Abstract

The territorially sovereign nation-state – the globally dominant political formation of Western modernity – is in crisis. Though it is a highly heterogeneous assemblage, moulded by different histories involving myriad socio-cultural processes, its territorial integrity and sovereignty are always contingent and related to the distribution and organization of authority and power, and the state’s position within encompassing global dynamics.This volume attends to these contingencies as they are refracted by the communities and populations that are variously incorporated (in conformity or resistance) within their ordering processes. Withethnographically grounded analyses and thick description of locales as various as Russia, Lebanon and Indonesia, a vital conversation emerges about forms of state control under challenge or in transition.It is clear that the politico-social configurations of the state are still taking new directions, such as extremist populism and a general dissatisfaction with the corporatism of digital and technologicalrevolutions. These are symptoms of the dilemmas at the peripheries of capital growth coming home to roost at their centres. Such transformations demand the new forms of conceptualization that the anthropological approaches of the essays in this volume present.A fascinating and timely collection that dwells on the unsettled nature of contemporary relationships between ‘state’ and ‘society’. Drawing on case studies from beyond the heartland of political theory, contributors refuse to treat global phenomena as generic and focus instead on the specific social relations that constitute the varied possibilities and limits of contemporary state power.Penny Harvey, Professor of Social Anthropology,University of ManchesterThis is political anthropology on a truly large canvas. The standing question about how ‘state’ and ‘society’ relate, and whether the distinction between them makes sense in the first place, is tackled deftly through the lenses of varying conceptions and practices of power and resistance.Martin Holbraad, Professor of Social Anthropology, University College London

Abstract

Despite the potential of digital technologies to contribute to the enhancement of access to quality education and the development of lifelong learning competencies, many knowledge&#xD;gaps remain in how, for whom and in what contexts digital technologies actually do contribute&#xD;to improved, equitable educational outcomes. More research is needed that creates and&#xD;tests ‘proven models’ of digital learning in Asian schools and deepens our understanding of the&#xD;conditions that are necessary and sufficient for success. And this research needs to build on the&#xD;research that has already been done in the region and worldwide. The primary aim of this book&#xD;section is to provide snapshots of the current state in research and to identify and explain the&#xD;research gaps and future directions of digital learning for development in Asian schools.

Abstract

“It’s not so much what you agree upon, what you write on paper, but something intangible that in the end determines the success of political cooperation,” stated the leader of the Uganda People’s Congress Dr. Olara Otunnu. Hoping to put an end to the dominant-party system of Uganda – where President Yoweri Museveni and his National Resistance Movement had ruled since 1986 – in 2008, four parties of the opposition gathered under the banner of the Inter-Party Cooperation (IPC). Their intention ...

Abstract

This paper assesses coordination as a salient capability of international&#xD;interventions in complex settings characterised by weak&#xD;states, the dominance of political elites whose interest in reforms&#xD;is questionable and multiple local and international stakeholders.&#xD;It focuses on the challenge of integrating a range of national and&#xD;international actors and multiple policy domains, assessing this&#xD;operational capability in terms of a Whole-of-Society approach.&#xD;Using the example of the EU’s intervention in Kosovo through&#xD;the mechanisms of the EULEX mission, and the EU-facilitated&#xD;Dialogue between Serbia and Kosovo, the paper argues that the&#xD;EU’s impact in Kosovo was weakened by its limited ability to&#xD;include and engage a broad range of local stakeholders. While a&#xD;Whole-of-Society approach could address this weakness, the paper&#xD;also argues that a better understanding of the context-specific&#xD;opportunities and limitations placed on international organisations&#xD;like the EU is needed.

Abstract

This edited volume provides a synthesis on the question of business attitudes towards and its influence over the development of the modern welfare state. It gathers leading scholars in the field to offer both in-depth historical country case studies and comparative chapters that discuss contemporary developments. Composed of six archive-based historical narratives of business’ role in the development of social insurance programs in Germany, Finland, the Netherlands, Switzerland, the United Kingdom and the United States, and six comparative case studies, this volume also extends the study of business to policy fields that have hitherto received little attention in the literature, such as active labor market policies, educational policies, employment protection legislation, healthcare, private pension programs and work‐family policies. It illuminates why business groups have responded so very differently to demands for increased social protection against different labor market risks in different countries and over time. This text will be of key interest to students and scholars of comparative welfare, political science, sociology, social policy studies, comparative political economy and welfare history.&#xD;

Abstract

Esta obra busca comprender las construcciones de sentidos sociales del espacio denominado Araucanía-Norpatagonia. Y es importante destacar que los sentidos no son unívocos. En este caso, la pluralidad de lo territorial se intuye en las diferentes perspectivas de acercamiento, mostrando tanto la polisemia como las tensiones detrás de conceptos tales como espacio, frontera o representación.Para ello, los investigadores y cientistas sociales que escriben este volumen, asumen el debate centro-periferia entendiendo que la particular mirada desarrollada desde un territorio de integración tardía, como es la Patagonia tanto en Argentina como en Chile, construye una mirada epistemológica necesaria y singular.Así, la Patagonia adopta un carácter plural, las naciones se diversifican y los sentidos y prácticas de lo estatal se complejizan. Además, las territorialidades y las subjetividades forman parte de los desafíos que se abordan, reconociéndose como abiertos.

Abstract

En este libro se propone una estrategia innovadora para lograr el Estado de bienestar en el siglo XXI: reorientar las actividades económicas hacia la construcción y reconstrucción de ciudades sustentables. En una economía mundial que enfrenta crisis económicas y políticas, Roberto Kozulj plantea que si las actividades vinculadas al desarrollo urbano se reorientaran hacia la obra pública, se tendería a resolver en gran parte el problema del desempleo estructural. A partir de un crecimiento económico basado en la activación del empleo de baja cualificación, el mantenimiento y transformación de ciudades permitirían que la sustentabilidad despliegue sus beneficios. Por una parte las generaciones futuras podrían disponer de recursos naturales y un medioambiente no degradado y, por otra, ejercer sus oportunidades de ser insertadas en el mercado laboral.
