About this book

This book examines and offers suggestions for how post-conflict practices should conceptualize and address harms committed by child soldiers for successful social reconstruction in the aftermath of mass atrocity. It defends the use of accountability and considers the agency of youth participants in violent conflict as responsible moral entities.

Reviews

Thoughtful, enlightening and thought-provoking. This is a must read for anthropologists, psychosocial workers and persons interested in child mental health and criminal law.' - Grace Akello, Faculty of Medicine, Gulu University, Uganda 'Fisher introduces fresh insight and more creative options to important moral and practical challenges. Her candid approach transcends the simple moral calculus and impractical policy conventions through a well informed and practically guided engagement that speaks to proponents of children's rights, justice advocates and peace practitioners.' - Hugo van der Merwe, Director of Research, Transitional Justice Programme, Centre for the Study of Violence and Reconciliation, South Africa JV

' West African Migrationscomplicates past 'isms' and present 'scapes' of our global era by humanizing the homeland or the diaspora as a space of constantly shifting conjunctures, monologues, and disjunctures-ultimately conditioned by the trans-migrant's state of mind. In this timely volume, Africa and the West locate a neutral nexus for a long overdue dialogue. A must read for scholars and general readers seeking new meanings for our liminal existence within and without increasingly artificial borders.'-Niyi Afolabi, associate professor, Department of Spanish and Portuguese and Department of African and African Diaspora Studies, University of Texas at Austin and co-editor of Trans-Atlantic Migration: The Paradoxes of Exile ' West African Migrationsis an important and timely contribution to our understanding of the new processes of identity formation and migration in the age of neo-liberal globalization. The contributions in this volume present crucial insights into the complex experiences of African migrants in the Western world as well as the changes they are enacting in their new host countries. It is a must read.'-James Genova, associate professor and program coordinator for History, The Ohio State University-Marion 'In this timely contribution to the growing body of migration studies in Africa, Okome and Vaughan have brought together a range of contributions that is both rigorous and insightful. A highly recommended book!'-Insa Nolte, Centre of West African Studies, University of Birmingham, UK

PART I: TOWARD AN APOLAR WORLD Concerts and Dissonance A Precarious Polarization The System without a Name (1989 ) PART II: THE NEW ARISTOCRATS 'Fireside Chats' Western 'Nobility' The Imperative of Governance PART III: THE REVENGE OF GLOBALIZATION Concert of Contention The Emerging Powers as Arbiters An Anomic International System The status quo of the modern world order, a diplomatic entente best characterized as 'connivance diplomacy,' is examined here through its history, its functions, and its failures. Reveals gaps in standard IR theory on 'polarity' (e.g. unipolarity, bipolarity, apolarity) in world powers and politics and proposes a new analysis Demonstrates methods for achieving goals in a world ruled by connivance diplomacy Building on the experience of the Concert of the Powers, Bertrand Badie develops the concept of 'connivance.' It is partway between armistice and peace, conflict and cooperation, and bridges realist emphasis on power and the liberal and constructivist focus on norms and rules. Badie makes a strong case for its utility in an increasingly multipolar world composed of powerful units with different cultures and values but which nevertheless need to live with one another in peace." - Richard Ned Lebow, professor of International Political Theory, Department of War Studies, King's College, London "Bertrand Badie's account of exclusive multilateralism is an effective antidote against too much enthusiasm for the many small groupings, formal like the Security Council and less formal like the G8, which are populating today's international relations. His critique of the West's usurpation of the leadership role in these clubs not only enhances misgivings of former victims of colonialism and imperialism. Even if one believes that cooperation among great powers to prevent major war is not a bad thing, Badie's call for inclusion serves as a necessary counterweight against too much devotion toward the powers that be." - Harald Mueller, professor of International Relations, Goethe University and executive director, Peace Research Institute Frankfurt "While I have more confidence than Bertrand Badie in institutional constraints and in Great Powers' tendency to reciprocally block each other's hegemonial ambitions out of self-interest, I profoundly share his concern with their ability to conclude bargains detrimental to less powerful participants in the state system. This is clearly one of the best books on the dilemmas of Great Power cooperation that I have read in many years." - Matthias Schulz, professor of History of International Relations and Transnational History, University of Geneva
