Over the last few centuries, the concern for global climate changes has significantly grown and brought about many changes in the behaviors of people as well and their responses to the changing world. Global warming has always been considered to be a very controversial issue since then and until now. Scientists could not agree on the origins of the said phenomenon; whether it is human-induced or a natural cyclic pattern of the earth's system. Nonetheless, beyond all the arguments, most agree...
According to Joseph S. Nye, leadership is a "relationship of power" (2008, 25). Unlike an executive of a firm, who is only answerable to their shareholders, a president of a democracy such as the United States is answerable to a wider range of stakeholders. They have to work with the opponent party and the congress to wade through any decision-making process. Although they do are able to exercise their veto rights to block legislations, the legislations they introduce are not...
Peace and war are two concepts generally bound together. We can rarely address one of these issues without addressing the other and the understanding of one of those two concepts increases the understanding of the other. This explains principally the choice of this topic: Ethics and War in a course entitled Peace and Culture. Peace is defined by the Oxford dictionary (2010) as: "a state or a period in which there are no war or war has ended". For many, the word peace is merely the...
In addition to being a cheap way to generate electricity, nuclear power is one of the promising solutions for the treatment of many diseases. More than that, nuclear energy is used in many industries to reach higher levels of efficiency, and in many security systems to detect terrorists and maintain peace in the world (Wolfson, 1995). After being discovered early in the 20th century, and ameliorated by the fathers of nuclear physics such as Ernest Rutherford in the 1930s, nuclear power was...

"Victory means achieving the strategic goal and not necessarily territory. I maintain that we also have to part with the concept of a land battle. We have to talk about the integrated battle and about the appropriate force activating it. Victory is a matter of consciousness. Air power effects the adversary's consciousness significantly." Commander Dan Halutz Israeli Air Force (IAF), 2001 1....

Strategy for a new partnership with the countries of the EU and Latin America included a number of different aspects: the deepening of the political dialogue, expanding trade cooperation, support for the...
Globalisation is the process of integration which is international and arises from the mixture of products, ideas, views and some other aspects of culture. Neo Realism and Neo Marxism are the different approaches that have different theories, rules and regulation which can be used by different geological countries to accept the different cultures and the technologies to achieve the globalisation. Neo Realism uses the concept of self-interest and that is the reason it is considered as realistic...
Demographic trends have long played an important role in shaping world history and relations among states. For this reason, states have provided different degrees of attention to international migration policies. The strategies implemented have changed at different history stages, according to the social, political, economic and cultural costs or benefits migration flows could entail. Consequently, on the one hand, migration policy construction is based on the perception that society has in the...
For many years, the rationale behind the international development assistance was that the prosperous, developed world has an obligation to provide some of its resources to the poor, developing countries. Indeed, this notion still exists in terms of absolute amounts of assistance. The majority of financing is derived from a group of rich, industrialized countries which apart from that are also responsible in shaping the existing norms and concepts in development assistance. Specifically, the...
