Fragile states and insecure people? : violence, security, and statehood in the twenty-first century by Louise Andersen( )

9 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 658 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book provides a unique account of the pursuit of security at the edge of global order. It sheds light on reform of state police and armed forces, and analyzes the alternative security structures that emerge in the absence of the state. In contrast to other volumes on state failure, this book remains open-minded as to which model for security is better. It thus challenges the current state-building model and the idea of the central state as the only legitimate provider of security."--Jacket

From pirate ports to special economic zones : violence, regulation and portmaking in the Somali Peninsula by Jatin Dua( )

2 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 83 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Locating itself within a series of port cities, this paper elaborates a port-centered view of polity, economy, and sociality in the Somali peninsula. The paper begins with a historical and theoretical overview of port cities before turning to a specific set of case studies from the three port cities of Benderbeyla, Bosaso, and Djibouti. The interplay between violence and regulation in channeling and re-channeling mobility within seemingly distinct spaces becomes thus apparent. The comparison of these port cities highlights different modes and scales of port-making. Benderbeyla port exemplifies a space from which global circulation is violently re-channeled, be it through the capture of ambergris or by piracy. Bosaso corresponds to a mode of port-making that is also framed by violence, but provides a safe and cheap haven for circulation. While both port cities have a relationship to regulation, trade and state-making do not fully overlap in the first two scales of port-making. Djibouti represents a third scale of port-making where sovereignty emerges as a resource in order to re-channel trade. Providing a corrective to the land-centered writing that has dominated Somali studies these port cities reveal a polity and sociality that emerge through claims over mobility as opposed to territory or population. In so doing this paper provides a new vantage point to understand the arrivals and departures that constitute everyday life in the Horn of Africa
Diaspora groups and development in fragile situations : lessons learnt by Nauja Kleist( )

3 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 82 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report examines programmes targeting specific migrants and diaspora groups as development agents with particular emphasis on fragile situations. It is part of the Research and Communication Programme (ReCom) on Foreign Aid, and is commissioned by the Danish Ministry of Foreign Affairs. The examination has the following objectives: 1. To study the results of migration-development programmes with particular emphasis on improved poverty reduction and service delivery, and reconstruction processes. 2. To identify practices producing intended or unintended positive and negative results as well as any dilemmas in these results, and to relate practices producing desired results across contexts. 3. To assess the validity and scope of the material on diaspora groups as development agents in fragile situations. Three kinds of programmes are examined respectively focusing on: remittances, diaspora organisations and return, together representing some of the most common migration-development programmes in fragile situations. Selection criteria for specific programmes and cases were based on relevance and good documentation. This material is supplemented by interviews with Danish NGO personnel, a Somali diaspora organisation, and academic studies. The study shows that programme experiences are mixed and highly contextual. Nevertheless, some general lessons learnt have been identified, presented below
Russian hybrid warfare : a study of disinformation by Flemming Splidsboel Hansen( )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 82 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The basic tenet of the Russian disinformation strategy is the claim that all news is constructed and therefore contested. In the best postmodern tradition they claim there is no 'objective news' - only different, rivalling interpretations which purport to show different aspects of what may be called 'reality'. And what the Russian media outlets present are merely possible explanations which serve as alternatives to the stories offered by Western media. It is a strategy which is both cunning and elegant as it preys on the enlightenment tradition and on the vulnerabilities of liberal democratic media. The Russian authorities seem to believe that (dis- ) information campaigns hold great prospects. There will not be any easy or fix-it-all solutions to this development. Rather, liberal democracies, especially vulnerable as a result of their free media culture, should prepare themselves for a long-term commitment to countering disinformation and to building up cognitive resilience to ensure that the former has minimal effect
Bandits, borderlands and opium wars : Afghan state-building viewed from the margins by Jonathan Goodhand( )

2 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 82 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper explores the linkages between the drugs economy, borderlands and 'post conflict' state-building in Afghanistan. It does this through a fine grained historical analysis of Sheghnan, a remote district on the Afghan-Tajik border in the north-east. The paper charts the opening and closing of the border, the movement of people, commodities and ideas across the border, the effects of changing political regimes, the role of resources and their effects on local governance, and the complex, multifaceted networks that span the border and are involved in the drugs trade. The paper argues that the drugs economy has been an important part of the story of borderland transformation in Sheghnan. Because of drugs, borderlands are no longer marginal, but have become a resource to be exploited by the centre. As such the paper argues that examining the frontier may throw light on processes of state formation, state collapse and 'post conflict' state-building. A focus on borderlands means taking seriously the 'politics of place' and examining the diffuse dynamics and localised projects that feed into and shape processes of state formation

China and the South China Sea : two faces of power in the rising China's neighborhood policy by Erik Beukel( )

2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 81 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The South China Sea is subject to competing claims of sovereignty by the littoral states. Due to the number of claimants and the complexity of claims, it is called the "mother of all territorial disputes". China is far the biggest country in the region and claims sovereignty over almost all the South China Sea. This Working Paper elaborates the claims and considers the implications for China's neighborhood relations and the alignments in the Asia-Pacific. The focus is on two faces of power in China's policy, military power and soft power, after China's seizure of Mischief Reef in 1995 that upset its neighbors. China attaches great weight to developing good neighborhood relations and has become an advocate of soft power. However, when it concerns the South China Sea the soft power approach is combined with a continuing use of military power to strengthen its position. It is concluded that the two faces of power present China with new unwieldy challenges
Third generation civil-military relations and the "new revolution in military affairs" by Frederik Rosén( )

3 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 81 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The encounter with insurgency violence in Iraq and Afghanistan has pressed the US Department of Defense to improve the US military's ability to conduct counterinsurgency. It has been argued that this shift may constitute a turning point in the history of the US military, which until now has focused its attention and resources on conventional warfare. The analysis is that the US military is currently in the process of 'learning counterinsurgency', but that it is still unclear whether this process will make counterinsurgency a US military priority. This working paper contributes to this discussion by look-ing at a particular aspect of the ambitious stabilization work that the US Department of Defense has commenced in Afghanistan, in which the US military is carrying out holistic civil governance reform projects. Whether such work will become a part of the US military's standard repertoire depends on the degree of success and possible entrenchment of the current innovations. However, as will be argued, this expansion of the functions of the military organization into civil governance is historical, and it might bring about pro-found changes to the US military, perhaps even transforming the notion of military more generally
Learning from Danish Counter-Piracy off the Coast of Somalia by Jessica Larsen( )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 81 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Since the mid-2000s, piracy off the coast of Somalia has posed a serious threat to international shipping and the safety of seafarers. As a seafaring nation, combating Somali piracy quickly became an important security and foreign policy priority for Denmark. This report documents Denmark's recent role in international counter-piracy off the coast of Somalia and examines the challenges and opportunities posed by Danish involvement. The report offers central points for policy-makers to take into account when planning future participation in international maritime security operations, including other forms of maritime crime such as drug- and weapon-smuggling in the Indian Ocean and human trafficking in the Mediterranean. The report identifies four areas in particular in which Denmark may contribute to maritime security. These areas are aligned with Danish capabilities and interests, as well as critical gaps in existing international engagement
Stabilizing Niger : the challenges of bridging local, national and global security interests by Éric Komlavi Hahonou( )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 81 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper investigates international security intervention in Niger, a key country in western strategy against global Jihad and trans-border activities (including criminal activities and migrations toward Europe). A few actors, in particular France and the EU, but also the US, dominate international intervention in Niger. Their main objective is to secure their own strategic, economic and political interests by strengthening the Nigerien authorities through direct intervention and capacity building activities. For western states reinforcing state security institutions and stabilizing elite rule constitute the only realistic path to defend their own interests. The report suggests that international support of Nigerien security forces could be counter-productive for the re-establishment of state authority and legitimacy in the long-term. Brutal repression and violation of human rights in the name of state security has already severely undermined the legitimacy of the Nigerien government
Forged in crisis : the EU's common security and defence policy after Brexit by Christine Nissen( )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 81 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

By the middle of 2019, it is highly likely that the UK will no longer be a part of the EU. In direct response to Brexit, the EU has embarked on a path towards developing a much stronger EU security and defence union. Thus, a crucial question in the coming years will be how the UK-EU relationship will be organized after Britain leaves. As the scenarios put forward in this section have pointed out, the future relationship between the UK and the EU may develop in significantly different directions. While both the EU and the UK have an interest in retaining some relationship, it will not be a straightforward political or legal exercise to do so. The current process for strengthened EU defence and security cooperation focuses on developing joint capabilities rather than on institution building or the deployment of new missions. While member states agree on a step-by-step plan towards enhanced capabilities, there is still no clear end-goal for EU security and defence cooperation. From a political perspective, there are good reasons for continued involvement of the UK in EU security and defence cooperation post-Brexit. From a legal perspective however, it will be difficult to retain this involvement since the EU treaties only give decision-making competences to EU member states
Regional interests in African peace operations by Adam Moe Fejerskov( )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 81 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The past decade has seen African countries step up their contributions to peace operations. African soldiers now constitute half of all United Nations (UN) peacekeepers across fifteen missions worldwide, and together, UN and AU missions include a combined total of 85,000 African troops. In many of these missions, neighbouring and regional states in close proximity to and at times directly involved in situations of conflict provide a significant proportion of mission personnel. This report addresses the challenges arising from this development. It focuses on how the strategic regional interests of neighbouring countries involved in peace operations are shaping the ability of these missions to perform their allotted tasks. Taking into account the vast differences between AU and UN missions, the report explores the operational consequences of increasingly including and even relying on regional and neighbouring countries. To do so, it analyses two complex and important contemporary missions in Africa, the AU Mission in Somalia (AMISOM), and the UN Multidimensional Integrated Stabilization Mission in Mali (MINUSMA). The report highlights the severe operational consequences of strong regional interests but also alludes to the importance of African solutions to African problems and of strong regional support to peace operations
Islamic State enters Al-Qaeda's old hotbed Afghanistan and Pakistan by Mona Kanwal Sheikh( )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 80 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ten years ago, the borderlands between Pakistan and Afghanistan were the command post for leaders of Al-Qaeda (AQ). But what has happened with AQ since then? And what sort of collaboration or conflict is there between the dominant Taleban-related movement in the region, AQ, and the new kid in town; Islamic State (IS)? Below I look at the emergence of IS in Afghanistan and Pakistan and at the dynamics that have impacted the relationship between the "old" movements in the region (Taleban and AQ) on the one hand, and IS on the other. IS is still a fledgling movement in the "afpak" region, and therefore there is still no clear picture of its influence and resonance in Afghanistan and Pakistan. Because the situation is still unfolding, this article is based on very limited source material about the movement
