Liberal Democracy in Crisis: Rethinking Resistance under Neoliberal Governmentality
Liberal Democracy in Crisis: Rethinking Resistance under Neoliberal Governmentality by Alen Toplišek
English | PDF,EPUB | 2018 (2019 Edition) | 221 Pages | ISBN : 3319979361 | 2.75 MB

This book rethinks resistance against neoliberalism in the context of the crisis of Western liberal democracy and the rise of new radical left parties in Europe. Drawing upon a wide range of methodological approaches in contemporary political and social theory, it explores how the aftermath of the 2008 financial crisis represents the opening of possibilities for resistance and examines the structural hurdles facing radical politics in effectively challenging neoliberalism. The author challenges the dominant conceptions of democratic politics by critically interrogating the role of liberalism in the depoliticisation of governing and the neoliberal restructuring of the democratic role of the state. The trajectory of new radical left parties in Slovenia, Greece and Spain is used to demonstrate the need to overcome the binary divide between institutional politics and resistance in radical political theory and practice.

Input-Output Models for Sustainable Industrial Systems: Implementation Using LINGO
Input-Output Models for Sustainable Industrial Systems: Implementation Using LINGO by Raymond R. Tan
English | PDF,EPUB | 2018 (2019 Edition) | 158 Pages | ISBN : 9811318727 | 13.18 MB

This book addresses the specialized topic of input-output models for sustainable industrial systems. While these models are well-established tools for economic analysis, their underlying mathematical structure is also applicable to the analysis and optimization of a wide range of systems that are characterized by linear interdependencies among their components. This means that input-output models can be used for diverse networks, such as processes within industrial plants, industrial plants in a supply chain, or departmental units within an organization.

Development and Quantification of Sustainability Indicators
Development and Quantification of Sustainability Indicators by Subramanian Senthilkannan Muthu
English | PDF,EPUB | 2018 (2019 Edition) | 95 Pages | ISBN : 9811325553 | 3.23 MB

This book highlights various methods for quantifying sustainability indicators using different indices. To date, numerous sustainability indicators encompassing either all three pillars (economic, environmental and social) or individual or joint indicators (e.g. environmental and social) have been developed and quantified. In addition to commonly developed indicators, which can be utilized for any industrial sector, sector-specific sustainability indicators are frequently used. Behind each indicator developed, there is a unique scientific model, method or assessment technique. This book explores and elaborates on such indicators, and on associated details such as the concept, development methodology, assessment technique, and applications of each indicator.

Balancing River Health and Hydropower Requirements in the Lancang River Basin
Balancing River Health and Hydropower Requirements in the Lancang River Basin by Xuezhong Yu
English | PDF | 2018 (2019 Edition) | 290 Pages | ISBN : 9811315647 | 9.27 MB

This book assesses river health in the Lancang River Basin with regard to the impacts of hydropower projects. It studies key components of the transboundary effects of Chinese dams on the Lancang River including its hydrology, sediment transport, water temperature, and fish community. It also investigates the specific impacts of hydropower on women's lives and livelihoods, and factors that influence women's participation in river health management. In closing, the lessons learned regarding environmental protection and hydropower development in the Lancang River Basin are shared, e.g. with hydropower developers and regulators in Laos.
