#rezist – Romania’s 2017 anti-corruption protests: causes, development and implications
edited by Ana Adi and Darren Lilleker
Available for free download, the report captures in its collection of essays and articles written by activists, journalists, academics and protestors, a variety of perspectives of the #rezist 2017 protests: the personnel, the political and media environments, and their impact. In doing so, it raises questions regarding the future, the challenges faced by Romanians seeking greater input into democracy as well as those faced by a government attempting to retain power and legitimacy.

Set for publication by Oxford University Press in December 2017, this week I sent to production the Oxford Encyclopedia of Climate Change Communication, an edited series of 115 original peer-reviewed articles published in print and digital format, and by way of the web-based Oxford Research Encyclopedia (ORE) Climate Science. At the link below, you can find the preface to the volume, in which I briefly summarize the main focus areas and themes. The collected articles comprehensively review research on climate change communication, advocacy, media and cultural portrayals, and their relationship to societal decisions, public knowledge, perceptions, and behavior. Ranging in length from 5K to 12K words, the articles are co-authored by 250+ experts representing more than a dozen disciplines and twenty countries. Two years in the making, the project was only possible because of the expert guidance and many hours of work contributed by the world class team of associate editors who are co-editors of the volume: Mike S.Schäfer (University of Zurich, CH) Ezra Markowitz, University of Massachusetts-Amherst USA)( Shirley Ho (Nanyang Technological University, Singapore), J Jagadish Thaker (Massey University, NZ), and Saffron O'Neill (Exeter University, UK).
