The fragmentation of aid : concepts, measurements and implications for development cooperation
Stephan Klingebiel, Timo Mahn, Mario Negre, editors
London : Palgrave Macmillan imprint is published by Springer Nature, [2016]
This edited volume provides an assessment of an increasingly fragmented aid system. Development cooperation is fundamentally changing its character in the wake of global economic and political transformations and an ongoing debate about what constitutes, and how best to achieve, global development. This also has important implications for the setup of the aid architecture. The increasing number of donors and other actors as well as goals and instruments has created an environment that is increasingly difficult to manoeuvre. Critics describe today's aid architecture as 'fragmented': inefficient, overly complex and rigid in adapting to the dynamic landscape of international cooperation. By analysing the actions of donors and new development actors, this book gives important insights into how and why the aid architecture has moved in this direction. The contributors also discuss the associated costs, but also potential benefits of a diverse aid system, and provide some concrete options for the way forward.

European cosmopolitanism : colonial histories and postcolonial societies
edited by Gurminder K. Bhambra and John Narayan
Abingdon, Oxon ; Routledge, 2017
Introduction: Colonial Histories and the Postcolonial Present of European Cosmopolitanism / Gurminder K. Bhambra and John Narayan -- part 1. Theorizing European Cosmopolitanism Otherwise. Cosmopolitan Europe: Memory, Apology and Mourning / Meyda Yeǧenoǧlu ; Ah, We Have Not Forgotten Ethiopia: Anti-Colonial Sentiments for Spain in a Fascist Era / Robbie Shilliam ; Communist Cosmopolitanism / Larry Ray and William Outhwaite -- part 2. Alternative historical Groundings of Cosmopolitanisms in Europe. Always Already Cosmopolitanism: Indigenous Peoples and Swedish Modernity / Gunlög Fur ; The Early Modern SPanish Monarchy and European Cosmopolitanism / M.J. Rodríguez-Salgado ; The Cosmopolitan Caribbean Spirit and Europe: Cosmopolitan Sensibilities among Spiritual Baptist Adherents / Shantelle George -- part 3. Contemporary Postcolonial Cosmopolitanisms. Rethingking Cosmopolitanism, Multiculturalism and Diaspora via the Diasporic Cosmopolitanism of Europe's Kurds / Ipek Demir ; Europe is over! Afro-European Mobilities, Former Colonial Metropoles, and New Cosmopolitanisms / Sarah Demart ; Fanon's Decolonized Europe: The DOuble Promise of Coloured Cosmopolitanism in the Age of Austerity / John Narayan ; Epilogue: A New Vision of Europe: Learning from the SOuth / Boaventura de Sousa Santos.

This book provides a fresh examination of the cosmopolitan project of postwar Europe from a variety of perspectives. It explores the ways in which European cosmopolitanism can be theorized differently if we take into account histories which have rarely been at the forefront of such understandings. It also uses neglected historical resources to draw out new and unexpected entanglements and connections between understandings of European cosmopolitanism both in Europe and elsewhere. The final section of the volume places European cosmopolitanism in tension with contemporary postcolonial configurations around diaspora, migration, and austerity. Overall, it seeks to draw attention to the ways in which Europe's posited others have always been very much a part of Europe's colonial histories and its postcolonial present.

The palgrave handbook of mass dictatorship
Paul Corner, Jie-Hyun Lim, editors
London : Palgrave Macmillan, [2016]
"This book offers a fresh and original approach to the study of one of the dominant features of the twentieth century. Adopting a truly global approach to the realities of modern dictatorship, this handbook examines the multiple ways in which dictatorship functions - both for the rulers and for the ruled - and draws on the expertise of more than twenty five distinguished contributors coming from European, American, and Asian universities. While confronting the immense complexities of repression and popular response under dictatorship, the volume also poses a series of wide-ranging questions about the political organization of present-day mass society."--Publisher's description.

Iran's nuclear program : a study in proliferation and rollback
Rezaei, Farhad, author
Cham : Springer International Publishing : c2017
Proliferation, Sanctions And Rollback: A Multidisciplinary Approach -- The Islamic Revolution And The Bomb: Quran Meets Realism -- Rafsanjani?s Nuclear Takeoff: Taking Advantage Of The Weak Non-proliferation Regime -- Khatami?s Dialogue Among Civilizations And The Nuclear zdisappearance Acty -- Ahmadinejad?s Principalist Doctrine: Sovereign Rights To A Nuclear Arsenal -- International Sanctions: The High Cost Of Proliferation In A Neopatrimonial Regime -- The Rouhani Presidency: The Road To Rollback -- Conclusion.

This book presents the first full and systematic account of Iran?s nuclear program from 1979 to 2015. Throughout this time, foreign policy makers, intelligence experts, and scholars on the subject have repeatedly failed to understand the internal dynamics behind Iran's nuclear project and have underestimated the depth of the regime?s commitment to develop nuclear weapons. The author presents an account of little-understood episodes in the history of the nuclear project, including an analysis of the decision making process of the znuclear sanctum.y A full account is given of the organizations that ran the project and a listing of the suppliers that made the project possible. Finally, the book offers a detailed analysis of the international sanctions placed on Iran, including the induced anomie and legitimacy crisis which expedited the decision to rollback.

Prioritization theory and defensive foreign policy : systemic vulnerabilities in international politics
Kassab, Hanna Samir, 1984- author
Cham, Switzerland : Palgrave Macmillan, [2017]
1. Introduction -- 2. Theoretical framework -- 3. State and power vulnerability -- 4. Economic vulnerability -- 5. Environmental and health vulnerabilities -- 6. Political vulnerabilities and transnational threats -- 7. Cyber-vulnerability -- 8. Recommendations: desecuritization, prioritization and defensive foreign policy -- 9. Think weak, act weak: a look into state mentalities -- Conclusions -- Works cited -- Index.

This book studies systemic vulnerabilities and their impact on states and individual survival. The author theorizes that the structure of the international system is a product of the distribution of capabilities and vulnerabilities across states. States function or behave in terms of these systemic threats. The author examines a number of specific case-studies focusing on military, economic, environmental, political and cyber vulnerabilities, and how different states are impacted by them. Arguing that current attempts to securitize these vulnerabilities through defensive foreign policies are largely failing, the books makes the case for prioritizing economic development and human security.

Transnational governance and South American politics : the political economy of norms
Peña, Alejandro Milcíades
London : Palgrave Macmillan, ©2016
Where does private governance go? -- Framing transnational governance -- Global trajectories in sustainable governance -- Mapping participation in Argentina and Brazil -- Sustainability, ethical business and party politics in Brazil -- Politics, ideology, and indifference in Argentina.

This book examines the interface between transnational private governance and domestic politics in South America. It explores the social and political factors that condition how 'global' private norms, discourses, and initiatives dealing with sustainability and CSR regulation are engaged with, hybridized, and challenged by local actors in Argentina and Brazil. Inverting the conventional approach to global governance studies, it unpacks the complex forms in which domestic political-cultural elements embed global norms and discourses with meaning and mobilizing power, conditioning their appeal to potential participants and supporters. In doing so, the author illuminates the 'receiving side' of private regulation and governance, developing a nuanced understanding of transnational norm diffusion wherein political and ideational factors in the global South are granted primacy over global structures, processes, and agents.

"The state is central to social scientific and historical inquiry today, reflecting its importance in domestic and international affairs. States kill, coerce, fight, torture, and incarcerate, yet they also nurture, protect, educate, redistribute, and invest. It is precisely because of the complexity and wide-ranging impacts of states that research on them has proliferated and diversified. Yet, too many scholars inhabit separate academic silos, and theorizing of states has become dispersed and disjointed. This book aims to bridge some of the many gaps between scholarly endeavors, bringing together scholars from a diverse array of disciplines and perspectives who study states and empires. The book offers not only a sample of cutting-edge research that can serve as models and directions for future work, but an original conceptualization and theorization of states, their origins and evolution, and their effects"--

UN peacekeeping doctrine in a new era : adapting to stabilisation, protection and new threats
edited by Cedric de Coning, Chiyuki Aoi and John Karlsrud
London ; Routledge, Taylor & Francis Group, 2017
This edited volume offers a thorough review of peacekeeping theory and reality in contemporary contexts, and aligns the two to help inform practice. Recent United Nations peacekeeping operations have challenged the traditional peacekeeping principles of consent, impartiality and the minimum use of force. The pace and scope of these changes have now reached a tipping point, as the new mandates are fundamentally challenging the continued validity of the UN peacekeeping's core principles and identity. In response the volume analyses the growing gap between these actual practices and existing UN peacekeeping doctrine, exploring how it undermines the effectiveness of UN operations, and endangers lives, arguing that a common doctrine is a critical starting point for effective multi-national operations.

edited by Anna von der Goltz, Georgetown University, Washington DC, Britta Waldschmidt-Nelson, German Historical Institute, Washington DC

"Inventing the Silent Majority in Western Europe and the United States examines the unprecedented mobilization and transformation of conservative movements on both sides of the Atlantic during a pivotal period in postwar history. Convinced that 'noisy minorities' had seized the agenda, conservatives in Western Europe and the United States began to project themselves under Nixon's popularized label of the 'silent majority'. The years between the early 1960s and the late 1970s witnessed the emergence of countless new political organizations that sought to defend the existing order against a perceived left-wing threat from the resurgence of a new, politically organized Christian right to the beginnings of a radicalized version of neoliberal economic policy. Bringing together new research by leading international scholars, this ground-breaking volume offers a unique framework for studying the phenomenon of conservative mobilization in a comparative and transnational perspective"--

Free expression and democracy : a comparative analysis
Saunders, Kevin Wall, 1947- author
Cambridge, United Kingdom ; Cambridge University Press, 2017
The protection of free expression in a democracy -- Varieties of expression -- Incitement of crime -- Hate speech -- Holocaust denial and other false assertions of fact -- Political party bans -- Political campaign limitations -- The desecration of national symbols and lèse majesté -- Defamation -- Attacks on personal honor -- Obscenity and child pornography -- Children and expression -- Criminal trials and freedom of the press -- Government secrecy -- A matter of choices.

"[This book] takes on the assumption that limits on free expression will lead to authoritarianism or at least a weakening of democracy. That hypothesis is tested by an examination of issues involving expression and their treatment in countries included on The Economist's list of fully functioning democracies. Generally speaking, other countries allow prohibitions on hate speech, limits on third-party spending on elections, and the protection of children from media influences seen as harmful. ... Yet, these other countries all remain democratic and most of those considered rank more highly than the United States on the democracy index. The book argues that while there may be other cultural values that call for more expansive protection of expression, that protection need not reach the level present in the United States in order to protect the democratic nature of a country."--Page [i].

Inside job : how government insiders subvert the public interest
Zupan, Mark A., author
Cambridge, United Kingdom ; Cato Institute Cambridge University Press, 2017
1. Government for the people? -- 2. Why worry about government insiders and their profits? -- 3. How do government insiders profit at the public's expense? -- 4. What do government insiders stand to gain? -- 5. What factors curb hijacking by government insiders? -- 6. Why are government insiders so hard to control? -- 7. Where and when has the state been co-opted from within? -- 8. Government insiders : a day of reckoning for China? -- 9. Government insiders : a day of reckoning for the United States? -- 10. How can we form a more perfect union?

"National decline is typically blamed on special interests from the demand side of politics corrupting a country's institutions. The usual demand-side suspects include crony capitalists, consumer activists, economic elites, and labor unions. Less attention is given to government insiders on the supply side of politics - rulers, elected officials, bureaucrats, and public employees. In autocracies and democracies, government insiders have the motive, means, and opportunity to co-opt political power for their benefit and at the expense of national well-being. Many storied empires have succumbed to such inside jobs. Today, they imperil countries as different as China and the United States. Democracy - government by the people - does not ensure government for the people. Understanding how government insiders use their power to subvert the public interest - and how these negative consequences can be mitigated - is the topic of this book by Mark A. Zupan"--

A democratic bearing : admirable citizens, uneven injustice, and critical theory
White, Stephen K., author
Cambridge, United Kingdom ; Cambridge University Press, 2017
Moral and theoretical sources -- Models of citizenship : virtual patriots and tea parties -- Models of citizenship : a democratic bearing -- Depth experience, faith and democratic life -- Path for critical political theory -- The consensus machine and "no-saying" -- Suspicious conjectures and uneven injustice.

In this rich analysis of the changing ideals of citizenship, Stephen K. White offers a path for the renewal of democratic life in the twenty-first century. Looking beyond passive notions of citizenship defined in terms of voting or passport possession, White seeks a more aspirational portrait, both participatory and inclusive, that challenges citizens, especially in the middle class, to confront power structures to achieve greater justice. Using the Tea Party as a foil, he shows how that group's resentful and exclusivist conception of active citizenship undermines democratic aspirations. White explores how such deleterious influence might be effectively engaged by a robust counter-conception on the democratic left. The book makes this aspirational ideal conceptually clear, normatively compelling and aesthetically attractive.

Cuba's revolutionary world
Brown, Jonathan C. 1942- author
Cambridge, Massachusetts : Harvard University Press, 2017
Revolution and counterrevolution in Cuba -- How to consolidate a revolution -- The Caribbean war of 1959 -- Cuba and the Sino-Soviet dispute -- The gusano counterrevolution -- The bandido counterrevolution -- Commandos of the Caribbean -- The export of revolution -- The secret war for South America -- Revolutionary diplomacy and democracy -- Venezuela's guerrilla war -- Military counterrevolution in Brazil -- Soldiers and revolution in Peru -- From riots to golpe in Panama -- Origins of Argentina's armed struggle -- The last campaign of Che Guevara.

On January 2, 1959, Fidel Castro, the rebel comandante who had just overthrown Cuban dictator Fulgencio Batista, addressed a crowd of jubilant supporters. Recalling the failed popular uprisings of past decades, Castro assured them that this time "the real Revolution" had arrived. As Jonathan Brown shows in this capacious history of the Cuban Revolution, Castro's words proved prophetic not only for his countrymen but for Latin America and the wider world. Cuba's Revolutionary World examines in forensic detail how the turmoil that rocked a small Caribbean nation in the 1950s became one of the twentieth century's most transformative events. Initially, Castro's revolution augured well for democratic reform movements gaining traction in Latin America. But what had begun promisingly veered off course as Castro took a heavy hand in efforts to centralize Cuba's economy and stamp out private enterprise. Embracing the Soviet Union as an ally, Castro and his lieutenant Che Guevara sought to export the socialist revolution abroad through armed insurrection. Castro's provocations inspired intense opposition. Cuban anticommunists who had fled to Miami found a patron in the CIA, which actively supported their efforts to topple Castro's regime. The unrest fomented by Cuban-trained leftist guerrillas lent support to Latin America's military castes, who promised to restore stability. Brazil was the first to succumb to a coup in 1964; a decade later, military juntas governed most Latin American states. Thus did a revolution that had seemed to signal the death knell of dictatorship in Latin America bring about its tragic opposite.--Provided by publisher

The politics of bureaucratic corruption in post-transitional Eastern Europe
Zaloznaya, Marina, author
Cambridge, United Kingdom ; Cambridge University Press, 2017
Introduction -- Beyond transition: political turnover and bureaucratic corruption in hybrid regimes -- The secret life of universities in post-Soviet Ukraine -- Fear and transparency in the universities of post-Soviet Belarus -- High political turnover and cross-organizational variation in corruption in post-Soviet Ukraine -- Low political turnover and cross-sectoral variation in corruption in post-Soviet Belarus -- Conclusion.

Using a mix of ethnographic, survey, and comparative historical methodologies, this book offers an unprecedented insight into the corruption economies of Ukrainian and Belarusian universities, hospitals, and secondary schools. Its detailed analysis suggests that political turnover in hybrid political regimes has a strong impact on petty economic crime in service-provision bureaucracies. Theoretically, the book rejects the dominant paradigm that attributes corruption to the allegedly ongoing political transition. Instead, it develops a more nuanced approach that appreciates the complexity of corruption economies in non-Western societies, embraces the local meanings and functions of corruption, and recognizes the stability of new post-transitional regimes in Eastern Europe and beyond. This book offers a critical look at the social costs of transparency, develops a blueprint for a 'sociology of corruption', and offers concrete and feasible policy recommendations. It will appeal to scholars across the social sciences, policymakers and a variety of anti-corruption and social justice activists.

In light of their geographical proximity and crucial strategic importance, the European Union (EU) has long identified cooperation with the countries of the Mediterranean region a central priority of its external relations and has developed a complex set of policies and instruments. Yet, there is a certain academic consensus that EU external policies in the area did not live up to their original expectations, insofar as little progress was made to accomplish the proclaimed goals while the implementation of structural reforms proved to be extremely problematic. These deficiencies in EU Mediterranean policies are symptomatic of what is a greater challenge in EU external policy-making: the struggle for implementation. This book analyses the implementation of the European Neighbourhood Policy in the Mediterranean, focusing on specific programs financed under the European Neighbourhood Policy Instrument in the years before and after the Arab uprisings. Building on a comparative analysis of two Maghreb countries, Tunisia and Morocco, it provides an in-depth investigation on the role of domestic actors in constraining or providing points of opportunity for the implementation of the ENP. The book presents new empirical data and, by focusing on the role of local actors in the neighbouring countries, it offers interesting insights not only into the ENPI complex processes of implementation, but also on the challenges of the E U in the region and the state of relations with the Southern neighbourhood. Through the prism of the European Neighbourhood Policy, the book provides a window into the internal politics and relevant issues of Maghreb countries. It will therefore be a valuable resource for students and scholars of European and Mediterranean Studies.
