neutral during the Second World War although the large extent of its secret cooperation with the Western Allies led some to question if the country could really be described as having been neutral and redefined its wartime attitude as rather having been ­non-belligerent.2 In the immediate post-war years, Ireland became ­officially a republic in 1949 and left the British Commonwealth. It also refused to join NATO as the then government deemed that joining the Atlantic Alliance would imply the recognition of Northern Ireland and the acceptance of partition.3 However

, the PRC already had a good idea of how to implicate the Uyghurs in that war. China’s campaign for international recognition of a Uyghur ‘terrorist threat’ Signs of the PRC’s intent to brand what it had previously framed as Uyghur ‘separatism’ as a ‘terrorist threat’ already appeared about five weeks after the 9/11 attacks. In being asked about a conference held at the European Parliament by the East Turkistan National Congress, a Europe-based Uyghur advocacy group, a spokesperson for the Chinese Foreign Ministry on 19 October went on a tirade about the group being

The differentiation between the laity and those who have received ordination in a religion is not characteristic of all religions. In some it is demarcated, in some it is not to be found, and in yet others the differentiation is blurred. I would like to contrast the recognition and concern for the laity in Buddhism with the other major religion of early India, Hinduism, which tends either to leave it fluid or as in some sects, gives it no recognition. Votive inscriptions from Buddhist sites in the Deccan, the northern part of the Indian peninsula, during the

)ontological uniqueness is constituted in terms of differential effects of environment in relation to the different locations in space/time and through the differential effects on actions exacted as a consequence of time irreversibility. Every time an individual acts, they both reproduce the past and differentiate themselves in terms of it. Such a model of the self means that the issue of the separability of persons is assured.

popularity as a feminist writer, she deserves recognition as a pacifist writer and activist, and that we need to reconceive of her work as part of an on-going pacifist project. I make the claim that Kingston can be considered alongside other Asian American authors, notably Le-Ly Hayslip, as contributing towards the evolution of an Asian American women’s peace literature. Kingston as poet and peacemaker ‘I have almost finished my longbook,’ says Maxine Hong Kingston in To Be the Poet (2002). ‘Let my life as a poet begin

A matrix of tolerance

and are integrated into a society reveal different forms of tolerance that can be understood as a matrix involving different dimensions of both tolerance and intolerance (see below). Indeed, acceptance is not a linear pathway, and for instance attaining recognition does not necessarily follow from mere tolerance and, as we will see, aspects of intolerance can also become a means to a more positive end. Ultimately society can reach a position where different groups recognise and respect each other. Such a move is reliant on proactive measures; indeed in certain

Contemporary immigration law thus maintains the global 17 EL-ENANY PRINT.indd 17 02/01/2020 13:38 (B)ordering Britain racial order established by colonialism, whereby colonised peoples are disproportionately dispossessed of land and resources within and outside Britain’s borders. Britain must therefore be understood as a contemporary colonial space. In such a context, a critique of processes of legal status recognition

between the outside and the inside of queer space. Finally, the notion of safety inside community space is produced in close relation to bodily intimacy and sustained by the recognition of social identities. Torres describes this as entering a place of intimacy, where the constraints of the public sphere are loosened and feelings of safety transform the body. However, what happens when you are not safe within those intimate boundaries of the community? LGBTQ people are not only the object of violence in the public sphere but even within their intimate relationships

this insight has not yet been fully explored. This chapter examines the international legal notion of statehood, the doctrine of recognition, some of the major incidents of statehood – jurisdiction and state responsibility – and the concept of self-determination as a process for acquiring statehood. It discusses the invisibility of women in the construction and application of these legal principles and

reflected the tensing up of the political climate. The intellectual discourses in France were intertwined with the ‘question’ of immigration which, as we saw in Chapter 1, had by the 1980s and 1990s become extremely politicised. On the whole, the debate about cultural difference and increasing demands for official recognition of difference by ‘minority’ groups has been divided into two camps. The first camp has often been referred to as ‘les républicains’. Its protagonists tend to argue that any recognition of cultural difference in the public sphere would be contrary to
