national and international dimensions.

Globalization and Economic Diversification: Policy Challenges for Economies in Transition

Survey of Economic and Social Developments in the ESCWA Region 2010-2011

The transition countries in Eastern and South-Eastern Europe and Central Asia were hit harder than any other region in the world by the global recession of 2008–2009. Economic recovery started in the second half of 2009, but—for most of these economies—the crisis made painfully clear that the transition from a centrally planned to an open market economy has brought about new prosperity which is highly sensitive to global economic shocks. This publication aims to answer fundamental questions and spell out policy options to address the challenges for these economies in transition. It includes comparative studies focusing on all transition economies, including Central and Eastern Europe, as well as regions such as Western Balkans and the Commonwealth of Independent States.

Economic and Social Developments

This survey is mainly a technical view of the major factors and variables affecting Arab economies, with an attempt to bridge the huge gap between the social and the economic by dedicating a chapter to social policy, with focus on major recent trends in health, education, and social protection in member countries. It provides data and attempts to understand and explain the dynamics of regional, subregional and country social and economic trends. The survey aims to provide interested readers, governments, and the general public with a snapshot of the current socio-economic situation and the outlook for 2012.

This report surveys research and policy in the field of gender and economic development, with particular emphasis on economic literature and practice. It is mainly based on an analytical framework for applying gender and economic development concepts to policy by linking production relations in the household to macroeconomy. It provides a history of gender and economic development thought, and includes a statistical overview of women and men in developing economies, covering data on employment, Millennium Development Goals, and composite indices of gender equality. It also contrasts standard economic approaches to macroeconomy with one that reflects how meso-level institutions like markets or the public sector are themselves "bearers of gender", explicitly incorporating the production of human capabilities in the domestic sector.

This publication is the tenth issue of the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) Innocenti Report Card Series, built around a "league table", ranking countries according to their performance on a key child indicator or group of indicators. It investigates poverty and vulnerability among children in rich countries using a perspective that goes beyond the traditional monetary approach and includes measures of multidimensional poverty. The research uses the most up-to-date data for the most economically advanced countries. The report attempts to show which countries are allowing children to fall behind by more than is necessary in education, health and material well-being, using the best performing countries as a minimum standard for what can be achieved.

The Hidden Alternative: Co-operative Values, Past, Present and Future

In light of the recent global economic recession, this publication seeks to challenge the hegemony of the investor led business model in economics and business studies, and needs to be promoted in relation to these debates. The contributions to this book demonstrate that co-operation offers a real and much needed alternative for the organization of human economic and social affairs, one that should establish its place at the forefront of public and academic discussion and policy making. It includes chapters on education, fair trade, politics and governance, planning, and sustainability and on how co-operatives have coped with the global economic crisis.

This publication analyzes the socio-economic impact of conflict and its spillover effects on food insecurity in the ESCWA region. It argues that conflict-affected countries and territories can promote food security nationally and that the nexus between conflict and food insecurity can be broken through the provision of new economic opportunities. It studies sectoral and country-level policies and explores regional policy options while identifying data gaps and opportunities for further research, stressing that food security and conflict are intertwined regional issues. The publication includes policy recommendations for Iraq, Palestine, the Sudan and Yemen, as well as the region and the international community on the development of national and regional policies and programmes to support food security while mitigating the impact of conflict.

This publication examines the main debates under way on social protection and co-responsibility transfer programmes in the region. It identifies the role played by these programmes and considers the conceptual elements, needs and the challenges that will have to be overcome to consolidate comprehensive social protection systems in Latin America. The authors argue that these should be solidarity-based systems that provide universal coverage and are essentially egalitarian in the guarantees established as citizens’ rights. Citizenship as a whole is thus becoming part of protection policies as the region moves towards allencompassing social policies that combine the complementary principles of targeting as the instrument and universality as the end.

In the aftermath of the Arab uprising, understanding the present in view of the recent past and projecting the near future is almost an impossible task. The ground rules of the Arab economies that prevailed in the past decades have been put to the test, and a dramatic review of the political economy of the previous social contract is out for questioning. This survey is mainly a technical view of the major factors and variables affecting Arab economies, with an attempt to bridge the huge gap between the social and the economic. It provides data and attempts to understand and explain the dynamics of regional, sub-regional and country social and economic trends.

Policy Guidebook for SME Development in Asia and the Pacific

World Economic Situation and Prospects 2012

This timely report provides an overview of the most recent global economic performance and short-term prospects for the world economy. It discusses several policy directions which could avoid a double-dip recession, and it covers a wide range of important development issues that are of interest to all countries and regions of the world. One of the main purposes of this publication is to serve as a point of reference for discussions on economic, social and related issues that will take place in various United Nations forums and entities over the coming months.

Economic Development in Africa Report 2011: Fostering Industrial Development in Africa in the New Global Environment

Preliminary Overview of the Economies of Latin America and the Caribbean 2011

This publication shows that the Latin American and Caribbean economy in 2011 was recovering from the global financial crisis. It also recalls that the positive outlook for the region’s economy can be exemplified by the fact that household consumption continued to grow. Thanks to rising real wages and strong job creation, the regional unemployment rate went down in 2011. Readily available credit at low interest rates in many countries actually contributed to a fresh rise in gross fixed capital formation, which took the investment ratio to a new record. Finally, the report also shows that driven mainly by high international prices, the inflation rate in 2011 rose just slightly compared to the previous year.

This publication examines the status of industrial development in Africa with a focus on the identification of "stylized facts" associated with African manufacturing. It provides an analysis of past attempts at promoting industrial development in the region and the lessons learned from these experiences. It offers policy recommendations on how to foster industrial development in Africa in the new global environment characterized by changing international trade rules, growing influence of industrial powers from the South, the internationalization of production, and increasing concerns about climate change. Finally, it argues that a new industrial policy is needed to induce structural transformation and engender development in African economies.

Information Economy Report 2011: ICTs as an Enabler for Private Sector Development

Human Development Report 2011: Sustainability and Equity - A Better Future for All

One of the few monitoring global trends related to information and communication technologies (ICTs) from a development perspective, this publication is a valuable reference for policymakers in developing countries. Special attention is given to ICTs in accelerating private sector development (PSD) in developing countries. Many national and donor strategies related to PSD fail to take adequate account of the ICT potential, which has greatly expanded thanks to changes in the global ICT landscape. Different facets of the ICT-PSD interface are explored, including: ICT infrastructure as a factor in the investment climate; ICT use by the private sector; the ICT sector as a part of the private sector, and finally, ICT use in interventions aimed at facilitating PSD.

This report examines the urgent global challenge of sustainable development and its relationship to rising inequality within and among countries. It strives to identify polices that would make development both more sustainable and more equitable. The integral relationship between inequality and unsustainability is recognized. The inequitably apportioned control and consumption of natural resources is a key driver of global warming — and yet those who will suffer most from climate change are disproportionately those least responsible for environmental deterioration. The report seeks to identify ways in which sustainability and equity can be jointly advanced. It examines long-term trends in inequality at national and global levels, and argues why it is essential to promote practices today that will both increase sustainability and reduce inequality for future generations..

Trade and Human Development: A Practical Guide to Mainstreaming Trade

Diagnostic for Industrial Value Chain Development DIAGNOSTICS FOR INDUSTRIAL VALUE CHAIN DEVELOPMENT

An Integrated Tool

Nearly four billion people live on $2 a day or less. More than a billion of them live in extreme poverty, subsisting on less than $1.25 a day. Since 2003, world trade expanded at an average annual rate of 16 per cent, before collapsing as a result of the global economic crisis in 2009. Despite the growth, the benefits of trade are still unequally distributed both within and across countries. For example in 2009, three countries accounted for 40 per cent of world merchandise exports while the 48 least developed countries accounted for less than one per cent. This publication discusses the dynamics of trade mainstreaming in developing countries by drawing on the experience of 14 case studies. The objective is to look more closely at the context in which trade mainstreaming occurs, and to identify the common elements of success in mainstreaming trade in national development strategies.

Promoting industrial value chains in developing countries is a promising approach to foster economic development, create jobs and induce inclusive growth while addressing social and environmental issues. However, such promotion requires understanding of the status of development in the value chain and the complex linkages among its actors and with the socio-political environment. This publication assists analysts and decision makers in obtaining a complete picture of the status quo in a given value chain using rapid data collection and analysis methods. This type of diagnostic is useful at any point of value chain development: at the outset, when choosing the value chain, during the analysis phase and later during implementation, monitoring, evaluation and adjustment.

Latin America and the Caribbean in the World Economy: The Region in the Decade of the Emerging Economies

State of the World's Volunteerism Report 2011: Universal Values for Global Well-being

In most societies, millions of people make significant contributions to economic and social development through voluntary action. This report supports a better understanding of volunteerism by exhibiting its universality, scope and reach, and by highlighting new trends in the 21st century. It examines the important contributions in diverse fields such as enhanced livelihoods, social inclusion, social cohesion, disaster risk reduction, governance and political participation. This publication also provides an alternative vision towards a better society. It is expected to lead to enhanced recognition, facilitation, networking and promotion of volunteerism worldwide and to an increased recognition of United Nations Volunteers' critical role in peace and development as well as in norm-setting in the United Nations System.

This publication covers the Latin America and the Caribbean region within the context of the decade of the emerging economies. It is divided into three parts that consider: crisis and convergence in the international arena; relations between Latin America and the Caribbean and its main partners outside the region, and challenges for Latin America and the Caribbean in achieving better integration with the world economy. Among other things, it is highlighted that lower growth in the industrialized countries is starting to act as a drag on the main emerging economies. The slowdown in the industrialized countries is affecting China and, particularly, Brazil and India. If these trends continue, the report argues that exports to Europe and the United States will slow in 2012.

As drivers of economic growth and prosperity, small and medium enterprises (SMEs) play a key role in economic development. However, the SME sectors of developing Asia-Pacific economies face issues (both general and nation-specific) that hinder their growth. There is a strong need to tackle such issues while taking into account the variety of experiences, policies and programmes of different countries. Covering major SME constraints — business enabling environment, entrepreneurial culture, access to finance, innovation and technology adaptation, business development services, and market access — this publication proposes public policy guidelines with an aim to develop a vibrant SME sector. It serves as a training manual for entrepreneurs, trainers as well as business associations for SME capacity building.

Report on the World Social Situation 2011: The Global Social Crisis

This report explores the social impact of the great recession and warns of the possibility of continuing global social crisis in the face of increasing fiscal consolidation and austerity measures, which threaten the sustainability of a recovery. The effects of the current financial and economic crisis on social progress have been sharp, widespread, and deep. Given the fragility of the economic recovery and uneven progress in major economies, social conditions are expected to recover slowly. Increased poverty, hunger and unemployment due to the crisis will continue to affect billions of people in many developed and developing countries for years to come. Austerity measures in response to high government debt in some advanced economies are not only threatening public sector employment and social expenditure, but are also making the recovery more uncertain and fragile.

Many African economies are still characterized by a heavy reliance on the primary sector, high vulnerability to external shocks, jobless growth and slow progress towards social development. It is essential for African countries to promote economic diversification and structural transformation as a means to accelerate and sustain broad-based and shared high-employment-generating growth. This report highlights that failure of earlier state-led and market-driven approaches to promoting economic transformation points to the need for fostering long-term investment, rapid and sustained economic growth, equity and social development within inclusive, transparent and comprehensive development frameworks.

A contribution to the policy discourse on the direction and impact of social protection in Asia and the Pacific, this report presents the political and economic case for social protection and the need to bring social protection into the mainstream of development policy formulation. While many countries of the region have some form of social protection in place, only a fraction of those who need assistance actually benefit. It is argued that these programmes can act as the building blocks for more comprehensive social protection systems which can meet the needs of so many more. Universal coverage is promoted as a way to most effectively and proactively impact on people's lives, and especially the most vulnerable groups in society.

Paths to 2015 MDG Priorities in Asia and the Pacific

Assessment of Development Results: Evaluation of UNDP Contribution - Lao PDR (Second)

The Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) are to be achieved by 2015. World leaders gathered again at the United Nations High-level Plenary Meeting on the MDGs in September 2010 in New York to assess some of the likely outcomes on present trends, identify some of the weakest areas of performance, and identify priorities for accelerated action. This publication looks at some of the key drivers which have propelled MDG achievement in the region, and which are likely to remain important in the region’s quest for reaching the Goals by 2015. It focuses specifically on three areas where increased and sustained policy attention is required: hunger and food security; health and basic services, and basic infrastructure – areas where many countries in the region face significant challenges.

This independent Assessment of Development Results in Lao PDR, conducted by the Evaluation Office of the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), is part of a series of country-level evaluations. The evaluation examined the UNDP contribution to Lao PDR’s development from 2007 to 2010 and provides forward-looking recommendations that are useful for the formulation of the new UNDP country programme in Lao PDR.

Global Report on Trafficking in Persons

Women and the Right to Adequate Housing

Publisher: United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) Publication Date: December 2012 ISBN: 9789211303094 Pages: 100 Price: TBD

Despite the right to adequate housing being recognized in international human rights law, over a billion people live in precarious conditions — many of them women. This publication aims to shed some light on the main underlying reasons for their plight and offer guidance on measures to prevent and eradicate discrimination against women with respect to housing rights. The first chapter describes the international legal and policy frameworks for the implementation of women’s right to adequate housing — human rights treaties, the principle of non-discrimination and the progressive realization of all rights. Chapter II outlines the main underlying causes — from discriminatory statutory laws to customary laws and practices, and lack of access to legal and other remedies. Finally, Chapter III elaborates on selected issues such as forced evictions, degraded living conditions, and cultural and religious recognition of women’s rights.

Defying Victimhood: Women and Post-conflict Peacebuilding

Publisher: Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) Publication Date: May 2012 ISBN: 9789211541922 Pages: 66 Price: $15.00

Women are among the most competent, yet marginalized, unnoticed and underutilized actors in efforts to rebuild war-torn societies. Opportunities for sustainable peacebuilding are lost — and sustainable peace is at risk — when significant stakeholders in a society’s future peace and conflict architecture are excluded from efforts to heal the wounds of war and build a new society and a new state. The contributors to this book draw on comparative case and country studies from post-conflict contexts in different parts of world to offer their insights into frameworks for understanding women as both victims and peacebuilders, to trace the road that women take from victimhood to empowerment and to highlight the essential partnerships between women and children and how they contribute to peace. The authors examine the roles of women in political and security institutions.

The United Nations International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda (ICTR) Library CD-ROM/DVD is an important Legacy project in a variety of different ways. Although it has almost the same level of coverage as the case law on the ICTR website, it is as of now the only ICTR jurisprudential product that addresses the digital divide and can therefore be accessible to a broader audience with no internet access. This fully searchable collection of documents pertaining to the ICTR is offered as a prime reference tool for legal professionals, law students, historians, the media and the general public. The ICTR was set up in the wake of the 1994 Rwandan genocide to try those responsible for the deaths of hundreds of thousands of people.

Selected Decisions of the Committee on the Elimination of Racial Discrimination

After Oppression: Transitional Justice in Latin America and Eastern Europe

AFTER OPPRESSION Transitional Justice in Latin America and Eastern Europe EDITED BY

Vesselin Popovski & Mónica Serrano

This first volume of selected decisions of the Committee on the Elimination of Racial Discrimination, presents a selection of 32 of the Committee’s most significant decisions on individual cases, addressing the issue of racial discrimination in relation to civil and political rights as well as economic, social and cultural rights. Throughout its existence, the Committee has established and developed its own jurisprudence on the admissibility criteria under the Convention on the Elimination of Racial Discrimination. The Committee has addressed a variety of issues concerning different forms of discrimination. The index –by article of the Convention, by subject, and by author and victim – aims at facilitating the reader’s access to the relevant jurisprudence.

This book aims to enquire into the effectiveness of various accountability mechanisms. Drawing comparisons from case studies in Latin America and Eastern Europe, it demonstrates that while there are many different paths to truth and justice, all depend on continued efforts in order to reach them. In many cases, these efforts also create favourable conditions for the development of a resilient human rights culture. The experiences across regions show that democratic consolidation and accountability for past human rights violations are closely related, if independent, processes. This accessible book makes an important contribution towards better understanding those processes and the relationship between them.

Human Rights and Conscientious Objection to Military Service

Voices for Children: A Global Study on Independent Human Rights Institutions for Children

This publication addresses sensitive topics such as selective conscientious objection to particular wars, conscientious objection for those who have volunteered to serve in the armed forces and conscientious objection for those in the reserves. For persons who are or may be conscripted into the armed forces, this book specifies issues relating to their right to know their rights in due time and the applicable procedures, decision-making processes for dealing with applications, and the requirements of a fair and impartial procedure. Concerning alternative service to military service for conscientious objectors, this book addresses the difference in treatment between non-combatant alternative service and civilian alternative service, as well as the length and conditions of alternative service and under what circumstances they may be different from the length and conditions of military service.

Independent Human Rights Institutions for Children, referred to as "Ombuds for Children", have gained considerable importance in implementing the Convention on the Rights of the Child, and as key contributors to policy processes for child rights. Ombuds for Children monitor the actions of governments and other actors that affect children, promote children’s rights, and facilitate dialogue between children and the State. Many countries established, or are setting up, such institutions. International networks exist to facilitate and support these efforts. This study examines independent institutions for children’s rights, with a view to informing decision-making. It analyzes their distinctive value in the realization of children’s rights, highlights practical considerations, and identifies conditions for their effective functioning.

International Legal Protection of Human Rights in Armed Conflict

International human rights law and international humanitarian law share the goal of preserving the dignity and humanity of all. Over the years, the General Assembly, the Commission on Human Rights and, more recently, the Human Rights Council have considered that, in armed conflict, parties to the conflict have legally binding obligations concerning the rights of persons affected by the conflict. Although different in scope, international human rights law and international humanitarian law offer a series of protections to persons in situations of armed conflict, whether civilians, persons who are no longer participating directly in hostilities or active participants in the conflict. This publication provides a thorough legal analysis and guidance to State authorities, human rights and humanitarian actors and others on the application of international human rights law and international humanitarian law for the protection of persons.

HUMA N R I GHTS

Trafficking in persons is a truly global phenomenon. The International Labour Organization (ILO) estimates that at least 2,450,000 persons are currently being exploited as victims of human trafficking. And yet, many countries have only recently passed, and some have yet to pass, legislation making human trafficking a distinct crime. This publication focuses on patterns and flows of trafficking in persons at the national, regional and international levels, and shares best practices and lessons learned from various initiatives and mechanisms. It also gives an overview of the international, national and United Nations System responses to trafficking in persons.

Transnational Trafficking and the Rule of Law in West Africa: A Threat Assessment

TRANSNATIONAL TRAFFICKING AND THE RULE OF LAW IN WEST AFRICA: A Threat Assessment

West Africa suffers from a combination of factors that make it vulnerable to organized crime. It is one of the poorest regions on earth. In many countries governance is weak. Illicit trafficking routes can be found throughout the region. Criminal groups can recruit foot soldiers from a large pool of desperate youth. This publication recalls that West Africa is under attack, from within and especially from abroad. It argues that it is time for the world – and the governments concerned – to respond to the threat before more of the common wealth is stolen, more lives are lost, and before criminality deepens its penetration of state institutions and society at large.

The European Agreement concerning the International Carriage of Dangerous Goods by Inland Waterways (ADN) agreed in Geneva on 26 May 2000, under the auspices of the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE) and the Central Commission for Navigation on the Rhine (CCNR), entered into force on 28 February 2008. The Agreement currently has fourteen Contracting Parties. The Regulations annexed to the ADN contain provisions concerning dangerous substances and articles; provisions concerning their carriage in packages and in bulk on board inland navigation vessels; approval procedures, recognition of classification organizations, as well as monitoring, training and examination of experts.

ICTR Special Bibliography Bibliographie spéciale du TPIR

The Model Law is a template for domestic procurement legislation. Its main objectives are to enhance efficiency and effectiveness, and to avoid abuse in the procurement process (through promoting competition and participation, integrity, fair and equitable treatment and transparency). The 2011 Model Law replaces a 1994 text, which proved very successful as the basis for some 30 national laws, and the inspiration for many more. It is used by the multilateral development banks as a tool for procurement reform and as part of the country systems approach to procurement. It contains procedures to implement its objectives, whether procurement is conducted electronically or on paper, and reflects the professionalization of the procurement function. The Model Law is accompanied by a Guide to Enactment, which explains the policy considerations and options for procurement systems.

This bibliography was compiled by the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda (ICTR) Legal Library and Reference Section. It contains most of the publications written on the work of the ICTR during its lifetime. Published documents cover various areas, including the establishment of the Tribunal, the cooperation with national courts, case proceedings, as well as the contribution of the Tribunal in the development of international criminal justice. This bibliography will serve as a helpful tool in locating resources written on the work of the ICTR during his existence.

Regional Transnational Organized Crime Threat Assessment

H U MAN RIG H TS

This regional assessment is broadly focused on transnational organized crime issues (including drug trafficking) and the linkages with development, governance and security in East Africa, Central America and the Caribbean, East Asia and the Pacific, and West Africa. This publication provides a more comprehensive and nuanced picture of contraband flows, criminal markets and their political, social and economic impacts on the regions in question. It is a way to refocus the strategic dialogue on emerging transnational organized crime threats, and the recommendations it yields are built back into policy analysis and programme development throughout the United Nations System, including at the regional and country levels.

The UNCITRAL Model Law on Cross-Border Insolvency: The Judicial Perspective

This text responds to requests for information and guidance for judges on cross-border-related insolvency issues, particularly on the UNCITRAL Model Law on Cross-Border Insolvency. It examines the provisions of the UNCITRAL Model Law, ordered to reflect the sequence in which applications for recognition and assistance would generally be considered by the receiving court, under the Model Law, as distinct from an article by article analysis. It offers general guidance, from a judge's perspective, on the issues relevant to deciding those applications, based on the intentions of those who crafted the Model Law and the experiences of its use in practice. It does not purport to instruct judges on how to deal with such applications, nor does it suggest that a single approach is either possible or desirable.

United Nations Model Double Taxation Convention between Developed and Developing Countries: 2011 Update

This publication is designed especially for developing countries and countries with economies in transition. The revision updates the widely used 2001 version of the Model. It is important for countries that seek assistance in the negotiation and implementation of modern bilateral double tax treaties reflecting their current circumstances and policy priorities. The Model recognizes that to avoid double taxation of investment, the country where the investment takes place and country of the investor often share taxing rights. The Model helps to move forward in a way that preserves an appropriate share of taxing rights for developing countries. It also promotes cooperation to deal with tax avoidance and evasion. Primary audiences are policy makers, diplomats, the general public, media and universities. USD 69 ISBN: 978-92-1-133720-4 Published at the United Nations, New York

THE WORK OF THE INTERNATIONAL LAW COMMISSION

Parliaments perform vital roles in a democracy. Their authority rests on their ability to represent and articulate the interests of citizens in ways that no other institution can. However, in a complex and fastmoving environment, many parliaments are having to change the way that they perform in order to retain their legitimacy and relevance. This publication seeks to provide an overarching analysis of the state of parliaments worldwide. The central theme of this report is the changing relationship between parliaments and citizens. While emphasizing the diversity among parliaments, it looks in particular at reforms designed to enhance this relationship. This report benefits from inputs from parliaments, parliamentarians, parliamentary development practitioners and academics. The annex contains key statistical data on parliaments.

This volume contains the summary records of the meetings of the International Law Commission on its 57th session (2 May – 3 June and 11 July – 5 August 2005). The issues discussed at that session included: unilateral acts of States, diplomatic protection, State responsibility, reservations to treaties and international liability for injurious consequences arising out of acts not prohibited by international law.

No area of the world faces a greater challenge with regard to resource-related conflict than Central Africa. The violence and instability in the region has cost millions of lives, ranking among the most deadly in recent history. All those presently indicted by the International Criminal Court come from Central Africa, broadly defined, and more children are exploited in armed conflict in Central Africa than in any other part of the world. While the causes of the conflict are complex, there can be little doubt that resource theft and smuggling have enabled armed groups and perpetuated an environment of lawlessness and impunity. This publication assesses the mechanics of how contraband and resource smuggling fuel conflict, prolong instability and retard development.

Based upon the experience of the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) in crisis affected contexts, this book provides insights on new approaches to governance promotion, analysis and programming, that are adapted to the challenges of fragility in the 21st century. Relying on interviews with policymakers, partners and programme staff, the publication draws attention to innovative and promising practices in governance and highlights the importance of ensuring approaches based upon rebuilding social contracts and consolidating peacebuilding gains.

Estimating Illicit Financial Flows Resulting from Drug Trafficking and Other Transnational Organized Crimes

Estimating illicit financial flows rEsulting from drug trafficking and othEr transnational organizEd crimEs Research report

A number of leading experts in the fields of public law, political science and democratization studies contributed to this book to identify ways of making African governments accountable and describe the extent to which these mechanisms work in practice. It presents new knowledge about legal and political developments in a number of African countries that are relevant to the policy goal of developing and deepening democratic governance and accountable government on the continent. This book is of interest to academics, students and practitioners in the fields of public law, public administration, political studies and African studies.

Garnered through the proceeds of illicit trafficking and other forms of organized profit-motivated crime, dirty money promotes bribery and corruption and finances insurgency. It also destabilizes and deters legitimate enterprise, foreign investment and development. This overview analyzes the nature of illicit financial flows, the socio-economic impacts as well as the existing international instruments to tackle this problem, and provides a case study of the transnational cocaine market.

UNCITRAL Digest of Case Law on the UNCITRAL Model Law on International Commercial Arbitration

Treaty Handbook

Revised and updated, this handbook by the Treaty Section of the United Nations Office of Legal Affairs is intended as a contribution to UN efforts to assist States in becoming parties to the international treaty framework. It is written in simple language and, with the aid of diagrams and step-by-step instructions, touches upon many aspects of treaty law and practice. This handbook is designed for use by States, international organizations and other relevant entities. In particular, it is intended to provide some degree of assistance to States that may have scarce resources and limited technical proficiency in treaty law and practice to participate fully in the multilateral treaty framework.

This publication contains a presentation of case laws rendered in jurisdictions having enacted the UNCITRAL Model Law on International Commercial Arbitration. In light of the large number of cases collected, the Commission requested a tool specifically designed to present selected information on the interpretation and application of the Model Law in a clear, concise and objective manner. This request originated the UNCITRAL Digest of Case Law on the UNCITRAL Model Law on International Commercial Arbitration. The purpose of the digest is to assist in the dissemination of information on the Model Law and further promote its adoption as well as its uniform interpretation and application. In addition, the digest is meant to help judges, government officials, arbitrators, practitioners and academics use more efficiently the case law relating to the UNCITRAL text.

United Nations e-Government Survey 2012: e-Government for the People

European Union Enlargement and Turkish Labour Migration

The survey was prepared in a context of multiple challenges to achieving sustainable development goals and a call for responsive and collaborative government. It explores the institutional framework for e-government and finds that the existence of a chief information officer acting as a national coordinating authority can help overcome internal barriers and focus minds on integrated responses to citizen concerns. The survey argues that e-government provides administrators with powerful tools for grappling with social equity and digital divide issues. Governments must find effective channels of communication that fit national circumstances while also taking steps to increase usage of online and mobile services to benefit citizens. The survey explores global e-government development and how best to move ahead.

Reports of International Arbitral Awards, Vol.XXIX

Intellectual Property Commercialization: Policy Options and Practical Instruments

Innovation is the key driver of economic growth and development. A well-balanced, affordable and reliable system of intellectual property rights is needed to protect the — often large and highly risky — investments of innovative and creative companies against potential imitators and thereby provide key incentives to undertake such investments in the first place. Countries with economies in transition face particular challenges to integrate into global production networks and to find their own niche in the increasingly global value chains. This book discusses intellectual property management and focuses on the challenges that research organizations and small/medium enterprises face in using the intellectual property system, particularly in transition countries, and on the policy options available to support them.

International Arbitral Awards are of considerable importance, for they are a “subsidiary means for the determination of the rules of law” as provided in Article 38 of the Statue of the International Court of Justice. They are also important from the point of view of the progressive development of international law. The present volume of the United Nations Reports of International Arbitral Awards consists of a collection of awards and similar decisions relating to a particular field of international law, namely the delimitation and demarcation of international boundaries. It contains awards handed down in 34 different dispute-settlement procedures over a period of more than 150 years, from the late 18th century to mid-20th century.

SERVICE SECTOR REFORMS: ASIA-PACIFIC PERSPECTIVES

This is a collection of studies on services, most of which were presented at the conference on “Reforming services for inclusive and sustainable development of Asia and the Pacific” held in Bali, Indonesia in October 2010. The collection provides an agenda for future empirical research and must be perceived as a start. Its aim is to pinpoint key research questions and policy challenges, for which more focused analytical scrutiny, better data and more fine-tuned modelling efforts can hope to produce findings to improve public policies. Work of this nature may underpin the formulation, conducting and implementation of trade and investment policies, both within the remit of domestic reforms and of international cooperation and preferential and multilateral negotiations.

This compendium is comprised of various case studies that focus on advancing citizen engagement by using information and communication technology (ICT) applications. Through mobile technology, ICT applications are working to deliver essential services in many parts of the world. ICT applications compliment and work together with government bodies to help deliver services in education, health, agriculture and financial empowerment – just to name a few. Mobile technology also allows information to become increasingly accessible to many different populations. ICT’s advancements through mobile technology are engaging people of all ages and are quickly gaining popularity in the developing parts of the world.

Good Practices and Innovations in Public Governance 2003-2011

The Firearms Model Law has been developed by the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime to assist States in implementing the provisions contained in the Protocol against the Illicit Manufacturing of and Trafficking in Firearms, their Parts and Components and Ammunition, supplementing the United Nations Convention against Transnational Organized Crime. By distinguishing between mandatory and optional provisions, and suggested provisions stemming from other legal instruments, the Model Law offers flexible solutions adaptable to the needs of each State, whatever its legal tradition and social, economic, cultural and geographical conditions. The Model Law is a voluntary tool, which requires careful adaptation to the specific domestic legal systems in which it is supposed to operate.

Learning more about how public institutions from around the world solved difficult governance challenges can be a powerful and inspirational tool for those engaged in improving public sector performance.

This report, prepared by the Global Centre for Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) in Parliament, intends to help legislatures harness the potential benefits of ICT for their work and establish key goals and priorities for exploiting this valuable resource. While providing evidence of the complexities of e-parliament, the report suggests ways to overcome some of the obstacles to the effective use of technology in parliamentary settings. It also evaluates the progress accomplished by parliaments during the intervening two years since 2008 in their efforts to use modern technologies to strengthen their institutional role. It further provides a methodology that can serve as a tool for parliaments to improve their performance in key areas of e-Parliament.

Supply chain sustainability is increasingly recognized as a key component of corporate responsibility. Managing the social, environmental and economic impacts of supply chains, and combating corruption make good business sense. However, supply chains consist of continuously evolving markets and relationships. To navigate this complex terrain, this guide offers a few baseline definitions and practical steps that companies can take toward integrating sustainability into procurement strategies, using the United Nations Global Compact principles as the basis to work toward supply chain sustainability, and it includes numerous examples of good practice to illustrate the steps towards sustainable supply chain management.

Trade Liberalization, Investment and Economic Integration in African Regional Economic Communities towards the African Common Market

This report reviews the progress in African regional integration processes, suggesting an option for revising the timeframe for accelerating the continental integration. Several recommendations related to accelerating integration; the need for a development-driven regional integration; the focus on export value addition and diversification in manufactured goods and services, and enhancing competition policy and attracting more foreign and domestic investment have since contributed to a decision to fast-track integration through this tripartite process. It concludes that there is urgent need to expand integration, as it currently is very low compared to Asia and Latin America in relation to international trade.

Inefficient trade procedures waste time and resources, while breeding corruption and undermining the efficiency of both control agencies and business. The United Nations Economic Commission for Europe has worked on the development and promotion of trade facilitation standards for 50 years. The Commission of the Customs Union of Belarus, Kazakhstan and the Russian Federation was created in 2010 in order to foster its Member States' economic development through establishing a common Customs territory, including the implementation of advanced trade facilitation measures. This Glossary should be an invaluable contribution to the promotion of trade facilitation in Russian-speaking countries and to the enhancement of methods of regulation in the Customs Union. It is intended to become an authoritative reference for trade facilitation terms in Russian.

This book provides a wide range of examples of the impact of anti-competitive practices and arrangements on developing country suppliers. Anti-competitive practices and market structures undercut export market opportunities and the productive capacities on which developing country businesses depend. The publication focuses on the impact of state monopolies and abuses of dominant positions in infrastructure markets, the impact of anti-competitive practices in the international distribution and retail sector, and the effect of international cartels. The role and response of the private sector is discussed, as well as the scope for enhanced international cooperation to address these issues.

The report has two key objectives - to identify “quality” foreign direct investment (FDI) and to seek an optimal allocation of scarce public funds in Africa by facilitating (largely through investment commotion agencies) the attraction of these investments. Close to 7000 firms (with 36% having foreign involvement) were interviewed in 19 Sub-Saharan African host countries. The report examines the impact of FDI on productivity, training, human capital, competition, employment, wages and trade (exports). The publication of this report is anPatterns important step forward in understanding FDI in Africa, its impact and its prospects. It is the start of a of Internationalization for Developing Country Enterprises process that should see the valuable data that it introduces analyzed and reanalyzed to tease out all the valuable insights that it contains.

The publication reviews progress in African regional integration and suggests accelerating continental integration. Several recommendations relate to accelerating integration; taking into account international trade policy and strengthening trade negotiators' capacities; and the need for development-driven regional integration. The focus, inter alia, is on export value addition, diversification in manufactured goods and services and attracting more foreign and domestic investment. The establishment of a Multi-Agency Task Force on the African Common Market and Economic Community is recommended to monitor progress in regional integration and undertake studies on strengthening economic integration in specific areas. The study provides comprehensive research and analysis on Africa's intra-trade flows and recommends their expansion.

The fifth of the series (ARIAV) has come at a time of renewed enthusiasm for shortening the period of the vision of the Abuja Treaty. Its overall objective is to provide an analytical research publication that defines frameworks for African governments, the African Union and the Regional Economic Communities, towards accelerating the establishment of the African Common Market through the speedy removal of all tariff and non-tariff barriers; obstacles to free movement of people, investments and factors of production in general across Africa, and through fast-tracking the creation of an African continental Free Trade Area.

The index measures volume changes in the production of an economy, and therefore provides a measurement that is free of influences of price changes, making it an indicator of choice for many applications. This publication revisits the original manual on Index Numbers of Industrial Production, published by the United Nations in 1950. It takes into account methodological developments in the field of index number calculation over the past decades and describes new recommended methodological standards for the compilation of index numbers of industrial production. In addition to outlining the standard methodology, it also provides practical guidance for actual steps in the index number calculation and presents recommended methods for each industry in its scope to assist countries in producing highquality short-term economic indicators that are also internationally comparable.

In the context of the ongoing fallout from the global financial crisis, income distribution is back to the centre of economic analysis and policies. This publication explores the linkages between income distribution, growth and development. It analyzes the evolution of income inequality over the last decades in different regions and groups of countries. It also examines the explanations given for the widespread rise of inequality. The report questions the thesis that rising inequality is a necessary condition for successful development. Based on a comprehensive theory of economic policy elaborated in former reports, this book argues that only inclusive development policies create the conditions for sustainable and rapid growth.

Trade Facilitation in Asia and the Pacific: An Analysis of Import and Export Processes

Foreign Direct Investment in Latin America and the Caribbean 2010

This book offers a synthesis of the results and implications from a series of business process analyses of procedures involved in importing and exporting goods to and from selected Asian countries. It aims at deepening the understanding of the nature and significance of the procedural bottlenecks associated with intra-regional trade. It provides a unique set of micro-level information on the time and cost of trade procedures, complementing the more macro-level and cross-country trade facilitation indicators already available in the literature. It will be of interest to those in charge of analyzing or improving trade transaction efficiency in developing countries.

In 2010, the Latin American and Caribbean region showed great resilience to the international financial crisis and became the world region with the fastest-growing flows of both inward and outward foreign direct investment (FDI). The upswing in FDI in the region has occurred in a context in which developing countries in general have taken on a greater share in both inward and outward FDI flows. This briefing paper is divided into five sections. The first offers a regional overview of FDI in 2010. The second examines FDI trends in Central America, Panama and the Dominican Republic. The third describes the presence China is beginning to build up as an investor in the region. Lastly, the fourth and fifth sections analyze the main foreign investments and business strategies in the telecommunications and software sectors, respectively.

Review of Maritime Transport 2011

Trade and Development Report 2011: Post-crisis Policy Challenges in the World Economy

More than 80 per cent of international trade in goods is carried by sea and an even higher percentage of developing-country trade is carried in ships. The Review of Maritime Transport, an annual publication prepared by the Division on Technology and Logistics of the UNCTAD secretariat, is an important source of information on a vital sector. It closely monitors developments affecting world seaborne trade, freight rates, ports, surface transport and logistics services, as well as trends in ship ownership and control and fleet age, tonnage supply and productivity. The review contains information on legal and regulatory developments and includes each year an in depth focus on a selected topic. In 2011, the participation of developing countries in maritime businesses is highlighted.

Reforms of financial regulations are progressing slowly and only at the national level, monetary system reform is limited. After an interlude that some considered as a return to Keynesianism, the orientation of macroeconomic policy, especially fiscal policy, is back to business as usual. This will hinder a sustained recovery of the world economy and open the door for new financial crises. Thus, the rethinking of policies and reshaping the financial and monetary system remain an urgent task. This publication makes concrete proposals on how, and in which priority areas, to advance with strengthening regulation of the financial sector and commodity markets, reform of the international monetary system, and the reorientation of fiscal policy.

Agribusiness for Africa's Prosperity

World Drug Report 2012

Many illicit drug markets have reached global dimensions and require control strategies on a comparable scale. In that context, there is a need to better understand these transnational markets and the manner in which they operate. This annual report is a contribution towards that objective. It presents comprehensive information on the illicit drug situation and provides detailed estimates and trend analysis on production, trafficking and consumption in the opium/heroin, coca/cocaine, cannabis and amphetamine-type stimulants markets.

HIV in Asia and the Pacific: Getting to Zero

While the region has seen impressive gains – including a 20% drop in new HIV infections since 2001 and a three-fold increase in access to antiretroviral therapy since 2006 – progress is threatened by an inadequate focus on key populations at higher risk of HIV infection and insufficient funding from both domestic and international sources. This report features the most up-to-date information on the regional epidemic and response, and aims to provide perspectives on the situations, opportunities and challenges currently at play – to build understanding, inform discussion and inspire ongoing commitment for actions that will halt HIV and get Asian and the Pacific “to Zero”.

Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is used to describe the voluntary efforts of companies to assume a larger responsibility for the effect of their operations on society. As such, CSR is an important complement to development efforts of governments. This publication introduces ways businesses can practically integrate CSR in general and the ten principles of the United Nations Global Compact in particular, into business strategies and practices. It further provides examples of how a number of companies from the Asian and Pacific region have implemented the principles of the Global Compact in their day to day work. Finally, it provides a brief overview of what governments can do to support and facilitate company implementation of CSR.

Publisher: International Organization for Migration (IOM) Publication Date: March 2012 ISBN: 9789290686194 Pages: 158 Price: $49.00

This publication brings together case studies from five different countries in Southeast and East Asia to examine the impact of IT-based trade facilitation measures already implemented, with a specific focus on their effect on small and medium sized-enterprises. The development of Information Technology (IT) systems to streamline the trade transaction processes has typically been partial and often uncoordinated across government agencies involved in trade control, often resulting in limited gains in trade efficiency. The publication argues however, that as big and small enterprises alike overwhelmingly rely on specialized third parties to complete trade procedures, IT-based trade facilitation measures are generally not found to have a discriminatory effect on smaller enterprises.

This report presents available evidence on public perceptions and attitudes regarding migration globally. It analyzes the way in which they are shaped, and how they can influence and be influenced by policy and the media. It suggests several ways to improve communication about migration to promote better understanding and recognition of the benefits of migration. The plublication comprises two parts: part A analyses major migration trends in 2010/2011, offering an overview of developments in policy, legislation, international cooperation and dialogue on migration, and part B reviews the evolution of the agency's approach to migration management since the end of the Cold War. It also presents a statistical overview of the organization's programmes over the last decade.

Asia-Pacific Trade and Investment Report 2011: Post-crisis Trade and Investment Opportunities for Asia and the Pacific

ECONOMIC AND SOCIAL COMMISSION FOR ASIA AND THE PACIFIC

This report identifies the challenges and opportunities for trade and investment in the Asia-Pacific region and concludes that with the right policies and strengthened regional cooperation, the region will be able to continue strong trade- and investment-led growth. With the continued stalling of the international Doha Round of negotiations, regional trade agreements remain an important approach to controlling protectionism. A fresh look at negotiations of the rules under these agreements in order to make them perform their enabling role is recommended. The report emphasizes that governments need to step up efforts to improve the environment for business and investment.

HIV/AIDS and the Security Sector in Africa

Throughout history, communicable diseases have weakened the capacity of state institutions to perform core security functions, which compelled many African countries to initiate policies aimed at addressing the impact of HIV/AIDS on the armed forces, police and prisons. These policies address: 1) the role of peacekeepers in the spread or control of HIV, 2) public health versus human rights dilemma, 3) the gender dimensions of HIV in the armed forces, and 4) the impact of HIV on the police and prisons. While this volume does not address all aspects of the impact of HIV/AIDS on the security sector, the contributors nonetheless highlight the potentials and limits of existing policies in Africa’s security sector.

Energetic and open to new technologies, young people can transform global politics and culture.

Promoting the health and productivity of the world’s older people can mitigate the challenges faced by ageing societies.

This book provides evidence of how much we have achieved in providing universal access, and weighs that against our vision for the future: zero new HIV infections, zero discrimination and zero AIDS-related deaths. This report contains scientific analysis, personal insights from world leaders and the results of extensive national and regional consultations at the front lines of the AIDS response. While perspectives differ, one simple truth emerges: we cannot break the arc of this epidemic — where five people were newly infected for every three starting treatment in 2010 — if we adopt a "business as usual" approach.

Seven Opportunities for a World of 7 Billion

Intentional homicide is serious in nature and recorded by multiple data sources (police and public health).1 As such, it is widely accepted as one of the most accurate, reliable and comparable crime indicators for2 world crime trends and patterns. Using data from the United Nations Surveys on Crime Trends and the3 4 Operations of Criminal Justice Systems (UN-CTS) and the latest "homicide statistics" dataset of the United5 Nations Office on Drugs and Crime, this publication provides a global overview of levels and trends of6 intentional homicide and its relationship with, and impact on, human development. It also examines the7 links between homicide and some forms of organized crime, including drug trafficking, as well as the use of firearms. The study describes characteristics of homicide victims and perpetrators (including from the gender perspective) as well as provides detailed data on homicide location.

P U B LI C H EA LT H/P O P U L AT I O N

Disability and the Millennium Development Goals: A Review of the MDG Process and Strategies for Inclusion of Disability Issues in Millennium Development Goal Efforts

This report provides an overview of the global manufacture, trade and use of amphetamine-type stimulants (ATS) and ecstasy, highlighting the nature of the ATS threat and the impact on society. It shows the regional trends for Asia, Oceania , Europe, Africa, North America and Central and South America and the Caribbean. It mainly focuses on countries where available data suggest that the most significant changes have occurred over the past five years. The report also highlights manufacturing methods, constraints of ATS-related data gathering, and forensic data to understand the range of products available in illicit ATS markets.

The framework of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) will expire in 2015. In the post-MDGs era, persons with disabilities and disability issues must be an integral part of the international development agenda as the global community considers what will replace the MDGs beyond 2015. This publication is a collaborative effort by United Nations agencies, disability-related organizations and NGOs, as well as advocates and experts from around the world. It provides a "roadmap" for why and how disability can and should be included in the planning, monitoring and evaluation of development-related programmes and policies. It assesses the links between disability and poverty and explores ways to integrate disability issues into current and future development efforts. This book will benefit those working in disability advocacy, programming and outreach efforts.

To prevent the diversion of precursor chemicals for use in the illicit manufacture of drugs, governments must have adequate legislation in line with the United Nations Convention against Illicit Traffic in Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances as well as effective working mechanisms and procedures for information feedback between the authorities involved in the control of precursor chemicals. The International Narcotics Control Board in its annual report examines actions taken recently and highlights both successful results and shortcomings. The 2011 precursors report of the Board presents the latest developments in global precursor chemical control.

UNAIDS commemorates 30 years of the AIDS epidemic by publishing a compilation of 30 milestones, thoughts, images, words, artworks, breakthroughs, inspirations and ideas in response.

Opiates originating in Afghanistan threaten the health and well-being of people in many regions of the world. Their illicit trade also adversely impacts governance, security, stability and development — in Afghanistan, its neighbours, the broader region and beyond. This publication covers worldwide flows of Afghan opiates, as well as trafficking in precursor chemicals used to turn opium into heroin. By providing a better understanding of the global impact of Afghan opiates, this publication can help the international community identify vulnerabilities and possible countermeasures.

This report sets benchmarks and provides forward-looking analysis of the 2015 targets set by the United Nations General Assembly in its 2011 Political Declaration on HIV/AIDS. This publication asks, “how will we get there?” and presents key data and illustrative figures covering the decade 2006-2015. An incisive narrative examines the new global targets in the Political Declaration and in the UNAIDS strategy on AIDS, and it reviews options and implications to stop the AIDS epidemic. Numerical targets are charted and their implications reviewed for each region.

The System of Environmental-Economic Accounting for Water, commonly referred to as SEEA-Water, is a conceptual framework for the organization of physical and economic information, developed with the purpose of providing an integrated conceptual framework to support water policy design and evaluation. It uses concepts, definitions and classifications coherent with those of the System of National Accounts. SEEA-Water is a subsystem of the System of Environmental-Economic Accounting (SEEA), which provides internationally agreed standards for the compilation of measures about the environment and its interactions with the economy. After a rigorous consultation process, SEEA-Water was adopted in 2007 by the United Nations Statistical Commission (UNSC). Part I of SEEA-Water has been adopted as an interim international statistical standard subject to re-evaluation when the SEEA is adopted as an international statistical standard.

The 31st edition of this annual publication compiles over 50 indicators collected from more than 20 international statistical sources and presented in one-page profiles for 216 countries or areas of the world. This issue covers various years from 2000 to 2011. For the economic indicators, in general, three years — 2000, 2005 and 2010 — are shown; for the indicators in the social and environmental categories, data for one year are presented. The topics covered include: agriculture, balance of payments, education, energy, environment, food, gender, health, industrial production, information and communication, international finance, international tourism, international trade, labour, migration, national accounts, population and prices.

This publication provides a comprehensive methodological framework for collection and compilation of international merchandise trade statistics in all countries, irrespective of the level of development of their statistical system. The conceptual framework reflects both the multipurpose nature of these statistics and concern for availability of the adequate data sources and data compilation procedures. It is intended primarily for the producers of international trade statistics, particularly the staff of national statistical offices and/or customs involved in the collection and compilation of merchandise trade statistics, but may be also useful to researchers and other users interested in better understanding of the nature of trade statistics.

These recommendations were developed to assist countries establish and strengthen information systems for water, which in turn support the design and evaluation of better water policies. In particular, these recommendations support the collection, compilation and dissemination of internationally comparable water statistics in countries, as well as the implementation of the System of Environmental-Economic Accounts for Water (SEEA-Water). They also provide the necessary information for deriving coherent and consistent indicators, enabling comparisons over time and between countries from an agreed list of data items, and consolidate the experiences and practices of countries and international organizations in water statistics. The United Nations Statistical Commission is the highest decision-making body for international statistical activities, especially the setting of statistical standards.

In the wake of the First World War, at the Peace Conference at Versailles, US President Wilson called for the creation of a League of Nations for the purpose of affording mutual guarantees of political independence and territorial integrity to great and small nations alike. For the first time, conflicts between nations were a matter of global concern. Numerous key areas — social, economic and statistics, health, labour — were dealt with either directly by the League or indirectly by its specialized agencies. The League’s lifetime (1919-1947) saw the creation of bodies that would be at the origin of the International Labour Organization, the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization, the World Health Organization and the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees. Their achievements were manifold and though some of them were "revived" as United Nations offices or specialized agencies after the Second World War, they were inherited from the League of Nations.

The Universal Declaration of Human Rights is the first international agreement setting out freedoms, rights and entitlements for all humanity to claim. It emphasizes the inextricable relationship between fundamental freedoms and social justice, and their connection with peace and security. The General Assembly of the United Nations proclaims this Universal Declaration of Human Rights as a common standard of achievement for all peoples and all nations, to the end that every individual and every organ of society, keeping this Declaration constantly in mind, shall strive by teaching and education to promote respect for these rights and freedoms and by progressive measures, national and international, to secure their universal and effective recognition and observance, both among the peoples of Member States themselves and among the peoples of territories under their jurisdiction.

Escaping Victimhood Children, Youth and Post-Conflict Peacebuilding

Edited by

This publication argues that “gender” is a fundamental battleground on which Al Qaeda, the Taliban and their types have to be defeated. Issues of regressive radicalism, literalism, militancy and terrorism can only be solved through people-centred interventions. Therefore, relevant governments and civil society should promote an alternative culture of growth, self-expression and actualization for Muslim men. To achieve sustainable counterterrorism results, Aslam recommends underlining masculinities in Muslim contexts and expanding the scope of required interventions beyond those confined to Islam(ism), the opposing sects and ideological movements of which rarely agree. This book also includes empirical data from a pilot study conducted on Pakistani Muslim masculinities.

By placing the demons within both migration and violent citizenship and in a longer historical perspective, this book succeeds in surpassing current interpretations of the 2008 violence against immigrants in the townships as just resulting from xenophobia. The authors masterfully show that the politics of statecraft – notably the African National Congress’ (ANC) language of multicultural dominance – inspired a fatal depolitisation of difference. The very coherence of this collection offers a challenging analysis of struggle over belonging and denial of difference that is of much broader relevance than South Africa alone.

It is these events and subsequent consequences for the ordering of power, population and place that this book explores. Exorcising the Demons Within makes sense of recent antioutsider violence by situating it within an extended history of South African statecraft that both produced the conditions for the attacks and has been reshaped by it. Drawing on an interdisciplinary team of expert scholars and on new research, this is the first academic text to fully theorise the events that made global headlines in 2008.

EXORCISING DEMONS

DEMONS

On 11 May 2008, residents of Alexandra Township near Johannesburg turned violently on their neighbours, launching a string of attacks that, two weeks later, left 60 dead, dozens raped and over a hundred thousand displaced. Most of those killed were from beyond South Africa’s borders, but at least a third were citizens who, for reasons of ethnicity or political affiliation, failed to protect their space in the country’s urban core. Although not the most severe political violence in South Africa’s turbulent past, the 2008 attacks reflect an important moment in the country’s post-apartheid, post-authoritarian existence: a moment when the government’s legitimacy and the post-apartheid order were called into question. This xenophobic violence made evident cracks in the cohesion of law and society while helping to redefine both.

EXORCISING

This book is critical of the policies, practices and politics of containment that continue to frame belonging in post-apartheid South Africa in an era of flexible mobility. The dominant logic of ever diminishing circles of inclusion informed by hierarchies of humanity within and between states is productive of the sort of narrow articulation of belonging that easily results in the rationalisation of difference, demonisation, xenophobia and violence such as that of May 2008 – the key event that ties together this richly crafted, well documented and empirically grounded collection of essays.

A diverse group of researchers and scholar-practitioners working in academia, non-governmental and international organizations, examine the proactive roles of girls and boys in promoting security for themselves and their families. This publication focuses on children's disproportionate suffering and their specific vulnerabilities during and after a war. It also looks into the international legal frameworks created to protect and empower children and youth in post-conflict environments, and gives examples of initiatives to help young people escape the traps of victimhood and voicelessness. As the young post-war generation will become the next leaders, parents and teachers, ensuring children and youth’s active role in post-conflict peacebuilding today could be among the most effective means of building sustainable peace tomorrow.

The United Nations at a Glance

Signed on 26 June 1945, the Charter of the United Nations is the Organization’s constitutive instrument, setting out the rights and obligations of Member States, and establishing its principal organs and procedures. An international treaty, the Charter codifies basic tenets of international relations — from the sovereign equality of States to prohibition of the use of force in any manner inconsistent with the purposes of the United Nations. The UN officially came into existence on 24 October 1945, with the ratification of the Charter by its first signatories. Since then, the UN has continued to grow in remaining true to this pledge — one all the more relevant in the face of the tremendous global transformations that, in the 21st century, are confronting humankind.

Planning for Action on Women and Peace and Security: National-level Implementation of Resolution 1325 (2000)

United Nations Peace Operations 2011: Year in Review

Peacekeeping enables the UN to assist host countries in the transition from conflict to peace. Its unique strengths include legitimacy, burden sharing and an ability to deploy and sustain troops and police from around the globe, integrating them with civilian peacekeepers to advance multidimensional mandates. The latest edition illustrates the multidimensional roles of peacekeeping operations today. It illustrates how peacekeepers are called upon to maintain peace and security, facilitate the political process, protect civilians and assist in disarmament, demobilization and reintegration of former combatants. Additionally, the missions support the organization of elections, the protection and promotion of human rights and assist in restoring the rule of law.

United Nations Global Compact Annual Review 2011

The People vs. The State: Reflections on UN Authority, US Power and the Responsibility to Protect

This annual study assesses how – and to what extent – the private sector companies that participate in the United Nations Global Compact are implementing its ten principles; taking action in support of broader UN goals and issues, and engaging with the Global Compact locally and globally. At the centre of the review are the findings from the Annual Global Compact Implementation Survey, an annual, anonymous online survey of Global Compact participants, conducted to take stock of environmental and social performance and identify trends and developments related to corporate sustainability policies and action issues.

Responsibility to Protect (R2P) aims to convert international conscience into timely and decisive collective action to rescue vulnerable communities. The choice is not whether international interventions will take place but where, when, how and under whose authority. Given the nature and victims of modern armed conflict, protection of civilians and populations at risk of mass atrocities is a core United Nations imperative. But while the UN has international authority, it lacks military power. Although its military might well have unmatched global reach, the United States acting unilaterally lacks international authority. This publication argues that progress towards good international society requires that force be harnessed to authority as the R2P moves from a universally validated principle to a routinely actionable norm.

Multilateralization of the Nuclear Fuel Cycle: A Long Road Ahead

Disarmament: A Basic Guide

International peace and security - and therefore disarmament - stand at the core of the UN mandate. This publication is designed to inform, educate and generate public understanding of the importance of multilateral action, and to rally support for it, in the field of arms limitation and disarmament. Intended primarily for the general reader, this basic guide may also be useful for the disarmament educator or trainer. It is published by the United Nations Office for Disarmament Affairs in collaboration with the NGO (nongovernmental organizations) Committee on Disarmament, Peace and Security pursuant to the purposes of the United Nations Disarmament Information Programme.

The world continues to wrestle with the dual nature of nuclear energy. The proliferation risks stemming from the spread of sensitive technologies point to the need for a multilateral approach to the nuclear fuel cycle. Taking the dangerous aspects of nuclear energy out of national hands and placing them in multilateral hands could strengthen the non-proliferation regime and provide States with secure and equitable access to the benefits of peaceful nuclear energy. This book presents two studies. The first provides a historical overview of the issue of multilateralization and discusses the present situation and future prospects. The second discusses prospects for regional approaches to the nuclear fuel cycle using Eastern and South-Eastern Asia as a case study.

The benefits and risks of UN integration for humanitarian space have been intensely debated for many years. Based on evidence collected during field visits to Afghanistan, Somalia and the Democratic Republic of the Congo, the study explored the impact of UN integration arrangements on five areas of humanitarian space: security of aid workers; humanitarian access; engagement of non-state actors; the perception of humanitarian workers, and humanitarian advocacy. The study found that UN integration had both positive and negative impacts on humanitarian operations, yet that positions across the peacekeeping, political and humanitarian fields (UN and non-UN) remain polarized.

Lately, governments, the nuclear industry and non-governmental organizations have put forward a dozen proposals regarding multilateral approaches to the nuclear fuel cycle and assurances of supply of low-enriched uranium and nuclear fuel. Of these, two Russian projects, the International Uranium Enrichment Centre and the guaranteed low-enriched uranium reserve, have actually been implemented and are functional, and the International Atomic Energy Agency's low-enriched uranium bank is in the early stages of implementation.

TO STAY DELIVER

Good practice for humanitarians in complex security environments

To Stay and Deliver: Good Practice for Humanitarians in Complex Security Environments

Providing humanitarian assistance amid conflict is a dangerous and difficult endeavour. Over the past decade, violent attacks against aid workers — resulting in killing, kidnapping and serious injury — have tripled, reaching over 100 assaults per year. From 2005 onwards, the largest numbers of security incidents on humanitarian personnel have been concentrated in a limited number of countries representing the most difficult and volatile operating environments. Even as aid workers come under increasing attack, however, they find ways to continue delivering life-saving services and providing protection to people in need. This study documents, across different types of security contexts and risk patterns, a variety of good practices and innovative strategies that enable humanitarians to maintain presence and ensure uninterrupted delivery of services.

Keeping Watch: Monitoring Technology and Innovation in UN Peace Operations

Knowledge is power. In the hands of United Nations peacekeepers, it can be a power for peace. Lacking knowledge, peacekeepers often find themselves powerless in the field, unable to protect themselves and others. This book explains how technologies can increase the range, effectiveness and accuracy of United Nations observation. It also identifies potential problems and pitfalls with modern technologies and the challenges to incorporate them into the United Nations system. It examines the few cases of technologies effectively harnessed in the field and offers creative recommendations to overcome the institutional inertia and widespread misunderstandings about how technology can complement human initiative in the quest for peace in war-torn lands.
