" Management and leadership: Insight for Effective Practice " by Dag Forssell introduces a new understanding of purposeful behavior and shows how to apply it to a wide range of leadership problems.

Recent acts of terrorism and the pro-democracy unrest in the Middle East remind us how important it is to understand the relationship between violence, peace and democracy. In a challenging and insightful essay, Amartya Sen explores ideas around "organised violence" (war, genocide and terrorism) and violence against the individual.

During this Workshop the use of participatory approaches was analysed in eight aquaculture case studies from different countries in Asia and one from Africa. The main conclusion was that there are no "absolutes" in participation and a wide range of different degrees and forms of participation may be manifested in the development process. Participatory approaches proved to be particularly helpful in improving understanding of the role of aquaculture in rural livelihoods (as opposed to focusing purely on aquaculture as a technical activity) and in understanding the attitudes and perceptions of t
