The Securitisation of Climate Change - Actors, Processes and Consequences (Paperback): Thomas Diez, Franziskus von Lucke, Zehra... The Securitisation of Climate Change - Actors, Processes and Consequences (Paperback)
Thomas Diez, Franziskus von Lucke, Zehra Wellmann
R999 Discovery Miles 9 990 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

This book provides the first systematic comparative analysis of climate security discourses. It analyses the securitisation of climate change in four different countries: USA, Germany, Turkey, and Mexico. The empirical analysis traces how specific climate-security discourses have become dominant, which actors have driven this process, what political consequences this has had and what role the broader context has played in enabling these specific securitisations. In doing so, the book outlines a new and systematic theoretical framework that distinguishes between different referent objects of securitisation (territorial, individual and planetary) and between a security and risk dimension. It thereby clarifies the ever-increasing literature on different forms of securitisation and the relationship between security, risk and politics. Whereas securitisation studies have traditionally focused on either a single country case study or a global overview, consequently failing to reconstruct detailed securitisation dynamics, this is the first book to provide a systematic comparative analysis of climate security discourses in four countries and thus closes an empirical gap in the present literature. In addition, this comparative framework allows the drawing of conclusions about the conditions for and consequences of successful securitisation based on empirical and comparative analysis rather than theoretical debate only. This book will of interest to students of climate change, environmental studies, critical security, global governance, and IR in general.

R646 Discovery Miles 6 460 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

It is generally assumed that regional integration leads to stability and peace. This book is the first systematic study of the impact of European integration on the transformation of border conflicts. It provides a theoretical framework centred on four 'pathways' of impact and applies them to five cases of border conflicts: Cyprus, Ireland, Greece/Turkey, Israel/Palestine and various conflicts on Russia's border with the EU. The contributors suggest that integration and association provide the EU with potentially powerful means to influence border conflicts, but that the EU must constantly re-adjust its policies depending on the dynamics of each conflict. Their findings reveal the conditions upon which the impact of integration rests and challenge the widespread notion that integration is necessarily good for peace. This book will appeal to scholars and students of international relations, European politics, and security studies studying European integration and conflict analysis.

The EU, Promoting Regional Integration, and Conflict Resolution (Hardcover, 1st ed. 2017): Thomas Diez, Nathalie Tocci The EU, Promoting Regional Integration, and Conflict Resolution (Hardcover, 1st ed. 2017)

This book provides a comprehensive study into the promotion of regional integration as a central pillar of European Union (EU) relations with the rest of the world. It is a strategy to deal with a core security challenge: the transformation of conflicts and, in particular, regional conflicts. Yet to what extent has the promotion of regional integration been successful in transforming conflicts? What can we regard as the core mechanisms of such an impact? This volume offers a comprehensive assessment of the nexus between promoting integration and conflict transformation. The authors systematically compare the consequences of EU involvement in eight conflicts in four world regions within a common framework. In doing so, they focus on the promotion of integration as a preventative strategy to avoid conflicts turning violent and as a long-term strategy to transform violent conflicts by placing them in a broader institutional context. The book will be of use to students and scholars interested in European foreign policy, comparative regionalism, and conflict resolution.

R5,351 Discovery Miles 53 510 Ships in 7 - 11 working days

This handbook comprehensively defines and shapes the field of Critical European Union Studies, sets the research agenda and highlights emerging areas of study. Bringing together critical analyses of European Union politics, policies and processes with an expert range of contributors, it overcomes disciplinary borders and paradigms and addresses four main thematic areas pertaining to the study of the European Union and its policies: * Critical approaches to European integration; * Critical approaches to European political economy; * Critical approaches to the EU's internal security; * Critical approaches to the EU's external relations and foreign affairs. In their contributions to this volume, the authors take a sympathetic yet critical approach to the European integration process and the present structures of the European Union. Furthermore, the book provides graduate students and faculty with ideas for future research activity and introduces critical analyses rooted in a broad spectrum of theoretical perspectives. The Routledge Handbook of Critical European Union Studies will be an essential reference for scholars, students, researchers and practitioners interested and working in the fields of EU politics/studies, European integration, European political economy and public policy, EU foreign policy, EU freedom of movement and security practices, and more broadly in international relations, the wider social sciences and humanities.

Cyprus: a Conflict at the Crossroads (Hardcover): Thomas Diez, Nathalie Tocci Cyprus: a Conflict at the Crossroads (Hardcover)
Thomas Diez, Nathalie Tocci
R2,032 Discovery Miles 20 320 Out of stock

This unique collection of essays provides a multi-faceted analysis of the Cyprus conflict. It sees the conflict both at a historical and at an analytical crossroads, and brings together leading scholars from various disciplines to provide fresh perspectives on the long-standing issues surrounding Cyprus.

The four parts of the book deal first with domestic determinants of the conflict and its resolution, then with external influences, before comparing Cyprus to other conflict cases and finally including approaches beyond political science. The application of different methodological and theoretical approaches, from rational choice to gender studies, to a single case allows for their comparison and make this a must-read not only for those interested in Cyprus, but for all students of conflict resolution.

Die britische Europapolitik ist eines der am haufigsten untersuchten Themen der Aussenpolitikforschung. Dabei konzentrieren sich die meisten Arbeiten auf die Erklarung eines vorherrschenden Euroskeptizismus. Das Buch betont demgegenuber, dass die britische Europadebatte zumindest seit den sechziger Jahren von einer Vielzahl von Konstruktionen des Regierens in Europa gepragt ist, die sich in ihren zugrundeliegenden Legitimationskriterien unterscheiden. Im Mittelpunkt stehen dabei verschiedene Auspragungen des Leitbilds einer "Europaischen Wirtschaftsgemeinschaft," die sich vor allem uber ihre okonomische Leistungsfahigkeit legitimiert."

The EU and Global Climate Justice - Normative Power Caught in Normative Battles (Hardcover): Franziskus von Lucke, Thomas Diez,... The EU and Global Climate Justice - Normative Power Caught in Normative Battles (Hardcover)
Franziskus von Lucke, Thomas Diez, Solveig Aamodt, Bettina Ahrens
R3,004 Discovery Miles 30 040 Out of stock

This book examines the European Union's contribution to the development of the global climate regime within the broader framework of global justice. It argues that the procedural dimension of justice has been largely overlooked so far in the assessment of EU climate policy and reveals the EU has significantly contributed to the development of the climate regime within its broader efforts to 'solidarise' international society. At the same time, the book identifies deficits of the climate regime and limits to the EU's impact and explains why the EU policy towards global climate change has shifted over time. Finally, however, it argues that these policies should not be assessed in terms of being either wholly positive or negative, but that they are shot through with ambiguities. This book will be of key interest to scholars, students and practitioners of climate change, climate politics, environmental and climate justice studies, and more broadly to EU Studies and International Relations.
