Publication Type: Abstract
Abstract: Metropolis: any large city or the chief; and sometimes capital city of a country, state, or region; or the mother city or parent state of a colony.

Gotham: journalistic shorthand for New York City or an English village, proverbial for the foolishness of its inhabitants.


While the definitions indicate broad urban experience, the comic book discourse linked to Metropolis and Gotham are informed and transformed by historic aspirations and apprehensions associated with city life in the United States. This paper explores the binary between triumph and failure associated with urbanism in superhero comic book narratives. More than the backdrop for fantastic adventures, Metropolis and Gotham are amalgamating fictive landscapes that act as spaces of emergent ideology continually reflecting splintered communal realities linked to conflicts linked to race, class, and gender in the city.

Abstract: The 1993 Russian constitution created a hybrid presidential-parliamentary system in which the president has the power to initiate and veto legislation and to issue normative decrees. We identify three sets of influences on the use of these law-making and decree-making powers by the president and parliament: those stemming from basic constitutional constraints on the use of decree-making power; those associated with long-term and short-term temporal considerations; and the effect of change in the policy distance between the president and the Duma. These factors shape the strategic context in which the two presidents and four Dumas since 1993 have operated. On the basis of a comprehensive examination of the record of laws and decrees promulgated from 1994 through 2004, we evaluate and largely confirm these propositions. A case study of the use of law and decree in setting policy in the area of land ownership illustrates the interplay of these forces.

Abstract: Mohammad Ayoob (1991, 1994) argued that the security concerns of less developed countries would be more profitably examined from outside the traditional paradigms of security in the literature. In his significant contribution, he pointed out that the mostly internal security concerns of less developed countries emerged from issues of legitimacy and challenges to the nation, state and the regime, matters closely related to the processes of state- and nation-making. This paper examines this relationship between security and state- and nation-making in greater depth by asking the broad question: how and when do issues of legitimacy and other such challenges become closely connected to security? What are the processes that may be involved? Through analyzing national security concerns, doctrines, and discourses of three multi-ethnic states in Southeast Asia – Indonesia, Malaysia and Singapore – this paper proposes that identity narratives regarding how each state came into being may not only be one of the processes involved but were important to the on-going construction and maintenance of particular internal enemies or threats.

Abstract: Since the end of the Cold War, there has been a remarkable decrease in the amount of and the severity of armed conflicts. Several factors are likely to have contributed to this development, such as for example global economic development and the end of superpower rivalry. In addition, many analysts have singled out increased activity of the international community as a key factor. Anecdotic evidence has sometimes supported the causal link between third party action and a reduction of violence. When the UN Humanitarian coordinator for Sudan compared the attacks on civilians in Darfur with the Rwandan genocide, this led to a sudden stop of the attacks. However, when the statement was not followed up by any further outside pressures the violence resumed. It could be argued that the effect of third party attempts to influence a conflict situation is dependent on the extent the third party is willing to commit to its measures.This paper will utilize a unique dataset comprising both costly and less costly third party actions with the UCDP dataset MILC (Managing Intrastate Low-level armed Conflicts) as its base. The effect will be measured with regards to several dependent variables, including short-term reductions of fighting and attacks on civilians, but also long-term effects on the conflict development such as the settlement of the dispute. Previous research lack in comparing the effect of costly and less costly third party actions and this paper will hopefully render more focus on this issue that have high importance both for the research and the policy community.
