Social networks and migration in wartime Afghanistan by Kristian Berg Harpviken( Book )

13 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 157 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Kristian Berg Harpviken presents a framework for understanding how people's networks are essential for their responses to war and disaster. People's network resources are crucial for mobilizing or maintaining physical resources, for their security, and for the gathering of information. Applying this framework to the analysis of wartime migration, the book challenges one-dimensional victim images of wartime migrants, emphasizing the importance of agency and network resources in responding to unpredictable social environments. The book's systematic application of a network analytical perspective, building on mechanisms developed through studies in other areas (particularly economic and organizational sociology) is unique. This analytical bridge-building brings new insights to the study of responses to armed conflict, where there has previously only been loose debate on whether social networks fragment or gain strength in the face of war. Discussing migration throughout three decades of war in Afghanistan, the book is based on original fieldwork during the period of the Taliban's domination of Afghanistan, focusing on two villages in one of the country's most severely war-stricken areas."--Book cover
Troubled regions and failing states : the clustering and contagion of armed conflicts( Book )

11 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 127 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Is the phenomenon of state failure better understood through a focus on the regional context? To what extent may studies of regional security benefit from a focus on the capacities and vulnerabilities of the states involved? These are the questions addressed in this volume of Comparative Social Research. Substantially, this special issue operates at the intersection of the larger debates on state failure and on regional (in- ) security, relating to various perspectives within each of these. State failure, manifesting itself in the inability of a state to maintain its monopoly of violence, has become a widespread phenomenon in several regions of the world. While the weakness of the institutions of the state in question is an obvious dimension of state failure, there is also an important international dimension. In many of these cases, conflicts are interwoven and violence spills across borders

A rock between hard places : Afghanistan as an arena of regional insecurity by Kristian Berg Harpviken( Book )

8 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 41 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What drives neighbouring states to intervene in the Afghan conflict? This book challenges mainstream analyses which place Afghanistan at the centre - the so-called 'heart' - of a large pan- Asian region whose fate is predicated on Afghan stability. Instead Harpviken and Tadjbakhsh situ--ate Afghanistan on the margins of three regional security complexes - those of South Asia, Central Asia, and the Persian Gulf - each characterised by deep security rivalries, which, in turn, informs their engagement in Afghanistan. Within Central Asia, security cooperation is hampered by competition for regional supremacy and great power support, a dynamic reflected in these states' half-hearted role in Afghanistan. In the Persian Gulf, Iran and Saudi Arabia fight for economic and political influence, mirrored in their Afghan engagements; while long-standing Indo-Pakistani ri--valries are perennially played out in Afghanistan. Based on a careful reading of the recent political and economic history of the region, and of Great Power rivalry beyond it, the authors explain why efforts to build a comprehensive Afghanistan-centric regional security order have failed, and what might be done to re-set inter-state relations
