Europe's 21st century challenge : delivering liberty by Didier Bigo( )

5 editions published between 2010 and 2016 in English and held by 1,409 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume provides a critical assessment of the liberties of citizens and others in the European Union (EU) and the different ways in which they are affected by the proliferation of discourses, practices and norms of insecurity enacted in the name of the safety of the citizen and collective security. It analyses from an interdisciplinary perspective the impacts of new techniques of surveillance and control of human movements over the liberty and security of the individual. The book offers a study of illiberal practices of liberal regimes in the field of security, and the relationship between the internal and external effects of these practices in an increasingly interconnected world, as well as the effects in relation to the place of the EU in this world. -- Back cover

Re-framing the international : law, culture(s), politics by Richard A Falk( )

13 editions published between 2002 and 2013 in English and held by 997 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Re-Framing the International insists that, if we are to properly face the challenges of the coming century, we need to re-examine international politics and development through the prism of ethics and morality. International relations must now contend with a widening circle of participants reflecting the diversity and uneveness of status, memory, gender, race, culture and class
Inside/outside : international relations as political theory by R. B. J Walker( Book )

27 editions published between 1992 and 2001 in English and Undetermined and held by 662 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this book Rob Walker offers an original analysis of the relationship between twentieth-century theories of international relations, and the political theory of civil society since the early modern period. He views theories of international relations both as an ideological expression of the modern state, and as a clear indication of the difficulties of thinking about a world politics characterized by profound spatiotemporal accelerations. International relations theories should be seen, the author argues, more as aspects of contemporary world politics than as explanations of contemporary world politics. These theories are examined in the light of recent debates about modernity and post-modernity, sovereignty and political identity, and the limits of modern social and political theory." "This book is a major contribution to the field of critical international relations, and will be of interest to social and political theorists and political scientists, as well as students and scholars of international relations.

Out of line : essays on the politics of boundaries and the limits of modern politics by R. B. J Walker( )

8 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 132 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A collection of essays on the politics of boundaries, this book addresses a broad range of cases, some geographical, some legal, and some involving less tangible practices of inclusion and exclusion. The book begins by exploring the boundary between modern Western forms of international relations and their constitutive outsides. Beyond this, the author engages with relations between subjectivity and security, security and nature, social movements and a world politics, as well as the politics of spatiotemporal dislocation. Two chapters address the work of Thomas Hobbes and Max Weber as exemplary accounts of the relationship between boundaries and the constitution of modern forms of politics. Each chapter speaks not only to the politics of specific boundary practices, but also to the limits within which modern politics has been shaped in relation to claims about spatiality, temporality, sovereignty and subjectivity. In this way, the book draws attention to a pervasive account of a scalar order of higher and lower that has shaped more familiar distinctions between internality and externality. Offering an analysis of the relation between concepts of internationalism, imperialism and exceptionalism, as well as the implications of spatiotemporal dislocation for claims about democracy, the book links contemporary claims about the transformation of boundaries to various ways in which political life is said to be in crisis and in need of novel forms of critique. Brought up to date by a new and extensive introductory essay and an assessment of the status of political judgement after 9/11, this book is essential reading for students and scholars of politics, international relations, political theory and political sociology."--

Theorizing Global Order The International, Culture and Governance( Book )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Die Theoretisierung internationaler Beziehungen setzte immer schon ein Verständnis des Gegenstandsbereichs voraus, über den reflektiert wird - etwa das "Internationale" und "Globale" oder Kategorien wie "Beziehungen" und "System". Obwohl "Ordnung" eine zentrale Kategorie sowohl des politischen Diskurses als auch der Disziplin der Internationalen Beziehungen ist, wird das Konzept erstaunlich wenig theoretisiert. Dieser Band bietet divergierende zeitgenössische Perspektiven darauf, wie globale Ordnung theoretisch gefasst werden kann

Molarization and singularization : social movements, transformation and hegemony by Nicholas Montgomery( )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This thesis presents a critique of counterhegemony, arguing that imperatives of unity and coherence in social movement theory and practice tend to limit potentials for transformation. I use the 'new social movement theory' of Alberto Melucci and Alain Touraine in order to foreground the problem of intelligibility. Laclau and Mouffe's conception of articulation is used to develop the problem of intelligibility, and helps to avoid reification. However, I argue that their concept of counterhegemony presents a blackmail where social movements either represent themselves in universal terms, or are cast as merely fragmented and particular. The Deleuzo-Guattarian concepts molarization and molecularization are used to argue that social movements that appear fragmented or vague may in fact be transformative in unexpected ways. The final chapter focuses on a recent guerilla garden at the University of Victoria, and I argue that it is significant in its capacity to foreground problems and suspend commonsense habits, without presenting a coherent and unified programme
