ON BUILDING ON PEACE BUILDING ON PEACE BUILDING ON PEACE BUILDING ON PEACE BUILDING ON PEACE BUILDING PEACE SOCIAL & POLITICAL SCIENCES

Michael von der Schulenburg

On Building Peace Rescuing the Nation-state and Saving the United Nations Twenty-five years after the end of the Cold War, new geopolitical changes have eroded Western dominance, and in its place has emerged a multipolar world encompassing a number of global and regional players. At the same time, intrastate conflicts have begun replacing interstate wars as the major threat to world peace and security, causing new challenges for diplomats and other peacekeepers accustomed to focusing only on the relations between countries. On Building Peace explores these issues and demonstrates the vital need for international organisations such as the United Nations to turn a new eye to events taking place within nationstates. Michael von der Schulenburg argues for the development of internationally accepted principles and rules for intervening in intrastate conflicts, including those caused by corrupt governments or militant groups. Ultimately, the book offers a groundbreaking approach to international politics and diplomacy, as well as new tools for the creation of effective peacebuilding strategies. Michael von der Schulenburg has held positions within the United Nations, including assistant secretary-general, for more than thirty years.

Nanno Kleiterp

Banking for a Better World Nanno Kleiterp in Conversation with Marijn Wiersma When we look at all the challenges facing the world, including inequality, population migration, and climate change, we can see a role for development banking in nearly all of them. But will that role be played for good or ill? This book brings together two people who collectively draw on their forty-five years of experience in that world to argue that development banking can ‒ and must ‒ play a constructive role. We only need to read the news to find public outrage at tales of short-sighted greed in the financial world. But what happens when banks invest in long-term sustainability? Readers will find a fascinating example in the journey of the Dutch development bank FMO. At times global in perspective, at other moments intimately personal, Banking for a Better World interweaves candid anecdotes with development history, as well as banking lessons with client interviews, to deliver a powerful argument for a business model that generates profit through impact, and impact through profit. This is an important and accessible must-read for anyone involved in banking, business, policy making, and civil society as a whole. Banking for a Better World challenges us to start finding overlaps between our own lives and global issues and to bridge the distance between our personal needs and those of our planet. Nanno Kleiterp has worked for FMO since 1987 as an investment manager; chief financial officer; chief investment officer; and, most recently, chief executive officer.

Re:Thinking Europe Thoughts on Europe: Past, Present and Future What is Europe? This concise, yet immensely complex, question, more pressing than ever during this time of intense political crisis ‒ the worst since the process of European integration began in the 1950s ‒ sets the stage for this volume. Bringing together international thinkers and scholars from different generations, including political scientist Ivan Krastev, historian Philipp Blom, and others, the essays engage with the paradoxes and puzzles of European identity, ultimately rethinking the continent’s culture, history, present, and future.

Mathieu Segers is professor of international relations and European integration at Utrecht University.

World of Difference A Moral Perspective on Social Inequality Public debates tend to see social inequality as resulting from individual decisions people make, for instance with respect to their education or lifestyle. Solutions are often sought in supporting individuals to make better choices. This neglects the importance of social groups and communities in determining individual outcomes. A moral perspective on social inequality questions the fairness of insisting on individual responsibilities, when members of some groups systematically receive fewer opportunities than others. The essays in this book have been prepared by experts from different disciplines, ranging from philosophy to engineering, and from

economics to epidemiology. On the basis of recent scientific insights, World of Difference examines how group memberships impact on individual outcomes in four key domains: health, education and work, migration, and the environment. This offers a new moral perspective on social inequality, which policy makers tend to neglect. Naomi Ellemers is a social psychologist, and distinguished university professor at Utrecht University.

Bert van der Zwaan

Higher Education in 2040 A Global Approach Since the Middle Ages, universities have displayed impressive resourcefulness in their ability to adapt to the changing dynamics and demands of their times. But in the last fifty years, the landscape of higher education − with the emergence of online and mass education, skyrocketing tuition, and a controversial system for ranking institutions − has begun evolving so rapidly and profoundly that the concept of the university now needs to be rethought. This book explores the future of modern higher education by looking at it on a global scale. Bert van der Zwaan compares European developments with those taking place in North America and Asia to argue that the phoenix of an entirely new type of university will rise from the ashes of the classical system: less tied to buildings and set locations, the new university will embed itself more deeply in

society by offering innovative forms of digital knowledge and making customized teaching available on demand. A timely discussion of a topic whose worldwide impact continues to grow, this is essential reading for anyone concerned about the state of higher education − both for today’s students and in the decades to come. Bert van der Zwaan is a palaeonthologist and professor of Biogeology, and is the President and member of the Excecutive Board of Utrecht University since 2011.

The Pursuit of Justice is the first book to examine three separate instances of soldiers risking their lives during wartime to protest injustices being perpetrated by military authorities: within the United States Army during the American Civil War, the Australian Imperial Force during World War I, and the British Army during World War II. Nathan Wise explores the three events in detail and reveals how − despite the vast differences in military forces, wars, regions of the world, and eras − the soldiers involved all shared a common sense of justice and responded in remarkably similar ways.

Nathan Wise is a senior lecturer in public and applied history at the University of New England in Australia. He is the author of Anzac Labour: Workplace Cultures in the Australian Imperial Force during the First World War.

A Moral-Sociological Perspective on Social Movements We’re in an era of ever increasing attention to animal rights, and activism around the issue is growing more widespread and prominent. In this volume, Jonas Lindblom and Kerstin Jacobsson use the animal rights movement in Sweden to offer the first analysis of social movements through the lens of Emil Durkheim’s sociology of morality. By positing social movements as essentially a moral phenomenon ‒ and morality itself as a social fact ‒ the book complements more structural, cultural, or strategic action–based approaches, even as it also demonstrates the continuing value of classical sociological approaches to understanding contemporary society.

Animal Rights Activism

Animal Rights Activism

PROTEST AND SOCIAL MOVEMENTS

Animal Rights Activism: A Moral-Sociological Perspective on Social Movements develops a novel theoretical perspective on social movements. For the first time, Durkheim’s sociology of morals is made productive for social movement theorizing. Based on an original reading of Durkheim as well as a study of animal rights activists in Sweden, the authors advance new theoretical approaches to moral reflexivity, emotion work, secular religion and deviance management in social movements. The animal rights movement challenges dominant moral conceptions in a more fundamental way than perhaps any other contemporary social movement. The book explores the consequences for activists of this outsider position in the moral order. Animal Rights Activism fills a gap in the social movement literatures by conceiving of social movements as essentially moral phenomena and morality as a social fact; as such, morality both enables and constrains the action that activists can pursue. This perspective complements the structural, cultural and strategic action-inspired approaches that dominate the field of social movement analysis. In addition, the book richly illustrates how classical sociological theory can be applied in innovative ways to better understand contemporary societies.

Jacobsson & Lindblom

Recent years have seen a new development in the growth and spread of popular protest: protests that began as local, homogeneous events ‒ such as Occupy Wall Street or the protests of the Arab Spring ‒ quickly left their original locations and local specificity behind and became global. This book looks at the development of this wave of protests, with an eye on protests against austerity and neoliberal economic policies, and offers a global view, covering events in Turkey, Brazil, Venezuela, South Africa, Bosnia, Bulgaria, Ukraine, and other locations.

Andreas Pettenkofer is a sociologist at the Max Weber Centre of the University of Erfurt in Germany.

Animal Rights Activism

All activists must begin from a place of uncertainty: they must agitate for change without knowing their chances for success or what price they might pay for their efforts. Thus, any comprehensive account of activism must be able to explain how it moves beyond the initial challenge of this unknown. Radical Protest blends social movement research and social theoretical debates with a powerful critique of currently dominant theoretical approaches to identify the social mechanisms that enable activist movements.

Migrant Penalties in Educational Achievement Second-Generation Immigrants in Western Europe

Second-Generation Immigrants in Western Europe The integration of second-generation immigrants has proved to be a major challenge for Europe in recent years. Though these people are born in their host nations, they often experience worse social and economic outcomes than other citizens. This volume focuses on one particular, important challenge: the less successful educational outcomes of second-generation migrants. Looking at data from seventeen European nations, Camilla Borgna shows that migrant penalties in educational achievement exist in each one ‒ but that, unexpectedly, the penalties tend to be greater in countries in which socio-economic inequalities in education are generally more modest, a finding that should prompt reconsideration of a number of policy approaches. Camilla Borgna is a research fellow at the Berlin Social Science Center.

How Economic Worldviews Shape Social Policy Choices in Times of Crisis

For nearly forty years now, governments in rich democracies have been shifting labour market risks from the state and employers to employees, cutting the generosity of social programmes even as they have tightened restrictions on eligibility. This book analyses those changes in eighteen countries and shows that the most important factor in explaining whether cuts are made is the economic world view of a particular government. While the economic pressures that are typically pointed to as the causes of these reforms do exist, Alexander Horn shows that they are nonetheless secondary to ideology.

In recent decades, and particularly since the financial crisis, continental Europe has seen an increasing gap between those workers who have well-protected, good-paying jobs with strong benefits and those who work lowerquality, nonstandard jobs, or who have no regular work at all. This situation would seem to call for increased spending on the social safety net, yet governments throughout the region have instead been turning to austerity. In the face of that reality, the options for helping disadvantaged workers are to extend coverage through re-allocating the benefits given to higher-level workers, maintain the benefits of the well-off as the number of outsiders continues to grow, or simply ignore the problem. This book asks why different nations have taken different tacks in handling ‒ or not handling ‒ this problem.
