              Policing and the Politics of Order-Making
               

              Policing and the Politics of Order-Making (Hardback)

              Edited by Albrecht, Peter; Kyed, Helene Maria

              • RRP: $294.00

              • To Order

              This anthology explores the political nature of making order through policing activities in densely populated spaces across Africa, Asia and Latin America. Based on ethnographic research, the chapters analyze this complex with respect to marginalized young men in Haiti, community... policing members and national politicians in Swaziland as well as other individual and collective actors engaged in policing and politics in Sierra Leone, Mozambique, South Africa, East Timor, Indonesia, the Philippines, Mexico and Bolivia. What these contexts have in common is a plurality of order-making practices. Not one institution monopolizes the means of violence or a de facto sovereign position to do so. A number of interests are played out simultaneously, entailing re-negotiations over the very definition of what 'order' is. How and by whom a particular order is enforced is contested, at times violently so, and is therefore inherently political. In the existing literature on weak states, legal pluralism and policing in the Global South it is seldom made explicit that making order is a route to power and positions of political decision-making. It is this gap in the literature that this anthology fills, as it analyses the politics at stake in processes of order-making.

              Justice Reform and Development: Rethinking Donor Assistance to Developing and Transitional Countries (Hardback)

              By Hammergren, Linn A.

              This book examines First World assistance to justice or rule of law reforms in developing and transitional societies, arguing that its purported failure is vastly exaggerated, largely because of unrealistic expectations as to what could be accomplished. Change nonetheless is need...ed if the programs are to continue and would be best based on targeting specific performance problems, incorporation of donor countries' experience with their own reforms, and greater attention to relevant research. Justice Reform and Development explores the objectives pursued in donor programs, the methods used to advance them, and the underlying assumptions and strategies. It emphasizes the unexpected and sometimes unpleasant consequences of ignoring not only political and societal constraints but also advances in our technical approaches to performance improvement, the one area where the First World has a comparative advantage. The geographic scope of the work is broad, incorporating examples from Eastern and Central Europe, Latin America, Africa, and the Asia-Pacific region as well as from several First World nations. While contributing to an on-going debate among practitioners and academics involved in justice programs, this book will also be accessible to readers with little exposure to the topics, especially advanced undergraduate and graduate students in law, political science and areas studies.

              Legal thought and practice in Latin America has changed dramatically in the last two decades. First: new constitutions or constitutional reforms have marked the transition to democracy of the vast majority of the countries in the region and introduced fundamental institutional in...novations, such as judicial review. Second: processes of globalization have had profound impacts on Latin American law. On the one hand, together with the liberalization of national economies, there has been an intensive importation of legal ideas and institutions - from the commercial and financial regulations promoted by the World Bank and World Trade Organization, to the adversarial criminal justice system inspired by the United States. On the other hand, the globalization of human rights has had a fundamental impact - as demonstrated by the multiplication of laws, institutions, and public debates about the rights of groups that historically faced discrimination, and about the punishment of serious human rights violations committed by past or present authoritarian governments. After more than twenty years, these and other processes have not only radically altered the institutional landscape of the region, but also produced academic and practical innovations that are of global interest. Law and Society in Latin America offers the first systematic assessment by leading Latin American legal scholars of these momentous transformations, painting a portrait of the new Latin American legal thought for an international audience.

              State Violence and Human Rights: State Officials in the South
               

              State Violence and Human Rights: State Officials in the South (Paperback)

              State Violence and Human Rights addresses how legal practices -- rooted in global human rights discourse or local demands -- take hold in societies where issues of state violence remain to be resolved. Attempts to make societies accountable to human rights norms regularly draw on... international legal conventions governing state conduct. As such, interventions tend to be based on inherently normative assumptions about conflict, justice, rights and law, and so often fail to take into consideration the reality of local circumstances, and in particular of state institutions and their structures of authority. Against the grain of these analyses, State Violence and Human Rights takes as its point of departure the fact that law and authority are contested. Grounded in the recognition that concepts of rights and legal practices are not fixed, the contributors to this volume address their contestation 'in situ'; as they focus on the everyday practices of state officials, non-state authorities and reformers. Addressing how state representatives -- the police officer, the prison officer, the ex-combatant militia member, the hangman and the traditional leader -- have to negotiate the tensions between international legal imperatives, the expectations of donors, the demands of institutions, as well as their own interests, this volume thus explores how legal discourses are translated from policy into everyday practice.

              Multinational Integration, Cultural Identity and Regional Self-Government assesses the current state of the international theory and practice of autonomy in order to pursue the possibility for regional self-government in Tibet. Initiated by a workshop, and roundtable with politic...al representatives from different autonomous regions, including His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama, this book brings together a group of distinguished international scholars in order to offer a much-needed enquiry into solutions to the Tibetan quest for substantial autonomy. Examining the Chinese framework of regional self-government, along with key international cases of autonomy in Europe, North America and Asia, the contributors to this volume offer a comprehensive context for the consideration of both Tibetan demands and Chinese worries. Their insights will be invaluable to academics practitioners, diplomats, civil servants, government representatives, international organisations, and NGOs interested in the theory and practice of autonomy, as well as those concerned with the future of Tibet.
