      These different explorations of 'identity' demonstrate how difficult a concept it is to pin down. It concerns the protection of hardware, software, data, people, and also the procedures by which systems are accessed, and the field has growing importance due to the increasing reliance on computer systems in most societies. Comparing seven historical cases: Germany, Japan, Somalia, Haiti, Bosnia, Kosovo, and Afghanistan, "in which American military power has been used in the aftermath of a conflict to underpin democratization elsewhere around the world since World War II,"[23] Dobbins and colleagues come to the following conclusions: Lessons Learned in U. While some are satisfied with the current 36 states, others are calling for more states for their own groups. Leadership is not everything, but it is an extremely important factor.

      Ilchman eds. Along the way a number of other people also tried to sharpen my focus, clarify some of my misunderstandings, and steer me in more fruitful directions — hopefully with at least some success. The constitution bequeathed by the military is defective in many important respects. But the multilateral approach is considerably less expensive for individual participants. I shall return to the imperatives of institution-building later in this presentation. Should state governments continue to control local government allocations?

      People in these types of jobs are forced to find ways in order to create an identity they can live with. Do we have an elite that is collectively committed to nation-building? The Rwandan genocide as well as the recurrent problems experienced by the Sudan can also be related to a lack of ethnic, religious, or racial cohesion within the nation. To their credit, however, the founding fathers of our nation tried to deal with this challenge by adopting federalism and advocating a policy of unity-in-diversity. Suggesting a "post-material approach to security" p. Discussions of identity use the term with different meanings, from fundamental and abiding sameness, to fluidity, contingency, negotiated and so on.

Security, identity, and nation building book

It's death that allows people to choose from the social constructed meanings in their world, and assemble a finite identity out of seemingly infinite meanings. Nigeria needs a constitutional settlement that commands the acceptance, if not the respect, of a majority of its million citizens.

Building consensus around these three key values remains a constitutional challenge for nation-building. We who live and work in the center of the storm can only hope that her book gets studied carefully by the next generation of policy makers. He also ignores the evidence among Greek Cypriots, some of whom advocate an integration of the two communities—witness the New Cyprus Association and even some individuals within the established Greek Cypriot political parties.

Last, then, I want to thank my pixyish wife Jessie, who magically held everything together during my absences, and my sweet children Joey and Sophie, who always forgave me for missing their birthdays — even when they were young and birthdays still mattered.

Most states, such as South Africa and Sweden, [14] [10] configure their military forces mainly for territorial defence; others, such as France, Russia, the UK and the US, [15] [16] [11] [12] invest in higher-cost expeditionary capabilitieswhich allow their armed forces to project power and sustain military operations abroad.

When I talk about collective elite leadership, I am drawing attention to the collective vision, focus, and discipline of the elites as a whole. Here again, there is little by way of consensus. While they have been criticized, they continue to exert an influence on approaches to the conceptualisation of identity today.

Perhaps reflecting his own elitist proclivities, Theophylactou does not delve into the issue of identity beyond the conventional wisdom of political leaders. Cyberattacks on Estonia and cyberattacks during the South Ossetia war are examples.

National security

We do not need leaders who place themselves above the constitution and the laws of the country, but leaders who lead by upholding and respecting the law. It may be necessary to go back to the debates over the definition and purposes of nation-building to answer that question. Do we have an elite that is collectively committed to nation-building?

The first prevalent in the media portrays state-building as an interventionist action by foreign countries. This division has been a source of domestic tension and undermined our efforts at creating a common nationhood.

Incidental or deliberate damage can have a serious impact on the economy and essential services. To my mind, the worst enemies of Nigerian federalism are those who speak of federalism, but act in a unitary fashion by brushing aside all the divisions of powers between different levels of our federation.

In reading this and subsequent sections, one gets the feeling that he is trying to prove how well he knows the prevailing literature. Anderson is associate professor of political science at the University of Wyoming. Different theories of nation-building emphasize different parts of the arguments.

Whether nations are able to manage their political and social disputes peacefully, without lapsing into conflict, or sustain economic growth without creating huge inequalities, critically depend on the quality of the relevant national institutions.

After all, a tree cannot make a forest, and an individual leader cannot do everything alone. I suggest that we should look for the answer in three critical areas: 1 threats and Security posed by the environment for nation-building; 2 the quality of leadership that has confronted these challenges; and 3 the fragility of political and development institutions.

For example, through the work of the Federal Character Commission, we know that a local government in Warri once had staff from only one ethnic group, even though three ethnic groups lived in the local government area. The first favours a primordialist approach which takes the sense of self and belonging to a collective group as a fixed thing, defined by objective criteria such as common ancestry and common biological characteristics.

While the Botswana leadership was collectively focused and had a vision of what it wanted to do with the country, the leadership in Somalia was divided against itself.

But a state is more properly the governmental apparatus by which a nation rules itself. The domestic context, in particular overt racism and economic anxieties, is interpreted as providing a ground for specific forms of identity and security building.

Nietzschewho was influenced by Hegel in some ways but rejected him in others, called for a rejection of "Soul Atomism" in The Gay Science. Nation-building is more than just state-building.

I myself have had the privilege of close association with the United Nations, an organization set up to ensure the peaceful coexistence and the social economic development of the worlds numerous nations.

China and India have the largest populations in the world, but they are only now rising as important global players.role that armies often have played in successful instances of nation-building. We argue for the critical importance of national identity and ideology for nation-building and legitimacy formation, the role militaries can play by embodying and promoting a national idea, and the importance of ideology for military cohesion and, ultimately, its.

National security or national defense is the security and defense of a nation state, including its citizens, economy, and institutions, which is regarded as a duty of government.

Originally conceived as protection against military attack, national security is now widely understood to include also non-military dimensions, including the security from terrorism, minimization of crime, economic. Intersectionality is an analytic sensibility, a way of thinking about identity and its relationship to power.

Originally articulated on behalf of black women, the term brought to light the invisibility of many constituents within groups that claim them as members but often fail to represent them.

In this innovative work on the international politics of nation-building, Harris Mylonas argues that a state's nation-building policies toward non-core groups - individuals perceived as an ethnic group by the ruling elite of a state - are influenced by both its foreign policy goals and its Cited by:
