on behalf of city authorities, which tend to happen whenever state -sponsored events like official visits by overseas dignitaries and political summits provoke a city-wide ‘clean-up operation’.

of representing the country and all of its people. In lecturing on ‘Lessons of the peace process’, President McAleese was informed by her personal experience when, at a formative period in her life, her home area of north Belfast was engulfed by some of the worst of the conflict, as rioting broke out in August 1969. Over the following years that area of the city had to endure more than its share of suffering. Her turning of Tip O’Neill’s celebrated phrase that ‘All politics is local’ into ‘All peace is local’ was especially apt. Although her career was to lead to

MUP FINAL PROOF – <STAGE>, 08/19/2013, SPi Introduction Widely regarded as an expert in techniques of surveillance and political control, Israel has been successful in controlling a native population for a long time. Despite tremendous challenges, it has maintained a tight grip over a large Palestinian population in the territories it occupied in the 1967 War. Moreover, it has effectively contained the Palestinian minority inside its 1948 borders. Although members of the latter group were granted Israeli citizenship, through various policies, they have been

is that all conflict in Africa is tribal or that “tribal conflicts are fragmenting Africa’s nations” with the unspoken acceptance that identity-related violence is simply a way of life.2 “It is Africa, after all,” so goes the common refrain. This dismissive and simpleminded view not only ignores the complex nature of African conflict, but excuses the political 36 African security in the twenty-first century and economic culpability critical to fueling and sustaining the problem of ethnic, racial, religious, sectarian, or communal violence across the continent

all levels, both domestic and international. The son of a politically aware family from Drumcondra in north Dublin, he entered city politics in 1978 in the Fianna Fail interest, becoming Lord Mayor in 1986. In 1977, he was elected to the Dail from the constituency of Dublin-Finglas, and subsequently, as the result of redistribution, representing Dublin Central, a testing seat with a high level of social deprivation. In 1994, he was elected leader of Fianna Fail, the political party founded by Eamon de Valera in 1926. In June 1997, he led the party to victory

Asmal remembered a school teacher who evoked apartheid almost fondly, saying that at least it had held people together against a common enemy.1 The lesson of all his years of study, activism and political representation brought Asmal to the answer then, and one which he shared with his audience that February day, that, in the same vein as his host had asserted, we must find something more powerful to hold us together and that is a common future for humanity; a challenge, he concluded, we can only face together.

Unionist Party (DUP) since 2001, had increased friction in devolved government; particularly, over such issues as decommissioning, parades, policing and justice. In the course of 2002, already tense working relationships were stretched to breaking point and in October, then Secretary of State for Northern Ireland, John Reid, suspended devolved government at Stormont under controversial circumstances. Although London and Dublin came together in April 2003 to announce a joint proposal for forward movement, elections scheduled for May were postponed amid gloomy political

been viewed as an outlet for European imperialist expansion, as well as Europe’s search for wealth and new markets, two important characteristics of colonialism—defense of territory and maintaining control—would ­ come to form the crucial underpinnings of colonial involvement on the continent. Moreover, these features would later become the accepted building blocks of African security in the post-independence era. This legacy has helped to create a modern-day peace and security architecture that is largely state-centric and serving the self-interests of political

Lamotte explains: ‘Harmony is not homogeneity’, and insists that, ‘Creating that confluence takes attention, patience, and work … [a]nd it is not achieved by eliminating difference, but instead by finding ways to work together that are mutually nourishing, that honour and reveal each other's gifts’. 1 In this book we demonstrate how dance can encourage these elements and thus support peacebuilding.
