Defining Terrorism: The Evolution Of Terrorism As A Legal Concept In International Law And Its Influence On Definitions In Domestic Legislation, Reuven Young Dec 2006

Defining Terrorism: The Evolution Of Terrorism As A Legal Concept In International Law And Its Influence On Definitions In Domestic Legislation, Reuven Young

Boston College International and Comparative Law Review

This Article examines the evolution of the definition of terrorism at international law and tests the widely held view that international law does not provide a definition of terrorism. It contends that by abstracting from the common elements and themes present in the United Nations General Assembly and Security Council resolutions concerning terrorism, and the multi-lateral anti-terrorism conventions, treaties, and protocols, one can discern a core international law definition of terrorism. The Article then compares this definition to those in the domestic legal systems of the United States, United Kingdom, India, and New Zealand to determine whether (1) international law ...

Hegemony (霸權/領導權) Nov 2006

Hegemony (霸權/領導權)

Cultural Studies@Lingnan 文化研究@嶺南

英語 hegemony 一詞的希臘文和拉丁文形式是egemon,egemonia。據雷蒙‧威廉斯的考證,hegemony的本義是指一個國家的領導人或統治者,但在傳統上這個詞主要用來表示國與國之間的政治統治關係,同中國古代政治思想中「霸」的概念有些類似,都含有以實力迫使別國臣服的意思。所以,hegemony 在中文裏通常被譯為「霸權」。例如人們談論得越來越多的文化霸權,在當代世界語境中,系指西方發達國家憑藉強大的經濟、政治和軍事實力強制推行其意識形態和文化價值觀。在這個意義上,文化霸權和文化帝國主義基本上是作為同義詞使用的。

『霸權』一詞容易令人聯想到強者持著特權令弱者得不到公平對待的情形,在本期陳燕谷的文章帶出『領導權』的譯名,比較貼合現今社會的實況。 Hegemony一字的出處和演變,有關『霸權』、『領導權』和『統識』的概念,在其他文章已有解說,本文試圖從『領導』和『統識』的方向,從香港教育中舉出例子。

Militarization, Globalization, And Islamist Social Movements: How Today’S Ideology Of Islamophobia Fuels Militant Islam, Thomas Ehrlich Reifer Sep 2006

Militarization, Globalization, And Islamist Social Movements: How Today’S Ideology Of Islamophobia Fuels Militant Islam, Thomas Ehrlich Reifer

Human Architecture: Journal of the Sociology of Self-Knowledge

Today the world faces the prospect of an endless war and intensifying global polarization. While extremist forms of Islam have gotten great attention, the media and academic scholarship have been much slower in addressing the varieties and vibrancy of Islamic mobilization that are leading to a global Islamist resurgence. How does one explain the paradox represented by the simultaneous duality of the efflorescence of U.S.-led neoliberal globalization and militarization and Islamist mobilization on a global scale? Exploring this central question, the author concludes that until the present day selective discourse on Islamophobia is replaced with a nuanced understanding ...


No Race To The Swift: Negotiating Racial Identity In Past And Present Eastern Europe, Manuela Boatcã Sep 2006

No Race To The Swift: Negotiating Racial Identity In Past And Present Eastern Europe, Manuela Boatcã

Human Architecture: Journal of the Sociology of Self-Knowledge

Portrayals of Eastern European countries as "bridges" between East and West are commonplace both in the media and in the political discourse. While the question of the historical origin of Europe's East-West divide is still under heavy dispute among social scientists, it can be argued that it was the Orientalist discourse of the 19th century that decisively shaped the content of the present categories of Western and Eastern Europe and made policies of demarcation from "the Orient" an important strategy of geopolitical and cultural identification with Europe. The enduring quality of Orientalism's effects on both national self-definitions and ...

Nepantlera-Activism In The Transnational Moment: In Dialogue With Gloria Anzaldúa’S Theorizing Of Nepantla, Kavitha Koshy Jun 2006

Nepantlera-Activism In The Transnational Moment: In Dialogue With Gloria Anzaldúa’S Theorizing Of Nepantla, Kavitha Koshy

Human Architecture: Journal of the Sociology of Self-Knowledge

Through this article I wish to stress the criticality of transnational encounters. I use the word "criticality" to underscore the pivotal role transnational experiences play in a globalized world, for they can frame and challenge international politics. When in transnational encounters the (mis)interpretations and (mis)understandings of "others" are not addressed, positive social transformation is pretty much negated. Most often, such limited encounters perpetuate the negative or positive stereotypes projected by the dominant western, Eurocentric ideology and thus help to maintain systems of power and privilege, i.e., an unjust status quo. In a search for solutions in what ...


Globalization And The Secularization Of Immigration Policy: Competing Influences On Immigrant Integration Policy In Germany, France, Britain And The United States, Pamela Irving Jackson, Roderick Parke Jun 2006

Globalization And The Secularization Of Immigration Policy: Competing Influences On Immigrant Integration Policy In Germany, France, Britain And The United States, Pamela Irving Jackson, Roderick Parke

Human Architecture: Journal of the Sociology of Self-Knowledge

This article examines the extent to which anti-racist policy development is on the front line of the struggle between the denationalizing forces of global economic integration and the renationalization efforts inherent to the securitization of immigration policies. Sassen (1999) contends that global economic integration has stimulated labor demands and migration patterns that have fostered the transnationalization of immigration policy and provided some protections to immigrants. Jacobson (1996) and Hollifield (1992) have demonstrated global convergence in human rights standards. But national governments have responded to the supra-national influences in anti-racist and minority integration policy development by substituting internal security goals for ...


Writing Queer Across The Borders Of Geography, Desire, And Power, Miguel Malagreca Jun 2006

Writing Queer Across The Borders Of Geography, Desire, And Power, Miguel Malagreca

Human Architecture: Journal of the Sociology of Self-Knowledge

In this essay, I position myself as a queer writer in the confines of language, nationality and sexuality with the intention of opening a venue for a non essentialist I to dialogue with anybody situated within the highly politicized arena of queer politics. I refer to my politics differently throughout this essay: I call them politics of the real, or politics from a transitional space, or politics of the radical alterity, or simply queer politics. Political representation is a continuously sliding terrain connecting the personal and the political, a terrain with no security, opened up for dialogue and gestures that ...


Resisting Legibility On The Borders: Opposition To The Violent Intersections Of Race, Nationality, And Sexuality, Kevin Allred Jun 2006

Resisting Legibility On The Borders: Opposition To The Violent Intersections Of Race, Nationality, And Sexuality, Kevin Allred

Human Architecture: Journal of the Sociology of Self-Knowledge

Through an exploration of the capital, cultural, and political impossibility inscribed onto the queer body of color by the nation, this article attempts to interrogate violence against those bodies (specifically utilizing the case of transgender Latina Bibi Barajas) in an attempt to excavate productive strategies of resistance able to counter that violence. By building an alternative archive of resistance, it becomes possible to resist speaking for those whose bodies are subjected to violence and to oppose pulling them into legibility. Instead, one can grieve them in order to powerfully critique the invisible systems of oppression and domination that produce and ...
