Spatializing Authoritarianism
The analysis of “new authoritarianisms” is rarely based on their entanglements across sites, scales and administrative boundaries. Far too often, authoritarian developments are analysed as endogenous problems, based on internal social dynamics or ‘problematic’ governments. Literature on authoritarian developments in the urban often stresses repressive or unreliable forms of policing.

Charles Tripp and the comparative politics of the Middle East: Power, resistance, ideology and the state
As one of the main recipient states of aid worldwide, and as a close ally of the US and the EU, aid dependence and external intervention are some of the key themes in Jordanian politics. It is hard to find a major Jordanian state institution that is not in one way or another the recipient of US and/or European attempts at capacity building. Further, Jordan has participated in various interventions abroad – in UN peacekeeping forces, but also in military interventions in Afghanistan, Iraq and Syria.

This article explores contemporary efforts at Arab-Israeli normalization in Jordan. By mid-2011 the escalating violence in Syria had effectively closed the overland trade route connecting Europe and the Arab Gulf via Syria and Jordan. Despite the emergence of an alternative route via the Suez Canal, several international and national NGOs have since – building on previous attempts at Arab-Israeli normalization – attempted to establish a transit trade route via Israel and Jordan.

From discrimination against Chinese-read migrant workers, via intraregional competition for China’s favour, to collaboration on infrastructural megaprojects, vaccine development and digital surveillance techniques: Arab-Chinese relations in times of COVID-19 are complex and multi-layered. Yet, established regime-centric approaches often fail to see this complexity by almost exclusively focusing on questions of authoritarian regime collaboration.

The spatiality and temporality of urban violence
The book is concerned with how the city, with its particular characteristics of the urban, its spatio-temporal configuration and its rhythms (Lefebvre, 2013; Löw, 2010), produces and shapes violence, both in terms of conditions of the built environment, and by providing particular ‘urban’ social relations. Our contribution builds on the insight that violence itself is a spatio-temporal practice with generative capacities, which produces, shapes and transforms urban space and time (or SpaceTime) in the long turn, also through the impact of memory.

How has the COVID-19 pandemic affected refugees and their protection? To respond to this question, Nadine Segadlo, Ulrike Krause, Franzisca Zanker, Hannah Edler conducted a study using a qualitative questionnaire in six countries in East Africa, Southern Africa and West Africa, namely Ghana, Kenya, Nigeria, South Africa, Uganda and Zimbabwe. In this paper, they explore the information provided by the 90 respondents and focus on three main areas.

The consequences of threat constructions and security-dominated politics in many Asian states and regions have been all too apparent recently: The invocation of “security” and the often violent practices of security agents constitute a powerful “key mode of governing”. In offering various empirical studies guided by the pragmatic frameworks of securitisation and Critical Security Studies, this Special Issue (edited by Werner Distler) aims at deconstructing security as a governing mode in the Asian context.

Since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic migrant communities have become immobile–stuck in the destination countries, or unable to continue their journeys in transit or in origin countries. This project brings together a collection of essays that seek to spell out how migrant communities in the Global South, namely in Mexico, Nepal, Qatar and Zimbabwe, have been affected by, and reacted to the pandemic.

Zahra R. Babar,

In this article, the author gives an example for how particular policies during COVID19 in Qatar have affected the lives of migrants there, and in their countries of origin. Originally aimed at improving the conditions of migrant communities in Qatar, the Wage Protection System has further restricted the mobility of these communities.

Anita Ghimire,

COVID-19’s impact on migrants has now been well noted in Nepal, as well. This article starts with a discussion about whether/how the ongoing pandemic has altered trajectories and ambitions of current and aspiring migrants and their spouses who remain in Nepal. It then reflects on the pre-COVID migration policies of Nepal and analyses what policy/programme shifts might be needed to address the new situation.

Luisa Gabriela Morales Vega,

In this article, the author shows how the Pandemic aggravated the already precarious conditions of migrants. When the Pandemic started in Mexico, the authorities were already upgrading their migration control measurements on several levels. Deeper coordination with the Trump Administration, suspension of asylum processes in the USA, militarization of the migration management and bureaucratic institutions in Mexico, have all been taking place simultaneously by March 2020.

Joyce Takaindisa,

For years, migrants from Zimbabwe have been undergoing xenophobic policies and discourses in South Africa and Botswana. This article demonstrates how the South African government has utilized the pandemic to further feed into these policies and discourses. From official statements to social media campaigns, the pandemic has been used as an opportunity for South Africa first discourse to grow and “coronationalism” to emerge, while depicting migrant communities, especially from Zimbabwe, as a risk to the public health.

Helga Dickow, Nadia Beider and Yonatan Gez wrote a paper in response to the scarcity of literature on “religious nones” - who are not affiliated with any religious tradition - in sub-Saharan Africa, offering an overview of this understudied subject and pointing towards avenues for future research.

The article builds an analytical framework to study the relation between security and informality and the extent to which it contributes to producing hegemony in local politics.

This working paper presents the experiences of four individual researchers who introspect on issues of insiderness, outsiderness and privilege in academia. Those researchers are from different regions of the world and with different positionalities, who carry out research in Asia, Latin America, the Middle East and Africa. All of them are currently based at the Arnold Bergstraesser Institute.
