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

New roles for experts and publics

experts and stakeholders. However, there is evidence that regulatory agencies and international organisations are not meeting their statutory obligations, falling short of their own guidelines in practice (Dreyer and Renn, 2014; Hartley, 2016; Herwig, 2014). We argue that public involvement in risk assessment is not reaching its full potential owing to a considerable lack of clarity in the literature and in practice about which publics should be involved in risk assessment and at what point they should be involved. Much of the riskgovernance literature examining public

Some have claimed the existence of a ‘right to democratic governance’ (Franck 1992) in international law, while others declared democracy to be a ‘settled norm’ (Frost 1996) whose contravention requires justification. The promotion of this powerful idea is no longer confined to rhetoric or the realm of philosophy as international organisations such as the UN have created their own democracy agenda, adopting practices that support, or even promote, democracy. In the last twenty years democracy support has become mainstream UN practice, used in a variety of

understanding of the world, those actors are likely to perceive it as an existential threat. Sociological institutionalism and UN peacekeeping There is a relative paucity of sociological institutionalist analyses of UN peacekeeping. This is partly the result of a general neglect of international organisations more broadly in sociological institutionalist studies, which have focused primarily on private firms and local government agencies, and only rarely on large international, intergovernmental organisations (Benner et al. 2011 : 53

obstacles and anxieties and create unprecedented levels of social, democratic and cooperative international organisation. Such a motive was behind the recent revival of interest in friendship among IR theorists. This interest, however, grew against the background of a sceptical/realist view that denies the reality for true and sincere friendship between states and nations since states are inherently egoistic and are mainly concerned with their own interest and security. This genealogical study of the concept of friendship has demonstrated that the opposition of ethical

A local critique of international donors' discourses

Introduction This chapter aims at providing an overview of the vision, the strategy and the language of international donors’ funding of preventing violent extremism (hereinafter PVE) programmes in the field of international cooperation in Tunisia. International organisations are increasingly important actors in PVE policies in the country. For this reason, this chapter seeks to provide a reflection about their role in the Tunisian context, problematising their priorities and strategies through a critical analysis of the discourse constructed in the projects

Legal pluralism in the world society

Perhaps the most interesting and dynamic phenomenon within law's empire itself is the development of private worldwide law offices, of multinational law firms which tend to take a global perspective of conflict regulation. 19 Thus, if neither Ehrlich's state law nor his lawyers’ law
