  1. 1. Assessing Trade and Human Rights Regime Impacts on State Autonomy for Policy and Regulatory Activities

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Statsvetenskapliga institutionen; Lunds universitet/Graduate School; Lunds universitet/Master of Science in Development Studies

    Author : Robert Leasure; [2018]
    Keywords : Right to water; human rights regime; trade regime; state autonomy; policy integration; Social Sciences;

    Abstract : The human rights regime and the trade regime set obligations on states that may create conflicts that challenge a state’s autonomy for policy and regulatory practices. To deal with these conflicts, we argue that states employ different causal mechanisms from Risse, Ropp and Sikkink’s spiral model when setting their commitments to, and executing compliance with, these regime obligations, and that the conditions that determine their willingness and ability to do so change over time.

  2. 2. Mineral Constraints on the Source Lithologies at Fogo, Cape Verde.

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för geovetenskaper

    Author : Elin Rydeblad; [2018]
    Keywords : olivine; clinopyroxene; carbonatite; Cape Verde; Eclogite; source lithologies;

    Abstract : Variations in major, minor, and trace elements compositions and ratios, as well as isotope ratios are all useful tools in studying the composition of the Earth’s mantle, and heterogeneities present therein. Since the mantle itself doesn’t easily lend itself to study, ocean island basalt (OIBs) are commonly used as a proxy due to compositional differences combined with the range of origination depth, a combination that allows them to represent the heterogeneity of the mantle, sampling everything from the core mantle boundary to the old or recent additions of recycled oceanic crust.

  4. 4. Temporal evolution of historic mafic lavas from Fogo, Cape Verde

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för geovetenskaper

    Author : Erik Magnusson; [2016]
    Keywords : Cape Verde; Fogo; temporal evolution; igneous petrology; oxygen isotopes; Kap Verde; Fogo; tidsmässig utveckling; magmatisk petrologi; syreisotoper;

    Abstract : The volcanic Island of Fogo that is situated near the end of the southern island chain in the archipelago of Cape Verde is one of the most active oceanic volcanoes in the world. The purpose of this study was to investigate temporal variations in lavas from Fogo by using whole rock major and trace elements and describe trends in magmatic differentiation, melting systematics and mantle source compositions.
