Abstract: Recent critical and constructivist scholarship concerning the study of multilateralism, international organizations, and global governance has, in general, been relatively slow to take account of the relevant insights and concepts from the study of public policy more broadly defined. Yet all scholars are in agreement that multilateralism and global governance, in its substantive development, implementation and diffusion, resembles the challenges of multi-level or multi-layered 'global public policy'. The reason for this collective failure stems from the continuing tendency of critical international relations scholarship to characterise public policy analysis as a form of 'problem-solving' theory, and hence as antithetical to a genuinely critical agenda. This paper challenges this implicit or explicit distinction between critical and problem-solving approaches, through a focused and detailed case study of one policy domain: the expanding global and regional efforts (since 2001) to combat armed violence and the proliferation and misuse of small arms. It examiens the nature of policy entrepreneurship in states, international organizations and non-governmental organizations; the significance of the engagement of stakeholders from the development and public health community and the way in which a 'critical' political praxis has pragmatically pursued agenda-setting, framing and 'expert knowledge' strategies to forward concrete goals. It concludes with tentative comparisons with parallel policy domains (environment, human rights, post-conflict reconstruction, etc.) and outlines a research agenda on critical public policy for world politics.

Abstract: Affirmative action was designed to redress institutional racism that created barriers for people of color in education and job opportunities. Almost since its inception, affirmative action has been met with resistance. In the most recent cases, the Michigan cases, the affirmative action camp found success in relying on a concept called “Critical mass.” The idea is that affirmative action is worthwhile if it is used to create diversity. Indeed, the majority in Grutter embraced critical mass as an analogy for some meaningful number of students in the classroom, without specifically defining it. However, because there is so much resistance to giving critical mass a specific definition within the legal context for fear of the concept being unmasked as just another way of saying “quota”, there is little research on how exactly students of color, the very students who should benefit from it, define it and view it. My study seeks to answer these questions. Are students of color able to give a concrete definition to critical mass? If so, what are the perceived benefits or disadvantages of relying on this concept? Finally, have students of color ever been in a situation in which critical mass was achieved? If so, did it transform the students educational experience. If so, how?

Abstract: The aim of this essay is to suggest pathways to promote a dialogue between the intra-european and colonial critiques of modernity. The essay focuses on the questions of history and time, of classification and representation and on the question of subjectivity. These questions are elaborated in dialogical way across geo-historical divides, thus promoting a South-North dialogue of critical knowledges. In this way the essay aims to extend the critique of modernity while contributing towards global epistemic justice.

Abstract: The claim that collegiate forensics successfully challenges students to become social advocates and engaged citizens is frequently asserted by forensic educators. Yet, providing support and/or proof for this claim is a challenging endeavor. We argue that the nurturing of students' minds and mentalities in this area is inherent in the structure of the activity and corresponding events. In this paper, we isolate key aspects of collegiate forensics that facilitate the transformation of students into social advocates and critics.
