Congo), with all of the team members – from the head of mission to support staff. I wanted to make sure the teams had a shared view of the context and of the risks taken by the organisation and by each of them, according to their individual profile (gender, nationality, ethnicity and position in the organisation). The workshops also helped develop a common language when talking about threat, vulnerability and risk, and created a space for the staff to share

Henry Dunant, a Swiss citizen who was trying to get in contact with Napoleon III to request a concession in Algeria, came upon the battlefield and the dying, and the spectacle shocked the fervent evangelical (he was one of the founders of the Young Men’s Christian Association, later known as the YMCA). Dunant took an active part in organising first aid for the wounded, regardless of nationality

sexualities, gender identities, and gender expressions, and differentiations along lines of class, race, ethnicity, caste, nationality and ability, among others. To provide services to ‘men’ or ‘men and boys’ as if they were a monolithic category would be to repeat the mistakes that are often made in the provision of ‘women-friendly’ services, which in practice are often ‘straight and cisgender women-friendly’ ( Jolly, 2011 ; e.g. see Chynoweth, 2019b : 63).

Most refugees live in communities outside of camps in the northern governorates of Irbid, Mafraq and Zarqa. Large populations can also be found in the south in Ma’an, and in the capital city Amman, where the IKEA and JRF partnership is located. In Jordan, Syrians have faced fluctuating levels of humanitarian assistance and limited access to legal livelihoods; as such, many

Staff Security and Civilian Protection in the Humanitarian Sector

, nationality and sexuality ( EISF, 2018 ). In some cases, as in the bombings of ICRC and UN headquarters in Iraq in 2003, aid agencies and their staff are specifically targeted, and this could explain singling staff out from the rest of the civilian population on a case-by-case basis. However, it is not evident that the category of ‘staff’ is always and everywhere subject to a more distinct set of threats and vulnerabilities than other categories of

Ireland in a global world
Series: Irish Society

Migration to and from Ireland is often the subject of definitive claims. During the 1980s, migration from Ireland was most commonly described as a brain drain. Despite the constant flows and counterflows, academic studies tend to focus on just one direction of movement, reflecting dominant concerns at particular points in time. The 1950s and the 1980s are characterized as decades of emigration, the Celtic Tiger era as a period of immigration, and the current recession is manifest as a return to mass emigration. This book addresses the three key themes from a variety of spatial, temporal and theoretical perspectives. The theme of networks is addressed. Transnational loyalist networks acted both to facilitate the speaking tours of loyalist speakers and to re-translate the political meanings and messages being communicated by the speakers. The Irish Catholic Church and specifically its re-working of its traditional pastoral, lobbying and development role within Irish emigrant communities, is discussed. By highlighting three key areas such as motives, institutions and strategies, and support infrastructures, the book suggests that the Irish experience offers a nuanced understanding of the different forms of networks that exist between a state and its diaspora, and shows the importance of working to support the self-organization of the diaspora. Perceptions of belonging both pre- and postmigration encouraged ethnographic research in six Direct Provision asylum accommodation centres across Ireland. Finally, the book provides insights into the intersections between 'migrancy' and other social categories including gender, nationality and class/position in the labour hierarchy.

Why does the multi-ethnic, continuously in-fighting Dagestani elite nevertheless arrange a system of effective cooperation among themselves and seek close collaboration with Moscow, but the Chechen leaders, who belong to one nationality, are at odds with one another in the periods of peaceful independent development and unite only in times of direct opposition to Russia, exhibiting a monolithic and

discussion of the following concepts: nation, nationalism, nationality, the State and citizenship. After a brief overview of the different ways in which these concepts have been defined historically, their relevance within the post-revolutionary French context will be discussed. The section entitled ‘The politicisation of immigration’ will focus on the debates of the last thirty years, starting with the 1980s and 1990s and the context of the emerging far Right; the debates on nationality and integration; the recurring linkages made between immigration and law and order (l

Reporting in September 1999, the Commission’s recommendations formed the basis on which the Police Service of Northern Ireland came into being in November 2001. He chaired The Ireland Funds, the international charity which provided the funding for the Tip O’Neill lecture series, and in 2003 was awarded the degree of Doctor of Letters (honoris causa) by the University of Ulster. Central to his analysis of how society might move out of conflict was the overlap of nationalities in Northern Ireland, he said, pointing

. First, re-registration was public, expensive, and difficult. Second, the bill had not changed nationality laws. Third, the divorce courts refused to recognise legitimation unless the child Simple acts of justice 161 had used the Legitimacy Declaration Act. All of these issues caused problems for individuals who wanted to take advantage of the law. The RGO set up the process for re-registration when the Act seemed likely to reach the statute books. The LCO, the HO, and the RGO debated the best procedure in a conference in April of 1925. The Registrar, Sylvanus
