Bachelorarbeit aus dem Jahr 2015 im Fachbereich Umweltwissenschaften, Note: 1,3, Albert-Ludwigs-Universität Freiburg (Institute for Environmental and Social sciences and Geography), Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Die Arbeit stellt zunächst das Konzept des Land Sharing vor, welches die Vereinbarkeit von Landwirtschaft und Naturschutz auf derselben Fläche für möglich hält. Bildlich wird es als Mosaik aus unterschiedlich intensiv genutzten Flächen und natürlichen Habitaten dargestellt. Dieses soll durch kleinbäuerliche Landwirtschaft und agrarökologische Anbaumethoden erreicht werden, was zu Ernährungssouveränität (lokal produzierte, qualitativ, quanitativ und kulturell adäquate und selbstbestimmte Ernährung) führt. Die peruanische Region Madre de Dios wird auf Ansätze und Akteure hin untersucht, die für oder gegen eine Entwicklung zugunsten des Land Sharing stehen. Aus der Perspektive der Politischen Ökologie werden dafür lokale Konflikte um den Umgang mit der Natur und der Art der Landwirtschaft durch lokal und global agierende Akteure analysiert. Dabei werden die lokalen Ressourcenkonflikte um Gold, Holz und Land in einen globalen Kontext gestellt. Das Ende stellt den Versuch einer Prognose der lokalen Entwicklungen dar, und auch die Bedingungen, die für eine Land Sharing zugewandte Entwicklung benötigen würde.

This book offers an alternative framework for macroeconomic policy in Malaysia, derived from the universal principles of social justice espoused in the objectives of the Shariah. It attempts to holistically analyze issues related to public finance, which has been criticized for lack of transparency and justice in wealth distribution. This book explores these criticisms and discusses the principles of Islamic finance that may be applied to macroeconomic policymaking to create a better economy overall. It presents a case for a flat tax system, to make the economy more resilient to shocks, and financing methods that limit interest-rate-based debt contracts and allow greater risk sharing among the market participants on a broad scale. Using both qualitative and quantitative methods, this book models the Malaysian economy based on policies that apply the fundamental Islamic finance principle of risk sharing to demonstrate its benefits in spurring growth, promoting distributive justice, rendering the economy more stable, strengthening the potency of monetary policy, enhancing fiscal governance, and improving financial inclusion. The book will be of interest to students, policymakers, financial institutions, researchers, ministries of finance, central banks, securities commissions, and anyone interested in alternative economic paradigms. Azura Othman is Chief Executive Officer of the Chartered Institute of Islamic Finance Professionals (CIIF) and an Independent Non-Executive Director of Bank Muamalat Malaysia Berhad. Norhanim Mat Sari is a faculty member at the International Centre for Education in Islamic Finance (INCEIF), where she obtained her PhD in Islamic Finance. Syed Othman Alhabshi is Deputy President Academic of INCEIF. He has written and edited a total of 12 books and numerous journal articles on various topics related to Islam, economics, and banking. Abbas Mirakhor is First Holder of the INCEIF Chair of Islamic Finance. He formerly served as Executive Director and Dean of the Executive Board of the International Monetary Fund (IMF).
This book provides an elaboration and evaluation of the dominant conceptions of genetic counseling as they are accounted for in three different models: the teaching model; the psychotherapeutic model; and the responsibility model. The elaboration of these models involves an identification of the larger traditions, visions and theories of communication that underwrite them; the evaluation entails an assessment of each models theses and ultimately a comparison of their adequacy in response to two important concerns in genetic counseling: the contested values of non-directiveness and the recognition of differences across perspectives, with special focus on how religious and spiritual beliefs of patients are coordinated with the networks of meaning in genetics. Several insights are made explicit in this project through the work of Robert Brandom. Brandoms deontic scorekeeping model demonstrates how dialogue is at the root of grasping a conceptual content. Against this backdrop, professional communications such as genetic counseling can be seen as late developments in linguistic practices that have structural challenges. Brandoms model reminds us that the professional needs the clients understanding to grasp conceptual content in a particular context. Joseph B. Fanning is Assistant Professor of Medicine in the Center for Biomedical Ethics and Society at Vanderbilt University Medical Center. He serves as the Director of the Clinical Ethics Consultation Service and works with patients, families and clinicians on ethical concerns that arise in health care.

This book offers a phenomenologically-inspired approach to sharing stories via poetic inquiry, a research approach that is rapidly gaining popularity within psychology and the wider social sciences. Owton begins by framing how poetry can appeal to all of the senses, how it can offer readers a shared experience of the world and why poetry should be used as a research approach. Chapters explore various aspects of poetic inquiry including poetry as data, turning data into poetry, poetry as literature review and poetry as reflective writing. The final chapters consider how one might draw on characterising traits to judge poetic inquiry, and how poetry might resonate with audiences to effect wider dissemination of research. This interdisciplinary exploration will be of interest to scholars in psychology, sociology, social work, and literature, as well as to medical and sports practitioners. Helen Owton is a chartered psychologist and Lecturer in Sport and Fitness and Associate Lecturer in Social Psychology at The Open University. She has published numerous papers employing creative methodologies, specifically poetry and art, and won the Citation for Excellence award from the Qualitative Methods of Psychology section of the British Psychological Society.
This book discusses secularization, arguing that it may be more complex and significant than is generally recognized. Using a number of online exploration methods, the author provides insights into how religion may be changing, and how information technology might be energized in this process. Working from the premise that the relationship between science and religion is complex, the author demonstrates that while science has contradicted some specific religious beliefs, science itself may have been facilitated by beliefs formed many centuries ago. Science assists engineers in the development of powerful new technologies, and asserts that the universe is based on a set of fundamental principles that can be understood by humans through the assistance of mathematics. The challenging ideas discussed will benefit readers through sharing a variety of Internet-based research methods and cultural discoveries. The book provides a balance between quantitative methods, illustrated by 24 tables of statistics, and qualitative methods, illustrated by 30 screenshots of computer-generated virtual worlds. Analysis interweaves with description, creating a sense of involvement in the experience of exploring online realities at the same time as radical insights are shared.
