The nonprofit sector and civil society are emerging in many nations all over the world, with NGOs of various kinds (associations, agencies, foundations, social enterprises, and volunteer programs) proliferating rapidly. Academic scholarship is emerging or expanding globally even faster than the underlying nonprofit sector itself. A new label for this interdisciplinary field is Voluntaristics, which refers to Nonprofit Sector and Voluntary Action Research, including studies of the kinds of groups noted above but also individual volunteering, both formal and informal.

The books of the Series focus on all aspects of Voluntaristics as an international and interdisciplinary field and as an emerging academic discipline. Included are chapters on topics such as the nonprofit sector, voluntary sector, third sector, civil society (sector), social economy, solidarity economy, social enterprise, social entrepreneurship, social investment, solidarity, philanthropy, giving, grants economy, foundations, volunteering (both formal and informal), civic engagement, community engagement, engagement, citizen participation, participation, nonprofit, not-for-profit, nonprofit organizations (NPOs), nongovernmental organizations (NGOs), voluntary associations, associations, sodalities, self-help groups, mutual aid groups, support groups, interest groups, pressure groups, cooperatives, nonprofit agencies, civil liberties, democracy, democratization, social movements, social protest, and mobilization, among other topics. The Series includes English translations of scholarly works or collections of papers originally written in a language that is not English, aiming at bringing these important non-English materials available to English-speaking readers.

Another unique feature of the book series is that the umbrella/infrastructure organization, ICSERA, of which Series Co-Editor David Horton Smith is the founder and CEO/President, has sponsored the Book Series. Prof. Chao Guo of the University of Pennsylvania and Senior Vice-President of ICSERA is the Co-Editor of the Series. ICSERA (www.icsera.org) refers to the International Council of Voluntarism, Civil Society, and Social Economy Researcher Associations, a nonprofit research organization based in the USA.
In 2015 the United Nations adopted a set of seventeen goals “to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure prosperity for all”, with specific targets for each goal to be achieved by 2030. These are the Sustainable Development Goals [SDGs] of the United Nations, or "Transforming our World: the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development". The UN calls on governments, the private sector, individuals and civil society bodies to join together to achieve these goals.
This volume groups international organizations by the seventeen UN Sustainable Development Goals, indicating which organizations are – or could be – concerned with which SDGs. It can also be used as an index to descriptions in Volume 1. Each organization is listed with its complete address.
Providing both an international organizations and research bibliography, Volume 4 cites over 46,000 publications and information resources supplied by international organizations, and provides nearly 18,000 research citations under 40 subject headings. This volume also includes a research bibliography on international organizations and transnational associations.
Global Action Networks allows readers to locate organizations by subjects or by fields of activity and specialization.

Le Code annoté de la Cour pénale internationale est une collection dans laquelle, en fonction du nombre de décisions rendues par la Cour dans l’avenir, un nouveau volume sera publié chaque année ou tous les deux ans. Le Code propose une sélection des extraits les plus pertinents des décisions publiques rendues par la Cour. Les extraits proposés ont été sélectionnés sur la base des critères suivants :
1) extraits qui clarifient un point de droit, interprètent l’une des dispositions statutaires de la Cour… ;
2) extraits qui montrent comment une règle spécifique est concrètement appliquée par la Cour ;
3) extraits pertinents du point de vue de l’évolution de la justice internationale, des droits de l’homme, du droit international humanitaire…
Les extraits sont proposés dans leur version française officielle, chaque fois qu’elle est disponible ou dans leur version anglaise originale. Dans tous les cas, un résumé en français identifie de façon claire l’apport de l’extrait par rapport aux critères de sélection. Les extraits sont classifiés par rapport à la disposition statutaire (article du Statut, règle du Règlement de procédure et de preuve, norme du Règlement de la Cour) à laquelle ils se rapportent. Un numéro d’identification rapide facilite le renvoi aux extraits des autres décisions sélectionnés dans le présent volume.
La présente collection de Codes annotés est avant tout conçue comme un outil à l’usage des praticiens du droit pénal international et des universitaires, qui, grâce au numéro d’identification rapide et à l’index thématique, y trouveront le moyen d’identifier immédiatement les extraits les plus pertinents de la jurisprudence de la Cour sur chaque sujet.
