Institutional activities have remarkably transformed East Asia, a region once known for the absence of regionalism and regime-building efforts. Yet the dynamics of this Asian institutionalization have remained an understudied area of research. This book offers one of the first scholarly attempts to clarify what constitutes institutionalization in East Asia and to systematically trace the origins, discern the features, and analyze the prospects of ongoing institutionalization processes in the world’s most dynamic region. Institutionalizing East Asia comprises eight essays, grouped thematically into three sections. Part I considers East and Southeast Asia as focal points of inter-state exchanges and traces the institutionalization of inter-state cooperation first among the Southeast Asian states and then among those of the wider East Asia. Part II examines the institutionalization of regional collaboration in four domains: economy, security, natural disaster relief, and ethnic conflict management. Part III discusses the institutionalization dynamics at the sub-regional and inter-regional levels. The essays in this book offer a useful source of reference for scholars and researchers specializing in East Asia, regional architecture, and institution-building in international relations. They will also be of interest to postgraduate and research students interested in ASEAN, the drivers and limits of international cooperation, as well as the role of regional multilateralism in the Asia-Pacific region.

Southeast Asia is one of the world's most diverse and complex regions. At times it has been a beacon of hope for the developing world, at other times it has been synonymous with insecurity and economic failure. The second edition of this popular and critically acclaimed text has been extensively revised throughout and provides up-to-date coverage of the forces and dynamics that are shaping the region at both the national and regional level. Contemporary Southeast Asia contains specially commissioned chapters – including seven which are entirely new to this edition – from leading area specialists. Carefully edited to ensure systematic coverage of key areas, it provides an accessible and thematically-structured comparative introduction to Southeast Asia and its distinctive patterns of strategic, political, economic and social organisation.

This volume is a collection of papers written by nationals or former nationals of the respective country in ASEAN and Northeast Asia. Unlike other works written by scholars outside ASEAN or East Asia, it offers an insider’s point of view of the 10 ASEAN states, China, Japan and South Korea on regional community building. While a nationalist perspective may permeate throughout the study, it is also clear that pursuing regional cooperation is considered to be important by the respective author, denoting the non-exclusivity between nationalism and regionalism and the mutual reinforcement of the two. Each author of this volume has made a deliberate effort to introduce and survey the developmental challenges and experiences of his or her country from a historical perspective. All authors, without exception, have emphasized the importance and advantages in staying with ASEAN or linking up with ASEAN by China, Japan and South Korea in political-security, economic and socio-cultural terms. Their papers also reveal that the self-help and self-strengthening mechanism emphasized by the ASEAN Plus Three process will take time to bear fruits. In the meantime, it seems that bilateral interactions and cooperation between ASEAN and Northeast Asian states remain to be more dominant as shown in this study. One can argue that bilateral interactions are the building block of multilateralism interactions. To be sure, there is a deliberate effort in this study to highlight "unity in diversity" in East Asia in general and ASEAN in particular.

Since the late 1980s, many East Asian countries have become more multicultural, a process marked by increased democracy and pluralism despite the continuing influence of nationalism, which has forced these countries in the region to re-envision their nations. Many such countries have had to reconsider their constitutional make-up, their terms of citizenship and the ideal of social harmony. This has resulted in new immigration and border-control policies and the revisiting of laws regarding labor policies, sociopolitical discrimination, and socioeconomic welfare. ?This book explores new perspectives, concepts, and theories that are socially relevant, culturally suitable, and normatively attractive in the East Asia context. It not only outlines the particular experiences of nation, citizenship, and nationalism in East Asian countries but also places them within the wider theoretical context. The contributors look at how nationalism under the force of multiculturalism, or vice versa, affects East Asian societies including China, Japan, Korea, Taiwan, and Hong Kong differently. The key themes are: Democracy and equality; Confucianism’s relationship with nationalism, cosmopolitanism and multiculturalism; China’s use of its political institutions to initiate and sustain nationalism; the impact of globalization on nationalism in South Korea, Taiwan and Japan; the role of democracy in reinvigorating indigenous cultures in Taiwan.

Written in a clear and accessible style Globalization and Social Policy critically evaluates the relevance and implications of globalization in relation to both the academic study of social policy and social welfare provision. The book examines the implications of globalization; analyses the extent to which social policies contribute to and shape globalizing stratergies; explores the degree to which globalization gives rise to systematic changes in the funding, regulation and provision of welfare; traces the changing nature of social policy as a consequence of globalization; and examines how `globalization' undermines national autonomy in social policy

Im Weltmaßstab gesehen erscheinen die afrikanischen und lateinamerikanischen Sozialwissenschaften als peripher. Doch entstehen hier aus der Auseinandersetzung mit lokal relevanten gesellschaftlichen Fragestellungen originelle, eigenständige Bereiche der soziologischen Forschung und Lehre, die als konterhegemoniale Strömungen konzeptualisiert werden. An der Schnittstelle von Wissenschaftssoziologie und Globalisierungsforschung verbindet dieser Band theoretische und empirische Perspektiven auf Entwicklungen und Positionierungen der »Soziologien des Südens« und ist ein Gewinn für alle, die sich kritisch mit dem Eurozentrismus der Sozialwissenschaften befassen.

Magisterarbeit aus dem Jahr 2008 im Fachbereich Politik - Sonstige Themen, Note: 1,3, Ludwig-Maximilians-Universitat Munchen (Geschwister-Scholl-Institut), Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Nach dem weitgehend friedlichen Ende des Apartheidregimes und dem Wandel zu einem demokratischen System wurde die Regenbogennation" Sudafrika von vielen als neuer Hoffnungstrager des schwarzen Kontinents" gefeiert. Wahrend Nelson Mandelas Politik nach den ersten freien Wahlen im Jahr 1994 primar im Zeichen der Versohnung, Nationenbildung und Demokratisierung stand, wurde schon bald deutlich, dass die Verwirklichung dieser gesellschaftlichen Ziele eine grundlegende Veranderung der soziookonomischen Strukturen voraussetzt. Mit der enormen Kluft zwischen einer in Armut lebenden, vorwiegend schwarzen Bevolkerungsmehrheit und einer kleinen, vorherrschend weissen Oberschicht, wurden sowohl eine echte Versohnung der Rassen als auch die langfristige Demokratisierung der Gesellschaft unmoglich bleiben. Nur im Rahmen eines gerechten und nachhaltigen Entwicklungsprozesses wurden auch die Errungenschaften des politischen Herrschaftswechsels und der gesellschaftlichen Offnung dauerhaft Bestand haben. Sudafrika stand damit entwicklungspolitisch vor der zentralen Herausforderung, die stagnierende Wirtschaft wettbewerbsfahig zu machen, um Wachstum zu stimulieren und gleichzeitig einen Umverteilungsprozess einzuleiten. Grundsatzlich bedingen sich diese Entwicklungsziele, da langfristiges Wirtschaftswachstum stabile soziookonomische Strukturen erfordert und soziale Reformen ohne einen dynamischen okonomischen Hintergrund nicht umgesetzt werden konnen. Doch gerade diese Interdependenz der Ziele ist das entscheidende Problem. Keine der bisher in Sudafrika implementierten Entwicklungsstrategien konnte sowohl Okonomie als auch Gesellschaftsstruktur gleichermassen positiv beeinflussen. Wahrend Sudafrika in den letzten Jahren ein steigendes Wirtschaftswachstum verzeichnen konnte, nahm die Verteilungsunglei
