An Interview with Caroline Abu Sa’Da, General Director of SOS MEDITERRANEE Suisse
Juliano Fiori

people crossing the Med. Caroline Abu Sa’Da is General Director of its Swiss branch. Juliano Fiori: SOS is very much a product of contemporary Europe. It’s a civic response to refugees and migrants in the Med but also to nationalistic politics, or to the return of nationalist movements to the forefront of European politics. How, then, does SOS differ from European humanitarian NGOs founded in past decades? Caroline Abu Sa’Da: SOS is a European citizen movement. Besides our search-and-rescue activities, we aim to give to the greatest number of

Screening war in Kosovo and Chechnya
Cerwyn Moore

industrialisation has been the compression of war, particularly in the West. However, the sense of industrial conflict enacted in the American Civil War masked another transformation, the emergence of political ideologies which would blight European politics and wars in the twentieth century. The move established by the end of the European and Ottoman empires, combined with the emergence of political ideologies led some writers such as the Czech philosopher Jan Patočka to recognise that war in the twentieth century was shaped by a ‘new techno-scientific age’.10 According to

offers an introduction to discussions about the politics of emotionality, before moving on to assess how the idea of salvation informed the decision by political elites in the Kremlin to re-invade Chechnya, while also arguing that ideas of redemption played a role in the decision by some West European political leaders, including Tony Blair, to turn to NATO in order to intervene in Kosovo. The politics of emotionality In recent years a number of political theorists and IR scholars have drawn attention to the role of emotions in world politics.1 One advocate of this

therefore be a ‘recognition of the United States and Great Britain as co-equal in continental [European] politics’ or even a ‘recognition of the United States as a permanent and dominating factor in Western Europe’. This was really thinking the hitherto unthinkable. In one of his admirably succinct memoranda (this time barely a page long), Pasvolsky wrote at the same period that a whole series of projects for Europe had to be considered, but all mentioned regional political and economic ‘arrangements’ or ‘unity’.
