              Finding Soldiers of Peace: Three Dilemmas for UN Peacekeeping Missions

              Finding Soldiers of Peace: Three Dilemmas for UN Peacekeeping Missions (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              By Uzonyi, Gary

              The United Nations, which lacks its own peacekeeping force, faces three dilemmas when organizing a peacekeeping mission: convincing member states to contribute troops, persuading states to deploy troops quickly, and securing a troop commitment long enough to achieve success. The ...key to overcoming these challenges, Gary Uzonyi argues, is emphasizing the connection between peacekeeping and slowing the flow of refugees across borders. Finding Soldiers of Peace makes the case for this approach, which balances states' self-interests with the United Nations' goal of civilian protection. Through an analysis of post-Cold War UN peacekeeping missions, particularly interventions in Mali and Sudan, Uzonyi shows how member states often tie civilian protection rhetoric to efforts to keep conflict-driven refugees from crossing into their territory. Conventional wisdom holds that member states primarily engage in peacekeeping for payment or humanitarian reasons. Uzonyi proves otherwise, helping scholars and practitioners more accurately predict which member states are most likely to send support, where states may send assistance, when they might become involved, the size of their contribution, and their timetable for leaving. His research promotes practical strategies for the organization and execution of future missions that ensure member states stay invested in the outcome. A data-rich exploration of the UN response to humanitarian crises, Finding Soldiers of Peace shows how policymakers and practitioners can better strategize the execution of UN peacekeeping missions among diverse, and even contentious, stakeholders.

              C'Est Ce Qu'on Dit: Deuxiaeme Annaee de Franocais 2

              C'Est Ce Qu'on Dit: Deuxiaeme Annaee de Franocais 2 (Other book format / Other)

              By Grangier, Claude; Other Di Vito, Nadine O'Connor; Berg, Marie

              C'est ce qu'on dit is a second-year (intermediate-level) companion textbook to the beginning-level textbook Comme on dit, and as such follows the same basic format and principles: students work with hundreds of samples of authentic, nonscripted spoken and written French and are l...ed in a step-by-step manner from rule discovery to the acquisition of speaking, reading, writing, and listening competence. The workbook format and inductive presentation of grammar guarantee a completely student-centered approach, as student input is required in each and every exercise. Given the more advanced focus of C'est ce qu'on dit, however, exercises lead students to expand their competence not just of conversational registers but of formal written and spoken registers, as well. Programs that take advantage of the full range of speaking, listening, reading, writing, grammar, and cultural expansion activities in C'est ce qu'on dit will find it to be a robust standalone program; however, in the event that programs prefer to include an outside content component, suggestions are offered in the preface and throughout each unit for ways to free up classroom time. By the end of C'est ce qu'on dit, an average student can be expected to have attained the competency objectives described as Advanced-Low on the ACTFL proficiency scale and as a B1 level on the Common European Framework scale (CEFR).

              Conflict-related sexual violence has transitioned from a neglected human rights issue to an unambiguous security concern on the agendas of powerful states and the UN Security Council. Through interviews and primary-source evidence, Crawford investigates the reasons for this chang...e and the implications of the securitization of sexual violence.

              Cuban Spanish Dialectology: Variation, Contact, and Change (Hardback)

              This edited volume aims to provide a comprehensive collection of current research on Cuban Spanish linguistics from different theoretical perspectives and linguistic areas. It features studies from four major areas relative to Cuban Spanish dialectology: phonological and phonetic... variation, morphosyntactic approaches, sociolinguistic perspectives, and heritage language acquisition. Due to Cuba's relative isolation since the mid-20th century, there has been little empirical research on this Spanish dialect. This volume seeks to fill that gap in the literature, conceiving of Cuban Spanish as both the Spanish spoken in contemporary Cuba as well as that spoken by Cuban immigrants to the United States. The Cuban Spanish dialect has intrinsic characteristics common to other Caribbean Spanish dialects, including Dominican and Puerto Rican Spanish, but differs from these and other Caribbean varieties in many respects, crucially in its intonation and lexicon. Furthermore, Cuban Spanish has a high linguistic prestige in the US compared to other Spanish dialects for various socioeconomic, educational, historical, and political reasons. Thus Cuban Spanish spoken in the US is worth examining in terms of language contact and change, intergenerational language maintenance and transmission, and heritage language acquisition, among other issues.
