such as foreign invasions, foreign trade, cultural imperialism, British colonial rule and the Indian national movement. Migration from the Indian subcontinent is discussed separately in Chapter 7. These processes have forged links between Indian and other societies. In the age of globalization these links are being emphasized by both the Indian government and the media as well as the Indian diaspora. Chapter 2 examines the democratization of Indian politics. The process of constitutional development began in the nineteenth century and culminated in the drafting and

One of the ‘places at risk’ owing to climate change are the Pacific Atolls, where the radical transformations of climate patterns have threatened the islands’ ‘unique biophysical systems and species; … unique material cultures, social orders, diets, stories, languages, habits, and skills’, causing migrations for the

“traditional” princes’ (1998: 103). 216 India in a globalized world Globalization involves the interconnectedness of societies. This book has noted the features of contemporary globalization but also argued that earlier phases of globalization were equally significant and instrumental in bringing about a ‘global world’. Earlier phases were associated with foreign invasions, trade, imperialism and missionary activity that took place many centuries ago. Later European colonialism, the emergence of a global economy and India’s integration into it, and migration from South

human security. This is mostly evident in the case of the EU–China strategic partnership acting as the broad institutional framework for a dialogue on security and defence policy, a dialogue on development, a political dialogue on nonproliferation and disarmament, a human rights dialogue, a high-level dialogue on migration and mobility, the sustainable development task force, a dialogue on energy and the climate change partnership (ESPO, undated). All these sectoral dialogues associate with freedom from fear and freedom from want. The institutional framework may show

Framework, and marks a significant upgrade of the bilateral relationship. Indeed, the fact that relations have improved from the low point of the aborted 1997 Framework Agreement (discussed below) is indicated by the inclusion in the new agreement of the standard political clauses (e.g. commitment to human rights) that proved so controversial in the 1990s. The new Framework Agreement aims to facilitate and promote co-operation across multiple sectors, including trade, research and innovation, counter-terrorism, education and culture, and migration (European Commission

Kosovo has, somewhat obviously, been the site of numerous conflicts.16 More often than not, violence in the region has revolved around the complexities of family and clan rivalries. As Ger Duijzings writes, since living conditions in Kosovo were both harsh and highly competitive, the extended family provided ‘not only a kind of safety net (as is the case in Western Europe), but also a major source of group solidarity and primary defensive-and-attack unit, strictly organised along

nature of territorial borders (Bruter, 2005), the tension stemming from current migration and mobility flows (Boswell and Geddes, 2011), and the dual, albeit contested, citizenship statuses of most European citizens (Preuss, 1996) suggest that the issue of European identity is as important today as ever. It mirrors the debate introduced in Chapter 1 on the complex historical and cultural nature of Europeanisation. Owing to the widespread recognition of the significance identity can have, there remains much disagreement among scholars about the genuine meaning of, and

, Henry Barkey attributes the discovery of Kurdishness and the process of politization by students and workers of Kurdish origin, to large migration movements inside Turkey. These people, who previously had become thoroughly Turkish, migrated from the rural areas to Turkey’s metropolitan industrial and educational centers, Istanbul, Izmir and Ankara. 9 After the September 1980 coup in Turkey, Ocalan – the name means “revenge” – fled to Lebanon. From there, and from Syria or Syrian-controlled territory, he directed the Kurdish uprising from 15 August 1984 until his

-intensive industrialization and urbanization. Over time a distinct bias became apparent towards urban settlements in general and big cities in particular’ (cited in Datt and Sundharam, 2001: 159) India has been urbanizing rapidly and this process is unlikely to be reversed as it is a global trend. However, the growth of megacities creates problems that have to be tackled at various levels (Dutt, 2000), an issue that has been discussed elsewhere. One of the factors responsible for rural–urban migration or migration from the villages to the cities is the lack of economic opportunities in the
