Democracies and war : an investigation of theoretical explanations by Felix Knüpling( Book )

3 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 142 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"That democracies do not wage war against each other is now a well-documented pattern of international politics. However, our theoretical knowledge of this so-called democratic peace is limited. We do not know what impedes democracies from fighting fellow democracies, even though they fight wars against (perceived) non-democracies. This volume contributes to the debate by way of classifying and synthesising different theoretical accounts of democratic peace at the analytical level of the state and the international system. It digs deep into the workings of the democratic political system and the orientations of its foreign policy leaders which culminate in collective action on the international arena. A central theme is that processes of integration - taking place both within as well as among democracies - lead to the formation of a common identity. Democracies construe their "friends" and "foes", basing their judgment on the way other states resolve their domestic conflicts. This argument is supported by a discussion of conceptual, methodological and epistemological problems of democratic peace. The volume concludes with a presentation of policy recommendations and a short summary in German."--BOOK JACKET
Federalism and education : ongoing challenges and policy strategies in ten countries( )

6 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 101 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The balance of centralization and decentralization also varies across institutional and policy domains, such as the legislative framework for education, drafting of curricula, benchmarking for accountability, accreditation, teacher training, and administrative responsibilities at the primary, secondary, and tertiary levels. Given these critical issues in federalism and education, this volume examines ongoing challenges and policy strategies in ten countries, namely Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, Germany, Italy, Spain, Switzerland, United Kingdom, and the United States. These chapters and the introductory overview aim to examine how countries with federal systems of government design, govern, finance, and assure quality in their educational systems spanning from early childhood to secondary school graduation. Particular attention is given to functional division between governmental layers of the federal system as well as mechanisms of intergovernmental cooperation both vertically and horizontally. The chapters aim to draw out comparative lessons and experiences in an area of great importance to not only federal countries but also countries that are emerging toward a federal system"--
