Onlinedossier "Innerstaatliche Konflikte"
Die ägyptische Regierung geht hart gegen Oppositionelle und Kritiker vor. Auf anhaltende Terroranschläge auf der Sinai-Halbinsel und in Kairo reagiert sie vor allem militärisch. Die wirtschaftliche Misere, einer der Hauptgründe für die Konfliktanfälligkeit des Landes, verschärft sich durch die Covid-19-Pandemie weiter.

Konfliktdossier "Innnerstaatliche Konflikte"
Seit dem Amtsantritt von Premierminister Abiy Ahmed Ali leidet Äthiopien am "Fluch der Transformation". Angesichts seines mutigen Reformkurses fürchten die alten Eliten um ihre Pfründe und lassen ethno-nationalistische Konflikte im Vielvölkerstaat eskalieren. Eine Heuschreckenplage und Covid-19 wirken als Konfliktbeschleuniger.

After decades of irrelevance, the 2011 regime changes in Egypt, Libya and Tunisia stimulated hope that political parties would eventually strengthen their importance across North Africa, as in the projected future democracies the varieties of opinions across the citizenries were expected to be needed represented better in the political processes. Local as well as international organisations engaged in tailormade programmes for the setup and support of democratic and inclusive political parties.

This article adds the case of Egypt to the themed section’s overall research interest, examining the extent to which the Egyptian government has reacted in its migration policies to incentives provided by the EU. It shows that Egypt’s 2016 ‘Anti-Smuggling Law’ (ASL), praised as a ‘milestone’, was crucial for the regime’s further power consolidation. Building on Tsourapas’s concept of ‘migration interdependence’, Egypt’s migration policy rather fulfils the purpose as ‘dramaturgical act’, aimed more at pleasing an international audience than improving migrants’ living conditions.

Newsletter of the American Political Science Association’s Organized Section on Migration and Citizenship
Migrant civil society has played an influential role in the deliberations of the Global Compact for Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration (GCM). Setbacks notwithstanding, this influence can be found in the final document regarding the language used as well as the inclusion of civil society’s agenda and policy goals. The challenge for migrant civil society now is to get access to and eventually influence the complex process of monitoring and implementation of the GCM goals. This complexity is just one of several obstacles for meaningful civil society involvement.

The term civil society covers a variety of organisational forms, levels of operation, and advocacy. This also holds true for the spectrum of civil society organisations in the field of migration and development. This chapter discusses the role of the various actors, ranging from Hometown Associations (HTAs) and diaspora organisations to transnational advocacy networks and global migrant civil society.

This paper will analyze a process that attempts to democratize the governance of migration within and from Asia through connectivity from below: the Asian Inter-Parliamentary Caucus on Labour Migration. The caucus was initiated by the Migrant Forum in Asia (MFA), the major regional network of migrants’ rights organizations, in 2007. Since 2008, meetings have been held in parallel to the ASEAN Inter- Parliamentary Assembly (AIPA).

MIGRACIÓN y DESARROLLO
La emergente gobernanza mundial de la migración se caracteriza por su fragmentación en términos de instituciones, normativas y convenciones subyacentes. La Organización Interna- cional para las Migraciones (oim) ocupa un lugar peculiar dentro de este marco: por un lado, hasta hace muy poco se había situado fuera de la Organización de las Naciones Unidas (onu), se considera un organismo «no normativo» y ha actuado principalmente como un proveedor de servicios basado en beneficios para los Estados nacionales.

MIGRACIÓN y DESARROLLO
The emerging global governance of migration is characterized by its fragmentation in terms of institutions, underlying norms and conventions. The International Organization for Migration (iom) holds a peculiar place within this framework: On the one side, it has been si- tuated outside the United Nations System until very recently, considers itself a «non-normative» agency, and has mostly acted as a profit-based service provider for nation-states.

While Jordan is one of the main targets of US and European attempts at ‘democracy promotion’, it also demonstrates a remarkably stable authoritarian system. Existing literature on ‘democracy promotion’ however mostly fails to see a connection between authoritarian reinforcement and external efforts at moral intervention. The dominant approaches to the study of ‘democracy promotion’ widely suffer from a narrow focus on developing policy recommendations and/or from a lack of empirical research.

External attempts at “democracy promotion” are one of the defining features of global liberalism. A core principle guiding this Essential Reading is that the topic at hand needs to be unequivocally situated against the backdrop of a critical analysis of liberal thought. A main shortcoming of much of the mainstream literature on “democracy promotion” is the tendency to ignore related fundamental questions.

How to rethink authoritarian power in ways that better account for authoritarian connections beyond nation-state boundaries? By reconceptualizing the context in which to analyze authoritarian power, we bring to light transregional authoritarian connections between the secondary port cities Aqaba/Jordan and Buenaventura/Colombia.

Africa Yearbook Volume 16, Politics, Economy and Society South of the Sahara in 2019
Some global trends affected sub-Saharan Africa, but not homogeneously: while eco-nomic growth was back in most parts of Eastern and some parts of West Africa, both Southern and Central African economies continued to suffer in their majority from conditions on the world market for their main export products and also from homemade problems. The global trend of a relapse in democracy was observable in Africa when looking into the different indices on offer. However, the spectacular re-moval of an age-old authoritarian regime like the one in Sudan worked against this trend.

The year began with an unpredictable future for Sudan, where large-scale pro-tests eventually led to the fall of the al-Bashir regime that had ruled the country for nearly three decades. Ethiopia continued to be in the limelight of global atten-tion, not least since its reformist prime minister, Abiy Ahmed, was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for his initiative to resolve the border conflict with neighbouring Eritrea. Expectations were high that his administration would succeed in its efforts to lead peace and cooperation initiatives in the region.

Hardly a day goes by without a panicky reminder of the so-called global refugee crisis. Whether it is the UNHCR statistics on the rising numbers of forcibly displaced people crossing borders or internally displaced people coupled with shrinking numbers of resettlement places, or the images of drowned, suffocated or dehydrated bodies in a desert, fears of losing control over mass people movements are everywhere, but particularly powerful in the Global North.

Kutupalong – which, located near Cox’s Bazar in Bangladesh, is the biggest refugee camp in the world with an estimated 700,000 inhabitants – has just witnessed its first coronavirus death. The 71-year-old victim was among at least 29 Rohingya refugees in the camp who had recently tested positive for the virus. The death of the refugee has increased concerns that the deadly virus could spread rapidly through refugee camps in Bangladesh, which are home to an estimated 1 million refugees.

This working paper addresses the interrelated notions of positionality, the (self-)perceptions by and about researchers, as well as global inequalities in knowledge production. It presents the experiences of four individual researchers who introspect on issues of insiderness, outsiderness and privilege in academia. The paper first introduces the questions and origins of this piece, then presents the experiences of each researcher in four separate sections. Each contribution uses the first-person narrative and presents the background and topic of study of each researcher.

The decline in the smuggling of people from Indonesia to Australia since late 2013 is primarily attributable to unilateral deterrence policies under Australia's Operation Sovereign Borders. When seeking to prevent asylum seekers from coming to Australia to enjoy the right to asylum there, the Australian government has tested a number of deterrent mechanisms that sometimes border on illegality and even state crime.
