Global governance in Autocratic Context: The Implementation of EITI in Kazakhstan

Abstract: The paper evaluates the functioning of global standards arrangements in an autocratic context. Through the case of an international governance initiative the Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative (EITI), the paper investigates how the standardised practices of global governance arrangements are implemented in post-Soviet state autocratic state of Kazakhstan. In doing so the present paper analysis the transnational character of the initiative and how it operates within the recipient country. The findings of the EITI in Kazakhstan illustrate, that domestic context and regime type influence the operationalisation of the initiative. The paper argues that the adoption of EITI standardised requirements follow a specific internal logic that disconnects from its initial purpose. The paper as such urges scholars and policy advisers to further investigate on how global governance arrangements transcend at domestic levels this particularly within autocratic regimes. The paper draws its analytical findings from interviews and survey analysis conducted in Kazakhstan in 2015. Full details

PGR-seminar: PhD-student in Politics, Nicholas Dickinson presents his paper:Advice-Giving and Party Loyalty: An Informational Model for the Socialisation Process of New British MPs

Abstract for presentation: Post-election socialisation has frequently been identified as a source of parliamentarians’ disposition towards party loyalty. Yet a recent study of the socialisation experiences of new members in the British Parliament, using tenure as proxy for socialisation, found little evidence of an effect on party loyalty (Rush and Giddings, 2011). This paper develops a new model of parliamentary socialisation and uses the same data to demonstrate that post-entry socialisation did in fact change legislators reported likeliness to behave in accordance with their party leadership’s wishes. Specifically, a framework based on information exchange (advice giving) is used to show that positive interactions with party actors are associated with increased loyalty. Controlling for initial levels of loyalty, members who received more useful advice from party actors were more likely to rate themselves as highly influenced by the party leadership. Full details

Ana Almuedo-Castillo (Exeter): Resisting the sectarian: A paradigm for peacebuilding in Lebanon

The politisation of sectarianism and the institutionalisation of confessionalism as a form of organisation for the political, social and economic life have encouraged the perpetuation of sectarian conflict as a form of interaction in Lebanon. The entrenchment of sectarianism in Lebanese politics and society have drawn a picture of immobile sectarian boundaries and conflict. However, the study of sectarian conflict requires the acknowledgement that sectarianism may not be the only political and social paradigm operating in Lebanon, whilst it is necessary that we study spaces where this paradigm is contested. Resistance and contestation of the sectarian conflict is an ongoing process in any divided society. Lebanese citizens marrying abroad as a way of avoiding the current Lebanese law by which all citizens have to marry under one of the 18 officially recognised religions represent a community that have made the informed decision of not abiding with the sectarian system. These Lebanese may not have mobilised as a group to claim their right to civil marriage; they do form not a collectivity of actors or a social movement, but through their act they have found the path of least resistance to the imposition of sectarianism upon their lives. Everyday forms of resistance against sectarianism happen at the bottom of the society as a quiet, invisible and even unintended practice of contestation. The study of this practice may in the first place provide us with a critical approach to sectarianism, while in the second place it advances a new paradigm for the study of peacebuilding as a bottom-up and intrinsic local process.

Jan Pieter Beetz (Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam): Practice makes Perfect, or at Least More Realistic. On a Contribution of Political Realism to International Political Theory

In an age of globalization, the rise of International Political Theory (IPT) can hardly come as a surprise. Economic, technological, political and social developments act as catalysts for a new set of normative questions. The core task of normative political philosophy is to prescribe desirable forms of politics. On the one hand, this concerns the question what should a political order achieve? The contemporary debate surrounds the concept of justice, often understood in socio-economic terms. On the other hand, political philosophers reflect on the question of political legitimacy. When do subjects have to accept rule over them as authority?[1] The real-world developments that animate IPT, such as climate change or the legitimacy of European integration, require political philosophers to answer these questions in a novel and dynamic environment. My claim is that the dominant methodological approaches to reflect upon these normative questions – ‘idealism’ and ‘empiricism’ – are ill suited for the task at hand. These methods remain largely insensitive to the novel context or rely on a static account thereof. An international political theory that aims to contribute toward solutions should methodologically accommodate the dynamic environment at every stage. In this article, I propose that political realism offers a particularly attractive practice-dependent method to theorize norms in this dynamic context. I will illustrate my claim through an application of this method to a salient political challenge in IPT: the EU’s democratic deficit. Full details

Jelle Leunis (Vrije Universiteit Brussel): Managing the Use of Armed Force: From Democratic Control to Regulatory Governance

Private military and security companies (PMSCs) are now a familiar presence in complex security environments. Nevertheless, the past decade has illustrated that traditional mechanisms of managing the exercise of armed force, designed with the aim of controlling the uniformed military, were often ill-equipped to hold PMSCs to account. In reaction, diverse stakeholders joined hands to bring this governance framework up-to-date, resulting in several new regulatory initiatives including the Montreux Document and the International Code of Conduct for Private Security Service Providers. This paper maps the implications of these initiatives for the norm on the democratic control of armed force. It does so in three steps. First, on the basis of existing literature, it reviews the established ideal-type of democratic control of the military. Secondly, it develops a new ideal-type of regulatory governance of PMSCs, to help us make sense of the values that underlie the aforementioned regulatory initiatives. This ideal-type is tested in three case studies covering a broad spectrum of PMSC clients working in complex security environments, including a government agency, a private corporation and a non-governmental organisation. The paper concludes, thirdly, with comparing these two ideal-types. It reviews the opportunities for the stakeholders and the population to participate in the governance of armed force and maps the impact of the proliferation of PMSCs and of the instruments to govern them on the traditional norm of the democratic control of armed force. On the basis of this comparison, the paper argues that democratic involvement in the governance of PMSCs is no longer founded on a representational basis, as was the case with the military, but on a participatory basis. Since not all stakeholders have an equal opportunity to participate in these governance processes, this might endanger the democratic oversight of armed force. Full details

Laszlo Horvath, Susan Banducci, Ekaterina Kolpinskaya (Politics), Samuel Vine (CLES): Stereotype threat effects on women's political engagement

Research on symbolic or non-policy effects of gender-balanced legislatures documented 'role model effects', positively impacting women's political engagement as citizens. Yet most of the evidence relies on observational data making it difficult to disentangle whether gender balanced contexts are also cultures where women are simply more politically engaged. Similarly, little has been proposed as to what psychological mechanisms connect women's minority position in politics to citizen disengagement, and the presence of role models to more political engagement. I am presenting pilot study results of two experiments. Broadly, they propose Stereotype Threat accounting for women's decreased psychological engagement with politics, as well as impaired performance on and confidence about political knowledge tests, under numerical imbalance. The opposite, role model effects, are tested under improved numerical balance setups, ranging from ‘token’ (minimal) presence, ‘critical mass’ presence (roughly a third), and complete parity. The basic, ‘picture treatment design’ is administered on an online sample. Study 2 is a laboratory experiment which further investigates if ST processes still apply if the negative emotion of approach (anger), rather than avoidance (fear), was induced. In an attentional bias paradigm, we expose all subjects to image pairs containing one stereotyping and one non-stereotyping political group. With data collected through an eye-tracking device we are able to establish if subjects approach or avoid stereotyping imagery. We further investigate whether the challenge state reverses ST effects, with greater psychological engagement with politics, and improved performance on the political knowledge test. Full details

Arlinda Rrustemi (University of Leiden): State-Building through Life Stories: Incorporating Local Perspectives

The presentation focuses on an ongoing research about statebuilding in Kosovo using life stories, comparing the international and local perspectives of international statebuilding. The first stage of the project included the identification of the international perceptions (NATO, EU, UNMIK & EULEX) in state building and the second stage included the identification of the local perspectives (political elites, ngo's, etc) in state building through life stories. The talk will revolve around the design and objectives of the research project and some preliminary findings. The processes promoted by the international community in Kosovo focus mainly on institutions, and it uncovers the main similarities and differences with the emerging local perspectives. The latter emphasizes more the societal processes rather than institutional ones. Recommendations follow on how to bridge the gap between the international and local perspectives since they seem to differ on some aspects and correspond on others. Full details

Denise Laroze (University of Essex): Policy space and opportunity to enter: when a party collapses

The entry and success of new parties has become a regular event in modern democracies. From the emergence of green to protest parties, new movements have entered the electoral arena. This paper addresses one of the less studied aspects of new parties: the dynamic process of party exit and entry into politics. The paper argues that changes to the party system, produced by the collapse of a political party, can lead to the successful entrance of new parties in the next election. The premise is that one party’s loss is a future one’s gain. The empirical results provide strong evidence that the size of the collapsed party has a substantive impact on the level of new parties’ success. Full details

Johannes Jaeger (Universität Würzburg): Party Regulations and the legality of Online Voting for Candidates, Leaders and Policy

Online participatory instruments are gaining popularity among political parties. After the German Piratenpartei’s temporary electoral success of the between 2011-2013, the interest of party scholars, journalists and practitioners across Europe on the topic has exploded. Online participation is considered, inter alia, to win (back) younger generations for the democratic process and to stop the “decline of party membership". It’s a matter of common knowledge that political parties and the democratic systems themselves in almost the entire Western world are experiencing similar processes such as the dissolution of social classes or religious traditions as well as low interest of citizens in traditional democratic participation. However, the legal systems in which political parties operate differ widely. Despite the strong international interest in the participatory and deliberative adjustments of the German Piratenpartei, the legal obstacles towards the establishment of a liquid intra-party democracy in Germany have received little attention. Unlike political parties in other jurisdictions, the German political parties are highly regulated by the German Political Parties Act and e.g. the Federal Elections Act. These Acts also include various provisions for the internal decision-making process. This short presentation seeks to explain the possibilities and the limits of modern forms of internet-based participation such as online-voting in leadership elections and candidate selection within German parties.

Dr Anika Gauja (University of Sydney) - Researching Reform: A Qualitative Approach to Understanding Party Change

In this seminar, I discuss some of the theoretical and empirical challenges of studying how political organisations, such as parties, change over time. Reflecting back on a recently completed project on comparative party reform, I address three main questions: first, what is the nature of organisational change, and how can it be measured? Second, what do we mean when we speak of the political party in comparative research? Is it possible to reconcile structure with agency in these organisations? Finally, how can we study organisations that don’t want to be studied? To answer these questions I put forward a three-tiered theoretical framework for evaluating change that captures intra-organisational, competitive and systemic pressures for change, and argue the benefits of adapting heuristics and approaches from related disciplines in furthering our understandings of the internal workings of political parties. I outline a qualitative methodology for the study of parties that triangulates a diverse range of sources of evidence beyond formal rules changes, including interviews, ethnographic observations, and the systematic analysis of party documents and speeches as strategic rhetorical devices.

Stijn van Voorst (Tilburg University, the Netherlands):To evaluate or not to evaluate: the initiation of ex-post legislative evaluations by the European Commission

Abstract: Theoretically there are many possible reasons for the European Commission to evaluate its legislation, including the desire to improve policy-making and the need to scrutinize implementation by national authorities. While the Commission nowadays has the norm that both spending and non-spending activities should be evaluated, its own data and existing research show that only a minority of major EU legislation is in fact evaluated. My paper tries to explain this variance in the initiation of ex-post legislative evaluations by applying a rational and political model of evaluation. It tests these models with the help of two datasets, one containing all major EU laws from 2000-2004 and one containing all ex-post legislative evaluations from the Commission from 2000-2014.

Thibaud Deruelle (Exeter):The Engineer and the Bricoleur: alternative policy solutions in the Multiple Streams Framework

This paper investigates the viability of alternative policy solutions before the decision-making process. Building on the literature about the Multiple Streams Framework, new conceptual elements are used to explain the lock-in of policy solutions. While policy solutions are generally perceived to be mere ideas, specific organizational elements of the policy network show that concrete initiatives can play the same role. In order to make sense of these engineered solutions, the decision-makers have to act as bricoleurs. They recombine initiatives and ideas to develop a fully fleshed policy. This paper is designed as a plausibility probe to determine whether the engineers and the bricoleur can be reasonably considered a relevant conceptual addendum in the field of organizational theory in public policy. It aims to reconstruct the process that led to the creation of a European policy for Disease Prevention and Control. More specifically the process tracing developed should lead to a clearer understanding of the formation of policy solutions, by identifying the work done by policy entrepreneurs and by labelling them either advocates or engineers. Then the role of the Bricoleur will be assessed in the light of the policy that was eventually adopted. Full details

Alex Neads: Accountability, cohesion and reforming the military institution in Sierra Leone

Following Sierra Leone’s brutal Rebel War, the British government embarked upon a comprehensive programme of Security Sector Reform in Sierra Leone. Central to this was the British-led International Military Advisory and Training Team (IMATT), which sought to transform Sierra Leone’s rag-tag, predatory and coup-prone collection of militias into a cohesive, capable, and accountable armed force. This process sought to address a fundamental tension between civilian control and military potency which lies at the heart of democratic civil-military relations. Scholarly approaches to democratic civil-military relations have accounted for this tension variously; through reference to military demographics, professionalization and training, or direct political control of the armed forces. Instead, this paper argues that by focusing on the Republic of Sierra Leone Armed Forces (RSLAF) as a bureaucratic institution, IMATT attempted to underpin both democratic accountability and sustainable military cohesion as mutually supporting facets of the military institution. Yet while the end result may have been a relatively accountable and cohesive armed force, this process fell short of professionalization in the western sense; indeed the process of institutional consolidation in the RSLAF proved to be inherently political.

Martin Moorby "The Limits of Political Emancipation".

The presentation clarifies the themes of emancipation from alienation and the comparison of politics and religion in Marx’s ‘On the Jewish Question’. The author argues that ‘species being’ plays two roles in this text: as both an explanatory framework and as teleological conception of human emancipation. Marx thought the human essence the ensemble of social relations (namely, mental conceptions, the body of state institutions, and civil society), and this framed his response to the ‘Jewish question’ as well as yielding an analysis sensitive to the internal relation between these constitutive ‘moments’ of social life. Moorby argues that, rather than a causal account of the relation between civil society, the state, and social consciousness, Marx’s philosophy treats the relation between these elements as mutual and internal.

The Virtues of Anarchy Reconsidered: Workshop hosted by the Centre for Advanced International Studies

The concept of anarchy remains under-theorised in International Relations (IR) despite being central to the discipline for over a century. IR has tended to elaborate or reject realist accounts of anarchy. Debate has therefore tended to polarise around the acceptance of the tragic logic of anarchy, attempts to tame its worst effects or to move beyond it altogether. If anarchy has any virtues, following Bull and Waltz most argue that these lie in the defence of the autonomy of states. This stance generates predictable responses that question the ontological and/or normative virtues of both statism and anarchy. But does a rejection of the former necessarily entail a rejection of the latter? Few have taken up Ken Booths challenge to see anarchy as part of the solution to the problems of world politics, rather than the problem itself, and fewer still see anarchy as the constitutive feature of politics as such. This workshop will draw together scholars conducting research that raises challenging questions regarding the virtues of anarchy, from within IR and without. Full details

International Relations and the British Academy: Distinctiveness in the past, present and future.

The discipline of International Relations has a longstanding relationship with the British academy, and British IR has a distinct self-image. The British tradition, or way of doing IR, is renowned for its pluralism and interdisciplinary nature as well as its connection to a certain body of work that is perceived as distinctly British. Following a one-day workshop exploring emerging trends in postgraduate International Relations (IR) research, this roundtable offers reflections on the impact and influence of the British Academy on the field, and what is at stake in this so-called distinctiveness.Professors Chris Brown, Andrew Linklater and David Armstrong will reflect upon past, present and future trajectories for International Relations in the British Academy; the speakers will discuss how their work has shaped the British discipline of International Relations, future paths open to the field and their reactions to the contemporary academic climate. This roundtable is the culmination of a one-day workshop focussed on what makes British IR distinctive and diverse from other academic communities and what form this diversity takes.This event is a rare opportunity to hear three distinguished professors, renown for their influential contributions to British IR, speaking together. If you would like to attend please RSVP to lgf202@exeter.ac.uk This event is sponsored by the University of Exeter, the British International Studies Association Postgraduate Network and Poststructural Politics Working Group.
