monarchs, ministers and the mob. Domestically, the state can give itself whatever constitutional and political system it likes. The principle assumes that no other state or international organisation has the right under normal circumstances to determine the internal political arrangements of a state. The Treaty of Westphalia established this principle. It is a key element of the legal basis for the modern state. Nevertheless, a

readily embraced by their European partners. This quick implementation left little time for either the fledgling politicians or the electorate to consider or prepare for the process of democracy. In considering how to design the system, the international organisations in charge, the UN, EU and OSCE, ignored the traditional and cultural ways of determining choice (such as family voting) and rushed forward

Even as we locate our study of agency within the space that we call civil society, we are mindful of the fact that significant segments of it can be coerced and co-opted particularly in conflict areas either by state or non-state actors. Drawing from three sites of contemporary (post-)conflict situations in this chapter – Jammu and Kashmir (J&K), Cyprus and

2 Governance and the clash of capitalisms This chapter provides a theoretical lens through which to analyse the impact of EU enlargement upon the European social dimension. At the heart of the theoretical debate on European integration lies the fundamental division between those who view the EU as an international organisation in which the Member States are the ultimate determinants of outcomes, as opposed to those who consider integration to generate its own momentum and thereby undermine Member State sovereignty. This division has its origins within

one feature: the realisation that particular ends – be they political, cultural or scientific – could not be achieved through national action alone. Internationalism was closely connected to transnational practices. Influenced by Robert Keohane and Joseph Nye’s work, scholars have used the term ‘transnational’ to stress that international organisations and multinational corporations help shape the international system alongside inter-state relations.9 This approach has influenced research into ‘transnational advocacy networks’ and transnational protest movements.10

The findings from the SSU case demonstrate that international organisations and transnational advocacy networks can have a profound effect on the human rights policies of western democracies, although the processes through which this influence operates are somewhat different and less instrumental than what has been reported in literature on authoritarian or transition regimes. More generically, the SSU case also sheds light on the

down precisely what this concept means. Here are a few questions to be considered carefully: • What is regulatory quality? • How do governments, international organisations and academics approach this concept? • What are the advantages and limitations of an approach focused on quality? • How does the institutional context affect quality? This chapter tackles these questions. As mentioned in chapter 1, our analysis is confined to the policy known as better regulation, that is, a set of initiatives to improve the capacity of governments and the EU to deliver high

’ – rather than bibliography – after 1903.56 The stimulus to create an institution for their further-reaching ambitions arrived with the Congress of Global Economic Expansion in Mons in 1905. In response to one of its resolutions, La Fontaine, Otlet and the Catholic civil servant Cyrille Van Overbergh founded the Central Office of International Institutions which, three years later, turned into the UIA. These bodies were conceived as clearing houses for all kinds of international organisations. Internationalism as science The idea that internationalism could and should be

corpses or other bodily remains, most often once the violence is over. The aim of the present volume, then, is precisely to examine this status and the factors at stake in its construction. Once episodes of mass violence and genocides come to an end, the resulting human remains become the subject of numerous and varied forms of investment. They are claimed by families and states and subjected to the attention of international organisations and the media. They may of course be forgotten, but they may equally be instrumentalised, placed in memorials or, to the contrary
