the initial decisions. I relied on the EISF (European Interagency Security Forum) network to set up the crisis-management trainings for all the heads of mission. We held several crisis-management trainings in the Sahel, Turkey, Thailand and Kenya. Most MdM heads of mission completed the training between 2013 and 2015.

building upon existing literature on humanitarian campaigns and critiques of neoliberal approaches to refugee situations. With regards to the latter, it is important to start by acknowledging that humanitarian agencies around the world are facing cumulative funding reductions and a concomitant drive to diversify their donors. Simultaneously, donors and agencies alike are promoting greater degrees of ‘localisation’ – supporting the roles played by regional, national and local actors in affected regions – and ‘self-reliance’ amongst refugee

One of the essential attributes of the Gaelic state which made it so attractive to separatist thinking was that ‘The people were the state(ship), and the state(ship) was the people, for with them the power finally lay’.6 Popular sovereignty was The United States Constitution is said to have been influenced by Rousseau, Montesquieu, Locke and others, the Weimar Constitution by Kant, various French constitutions by Voltaire, Montesquieu and

. The observation that a distinct body of law known as sports law is emerging in the EU requires both empirical and theoretical justification. One of the weaknesses of the sports law argument is the lack of theoretical underpinning. Although the literature on the emergence of sports law is descriptively strong, it remains unclear at what point the concept of sport and the law loses its relevance and the distinct area of sports law emerges. Furthermore, beyond the assertion that commercialisation has driven juridification, little has emerged on the dynamics driving the

Given the apparent relationship between the commercialisation of the sports sector and juridification, the emerging dominant theoretical approach has concerned regulation (for a review of the literature see Gardiner et al. 2001).

He becomes one of the vast mass of British subjects without legal right or title to be proud of his particular nationhood.’37 Kohn, Constitution of the Irish Free

Today, with the coming into independent statehood of almost all colonial territories, and with their accession to the Geneva Conventions and participation in such conferences as that which drafted the 1977 Protocols, together with their anti-discrimination provisions – except against mercenaries 72 – such a comment would no longer be acceptable. Moreover, imperial powers like France and the United
