Abstract: For decades, film festivals have provided sites for creation and exchange of film knowledge through screenings, discussion and other interpersonal exchanges. This has been especially evident in the power relations of European nations and wider national industries and films of the global South. In the last twenty years, many festivals have also taken more active roles in production through arrangements of co-production and funding, again allowing European festivals to promote films from specific areas, groups or figures of the developing world.
This paper draws on interviews, film analysis and festival structures to explore this important ongoing change, its functions and impact from Rotterdam, Berlin and Locarno to Pusan and Hong Kong. This analysis also allows us to understand the implications of this changing role for global power, within the world of film as well as across other global parameters.

Abstract: The European Union (EU) has prominently been characterised as a regulatory state in the sense that perhaps the most significant authority of the EU rise out of its almost irresistible rule-making abilities. The rule-making abilities of the EU are typified by having little or no direct budget implications (e.g. as opposed to distributive policies) and, traditionally, EU’s rule-making authority has been studied in terms of its impact on regulations in EU member states. Clearly, however, the EU is also – and perhaps increasingly so – involved in regulatory activities on a global scale. This raises the question of the global regulatory powers of the EU. That is, is the EU mainly a recipient of global regulations and standards and, thus, perhaps mainly a ‘mid-way house’ for the globalization of national regulation? Or, has the EU been as successful a regulatory state globally as we have seen within EU member states? Or, finally, perhaps the EU is more of a co-producer of global regulations along with other international actors and governance structures? This paper investigates these questions through a comparative study of two significant global policy fields: data-protection and banking.

"Using Coal Bed Methane Produced (Brine) Water for Native and Non-Native Grassland Establishment in the San Juan Oil and Gas Producing Basin of Northwestern New Mexico" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the SOIL AND WATER CONSERVATION SOCIETY, TBA, Tucson, Arizona, <Not Available>. 2019-10-20 <>
Publication Type: Abstract
Abstract: Over 1.25 million acres of U.S. Bureau of Land Management lands in the San Juan Oil and Gas Producing Basin are overlying federal mineral reserves. Well sites in the basin produce five to over 150 barrels per day of brine water ranging from 1000 mg/L to more than 30,000 mg/L of total dissolved salts (TDS). The TDS mainly contain high amounts of sodium and chlorine with electrical conductivity (EC) levels over 10 dS/m and sodium absorption (SAR) ratios over 15.

In 2006 approximately 34 million barrels (42 gallons/barrel) were injected back in into the San Juan Oil and Gas Producing Basin formations. There is over two million barrels of brine water produced per month that are hauled to salt water disposal units at a cost of approximately $3.50/barrel or over $110 million per year.

The objectives of this research from 2003 to 2006 were to select native and non-native grass cultivars that would be salt tolerant and to determine the breaking point for salt levels affecting native and non-native grassland establishment. Cultivars were rated for stand establishment approximately one year after brine water application. Arriba Western, San Luis Slender, Hy Crest Crested Wheatgrasses, and VNS (variety not stated) Bottlebrush Squirreltail resulted in excellent germination and stand establishment regardless of TDS brine water application.

The judicious use of produced water with elevated TDS appears to be a viable strategy for well site and disturbed land rehabilitation.
