This book provides a systematic collection of EU actors, EU policy and EU actions in global health. It answers key questions on governance of the EU and its policy processes. The book starts with an introduction to the EU as a global actor and continues to outline the historical development and the Treaty basis for health, including the Maastricht and Lisbon Treaties. It also discusses the Commission's global health communication and the subsequent Council Conclusions on global health. Both documents define EU values in global health and identify the future priorities for global health action in the EU. Four of the five priorities are then described from the perspective of a different country experience. The book also considers the opportunities for research and provides an overview of the political, legal and financial instruments available to the EU. It also explores the global health architecture and processes within which the EU is acting, namely at the WHO, in the different multilateral organizations, and in global public health international treaties and regulations. Finally, the book addresses the importance of policy coherence at a national level and provides critical viewpoint on the EU as a global health actor. The book will assist practitioners working in policy making and international negotiations affecting health, as well as students and researchers, to create a better understanding of the European Union, its role in global health, and the uniqueness and specificity of the EU as a global health actor. It provides an overview of how the EU can act in global health and outlines the intersections of health and other sectors, as well as the instruments available to the EU to act effectively at a global level. The collection of contributions in this form and from this health policy perspective are not yet found elsewhere on the market.

The world’s problems are indeed world problems: social and environmental crises, global trade and politics, and major epidemics are making public health a pressing global concern. From this constantly changing scenario, global health diplomacy has evolved, at the intersection of public health, international relations, law, economics, and management—a new discipline with transformative potential. Global Health Diplomacy situates this concept firmly within the human rights dialogue and provides a solid framework for understanding global health issues and their negotiation. This up-to-the-minute guide sets out defining principles and the current agenda of the field, and examines key relationships such as between trade and health diplomacy, and between global health and environmental issues. The processes of global governance are detailed as the UN, WHO, and other multinational actors work to address health inequalities among the world’s peoples. And to ensure maximum usefulness, the text includes plentiful examples, discussion questions, reading lists, and a glossary. Featured topics include: The legal basis of global health agreements and negotiations. Global public goods as a foundation for global health diplomacy. Global health: a human security perspective. Health issues and foreign policy at the UN. National strategies for global health. South-south cooperation and other new models of development. A volume of immediate utility with a potent vision for the future, Global Health Diplomacy is an essential text for public health experts and diplomats as well as schools of public health and international affairs.

This book investigates the extent to which the EU has defined and operationalised the notion of effective multilateralism. Reform has dominated the agenda of the EU in recent years with the adoption and implementation of the Lisbon Treaty. However, various international organisations have also been in reform mode in an attempt to adjust their structure to the changing polarity and counter criticisms about a lack of legitimacy, accountability and effectiveness. The EU and Effective Multilateralism examines the EU’s intention to make multilateral settings more effective, as formulated by the European Security Strategy in December 2003. Firmly grounded in new empirical research, it provides a balanced account of the fit between internal reform (the institutional reform within the EU, notably following the entry into force of the Lisbon Treaty) and external reform (the institutional reform of the international reform in which the EU operates). This book will be of much interest to students of EU politics, European security, international organisations, foreign policy and IR in general.

Following the publication of Negotiating and Navigating Global Health: Case Studies in Global Health Diplomacy Editor Ellen Rosskam and Ilona Kickbusch, this second volume of case studies will complement the first volume and extends its scope. The new book focuses on health diplomacy negotiations, in Geneva and elsewhere, that have involved WHO or that have substantial implications for the work of WHO. Each of the chapters provides a detailed account of a particular example of global health negotiation, concerning hard and soft law instruments but also addressing the full range of health issues — reaching from issues of research and development, polio eradication, NCDs and plain packaging, to the post-2015 process, the WHO reform and non-state involvement. The book therefore captures a wide-range of experiences of distinguished diplomats, academics and senior practitioners. The contributions to the book are written by negotiators and academics and thus, will provide a unique angle and a tool of reflection for a broad audience. In particular, it will be of interest not only to the academic community and students, but also to policy-makers and diplomats. The case studies will allow for learning on how negotiations work in a complex policy environment. The focus on WHO will explore how a major international organization engages in global health diplomacy and on the implications that health-related diplomacy taking place in a variety of settings has for its work. As such, the book is an important contribution to the growing field of global health diplomacy and to the debate about the role of WHO in the 21str century.

This book examines how the European Union (EU) is perceived beyond its borders in the US; the Middle East: Israel, Palestinian territories, Lebanon, Iran; Russia; China; India; Brazil and South Africa. The book also analyses the main perceptions of the EU in some key international institutions, including the World Bank; World Trade Organization, United Nations, African Union; and transnational actors, including non-Western media such as Al Jazeera. It seeks to provide a thorough analysis of the implications that these perceptions might have for the global role of the EU. By taking this approach and by providing both conceptual and empirical arguments, the volume provides an innovative perspective on the analysis of the EU as a global actor. It also strengthens a research agenda on the EU external image: an underdeveloped area of investigation in which the editors and the main contributors to this volume have played a pioneering role in the past few years. It will be of strong interest to academics and students of international politics, European studies and development studies.

The One Health concept of combined veterinary and human health continues to gain momentum, but the supporting literature is sparse. In this book, the origins of the concept are examined and practical content on methodological tools, data gathering, monitoring techniques, study designs, and mathematical models is included. Zoonotic diseases, with discussions of diseases of wildlife, farm animals, domestic pets and humans, and real-world issues such as sanitation, economics, food security and evaluating the success of vaccination programmes are covered in detail. Discussing how to put policy into practice, and with case studies throughout, this book combines research and practice in one broad-ranging volume.

Informed by contemporary theoretical debates within the discipline of International Relations, this book provides a sustained analysis of EU foreign policy. Issues covered include: how actorness is constructed, and the status, coherence, consistency and roles of the EU as an actor; how the field of trade relations forms the basis of the EU's activities; the EU in global environmental diplomacy, N-S relations and in relation to the Mediterranean and East/Central Europe; and the EU's controversial relationship to CFSP and defence. This text reveals that the EU is a multifaceted and variable actor, which cannot be fitted into any orthodox template of a nation state.

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2010 im Fachbereich Informatik - Internet, neue Technologien, Universität Hamburg, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Diese Ausarbeitung befasst sich mit dem Thema Computational Soical Network Analysis. Ziel ist es, dem Leser einen Einblick in diese Thematik zu verschaffen. Dabei werden Hintergründe, anwendbare Methoden und Tools vorgestellt, die hierbei Verwendung finden. Zunächst wird dabei näher auf den Hintergrund, also warum dieses Gebiet als Forschungsgegenstand so interessant ist, eingegangen. Anschließend werden verschiedene Aspekte, die man im Rahmen der Analyse sozialer Netzwerke untersuchen kann benannt. In diesem Zusammenhang werden auch zwei verschiedene Kategorien zur formalen Analyse benannt. Zur Verdeutlichung wird die Verwendung dieser am Ende des Kapitels auch noch einmal anhand eines Praxisbeispiels gezeigt. Das nächste Kapitel befasst sich mit der Fragstellung, wie Schlüsselfiguren in Netzwerken ermittelt werden können und was für Rollen diese spielen. Dabei werden auch die verschiedenen Arten von Schlüsselfiguren benannt. Eine weitere zentrale Rolle in der Analyse sozialer Netzwerke nehmen Gruppen ein. Die Bedeutung von Gruppen und wie man sie ermitteln kann wird im nächsten Kapitel erläutert. Aufbauend auf den Gruppen sollen Interaktionen innerhalb von Netzwerken untersucht werden. Hierfür werden zunächst die nötigen Werkzeuge, wie die SCAN oder DISSECT Methode vorgestellt und anschließend die Einsatzgebiete anhand von Beispielen verdeutlicht. Im 7. Kapitel wird eine eLearning Plattform näher betrachtet. Hierbei werden zunächst die Eigenschaften und Besonderheiten von eLearning Plattformen beschrieben und anschießend anhand eines Praxisbeispiels verschiedene Methoden zur Analyse sozialer Netzwerke angewendet.
