ABOUT ME

I am a Professor in International Relations at the Department of Politics, University of Amsterdam. My main research interests are in global civil society, international criminal justice, human security and authoritarian rule. My main current research project is Authoritarianism in a Global Age, funded by the European Research Council.

I studied English literature and international law at the University of Amsterdam , and I hold a PhD (distinction) from the University of Utrecht in association with the Netherlands School of Human Rights Research.

I worked at the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE) as a managing editor of the Global Civil Society Yearbook (2001-2003), coordinator of the Study Group on European Security (2003-2004), lecturer in management of non-governmental organisations (2004-2006), and lecturer in global politics (2006-2008).

I returned to the Netherlands in 2008, taking up a post as assistant professor, later associate professor, in international relations. In 2011-2012 I was a Visiting Professor at the Chaire Leclercq, Universite Catholique de Louvain, Belgium and in Spring 2012 I was a Fellow at the Netherlands Institute for Advanced Studies (NIAS) in Wassenaar, The Netherlands.

RESEARCH INTERESTS AND PROJECTS

I have four interrelated research interests, in authoritarianism, international criminal justice, global civil society, and human security:

Authoritarianism in a global age

Openness to global ICT and media, international NGOs, and inflow and outflow of people have thrown up new challenges for authoritarian rulers in terms of how to control citizens. In a five-year ERC-funded project titled 'Authoritarianism in a Global Age', I will be investigating the nature and sustainability of authoritarianism in relation to globalisation of ICTs, associationalism, and people movement.

See separate tab for more information or the website: www.authoritarianism-global.uva.nl 

International criminal justice

My particular interest lies in the relation between international criminal courts and their socio-political environment. I have written a book detailing how actors in global civil society were in large part responsible for the establishment and particular shape of the International Criminal Court. Subsequent work looks at the aspirations of international criminal justice to 'mend' war-torn societies, at the ways in which people in these societies interact with international criminal courts, and at the ways in which understandings of justice and legitimacy are dynamic, and constructed in part in the course of trial proceedings.

See separate tab for more information. 

Global civil society

I have a longstanding interest in theories and practices of global civil society. My theoretical work has focused on the 'globality' of civil society, its relation to the market, to 'incivility', to democracy and authoritarianism. While eschewing a precise definition, my theoretical conception of global civil society is of a dialectical sphere where ideational struggles are fought. Empirically, this sphere is populated with social movements, NGOs, transnational networks, religious actors, foundations and individuals. Investigation of their thoughts and actions is crucial to understanding contemporary politics. Recent work looks at what we term the 'square movements of 2011', considering differences and commonalities between the square occupations by the Occupy movement, the anti-austerity protests in Southern Europe, and the Arab Spring.

See separate tab for more information.

Human security

Human security has functioned as both a paradigm-shifting and a bridging concept, with its most significant implications being, first, the shift from a focus on state security to one on human rights, and, second, the indivisibility of physical and material security. Despite attempts at narrowing and appropriation, human security has lost neither its radical edge nor its holistic character. However, the bulk of the literature on the subject is theoretical. I have attempted to operationalize the term so as to help enable a real shift in policymaking.

TEACHING

At the University of Amsterdam, I currently teach international relations core courses at bachelor and master's level. 

I have previously taught courses on the theory and practice of global civil society; humanitarian intervention and human security; empire, global politics, management of non-governmental organisations, human rights, foreign policy, the United Nations, political theory and qualitative methodology at the Free University Amsterdam, London School of Economics, University of Amsterdam, Universite Catholique de Louvain, University of Sarajevo and University of Utrecht.

INTERNATIONAL CRIMINAL JUSTICE

Current project: Constructions of Justice: International Criminal Trials as Messages to Society

With:               Tim Meijers, Université Catholique de Louvain

Funded by:    Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO); Netherlands Institute of Advanced Studies (NIAS)

We draw on the legal doctrine of "expressivism", which treats trials as theatrical, message-sending spectacles, to theorise the connection between normative legitimacy, actual support and utility of international criminal justice as dynamic, and partly determined in court. We conducted a detailed examination of the discourses employed by defence and prosecution in the cases of Charles Taylor before the Special Court of Sierra Leone, and the case of Radovan Karadzic before the Yugoslavia Tribunal. A further theoretical article will reflect on the generalizability of our findings by considering the elements of the actors,   audiences, and the stage in the posited "courtroom drama".

I subsequently conducted fieldwork in Liberia on the perceptions of local opinion-makers of the Charles Taylor trial. Other collaborative work with Balkans scholars situates the Yugoslavia Tribunal (ICTY) within its wider socio-political contexts.

Past project: International Criminal Justice and Affected Societies

Based on fieldwork conduct in the Central African Republic, I took issue with the notion that international criminal investigations are necessarily to be seen as external interventions. An article for the Human Rights Quarterly more broadly surveyed civil society and victims responses to the ICC's first investigations. In a normative-theoretical article, I took inspiration from classical and recent theories in legal sociology and legal anthropology to assess whether there is a theoretical basis for the recent claim that international criminal justice should be 'more democratic'. It concluded that there is no argument for requiring a direct democratic basis that they should pursue wider social aims, and their relationship with war-affected societies should be communicative and cognitive.

Past project: The International Criminal Court: A Global Civil Society Achievement

In a monograph on the establishment of the International Criminal Court, I found that global civil society actors had had a significant influence on this international law-making process, and discussed theoretical and normative implications of this finding. It assessed to what extent global civil society can be considered as democratising international decision-making processes. While concluding that this was only very partially the case, I drew attention to the much overlooked and by no means unproblematic 'ethical contribution' of global civil society and offered a qualified defence for more international law, with more global civil society participation, on this basis.

GLOBAL CIVIL SOCIETY

Past project: Movements of 2011

With: Armine Ishkanian, London School of Economics and Geoffrey Pleyers, Université Catholique de Louvain.

Funded by: Robert Bosch Foundation

In this project, we investigate differences and similarities between the anti-austerity movements of the west and the democratization movements of the Arab and post-Soviet regions. We conducted fieldwork in Athens, Cairo, London, Moscow and Yerevan in the Spring of 2013. In each setting undertaking ca. 20 in-depth interviews with activists who had been deeply involved in street protests and/or direct action in the past two years, asking among other things about the values and motivations underlying collective action; the relation between activists and traditional civil society actors such as NGOs, trade unions and political parties; about transnational links; about what happened to activism after the square occupations; and about the role of violence.

Past projects: Civil Society Theory

In various contributions, I have argued my views on the nature of civil society, and its relation to the market, to 'incivility', to democracy and authoritarianism (but not to the 'state' as such). In a recently submitted contribution to a discussion forum, I have more explicitly identified my vision with a particular interpretation of Gramsci's use of civil society.

Past projects: Social Forums as a New Political Arena

With: Jill Timms, London School of Economics

This research monitored the emergence of hundreds of local social forums inspired by the World Social Forum in Porto Alegre. Based on web-research and participatory observation, it explored the attempts of local, national and world social forums to develop new forms of   democratic decision-making, the political positions they project, and the way in which they have become a new 'site', a form of strategic infrastructure, for global civil society. A second, more theoretical article explored the tension between Gramscian and Habermasian ideals in the World Social Forum Charter and in the wider movement.

Past projects: Economic and Social Rights

There is a literature on economic and social rights in political philosophy, but as the sub-discipline would suggest, it is a very theoretical, normatively oriented literature. My research asks similar questions to those addressed by the theorists, but they are answered through an examination of actual present-day activities of global civil society actors, describing new synergies and new methodologies in their work as well as remaining controversies, blind spots and limitations. It examines three tensions embedded in the concept of economic and social rights: between individualist and collectivist solutions to social justice problems; between economic and social rights as legal and as moral norms; and between state-focused and globally oriented ways of thinking about obligations.

AUTHORITARIAN RULE

Current project: Authoritarianism in a Global Age

with: Imke Harbers, Jos Bartman, Kris Ruygrok, Adele Del Sordi, Emanuela Dalmasso and Marcus Michaelsen

Funded by: European Research Council Advanced Grant

website: www.authoritarianism-global.uva.nl 

The overarching research question of this project is: how is authoritarian rule affected by and responding to globalisation of (a) information and communication, (b) association, and (c) people movement?

In four sub-projects, the project investigates:

1. Whether, how and to what extent globalisation of information and communication, association, and people movement affect authoritarian persistence (longitudinal quantitative study, 1970-2011)

2. How, i.e. with what mechanisms, authoritarian states respond to globalisation of information and communication, association, and people movement (multi-sited qualitative studies)

3. Whether, how and to what extent the three forms of globalisation under investigation affect subnational authoritarianism in formally democratic federal states; and how subnational authoritarian entities interact both with national democratic actors and with global actors with respect to these forms of globalisation (mixed methods sub-federal state level studies)

4. What authoritarianism is in a global age: reconsidering authoritarianism's defining characteristics of low accountability and high coercion, and whether these still relate exclusively to statehood (theory study)

Past projects: Knowledge Project on Civil Society in West Asia

With: Paul Aarts, Francesco Cavatorta, Kawa Hassan, Steven Heydemann, Gerd Junne, Reynoud Leenders, Juliette Verhoeven

Funded by: HIVOS

The Knowledge Programme on Civil Society in West Asia was a joint initiative by Hivos and the University of Amsterdam with the purpose of generating and integrating knowledge on the roles and opportunities for civil society actors in democratization processes in politically challenging environments. The programme integrated academic knowledge and practitioner's knowledge from around the world to develop new insights and strategies on how civil society actors in Syria and Iran can contribute to various processes of democratization and how international actors can support this. I contributed various publications relating to the conceptualization of state-society relations by dissidents during communist rule in Eastern Europe and military rule in South America, and how these related to their subsequent democratization.

Past projects: Foreign Policy on Human Rights: Its Influence on Indonesia under Soeharto

My doctoral dissertation investigated what factors determined the susceptibility of an authoritarian state, Indonesia under Soeharto, to outside pressure in relation to human rights violations. It found that this susceptibility depended crucially on two factors: the need, or at least desirability, of continued violations for the survival of the regime itself on the one hand, and the severity and credibility of western threats on the other hand.

An un-looked for finding that was to determine much of my future research trajectory was that all significant efforts by western states to pursue human rights goals were rooted in and driven by civil society activism.
