Abstract

Konflikte scheinen heute gleichbedeutend mit Gewalt und Krieg. Doch Konflikte sind vielschichtig: Sie können sowohl zur Integration von Gesellschaften beitragen als auch diese zerbrechen. Die Anthropologie der Konflikte, zu der Georg Elwert weiterführende Thesen beigetragen hat, beleuchtet unterschiedliche Konfliktdynamiken und geht der Frage nach, unter welchen Bedingungen integrative, eskalative oder segregative Institutionen der Konfliktaustragung entstehen - oder wieder zerfallen. Der Band geht davon aus, dass Konfliktformen und soziale Organisation in einem wechselseitigen Zusammenhang stehen. Daher hat die Anthropologie der Konflikte deren verschiedene Formen, ihre kulturelle Codierung wie auch ihre konstitutive Rolle für sozialen Wandel zu untersuchen.

Abstract

This book addresses two developments in the conceptualisation of citizenship that arise from the »war on terror«, namely the re-culturalisation of membership in a polity and the re-moralisation of access to rights. Taking an anthropological perspective, it traces the ways in which the trans-nationalisation of the »war on terror« has affected notions of »the dangerous other« in different political and social contexts, asking what changes in the ideas of the state and of the nation have been promoted by the emerging culture of security, and how these changes affect practices of citizenship and societal group relations.

Abstract

In the context of the ever-increasing political problematization of migration in Europe, agencies charged with migrant administration create diverse categories of difference to distinguish between the »deserving migrant« and the illegal one: They assess the detainability or the credibility of asylum seekers, the danger posed by Islamic organizations, and make situational decisions that determine whether migration or labour law applies to individual agricultural workers. In this book, each chapter analyses how organizational interpretations of the common good shape bureaucratic practices. Together, these ethnographic analyses reveal how migration policies in different European countries take shape in administrative practice.
