marketing and branded identity. Nike generates and expends (consumes) physical and mental resources – both productive and non-productive – as the energy that flows through the global supercapitalist ecosystem. X ◊ sovereignty (imperative form) The ‘sovereignty’ that is attributed to African-American culture should not be understood in the sense of that term when it refers to the sovereignty of states as defined by international law. Rather, sovereignty should be understood economically as an immanent principle of supercapitalism which denotes economic activity that is

deprivation of dignity. I seek to find moments in which dance is utilised from the bottom up, protesting a wrong, namely the marginalisation of individuals who are deemed voiceless, less than human. I draw my case studies from one of the areas which is of key interest to human rights activists and theorists worldwide. This is the struggle of the Palestinian people for sovereignty and recognition as a state under international law. This struggle enables the people of Palestine to make human rights claims within jurisprudential structures that belong to a nation state. This

Unsettling dominant narratives about migration in a time of flux
Kirsten Forkert, Federico Oliveri, Gargi Bhattacharyya, and Janna Graham

European military intervention is about bringing democracy and the rule of law to those regions. This framing of ‘innocence’ has contributed to legitimising an increasingly securitised and militarised response to populations in movement. The refugee ‘crisis’ was presented as a threat and catastrophe being faced by Europe. In this telling, it was for Europe to decide the reach and limits of international law and responsibility and to decide how we should manage our borders and the unlucky people washing up there. Postcolonial innocence and processes of migrantification We

Minister of the Interior, Matteo Salvini. Both countries have also seen the development of grassroots refugee solidarity movements, though – as will be seen – these have their limitations. Our work began with a question about how popular understandings of global conflicts come about. The discussion of Europe’s responsibilities to people in movement has resurrected questions about the interdependency of the international community, our responsibilities to each other and the terms of international law. We argue that limited knowledge about the histories and challenges

helpful to look at Derrida’s argument on the fate of the rogue state in the post-cold-war period. This fate seems to herald one of a number of possible ends of the state, not just rogue states, but the state-form generally and with it, necessarily, America. The phrase ‘rogue state’ has been used as a denunciation intermittently since the 1960s to describe the internal, non-democratic politics of various nations. But it is only since the end of the cold war that it has gained currency as an indicator of international behaviour breaking the spirit of international law

should, of course, have such coverage. Table 1.1 Fire extinguishers Places where the public have access should also be covered by this kind of insurance. If you are going onto a location, it is worth checking with the people responsible to ensure they are covered. Conclusion Most of the regulations and laws behind these pages have come into being because people have died or been mutilated whilst ignoring safety considerations. The local rules and the national or international laws are there for your protection. Don’t undervalue them. One responsibility

The dancer of the future dancing radical hope

violence, those responses subverting intention at times but creating different spaces in which bodies could meet and heal together. The dance continues through the dabke, allowing for people to join and create a shared embodied symbolic space where international law cannot allow that to be created. The argument then creates an embodied dialogue between the dabke dancers, stalled in checkpoints, and Arkadi Zaides’s unravelling of a space for a chorus of Palestinian narrators, made absent by systematic infringement upon their human rights. The argument dances equality and

of historical Palestine as a future Jewish state. Palestinian resistance through two intifadas, various wars, and the continued press for the enforcement of international law through the United Nations has placed Israel in a trying and difficult position with respect to its long-term legitimacy. In this context, questions about the rights of the Palestinian people are not easily pushed aside, despite the use of various tactics to undermine the legitimacy of the Palestinian quest for national determination and liberation. Such tactics include asserting that the

, America frequently justifies its disregard for the United Nations, international law and the International Criminal Court. For Francis Boyle, the great protector exists in a state of ‘international legal nihilism’ (Boyle, cited in Pieterse, 2004: 121; see also 2002). America sees its role as the great protector not just because it is the bearer of the good, in the form of ‘universal values’ – democracy, economic freedom and individual rights – but because of its great power. As an effect of the cold war with the Soviet Union and its economic success, America has amassed
