Throughout Europe from town halls and regional governments, through national Parliaments and ministries, to the high institutions of the European Union there runs a vigorous debate on organized crime, municipal safety and private conduct. Drug problems and what to do about them so often sit at the intersection of these debates. As for legal responses, throughout the 1990s the focus of attention has been primarily on the criminal law. New criminal offenses have been created, partly in response to influences from above (from international and European agreements) and partly in response to pressure from below (concerns of citizens at national and sub-national levels). But although criminal law certainly is important as far as the development of drug controls is concerned, it is by no means the whole story. There is a parallel history, a regulatory one, consisting of the increasing use of administrative measures, some of which are directly concerned with drugs whilst others are more general but equally applicable. These responses, together with civil law, variously function as adjuncts to criminal law, or as alternatives to it, in relation to drug trafficking at European and national levels, drug-related public nuisance as it concerns citizens at municipal level, and drug users. 302pp.N.B.Small fade mark at base of d/j spine.

Edited By Thyer,Bruce A.
This work describe the contributions of a behavioural perspective to the major issues of philosophy. Leading behavioural philosophers and psychologists have contributed chapters on: the origins of behaviourism as a philosophy of science; the basic principles of behaviourism; ontology; epistemology; values and ethics; free will, determinism and self-control; and language and verbal behaviour. A concluding chapter provides an overview of some scholarly criticisms of behavioural philosophy. Far from espousing a "black box" perspective on human cognition and philosophical reasoning, behaviourism (as derived from the works of B. F. Skinner) represents a contemporary and viable approach to conceptualizing important philosophical and psychological issues. 261pp.

Adair, John
With the rapid trend away from management to business leadership, there is a need for a new, broader understanding of leadership. This clear and authoritative guide answers the questions, 'what is strategic leadership?', 'what makes a person effective as a strategic leader?' and 'how can I develop my abilities as a leader?' The concept of leadership is relevant not only to organisational life but to all of us: everyone has to 'lead' their own life. To be a strategic life-leader means developing a vision and direction for one's life, identifying personal core values and fostering an informal team among colleagues and associates. 'Effective Strategic Leadership' is as important for unstructured careers as it is in large companies or organisations.

This volume highlights the challenges of the international protection of refugees 50 years after the adoption of the 1951 Geneva Convention relating to the Status of Refugees. Focusing on the problems faced by Switzerland in the field of international protection of refugees as well as on the specificity of its asylum law and practice, this publication addresses the refugee problem from a national, European and international perspective. The Swiss experience serves to illustrate the wider problematic of on the one hand, the tensions between security, political and humanitarian concerns encountered by refugee-receiving states, and on the other, the need to preserve an international refugee protection regime which remains an essential component of international law and relations for so long as political solutions are not brought to the root causes of refugee exodus. This reflection on the international protection of refugees is organized around four main themes. The first examines Switzerland's response in the past to mass influx, in the light of historical case studies and the evolution of Swiss asylum law and practice. The second focuses on the question of access of refugees to asylum territories and refugee status determination procedures within the framework of the 1951 Convention on the Status of Refugees and the current Swiss asylum law. The third centres on the wider protection regime currently being forged in Europe to address a broader category of refugees, including solutions for temporary and subsidiary protection. The final theme revolves around return of refugees, including those under the Dayton and recent Kosovo agreements and covers reintegration of returnees, assistance and long-term development. This work is based on papers presented at a colloquium of the Graduate Institute of the International Studies in Geneva which was organised in collaboration with the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees as a contribution to the 50th anniversaries of the UNHCR and the Geneva Convention relating to the Status of Refugees.283pp.
