Moving beyond existing explanations that posit aggressive motivations, grievances or violence-prone ideologies, this book demonstrates how these factors gain and lose salience in the context of relational dynamics among various parties and actors involved in episodes of contention. The Dynamics of Radicalization offers a counterpoint to mainstream works on political violence, which often presume that political violence and terrorism is rooted in qualities intrinsic to or developed by groups considered to be radical.
The conference was attended by central bankers, EU policy- makers, members of the financial industry as well as by academics. The following key conclusions came out from the discussion: Despite its incomplete nature, the Banking Union represents a great achievement in terms of financial stability control, thus ensuring a more resilient euro area.
By contrast, the exact objective, scope and institutional capabilities of the Capital Markets Union remain a puzzle to many participants. Risks of regulatory fragmentation arising between the European Union and the Euro Area are somewhat exaggerated, it was overall felt.
The role of parties in twenty-first century politics: Routledge,West European politics series, [EUDO] For a long time analyses of political parties were framed within the usual context of democracy and of the historical transformation of the forms of democratic government.
More recently several authors, among which eminently Peter Mair, progressively began to question the relationship between the normative definition of democratic government and the actual operation of parties. While classic democratic theory sees as desirable that parties in government and in opposition, too are sympathetically responsive to their supporters first and more generally to public opinion and, at the same time, responsible toward the internal and international systemic constraints and compatibilities, these two roles seem to have become more difficult to reconcile and even increasingly incompatible.
The chapters of this book explore the tensions between responsiveness and responsibility decomposing the international sources from the domestic sources and discussing the options and the possibilities for political parties to continue to play the role of provider of political stability in rapidly changing domestic and international environments.
This book was published as a special issue of West European Politics. This publication concentrates on religious diversity and it provides a set of conceptual and theoretical resources for approaching different discourses around religious diversity, highlighting in particular the distinctive approaches and sensitivities that emerge from different disciplinary engagements. Ashgate,Research in Migration and Ethnic Relations Series As violent conflicts become increasingly intra-state rather than inter-state, international migration has rendered them increasingly transnational, as protagonists from each side find themselves in new countries of residence.
In spite of leaving their homeland, the grievances and grudges that existed between them are not forgotten and can be passed to the next generation. This book explores the extension of homeland conflicts into transnational space amongst diaspora groups, with particular attention to the interactions between second-generation migrants.
Comparative in approach, Diasporas and Homeland Conflicts focuses on the tensions that exist between Kurdish and Turkish populations in Sweden and Germany, examining the effects of hostland policies and politics on the construction, shaping or elimination of homeland conflicts.
Drawing on extensive interview material with members of diasporic communities, this book sheds fresh light on the influences exercised on conflict dynamics by state policies on migrant incorporation and multiculturalism, as well as structures of migrant organizations. As such, it will be of interest to scholars of sociology, political science and international studies with interests in migration and diaspora, integration and transnational conflict.
Springer International Publishing, This book examines how prisons meet challenges of religious diversity, in an era of increasing multiculturalism and globalization. Social scientists studying corrections have noted the important role that religious or spiritual practice can have on rehabilitation, particularly for inmates with coping with stress, mental health and substance abuse issues. In the past, the historical figure of the prison chaplain operated primarily in a Christian context, following primarily a Christian model.
Increasingly, prison populations inmates as well as employees display diversity in their ethnic, cultural, religious and geographic backgrounds. As public institutions, prisons are compelled to uphold the human rights of their inmates, including religious freedom. The contributions to this work present case studies that examine how prisons throughout Europe have approached challenges of religious diversity.
Featuring contributions from the UK, France, Italy, Germany, Switzerland, The Netherlands, Belgium and Spain, this interdisciplinary volume includes contributions from social and political scientists, religion scholars and philosophers examining the role of religion and religious diversity in prison rehabilitation.
Routledge,Journal of European integration special issues This book explores the various ways in which citizens are represented in EU policy-making. Most accounts naturally focus on the European Parliament as the prime source of democratic representation. This collection focuses instead on four other channels that are as and often more important: Based on original research, the book combines democratic theory with detailed empirical analysis to provide an innovative, timely and up-to-date evaluation of the nature of representation in the EU.
Cambridge University Press, This book serves as a sequel to two distinguished volumes on capitalism: Both volumes took stock of major economic challenges advanced industrial democracies faced, as well as the ways political and economic elites dealt with them.
However, during the last decades, the structural environment of advanced capitalist democracies has undergone profound changes: This book provides a synthetic view allowing the reader to grasp the nature of these structural transformations and their consequences in terms of the politics of change, policy outputs, and outcomes.
Svenska Institutet i Rom — Stockholm: Palgrave Macmillan, This study presents the presidential republic as the most widespread form of government in the contemporary world and looks at the countries which pioneered that development. It also addresses the part played by presidential leadership in helping to legitimise the regimes of the new countries.
Offering an insight into presidential republics across Latin America, Africa and the Ex-soviet union, this text is a seminal work on political regimes and essential reading for all students and scholars with an interest in political institutions and leadership world-wide.
Edward Elgar,eduLIFE Lifelong Learning series For much of the twentieth century, women lagged considerably behind men in their educational attainment. However, in recent decades, young women have become an important source of human capital for labor markets in modern societies, as well as potential competitors to the male workforce.
This book asks whether or not women have been able to convert their educational success into gains on the labor market. The expert contributors address the topic on a comparative level with discussions centred on gendered school-to-work transitions and gendered labor market outcomes. Thereafter they analyze the country-specific implications of the gender redress from a wide range of countries including the USA, Russia and Australia.
Oxford University Press,Collected courses of the Academy of European Law, AEL How can we guarantee a right to life or a right to health without also guaranteeing a decent environment in which to exercise these rights? It is becoming increasingly obvious that a high quality environment is key to the fundamental human rights of life and health, and associated rights such as the right to clean water, adequate housing, and food. This book canvasses a range of law and policy issues concerning human rights and the environment.
ECPR Press,Studies in European political science Context is crucial to understanding the causes of political violence and the form it takes. This book examines how time, space and supportive milieux decisively shape the pattern and pace of such violence.
They encompass a wide range of types of violence, from separatist guerrillas through Marxist insurgents and Islamist militants to nationalist insurrectionists and the distinctive forms of urban violence that have emerged at the boundary between crime and politics.
Chapters offer new theoretical perspectives on the decisive importance of the spatial and temporal contexts, and supportive milieux, in which parties to conflict are embedded, and from which they draw strength. Cambridge University Press, In a broadly comparative, historical and quantitative analysis, this study reveals the unity of European electorates and party systems.
Investigating thirty countries in Western and Central-Eastern Europe over years of electoral history, the author shows the existence of common alignments and parallel waves of electoral change across the continent.
Europeanization appears through an array of indicators including cross-country deviation measures, uniform swings of votes, the correspondence between national arenas and European Parliament, as well as in the ideological convergence among parties of the same families. Based on a painstaking analysis of a large wealth of data, the study identifies the supra-national, domestic and diffusion factors at the origin of Europeanization.
Routledge,Routledge Studies in Egyptology, 2 Histories of Egyptology are increasingly of interest: Yet, particularly as Egypt undergoes a contested process of political redefinition, how do we write these histories, and what or who are they for? This volume addresses a variety of important themes, the historical involvement of Egyptology with the political sphere, the manner in which the discipline stakes out its professional territory, the ways in which practitioners represent Egyptological knowledge, and the relationship of this knowledge to the public sphere.
Histories of Egyptology provides the basis to understand how Egyptologists constructed their discipline. Yet the volume also demonstrates how they construct ancient Egypt, and how that construction interacts with much wider concerns: First published inbut c Private banking in Europe: Oxford University Press, Private bankers have been defined as owner-managers of their bank, irrespective of their type of activity, which could be in any field of banking, sometimes in conjunction with another one, especially commerce in the earlier periods.
Analysing the experiences of European private bankers from the early modern period to the early twenty-first century, this book starts by examining the slow emergence of specialist private bankers, largely from amongst those who provided commercial credit. Lastly, attention is paid to the decline of private bankers in the twentieth century — a protracted and uneven decline, combined with the persistence and even the enduring success of some segments of the profession. It concludes with the revival of private banking in the late twentieth century as a response to the development of a new market — the management of personal wealth.
Sichuan boatmen and their work songs, ss Leiden ; Boston: Brill,China studies, Vol. Chabrowski demonstrates how river workers constructed and interpreted their world, work, and gender in context of the dissolving social, cultural, and political orders.
Boatmen asserted their own values, bemoaned exploitation, and imagined their sexuality largely in order to cope with their low social status. Through studying the Sichuan boatmen we gain an insight into the ways in which twentieth-century nonindustrial Chinese workers imagined their place in the society and appropriated, without challenging them, the traditional values.
The transformation of Italian armed forces in comparative perspective: Ashgate,Military strategy and operational art, Global Governance Programme European armed forces have undergone deep changes in the past two decades.
Given the breadth of the debate and the size of transformations that took place, it is somewhat surprising that relatively few academic studies have directly dealt with changes in force structure of European militaries, and the Italian armed forces in particular. The focus of this book is the organizational dimension of the restructuring of armed forces through 3 different lenses: The key issues addressed relate to how these factors interact in shaping transformation.
Of particular interest is the theme of learning, which is how armed forces endogenize change in the short and long run. This study provides valuable insights into the extent to which armed forces manage to adapt to the emerging strategic and operational challenges they have to face and to illustrate the weight of institutional legacies, resource constraints and inter-organizational learning in shaping transformation. Focusing on the Italian case in comparative perspective and based on a large variety of military operations from airstrikes to peacekeeping and counterinsurgency, the book provides an innovative viewpoint on military transformation and significantly contributes to our understanding of contemporary security that is deeply shaped by the lessons learnt in Afghanistan, Lebanon, Iraq and Libya.
To date, more than two hundred external agreements and other instruments have been concluded in the name of ASEAN. Furthermore, it reveals that there are two basic meanings of ASEAN in its international dealings, which have important implications under international law: Centre for Europe, University of Warsaw ; Oficyna Wydawnicza ASPRA-JR, This book presents an interdisciplinary collection of essays providing analyses of global governance of safety and security in various policy fields, ranging from financial crises to cyber-security.
The volume offers essential insights about both European and international measures, normative frameworks and regulatory interventions aimed at controlling risks, preventing hazards and managing disasters. The book can attract attention of both academics and practitioners interested in global risk regulation and politics, public policy, as well as in EU and transnational governance. They are considered as three entities that are linked to each other through various policies, bonds and borders, with relations between any two of the three parties affecting the other side.
The contributors to this study explore different aspects of Israeli-Palestinian-European Union interconnectedness, including security cooperation; the movement of people; trade relations; information and telecommunication technology; legal borders defining different areas of jurisdiction; and normative borders in the context of conflict resolution and international law.
With borders representing the intersection between national and international law and politics, the EU also acquired some legal competences in this realm.

The resulting triple set of rules coincides with the growing disaggregation of the classical functions of borders. This state of affairs generates legal and procedural uncertainties and results in a growing ambiguity and lack of transparency, in terms of competences and accountability.
Oxford University Press,Oxford handbooks in politics and international relations The Oxford Handbook of Social Movements is an innovative volume that presents a comprehensive exploration of social movement studies, mapping the field and expanding it to examine the recent developments in cognate areas of studies, within and beyond sociology and political science.
This volume brings together the most distinguished social and political scientists working in this field, each writing thought-provoking essays in their area of expertise, and facilitates conversations between classic social movement agenda and lines of research. The Oxford Handbook of Social Movements discusses core theoretical perspectives, recent contributions from the field, and how patterns of macro social change may affect social movements, as well as suggesting what contributions social movement studies can give to other research areas in various disciplines.
Palgrave Macmillan,Palgrave studies in European political sociology This volume addresses issues of precariousness in a broad perspective, examining socio-economic transformations as well as the identity formation and political organizing of precarious people.

Bridging empirical research with social theory, this interdisciplinary collection illustrates how structural constraints and agency combine in the struggles over precariousness. The category of the precariat is not taken as given but is comparatively problematized as an effect of processes of precarization which proceed in distinct patterns in different contexts. This contextual knowledge is important in order to understand the life experiences of people in precarious situations.
In the final section of the book, civic action by people in precarious positions is presented as a definite and novel political outcome of the precarization process. Linking these different analytic levels, The New Social Division offers both a detailed and a wide-ranging interpretation of precarization as a multifarious but unique process, which is too often either reduced to the static class notion of precariat or totally dismissed as a chimera.
Polity press,[COSMOS] Recent years have seen an enormous increase in protests across the world in which citizens have challenged what they see as a deterioration of democratic institutions and the very civil, political and social rights that form the basis of democratic life. This timely new book addresses the anti-austerity social movements of which these protests form part, mobilizing in the context of a crisis of neoliberalism.
Donatella della Porta shows that, in order to understand their main facets in terms of social basis, strategy, and identity and organizational structures, we should look at the specific characteristics of the socioeconomic, cultural and political context in which they developed. The result is an important and insightful contribution to understanding a key issue of our times, which will be of interest to students and scholars of political and economic sociology, political science and social movement studies, as well as political activists.Den Harrow & Hitfinders - 2 Meet Me 2012 - Intervista Den Harrow - Radio 103
Youth labour market problems in Europe London: Centre for Economic Policy Research, Youth unemployment has been at the forefront of political and academic debate since the unfolding of the Great Recession inexploited to a greater or lesser extent by the contenders of most elections that have taken place across Europe since then.
Edited by Juan Dolado of the European University Institute, this eBook takes into account the relevance of policy lessons from recent experience to provide a clear analysis of the factors that affect the impact labour-market policies have on youth unemployment.
The contributors present a case-by-case analysis for a range of countries across Europe, spread both geographically and also by the divergent approaches taken. It covers countries with dual vocational training systems; dual labour markets; those where the ratio between youth and adult unemployment is notably high or low; and an overview of the recently launched Youth Guarantee programme.
Ashgate,The mobilization series on social movements, protest, and culture Popular protests are on the rise in China. However, since protesters rely on existing channels of participation and on patronage by elite backers, the state has been able to stymie attempts to generalize resistance and no large scale political movements have significantly challenged party rule.
Yet the Chinese state is not monolithic. Decentralization has increased the power of local authorities, creating space for policy innovations and opening up the political opportunity structure.
Popular protest in China — particularly in urban realm— not only benefits from the political fragmentation of the state, but also from the political communications revolution. The question of how and to what extent the internet can be used for mobilizing popular resistance in China is hotly debated.
The government, virtual social organizations, and individual netizens both cooperate and compete with each other on the web. This was the phenomenon that served as the true catalyst, resulting in an excellent living and working environment immersed within a splendid natural landscape, with bustling business and cultural centres just around the corner.
So what's the situation now? While nothing would appear to have changed with respect to the recent past, the advent of new technologies and low cost means of travel, combined with a radical overhaul of the local production activities, have forced us to re-evaluate the territory's mission and, consequently, the concept of residency as well.
Andrea Ciotti Just living, or living the "good life"? And Varese is right there, situated alongside two transit routes that are essential to continental trade: In light of the previously mentioned phenomena of anthropological and sociological change, significant changes are also taking place in terms of housing.
Important cultural transformations are taking root within our province. So what do we make of the numerous Art Nouveau style homes and magnificent bourgeois villas perched atop some of the most prominent points throughout our territory?
Nowadays, our ways of life should match our lifestyles: Let's live in the movement! We are all in movement And in this world, therefore, our homes are often transformed into scenes of modern living, featuring the trends of the times: The abandoned factories and workshops are being transformed into lofts, art studios, representative headquarters, centres of creativity, vibrant show rooms, museums, auditoriums, cultural centres, restaurants and bistros People are setting up their homes in deconsecrated churches and old water collection facilities made of reinforced concrete Our manner of living is steeped in design, from the most recent industrial products to various artisan crafts, perhaps purchased on a Sunday trip to the vintage market in Stockholm.
