This book illustrates how Africa's defence and security domains have been radically altered by drastic changes in world politics and local ramifications. First, the contributions of numerous authors highlight the transnational dimensions of counterterrorism and counterinsurgency in Africa and reveal the roles played by African states and regional organisations in the global war on terror. Second, the volume critically evaluates the emerging regional architectures of countering terrorism, insurgency, and organised violence on the continent through the African Union Counterterrorism Framework (AU-CTF) and Regional Security Complexes (RSC). Third, the book sheds light on the counterterrorism and counterinsurgency (CT-COIN) structures and mechanisms established by specific African states to contain, degrade, and eliminate terrorism, insurgency, and organised violence on the continent, particularly the successes, constraints, and challenges of the emerging CT-COIN mechanisms. Finally, the volume highlights the entry of non-state actors - such as civil society, volunteer groups, private security companies, and defence contractors - into the theatre of counterterrorism and counterinsurgency in Africa through volunteerism, community support for state-led CT-COIN Operations, and civil-military cooperation (CIMIC). This book will be of use to students and scholars of security studies, African studies, international relations, and terrorism studies, and to practitioners of development, defence, security, and strategy.

Devil Dealing: The Ryder Quartet Volume 1 , Hör...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

A top police investigative unit breaks an illegal gambling operation in the context of rampant police corruption and drug-fueled gangster violence in the city. Lead detective Jeremy Ryder is a physically powerful, quiet and meticulous investigator. His partner Navi Pillay is a small and exceptionally strong Tamil martial arts instructor, and she provides the speed and physical power to complement Ryder's incisive sleuthing abilities. Together with their other detective colleagues Ryder and Pillay crack open two interwoven criminal operations. There are two key villains. One is a corrupt murderous senior police officer at the heart of the illegal gambling operation and the other is a sinister and violent gangster dealing in drugs and murder. Each of them presides over lesser criminals and each of them controls separate domains of corruption until their paths cross in a spectacular climax. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Ian Patrick.

Elusive Peace
19,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

I first discovered the term Elusive Nature of Peace from an article by Israeli educator Daniel Bar- Tal. Why was Bar-Tal so tentative about peace education? His reasoning was a result of his years of developing peace education programs. He said: "Peace education is very different from most subjects given in schools. Because groups and individuals project onto the concept of peace education their particular vision of a desirable society, the means to achieve it and the school's role in this mission. The consequence of this personal projection is the very multifaceted state of peace education we see at present. Thus, in comparison with other domains of knowledge, peace education is, by nature, elusive." (Daniel Bar-Tal). I agree with Bar-Tal's conclusion based on my work as a peace education program developer and researcher. My work in northern Uganda has confirmed this elusive nature of peace. There were so many challenges impeding the implementation and acquisition of the concepts of peace in Uganda. These challenges and barriers to peace and understanding its nature, as you will find out within the pages of this book, are unfortunately becoming universal. This book explores the experiences and perceptions of Ugandan peace educators as they endeavoured to engage in the development and implementation of a locally developed curriculum. Geo-political and economic changes that are now affecting even countries that were once peaceful and democratic is making it extremely challenging to achieve general peace even within these nations. The late Kofi Annan, the seventh Secretary-General of the United Nations and a co- recipient of the 2001 Nobel Peace Prize, empathized with these changes that are making peace unattainable today. He wrote: "In some ways, the challenges are even more daunting than they were at the peak of the Cold War. Not only do we continue to face grave nuclear threats, but those threats are compounded by new weapons developments, new violence within states and new challenges to the rule of law." So, what do we do? Do we give up on educating students about peace? I don't think so. I still believe with Edward Everett, who said: "Education is a better safeguard of liberty than a standing army." I am confident that peace education is also the best safeguard of not only liberty but freedom, democracy and development of peaceable societies around the world.

The purpose of this research is to examine Post 9/11 Pakistan-Iran Relations with reference to politico-economic challenges and opportunities (2001-2010). First chapter highlights a clear introduction about my topic. In the starting of my thesis, it is mentioned that how two countries are characterized from the mutual antique, philological, legendary, ethnic sympathies and trade associations. Mutually adjoining domains are not destined organised due to their physical juxtaposition, the subterranean origin of relations are providing from communal principles and their corporate acceptance in the belief of Islam. It is calcified after independence both countries recognition to each other, both countries supporting each other in economic, systematically and governmentally in upright and immoral period. The Soviet Occupation of Afghanistan created draining on the two-pronged relations between two states. The two nations had' mutual goalmouth to encouraging concord and constancy in Afghanistan. The relation became worsened due to sectarian violence from the Taliban against Northern Alliance.

Why ethno-political violence has become absent ...
35,90 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Mozambique has, in her historical records, instances of mobilization and instrumentalization of ethnicity that resorted into ethno-political violence. This bloody reality was predominant during the struggle for independence from Portuguese colonial regime and was clearly perceived as a threat to the national liberation. As a result, the nationalist movement led by FRELIMO, which then became the ruling government, in the post-independence era, implemented policies at political and cultural domains to "demobilize ethnicity" in order to prevent the continuation of the ethno-political bloodshed. It became an imperative, first, to achieve the independence and then to preserve the survival of the state, which soon after independence was threatened by a protracted war. The political and cultural measures contributed significantly for vanishing of ethno-political violence, but, so far, this fact has been academically overlooked. Thus, differently from studies which explain why ethno-political violence occurred, this is the first qualitative research that focuses on the reasons for the absence of ethno-political violence in Mozambique.

The growth of modernisation in a society is intimately connected to the growth of legal evolutions related to criminalisation. While modernisation expands the boundaries of tolerance in an open society, it also expands the boundaries of crime and criminalisation. As modernisation expands on a global scale, the process of redefining crime, criminalisation, and victimisation also occurs on a global scale. In the modern societies of the West, the advance of modern law and justice and the progress of the notions of human rights have expanded the boundaries of freedom. They have also expanded the boundaries of criminalisation in a number of social, cultural, political, and economic domains. One of the major areas of criminalisation that has rapidly expanded with modernisation and globalisation, particularly in the West, is domestic violence. During the last 30 years, a series of laws have evolved in these societies that criminalise a wide variety of behaviours related to domestic violence. A comparative study of legislative developments on domestic violence in the United States and India suggests that, in each, a relatively homogenous set of laws against domestic violence has evolved.

Peter Greenaway and the Baroque
79,00 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

The work of Peter Greenaway poses a complex challenge since it ranges from films to artworks and forces the limits usually accepted for both domains. The themes of his work, such as death, violence and sexuality, mixed with games and different kinds of measuring, can be polemical. Furthermore, the treatment that they are given eschews well-known solutions, thus impelling the viewer to play an active role. The Baroque is proposed as a key to relating different aspects of Greenaway s work that would otherwise seem chaotic and incoherent. The term Baroque refers to a historical period, but also to a topic that has been given attention by both art and film critics who do not limit it exclusively to the 17th century. This book identifies the basic strategies of Greenaway s work that resulted in different formal and thematic manifestations related to what has been conventionally qualified as a Baroque aesthetic. Film and artwork are analyzed together, with intention of showing how similar conceptions of an idea can be translated to different domains. The book ventures to decipher Greenaway s puzzles while assuming that critical writing can be an engaging game.

Why Ethiopian Remains Poor
49,00 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Ethiopia has been in turmoil, conflicts, famines and poverty have been its hallmark. Despite the changes in regimes in 1974 and 1991 respectively, Ethiopia s woes continue unabated. Still, colossal poverty prevails, society is deprived of its basic human and political rights, a one man authoritarian rule prevails, sporadic famine strikes and the government frequently begs for food aid even under a bumper harvest, ethnic groups are marginalized, violence is unleashed against women and the country has not moved forward an inch. This book unravels why all this is still happening in Ethiopia and blames the political governance. It synergizes a poverty analysis with prevalence of unfreedom and the state of the domains of sustainable development and explains why civil society could still not emerge. It gives background to the rise of the discourse of ethnicity in Ethiopia and deconstructs the policies of the ruling EPRDF and analyses the development challenges that Ethiopia faces and examines the government s performance. In a nutshell, it explains Why Ethiopia Remains Poor.
