The globalisation of an idea
Kelly Kollman

SSU recognition (marriage v. registered partnership v. domestic cohabitants)? The first half of the chapter focuses on the question of convergent policy change. After describing the wave of SSU policy adoptions, I trace the development of a soft law norm for same-sex relationship recognition in the European polity and demonstrate the ways in which this norm has shaped, influenced and ultimately catalysed these national SSU policy adoptions. In particular, interview and document evidence with policy elites and activists at the European and national levels illustrates

that which is external as property, or by recognizing that which is external as a similarly engulfing or sovereign entity. In no way do I wish to deny that the proliferation of democratic decision-making processes may indeed be the best option available for interhuman1 life in the current world order. But the necessity of, and cries for, democracy today need not, and indeed should not, impede its critical investigation. Particularly at issue here is democracy’s fundamental tenet of mutual recognition. While foundational for freedom and self-determination, mutual

International socialisation across the pond?

This chapter examines the extent to which processes of international socialisation have shaped debates about same-sex relationship recognition in Canada and the US despite their greater distance – both geographic and political – from the European polity in which the SSU norm first appeared. Perhaps because of these distances very little of the burgeoning literature on US and Canadian LGBT politics has examined the ways

Mutual recognition and imperial organisation

recognition In 1861, Oxford, Cambridge and Trinity College Dublin established a system of mutual recognition in which they granted full rights of reciprocation to each other, enabling students to ‘have the Terms kept … at [Dublin or Cambridge] reckoned as if they had been kept at Oxford’, and vice versa. 2 This system was called ‘incorporation’ and

Representation, recognition and possibilities for transformative change
Constance Duncombe

. Analyses of representations provide critical purchase for understanding international conflict, because misrecognition creates feelings of disrespect that trigger state action leading to, or exacerbating, foreign policy crises. In this conclusion I revisit the main claims of this book and provide a brief consideration of the enduring power of representation and recognition in world politics. The relationship between representation, recognition and identity Part I of my book attempted to conceptualise the relationship

determined that a legal challenge should be pursued in Ireland, ideally through similar methods used by activists in Canada and America. In 2002, Zappone and Gilligan began a process which would ultimately bring the issue of marriage equality in Ireland to the fore. In April of that year, Zappone contacted the Equality Authority for advice on how to proceed with a case to establish legal recognition of her and Gilligan’s partnership. While supportive of the couple, ultimately the Equality Authority found that this case was not within its remit. The Authority was tasked

above: where should we draw the bounds between what is to be tolerated and what is not to be tolerated, and between what is to be merely tolerated, and what is to be given special recognition? These also introduce a deeper set of issues at a more theoretical level: is ‘tolerance’ the appropriate attitude to address diversity at all? Should discussions about how people can live together in societies that are religiously and culturally diverse be framed in terms of tolerance and mutual accommodation, or of more substantial forms of recognition, or yet again in terms of

French recognition and the Chinese nuclear test, 1963–64
Michael Lumbers

2 Holes in the dam French recognition and the Chinese nuclear test, 1963–64 Mounting dismay abroad over the PRC’s continued exclusion from the international community and high-level alarm over the mainland’s nuclear progress all but ensured that China would figure prominently among the several foreign policy items vying for the attention of Kennedy’s successor. Indeed, Lyndon Johnson’s first year in power coincided with a dramatic change in China’s international relationships. Both French recognition of Beijing and China’s explosion of a nuclear device exposed

imperial power who had dismissed his first collection. 39 And, indeed, the strategy worked: the same journal that had derided Leo’s Poetical Works praised the second collection’s ‘untutored frankness’, suggesting that Leo had successfully inhabited the position of raw being he attributed to the Amerindian. 40 Thus, we need to understand Creole indigeneity as a form of appeal for recognition by Creole subjects to centres of imperial power. It is not just about Creole claims to belonging, but the acknowledgment of those claims by the wider, whiter world

Contested narratives of the independence struggle in postconfl ict Timor-Leste

narrative has emerged in which the ‘valorisation’ of the resistance takes a central place and is anchored in the constitution. Among the living, this has meant the payment of pensions and compensation to veterans, public recognition, medals, public holidays and ceremonies. For the dead heroes of the Falintil, national monuments have been erected and a central heroes’ cemetery built. The official narratives stress heroism, sacrifice and above all unity, a term that resonates strongly in a society where various fault lines came violently to the fore in 2006 in a crisis that
