) humanitarian researchagendas. I became cognisant of the limited efforts to understand how good intentions coexist with
a system of international aid and intervention that seems harmful not for the few but for the
many. The silence of too many researchers simultaneously masks and normalises the harmful
consequences of the aid system.
The scholarship and advice I was exposed to as my early academic career developed prompted me
to explore the contradictory logic of international aid empirically: I set out to make a database

Inequality is a coin that cannot be understood by studying only one of its faces. In the preface to this volume, besides critically interrogating poverty, Williams asks what qualitative questions should we be asking about the rich?
social change is
needed if everyday spheres such as work, family, consumption and leisure are
to be understood as key realms of globalising social relations. Orthodox IPE
perspectives – conceiving of opposed realms of state and market, domestic
and international, and of power and knowledge as resources – have rendered
invisible precisely those realms of social life where the meanings of globalisation
are constituted. This book has engaged in some reflection on the dominant
ways of thinking that have shaped IPE’s researchagenda. I have asked how

critical academic social sciences today. The book is organised into three Parts, each made up of paired chapters illuminating a common theme. One-half of each pair focuses on the ‘elite’, and the other on the ‘marginalised’, with the intention of bringing these researchagendas together. This collection hopes to raise questions about the role of the social sciences, and to act as a springboard for future research on social and spatial inequalities.

Processes of cross-regime cooperation on issues of migration management have been left unexamined, disregarding multiple empirical examples in which migration management could facilitate rapprochement between non-democratic regimes. The small literature on alliances between non-democratic regimes seems to disregard the issue of migration.

scholarly work especially in France since the mid-1990s (Georgakakis, 2008).
Our analysis of education as a European policy space places its very emphasis
on the mediating practices between ‘transnational’ and ‘European’ political
work. We cannot discuss our approach to globalisation in any detail here but
simply state that, for this discussion, we are particularly interested in its
