Abstract

Uma condição para enfrentar e desmontar dispositivos de controle disseminados pelos sistemas de dominação, isto é, o Estado e suas vinculações com o capital, é a crítica permanente a toda e qualquer forma de representação, bem como à criação de espaços nômades de gestão pedagógica dessa (auto)crítica. O esvaziamento de um signo de poder e saber reativos torna-se impotente se não articulado a uma interpelação da lei e suas dobras no espaço público ou clandestino. Oferecemos, neste livro, um encontro com a rebeldia selvagem e libertária, encarada, do ponto de vista do campo linguístico-literário, como ciência e ação direta.

Abstract

This new volume of essays marks eighty years since the death of Marmaduke Pickthall. His various roles as translator of the Qurʾan, traveller to the Near East, political journalist writing on behalf of Muslim Turkey, and creator of the Muslim novel are discussed. In later life Pickthall became a prominent member of the British Muslim community in London and Woking, co-worker with Muslims in the Indian subcontinent, supporter of the Khilafat movement, and editor of the journal Islamic Culture under the patronage of the Nizam of Hyderabad. Marmaduke Pickthall: Islam and the Modern World makes an important contribution to the field of Muslims in Europe in the first half of the twentieth century.

Abstract

Transformative peace operations fall short of achieving the modern political order sought in post-conflict countries because the interventions themselves empower post-conflict elites intent on forging a neopatrimonial political order. The Peacebuilding Puzzle explains the disconnect between the formal institutional engineering undertaken by international interventions, and the governance outcomes that emerge in their aftermath. Barma's comparative analysis of interventions in Cambodia, East Timor, and Afghanistan focuses on the incentives motivating domestic elites over a sequence of three peacebuilding phases: the elite peace settlement, the transitional governance period, and the aftermath of intervention.

Abstract

Failed or fragile states are those that are unable or unwilling to provide a socio-political framework for citizens and meet their basic needs. They are a source of terrorism and international crime, as well as incubators of infectious disease, environmental degradation, and unregulated mass migration. Canada's engagement with countries such as the Congo, East Timor, Bosnia, and Afghanistan underlines the commitment of successive Canadian governments to addressing the threats posed to Western security by state fragility.From Kinshasa to Kandahar: Canada and Fragile States in Historical Perspective brings together leading Canadian historians and political scientists to explore Canada's historic relationship with fragile states. The collection spans the period from the 1960s to the present and covers a geographical range that stretches from the Middle East to Latin America to Southeast Asia. Authors embrace a variety of approaches and methodologies, including traditional archival historical research, postmodern textual analysis, oral history, and administrative studies to chronicle and explain Canada's engagement with fragile and failed states.This collection reflects the growing public interest in the issue of failed states, which are of increasing concern to Canadian policymakers and are making headlines on the world stage. It helps explain the historic forces that have shaped Canadian policy towards failed and fragile states, and provides a platform for a national discussion about Canada's future role addressing state fragility.

Abstract

This book provides a comprehensive examination into the flow of Ukrainian nationals to the EU. The chapters encompass and historicize this migration against a string of crises experienced by Ukraine and the region in the last three decades, from the dissolution of the USSR to changes in the EU borders to the failed economic reforms in independent Ukraine. The book engages in an impressive overview of major publications available in a variety of disciplines and in several languages, including Russian, Ukrainian, and English. It presents readers with a critical analysis of these authoritative sources along with linking historic and contemporary texts to establish continuity of the migratory trends and practices. Coverage brings together spatial, temporal, and geopolitical perspectives, offering expert analysis in such areas as economics, immigration policies, history, gender, and migration studies. In addition, the contributors also present Ukrainian migration as it is experienced within seven European countries: the Czech Republic, Germany, Greece, Italy, Poland, Portugal, and Spain. Drawing on data obtained in each country, these detailed portraits identify main trends and will help readers to better understand the dynamics of migration flow in the region as a whole. Overall, this volume provides researchers, policy makers and policy scholars, as well as students with a comprehensive overview of the wide-ranging research on this topic, a research that has been steadily growing in the last decades in a variety of disciplines but so far has not been brought together or thoroughly connected. It presents an insightful investigation that reveals not only the durability and ongoing transformation of the migratory flows from Ukraine but the restrictions of the ideological agendas that guide the research of this process.

Abstract

Focusing on the lived experience of immigration policy and processes, this volume provides fascinating insights into the deportation process as it is felt and understood by those subjected to it. The author presents a rich and innovative ethnography of deportation and deportability experienced by migrants convicted of criminal offenses in England and Wales. The unique perspectives developed here – on due process in immigration appeals, migrant surveillance and control, social relations and sense of self, and compliance and resistance – are important for broader understandings of border control policy and human rights. This title was made Open Access by libraries from around the world through Knowledge Unlatched.

Abstract

This open access book explores specific migration, governance, and identity processes currently involving children and ideas of childhood. Migrancy as a social space allows majority populations to question the capabilities of migrants, and is a space in which an increasing number of children are growing up. In this space, families, nation-states, civil society, as well as children themselves are central actors engaged in contesting the meaning of childhood. Childhood is a field of conceptual, moral and political contestation, where the ‘battles’ may range from minor tensions and everyday negotiations of symbolic or practical importance involving a limited number of people, to open conflicts involving violence and law enforcement. The chapters demonstrate the importance of how we understand phenomena involving children: when children are trafficked, seeking refuge, taken into custody, active in gangs or in youth organisations, and struggling with identity work. This book examines countries representing very different engagements and policies regarding migrancy and children. As a result, readers are presented with a comprehensive volume ideal for both the classroom and for policy-makers and practitioners. The chapters are written by experts in social anthropology, human geography, political science, sociology, and psychology.

Abstract

Democracy Promotion as Foreign Policy looks at democracy promotion as a form of foreign policy. It asks why democracy was seen to be the answer to the 7/7 bombings and why it should be promoted not in Britain, but in Pakistan. The logic and the modes of thinking that drove this response are examined through analysis of the narratives of time, history, development, civilisation and the ineluctable spread of democracy.

Abstract

Wie lässt sich das Handeln der Regierung in modernen Gesellschaften theoretisch fassen? Schon die Autoren der amerikanischen Verfassung haben die Notwendigkeit erkannt, die Exekutivgewalt einzuhegen und sie mit der Legislative zu verschränken. Dieses Prinzip gilt bis heute, doch in modernen Gesellschaften kommt hinzu, dass die Zivilgesellschaft und ihre Medien mit Regierung und Verwaltung auf vielfältige Weise miteinander verbunden sind. Die Frage ist, wie der moderne Staat als wichtigster Akteur der Politik mit der Regierung als seinem stärksten Instrument legitime Ziele erreichen kann. Der Autor zeigt die Interdependenzen zwischen Regierung, Zivilgesellschaft, Verbänden und Parlament auf und demonstriert anhand verschiedener Beispiele, dass die Exekutive kein abgehobenes Eigenleben führt. Ein zentrales Kapitel ist die Beschreibung des Innenlebens der Ministerialbürokratie. Gerade der Einblick in die täglichen Routinen im Umgang mit der Komplexität einzelner Inputs ist aufschlussreich für die Frage nach den Möglichkeiten und Grenzen politischer Gestaltung.

Abstract

Die Politische Theorie ist gegenwärtig und nicht zuletzt in Reaktion auf veränderte gesellschaftliche Verhältnisse durch eine angeregte Diskussion über das Politische geprägt. Brigitte Bargetz greift diese aktuellen Debatten auf und schlägt mit dem Konzept des Alltags einen neuen Weg vor, das Politische zu denken: Im Anschluss an Henri Lefebvre, Agnes Heller und Lawrence Grossberg entwirft sie eine vielschichtige politische Theorie des Alltags, die es ermöglicht, Alltag als ambivalenten politischen Kampfplatz zwischen Herrschaft und Widerstand zu fassen, der den Ausgangspunkt für eine praxisorientierte Theorie des Politischen auch jenseits des Staates bildet.
