  • New Challenges to International Relations Theory and Policy

    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.

  • 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.

    "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.

  • Multiobjective Decision-Making for Solid Waste Management in a Carbon-Regulated Environment

    Both short-term and long-term planning of solid waste management (SWM) requires the inclusion of multiscale sustainability criteria such as cost- benefit-risk consideration, recycling effect, and global-warming potential (GWP). This chapter demonstrates a holistic integration of these criteria to optimize system planning in a typical SWM system using comparative multiobjective decision analyses. The GaBi software package was used to estimate the possible greenhouse gas emissions throughout the scenario-based design process. The chapter examines the GWP impact in a real-world SWM system to demonstrate that the traditional cost-effectiveness principle and cost- benefit analysis cannot permit sustainable development related to SWM. Thus, the case study in the chapter is designed to explore the potential impact to an SWM system under a global-scale, carbon-regulated environment with local- scale material/energy recycling considerations. To achieve the study goals, five management scenarios were configured and compared to demonstrate the importance of sustainability concerns in an SWM system.

  • 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.
