the initial decisions. I relied on the EISF (European Interagency Security Forum) network to set up the crisis-management trainings for all the heads of mission. We held several crisis-management trainings in the Sahel, Turkey, Thailand and Kenya. Most MdM heads of mission completed the training between 2013 and 2015. Task Four: Simplifying the Security Tools The EISF network and the humanitarian security literature it curates also helped guide my

From the Global to the Local

building upon existing literature on humanitarian campaigns and critiques of neoliberal approaches to refugee situations. With regards to the latter, it is important to start by acknowledging that humanitarian agencies around the world are facing cumulative funding reductions and a concomitant drive to diversify their donors. Simultaneously, donors and agencies alike are promoting greater degrees of ‘localisation’ – supporting the roles played by regional, national and local actors in affected regions – and ‘self-reliance’ amongst refugee

Resistance and the liberal peace: a missing link
Marta Iñiguez de Heredia

is done by focusing on resistance and looking at longer patterns in state–society relations and highlighting patterns of extraction and coercion that link the local conditions of the DRC with the global economy. Peasants have become involved in the war not only because they have been primary targets, but also because the war awoke amongst them a latent desire for revolt that continues to this day in different ways, including through violence. French anthropological and sociological literature has looked at these issues in some detail, but little has been done in

The United States in the Asia and Indo-Pacifics

. The relevant literature includes many fine volumes on Obama’s policy approach towards Asia with a particular focus on the Rebalance/Pivot strategy, but not on the entire record. 16 Our volume, therefore, is unique, and offers readers something entirely new. In particular, this volume stands out in three main ways. First, it offers readers a comprehensive analysis of Obama’s policy approach to the region across his full eight-year term as US president, along with the legacies he leaves behind. It does so with attention to Washington’s relations with key regional

normative basis of UN peacekeeping and the UN’s evolving role in world politics. The literature on the UN’s Cambodia experience has rightly pointed to the ‘comprehensive’ nature of the mission. What is less well understood is the normative meaning and implications of this comprehensiveness, which is what this chapter seeks to elucidate. Here we explore the local, regional and global interests

historical structural setting, which has a good deal of forward momentum. The Congo was in many ways the Somalia of its time. ‘Never again another Congo’ prevailed as the international motto for nearly thirty years. How might this be explained? In contrast to the dominant preoccupation in the peacekeeping literature, issues of ‘success’ and ‘failure’ have not been the primary focus

states’ trade with one another would automatically decline as a result of the collapse of the Soviet empire.37 A cursory examination of available FSU trade patterns reveals that trade levels among FSU states dropped significantly, by one estimate from $139 billion in 1991 to $59 billion in 2000.38 However, FSU historical, infrastructural and other logistical realities would severely constrain any state from fully escaping significant economic intercourse with other FSU states. In the past decade there has been an explosion of political science literature concerning

Redefining security in the Middle East
Tami Amanda Jacoby and Brent E. Sasley

the notion of ‘redefining security’. Even during the last decade, the literature on this subject has remained small. In comparison to Western regions and states where, it is argued, liberal capitalist democracies do not go to war, especially with each other ( Mueller, 1990 ; Doyle, 1986 ), the Middle East remains an area in which protracted militarized, armed conditions of conflict are staples of the

challenges of international society at any given time’. 8 Knight’s research is noteworthy in that it seeks to apply a highly sophisticated body of theoretical literature to the study of multilateral institutions through an examination of the UN. Especially important for us is his application of historical structural ‘insights’ to the study of institutional evolution, with a constant
