The Syrian Crisis: Effects on the Regional and ...

This book analyses the Syrian crisis from an international relations perspective. Developing into a proxy war, the Syrian crisis has been a battleground for regional dominance. It has also created an opportunity for new states to emerge in the world affairs scene. For example, Russia, which since the fall of the Soviet Union has retreated from world affairs, has reasserted itself by taking a leading role in the Syrian crisis. The Syrian crisis has had an important impact on interregional as well as international relations. It has also been a catalyst that reshaped the many interstate relations and allowed countries such as Russia, Iran, Turkey and China to play an increasingly important role in international affairs. While the crisis led to an Iranian Russian rapprochement and to more cooperation between Russia and Saudi Arabia, the crisis drove states that have opposing views of the crisis, Turkey, Iran and Russia, to forge an alliance. China on the other hand, a country focused on its ambitious Belt and Road Initiative is trying to walk a fine line between the Arab Gulf and Iran. This book looks at the tools, actors, and structures that have emerged out of this conflict. The conflict is distinguished by a rise in extremism, an unprecedented use of violent non-state actors, propaganda and by a sectarian narrative which will have an effect on the region for the years to come. The only light at the end of the tunnel are the local councils that can create a foundation to stabilise Syria. This book would be a valuable read for scholars as well as students of the Middle East in general and the Syrian crisis in particular.

This thesis investigates Sino-Japanese relations and the post-Cold War security order in East Asia. In particular, it asks whether a security regime' now exists in the region, by exploring three distinctive approaches to the possibility of structural change Waltz and neorealism, Wendt and social constructivism, and Buzan and the English school. While not ignoring the impact of shifts in the balance of power on security practices, I also investigate ideational variables that is the kinds of values, norms and institutions that are shared by the members of the East Asian RSC. I go on to ask why they are shared, how their identities and interests evolve over time and how these changes influence securitisation and desecuritisation practices. By examining these variables through societal, economic and military-political sectors, and locating them at domestic, regional, interregional and global levels, I conclude that, together with Southeast Asia, Northeast Asia has formed a single East Asian security regime'.

Gabor Holch presents an analysis of one of the latest developments in interregional relations, relations between the EU and East Asia. In spite of their historical ties, interaction between the two regions have been restricted to little more than trade and development projects between certain European nations and their former Asian colonies. The essay deals with the role the European Union can play in the East Asian region. Traditionally, most attention is devoted to the multilateral-intergovernmental relations which were established to provide a regulatory framework for the economic relations and political dialogue between the two regions. The high-level dialogue that arose between politicians of the two regions during the past 20-odd years, however, does not meet the standards of the period following the Cold War. The essay presents theoretical and empirical material to suggest that the aspects of the East Asia-EU interregional process linking the civil societies of the two regions make a significant contribution to the eventual strengthening of the process in the future.

The Asia-Europe Meeting (ASEM) is one of the earliest forums that put substance into the idea of cooperation between several regional organizations. Among the three core regions in the world: Europe, North America and East Asia, interregional arrangements have been developed in various forms. ASEM emerged in 1996, with an aim to strengthen the missing link in the triadic interregional relationship. ASEM s success in initiating dialogue and cooperation between Asia and EU in economic, political and social dimensions, reflected in a plethora of meetings, conferences, seminars and activities, has created its own challenges and expectations. The success of ASEM depends on both functional and cognitive changes in both regions. ASEM progress has been made in economic cooperation. In contrast, political and security dialogues have confirmed the different positions of members, though the Seoul meeting (2000), opened the potential for interregional political cooperation. Asymmetric progress between the two parties in regional integration shows that cognitive change cannot take place overnight. Therefore, for ASEM to flourish, both interregional and intraregional changes are required.

Analysis of Sectoral Water Demands and Optimal ...

This study aims to investigate optimal water allocations and possible benefit gains from water trade and to identify respective efficient water prices. As South Africa is one of the many countries in the world experiencing water shortages, this research focuses on an extremely water scarce region in the north east of the country, the Middle Olifants sub-basin. The research area is characterized by inelastic water supply, increasing competition between users for scarce water resources and a poor water demand management, leading to an imbalance of water supply and demand. The South African government tries to overcome the problem and to increase social welfare by developing an integrated water resources management and improving water use efficiencies. This requires knowledge on current water demands and water values, price elasticities of water demand, possible impacts of different market allocation mechanisms as well as necessary economic instruments and institutional and political conditions.Accordingly, this study seeks to estimate water demands of the two production sectors irrigating agriculture and mining. Primary data on quantities and expenditures of production factors and information on yields are used to model water demands. Water demand in the mining sector is estimated with econometric methods using time series data. A seemingly unrelated regression (SUR) procedure is applied to estimate cost functions for the five mines analyzed and water price elasticities and water demand functions are calculated. Calculated water own price elasticities vary from -0.77 to -0.95 and together with cross price elasticities they show, that there is potential to influence water use patterns. Using the estimated cost functions, water demands can be derived by varying the water price holding all other inputs and output constant.In the agricultural sector water price/quantity schedules are simulated with an optimization model in GAMS, maximizing farm profits with varying water prices. Demand functions are obtained by fitting regression equations and point water price elasticities are calculated. At current water prices of 0.07 Rand/m3 elasticities are with around -0.2 far below unity implying that, in the agricultural sector rather institutional measurements than water pricing must be applied as a solution to water scarcity.The determined inverse water demand functions of the two sectors together with water supply figures represent the basic elements in the water allocation model, where benefits from water use are maximized. Three different scenarios are compared under two political settings. The first setting allows water use to remain with current quantities, and to exceed its sustainable use, whereas the second setting considers basic human as well as ecological needs to be given priority, which decreases available water supply for mines and farmers. The three scenarios modeled include (1) the status quo situation, (2) intraregional trade and (3) interregional trade. In the status quo situation water demands are fixed to current consumption levels and according benefits from water use are determined. In the second scenario, where trade between agriculture and mining is only allowed within catchments but not within the whole study area, new water use quantities with new equilibrium prices arise. By allocating water from low-value uses to high-value uses benefits are maximized and efficiencies of water use are improved. In the third scenario trade is allowed between all catchments in the study area, leading to one equilibrium price in the whole region of 0.084 and 1.819 respectively depending on water supply levels, dictated by the respective political condition. Compared to the second scenario where only intraregional trade is allowed, benefits from water use are further increasing through reallocation of water to the optimal allocation levels. Model results give necessary insights to sectoral water demands and economic aspects in the study area, and they can be of support in the decision-making of appropriate policies.

US Hegemony
21,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

With the end of the 'East-West' conflict in 1990, an entirely new constellation seemed to emerge for the first time in the history of mankind. This was perceived by the power elite in the USA as a useful challenge to lend its - until then territorially restricted - hegemony a global dimension. From the perspective of the US elites (Francis Fukuyama), a period of indefinite American control over the rest of the world, in which there would be no more scope for potential rivals to emerge, would characterize the end of history. But some years later, the USA had to accept that the dual hegemony it had built up together with the Soviet Union was fundamental to the continued existence of American hegemony. Its inability to sustain a global hegemony revealed itself in the severe setbacks it suffered in the three wars waged in Iraq, Afghanistan and against the so-called international terrorists. Undeterred by the USA's imminent isolation, influential US experts insisted that US policies were still in line with the US' general perception of its role in the world: firstly to work for the good of the world and, secondly, to exercise its military might even when the rest of the world opposed it. Ignored for a long time by these very experts were the emergence of the interregional Asian triangle (China, India, Russia), Europe's reorientation and, in consequence, the USA's relegation as a hegemonic power.
