ORIENT
In order to support democratic ideals of socio-economic justice, public participation and representation, established efforts at "democracy promotion" in the MENA must be abandoned. The promotion of procedural democracy has proven to be reconcilable with socio-economic authoritarianisms and presents no challenge to authoritarian power structures.

The COVID-19 pandemic has brought into the spotlight both past imbalances and chances for convivial scholarship. In this article, we consider main challenges that are at the same time opportunities for better cooperation: African contributions to academic journals must increase, including on conceptual issues. The material investment in Africa’s research institutions has to increase as well.

This issue of IQAS seeks to focus on the 1960s in Asia, covering East, South-east and South Asia and discussing the decade from perspectives that have often escaped notice. It sheds a critical light on the notion of the “global sixties” and focuses on the local in order to grasp the spirit of the 1960s in selected Asian countries. It looks at individual nation-states but also transcends their borders, tracing transnational and transregional connectivities, mobilities and relations

Tilman Lüdke,

Tilman Lüdke recently published a working paper on whether sectarianism – or rather, sectarian violence – in Syria and in Iraq is the outcome of societal upheaval in times of crisis or a historically grown phenomenon that can only be controlled by authoritarian regimes.

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.

From collaboration on infrastructural megaprojects to vaccine development and digital surveillance techniques: Arab Gulf–Chinese relations in times of COVID-19 are complex and multi-layered. Nonetheless, established regime-centric, analytical approaches often fail to see this complexity by almost exclusively focusing on questions of collaboration between authoritarian regimes. Such approaches not only ignore the diversity of involved actors and the inherently transregional nature of contemporary authoritarian power, but also bear the risk of reproducing binary notions of authoritarianism vs.

The proliferation of civic demands for democratisation through material infrastructures, including those pertaining to energy, water, currency, and transport, indicates a desire to transform how societal needs are provided, and how technologies of provision might act as ‘loci of hope’ (Bernardo, 2010) for achieving a more desirable and equitable future (Dawson, 2020).

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.
