3 The biopolitics of recognition Homonationalist formulations of asylum indicate the possibility that the state is bound to appear to be proactive in creating conditions of fairness for LGBT asylum seekers. This chapter looks at the administrative management of asylum, and argues that there is a contradiction at the heart of the social problem of asylum: asylum discourses are based on a specific regime of justification, that of universalistic human rights, which are consistently negated by a tough practice of exclusion. This contradiction puts the state at risk

The Nelson Mandela Bay Amabutho

have had to inscribe their history into public space and public consciousness by other means. One of the group’s driving aims is to agitate for material and symbolic recognition of its contribution to what one member terms ‘the last war of apartheid’. Like the traces of forced removals that remain half-submerged in the landscape around South End and elsewhere, the memory of Amabutho activity is embedded in the ordinary landscapes of the city: street corners, backyards and storm drains in Veeplaas, Kwazakele and New Brighton, which bear no obvious traces of the events

The case of Iran–US relations

This book addresses a critical issue in global politics: how recognition and misrecognition fuel conflict or initiate reconciliation. The main objective of this book is to demonstrate how representations of one state by another influence foreign policymaking behaviour. The key argument is that representations are important because they shape both the identity of a state and how it is recognised by others. States respond to representations of themselves that do not fit with how they wish to be recognised. The book provides a thorough conceptual engagement with the issues at stake and a detailed empirical investigation of the fraught bilateral relations between the United States and Iran, which is perhaps one of the most significant flashpoints in global politics today. Despite Iran and the US finally reaching an agreement on the nuclear issue that allows Iran limited nuclear technological capacity in exchange for the lifting of certain sanctions, the US withdrew from the deal in May 2018. However, questions remain about how best to explain the initial success of this deal considering the decades of animosity between Iran and the US, which have previously scuppered any attempts on both sides to reach an amicable agreement. Increasing concerns about declining Iran–US relations under the Trump administration suggest even more so the power of recognition and misrecognition in world politics. Scholars and strategists alike have struggled to answer the question of how this deal was made possible, which this book addresses.

Ireland’s constitutional politics of school choice

3 Tolerance, recognition and educational patronage: Ireland’s constitutional politics of school choice Eoin Daly This chapter examines the place and role of toleration and recognition in the Irish education system through a critical review of state support for religious schools, specifically of the historical legacy of the patronage system. In Irish political discourse there has been a general acceptance that religious freedom is best served by devolving public education to private ‘patron’ bodies. While in the past the ‘patronage’ model may have been understood

wants to do something to show we're not all wasting our time’ (BBC News 2020 ). The singular declaration of a US president of the transformation of the Taliban from recognition as a terrorist organisation to a potential counterinsurgent highlights the powerful effect that acts of recognition, mis-recognition and non-recognition of armed non-state actors (ANSAs) can have in the course of civil conflict. This is only one speech by a US leader in a long-lasting conflict, and it may not in the long run have an impact, but it was an unusually visible

13 Toleration, respect and recognition in Northern Ireland Cillian McBride This chapter addresses the appropriate attitude to different identities in a divided society with particular respect to Northern Ireland. It outlines the problems inherent in the goal of recognition, and identifies the enduring strengths of tolerance, despite the criticism to which it has been subject. The problem facing Northern Ireland is how to create a shared future based on the firm foundation of equal citizenship. In large part, the appropriate legal mechanisms are in place, but our

Promoting inclusivity in the mediation of the Intergovernmental Authority on Development in South Sudan

groups fragmented after it was signed. The South Sudan case illustrates that the relationship between greater inclusivity and the non-recurrence of violent conflict is not as straightforward as currently theorised in mediation research. With this in mind, this contribution probes the question of why ANSAs continue to use violence during and after the peace mediation despite their inclusion. The analysis draws on recognition theory, particularly the concept of mis-recognition, to further nuance the relationship between inclusivity in mediation processes and the
