Internationale Politik studieren

Eine Einführung

Author: Martin List

Publisher: Springer-Verlag

ISBN: 3531901818

Category: Political Science

Page: 208

View: 5072

Das Buch versucht, den Anforderungen der neuen Studienlandschaft gerecht zu werden und verbindet die Knappheit der Darstellung mit dem Anspruch, zur eigenständigen Analysefähigkeit internationaler Politik hinzuführen. Diese Fähigkeit ist mit "studieren" gemeint, und der Text legt dafür in 15 knappen Kapiteln die Grundlage. Sie führen, in didaktisch innovativer Form fiktiver Streitgespräche, ein in die Forschungsprogramme der Internationalen Politik und verdeutlichen deren Ertrag in Anwendung auf unterschiedliche Sachbereiche internationaler Politik (Sicherheitspolitik, Handels- und Umweltpolitik, Menschenrechtsschutz). Daneben wird exemplarisch (USA, D) in die Außenpolitik-Analyse eingeführt. Fragen der Konfliktbewältigung (Nord-Süd-Konflikt, Konfliktregion Naher Osten) und der Institutionalisierung internationaler Politik (internationale Organisationen und Regime) werden durchgehend behandelt.

Ein Tag, der alles zerstörte. Eine Mutter, die ihr Kind verlor. Und ihr Wunsch nach Vergebung, der nie verging – eine bewegende Geschichte um Liebe, Reue und Hoffnung. Sie verlor ihre Tochter an dem Tag, an dem die Bombe fiel. Ama hatte sich mit Yuko verabredet, um mit ihr über den Mann zu sprechen, den Yuko so liebte und Ama gleichermaßen verabscheute. Doch dazu kam es nie. Ama war zu spät – und ihre Tochter und ihr Enkel tot. Ama ließ Nagasaki hinter sich, wanderte nach Amerika aus, aber der Schmerz blieb. Nie konnte sie sich verzeihen, gab sich selbst die Schuld am Tod, ja sogar am Schicksal ihrer Tochter. Sie zog sich immer mehr zurück und lebte in ihrer eigenen Welt voll Trauer und Schmerz – bis ein junger Mann an ihre Tür klopft. Er sagt, er sei Hideo, ihr totgeglaubter Enkel. Zuerst will sie ihm nicht glauben, doch dann öffnet sie ihr Herz und lässt die Hoffnung herein ...

Al-Qaeda in Afghanistan: Nation-building and Combating Al-Qaeda’s Ideology

Author: Matthew Bugeja

Publisher: Anchor Academic Publishing (aap_verlag)

ISBN: 3954893061

Category: Social Science

Page: 204

View: 9530

This book explores the threats posed by al Qaeda in Afghanistan and examines the Western narrative of whether it is necessary to eliminate the militant threat in order to stabilize the country. It is argued that Al Qaeda's ideology has now become stronger than its ability to threaten international security; that its aim to become an agent of change within the Muslim world has come to outweigh the threat attributed to it as a conventional, kinetic, and terrorist entity. The current instability within Afghanistan is not due to al Qaeda's physical presence there but rather an amalgamation of factors. It will be argued that the U.S.-led invasion in 2001 has contributed to Al Qaeda's weakening there but it has not contributed to stabilize Afghanistan itself. The instability in Afghanistan will require a strong, long-term commitment by the international community, while the fight against Al Qaeda will require more focus on combating its ideology, and less on military action.

Doing Political Science and International Relations

Theories in Action

Author: Heather Savigny,Lee Marsden

Publisher: Macmillan International Higher Education

ISBN: 0230344135

Category: Political Science

Page: 272

View: 2380

This is an ideal introduction for all embarking on a degree in Politics or International Relations. Starting from the premise that the 'doing' of political science is an active, and interactive, process of critical evaluation, it addresses the crucial question of how – as well as what – we should study. The book examines a wide range of theoretical perspectives and shows how they can be usefully applied to questions such as 'Why do states go to war?' and 'In whose interests does the political system work?' Chapters are organized by core areas of study – such as power, the state, policy, institutions, the media, security, political economy – and show how theories can be used and applied within each topic. Key benefits: - shows how to apply and critique theories with confidence - provides the complete analytical toolkit needed to study Politics and International Relations - incorporates case studies and examples from around the world
