by Serena Cosgrove (Author), Benjamin Curtis (Author)
Understanding Global Poverty introduces students to the study and analysis of poverty, helping them to understand why it is pervasive across human societies, and how it can be reduced through proven policy solutions. Using the capabilities and human development approach, the book foregrounds the human aspects of poverty, keeping the voices, experiences and needs of the world’s poor in the centre of the analysis.
Drawing on decades of teaching, research and fieldwork, this interdisciplinary volume is unique in its rigorous application of the multiple disciplines of anthropology, sociology, political science, public health and economics to the phenomenon of global poverty. Starting with definitions and measurement, the book goes on to explore causes of poverty and policy responses, aiming to give a realistic account of what poverty reduction programmes actually look like. Finally, the book draws together the ethics of why we should work to reduce poverty and what actions readers themselves can take to reduce poverty.
This book is an accessible and engaging introduction to the key issues surrounding poverty, with key questions, case studies, discussion questions and further reading suggestions to support learning. Perfect as an introductory textbook for postgraduates and upper level undergraduates, Understanding Global Poverty will also be a valuable resource to policy makers and development practitioners looking for a comprehensive guide to the theoretical frameworks of poverty through the lens of human development.

Basel IV: The Next Generation of Risk Weighted Assets by Martin Neisen, Stefan Roth

In reaction to the financial market crisis that started in 2007, the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision substantially revised its existing framework for regulation, supervision and risk management in the banking sector. This revision was introduced with the so-called Basel III framework in December 2010. It essentially comprises a strengthening of the quality of a banks’ own funds, as well as new requirements with regard to the amount of required capital. Furthermore, new ratios were introduced in order to limit the leverage employed by banks as well as new liquidity ratios.
Since 2012 the Basel Committee has increasingly pursued a revision of the calculation methods for risk-weighted assets. In addition, a large number of new requirements have been developed. This package of new standards from the Basel Committee, which is unofficially called “Basel IV”, is now the most comprehensive package of modifications in the history of banking supervision. It is only a matter of time until the innovations of the Basel IV package are transferred into binding EU law. The banking industry will face major challenges in implementing these new rules.
In the editor’s volume “Basel IV – The Next Generation of Risk Weighted Asset” Martin Neisen and Stefan R�th present the current edition of the Basel reform proposals. The aim is to convince the reader that we are facing a new framework called “Basel IV” and not just a fine adjustment of the existing Basel III regulations. Moreover, the innovations of the Basel IV package are explained in a clear, comprehensible and practical manner. With the aid of a high-profile team of experts, the complexity of the topic is reduced and important support is offered.

Gender, Care and Migration in East Asia (Series in Asian Labor and Welfare Policies) by Reiko Ogawa

English | 15 Jan. 2018 | ISBN: 9811070245 | 222 Pages | PDF (True) | 1.69 MB

This collection provides a comparative analysis of care arrangements in relation to issues of gender and transnational migration, social policy and labour migration in East Asia. Bridging the key topics of migration and gendered cared work through cross country comparisons, it examines how care work and welfare arrangements have been shaped by national and global forces against the backdrop of changing gender relationships, the rise of female labour force participation, low fertility rates and population aging in East Asia. It particularly addresses the ‘feminization of migration’ which is a salient feature of migration in Asia today as more women from developing countries undertake domestic work and care work in Japan, Taiwan, South Korea and Hong Kong. Addressing the issue of care in relation to employment, care and migration regimes in East Asia and the interaction among welfare regimes, labour markets and work-care balance, this collection provides an up-to-date assessment of gendered transnational migration in the region and sheds light on local and transnational policies and practices which aim to improve the welfare of families and migrant workers.

Given the breadth of research topics in this field, the range of topics addressed in these papers is correspondingly broad. These include the study of theoretical issues related to the design of interaction protocols and marketplaces; the design and analysis of automated trading strategies used by individual agents; and the deployment of such strategies, in times as part of an entry to the trading agent competition.
