Abstract

Against the presentation of an asymmetric global governance, this article
analyzes the formation of global migration governance with its focus on the
politics of migration and development. It traces the marginalization of a
rights-based approach to migration and the streamlining of migration
governance into business-friendly migration management and a geopolitical
securitization agenda. It also reviews the trajectory towards factoring
migration into a global development policy discourse as formulated in the
UN 2030 Development Agenda. Specifically, it indicates that the inclusion of
migration into the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) may promote
migrant workers’ rights because several of these invoke universal human
rights instruments, social protection and the observance of the ILO decent
work agenda. However, this will only be possible if civil society critically
engages powerful state and non-state actors in the process of monitoring the
SDGs’ implementation, and resists their streamlining into investment and free
trade neoliberal development regimes.

Abstract

The current special issue examines the development of an emerging global
governance on migration and the spaces, roles, strategies and alliancemaking
of a composite transnational civil society engaged in issues of rights
and the protection of migrants and their families. This question is connected
with how different actors – the United Nations, international organizations,
governments and a wide variety of civil society organizations and regional
and global trade unions – perceive the root causes of migration, global
inequality and options for sustainable development. The contributions
included in the special issue interrogate from different perspectives the
positionality and capacity of civil society to influence the Global Forum for
Migration and Development. They examine the opportunities and challenges
faced by civil society in its endeavor to promote a rights-based approach
within international and intergovernmental fora engaged in setting up a
global compact for the management of migration and in other global policy
spaces.

Abstract

This article discusses dilemmas of global civic activism from a neo-Gramscian
perspective as both subordinated and a potential challenge to hegemonic
neoliberal order. With the investigational focus on the People’s Global Action
on Migration, Development and Human Rights (PGA) event, the space for
civic activism relating to the intergovernmental Global Forum on Migration
and Development (GFMD) and its associated Civil Society Days and Common
Space is analysed. The article asks how the future of PGA activism may be
influenced by its formalized representation within the GFMD. It posits that
the PGA has landed at a crossroad between becoming a global activist
counterhegemonic movement to a dominant neoliberal migration policy and
being captured in a tokenist subordinated inclusion within a truncated
‘invited space’ for interchange. This ambiguous position jeopardizes its
impact on global migration governance, discussed with reference to theories
of transversal politics and issues of counterhegemonic alliance-building.

Abstract

Seit mehreren Jahrzehnten prägt Globalisierung die Welt - politisch, wirtschaftlich und sozial. Dies veränderte viele Lebenssachverhalte erheblich, sowohl im Positiven wie im Negativen. Im Ergebnis entstanden Zwiespältigkeit und eine postglobale Misere, die es zu bewältigen gilt. Jürgen Tureks umfangreiche Analyse geht den Gründen für die Destabilisierung der zivilisatorischen Verhältnisse im Spannungsfeld wirtschaftlicher Dynamik, sozial-kultureller Aufregung und politischer Unsicherheit nach. Seine differenzierte Bestandsaufnahme verschafft Orientierung und schlägt konkrete politische Lösungsstrategien vor.

Abstract

Structures and processes occurring within and between states are no longer the only – or even the most important - determinants of those political, economic and social developments and dynamics that shape the modern world. Many issues, including the environment, health, crime, drugs, migration and terrorism, can no longer be contained within national boundaries. As a result, it is not always possible to identify the loci for authority and legitimacy, and the role of governments has been called into question. Civil Society anf International Governance critically analyses the increasing impact of nongovernmental organisations and civil society on global and regional governance. Written from the standpoint of advocates of civil society and addressing the role of civil society in relation to the UN, the IMF, the G8 and the WTO, this volume assess the role of various non-state actors from three perspectives: theoretical aspects, civil society interaction with the European Union and civil society and regional governance outside Europe, specifically Africa, East Asia and the Middle East. It demonstrates that civil society’s role has been more complex than one defined in terms, essentially, of resistance and includes actual participation in governance as well as multi-facetted contributions to legitimising and democratising global and regional governance. This book will be of interest to students and scholars of political science, international relations, civil society, sociology, European politics and global governance. 1.

Abstract

Aktuelle gesellschaftliche Diskurse sind vielfach von Globalisierungsassoziationen geprägt. Sie gehören zum allgegenwärtigen Argumentationsrepertoire und werden zumeist als Inbegriff einer faktischen Globalisierung idealisiert. In seiner Analyse der medialen Darstellung der Vereinten Nationen (UN) geht Dirk-Claas Ulrich den Verflechtungen von Medien und Öffentlichkeiten nach und klärt, inwieweit sich diese den normativen Minimalanforderungen globaler Öffentlichkeitsformationen annähern. Zugleich widmet er sich der Frage nach einer medial multiplizierten UN-Legitimationskrise. In der Verknüpfung von Globalisierungs-, Öffentlichkeits- und Auslandsberichterstattungstheorie leuchtet die Studie die empirische Substanz einer #on("i")#Global Public Sphere#off("i")# detailliert aus.
