Embodying the disappeared of the Argentinian dictatorship through law

2 Seeking the dead among the living: embodying the disappeared of the Argentinian dictatorship through law 1 Sévane Garibian Y así seguimos andando curtidos de soledad, y en nosotros nuestros muertos pa’ que nadie quede atrás. (Atahualpa Yupanqui 2) Introduction The state policy of enforced disappearances in Argentina, planned and implemented during the military dictatorship of 1976–83, still has a striking effect today: in the absence of any corpses of the disappeared, the families seek the dead among the living. Their quest through the law embodies the

the foundational. Then we suggest that the post-­1979 policy experiment is now using ‘bolt-­ ons’, like industrial policy, to ensure that state policy answers exigencies without addressing fundamentals. But if we follow Braudel to think about the foundational economy and the character of state-­sustained corporate monopolies it is possible to reframe policy and imagine new kinds of intervention. No doubt there are many possibilities, but we have a specific proposal. We argue that foundational firms or sectors drawing on household expenditure or tax revenue within a

repressive state policies. As offspring of indentured workers from Natal, they were members of the Indian lower-middle class who had managed to get a Western education and had entered the white-collar professions; they were mostly Tamil-speaking Hindus and Christians, and their livelihoods depended to a large extent on the colonial administration. Colonial-born Indians began to cohere self-consciously as a social group in the interwar period when it became more difficult for this Western-educated elite to maintain their standard of

In order to elaborate on these points, the chapter will first outline France’s broader immigration, citizenship and integration policies and then examine state policies towards religion, with a focus on the country’s relations with the Turkish community. Immigration, citizenship and integration policies in France

, 2008; Jessop, 2002: 42; for a further discussion, see MacKenzie and Martínez Lucio, 2014). To this extent, the question of coordination of such levels and different approaches in public policy and state agencies politically and organisationally is one we need to be alert to (Crouch, 1993). What is more, the state intervenes not just in social spaces but also in ideological ones where specific issues, sensibilities and even national debates develop and configure the nature and impact of state policies (Locke and Thelen, 2006). Within these social and ideological

, and collaboration, with the royal government’.6 Equally, out-and-out criticism of state policy or of the shortcomings of individuals, royal and otherwise, did not feature in the Shows. Such sentiments in civic circles at large were sometimes inchoate in any case; where they were expressed, this tended to occur subtly and tentatively, in coded language and through the careful use of selected figures and emblems.7 I therefore follow Curtis Perry’s judicious approach: one should see the Shows not as ‘points on a graph leading to increased opposition between the city and

become realms of predictability. Under them, long-term investments in intellectual formation and the means of production also make sense for persons far from the centres of power. The lack of a monopoly of violence produces (under competitive conditions) spaces open to violence – violence fields. In these violence fields, people invest individually in the social and physical conditions of security in much higher proportions. Development, growth or productive innovation are not their preoccupations. The general practice of state policy towards violence fields organised by

. Kuwait's relations with Africa have been on multiple – and increasingly coordinated – levels of state policy, civil society and pious individual donors. The Kuwait Fund for Arab Economic Development (KFAED) initially focused on assisting Arab countries (including Sudan, Somalia, Djibouti and Comoros, members of the Arab League), but expanded its mandate to non-Arab countries in 1975, with a focus on Africa. This assistance developed in part following the 1973 Arab–Israeli war, which was a defining moment in Kuwait's joining other Arab countries in enhancing relations

The context for these films is to a large extent derived from not just Islamic traditions and taboos but also state policies in both colonial and postcolonial Algeria. Each film approaches the question of gender from a distinct perspective: in the
