This book, by one of the most experienced authorities on the subject, presents a deep analysis of the very difficult current situation in Afghanistan. Covering a wide range of important subjects including state-building, democracy, war, the rule of law, and international relations, the book draws out two overarching key factors: the way in which the prevailing neopatrimonial political order has become entrenched, making it very difficult for any other political order to take root; and the hostile region in which Afghanistan is located, especially the way in which an ongoing ‘creeping invasion’ from Pakistani territory has compromised the aspirations of both the Afghan government and its international backers to move the country to a more stable position.

Violence Against Children adopts in its title the exhortation of Nobel Laureate Amartya Sen, "Making Human Rights Real," which also represents the leitmotif of the book. It examines the prevalence of violence against children in Africa, the Asia Pacific Region, Europe, Latin America and the Caribbean, and in the United States, and explores major ways of its prevention. Making human rights real engenders the challenge of helping all children to be free from violence and to lead a life replete with genuine nurture and the elimination of all violence. Only in this manner will the goal of the United Nations 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development —target 16.2—be achieved and the child as a rights-bearing individual realized in her/his fullness. The specially commissioned chapters that make up the volume have been written by renowned scholars, researchers and advocates. They coalesce to provide an overview of the challenges facing children exposed to violence worldwide, and they advance discussions of the measures which are available and necessary for the prevention of violence against children. The book is intended for policy-makers, researchers and students of the social sciences and human rights who are interested in ending all the widespread maltreatment of children in our societies and our time.

Contested Holy Cities

Examining contestation and conflict management within holy cities, this book provides both an overview and a range of options available to those concerned with this increasingly urgent phenomenon. In cities in India, the Balkans and the Mediterranean, we can see examples where religion plays a dominant role in urban development and thus provides a platform for conflict. Powerful religious hierarchies, the generation of often unregulated revenues from donations and endowments, the presence of holy sites and the enactment of ritualistic activities in public spaces combine to create forms of conflicts which are, arguably, more intense and more intractable than other forms of conflicts in cities. The book develops a working definition of the urban dimension of religious conflicts so that the kinds of conflicts exhibited can be contextualised and studied in a more targeted manner. It draws together a series of case studies focusing on specific cities, the kinds of religious conflicts occurring in them and the international structures and mechanisms that have emerged to address such conflicts. Combining expertise from both academics and practitioners in the policy and military world, this interdisciplinary collection will be of particular relevance to scholars and students researching politics and religion, regional studies, geography and urban studies. It should also prove useful to policymakers in the military and other international organisations.

Quoi qu'en dise la légende dorée de la littérature, il existe une invisible et puissante fabrique de l'universel littéraire. Cette République mondiale des Lettres a son méridien de Greenwich, auquel se mesurent la nouveauté et la modernité des œuvres. Ce livre retrace l'histoire et décrit la structure de ce monde littéraire. Mais le pays de la littérature n'est pas l'Ile enchantée des formes pures. C'est un univers inégal, un territoire où les plus démunis littérairement sont soumis à une violence invisible. L'histoire de la littérature universelle qu'on propose ici est aussi celle des révoltés et des révolutionnaires qui sont parvenus à subvertir la loi littéraire et à arracher, par l'invention de formes nouvelles, leur liberté d'écrivains. La lecture ainsi renouvelée des textes de Kafka, Joyce, Faulkner ou Beckett, mais aussi de Arno Schmidt, Màrio de Andrade, Ibsen, Kateb Yacine, Ramuz, Michaux, Cioran, Naipaul, Juan Benet, Danilo Kis, Ngugi wa Thiong'o et bien d'autres " ex-centriques ", pourrait fournir des armes critiques à tous ceux qui se rebellent contre les évidences et les arrogances des gardiens de la loi littéraire.
