Federalism

by Graham Smith, Federalism Books available in Docs, PDF, EPUB, Mobi, Textbook, Kindle Format. Download Federalism book, This book provides a comprehensive and detailed examination of the successes and failures of federalism in a diverse range of multi-ethnic polities and societies. It offers excellent coverage of the experiences of a wide range of contemporary states with specially commissioned contributions from established authorities. An introductory chapter introduces the reader to the nature of federations, the political philosophies that underpin federalism, the characteristics of federal formations, and highlights some of the theories as to why this system of government has failed in some cases to provide ethno-regional stability. A concluding chapter draws upon the findings and examines the prospects for federalism in the light of the acceleration towards greater economic interdependency and local political fragmentation, in the post-Cold War world.

Political Participation In A Multi Ethnic Society

by Marlina Handayani, Political Participation In A Multi Ethnic Society Books available in Docs, PDF, EPUB, Mobi, Textbook, Kindle Format. Download Political Participation In A Multi Ethnic Society book, This study analyses the political participation of residents in Jakarta, with particular reference to the 2007 local direct governorate elections. It examines the respondents' orientation to politics and their levels of political participation. The political reform that took place in 1998 and brought about the downfall of Suharto's regime changed the nature of electoral rules and trends in the Indonesian electoral politics. One striking feature of these trends is the adoption of a direct election system for the government heads at all levels of governance, from the President to mayors and regents. On 23 July 2007, the Constitutional Court passed a judicial review of the Law Number 32 of 2004 on Regional Autonomy in which independent candidates were allowed to exercise their political rights to be elected as heads of regional governments. The 2007 election for the local government in Jakarta voted a new government to administer the city until 2012. For the first time, a large number of the population of Jakarta took part in the election process. The elections for the local government are the starting point for the type of political participation emerging in Jakarta. The study is based upon a questionnaire survey. The return rate of 77.3 per cent (309 out of 400 of the questionnaires), considering the political sensitivity in Jakarta, is encouraging. The study finds that the respondents are in the medium level of politics, as 73.8 per cent of them cast their votes in the first ever Jakarta local governorate elections. They participate in politics, by voting, campaigning, and discussing but not on a very active basis. Age, marital status, ethnicity, income and occupation also play important roles in determining participation in politics. However, the study concludes that gender and education have negative relationship to political participation in Jakarta.

Commission For Racial Equality

by Ray Honeyford, Commission For Racial Equality Books available in Docs, PDF, EPUB, Mobi, Textbook, Kindle Format. Download Commission For Racial Equality book, In the United Kingdom, as in the United States, race relations are surrounded with taboos defined by the politically correct concepts of what Ray Honeyford calls the race relations lobby. This lobby, championed by the Commission for Racial Equality (CRE) has a vested interest in depicting the United Kingdom as a society rotten with endemic racism, and its ethnic minorities as victims doomed to failure. An outgrowth of the Race Relations Act of 1976, the Commission was founded in response to worthy concerns about race and patterned after its American prototype, the Congress of Racial Equality. Its constant demands for increased powers have only increased with the coming into power of the New Labour Party. That makes Ray Honeyford's critique all the more urgent. Honeyford exposes the policies and practices of the Commission to public view, encouraging informed debate about its need to exist. The CRE possesses considerable legal powers—powers which seriously undermine the great freedoms of association, contract, and speech as-sociated with the United Kingdom. Without denying the presence of racial prejudice, Honeyford shows that the picture of the United Kingdom as a divisive nation is a serious misrepresentation. Placing the CRE in its historical and political context, Honeyford outlines its powers, and analyzes its formal investigations in the fields of education, employment, and housing. He also examines its publicity machine and its effect on public and educational libraries. He points out the danger of uncritically replicating the American experience. According to Honeyford, Americans have replaced a melting-pot notion of society, with all citizens loyal to a national ideal, with a "tossed-salad" concept which encourages the creation of self-conscious, separate, and aggressive ethnic groups, each claiming special access to the public purse, and having little regard for national cohesion and individual liberties.

Minority Governance In Europe

by Kinga Gál, Minority Governance In Europe Books available in Docs, PDF, EPUB, Mobi, Textbook, Kindle Format. Download Minority Governance In Europe book, Minority Governance in Europe is the first volume in the new ECMI/LGI Series on Ethnopolitics and Minority Issues. The Series is a joint venture with the European Centre for Minority Issues (ECMI http: //www.ecmi.de). These multi-author works are the result of the Centrels cooperative research projects, often lasting a number of years. The resulting books attempt to present a coherent and comprehensive picture of the area under investigation. The majority of countries in the former Eastern bloc feature multiethnic societies. Decentralization and the transition to a free market environment have made this characteristic of nation-states more visible and have raised the claim for a proactive approach toward multiethnic community management.

National Identity In Serbia

by Vassilis Petsinis, National Identity In Serbia Books available in Docs, PDF, EPUB, Mobi, Textbook, Kindle Format. Download National Identity In Serbia book, The autonomous province of Vojvodina in Serbia is little-known in the English-speaking world, even though it is a territory of high significance for the development of Serbian national identity. Vojvodina's multi-ethnic composition and historical experience has also encouraged the formation of a distinct regional identity. This book analyses the evolution of Vojvodina's identity over time and the unique pattern of ethnic relations in the province. Although approximately 25 ethnic communities live in Vojvodina, it is by no means a divided society. Intercultural cohabitation has been a living reality in the province for centuries and this largely accounts for the lack of ethnic conflict. Vassilis Petsinis explores Vojvodina's intercultural society and shows how this has facilitated the introduction of flexible and regionalized legal models for the management of ethnic relations in Serbia since the 2000s. He also discusses recent developments in the region, most notably the arrival of refugees from Syria and Iraq, and measures the impact that these changes have had on social stability and inter-group relations in the province.
