Michel Foucault's Biopolitics

"we can call 'biopolitics' the specific strategies and contestations over problematizations of collective human vitality, morbidity and mortality. Over the forms of knowledge, regimes of authority, and practices of intervention that are desirable, legitimate and efficacious."

(Paul Rabinow and Nikolas Rose, 12 October 2003)

Big Question: Feast or Famine?

"The world population is growing by 75 million people each year. That's almost the size of Germany. Today, we're nearing 7 billion people. At this rate, we'll reach 9 billion people by 2040. And we all need to eat. But how? That's a critical issue the IonE tackles in our first Big Question video.

At the same time, agriculture is a major contributor to climate change and will suffer as an industry from the consequences."

(Institute on the Environment, 2009, University of Minnesota)

UK National Statistics Publication Hub

"The Publication Hub remains the first port of call for all those seeking the latest statistics from government departments in the UK. It is the central website for hosting all first releases of National Statistics.

The term 'National Statistics' is an accreditation kitemark which stands for a range of qualities such as relevance, integrity, quality, accessibility, value for money and freedom from political influence. Data classed as National Statistics provide an up–to–date, comprehensive and meaningful description of the UK's economy and society.

The Publication Hub delivers updates and provides statistical news releases for all new National Statistics. You can access these when they are available directly from this website or by subscribing to the RSS news feed.

The Publication Hub also provides links to statistical products and publications that are not classed as National Statistics. It is the only website where you can access past and present statistical releases. In addition, you can find information about when future statistical releases are going to be available.

All statistical releases will continue to be held on departmental websites, along with underlying sources and datasets. As the producers of these statistics, the departments are responsible for their content and accuracy. Further contact details are provided with each statistical release."
