Empty Institutions In Global Environmental Politics

Presentation by Radoslav S. Dimitrov
Monday, November 19
1pm - SSC 5220

Why are some institutions without policymaking powers? This study documents the efforts by governments to create empty international institutions whose mandates deprive them of any capacity for policy formulation or policy implementation. Examples include the United Nations Forum on Forests, the Copenhagen Accord on Climate Change, and the UN Commission on Sustainable Development. Research is based on participation in twenty-one rounds of environmental negotiations and interviews with diplomats, policymakers and observers.

This presentation introduces the concept of empty institutions, provides evidence from three empirical cases, and discusses their policy ramifications and theoretical implications. Empty institutions serve two political purposes. First, they are political tools for hiding failure at negotiations, by creating the public  impression of policy progress. Second, empty institutions legitimize collective inaction and block international policy. Contrary to theories that assume institutions facilitate governance, these institutions are ‘decoys’ that pre-empt governance.

Such structures fill the institutional space in a given issue area and neutralize calls for genuine policy agreements.

Presented by the Department Of Political Science

The Importance of Physical Activity in Supporting Student Success

Abstract:
We know that the brain is important for learning. Your brain helps you pay attention, helps you solve problems, helps you remember, and helps you imagine and create. As it turns out, your body is equally important for learning. My talk will discuss the important role that physical activity plays in children’s brain health, body health, and academic success. I will share research showing that students who are more physically active also perform better in school, and how incorporating physical activity into classroom learning can improve student success.

My talk will end by discussing Ontario’s Daily Physical Activity (DPA) policy, which was implemented in 2005 and requires school boards to ensure that all elementary students have a minimum of 20mins of physical activity each school day during instructional time. Despite this policy however, research shows that most classrooms remain sedentary. We will discuss some of the challenges to implementing this policy and allow audience members to weigh in on the issue. I will then present some of my research on potential ways to optimize implementing physical activity into classrooms (e.g., type of physical activity, duration, frequency).

Dr. Barbara Fenesi is an Assistant Professor in the Faculty of Education at the University of Western Ontario, and nominated Tier II Canada Research Chair in the Science of Learning. Her passion is rooted in understanding how the entire human organism (both the brain and the body) plays a role in student success. She draws on work from fields of educational and cognitive psychology, neuroscience and kinesiology to identify intervention strategies that can promote cognitive function and mental health in diverse student populations.

THE CITY OF TORONTO'S CLIMATE CHANGE ADAPTATION STRATEGY TO MITIGATE URBAN FLOODING

 

Michael D'Andrea, M.E.Sc., P.Eng.

Chief Engineer and Executive Director, Engineering & Construction Services

City of Toronto

Toronto, Canada's largest city, is home to a diverse population of 2.8 million people living and working along the shores of Lake Ontario. Throughout history, Toronto has focused on the safety and security of its water services, but now safety and security increasingly means ensuring that the City's water systems have the adaptive capacity to respond to the changing climate and extreme weather events. To that end, in 2003, a comprehensive watershed-based "Wet Weather Flow Management Master Plan” was adopted by City Council to address the water quantity and water quality impacts of wet weather flows.  Subsequent to the adoption of the Plan, an extreme rainfall event in 2005 profoundly influenced the implementation of the Plan, emphasizing basement flooding protection as a first order priority.   Subsequent extreme storms, and the associated widespread flooding that ensued, have reinforced the need, and intensified the demand, for the implementation of mitigation measures.  Through the City's Basement Flooding Protection Program, upgrades are being made to storm drainage and sewer systems to mitigate the impacts from extreme storms.   

The City's climate change adaptation strategy has resulted in an investment of over $270 million (as of the end of 2017) on infrastructure and storm drainage improvements, with planned spending in the amount of $1.5 billion over the next 10 years.  Chief Engineer Michael D'Andrea will present details about Toronto's Basement Flooding Protection Program, focusing on the adaptive management philosophy, infrastructure enhancements, and policy considerations of the Program.

Bio:

Michael D’Andrea is the Chief Engineer and Executive Director of Engineering and Construction Services for the City of Toronto.

Michael earned a Master's degree in civil engineering from Western University and has more than 30 years of experience in the municipal engineering, water, wastewater and construction services industry.  He has worked in engineering consulting, at the Province of Ontario's Ministry of the Environment, Conservation and Parks, and has been with the City of Toronto since 1997. 

In his current role, Michael leads almost 600 professional and technical staff, and is responsible for the engineering design and construction of the City of Toronto's water, wastewater, stormwater, transportation and solid waste infrastructure, valued at over $500 million annually. 

Previously, Michael was the Director of Water Infrastructure Management for Toronto Water, where he was responsible for infrastructure planning, capital programming, asset management and policy development in support of the City of Toronto’s water, wastewater and stormwater management infrastructure. In this role, he led several environmental stewardship initiatives, including the City's climate change adaptation strategy to reduce the risk of flooding from extreme storms; and, the development and implementation of Toronto’s Wet Weather Flow Master Plan and guidelines, which promote green infrastructure approaches and low impact development in support of Toronto's Green Standard. 

In his presentation "City of Toronto's Climate Change Adaptation Strategy to Mitigate Urban Flooding", Michael will present an overview of the Strategy's adaptive management framework, the infrastructure enhancements that are being constructed in support of the strategy, and policy considerations.

A SIMPLE FAVOR

Stephanie (Anna Kendrick) is a blogger in a small town who happens to be a single mother. Her best friend, stylish and sophisticated executive Emily (Blake Lively), goes missing shortly after asking Stephanie for a favor. Emily’s husband Sean (Henry Golding) has no idea where she is. Stephanie writes about the disappearance, asking her readers for help, and put fliers up all over town.

As she looks into what happened, Stephanie begins to realize she really didn’t know Emily very well at all.

Rachel Chu (Constance Wu), an American-born Chinese economics professor who lives in New York, has been dating her boyfriend Nick Young (Henry Golding) for over a year when he invites her on a trip to his home country of Singapore to attend his friend Colin’s wedding and meet his family. On the trip, when they’re booked into first class on the plane, Rachel soon finds out Nick comes from a very wealthy family.

In fact, he’s one of the most sought-after unmarried men back home — and probably throughout the rest of Asia. When Rachel meets Nick’s mother, Eleanor (Michelle Yeoh), it quickly becomes clear that the woman thinks Rachel isn’t good enough for her son and never will be. Even though Nick is crazy about Rachel and is considering marrying her, Eleanor does everything she can to come between them. Knowing that his family is very important to Nick, Rachel feels she either has to stand up to Eleanor — or let Nick go.

A SIMPLE FAVOR

Playing: NOV 16 - 22
(No shows Sunday or Monday.)


7:00 pm

Rating:  14A

Stephanie (Anna Kendrick) is a blogger in a small town who happens to be a single mother. Her best friend, stylish and sophisticated executive Emily (Blake Lively), goes missing shortly after asking Stephanie for a favor. Emily’s husband Sean (Henry Golding) has no idea where she is. Stephanie writes about the disappearance, asking her readers for help, and put fliers up all over town.

As she looks into what happened, Stephanie begins to realize she really didn’t know Emily very well at all.


CRAZY RICH ASIANS

Rating:  PG

Rachel Chu (Constance Wu), an American-born Chinese economics professor who lives in New York, has been dating her boyfriend Nick Young (Henry Golding) for over a year when he invites her on a trip to his home country of Singapore to attend his friend Colin’s wedding and meet his family. On the trip, when they’re booked into first class on the plane, Rachel soon finds out Nick comes from a very wealthy family.

In fact, he’s one of the most sought-after unmarried men back home — and probably throughout the rest of Asia. When Rachel meets Nick’s mother, Eleanor (Michelle Yeoh), it quickly becomes clear that the woman thinks Rachel isn’t good enough for her son and never will be. Even though Nick is crazy about Rachel and is considering marrying her, Eleanor does everything she can to come between them. Knowing that his family is very important to Nick, Rachel feels she either has to stand up to Eleanor — or let Nick go.

The Distinguished Speakers Committee presents Michael Bryant (lawyer, politician and Executive Director & General Counsel, Canadian Civil Liberties Association).

“Abolishing Bail in Canada” 

"The criminal justice system in Canada feeds itself. The worst manifestation of its circularity is the bail system. Eliminating bail as we know it would free up over half of the prison population, reduce wrongful guilty pleas, save billions, dramatically reduce the trial backlog, stop the practice of detaining people who are supposed to be innocent until proven guilty, and wipe out one of the top crimes in Canada: bail breaches.”

A SIMPLE FAVOR

Rating:  14A

Stephanie (Anna Kendrick) is a blogger in a small town who happens to be a single mother. Her best friend, stylish and sophisticated executive Emily (Blake Lively), goes missing shortly after asking Stephanie for a favor. Emily’s husband Sean (Henry Golding) has no idea where she is. Stephanie writes about the disappearance, asking her readers for help, and put fliers up all over town.

As she looks into what happened, Stephanie begins to realize she really didn’t know Emily very well at all.


CRAZY RICH ASIANS

Rating:  PG

Rachel Chu (Constance Wu), an American-born Chinese economics professor who lives in New York, has been dating her boyfriend Nick Young (Henry Golding) for over a year when he invites her on a trip to his home country of Singapore to attend his friend Colin’s wedding and meet his family. On the trip, when they’re booked into first class on the plane, Rachel soon finds out Nick comes from a very wealthy family.

In fact, he’s one of the most sought-after unmarried men back home — and probably throughout the rest of Asia. When Rachel meets Nick’s mother, Eleanor (Michelle Yeoh), it quickly becomes clear that the woman thinks Rachel isn’t good enough for her son and never will be. Even though Nick is crazy about Rachel and is considering marrying her, Eleanor does everything she can to come between them. Knowing that his family is very important to Nick, Rachel feels she either has to stand up to Eleanor — or let Nick go.

A public roundtable celebrating the launch of Western's Centre for Urban Policy and Local Governance

Friday, November 23, 2018, 1–2:30pm
Social Science Centre 1004

London is at a crossroads. Neither a core global city nor a place left behind, it occupies the open middle ground of Canada's urban future.  What kind of future do we want for London, and how do we get there? Who should lead, and who needs to be at the table? What can we learn from other mid-sized cities?

This keynote roundtable will bring together civic leaders and academics for an open public discussion of these questions.

It is the inaugural event hosted by Western’s new Centre for Urban Policy and Local Governance, which brings researchers and practitioners together to advance our collective capacity to meet key governance challenges that face our communities.

The famous archaeological site of Schöningen, Germany, is most well-known for the discovery of wooden spears made around 300,000 years old. These are the world's oldest human-made wooden artifacts ever found. The recovery of other wooden artifacts, stone tools, and the bones of butchered animals like horses, speaks to the repeated presence of pre-modern humans along this ancient lakeside in the Lower Paleolithic period. Professor Dr. Thijs van Kolfschoren, a zooarchaeologist at Leiden University, The Netherlands, has been working at this site since 1992, and has analysed tens of thousands of ancient animal bones, including those from saber-tooth cats, wolves, and many herbivores. Through detailed analyses of animal remains and other artifacts, he reconstructs what the ancient environment was like and what past people were eating. His work shows that these early humans were active hunters with specialized tool kits.

"The Material Matters: Labour and Creativity as 'Physical Thinking'"

Presented by Professor Jeff Noonan, University of Windsor.

Abstract: The paper will begin as a reflection on a comment by the British sculptor Antony Gormley that I read in an exhibit at the Tate British in September.  Discussing the practice of sculpture, Gormley commented that it taught him that “making is a form of physical thinking.”  In my reading, Gormley is not arguing that making is a way of embodying a form in “matter,” but rather that working with specific material gives us a different sense of what thinking is.  Since specific materials have their own texture, structure, and limits, working with them teaches us the limits of thought.  It is the basis of creative transformation, but the material within which it realizes itself sets limits to the possible.  Physical thinking, then, is both creative and humble:  it is the power to re-shape material, but only within the limits of the material on which it works.
 
In the second part of the paper I want to use this conception of physical thinking as a basis from which the re-think Marx’s conception of the nature and value of labour.  Marx famously says that what separates the worst of architects from the best of bees is that the architect erects their building in mind first.  When we think of this conception of labour from Gormley’s perspective, the irony of a materialist ignoring the material in which the idea is realised is obvious.  For Marx, at least in this passage, the specificity of material is ignored in favour of a very old Aristotelian relationship between form as active and matter in general as valueless in itself and passive.
 
In the final section I want to draw some provisional conclusions about the value of labour if we approach it as “physical thinking” which must discover and respect limits even as it re-shapes matter.  Aesthetically, this approach opens up the possibility of seeing beauty in material structures as such.  Ethically, (in the broad sense, to refer to forms of life and not abstract rules), it suggests that working with material is an irreducible element of valuable human lives, not only because it allows us to re-shape matter to suit out needs, but also because it teaches that we must evaluate our needs in light of a material world that resists our ideas and  makes a claim to be left alone.  Finally, politically and economically, it checks the Prometheanism of both capitalism and certain interpretations of Marxism, and suggests the need to re-think both human freedom and pleasure: both become incoherent when thought of as absolutes that tolerate no limitation.

“Computational neuroanatomy with magnetic resonance imaging”

ABSTRACT

Advances in imaging technology, including ultra-high field MRI, are giving us the capability to probe the brain at unprecedented resolution. This provides an opportunity to address pressing clinical problems, such as the detection of subtle structural abnormalities for surgical treatment of epilepsy, and the investigation of imaging biomarkers for neurodegenerative diseases. Our group is developing computational techniques in neuroimaging to address these challenges, paying particular attention to brain anatomy from the microscopic to the mesoscopic scale. This talk will highlight our current work in structural modelling of the hippocampus, which makes use of ultra-high field 7 Tesla MRI, advanced diffusion MRI, and 3D histology.

STUDENTS – after the talk, you’re encouraged to return to the 2nd floor Atrium lounge to meet with the speaker.
COFFEE – coffee and cookies will be available in the 2nd floor Atrium lounge at 1:15 p.m.
CELL PHONES – as a courtesy to the speaker and audience, please set your cellphones to “silent” mode. Thanks!
