Over the last two decades the world has witnessed an important transformation of the concept of citizenship and social integration, increasingly recognizing that cultural and ethnic diversity need to be considered when designing and implementing social policies.

Today's patriarchal societies have their roots in antiquity, a time when matrilineal societies gradually gave way to ancient civilizations in which men were granted more and more importance and powerand women were made not only subordinate, but also gradually separated from realms of the "male." In Closing the Gap,, Allerd Stikker argues that the male/female duality we still perceive has resulted in a loss of coherence and integrity for all peopleand that only the unity and interdependence of the sexes can preserve a sustainable human society on our planet.

This volume is based on a meeting of researchers, forecasters, and users of La Niña forecasts, held at the U.S. National Center for Atmospheric Research in Boulder, Colorado. La Niña, the result of air-sea interaction, can briefly be described as the appearance of cooler than normal sea surface temperatures in the central and eastern equatorial Pacific Ocean that can affect global weather patterns. While people around the globe have become familiar with El Niño —a large scale warming of surface water that expands to cover the tropics —and its impacts, its counterpart, La Niña, is not s

Conventional wisdom holds that ageing populations are unfavourable for economic growth because of their potential impacts on labour supply, productivity, and savings. When this is coupled with the increased spending pressures because of pension requirements and health care, ageing societies are likely to face serious fiscal problems. This report addresses these concerns in the unique context of Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union where many countries are ageing rapidly without the economic resources and institutional capacity of other ageing societies in Western Europe and Japan.

The authors in this volume cover a wide range of ethical and methodological concerns through the issues they faced while researching and working in violently divided contexts. The specific demands of conducting this research in war-torn and divided societies have stimulated the contributors to analyse and critique issues of concern to all researchers, such as the contribution of research to society, the benefit of research to respondents, and issues of contributors work. These themes take on an urgency and clarity that can potentially illuminate research practice generally.
