Abstract

Rising world demand for petroleum and natural gas makes the Caspian Sea and its resources the focus of increased international attention. This article examines the controversy over the legal condition of the Caspian Sea, both in terms of delimination questions and its status as a lake or a semi-enclosed sea. The natural resource potential of the Caspian is assessed, with a view to highlighting its hydrocarbon and fishery resources, as well as the environmental implications posed by development of industry and pipelines throughout the region. Also examined are the geopolitical priorities of the five Caspian littoral states, as well as the need to maintain the region as a zone for peaceful commercial enterprise and economic development. Toward these ends, the study concludes with an evaluation of the realistic prospects for collaboration among the Caspian states to protect the environment as evidenced by the recent negotiation of a special convention dedicated to that purpose.

Pathways to Belonging

Contemporary Research in School Belonging

Edited by Kelly-Ann Allen and Christopher Boyle

School belonging should be a priority across every facet of education. The research on school belonging for positive student outcomes has been widely accepted and findings demonstrating its role as a protective factor against mental ill health and youth suicide are too compelling to ignore. In an age where it has been argued that academic achievement is prioritised over wellbeing, the editors bring the importance of school belonging back to the fore in educational policy and planning. This book is the most comprehensive compendium of its kind on the topic of school belonging. A foreword by Professor John Hattie of The University of Melbourne sets the scene for an engaging look at how school belonging is quintessential in contemporary schooling.
