Abstract: Once considered a “hot topic” among scholars, research on coups d’état has waned in recent years. This decline is surprising given that 3 coups were attempted in 2008 alone, not to mention almost three dozen coups in the past decade. One explanation for the lack of coup research is the absence of a comprehensive dataset to test theories across time and space. Also absent is a discussion of what makes coups distinct from other forms of anti-regime activity, and evidence that these differences matter for scholars studying a wide variety of topics. This article seeks to remedy these problems. We begin by previewing a new dataset on coups from 1950 to 2008, describing our theoretical definition and coding procedures. Second, we examine general trends in the data compared to other forms of anti-regime activity (e.g., civil wars, riots and protests). Third, we demonstrate the relevance of coups by examining how studies of civil war duration are altered by more closely considering coups. Overall, we find strong evidence that (1) coups are distinct forms of anti-regime activity that are not subsumed into other measures and (2) coups have the potential to significantly alter empirical studies on civil conflicts. We conclude by urging scholars studying a variety of topics, including regime stability, democratization, and regime imposition, to pay closer attention to coups.

Abstract: This paper reflects on the issues which arise in the never-complete trajectory of seeking relevance and impact in education, industry and policy while not sacrificing excellence and international standing in research and scholarship in the communication, culture and media fields. These tensions are played out at the core of academic life but have particular characteristics in the humanities and social sciences, as work of the highest quality often is based on particularity, not generalisability. The paper analyses the scholarship, strategies and impact of two international debates which have had a distinctive Australian contribution or origination – the cultural policy debate in the 1990s, and the concept of creative industries in the 2000s – in which the author has been involved.

Abstract: Debates over religious accommodation in liberal-democratic states are increasingly common. How ought we to make sense of their often-abrupt eruption, unpredictable dynamics, and variation across jurisdictions? I argue that such debates are best understood as instances of competitive group boundary construction and maintenance. Religious groups’ insistence that their members be able to engage in religious rites and practices is not only based on a commitment to religious devotion but also reflects their interest in maintaining a sense of coherent group identity – religious groups exist and persist insofar as their members engage in practices that together constitute a sense of group-ness. Liberal-democratic states are also in the business of group identity formation through boundary activation; religious rites deemed to contradict the core values constituting a civic national identity are therefore subject to challenge, oftentimes by political actors whose putative commitment to such values is premised on a combination of principled and self-interested motives. The success of such actors depends on their ability to advance their case regarding the incompatibility of civic and religious commitments and broker support among otherwise disinterested members of the public. This endeavour is, in turn, structured by prevailing political opportunity structures. I illustrate my argument through reference to debates over religious accommodation in Germany and Canada.

Abstract: FIFA, the governing body of world football, is one of the best established and strongest transnational legal regimes. It has — though organized merely as a private association under Swiss law — great influence on important matters such as the job market for foreign football players, its authority is accepted by virtually every country of the world, and it has by threatening to ban national federations from international games an effective mechanism of sanctions. Therefore it might serve as a paradigmatic case to study the prospects of transnational legal regimes. In the first part I will sketch the workings of the FIFA and analyze how its relations to national or regional legal systems are perceived by different actors by drawing in particular on decisions of the European Court of Justice. In the second part I will discuss three possible scenarios how FIFA could further develop; through commercialization, balkanization, or democratization. The key thesis will be that a full democratization is neither a feasible nor a desirable aim for a legal regime such as the FIFA.
