On Thin Ice explores the shifting relationship between the Inuit and the modern state in the North American Arctic, and it pays tribute to pioneering IR theorist Ken Waltz's elucidation of the "Three Images," with the addition of a new "Fourth Image" to describe a tribal level of analysis that remains salient in not only the Arctic, but in other conflict zones where tribal peoples retain many attributes of their indigenous sovereignty.

Land, Indigenous Peoples and Conflict presents an original comparative study of indigenous land and property rights worldwide. The book explores how the ongoing constitutional, legal and political integration of indigenous peoples into contemporary society has impacted on indigenous institutions and structures for managing land and property. This book details some of the common problems experienced by indigenous peoples throughout the world, providing lessons and insights from conflict resolution that may find application in other conflicts including inter-state and civil and sectarian conflicts. An interdisciplinary group of contributors present specific case material from indigenous land conflicts from the South Pacific, Australasia, South East Asia, Africa, North and South America, and northern Eurasia. These regional cases discuss issues such as modernization, the evolution of systems and institutions regulating land use, access and management, and the resolution of indigenous land conflicts, drawing out common problems and solutions. The lessons learnt from the book will be of value to students, researchers, legal professionals and policy makers with an interest in land and property rights worldwide.

The world is experiencing a watershed phase in the second decade of the 21st century, marked by a geopolitical and economic power shift from the West to Euro-Asian powers. The present period exposes various geopolitical and geostrategic challenges, which prove more difficult to tackle than those in the 20th century. These challenges take the form of political confrontation, internal and internationally-political armed conflicts, conflict over raw-material resources in civil war torn countries across Sub-Saharan Africa, Latin America, the Middle East, and also in newly explored strategic regions like the Arctic. The world’s rapidly-expanding population is facing cyclical fluctuations of food prices as the result of climate changes, economic conflicts, the rise of religious fundamentalism, and also fragmentation of the political map of the world. This latter aspect brings along not only the rise of secessionist movements, violating territorial integrity as the core principle of the international community, but also a redefinition of one of the key characteristics of a sovereign state, namely international recognition. Kosovo, South Ossetia and South Sudan are showcase examples of this emerging trend. Will be the 21st century defined by rivalries between national (super) powers, and not by the supremacy of collective universitas or overlapping sovereignties, replacing sovereign states as expected by the New Middle Age theorists? Which will be the dominant power in a multipolar world – the rapidly-weakening United States, on the one hand, or an ever more confident China, aspiring to regain the status of the world’s strongest economy? This volume provides expert insights and answers from American, Europan, Asian and African specialists.

This edited collection formalises Critical Border Studies (CBS) as a distinctive approach within the interdisciplinary border studies literature. Although CBS represents a heterogeneous assemblage of thought, the hallmark of the approach is a basic dissatisfaction with the ‘Line in the Sand’ metaphor as an unexamined starting point for the study of borders. A headline feature of each contribution gathered here is a concerted effort to decentre the border. By ‘decentring’ we mean an effort to problematise the border not as taken-for-granted entity, but precisely as a site of investigation. On this view, the border is not something that straightforwardly presents itself in an unmediated way. It is never simply ‘present’, nor fully established, nor obviously accessible. Rather, it is manifold and in a constant state of becoming. Empirically, contributors examine the changing nature of the border in a range of cases, including: the Arctic Circle; German-Dutch borderlands; the India-Pakistan region; and the Mediterranean Sea. Theoretically, chapters draw on a range of critical thinkers in support of a new paradigm for border research. The volume will be of particular interest to border studies scholars in anthropology, human geography, international relations, and political science. Critical Border Studies was published as a special issue of Geopolitics.

Der Wandel des Weltklimas bedroht uns als globale Katastrophe. Doch gerade dort, wo er am schnellsten voranschreitet, stellen sich Menschen bereits darauf ein – und profitieren sogar von einer neuen Lebenswirklichkeit, die bis vor Kurzem unvorstellbar war. Wo Bewohner zuletzt nur zwischen Robben- und Rentierjagd einerseits und teuren Importwaren andererseits die Wahl hatten, ernten sie plötzlich Kartoffeln, züchten Schafe oder gründen Firmen und setzen auf Arbeit und Reisende in neuen Nationalparks. Der preisgekrönte Reporter und Bestsellerautor Klaus Scherer reist von Grönland aus nach Osten – durch das urwüchsige Island, über die Bergketten Norwegens und Schwedens, entlang der finnischen Seen und des Weißen Meeres, bis zu den Außenposten Franz-Joseph-Land im Norden und Anadyr im fernen russischen Osten. Überall findet er Menschen, die ihm erstaunliche Geschichten erzählen. Von ihrem Leben zwischen Tradition und Zeitenwende, vom Wandel ihrer Welt – von der Arktis im Aufbruch.

Der Band setzt sich mit den Bedingungen und Möglichkeiten internationalen oder globalen Regierens in einer sozialen Umwelt (Weltgesellschaft) unter drei Perspektiven auseinander: der Perspektive von Theorien globaler Ordnung, der Perspektive spezifischer Formen globaler Ordnungsbildung und der Perspektive die Normativität globaler Ordnung. Die Beiträge des Bandes besetzen Schnittstellen in einer Reihe von Diskussionen, die in den Internationalen Beziehungen zu Ordnung und Ordnungsbildung in der internationalen Politik, zum Regieren jenseits des Nationalstaates, sowie zur Stellung internationaler Politik in der Weltgesellschaft geführt werden.
