If Scotland Goes

by Financial Times

The FT’s latest ebook is a guide to what would happen if Scotland were to vote for independence in a referendum in September 2014. While the outcome is far from certain, a yes vote would have a profound effect not only on the 5.3m people of Scotland, but also on the economic future and fundamental character of the UK. We introduce Alex Salmond, the Scottish first minister and driving force behind the independence campaign. We examine the difficult economic issues, led by an independent Scotland’s choice of currency, and the potential benefits independence would bring for example in a separate immigration policy. We include observations from an expatriate Scot that give a flavour of the personal and social backdrop to the constitutional choice. This collection of articles - a mixture of...

Negotiating Bioethics: The Governance of UNESCO’s Bioethics Programme (Genetics and Society)

by Adèle Langlois

The sequencing of the entire human genome has opened up unprecedented possibilities for healthcare, but also ethical and social dilemmas about how these can be achieved, particularly in developing countries. UNESCO’s Bioethics Programme was established to address such issues in 1993. Since then, it has adopted three declarations on human genetics and bioethics (1997, 2003 and 2005), set up numerous training programmes around the world and debated the need for an international convention on human reproductive cloning. Negotiating Bioethics presents Langlois' research on the negotiation and implementation of the three declarations and the human cloning debate, based on fieldwork carried out in Kenya, South Africa, France and the UK, among policy-makers, geneticists, ethicists, civil societ...

Multiculturalism and Conflict Reconciliation in the Asia-Pacific: Migration, Language and Politics

by K. Shimizu and W. Bradley

This book is open access under a CC BY license.Japan has recently promoted a number of initiatives that can be termed an opening to the world and the Asia-Pacific in particular. These have origins in Japan's globalization generally and multicultural policies more specifically. The chapters in this book are grouped in three parts—theories, language, and migration—and they explicate details of multiculturalism in the Asia-Pacific, largely focused on Japan, but including cases that extend beyond Japan as well. Alternative understandings based on analyzing conflicts and moving towards reconciliation underscore the urgency of viewing multiculturalism in Japan and the Asia-Pacific from perspectives that are firmly based in the region. Themes such as immigration, identity, foreign language ed...

How Generations Remember: Conflicting Histories and Shared Memories in Post-War Bosnia and Herzegovina (Global Diversities)

by Monika Palmberger

This book is open access under a CC BY 4.0 license.This book provides a profound insight into post-war Mostar, and the memories of three generations of this Bosnian-Herzegovinian city. Drawing on several years of ethnographic fieldwork, it offers a vivid account of how personal and collective memories are utterly intertwined, and how memories across the generations are reimagined and ‘rewritten’ following great socio-political change. Focusing on both Bosniak-dominated East Mostar and Croat-dominated West Mostar, it demonstrates that, even in this ethno-nationally divided city with its two divergent national historiographies, generation-specific experiences are crucial in how people ascribe meaning to past events. It argues that the dramatic and often brutal transformations that Bosnia...
