Resistance and change in world politics : international dissidence( )

12 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in English and German and held by 160 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This edited volume analyses different forms of resistance against international institutions and charts their success or failure in changing the normative orders embodied in these institutions. Non-state groups and specific states alike advocate alternative global politics, at the same time finding themselves demonized as pariahs and outlaws who disturb established systems of governance. However, over time, some of these actors not only manage to shake off such allegations, but even find their normative convictions accepted by international institutions. This book develops an innovative conceptual framework to understand and explain these processes, using seven cases studies in diverse policy fields; including international security, health, migration, religion and internet politics. This framework demonstrates the importance of coalition-building and strategic framing in order to form a successful resistance and bring change in world politics.
Diasporic activism in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict by Svenja Gertheiss( )

10 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 125 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Previous research has highlighted that Diasporas often exacerbate conflicts and contribute to their protraction. More recently, however, scholars have pointed to the positive aspects of diasporic engagement. However, insufficient research--above all, theoretical work--exists on the conditions under which Diasporas become 'doves' rather than 'hawks'. Through an analysis of the activities of Arab-Palestinian and Jewish organizations on behalf of and towards their conflict-ridden homelands, Diasporic Activism in the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict provides both a detailed picture of diasporic activism in the Middle East as well as advancing theory-building on the roles of diasporas in helping or hindering peace. Particularly since the Oslo peace process, the search for a solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict has been strongly contested among Jewish and Arab/Palestinian organizations in the United States. Drawing on research into (transnational) social movements, diaspora studies and constructivist international relations theory, this book retraces how this process of diversification occurred, and explains why neither the Jewish nor the Arab Diaspora community hold a unified position in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, but are each comprised of both hawks and doves. Combining theoretical depth and practical orientation, this book is a key resource for those working in the fields of Middle Eastern studies, peace and conflict studies and diaspora studies, as well as specialists on the ground in Israel/Palestine and other conflict settings in which Diaspora communities play a prominent role"--Provided by publisher

Salafismus und Dschihadismus in Deutschland Ursachen, Dynamiken, Handlungsempfehlungen( Book )

2 editions published in 2016 in German and held by 26 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Spätestens seit den Attentaten von Paris und Brüssel ist auch hierzulande die Diskussion um Salafismus und Dschihadismus - als Gefahrenpotenzial sowie als Anlaufstelle für Sympathisanten - allgegenwärtig. Bis heute haben sich 800 Personen aus Deutschland einer dschihadistischen Gruppierung in Syrien oder dem Irak angeschlossen. In diesem Band kommen einschlägige Expertinnen und Experten zu Wort. Er beleuchtet bisher wenig erforschte Bereiche wie die organisatorischen Strukturen der salafistischen Bewegung und ihre transnationale Vernetzung. Wie rekrutieren die Bewegungen ihre Mitglieder? Und wie rechtfertigen sich insbesondere Dschihadisten? Die Autorinnen und Autoren bewerten laufende Präventions- und Deradikalisierungsmaßnahmen und schlagen eine Brücke zwischen Wissenschaft und Praxis. Dabei verengen sie den Blick nicht auf sicherheitspolitische Fragen, sondern nehmen in interdisziplinärer Perspektive Salafismus und Dschihadismus auch als gesellschaftliche Herausforderung ernst
