  • Humanitarianism and Challenges of Cooperationby Volker M. Heins; Kai Koddenbrock; Christine Unrau

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 54.95

    Humanitarianism as a moral concept and an organized practice has become a major factor in world society. It channels an enormous amount of resources and serves as an argument for different kinds of interference into the "internal affairs" of countries and regions. At the same time, and for these very reasons, it is an ideal testing ground for successful... more...

  • Natural Hazards, Risk and Vulnerabilityby Roanne van Voorst

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 54.95

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 54.95
