Abstract: This paper address the issue of context in the research agenda of state building. In so doing, this paper argues for relating state building to dynamics that are specific to post Cold War international relations. I contend that contemporary discussion of state building is limited by its attempt to isolate the correct historical lessons from historical or on-going examples of contemporary state building. The problem with this policy-oriented, historical approach, I argue, is that it fails to relate contemporary state building to its proximate cause – namely, the suppression of sovereign state autonomy during the ‘new interventionism’ of the 1990s. I advance the argument that state building needs to be understood not as a reaction to conflict in ‘failed states’, but as flowing from the need to ameliorate the destructive consequences of humanitarian intervention. Rather than merely reviving the shattered institutions of particular states, I argue that state building is an attempt to revivify international relations itself, through re-constructing autonomous sovereign states as the constituent units of world politics. I conclude by suggesting that the category of state building should be understood not merely in terms of post-conflict reconstruction policy, but rather as a paradigm for the operation of North—South relations in the early twenty first century.

"What is Pizza?: Investigation of Diverse Mechanisms of Building Trust Among Korean Cleaning-Service Workers, Building Managers, and Clients" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the International Communication Association, Dresden International Congress Centre, Dresden, Germany, Jun 16, 2006 Online <PDF>. 2020-01-26 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p92824_index.html>

Abstract: During the last decades, there has been an increase of studies that investigated trust building processes in various organizational settings. However, there is still little research that considers contextuality, especially non-standard employment and cultural differences. Thus, through a case study of a cleaning service company mainly composed of Korean immigrants, this study investigated the diverse mechanisms of building trust among Korean cleaning service workers, building managers, and clients. This study shows the diversity of trust building processes based on the three factors of trustworthiness--ability, benevolence, integrity--presented by Mayer, Davis and Schoorman(1995) and one additional factor--cultural familiarity.

"Building Justice, Building Democracy: Reconceptualizing the Environmental Justice Framework" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the Rural Sociological Society, Marriott Santa Clara, Santa Clara, California, Aug 02, 2007 <Not Available>. 2020-01-26 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p208530_index.html>

Abstract: Environmental justice research occupies a prominent place in sociology. Yet, in spite of a substantive amount of scholarship, environmental justice framework still lacks a comprehensive theory. Part of the reason for this rests on inadequate conceptualization of what the “justice” of environmental justice refers to. This paper argues that an effective starting point for conceptualizing environmental justice lies in political philosophy. Drawing upon Amartya Sen I will argue that a more systematic conceptualization of justice needs to examine three concepts: fairness (a smarter equality), freedom (capacity building), and democracy (an effective social arrangement). I will argue that this new approach will help us avoid a simplistic analysis of equality (a political philosophical dilemma), while putting back institutions at the core of environmental justice (a social scientific concern). I call this new framework environmental democracy.
