Abstract

A new examination of the International Criminal Court (ICC) from a political science and international relations perspective. It describes the main features of the court and discusses the political negotiations and the on-going clashes between those states who oppose the court, particularly the United States, and those who defend it. It also makes these issues accessible to non-lawyers and presents effective advocacy strategies for non-governmental organizations. It also delivers essential background to the place of the US in international relations and makes a major contribution to thinking about the ICC’s future. While global civil society does not deliver global democracy, it does contribute to more transparent, more deliberative and more ethical international decision-making which is ultimately preferable to a world of isolated sovereign states with no accountability outside their borders, or exclusive and secretive state-to-state diplomacy. This book will be of great interest to students and scholars of international relations, international law, globalization and global governance.

Abstract

This volume brings together expert contributors to explore the intersection of two major contemporary themes: globalization, and the contribution that both domestic party politics and international party support make to democratization. Globalising Democracy clearly shows what globalization means for domestic and international efforts to build effective political parties and competitive party systems in new and emerging democracies. Contrasting perspectives are presented through fresh case studies of European post-communist countries, Africa and Turkey. The reader is clearly shown how international party assistance is a manifestation and vehicle of globalization, and explores how it may be assessed in terms of: global economic integration the growth of global communications the development and implications for party politics of multi-level governance. This is the first book to analyze the impact of globalization on democracy and will be of great interest to all students of international relations, governance and politics.

Abstract

Öffentlich kaum wahrgenommen schreitet die Veralltäglichung des Militärischen und des Krieges voran. Der Begriff "Banal Militarism" lenkt die Aufmerksamkeit auf unspektakuläre Prozesse, die von den AutorInnen des Bandes anhand historischer wie aktueller Beispiele der Repräsentation, der Inszenierung und Aneignung des Militärischen in Literatur, Theater, Kino, (Computer-)Spiel, Mode sowie in der Presse und im Alltagsleben analysiert werden. Solche Phänomene in ihrer Wirkungsmächtigkeit auf politische Kultur zu thematisieren, theoretisch zu reflektieren und als bedeutsames Forschungsfeld zu konturieren, ist das zentrale Anliegen des Bandes.
