2005 witnessed the rolling out of the Make Poverty History (MPH) development campaign coalition. The general, but not unanimous, view was that MPH made tangible headway on many of its demands. But, after the campaign, a sense of uncertainty about its costs and benefits spread throughout the sector. From 2006 onwards, individual campaign organisations each made a quieter and less celebratory post-mortem of the 2005 moment before returning to organisation-specific campaigning. 1 As a result of economic recession from 2008, the meta

through the jungles and across the arid deserts of Africa captivated the metropolitan reading public throughout the nineteenth century’. Over time, public perceptions of Africa have changed, although they remain significantly influenced by the colonial narrative of Britain as a global power following a missionary purpose to ‘civilise’ Africa. In the contemporary era, one of the biggest influences on the UK public’s perceptions of Africa has come from development non-governmental organisations (NGOs), particularly through the medium of their

91 Chapter 4 CERD’s contribution to the development of the rights of indigenous peoples under international law Jérémie Gilbert* Introduction The rights of indigenous peoples under international human rights law have greatly evolved in the last two decades, notably with the adoption of the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (UNDRIP) in 2007 which came to light after more than twenty years of negotiations.1 In terms of international legal standards, there are two main approaches to the rights of indigenous peoples, one stemming from

7 Policy developments in Britain on global warming: in search of political leadership Britain accounts for only about 2.5 per cent of total world emissions of carbon dioxide. In the early stages of global warming politics, this was often used by the government as an excuse not to take ‘hasty action’. Such cautious attitudes were reinforced by the government’s preoccupation with the biggest political project of the day, privatisation of the electricity industry. Britain was involved in the FCCC and its negotiation processes both as a member of the EU and as an

in Europe because of Germany’ deep impact on Russia’s cultural development, Russians have justifiably struggled to understand how a Kulturnation that felt such empathy with Russia should suddenly view them as Untermenschen and try to drive them out of Europe through the cruellest of wars. Baron von Herberstein (1486–1566) The development of German views on Russia goes back to the sixteenth century and the remarkable insights into life in Muscovy, Novgorod and other neighbouring lands provided by Baron Siegmund von Herberstein, a Habsburg envoy to the Moscow

In the previous chapters I have outlined the historical development of the Norwegian municipality and discussed three interrelated narratives dominating the descriptions of how municipal leadership has developed in recent decades. The first narrative concerned the impact of the New Public Management (NPM) reforms, which have, arguably, had a fragmenting effect both within the municipal organizations themselves and on their surrounding governing structures. The second narrative was the supposed transition from government to governance

a strong navy, contributed nothing. This drain on British finance and manpower led Liberal statesman Charles Dilke to argue in 1872 that ‘colonies are a source of military weakness to us, and our “protection” of them is a source of danger to the colonists’. 4 His argument for economic pragmatism was balanced by paternalistic concerns for colonial development, sentiments which would

124 4 Discrimination and the development of general practice The presence of migrant South Asian doctors in the British healthcare system can be linked to the existence of a post-​imperial recruitment system in post-​war Britain and the lingering effects of the empire of the mind in South Asia. Their movement into general practice, however, requires to be understood in a different way. This chapter and Chapter 5 will show how a discriminatory professional environment limited these doctors’ options and how their responses to this context contributed to defining

leaves room for interminable Marxist controversialising on the state in general and on the state in relation to monetary affairs in particular. This section uses the historical examples primarily to identify the essential role of states and inter-state relations in monetary relations and thence in economic development more generally. The examples are focused on Europe but it is implicit from the start that money should be understood ‘globally’; if Europe took the lead some time in the first half of the last millennium, it drew on the rest of the world. As above, value

A Session at the 2019 Modern Language Association Convention

“Interventions” was the organizing term for the presentations of three Baldwin scholars at the Modern Language Association Convention in Chicago in January of 2019. Baldwin’s travels and activities in spaces not traditionally associated with him, including the U.S. South and West, represent interventions of a quite literal type, while his aesthetic and critical encounters with these and other cultures, including twenty-first-century contexts of racial, and racist, affect—as in the case of Raoul Peck’s 2016 film I Am Not Your Negro—provide opportunities to reconsider his work as it contributes to new thinking about race, space, property, citizenship, and aesthetics.
