Haiti : hope for a fragile state( )

11 editions published between 2006 and 2008 in English and held by 1,619 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Haiti: Hope for a Fragile State sheds light on the varied and complex roots of the current crisis, dispels misperceptions, and suggests that the situation in Haiti, despite evidence to the contrary, is not completely desperate. Inspired by a 2005 conference co-hosted by the University of Waterloo's Centre for Foreign Policy, the Academic Council on the United Nations System (ACUNS), the Centre for International Governance Innovation (CIGI), and the Laurier Centre for Military Strategic and Disarmament Studies (LCMSDS), this book brings together diverse perspectives on development, the military, history, NGOs, and politics and discusses the peace-building efforts of the past, suggesting ways to move forward to make Haiti a strong state."--Jacket

Can the world be governed? : possibilities for effective multilateralism by Alan S Alexandroff( )

7 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 1,486 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this book, leading international relations experts and practitioners examine through theory and case study the prospect for successful multilateral management of the global economy and international security. In the theory section contributors tackle the big questions: Why is there an apparent rising tide of calls for reform of current multilateral organizations and institutions? Why are there growing questions over the effectiveness of global governance? Is the reform of current organizations and institutions likely or possible? Case studies include the examination of difficulties facing global development, the challenges facing the IMF and the governance of global finance, the problems of the UN 2005 World Summit and its failed reform, and the WTO and the questions raised by the prolonged Doha Development Round."--Jacket
From civil strife to peace building : examining private sector involvement in West African reconstruction( )

6 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 1,451 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From Civil Strife to Peace Building examines peace-building efforts in the fragile West African states of Sierra Leone, Liberia, and Cote d'Ivoire, with a focus on the role of the private sector in leading the reconstruction initiatives. Given that aid and debt relief, the traditional remedies for dependency and underdevelopment, have not been effective, the private sector is increasingly viewed as a major player in the revival of regional economies. Private sector support, however, requires government intervention to improve investment climates, curb corruption, strengthen the security secto

Exporting good governance : temptations and challenges in Canada's aid program by Jennifer M Welsh( )

6 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 1,315 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Can good governance be exported? International development assistance is more frequently being applied to strengthening governance in developing countries, and in Exporting Good Governance: Temptations and Challenges in Canada's Aid Program, the editors bring together diverse perspectives to investigate whether aid for good governance works." "Presenting both conceptual analysis and empirical case studies, the first section of the book examines the rise of good governance in the Canadian aid agenda and the changing international setting in which this has occurred. These chapters probe the shifting international politics of aid; the evolution of the concept of "good governance" in aid agencies; the history of Canada's evolving aid priorities; the organization of Canadian aid; and the prospects of greater international co-operation on development assistance. The second section presents case studies of six nations. Three are countries to which Canada has devoted a significant portion of its aid efforts over the past five to ten years: Ghana, Vietnam, and Bangladesh. Two are newer and more complex "fragile states" in which Canada has engaged: Haiti and Afghanistan. These five are then compared with Mauritius, which has enjoyed relatively good governance. The final section looks at challenges and new directions for Canada's development policy."--Jacket

100 years of Canadian foreign policy( )

2 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 1,014 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The editors take a critical look at the now almost mainstream "declinist" thesis and at the continued relevance of Canada's relationships with its principal allies - the United Kingdom, France, and the United States. Contributors discuss a broad range of themes, including the weight of a changing identity in the evolution of the country's foreign policy, the fate of Canadian diplomacy as a profession, the often complicated relationship between foreign and trade policies, the impact of immigration and refugee procedures on foreign policy, and the evolving understanding of development and defence as components of Canada's foreign policy

Emerging powers in global governance : lessons from the Heiligendamm process( )

3 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 765 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The early twenty-first century has seen the beginning of a considerable shift in the global balance of power. Major international governance challenges can no longer be addressed without the ongoing co-operation of the large countries of the global South. Brazil, Russia, India, China, South Africa, ASEAN states, and Mexico wield great influence in the macro-economic foundations upon which rest the global political economy and institutional architecture. It remains to be seen how the size of the emerging powers translates into the ability to shape the international system to their own will
The fabric of peace in Africa : looking beyond the state by Pamela R Aall( )

6 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 671 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Over the past two decades, Africa has seen dozens of conflicts over a variety of issues. Responding to these conflicts requires concerted action to manage the crises--the violence, the political discord, and the humanitarian consequences of prolonged fighting. But it is also necessary to rebuild communities, societies and states torn apart by the conflict, addressing the long-term social and economic impact of the conflict. To do so, it is necessary to look at institutions and groups rarely considered in formal official conflict management activities of African and partner governments--schools, universities, religious institutions, media, commercial enterprises, legal institutions, civil society groups, youth, women and migrants. These entities can potentially play an important role in building a sense of identity, fairness, shared norms, and a cohesion between state and society--all critical components of the fabric of peace and security in Africa. This book brings together leading experts from Africa, Europe and North America to examine these critical social institutions and groups and identify how they can either build or impede peaceful resolution of conflicts and commitment to common purpose. This book will open new doors of understanding for students, scholars and practitioners focused on bringing strengthening peace in Africa."--Résumé de l'éditeur

From desolation to reconstruction : Iraq's troubled journey by Mokhtar Lamani( Book )

8 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 201 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Iraq's streets are unsafe, its people tormented, and its identity as a state challenged from within and without. For some, Iraq is synonymous with internal hatred, bloodshed, and sectarianism. The contributors to this book, however, know another Iraq: a country that was once full of hope and achievement and that boasted one of the most educated workforces in its region--a cosmopolitan secular society with a great tradition of artisans, poets, and intellectuals. The memory of that Iraq inspired the editors of this volume to explore Iraq's current struggle. The contributors delve into the issues and concerns of building a viable Iraqi state and recognize the challenges in bringing domestic reconciliation and normalcy to Iraqis
Global governance and diplomacy : worlds apart? by A Cooper( Book )

6 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 197 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"While diplomacy is a well-established topic for study, global governance is a relatively new arrival to the conceptual landscape of international relations. At first glance the two exist in separate worlds with little or no engagement between scholars of one or the other. At the most fundamental level, the absence of dialogue between diplomacy and governance derives from contrasting understandings of the nature of contemporary world politics, including the nature of globalization and the role of the state in the twenty-first century. Examining the relationship between these two concepts for the first time in a comprehensive manner, this book contains rich theoretical and case study analyses by noted academics and diplomatic practitioners."--Back cover
