In 2006 the European Union concluded an S & T agreement with the government of the Republic of South Korea. Thanks to innovation, South Korea has grown to become the eleventh largest economy in a very short time and it aims to become the world's seventh power in science and technology by 2025. South Korea is the first Asian country to have concluded a Free Trade Agreement with the EU. The EU is South Korea's second trading partner and its biggest source of foreign direct investment. Continuing cooperation on S & T will therefore create many more opportunities for mutual beneficial growth. The main recommendations of this report are to move from a short-term approach to a more ambitious approach based on a long-term vision and clear roadmaps that rely on reciprocal measures and the mutual opening of programmes. The two sides should intensify policy dialogue to include the full spectrum of Korean and European actors necessary for the development of priority domains, and encourage the involvement of industry so as to reap the full benefit of the Free Trade Agreement, based on participation in test-beds and the development of standards in emerging technologies.

South Korea's phenomenal rise has been studied extensively by political scientists and economists both in terms of its impact on democratisation and as a role model for economic development. Yet little attention has been devoted to exploring the nexus between economic development and foreign policy. In South Korea's Rise, Uk Heo and Terence Roehrig propose a new theoretical framework to illustrate how an increase in a country's economic prosperity can bring about change to its foreign policy, prompting greater involvement in the international system, the transition to democracy, an expanded set of interests and increased tools to pursue its foreign policy goals. As a rising middle power, analysis of South Korea's foreign policy is crucial to our understanding of the power structure and future relations in East Asia. This is essential reading for all students and scholars with an interest in Asia, foreign policy and global economics.

Self-Help Group (SHG) microcredit is emerging as a springboard of developmental finance for Income Generating Activities (IGAs) in rural areas of India, serving the cause of the landless, small, and marginal households. SHG peer pressure is the primary driver of impressive repayment performance. Present field research in India reveals that homogeneity of SHG members and freedom of participation in SHG deliberations are primarily responsible for strengthening collective action. Specifically, the savings and loan per capita, satisfactory performance of organisation, awareness of SHG linkage, the family size, and age-induced responsibility were found to strongly influence the economic performance of SHGs. These are the key drivers of sustainability of SHGs for their welfare. Using empirical evidence, Saikumar C. Bharamappanavara demonstrates the emergence of prime factors determining the performance of SHGs in India by examining their organisational behaviour and recommends appropriate policies for social cloning.

Als griechischer Finanzminister löste Varoufakis eine der spektakulärsten und kontroversesten Auseinandersetzungen der jüngsten politischen Geschichte aus, als er versuchte, die Beziehung seines Landes mit der EU neu zu verhandeln. Trotz der massenhaften Unterstützung seitens der griechischen Bevölkerung und der bestechend einfachen Logik seiner Argumente – dass die gigantischen Kredite und die damit verbundene Sparpolitik, die seinem bankrotten Land aufgezwungen wurden, eine zerstörerische Wirkung haben – hatte Varoufakis nur in einem Erfolg: Europas politisches und mediales Establishment in Rage zu versetzen. Aber die wahre Geschichte der damaligen Geschehnisse ist beinahe unbekannt, weil so vieles in der EU hinter verschlossenen Türen stattfindet. In diesem couragierten Bericht deckt Varoufakis alles auf und erzählt die ganze Geschichte von waghalsiger Politik, von Heuchelei, Betrug und Verrat, die das Establishment in den Grundfesten erschüttern wird. Dieses Buch ist ein Weckruf, die europäische Demokratie zu erneuern, bevor es zu spät ist.
