Rationale, scope and key concepts
Joe Larragy

4 A case study: rationale, scope and key concepts R Introduction In this book, the CVP as a whole is the focus of a case study. This chapter sets out the reasons for undertaking a case study of the CVP, the key decisions regarding what the study should cover and the central concepts used to open up the underlying logic and significance of the Pillar to scrutiny. The theoretical justification for the research flows from the many gaps in our current understanding, as evident from the previous chapters. These gaps are theoretical, conceptual and empirical and all

The war in Iraq 2003

10 Case study: the war in Iraq 2003 The purpose of this chapter is to analyse the interaction of the four narratives when faced with the short-term policy issue of the 2003 war in Iraq.This chapter will again open with an overview of the background to the invasion and will focus upon the representations of this conflict offered by the four narratives. It will then go on to consider the ‘discursive play’ between the narratives as they try to frame the debate surrounding particular policy challenges, UN authorisation for military action against Iraq and the use of

Jessica Lynch, Ali Abbas and the anti- war movement

7 Case studies from the invasion of Iraq: Jessica Lynch, Ali Abbas and the anti-war movement Introduction Here we provide a focused analysis of three case studies, which serve to represent the three differing modes of news media performance in wartime, as well as shedding more light on the news-making process. The Jessica Lynch case study, involving the ‘dramatic’ rescue of a US ‘prisoner of war’, highlights just how compliant and deferential news media can be in wartime and can be viewed as an ‘ideal type’ example of supportive coverage. The case of Ali Abbas

Case study 1: a paragraph from an essay on race and ethnicity Extracted from an essay on black feminism, the following paragraph begins to distinguish black feminism from Western feminism as a basis for reviewing contributions that black feminists have made to feminism more generally together with evaluating their strengths and weaknesses. This is an important paragraph because it contains a point that is crucial to the argument about the way black feminists have criticised Western feminists for homogenising gendered experience.

3 Decentred perspectives: case studies It is, then, often on the periphery rather than at the centre that the more significant negotiations of identity take place. (Cooke and Vassallo 2009:  21) T he multilingual cinema of contemporary France operates both within the national centre and on its peripheries, both in dominant French spaces and beyond the borders of the Hexagon. In multilingual films, tensions and politics concerning France as a nation and Frenchness as an identity come to the fore, as do the shifting role and importance of the French language

6 Iraq War case study Introduction The UK media subjected the Iraq invasion to more scrutiny than their counterparts in the US, but this was constrained by strong and increasingly coordinated strategic efforts to ‘manage’ public opinion regarding the war (see, for example, Tumber and Palmer, 2004; Miller 2004b). In 2014, over a decade after the invasion of Iraq, the idea of the release of the Chilcott Inquiry report in the UK seems a futuristic fantasy. Nichols and McChesney were right to talk in the US of ‘tragedy and farce’ (2005): they give an extensive

Labour migration policy change in Spain
Alex Balch

4 Case study one: labour migration policy change in Spain Introduction At the end of 2003 a group of migration experts gathered to publish a short note on the Spanish government’s immigration policy. The text described policy as ethically obscene, politically dangerous, juridically inadmissible, and summed it up as ‘legal apartheid’.1 The ‘Madrid Manifesto’ was an unprecedented castigation of government policy, and was a direct reaction to the change in direction that had been taken post-2000, in particular the legislative reform of November 2003 passed by the

5 Case study two: labour migration policy change in the UK Introduction When in September 2000 Barbara Roche announced a fundamental change in British policy on labour migration, it was at a conference of the Institute for Public Policy Research (IPPR) held at the British Bankers’ Association in London. The new direction announced by Roche was all about recognising the ‘potentially huge benefits’ of migration, and changing policies to adapt to the global economy by bringing in new ideas, including from other countries, and carrying out more research on

The approach taken to human rights and rights promotion in the following case studies flows from the themes raised in Part I. Two simple ideas here are primary. The first is that notions of human rights, at their most fundamental level of significance, are one way of dealing with the perennial problems of the systemic infliction of suffering, particularly gross suffering, as a mechanism or a function of political organisation. That is, human rights practices are one way of articulating and working against

6 Viola Bernard and the case study of race in post-war America Joy Damousi The writings and political activism of Viola Bernard, a psychoanalyst of German-Jewish background who practised in New York during the twentieth century, provide a further prism through which to consider the genre of the case study, as well as broader questions concerning intersections between culture, politics and the discourses of psychiatry and psychoanalysis. A resilient political and social activist, Bernard was committed to many progressive causes. These included support of trade
