Fast Policy: Experimental Statecraft at the Thresholds of by Jamie Peck, Nik Theodore

By Jamie Peck, Nik Theodore

We inhabit a forever accelerating and more and more interconnected global, with new principles, fads, and models relocating at social-media pace. New coverage rules, in particular “ideas that work,” are actually capable of finding not just a world viewers but in addition transnational salience in remarkably brief order.

Fast Policy is the 1st systematic therapy of this phenomenon, one who compares methods of coverage improvement throughout speedily relocating fields that emerged within the worldwide South and feature quick been followed worldwide⎯conditional money transfers (a social coverage software that stipulations funds on behavioral compliance) and participatory budgeting (a kind of citizen-centric city governance). Jamie Peck and Nik Theodore seriously learn the becoming transnational connectivity among policymaking arenas and modes of coverage improvement, assessing the consequences of those advancements for modern policymaking. Emphasizing that coverage versions don't easily go back and forth intact from websites of invention to websites of emulation, they problematize quick coverage as a phenomenon that's actual and consequential but liable to misrepresentation.

Based on fieldwork performed throughout six continents and in fifteen international locations, Fast Policy is a necessary source in offering a longer theoretical dialogue of coverage mobility and in providing a technique for ethnographic learn on international social policy.

By Dr Z H Kour, Z.H. Kour

Эта книга повествует о британской оккупации Адена в 1839-1872 гг. Англия заняла Аден в 1839 г., чтобы предотвратить возможные действия Франции и из-за его превосходного местоположения. Текст, главным образом, основан на документах Индийского архива в Лондоне и Шотландского архива в Эдинбурге. Текст монолитен и посвящен следующим вопросам: 1) расширению поселения, 2) торговле, three) администрации и управлению, four) деловыми отношениями с султаном Лахиджа.
Отмечены особенности этого периода - постоянное препирательство между политическим и военным командующими и их деловые отношения с Ост-Индской компанией и британским правительством, которое изрядно «зажимало» любое положительное действие, плюс мелкие подкупы племенных вождей во внутренних районах, ради удержания мира.
