Troubled regions and failing states the clustering and contagion of armed conflicts ( )
8 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 764 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
Social networks and migration in wartime Afghanistan by Kristian Berg Harpviken ( Book )
12 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 221 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
