contextualise the gacaca practice. Such a contextualisation is important in order to understand processes of territorialisation and deterritorialisation of the gacaca assemblage. Through these notions I am evoking the forces at play in and on the gacaca practice resulting in different types or styles of truth interacting in the gacaca assemblage : the forensic truth , the moral truth , the effectual truth and, what I refer to as the Truth-with-a-Capital-T . The first is a consequence of the design of the court system, the second is derived from the socio

approach to the State emerges in their philosophical distinction between deterritorialisation and reterritorialisation. In What is philosophy?, Deleuze and Guattari (1994: 67–8) argue that we ‘need to see how everyone, at every age, in the smallest things as in the greatest challenges, seeks a territory, tolerates or carries out deterritorialisations, and is reterritorialised on almost anything – memory, fetish or dream’. This process of deterritorialisation and reterritorialisation permeates the State and the city. State and City, on the contrary, carry out a

‘[d]eterritorialisation, in general, is one of the central forces of the modern world’. Deleuzian philosophy, it must be noted, has had a significant impact upon the ubiquity of this concept of flow within the social sciences and particularly human geography. In the words of Boltanski and Chiapello (2007: xxiv), what Deleuze and Guattari offer is ‘an ontology containing only one tier or plane (the ‘plane of immanence’)’, which ‘knows only singularities or flows, the relationship between which assumes a reticular form and whose movements and relations are governed by

, universalisation, westernisation or deterritorialisation. It is argued that the first four perspectives cannot adequately capture the nature of contemporary globalisation because they reduce it to pre-existing processes. Scholte favours ‘deterritorialisation’ as an account of globalisation that emphasises ‘far-reaching change in the nature of social space’ (2000: 46). His rejection of the first four perspectives reinforces his own Amoore_Global__01_Intro 3 6/19/02, 12:03 PM Globalisation contested 4 perspective on globalisation as the transformation of social relations and

, indeed, the national trauma. Today, movement means travel or working abroad or ‘coming home’. The Irish media portray Ireland’s citizens as the ‘young Europeans’, computer literate, confident, citizens of the world. Migration, then, cannot have a simple meaning as a symptom of globalisation. It can signify expulsion or, as in Ireland today, success. The diaspora was once an integral element of Irish identity. Today, there is a move to ‘bring it home’ but home is not what it used to be. The Ireland of today has seen the full effect of the deterritorialisation of culture

). The growth of harsh new border regimes or what activist Harsha Walia ( 2013 ) calls ‘border imperialism’ has been a midwife to the birthing of these death worlds in Europe, not only in the Mediterranean but in planes, lorries and detention camps and centres across the continent. There are three simultaneous, imbricated developments in contemporary border regimes: the deterritorialisation of state sovereignty; a fortification of land

they attended the Royal Police Training College in Barbados. None of the four men had been born in St. Lucia and all were surprised and thrilled to meet each other at the game. They had intense conversations trying to get caught up on the goings on of the past three decades. The similarity between reunions in St. Lucia and England demonstrate the deterritorialisation of the Caribbean and the potential for diasporas to

Taking from the land without acknowledging indigeneity (not to mention ongoing colonialism) is well rehearsed in dominant Canadian discourses. Club members are not immune to the charms of the language, imagery and ideology of Canadian nationalism, demonstrating that deterritorialisation has destabilised identity, but it has not
