Book Description :

Mainstream economists tell us that developing countries will replicate the economic achievements of the rich countries if they implement the correct “free-market”policies. But scholars and activists Toussaint and Millet demonstrate that this is patently false. Drawing on a wealth of detailed evidence, they explain how developed economies have systematically and deliberately exploited the less-developed economies by forcing them into unequal trade and political relationships. Integral to this arrangement are the international economic institutions ostensibly created to safeguard the stability of the global economy—the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and the World Bank—and the imposition of massive foreign debt on poor countries. The authors explain in simple language, and ample use of graphics, the multiple contours of this exploitative system, its history, and how it continues to function in the present day. Ultimately, Toussaint and Millet advocate cancellation of all foreign debt for developing countries and provide arguments from a number of perspectives—legal, economic, moral. Presented in an accessible and easily-referenced question and answer format, Debt, the IMF, and the World Bank is an essential tool for the global justice movement.

Book Description :

La notion d'homme a connu plusieurs changements au fil du temps. Le plus récent est sans doute celui qui s'inscrit dans la tradition de la Déconstruction et par le biais duquel la conception humaniste de l'Anthropos est mise en question. Avec le posthumanisme nous franchissons le seuil d'une pensée fondée sur des binarismes, des frontières et des essences, vers une réévaluation critique de l'humanisme qui investit typiquement l'ontologie humaine d'un statut spécifique et spécial. Les études réunies dans ce volume examinent dans la littérature, le cinéma et d'autres arts, des poétiques de problématisation de l'humain à la lumière des grands enjeux technologiques et écologiques, des mises en récit de nouvelles modalités de partage du monde entre humains et non-humains, ainsi que des figurations d'une anthropomorphie alternative. Et ce, tout en signalant des voies mais aussi des impasses de la pensée postanthropocentrique.

Bill Gates Pay Your Fair Share of Taxes Like We Do

Bill Gates  Pay Your Fair Share of Taxes   Like We Do  Book

Book Description :

Bill Gates and other wealthy individuals around the world do pay taxes--but usually at rates far below what most taxpayers pay. As Warren Buffet says, his secretary pays a higher tax rate than he does on his multi-million dollar income. And most big corporations have mastered the art of paying next to nothing in taxes. Many experts and financial journalists dismiss the idea that higher taxes for rich people and large corporations would make a difference to government revenues. Even Bill Gates's personal fortune wouldn't make a dent in the huge US government deficit. But Harvard-trained economist and tax expert Brigitte Alepin has a different point of view. Relying on her in-depth knowledge of tax systems in Canada, the US, France, and elsewhere, Alepin provides a behind-the-scenes explanation of what has happened to create a massive gap in government revenues. Over the last twenty years, large corporations, the super-rich, and private foundations have found many ways and means to avoid being taxed. This black hole in government revenues-found in virtually every country-accounts for trillions of dollars in lost revenue every year. As Alepin demonstrates using data drawn from leading international organizations, those missing trillions would go a long way towards allowing the world's governments to balance their books. Collecting taxes from big corporations and the super-rich cannot be done by any one country alone. But with governments of all political stripes facing this common problem, there are concrete steps they can take together to address it. Ensuring that wealthy individuals and corporations pay their fair share in taxes would not result in ruinously high rates. Instead, it would mean that the super-rich and corporations would pay their fair share of taxes at rates that would reflect their true ability to pay. Brigitte Alepin shows how a fair tax system for Bill Gates and for the world's richest individuals and corporations can be the answer to the financial crisis the world faces today.

Book Description :

About the publication The African Charter on the Rights and Welfare of the Child (African Children’s Rights Charter) is the continental instrument for protecting and promoting the rights and welfare of the Child. The Children’s Charter, adopted in 1990, forms part of the salient features of the African human rights system, complementing the parent human rights instrument, the African Charter on Human and Peoples Rights (African Charter). To give meaning and effect to its provisions, the African Children’s Rights Charter in article 34 establishes an organ namely the African Committee of Experts on the Rights and Welfare of the Child (African Children’s Rights Committee or Committee) to monitor implementation by member states, to advocate for children’s rights and to hold state parties accountable to their obligations as state parties. Working collaboratively on the continent’s human rights system, the organs comprising the African human rights, namely, the African Commission on Human and Peoples’ Rights (Commission), the African Court on Human and Peoples’ Rights (Court) and the African Children’s Rights Committee, have undertaken to publish the African Human Rights Yearbook. This is an instrumental platform to highlight the mandate of the organs, to foster collaboration and to illustrate Africa’s commitment to uphold human rights. It is an important initiative that highlights various aspects of the norms and institutions relevant for human rights on the continent. This is the third volume of the Yearbook. It includes a focus on the 2019 theme of the African Union Refugees, Returnees and Internally Displaced Persons: Towards Durable Solutions to Forced Displacement in Africa. The African Children’s Committee has at the same time undertaken and published a study on Children on the Move (2019), focusing not only on refugees, detainees and internally displaced persons, but also drawing inspiration from the protective mandate of the African Children’s Rights Charter to draw the continent’s attention to the protection and promotion of the rights and welfare of children who are on the move. The focus on themes of the African Union enables a critical analysis of the extent of their implementation and relevance to the human rights discourse in the continent. Furthermore, the special focus of the Yearbook on various groups of people in vulnerable situation, such as children and women, signals the need to enhance their protection and prioritise their plight. The role of academic writing in advancement of human rights deserves due notice and appreciation by human rights implementing bodies. Peer reviewed academic research provides credible and independent knowledge about human rights in a specific country or region, as well as in various contexts and thematic areas. Academia plays a major role in the development of a human rights resource base that enables sustainable enhancement of human rights protection and promotion. The African Human Rights Yearbook is an excellent example of the important role played by academia in strengthening human rights protection and promotion in Africa. The breadth of knowledge enveloped in the Yearbook is evidenced by the long list of highly established scholars that informed it. By questioning and analysing the institutional architecture and the work of the three human rights bodies, the Yearbook has an invaluable role of ameliorating their functioning as a collective system. For this reason, it is critical that the Committee, Commission and Court take note of the various recommendations stemming from the research and apply them when relevant, for better protection and promotion of human rights in Africa. Mrs. Goitseone Nanikie Nkwe Chairperson of the African Committee of Experts on the Rights and Welfare of the Child. La Charte africaine des droits et du bien-être de l’enfant (Charte des droits de l’enfant) est l’instrument central en matière de protection et de promotion des droits et du bien-être de l’enfant en Afrique. Adoptée en 1990, elle fait partie intégrante des instruments clés du système africain des droits de l’homme et complète, à cet effet, la Charte africaine des droits de l’homme et des peuples, le traité fondateur du système africain des droits de l’homme. Pour mieux protéger les droits des enfants, le Comité africain d’experts sur les droits et le bien-être de l’enfant (Comité) fut créé à travers l’article 34 de la Charte des droits de l’enfant. Cet organe a pour mission de surveiller et de contrôler l’application et la mise en oeuvre de la Charte. Il veille que les Etats respectent et rendent compte de la mise en oeuvre des obligations qui leur incombent en vertu de la Charte. Travaillant en étroite collaboration dans le cadre de la protection des droits de l’homme en Afrique, la Commission africaine des droits de l’homme et des peuples, la Cour africaine des droits de l’homme et des peuples et le Comité africain d’experts sur les droits et le bien-être de l’enfant ont mis en place l’Annuaire africain des droits de l’homme. Cette initiative sert d’opportunité pour promouvoir les missions dévolues auxdits organes, raffermir les liens de collaboration entre eux et rappeler l’engagement pris par l’Afrique afin de protéger les droits humains. L’Annuaire est une initiative importante car elle met en exergue les différents aspects normatifs et institutionnels des droits de l’homme en Afrique. Ce troisième volume de l’Annuaire est dédié au thème que l’Union africaine a retenu pour l’année 2019; Année des réfugiés, des rapatriés et des personnes déplacées: Vers des solutions durables aux déplacements forcés en Afrique. En parallèle, le Comité a entrepris et publié une cartographie des enfants en mouvement en Afrique (2019) axée sur les réfugiés, les détenus et les déplacés internes. Tirant ses fondements du mandat de protection que confère la Charte des droits de l’enfant, la cartographie attire l’attention du continent sur la protection

Book Description :

Dissecting the new theoretical buzzword of the “Anthropocene” The Earth has entered a new epoch: the Anthropocene. What we are facing is not only an environmental crisis, but a geological revolution of human origin. In two centuries, our planet has tipped into a state unknown for millions of years. How did we get to this point? Refuting the convenient view of a “human species” that upset the Earth system, unaware of what it was doing, this book proposes the first critical history of the Anthropocene, shaking up many accepted ideas: about our supposedly recent “environmental awareness,” about previous challenges to industrialism, about the manufacture of ignorance and consumerism, about so-called energy transitions, as well as about the role of the military in environmental destruction. In a dialogue between science and history, The Shock of the Anthropocene dissects a new theoretical buzzword and explores paths for living and acting politically in this rapidly developing geological epoch.

Book Description :

The present ecological mutation has organized the whole political landscape for the last thirty years. This could explain the deadly cocktail of exploding inequalities, massive deregulation, and conversion of the dream of globalization into a nightmare for most people. What holds these three phenomena together is the conviction, shared by some powerful people, that the ecological threat is real and that the only way for them to survive is to abandon any pretense at sharing a common future with the rest of the world. Hence their flight offshore and their massive investment in climate change denial. The Left has been slow to turn its attention to this new situation. It is still organized along an axis that goes from investment in local values to the hope of globalization and just at the time when, everywhere, people dissatisfied with the ideal of modernity are turning back to the protection of national or even ethnic borders. This is why it is urgent to shift sideways and to define politics as what leads toward the Earth and not toward the global or the national. Belonging to a territory is the phenomenon most in need of rethinking and careful redescription; learning new ways to inhabit the Earth is our biggest challenge. Bringing us down to earth is the task of politics today.

Language : En, Es, Fr & De

Book Description :

How capitalism first promoted fossil fuels with the rise of steam power The more we know about the catastrophic implications of climate change, the more fossil fuels we burn. How did we end up in this mess? In this masterful new history, Andreas Malm claims it all began in Britain with the rise of steam power. But why did manufacturers turn from traditional sources of power, notably water mills, to an engine fired by coal? Contrary to established views, steam offered neither cheaper nor more abundant energy—but rather superior control of subordinate labour. Animated by fossil fuels, capital could concentrate production at the most profitable sites and during the most convenient hours, as it continues to do today. Sweeping from nineteenth-century Manchester to the emissions explosion in China, from the original triumph of coal to the stalled shift to renewables, this study hones in on the burning heart of capital and demonstrates, in unprecedented depth, that turning down the heat will mean a radical overthrow of the current economic order.

Language : En, Es, Fr & De

Book Description :

In this pathbreaking book, Pierre Charbonnier opens up a new intellectual terrain: an environmental history of political ideas. His aim is not to locate the seeds of ecological thought in the history of political ideas as others have done, but rather to show that all political ideas, whether or not they endorse ecological ideals, are informed by a certain conception of our relationship to the Earth and to our environment. The fundamental political categories of modernity were founded on the idea that we could improve on nature, that we could exert a decisive victory over its excesses and claim unlimited access to earthly resources. In this way, modern thinkers imagined a political society of free individuals, equal and prosperous, alongside the development of industry geared towards progress and liberated from the Earth’s shackles. Yet this pact between democracy and growth has now been called into question by climate change and the environmental crisis. It is therefore our duty today to rethink political emancipation, bearing in mind that this can no longer draw on the prospect of infinite growth promised by industrial capitalism. Ecology must draw on the power harnessed by nineteenth-century socialism to respond to the massive impact of industrialization, but it must also rethink the imperative to offer protection to society by taking account of the solidarity of social groups and their conditions in a world transformed by climate change. This timely and original work of social and political theory will be of interest to a wide readership in politics, sociology, environmental studies and the social sciences and humanities generally.

Book Description :

Many of us view the world of science as a firm bastion of knowledge, with each new discovery and further illumination adding to an unshakable foundation of natural truths. Weak Knowledge aims to rattle our faith, not in core certainties of scientific findings but in their strength as accessible resources. The authors show how, throughout history, many bodies of research have become precarious due to a host of factors. These factors have included cultural or social disinterest, feeble empirical evidence or theoretical justifications, and a lack of practical applications in a given field's findings. This book brings together cases from a range of historical periods and disciplines, ranging from personal medicine to climatology, to illuminate the specific forms, functions, and dynamics of so-called "weak" bodies of knowledge.

On peut dire � juste titre que l'aide alimentaire a sauv� des millions de vies. Elle est en effet souvent le dernier espoir des personnes vuln�rables. Et cependant, elle est vivement critiqu�e en tant qu'initiative ob�issant aux donateurs, qui cr�e une "" d�pendance "" des b�n�ficiaires, fragilise l'agriculture et le commerce locaux sur lesquels s'appuie la s�curit� alimentaire durable. Les donn�es �conomiques relatives � ces questions sont �tonnamment t�nues, mails elle confirment que le moment choisi et le ciblage de l'aide alimentaire sont cruciaux pour atteindre les objectifs de la s�curit� alimentaire imm�diate tout en r�duisant le plus possible les risques d'effets n�gatifs. Les r�formes du syst�me international d'aide alimentaire sont n�cessaires mais elles doivent �tre entreprises avec prudence car des vies humaines sont en jeu.
