“Η Ρουμανία Στους Εύρω-Ατλαντικούς Θεσμούς: Σε Αναζήτηση Νέου Ρόλου”, Efstathios Fakiolas, Nikolaos Tzifakis 2009 University of Peloponnese

“Η Ρουμανία Στους Εύρω-Ατλαντικούς Θεσμούς: Σε Αναζήτηση Νέου Ρόλου”, Efstathios Fakiolas, Nikolaos Tzifakis

Efstathios T. Fakiolas

Η ηγεσία της Ρουμανίας ωθήθηκε κατά τη διάρκεια της επιτυχούς πραγμάτωσης της ευρω-ατλαντικής προοπτικής και τη συνακόλουθη γεωπολιτική αναβάθμιση της χώρας Ρουμανίας να αναζητήσει ενεργό πρωταγωνιστικό ρόλο στην ανατολική Ευρώπη και τον Καύκασο. Η απόπειρα αυτή ήταν αναμφίβολα εξαιρετικά δυσχερής στο βαθμό που τις ρουμανικές φιλοδοξίες δεν συμμερίζονταν ούτε η ΕΕ και η Ρωσία ούτε σημαντικές περιφερειακές δυνάμεις όπως η Πολωνία, η Ουκρανία, η Τουρκία, το Ιράν, η Ελλάδα και η Βουλγαρία. Εντούτοις, η υλοποίηση του νέου αυτού στρατηγικού στόχου προσέκρουσε επιπρόσθετα στη δυσλειτουργία των θεσμών και των δομών της κεντρικής εξουσίας. Η διένεξη μεταξύ του προέδρου και του πρωθυπουργού ...


War In Pieces: Amia And The Triple Frontier In Argentine And American Discourse On Terrorism, Nathaniel Greenberg 2009 Selected Works

War In Pieces: Amia And The Triple Frontier In Argentine And American Discourse On Terrorism, Nathaniel Greenberg

Nathaniel Greenberg

July 18, 2010 marked yet another anniversary of the still unsolved terrorist attack that shook Argentina some sixteen years ago. Prior to September 11, Argentina in fact suffered two deadly terrorist attacks. The second of these, the bombing of La Asociación Mutual Israeli-Argentina (AMIA) on July 18, 1994, was the single largest attack targeting Jews since WWII and the largest terrorist attack in Latin American history. While the group “Islamic Jihad [Organization]” described by the FBI as “a covername” used by Hizbollah, claimed responsibility for the bombing of the Israeli Embassy in Buenos Aires in 1992, explanations for the AMIA ...

Growing Ethnopolitical Conflict And The Challenge Of "One" Nigeria: Politics Of State Building In A Multiethnic Society, 1960-2010, Ali Yusufu Bagaji 2009 Kogi State University, Anyigba, Kogi State, Nigeria

Growing Ethnopolitical Conflict And The Challenge Of "One" Nigeria: Politics Of State Building In A Multiethnic Society, 1960-2010, Ali Yusufu Bagaji

Ali Simon Yusufu Bagaji

Since October 1, 1960 when Nigeria attained political independence, it has being witnessing a steady growth of ethnopolitical and religious crises in its body politics. The central concern of this paper is that, ethnopolitical conflicts are posing great challenge to Nigeria’s unity, sovereignty and legitimacy that may lead to its consequential collapse. The worry of this paper is that, rather than diminishing after over five decades of political independence, ethnopolitical conflict has since the 1990s not only become more ferocious and alarming, but are also shifting from ethnic accommodation to ethnic self-determination. This paper is part of an ongoing ...

El Regimen De Stroessner (1954-1989), Robert Andrew Nickson 2009 University of Birmingham

El Regimen De Stroessner (1954-1989), Robert Andrew Nickson

Robert Andrew Nickson

Este capítulo describe las tres etapas principales del régimen de Stroessner: fase de consolidación (1954-1967); fase de expansión (1968-1981); y fase de descomposición (1982-1989), y las circunstancias de su caída. Posteriormente abarca los tres pilares del régimen: el Partido Colorado, las Fuerzas Armadas y el mismo Stroessner en su calidad de Jefe de Estado, Comandante en Jefe de las Fuerzas Armadas y Presidente Honorario del Partido Colorado. Se analiza cinco mecanismos cruciales que le permitieron mantenerse en el poder durante tanto tiempo: una fachada democrática, un sistema de represión eficaz, la corrupción institucionalizada, el uso de la ideología nacionalista, y ...


The Bureau Of Municipal Research And The Development Of A Professional Public Service, Bruce D. McDonald III 2009 North Carolina State University at Raleigh

The Bureau Of Municipal Research And The Development Of A Professional Public Service, Bruce D. Mcdonald Iii

Bruce D. McDonald, III

This paper explores the professionalization of public administration in terms of its relation to the New York Bureau of Municipal Research. The formation of the New York Bureau of Municipal Research in 1907 served as the catalyst for the creation and expansion of a professional public service. Though public administration has failed to transform into a profession, this paper shows that the Bureau contributed to professionalization by (1) developing a body of knowledge and theory for the field; (2) developing a school in which to train persons in that knowledge; and, (3) promoting a place that the training and knowledge ...


Revealing Iberian Woodcraft: Conserved Wooden Artefacts From South-East Spain, pablo rosser 2009 COLABORADOR HONORÍFICO UNIVERSIDAD ALICANTE

Revealing Iberian Woodcraft: Conserved Wooden Artefacts From South-East Spain, Pablo Rosser

pablo rosser

Yolanda Carrion & Pablo Rosser Six wells at Tossal de les Basses in Spain captured a large assemblage of Iberian woodworking debris. The authors’ analysis distinguishes a wide variety of boxes, handles, staves, pegs and joinery made in different and appropriate types of wood, some – like cypress – imported from some distance away. We have here a glimpse of a sophisticated and little known industry of the fourth century BC.
