The letter concludes with a request that Bunker, and other College members, acknowledge all the emails sent by Abdoulaye regarding the solar project. The failure to acknowledge Abdoulaye’s concerns mentioned in the concluding section of the letter is pertinent, for it hints at how the official Barefoot narrative takes precedence over messy, ‘misbehaving’ realities.

The witnessing of development success

success In his book Cultivating Development: An Ethnography of Aid Policy and Practice (2005), David Mosse provides an ethnographic account of the establishment and development of a ten-year aid project in India, funded by the UK Department for International Development (DFID) and presented as the ‘jewel in the British aid crown’ of participatory poverty-focused development (ibid. 168). Mosse charts the implementation of the project from project design, through to field practices and evaluative outcomes. His conclusion, in short, is that success is generated through a

Sommers similarly argues that Latvia’s ‘success story’ – as the crisis management strategy came to be known on the international stage – has meant that ‘banks get paid’ (Sommers 2014: 24).16 More generally, this is the kind of reading that sociologists and anthropologists have often offered of neoliberal restructuring policies that have been imposed on Africa, South America and Eastern Europe over the

Integrative concepts for a criminology of mass violence

accurately, currently inactive theatre of violence. To the extent that moral arousal management is encoded and communicated in language, there are several forms of qualitative data that can be collected and analysed using standard deductive and inductive techniques. These include written texts in the form of archived bureaucratic documents (policies, orders, committee minutes, email threads, etc.), but also the proceedings and transcripts of trials and other arenas of transitional justice, for example the Argentinian Nunca más, or South African Truth and Reconciliation

Another development was the emergence of forensic medicine, which – with great disparities – became part and parcel of the state procedures surrounding dead bodies, with particular importance for the enforcement of state criminal law. In regard to (necro-political aspects of) sovereignty, forensic medicine and the associated state laws and procedures are essential to upholding the state’s claim to a monopoly of legitimate force and the elimination of killing with impunity. Thus, on this background it is not

, however, relaxed its policy towards dead bodies, and, in 1997, the Vatican granted an indult to allow for the celebration of the funeral liturgy, including mass, in the presence of the cremated remains, although this is still not preferred in most dioceses in Mexico. In spite of the clear differences between the state and the Catholic Church’s ‘governance of the dead’ in Mexico, they therefore both seem to allow the corpses to slide into oblivion. This oblivion of the corpses, however, results in a particular magical practice with bones. During my fieldwork in 2009

When the neo-liberal policies that were established under Mubarak’s ‘cabinet of businessmen’ and their entourage of crony capitalists, following the dominant ‘laissez-faire’ free-market economic policies, accompanied by the massive deregulation of working conditions and firing of workers, is still in operation under the current military regime? For example, workers have been detained, as in the attacks on bus and shipyard workers in October 2016 (Abaza 2013b; Egypt Solidarity 2016). So why complain about long
