International Intervention and Local Politics: Insights from Aceh
Please note new time and date
International peace and statebuilding interventions have become ubiquitous since the 1990s. Their frequent failures, however, have prompted some researchers and practitioners to move beyond focusing on interveners’ ideas and approaches to analysing how their interactions with recipients shape outcomes. The recently published book by Shahar Hameiri, Caroline Hughes and Fabio Scarpello, International Interventions and Local Politics: Fragmented States and the Politics of Scale (Cambridge University Press, 2017) critically evaluates these analyses. In this seminar, two of the book’s authors will discuss their approaches using the Aceh Government Transformation Program a case study.
