  • Cyber Venues and Levels of Analysis

    Cyberspace is widely acknowledged as a fundamental fact of daily life in today's world. Until recently, its political impact was thought to be a matter of low politics--background conditions and routine processes and decisions. Now, however, experts have begun to recognize its effect on high politics-- national security, core institutions, and critical decision processes. In this book, Nazli Choucri investigates the implications of this new cyberpolitical reality for international relations theory, policy, and practice. The ubiquity, fluidity, and anonymity of cyberspace have already challenged such concepts as leverage and influence, national security and diplomacy, and borders and boundaries in the traditionally state-centric arena of international relations. Choucri grapples with fundamental questions of how we can take explicit account of cyberspace in the analysis of world politics and how we can integrate the traditional international system with its cyber venues. After establishing the theoretical and empirical terrain, Choucri examines modes of cyber conflict and cyber cooperation in international relations; the potential for the gradual convergence of cyberspace and sustainability, in both substantive and policy terms; and the emergent synergy of cyberspace and international efforts toward sustainable development. Choucri's discussion is theoretically driven and empirically grounded, drawing on recent data and analyzing the dynamics of cyberpolitics at individual, state, international, and global levels.

  • Engineering Ethics and Public Policy

    "In SOCIAL, ETHICAL, AND POLICY IMPLICATIONS OF ENGINEERING, engineers, faculty, and students will find an informative guide to the professional, societal, and ethical responsibilities that face practicing engineers today. Through an integrated approach to the theory of engineering ethics and practical real-world issues, this comprehensive book offers readers an in- depth analysis of technology's current social role. Drawing on readings and case studies first published in IEEE Technology and Society Magazine, this easy-to-read text will develop readers' understanding of the important issues surrounding ""macroethical"" public policy debates, including discussions of sustainable development, public health, risk and product liability, and telecommunications. These cases and readings also provide an opportunity to apply the theory in real-world situations. SOCIAL, ETHICAL, AND POLICY IMPLICATIONS OF ENGINEERING will help students meet the new accreditation criteria for engineering adopted by the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET). In addition, contemporary issues presented in this far- reaching book will allow students and practicing engineers to gain greater insight into how social and ethical concerns shape contributions to the engineering field.

  • Destiny of Humankind from an Astrobiology Point of View

    Astrobiology is a multidisciplinary approach used to study the origin, evolution, distribution, and future of life on Earth and in the cosmos and is based on the assumption that life is a universal planetary phenomenon if the right environmental conditions prevail. Such an approach helps to transform our Weltbild from a geocentric to a more Universe-oriented one. This chapter focuses on migration as a central attribute of life within the astrobiological context. Migration has been observed for terrestrial life throughout its more than 4 billion years (Ga) of history, across all domains of life. It appears, however, that migration is not confined to the planetary realm. It is argued that microbial life-forms can be transported by meteorites between the planets of our solar system. In addition, humans have now developed the technology to leave their home planet and to explore other bodies in our solar system. This evolutionary step is still in its infancy, with the Moon being the only celestial body visited so far, yet it is demonstrated that technology exists for more ambitious projects, such as a visit to the planet Mars. The issue of whether human spaceflight has the potential to promote peaceful cooperation on a global scale is discussed briefly. Finally, forced migration due to environmental degradation is considered, with a special emphasis on hypothetical scenarios of a future exodus from the Earth as a consequence of anthropogenic collapse of the planet's life-support systems. The conclusion is drawn that sustainable development on Terra should be achievable using only a tiny fraction of the efforts required for interplanetary mass transportation.

  • Introduction

    Society is increasingly conscious of the importance of solid waste management (SWM) in the context of sustainable development. This chapter emphasizes the essence of sustainable development as part of the package of tools for making decisions about SWM. It provides a common framework for sustainable development and relevant basic principles that support such ideas. The guidelines describe possible actions to establish a framework for a wide range of SWM activities across diverse spatial and temporal scales. Sustainable development concurrently addresses both spatial and temporal characteristics that must be clearly defined from local, regional, and global viewpoints for current and future generations. In the context of SWM, the concept of sustainability applies to the whole SWM industry sectors, process technologies, and individual process plants.

  • What Kind of System of Science (and Technology) Is Needed to Support the Quest for Sustainable Development?

    This chapter concentrates on the role of science and technology in humankind's efforts to change course toward sustainable development, in the context of deep transformations intensifying as globalization interweaves and clashes with ecological interdependence. Nine fundamental ("nodal") issues, which should be addressed by a scientific and technological system better able to support good global stewardship, are discussed in terms of their strategic implications for global sustainability. These include the basic unit of analysis for Earth system science, integration of research, the criteria of truth, inclusion of qualitative variables, dealing with uncertainty, incorporation of other knowledges, interparadigmatic dialogues, science-policy interface, and stakeholder involvement. The adaptive management approach, often proposed as a preferred strategy for the use of science and technology for global sustainability, is discussed. Finally, a resulting glimpse of some of the strategic traits of the scientific and technological system for global sustainability is presented, including the possibility of scientific holistic forms of understanding of the Earth system.
