Managing Institutional Complexity – Regime Interplay and Global Environmental Change

2011 | Action IS0802

Institutional interaction and complexity are crucial to environmental governance and are quickly becoming dominant themes in the international relations and environmental politics literatures. This book examines international institutional interplay and its consequences, focusing on two important issues: how states and other actors can manage institutional interaction to improve synergy and avoid disruption; and what forces drive the emergence and evolution of institutional complexes, sets of institutions that cogovern particular issue areas.

The book, a product of the Institutional Dimensions of Global Environmental Change research project (IDGEC), offers both theoretical and empirical perspectives. Chapters range from analytical overviews to case studies of institutional interaction, interplay management, and regime complexes in areas including climate change, fisheries management, and conservation of biodiversity. Contributors discuss such issues as the complicated management of fragmented multilateral institutions addressing climate change; the possible “chilling effect” on environmental standards from existing commitments; governance niches in Arctic resource protection; the relationships among treaties on conservation and use of plant genetic resources; causal factors in cross-case variation of regime prevalence; and the difficult relationship between the World Trade Organization and multilateral environmental agreements. The book offers a broad overview of research on interplay management and institutional complexes that provides important insights across the field of global environmental governance.

Texture Analysis for Magnetic Resonance Imaging

2006 | Action B21

The aim of this book is to introduce and explain both the concepts of texture analysis in general and specifically in medical imaging. MRI is the particular focus and the range of established and possible clinical applications in that modality is dealt with in detail.

IET Journals Special Issue "Biometric Recognition"

2009 | Action 2101

This Special Issue which is associated with COST 2101 reports on a range of challenges and advances in certain aspects of biometric recognition. The papers are highly informative, describing some key issues and new developments with respect to different classes of biometrics.
