Between principle and practice : human rights in north-south relations by David Gillies( )

22 editions published between 1996 and 2014 in English and held by 2,008 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Between Principle and Practice examines the human rights diplomacy of three prosperous industrial democracies with international reputations for protesting human rights abuses - Canada, the Netherlands, and Norway. David Gillies reveals that even these countries were seldom prepared to sacrifice short-run economic or political interests in order to protest gross and systematic human rights abuses beyond their borders." "Based on case studies of five Third World countries (Sri Lanka, the Philippines, China, Indonesia, and Suriname), Gillies explores the extent to which principles were followed in practice and shows that consistent, coordinated, and principled action is elusive even for countries that have a reputation for internationalism. He highlights the growing rift between the North Atlantic democracies and emerging Asian economic powers, the effectiveness of using aid sanctions to defend human rights, and the vicissitudes of human rights programming in emerging democracies." "On a theoretical level, Gillies examines the explanatory power of political realism and the scope available for ethical conduct in a world of states. Linking policy assertiveness with perceived costs to other national interests, he constructs a framework for analysing policy actions and applies it to his various case studies. He concludes that when it comes to human rights, the gap between principle and practice is still far too wide."--Jacket

Democracy and economic development by David Gillies( )

6 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 63 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The papers in this volume are part of the IRPP's International Democratic Development research program, which assesses Canada's policies and programs in delivering this kind of assistance. The objectives of the project are to establish how Canada can contribute most effectively to the collective international effort to assist democratic development and to determine best practices for delivery of Canadian assistance. The first paper addresses interventions that have been used by donors of economic assistance to underdeveloped countries to try to improve the effectiveness of their assistance. The second paper deals with interventions that have been more exceptional in both their frequency and consequences. These have involved some form of military engagement and the more or less complete reconstruction of systems of government.--Includes text from document

Between ethics and interests : human rights in the north-south relations of Canada, The Netherlands, and Norway by David Gillies( )

5 editions published between 1992 and 1994 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Each donor's search for moral opportunity is visible in an emerging agenda to promote human rights and democratic development. However, if the resolve to defend human rights beyond national borders is gauged by a state's willingness to incur harm to other important national interests, then Canada, the Netherlands, and Norway are seldom disposed to let human rights trump more self-serving national interests. The potential for consistent and principled human rights statecraft is frequently undermined by Realism's cost-benefit rationality." --
Commerce over conscience : Canada's foreign aid programme in the 1980s by David Gillies( )

3 editions published between 1986 and 1992 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This study is an examination of recent changes in the organisation and activity of Canada's foreign aid programme. Three conceptually distinct categories form the theoretical framework of the study: (a) contending approaches to the study of international relations; (b) contending conceptions of economic growth and development; and (c) contending approaches to the aid policy-making process. The study examines the multiple objectives underlying Canada's aid programme, develops and interprets a series of "aid quality" indices, and undertakes a detailed examination of the aid policy process. Emphasis is placed on tracing the specific combination of domestic "push" and international "pull" factors which have pressured Ottawa into initiatives promoting a closer linkage of the aid and trade facets of government activity. Attention is also drawn to the impact of these initiatives on the developmental objectives of the programme." --
