study comes with a particular set of concerns that I have been mindful of in this research. 15 At the same time, I would not wish to reduce or objectify the lived human experience that lies at the heart of this study, so it is a question of balance and considered choices. I have drawn from personal testimonies in secondary sources, and from primary sources involved in working with refugees and arrivals. Much of the history of humanitarianism research focuses on the narratives and policies of international organisations and their wider regimes. This universalising

US efforts militarily to contain Iranian influence. The African Union, arguably the single most avowedly inter­ ventionist international organisation in the world, is utterly dependent on Western arms and money for its cross-border military efforts. Examples of non-Western military interventions also often occur in circumstances shaped by Western states. Turkey’s 2007 intervention in northern Iraq in pursuit of Kurdish separatists was only possible and necessary after the boost to 35 Cosmopolitan Dystopia.indb 35 06/01/2020 16:21:40 Cosmopolitan dystopia Kurdish

dimensions that compose EU foreign policy, as this might influence the outcome of any assessment (Jørgensen, 1998 : 96). Assessments of EU foreign policy have in fact varied depending on the particular conceptualisation of the EU and its foreign policy adopted by the observer (as a state-like entity, an international organisation or sui generis ), the components of the external action considered (CFSP

survived and developed in a variety of guises. At the level of church diplomacy, Cardinal Mercier initiated a dialogue with the Church of England: between 1921 and 1928, his ‘Malines Conversations’ brought Catholic clergymen together with figures such as the Bishop of Truro and Lord Halifax, the British Conservative who later became Viceroy of India (1926–31) and Foreign Secretary (1938–40). Meanwhile, new international organisations for Catholics were founded after the end of the First World War, ranging from the Catholic Union of International Studies in Fribourg to

in the (less affected) west of the city. Administration by a neutral international organisation was proposed as an interim solution to the problem of lack of agreement on common institutions after the ceasefire, as well as to help with the reconstruction of the city. The idea of supporting the administration of Mostar was originally launched in October 1993 in the context of the negotiations of the

problems (Stein 2008 : 209). Moreover, the support of hegemonic states may be needed to create international organisations and regimes (Young 1982 ). And the states creating an international institution exercise a form of power by altering the status quo and the available options and by excluding non-members from benefits (Stein 2008 : 211; Downs et al. 1998 ). Indeed, as Richardson ( 2008 : 227) remarks, although the term ‘co-operation’ remains positively connotated, states co-operate to maximise gains and minimise losses, so institutions remain ‘of the privileged

Reflecting their historic concerns with service organisation, and engaging with mounting critiques of medicine made from within and without the profession, various professional bodies, international organisations, and the BDA became increasingly concerned about standards of diabetes care over the last quarter of the twentieth century. The Royal Colleges and BDA, for instance, collaborated in drawing up guidance on service organisation in 1977, and audited the staffing and facilities available for NHS diabetes management in 1984.

other perspective is the politics of recognition of the ‘international community’ (Daase et al. 2015 ). States and international organisations are the major actors in the global state system which are able to confirm and validate legitimacy claims of armed groups through acts of recognition. The international recognition of armed groups is in part a reaction to the demands of these groups, but in part also motivated by a host of other reasons, which sometimes seem to defy any logic. Our core argument is that the politics of legitimacy and international recognition
