Beschreibung:

The search for durable peace in lands torn by ethno-national conflict is among the most urgent issues of international politics. Looking closely at five flashpoints of regional crisis, Sumantra Bose asks the questions upon which our global future may depend: how can peace be made, and kept, between warring groups with seemingly incompatible claims? Global in scope and implications but local in focus and method, Contested Lands critically examines the recent peace processes in Kashmir, Israel-Palestine, Bosnia, Cyprus and Sri Lanka for an answer. Israelis and Palestinians, Turkish and Greek Cupiots, Bosnia`a Muslims, Serbs and Croats, Sinhalese and Tamil Sri Lankans, and pro independence, pro- Pakistan, and pro- India Kashmiris share homelands scarred by clashing aspirations and war. Bose explains why these lands became zones of zero-sum conflict and boldly tackles the question of how durable peace can be achieved. The cases yield important general insights about the benefits of territorial self ?rule, cross-border linkages, regional cooperation, and third-party involvement- and the risks of a deliberately gradual (`incremental`) strategy of peace building. Rich in narrative and incisive in analysis, this book takes us deep into the heartlands of conflict- Jerusalem, Kashmir`s Line of Control, the divided cities of Mosstar in Bosnia and Nicosia in Cyprus, Sri Lanka`s Jaffna peninsula. Contested Lands illuminates how chronic confrontation can yield to compromise and coexistence in the world`s most troubled regions. Printed Pages: 336. Buchnummer des Verkäufers

Inhaltsangabe:

The search for durable peace in lands torn by ethno-national conflict is among the most urgent issues of international politics. Looking closely at five flashpoints of regional crisis, Sumantra Bose asks the question upon which our global future may depend: how can peace be made, and kept, between warring groups with seemingly incompatible claims? Global in scope and implications but local in focus and method, Contested Lands critically examines the recent or current peace processes in Israel-Palestine, Kashmir, Bosnia, Cyprus, and Sri Lanka for an answer.

Israelis and Palestinians, Turkish and Greek Cypriots, Bosnia's Muslims, Serbs, and Croats, Sinhalese and Tamil Sri Lankans, and pro-independence, pro-Pakistan, and pro-India Kashmiris share homelands scarred by clashing aspirations and war. Bose explains why these lands became zones of zero-sum conflict and boldly tackles the question of how durable peace can be achieved. The cases yield important general insights about the benefits of territorial self-rule, cross-border linkages, regional cooperation, and third-party involvement, and the risks of a deliberately gradual ("incremental") strategy of peace-building.

Rich in narrative and incisive in analysis, this book takes us deep into the heartlands of conflict--Jerusalem, Kashmir's Line of Control, the divided cities of Mostar in Bosnia and Nicosia in Cyprus, Sri Lanka's Jaffna peninsula. Contested Lands illuminates how chronic confrontation can yield to compromise and coexistence in the world's most troubled regions--and what the United States can do to help.

About the Author: Sumantra Bose is Professor of International and Comparative Politics at the London School of Economics and Political Science.

Buchbeschreibung Palgrave Macmillan Feb 2017, 2017. Buch. Buchzustand: Neu. Neuware - This book empirically discusses recent struggles over land and mining, exploring state-society relations conflicts on various scales. In contrast with the existing literature, analyses in this volume deliberately focus on large-scale land use changes both in relation to the expansion of industrial mining and to agro-industry. The authors contend that there are significant parallels between contestations over different variants of resource extractivism, as they reflect the same global trends and processes. Chapters draw on critical theoretical approaches from political ecology, political economy, spatial theory, contentious politics, and the study of democracy. The authors not only provide empirical insights on actual resource struggles from different world regions based on in-depth field research, but also contribute to theory-building by linking concepts from various critical approaches to one another, developing a perspective for analysing struggles over resources related to current global crisis phenomena. 273 pp. Englisch. Artikel-Nr. 9781137588104
