Abstract: As non-sovereign bodies, international organizations like the United Nations lack the power to coerce, bribe or buy compliance with international norms. Their only source of power is their capacity to mobilize support on the basis of legitimacy. The paper examines theories of power to set out the role of legitimate power in governance and looks at how it has been and could be used by international organizations and civil society to constrain the actions of hegemons. By examining the role of legitimation as part of the creation and maintenance of international regimes, the paper will argue that evidence will show that hegemons have needed international legitimacy in order to maintain their own power and that, as a result, organizations that can convey it will have their own kind of power.

2. Little, Richard. "Hans J. Morgenthau?s Conception of the Balance of Power" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the International Studies Association, Town & Country Resort and Convention Center, San Diego, California, USA, Mar 22, 2006 <Not Available>. 2020-01-24 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p100822_index.html>

Abstract: Although Morgenthau is regularly identified as the father of modern realism, and the precusor of neoclassical realism, there have been few systematic attempts to unpack the theory of international politics that is embedded in his central text - Politics Among Nations. The more prevalent tendency has been for analysts to ransack his writings looking for quotations that confirm their particular take on his approach to international politics. Such a strategy never proves to be convincing, however, because Morgenthau?s assessment of international politics is both complex and ambiguous. As a consequence, it is very difficult to pigeon hole him. The aim of this paper is to provide a sympathetic reading of Politics Among Nations that attempts to overcome the confusion and inconsistency that is frequently associated with Morgenthau's approach. To this end, two main moves are made. First, I approach the text from the perspective of the balance of power ? identified as the central concept in his theory. Second, I try to demonstrate that Morgenthau?s approach to the balance of power is more pluralistic than is generally recognised - conflating two distinctively different dynamic processes. One associates the balance of power with the unintended outcome of Great Powers engaged in a drive for hegemony. The other dynamic is associated with a complex set of social, ideational and material factors that ameliorate the effects of the first dynamic and assist the Great Powers in maintaining an equilibrium that promotes their collective security and common interests. In practice, Morgenthau makes no explicit attempt to distinguish these two dynamics, and so it needs to be acknowledged that this is a reading that is being imposed on his text. It is argued, however, that some of the incoherence and confusion that has been associated with Morgenthau?s approach to international politics can be reduced by making the two dynamics explicit. Moreover, it also becomes easier to see why Morgenthau argues that there have been two fundamental transformation points in the development of international politics over the past five hundred years ? an assessment that shares some common ground with contemporary constructivist theorists.

Abstract: International Relations (IR) has seen renewed interest in the insights of Hans Morgenthau which had long been obscured by neorealism. This new "reflexive realism," however, far from exhausts the range of Morgenthau's thinking about politics. In the 1960s Morgenthau lamented the inability of modern thinking to recognize the connections between power and love, which he argued was symptomatic of the inability to fully understand either one. For Morgenthau, both power and love were rooted in the need to overcome the loneliness of the human condition. Through pursuits of both power and love people seek, through others, to avoid the self's insufficiency. Yet, these pursuits are mutually subversive. The frustration of love blends into the imposition of power, and the pursuit of power is ultimately an extension of the search for love. In exploring these issues this paper substantially contributes to three major literatures in IR. First, Morgenthau's theories offer perhaps an unlikely, but no less profound, contribution to the burgeoning emotions literature in IR. Second, it offers new perspectives on the resurgence of historical interest in Morgenthau and classical realism. Finally, it builds upon recent discussions of power to suggest new perspectives on its emotional dimensions.

Abstract: The present work aims to address the contributions of Hans-Joachim Koellreutter (1915-2005), german composer and educator naturalized brazilian, to the Music Education area. After arriving in Brazil, in 1937, he realized the lack of systematic actions in the teaching and learning of music in the country, starting to research and corroborate to the growth and diffusion of new ideas. The proposals presented by Koellreutter are based on a music teaching by the bias of creation and thought, always pointing to the development of the human as the main purpose of music education. He starts to discuss, therefore, about a pedagogical process in music embracing improvisation, group creation, inter-human contact, the overcoming of the competitive spirit, targeting an art teaching that does not stimulate egocentric and individualistic tendencies, highlighting the socializing function of music. The improvisation models and communication exercises created by Koellreutter reflect these ideals, and are also games very useful in the process of thinking about our current researches, that focus on the playful and interdisciplinarity in music classes with children. Musical and theatrical elements are perceived in several of his games, whose exploration of sound and improvisation arise after the previous presentation of scenery and characters, apart from the split of the class in a group of players and another of observers/audience. Thus, with the aim of presenting the theoretical conceptions and practices of the educator, we will rase data and pedagogical propositions obtained through documentary research, analyzing the interviews he gave, his published essays, as well as academic papers and books that discourse about him and his legacy. The documentary research, in turn, is part of the Master’s Project in progress that seeks to understand which are the contributions of musical improvisation experiences in scenic-musical games to the development of children. We believe that the considerations produced by the investigated materials can collaborate to the research and practice of many education professionals and, more specifically, to music educators. In Brazil, the ideas of Koellreutter has increasingly influenced researches and directed many teachers’ proposals that aim pedagogical spaces propitious to musical and human development. Therefore, we believe that this work will enable a better understanding about this educator, spreading his ideas of music and education to professionals from different countries.

Publication Type: Panel Paper
Abstract: Between 1588 and 1607, the residents of Augsburg commissioned a series of impressive large bronze sculptures to decorate prominent fountains, public buildings, and an ancient monastery. The fame of Hubert Gerhard’s Augustus Fountain (1588-94) and Adriaen de Vries’ Mercury Fountain (1596-99) and Hercules Fountain (1597-1600) has largely overshadowed the monumental St. Michael Vanquishing Lucifer (1603-07) for the façade of the Arsenal and the Crucifixion group (c. 1605) for the St. Ulrich and Afra Church by the younger Hans Reichle. Each of these Northern European sculptors worked in Florence where they were strongly influenced by Giambologna. Yet only Reichle is documented as an assistant in Giambologna studio. This paper will address Reichle’s Augsburg bronzes and their diverse artistic sources.
