Abstract

The organisation of the territory is the outcome of strategies of varying scope, in which a number of agents interact to shape out the areas of operation. The Liguria reality is probed here through four different situations - separated in chronological terms but sharing the poor visibility and limited efficacy of the fortified settlements. These focus on Genoa, both in the definition of its hinterland between the tenth and the eleventh centuries, and in establishing the bulwarks of coastal territorial expansion in the twelfth; the powerful groups of feudal lords who remoulded the rural settlement layout in the thirteenth century; finally, a village of the hinterland explored right through to the modern age.

Abstract

This volume represents the third publication in the series devoted to the theme "Figures in space, politics and society", promoted by a specific interdisciplinary study group, and is the result of the study day held in Florence in December 2003. The objective here is to set up comparisons with the suggestions thrown up by historical and literary evidence pertinent to the numerous modes of imagining space with reference to the political and social spheres. A series of extracts from sources collateral to the classical political panorama highlights the fertility of the line of research and the efficacy of the interdisciplinary approach adopted.

Abstract

What’s left from the new economy? This book takes an unfashionable perspective and shows that despite all the mistaken ideas and exaggerations, the technological changes of the 1990s still have important effects today. Economic history shows that technological revolutions tend to generate deep economic and social crises before a temporary state of equilibrium is reached. The established modes of accumulations and regimes of regulation of national capitalisms and international capitalism have been undermined by the collapse of the high tech asset bubble. Financial markets are still in disarray. What can be observed, however, is that national economies are better positioned to tackle the crisis than others. Why is this? This and other important questions are tackled by an international team of contributors including Daniele Archibugi, Harald Hagemann, Bruno Amable, Martin Heidenreich and David Gibbs. This volume should be of great interest to all those working at the intersection of international politics and economics.

Abstract

Why, from the eighteenth century onwards, did some countries embark on a path of sustained economic growth, while others stagnated? This text looks at the kind of institutions that are required in order for change to take place, and Ringmar concludes that for sustained development to be possible, change must be institutionalized. Taking a global view, Ringmar investigates the implications of his conclusion on issues facing the developing world today.

Abstract

Seit fast 40 Jahren wird der Sicherheitsdiskurs durch die gegenläufige Bezugnahme von Innerer Sicherheitspolitik und linker Kritik geprägt. Letztere galt im Sicherheitsdiskurs über lange Jahre hinweg selbst als Feindbild. Erstmals rückt diese kritische Position nun in den Mittelpunkt der Forschung. Aus diskursanalytischer Perspektive untersucht der Autor konservative und kritische Positionen zu Innerer Sicherheit - und kommt zu überraschenden Befunden: Trotz ihrer vordergründigen politischen Gegenläufigkeit sind auffällige Gemeinsamkeiten und geteilte Grundannahmen feststellbar. Zudem werden im Sicherheitsdiskurs gegenwärtig sog. Fremde bzw. "kriminelle Ausländer" als Hauptfeindbilder mobilisiert, d.h. Konstruktionen, die wesentlich rassistisch fundiert sind. Angesichts jener bereits angesprochenen Gemeinsamkeiten lautet deshalb eine weitere zentrale Frage, ob bzw. inwieweit die heutige Kritik an Innerer Sicherheitspolitik diesen Feindbildwandel berücksichtigt.

Abstract

Mit der Globalisierungsthematik sind seit den 1990er Jahren Nichtregierungsorganisationen (NGOs) in den Mittelpunkt des Interesses sowohl der Politik als auch der Sozialwissenschaften gerückt. Oftmals wurden NGOs dabei als Träger der Hoffnungen auf Entfaltung zivilgesellschaftlicher Entwicklungen in der Weltgesellschaft betrachtet. Die vorliegende Studie analysiert die inzwischen ausdifferenzierte Debatte um NGOs und zeigt kritisch deren theoretische Defizite auf, indem verschiedene Theorien der Weltgesellschaft sowie der herrschaftskritischen Organisationstheorie auf innovative Weise zusammengeführt werden. NGOs erscheinen so eben nicht als Gegenspieler der Globalisierung, sondern als Vermittler der universalistisch-rationalistischen Grundstruktur der Moderne. Ihre Einbettung in das hegemoniale Doppelkonzept von "dialogischen Verfahren" und "formaler Organisierung" verhindert, dass emanzipatorische Alternativen auf globaler Ebene relevant werden.
