Sobre el libro:
The responsibility to protect (R2P) is at a crossroads, the latest in a journey that is only ten years old. This book present debates on the prevention of mass atrocities to R2P’s normative prospects.
The book addresses key questions as a way to inform and drive on-going conversations about R2P. Moving beyond well-rehearsed debates about the tensions and meanings around sovereignty in R2P practice, the book focuses on advancing the credibility of the preventive dimensions of R2P, whilst simultaneously examining the extent of R2P’s current value-added in state decision making—especially for the 2011 actions in Libya and Côte d’Ivoire.
Questions addressed include:
- Did the R2P framework of the 2005 World Summit Declaration intend to mould sovereignty, and if so how?
- Can R2P break or revert cycles of violence?
- How can one determine the appropriate duration and timing of the preventive and protective phases of R2P?
- Who/what should be the targets of preventive action, and how does this have an impact on R2P diplomacy?
- Under which conditions are particular policy tools likely to be effective?
- Which state and regional actors are best suited to using these tools?
- What are the barriers to successful preventive action—how can they be overcome?
- What capacities need to be built (at the national, regional, and international levels) in order to operationalize R2P’s preventive agenda?
Examining a wide range of countries, this work will be essential reading for students and scholars of international human rights, international organizations, peacekeeping and conflict resolution.
- New methodological tools used to describe party-voter linkages
- New analytical framework developed to understand party-voter linkages
Millions of enfranchised people live in abject poverty in democracies around the world. Yet in representative democracies, the success or failure of political parties rests on their ability to effectively engage voters. In today’s highly unequal and individualized societies, the diversity of voters along socioeconomic, religious, and other lines presents an obstacle for parties vying for electoral success. How, then, can widespread, crushing poverty still exist in stable democracies, if every citizen has a vote? Two wildly different parties, Chile’s right-wing UDI and Uruguay’s left-wing Frente Amplio, have achieved stunning victories in this supposedly inhospitable political landscape. They have done so by simultaneously segmenting and strategically harmonizing their linkages to distinct cross-sections of voters in each society. While that electoral strategy makes for a winning hand for parties in fragmented modern societies, it perpetuates the gross inequalities that characterize the social, political, and economic landscapes of the developing democratic world. This book develops a new analytical and conceptual framework to unveil and explain segmented representation, revealing new implications for democratic societies.
