Brexit Reframed: English Nationalism, Euroscepticism and the Anglosphere

The Anglosphere was one of the surprise winners of the 2016 referendum campaign. As an explicitly stated concept it appeared early on in the campaign but soon faded from view. But where it did play a part in the campaign was less as a unitary concept but more in its constituent parts: sometimes as an example to emulate and at other times as another layer of global interference to reject. Most importantly, it was an important element of a... Read more

A Difficult Neighbourhood Essays on Russia and East-Central Europe since World War II By Dr John Besemeres

Through a series of essays on key events in recent years in Russia, the western ex-republics of the USSR and the countries of the one-time Warsaw Pact, John Besemeres seeks to illuminate the domestic politics of the most important states, as well as Moscow’s relations with all of them. At the outset, he takes some backward glances at the violent suppression of national life in the ‘bloodlands’ of Europe during World War II by the Stalinist and... Read more

Geographical indications: EU policy at home and abroad

The European U nion (EU) has been the principal driver of policy on geographical indications (GIs). Classified as a form of “intellectual property”, GIs have been contentious, creating considerable difficulties in international trade negotiations. This paper reviews how GI policy for foodstuffs is implemented within the EU and the key features the EU seeks in its trade treaties. The limited data available on the operation of the EU GI scheme... Read more

Peer Review of Agency Decision- Making

This work focuses on an increasingly common phenomenon in transnational governance, whereby the decisions of a national regulatory agency are subject to review by committees of international peers. In the EU, such peer review has become a formal requirement of decision-making by regulatory agencies, while it also occurs within international organisations and transnational regulatory networks. I propose a framework for understanding the possible... Read more

DisCERNing Science: Bringing the Collider Experience to Australia

Buried deep under the border between Switzerland and France, CERN’s Large Hadron Collider is the work of 10,000 men and women from across the globe, united in their quest to uncover the fundamental building blocks of our universe. The Collider exhibition invites visitors to ‘step inside the world’s greatest experiment’. But what is actually going on in the Large Hadron Collider, and what could these experiments ultimately tell us? This... Read more

Visually Mediated Presentation of Self

Seated side by side, the “born digital” Generation Z’s devices endlessly connect. Thumbs tapping incessantly, how frequent/effective is their face-to-face communication? Michikayan and Suaráez- Orozco (2016) argue that “adolescents and young adults use social media for self-presentation and self- disclosure” (Michikayan and Suaráez-Orozco, 2016, p.114). The ubiquitous selfi es, and subsequent postings thereof, suggest that this self-presentation... Read more

Global validation of Live Fuel Moisture Content (LFMC) products from satellite MODIS

Fire ignition and p ro pagat i on depend on Live Fuel Moisture Content (LFMC). Fuels with high LFMC take longer to ignite and water acts as a heat sink, slowing down fi re spread and intensity. Fire management tools require comprehensive spatial and temporal LFMC coverage that limits field sampling to validate remote sensing estimates. High temporal remote sensing, like MODIS, captures daily changes in LFMC. This presentation compares LFMC... Read more
