Football is the most popular sport in the world. Globalisation and commercialisation of the game, however, have created new conflicts and challenges. This book explores the role of the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) within the rising significance of football in Asia, drawing on three key theoretical perspectives: globalisation, neo-institutionalism and governance, as well as comprehensive data from interviews and archive material. It explores the organisational structure of AFC, its decision-making processes, relations with other actors, and policies put forward. To understand the specificities AFC has faced in its 60-year history, the broader historical, political, economic, socio-cultural and geographic contexts of football in Asia are taken into account.

Since the Roman Empire, leaders have used ideology to organize the masses and instil amongst them a common consciousness, and equally to conquer, assimilate, or repel alternative ideologies. Ideology has been used to help create, safeguard, expand, or tear down political communities, states, empires, and regional or world systems. This book explores the multiple effects that competing ideologies have had on the world system for the past 1,700 years: the author examines the nature and content of Christianity, Islam, Confucianism, Protestantism, secularism, balance-of-power doctrine, nationalism, imperialism, anti-imperialist nationalism, liberalism, communism, fascism, Nazism, ethno-nationalism, and transnational radical Islamism; alongside the effects their originators sought to craft and the consequences they generated. This book argues that for centuries world actors have aspired to propagate through the world arena a structure of meaning that reflected their own system of beliefs, values and ideas: this would effectively promote and protect their material interests, and - believing their system to be superior to all others – they felt morally obliged to spread it. Radical transnational Islamism, Hybel argues, is driven by the same set of goals. This book will be of interest to students and scholars of international politics, international relations theory, history and political philosophy.

Betreibt Russland eine imperialistische Außenpolitik? Oder lässt es sich eher als pragmatische Großmacht beschreiben – und wenn ja, warum? Mit dem Zusammenbruch der UdSSR löste sich der Nexus zwischen der Identität Russlands als Nachfolgestaat der Sowjetunion und seinem außenpolitischen Verhalten. Sicher geglaubte Gewissheiten über die Rolle Russlands in der Welt gingen verloren. Das vorliegende Buch legt mithilfe eines rollentheoretischen Ansatzes den Blick auf das russische Selbstverständnis frei und geht der These nach, dass die unter Putin wiedergewonnene außenpolitische Handlungsfreiheit zur Ausgestaltung eines begrenzten, dafür aber sakrosankten Repertoires an Identitäten genutzt wird. Als empirische Grundlage dienen zwei Fallstudien: Die Kooperation mit den USA im Rahmen der Terrorismusbekämpfung nach dem 11. September 2001 sowie der russisch-georgische Krieg im August 2008. Während der enge Schulterschluss mit Washington als Abkehr vom Imperialismus-Paradigma gedeutet wurde, nährte der Fünftagekrieg in weiten Teilen des westlichen Medienbetriebes den Verdacht, dass russische Entscheidungsträger einem Imperialismus-Syndrom unterworfen sind. Die vorliegende Untersuchung verdeutlicht, dass der Schlüssel zum Verständnis Russlands in seiner Selbstverortung gegenüber dem Westen (in Gestalt der USA als relevantem Alter) liegt. Dadurch sind politische Entscheidungen wie etwa die Anerkennung des Kosovo eng mit Konzepten wie Status und Mitsprache verbunden. Solche Entscheidungen bilden aus Moskauer Sicht häufig einen negativen Referenzpunkt, auf dessen Grundlage Russland einen eigenen Rahmen angemessenen außenpolitischen Verhaltens konstruiert. Das Buch leistet einen wichtigen Beitrag zum besseren Verständnis russischer Außenpolitik. Der uneindeutige westliche Diskurs um die sogenannte Ukraine-Krise verdeutlicht die Relevanz der hier angebotenen Perspektive für eine einfühlsamere Interpretation und ein klareres Verständnis russischen außenpolitischen Verhaltens im neuen Jahrhundert.

This book looks into the role and effects of public apologies in international relations. It focuses on two major questions - why and when do states issue apologies for historic crimes and how and under what conditions are these apologies successful in remedying conflictive relationships? In recent years, we have witnessed an unseen popularity of apologies, with numerous politicians, managers and clergymen being eager to apologise and atone for the wrong-doings of their countries or institutions. Public apologies, thus, are a new and highly interesting, while nevertheless still puzzling phenomenon, the precise role and meaning of which in international politics remains to be explored. This book sets out to do exactly this. Focusing in particular on state apologies, it assembles twelve detailed empirical case studies which deal with the two questions raised above. In the first part, the case studies reconstruct the processes in which state representatives react to calls for public atonement, and in the second part the case studies explore the reactions to the apology and evaluate signs for its success or failure. All case studies are based on a theoretical framework which is outlined in the introduction to the book and helps develop tentative assumptions about the emergence and the effects of state apologies, drawing on different strands of literature, such as political science, philosophy, sociology or psychology. This work will be of great interest to students and scholars of conflict reconciliation, international relations and transitional justice.

This book examines the impact of the information revolution on international and domestic security, attempting to remedy both the lack of theoretically informed analysis of information security and the US-centric tendency in the existing literature. International Relations and Security in the Digital Age covers a range of topics, including: critical infrastructure protection, privacy issues, international cooperation, cyber terrorism, and security policy. It aims to analyze the impact of the information revolution on international and domestic security; examine what existing international relations theories can say about this challenge; and discuss how international relations theory can be developed to better meet this challenge. The analysis suggests that Liberalism’s focus on pluralism, interdependence and globalization, Constructivism’s emphasis on language, symbols and images (including ‘virtuality’), and some elements of Realist strategic studies (on the specific topic of information warfare) contribute to a better understanding of digital age security. This book will be of interest to students of security studies, globalization, international relations, and politics and technology.

The first comprehensive presentation and discussion of Jeremy Bentham's contributions to international relations theory. Bentham is best known amongst political theory scholars as most of his brilliant work addresses legal theory, reform, and the ideal relationship between the governors and the governed. This new text rectifies many of the erroneous assumptions made about Bentham's contributions to the field, and critically examines his place within the confines of the liberal theoretical tradition, arguing that Bentham's preoccupation with security resulted in often conflicting and inconsistent ideas about the conduct of nations in the international realm. International relations scholars have long needed clarification and an accurate presentation of Bentham's work, but additionally, his constant struggle to ensure security of expectation resulted in a striking ambivalence about world politics and how states ought to engage them. Bentham's work was pivotal to the development of the international climate we now face - he coined the word 'international' - and was one of the first thinkers to consider the globalized community that we see before us. He also struggled, sometimes in vain, to reconcile such a globalized community with the need to ensure security. His struggle was essentially no different than that facing international relations scholars today. Within the context of Bentham's work, this book also addresses the broader context of international relations theory itself, and demonstrates the strengths and weaknesses of the international relations theory traditions, in particular, liberalism and realism. This book will be of strong interest to students and scholars of international relations and political theory.
