War economies, peace economies and transformation

be differentiated on the basis that the former, as defined previously, is either a result of, directly causes, or directly contributes to physical, organised, political violence while peace economies are constituted by economic relationships which neither benefit from nor have a causal relationship with physical, organised political violence. By this criteria, and given the aforementioned interdependence and global scope of economic activities, it is impossible to classify any economic system as a clear example of a peace economy. While geographically detached from

Citizens, mindsets, realities: Essays for David Marquand

Social democracy's often diffuse societal, intellectual and cultural influences have exceeded and outlasted Labour's direct electoral success. This book focuses questions relating to the popular values, mindsets and sense of citizenship needed to further social democracy on that deeper enterprise of this book. It reflects on the 'big picture' of social democracy and progressivism, both historical and contemporary. Part I takes the historical bird's eye view, exploring social democratic and liberal dilemmas that both pervaded the twentieth century and remain very much alive today. It suggests that scholars and political analysts tend to under-play the extent to which progressivism and the voters have managed to operate in constructive harmony. Tracing new and social liberalism's, distinctive offer of a fusion between social interdependence and individualism, the volume assesses the failure of this British liberalism to become the over-arching driver of politics. The Scottish secession from the United Kingdom in the aftermath of the Brexit referendum is also discussed. Part II takes stock of the critical scrutiny, discussing 'Western' democracies alongside the dominance and the extensive body of thought from David Marquand on citizenship, and especially Marquand's civic republican vision. Part III seeks to apply Marquand's search for the 'principled society', discusses social and psychological concept of 'neighbourliness', and examines the public good less as a fixed entity. Finally, the significance of Christopher Addison and his notions on the democratic socialism and liberal progressive traditions, and pluralism are discussed.

by social change. In this chapter, I aim to highlight how Dewey’s conception of creative democracy was also informed by what he took to be the global interdependence of the Great Society. This centres on how Dewey believed that creative democracy needed to be exercised not only within America, but also outside and between nation states and the various publics engendered and scattered across the globe by what we have come to call the First Great Globalization. To achieve this, the chapter will consist of three sections. The first section highlights the globalized

a version of British foreign policy based on internationalism, which stressed co-operation and interdependence, and a concern with the international as well as the national interest. In this, by far the most important influence on Labour’s foreign policy were liberal views of Vic2-00 _Vic00 10/03/2011 11:18 Page 3 INTRODUCTION 3 international relations. Thus, Labour sought a reformist rather than a radical or revolutionary approach to foreign policy. This study argues therefore that there has been a discernable Labour Party foreign policy throughout the

Conclusion Is there a theoretically grounded conception of EU citizenship to be had, and, if so, what would be its implications vis-à-vis the current European Union? In today’s world of complex rule-making interdependence the prospects for democratically authoritative decision-making beyond state contexts depend on the sorts of responses we can come up with to these kinds of questions. Pressing the concept of citizenship very hard will not help us to do so, and neither will reliance on the models and assumptions of yesteryear. This book tried to answer that

instance of food right now – while her right has not disappeared, she may not make the relevant claim for the time being. Similarly, should an agent waive a right, the right still exists – it is simply that the agent has chosen not to exercise it. He retains the right, but does not make the claim, or do whatever it is the right sets him at liberty to do. Interaction and interdependence Rights and duties presuppose interdependence amongst a plurality of interacting humans, and are a way of ordering it.

culture, along with his interdependence gap, justice gap and process–structure gap theories, support a constructive framework. For Lederach, conflict resolution does not ‘adequately describe the ongoing nature of conflict in the relational ebb and flow over time, or its usefulness in the construction of peace’. 25 Conflict transformation, however, is much

interdependence’ on an unprecedented complex and wide scale (LW2: 307). In industry, for example, the new corporations of 1920s America such as General Motors, Ford and General Electric did not just produce oligopolistic industries but had become vertically integrated entities. Such vertically integrated corporations and the widespread use of electricity, cheaper steel production, the chemical industry and the advent of the assembly line thus delivered mass industrial production.3 The move from an agrarian to such an advanced capitalist society had essentially brought about
