2018/03 – Institute for Development and Peace (INEF); Working Papers on Development and Global Governance No.16; Author(s): Christian Tischmeyer - Details

This ascription is based on existence of five sets of institutions, or dimensions of state activity. A state is considered strong when perceived to perform effectively in the dimensions of monopolising the military draft, direct taxation, bureaucratic organisation, promotion of formal economy, and keeping internal order. As meeting these conditions depends on direct rule, strong modern states are necessarily nations. Using an actor-centred concept of violence, I assess the violence necessary in creating and maintaining such orders. I conclude that nation-states have an institutional disposition towards massviolence. Thus one has to think beyond this political order when seeking less violence.

EADI offers a range of activities to raise the profile of female researchers:

EADI (Wo)Mentoring

Pursuing a career in academia can be challenging. Young scholars have to deal with a number of questions: uncertainties concerning research work and juggling career, family commitments and personal life at the same time. The EADI Mentoring Programme “Develop Your Talent” provides young and aspiring scholars with the chance to exchange with someone further advanced in their career. The mentoring does not offer professional coaching to the mentees, but accompaniment on a younger sister/elder sister level. As some of our mentors are also active in the Working Groups opportunities for further collaboration often arise. This is especially important since women in particular are often struggling to find entry points for building own networks

2018/01 – Institute of Development Studies (IDS), Brighton; research paper; Author(s): Sohela Nazneen - Details

This paper is an evidence review of how intersecting forms of inequalities influence women’s political participation and representation at the local level in Bangladesh, India and Pakistan. The review shows that while the quota system has increased women’s presence in local government, intersections of gender and caste or gender and class affect minority women’s ability to contest elections, participate in local government meetings, contest opinions, and represent the interests of their community and that of gender equality in different ways. These intersections also make women vulnerable to discriminatory practices within the government and also to violence.
