«Нетрадиційні» іммігранти у Києві: сім років потому

Sep 01, 2009
На основі опитування вихідців з віддалених країн Азії та Африки, що проживають у Києві, яких автори під час дослідження 2001 р. назвали «нетрадиційними» іммігрантами, досліджується місце імміграції як явища у сучасному українському суспільстві, її подальші перспективи, ступінь інтеграції прибулих в українське суспільство. Окрема увага приділяється порівнянню останніх емпіричних даних з одержаними під час аналогічного дослідження у 2001–2002 рр.

Бурное развитие процессов глобализации во второй половине XX – начале XXI века при одновременном возрастании культурного разнообразия мира превратило нетерпимость в одну из основных угроз для всего человечества и сделало задачу утверждения толерантности чрезвычайно актуальной в практическом отношении. Проблема эта стала более многогранной и сложной и для теоретического осмысления.

Sep 01, 2009
Calderón took an important step forward for Mexico’s national security interest by collaborating with the United States and sharing the responsibility of tackling organized crime.

Emerging Powers: India, Brazil and South Africa (IBSA) and the Future of South-South Cooperation

Aug 07, 2009
Due to the current trends of political and economic restructuring, South-South cooperation is expected to play an increasingly important role in the post-recession world. India, Brazil, and South Africa (IBSA) established a dialogue forum to increase multilateral collaboration on a number of issues, especially those relating to development. The Brazil Institute hosted a half-day conference on IBSA, revealing two key themes: current accomplishments in enhancing global governance, economic relations, and foreign policy strategies; and the potential to improve regional security in Africa, Asia, and Latin America.

Climate Change and Biofuels

Aug 07, 2009
Sugarcane ethanol is not the villain that it is often made out to be and neither is the sugarcane industry. In Brazil, the sugarcane industry has set out to convince the Brazilian government to adopt a carbon cap and trade system domestically, independently of international negotiations. It is in their interest to reinsert the positive environmental externalities accrued from sugarcane ethanol use and production into the market system. It makes economic and environmental sense and it might spur a value-added product. The next best thing after organic sugar is carbon neutral sugarcane ethanol.

The Rosenberg Archive: A Historical Timeline

Jul 07, 2009
The Rosenberg Archive: A Historical Timeline is a timeline of events with links to relevant documents from The Vassiliev Notebooks. The release of notes taken in the KGB archives by Alexander Vassiliev makes it possible for the first time to draw a nearly complete picture of the recruitment, operations and exposure of the Rosenberg espionage ring. As the Rosenberg Archive makes clear, the Rosenberg case is probably the most well-documented major espionage case of the 20th century.

Strengthening U.S.-Mexico Cooperation against Drug Trafficking: What Can State Attorney Generals Do?

Jun 16, 2009
I would like to offer a bit of context on the current situation related to drug trafficking and organized crime in Mexico; the efforts that are going on between our two countries to address this; and specifically how the attorneys general might be able to play a leading role in these efforts, which have profound implications for our home communities as well as for the country next door.

Innovation in Brazil: Public Policies and Business Strategies

Jun 07, 2009
Three key concepts have emerged from a series of five seminars, jointly hosted by the Brazil Institute and Prospectiva Consultoria of São Paulo, on the promotion of innovation in Brazil. First, innovation must be broadly defined, extending beyond applied research activities. Secondly, it is imperative that public policies and private strategies complement and interact with each other in order to create an environment conducive to generating innovative ideas. Finally, because innovation takes place against the backdrop of increasingly internationalized markets and competitive differentials, it no longer makes sense to think of innovation as an exclusively domestic venture. In this publication, Ricardo Sennes, keeping these three themes in mind, describes and analyzes the public policies and business strategies that promote innovation in Brazil.

Inovação no Brasil: Políticas Públicas e Estratégias Empresariais

Jun 07, 2009
De uma série de seminários co-patrocinados pelo Brazil Institute e Prospectiva Consultoria emergiram três conceitos-chaves sobre a busca de inovação no Brasil. Antes de tudo, a inovação deve ser definida amplamente, estendendo além das atividades de pesquisa aplicada. Segundo, é imperativo que políticas públicas e estratégias privadas sejam complementárias e interajam em maneiras conducentes para à geração de novas idéias. Finalmente, por realizar-se no contexto de mercados cada vez mais internacionais e competitivos, hoje em dia não é lógico pensar na inovação como um empreendimento exclusivamente doméstico. Nesta publicação, Ricardo Sennes, considerando estes temas, descreve e analisa as políticas públicas e as estratégias privadas que promovem a inovação no Brasil.
