This book builds a theoretical approach to the intractable problem of theory/practice in international relations (IR) and develops tools to study how theory and practice ‘hang together’ in international security. Drawing on Pierre Bourdieu’s political sociology, the book argues that theory and practice take part in struggles over basic understandings (doxa) in international fields through what the book calls doxic battles. In these battles e.g. scientific facts, military hardware and social networks are mobilised as weapons in a fight for recognition. NATO’s transformation and fight for survival and the rapidly growing number of think tanks in European security in the 1990s is taken as an example of these processes. The book studies a variety of sources such as funding to science programmes in Europe; think tanks and research centres in European security; NATO’s relations with the EU, the WEU and the OSCE; and the mobilization of theory at crucial points in the transformation process. Theory as Practice and Capital will be of interest to students and scholars of international relations, security studies and critical theory.

This book presents an overview and evaluation of contemporary research in international political sociology (IPS). Bringing together leading scholars from many disciplines and diverse geographical backgrounds, it provides unprecedented coverage of the key concepts and research through which IPS has opened up new ways of thinking about international relations. It also considers some of the consequences of such innovations for established forms of social and political analysis. It thus takes the reader on an intellectual journey engaging with questions about boundaries and limits among the many interrelated worlds in which we now live, the ways we conceptualise them, and how we continually reshape boundaries of identities, spaces, authorities and disciplinary knowledge. The volume is organized three sections: Lines, Intersections and Directions. The first section examines some influences that led to the formation of the project of IPS and how it has opened up avenues of research beyond the limits of an international relations discipline shaped within political science. The second section explores some key concepts as well as a series of heated discussions about power and authority, practices and governmentality, performativity and reflexivity. The third section explores some of the transversal topics of research that have been pursued within IPS, including inequality, migration, citizenship, the effect of technology on practices of security, the role of experts and expertise, date-driven surveillance, and the relation between mobility, power and inequality. This book will be an essential source of reference for students and across the social sciences.

Moderne Gesellschaften beruhen auf dem Selbstverständnis, Gewalt einzuhegen, zugleich sind das Recht und die Pflicht zur Gewaltanwendung Grundprinzipien moderner Staatlichkeit. Gewalt, Ordnung und Staatlichkeit sind demnach konstitutiv aufeinander bezogen, doch ihr prekäres Verhältnis erscheint zu Beginn des 21. Jahrhunderts umstrittener denn je. Konzepte wie Rettungsfolter, gerechte Kriege, Ausnahme oder Sicherheit verweisen zugleich auf neue Rationalitäten staatlicher Gewalt. Der Band bietet interdisziplinäre Perspektiven auf historische Kontinuitäten und Brüche staatlicher Neuordnungen von Gewalt in der Gegenwart. Mit Beiträgen von David Garland, Christian Geulen, Sven Kramer, Susanne Krasmann, Alf Lüdtke, Jürgen Martschukat, Andrew W. Neal, Günter Riederer, Ruth Stanley und Anja Feth, Frank Schumacher, Klaus Weinhauer sowie einen bisher im Deutschen unveröffentlichten Text von Judith Butler.

This book examines the ways in which long-term processes of state-formation limit the possibilities for short-term political projects of statebuilding. Using process-oriented approaches, the contributing authors explore what happens when conscious efforts at statebuilding ‘meet’ social contexts, and are transformed into daily routines. In order to explain their findings, they also analyse the temporally and spatially broader structures of world society which shape the possibilities of statebuilding. Statebuilding and State-Formation includes a variety of case studies from post-conflict societies in Africa, Asia and Europe, as well as the headquarters and branch offices of international agencies. Drawing on various theoretical approaches from sociology and anthropology, the contributors discuss external interventions as well as self-led statebuilding projects. This edited volume is divided into three parts: Part I: State-Formation, Violence and Political Economy Part II: Governance, Legitimacy and Practice in Statebuilding and State-Formation Part III: The International Self – Statebuilders’ Institutional Logics, Social Backgrounds and Subjectivities The book will be of great interest to students of statebuilding and intervention, war and conflict studies, international security and IR.

Preface It’s a great honor to notify you that I’ve been thoroughly writing this academic interdisciplinary access book for people to learn easily the interdisciplinary of security, politics, economics and diplomacy. This is one of the easiest and the best books which you can learn the meaningful of good governance in a country, and it talks more about optimistic governance for interdisciplinary studies in security, politics, economics and diplomacy. The best mission and vision to help and solve any security, politics, economics or diplomatic issues are the concern of the global citizens. Academically, I used the easiest way of “Teach yourself techniques,” in this interdisciplinary book for learning the security, politics, economics and diplomacy in the world. If you wish to be a leader in an institution or in your country then you should study it from this book. It’s not been easy to use simplified interdisciplinary academic book of security, politics, economics and diplomacy in one book that combines theoretical and practical applications in the ancient or the contemporary world. Never loosen your will to learn security, politics, economics and diplomacy if you want to be a leader because it’s the only way that can allow you to govern good governance in a leadership. What you understand in this interdisciplinary book, you’ll have to apply it to everyday life for good, visionary, missionary and optimistic governance in order to maintain law, order and prosperity in your community or country. As we grow older then we’re also learning more about worldly knowledge than our religious knowledge, and it’s good to study both of the combined knowledge during your lifetime Knowledge is learning and it’s a boundary limitation to humanity but only the Creator knows it where knowledge starts or ends completely!

This volume brings together scholars from different fields to explore the power, consequences and everyday practices of security expertise. Expertise mediates between different forms of knowledge: scientific and technological, legal, economic and political knowledge. This book offers the first systematic study of security expertise and opens up a productive dialogue between science and technology studies and security studies to investigate the character and consequences of this expertise. In security theory, the study of expertise is crucial to understanding whose knowledge informs security making and to reflect on the impact and responsibility of security analysis. In science and technology studies, the study of security politics adds a challenging new case to the agenda of research on expertise and policy. The contributors investigate cases such as academic security studies, security think tanks, the collaboration between science, anthropology and the military, transnational terrorism, and the ethical consequences of security expertise. Together they challenge our understanding of how expertise works and what consequences it has for security politics and international relations. This book will be of particular interest to students of critical security studies, sociology, science and technology studies, and IR/security studies in general.

Globalisation and complex Europeanisation are two significant challenges currently influencing the restructure of the European nation-state, and redefining political power. For this volume, first-rate European scholars look at the consequences of these and other challenges faced by European societies. Contributions revisit traditional objects of political science – state sovereignty, civil society and citizenship – mixing sophisticated empirical analyses with methodological and conceptual innovations including field theory, multiple correspondence analysis, and the study of space sets. Combining qualitative and quantitative research techniques, and macro- and micro-levels, chapters have in common a contextual analysis of politics through scrutiny of configurations of groups, representations and perceptions. A transnational perspective is the common thread linking every study in this volume, which seeks to avoid methodological nationalism.

Der Geist des Kapitalismus verdankt seinen Triumph der Fähigkeit, die gegen ihn gerichtete Kritik aufzugreifen und zu verarbeiten. So hat das Maß der persönlichen Autonomie am Arbeitsplatz in den kapitalistischen Produktionsformen der Gegenwart zwar erheblich zugenommen, eine Forderung, die die künstlerische Avantgarde der 68er ins Zentrum ihrer Kritik an der Allianz zwischen Bürokratie und Kapital gestellt hatte. Dies geschah allerdings um den Preis der Berufs sicher heit, der Planbarkeit von Karrieren, verlässlicher Strukturen. Soziale Desintegrationsprozesse auf der kollektiven und erhöhter psychischer Druck auf der Ebene des einzelnen Individuums sind Folgen dieser Entwicklung. Einstweilen bleibt die Kritik an diesem neuen Kapitalismus machtlos, weil sie die Gegenwart an vergangenen Idealen misst und die sozialen Konflikte der Gegenwart mit Begriffen zu beschreiben versucht, die in der ökonomischen Realität des 21. Jahrhunderts keinen Sinn mehr ergeben. Neue Interpretationsmuster aber werden den Legitimations druck auf den Kapitalismus erhöhen – insbesondere dort, wo wachsende Gerechtigkeitsdefizite augenscheinlich werden. Der Geist des Kapitalismus wird seine Antwort nicht schuldig bleiben. Luc Boltanski ist Forschungsdirektor an der École des hautes études en sciences sociales, Paris. Ève Chiapello ist wissenschaftliche Mitarbeiterin an der École des hautes études commerciales, Paris.

This new textbook surveys new and emergent methods for doing research in critical security studies, thereby filling a large gap in the literature of this emerging field. New or critical security studies is growing as a field, but still lacks a clear methodology; the diverse range of the main foci of study (culture, practices, language, or bodies) means that there is little coherence or conversation between these four schools or approaches. In this ground-breaking collection of fresh and emergent voices, new methods in critical security studies are explored from multiple perspectives, providing practical examples of successful research design and methodologies. Drawing upon their own experiences and projects, thirty-three authors address the following turns over the course of six comprehensive sections: Part I: Research Design Part II: The Ethnographic Turn Part III: The Practice Turn Part IV: The Discursive Turn Part V: The Corporeal Turn Part VI: The Material Turn This book will be essential reading for upper-level students and researchers in the field of critical security studies, and of much interest to students of sociology, ethnography and IR.

Across the globe, from mega-cities to isolated resource enclaves, the provision and governance of security takes place within assemblages that are de-territorialized in terms of actors, technologies, norms and discourses. They are embedded in a complex transnational architecture, defying conventional distinctions between public and private, global and local. Drawing on theories of globalization and late modernity, along with insights from criminology, political science and sociology, Security Beyond the State maps the emergence of the global private security sector and develops a novel analytical framework for understanding these global security assemblages. Through in-depth examinations of four African countries – Kenya, Nigeria, Sierra Leone and South Africa – it demonstrates how global security assemblages affect the distribution of social power, the dynamics of state stability, and the operations of the international political economy, with significant implications for who gets secured and how in a global era.

Ein neues Jahrtausend hat begonnen, das Jahrtausend der großen politischen Einheiten. Amerika gegen China, Indien gegen die muslimische Welt, Russland gegen den Westen. Globale Supermächte treffen aufeinander und versuchen ihre Interessen und kulturellen Vorstellungen durchzusetzen oder aber zu verteidigen. In diesem Kampf der Giganten steht das heutige Europa zerstritten und uneins da. Diejenigen, die sich selbst „gute Europäer" nennen, geben dafür oft den europäischen Nationalstaaten die Schuld. Denn diese wehren sich immer wieder gegen eine weitere Zentralisierung der Europäischen Union und stehen damit dem Wunsch vieler EU-Bürokraten nach einem europäischen Zentralstaat im Wege. In seinem Buch „Europa der Vaterländer" wirft Markus Willinger genau diesen EU-Bürokraten Kurzsichtigkeit und Einfallslosigkeit vor. Er erklärt, dass ein europäischer Staat angesichts der kulturellen, sprachlichen und wirtschaftlichen Vielfalt Europas weder möglich noch wünschenswert sei. Anstatt Staatsmodelle aus dem Ausland zu übernehmen, müssten die Europäer aufgrund ihrer Einzigartigkeit eine ganz eigene Form des Zusammenlebens finden. Die Europäische Union verwirft Willinger als ein gescheitertes Modell, das der Einheit Europas nicht nützt, sondern dieser sogar schadet. Dem Autor zufolge muss die Europäische Union so schnell wie möglich aufgelöst und durch einen Staatenbund freier, europäischer Nationalstaaten, also durch ein Europa der Vaterländer, ersetzt werden. In 32 scharfen Kapiteln erklärt Willinger wie ein solches Europa aussehen könnte, und wie es im Gegensatz zur heutigen EU oder eines europäischen Staates organisiert wäre. Dabei ist dieses Buch keineswegs eine trockene Analyse. Aus jedem Wort und jedem Satz spricht die Leidenschaft des Autors und seine Liebe zu dem, was er das wahre Europa nennt. Willinger kritisiert die EU-Bürokraten und ihr politisches Scheitern rücksichtslos und zögert dabei nicht auch harte Worte zu gebrauchen. Er beschränkt sich dabei aber jedoch nicht auf simple Kritik, sondern erstellt selbst die Leitlinien für ein neues Europa. Markus Willinger, geboren 1992, studierte Politikwissenschaft und Geschichte. Er ist Mitarbeiter beim international tätigen Verlag Arktos Media und veröffentliche im Jahr 2013 sein politisches Manifest „Die identitäre Generation", welches bislang in 6 Sprachen übersetzt wurde.
