Fourth, the FSB is engaged not just in investigating the cases, but in bringing the prosecution and holding a number of the suspects in its own custody in the FSB-controlled prison, Lefortovo, in Moscow. This lack of a separation of roles and responsibilities has been criticised by Western observers, including the Council of Europe. To summarise, international organisations and human rights activists have highlighted sixteen spy

benefit of Arab representatives was not only used with the aim of improving the GDR’s stance in the Middle East – but within international organisations, too. During a meeting with the Head of the Economics Division of the League of Arab States, Minister Schwab emphasised that the two German states should be treated equally in the international arena – and in particular within the United Nations Economic Commission for Africa, where the GDR was trying to attain the same status as the FRG. Schwab tried to push the Arab League representative on the issue of the West

agree that international organisations have a key role to play in the contemporary peace project, as Bertie Ahern underlines, saying that a ‘synergy’ between supra-national institutions is vital since solutions to contemporary peace problems ‘can only be achieved through collective action by the international community as a whole’; or rather an effective ‘international framework’ as Hillary Clinton would have it. Hillary Clinton further states that ‘peace and reconciliation begins, not by eliminating differences, but by creating the ground of mutual respect’; one way

of international organisations, in front of a large multinational audience, to denounce the East German passivity and lack of interest on matters of restitutions to Israel – for example, when the GDR applied for membership of the UN’s Universal Postal Union. As the Union members were assessing the East German application, the Israeli representative took the floor, accusing that: ‘the Germany that today is applying … in no way conveys the image of a society that has undergone any essential moral change prior to returning among the civilized nations’. 61 Although

This complexity is evident as these actors move to navigate different approaches to peacebuilding, including questions of who leads or follows in diverse

ACT UP and the HIV/AIDS pandemic
Alister Wedderburn

… population dynamics – including levels of ‘disease’ – have now become strategically significant as well’ ( 2005 : 406). As a ‘strategically significant’ concern, HIV/AIDS has demanded a twofold political response. First, agencies like the Joint UN Program on HIV/AIDS and the World Health Organization are required to observe, gather data and produce knowledge about the epidemic. Second, they intervene on the basis of this knowledge, either by themselves or in tandem with other international organisations, states and non-governmental organisations, in order to manage and

international organisations like the World Bank. After all, ‘the Vietnamese bureaucracy is well schooled in slogans’ (Templer 1998 , 148) and its stated commitment to reform has been conducive to international cooperation. Despite important regional and ethnic disparities and a growing income differential (Luong 2003 , 16), Vietnam’s success in reducing poverty since the 1990s makes it attractive to aid agencies, which are keen to
