- ItemOpen AccessA Theory of world politics: an alternative approach to understanding the NIEO(1989) Kunetzki, Alicia K.; Keeley, James F.This thesis takes an alternative approach to understanding the South's proposal for a new international economic order (NIEO). Throughout the history of the development of the new order ideal (1955-19 8 0) , many s cho la rs and statesmen took a narrow approach to understanding the NIEO, concentrating mainly on an economic analysis of Southern proposals for changes in the international economic arena. This thesis questions such a narrow focus on the NIEO and suggests that a multi-dimensional approach is required, one that understands the NIEO as a Southern effort to replace the structure and functioning of the old order with a new one based on the political, institutional, and legal re-ordering of international relations. The evidence demonstrates that while the development of the NIEO concept as a plan for the future of world politics was unsystematic, the elements of what constitutes an order are present within the NIEO. Drawing on the declarations, resolutions, and statements and speeches of Third World leaders and representatives, this thesis arranges the variety of Southern concepts, ideals, and assumptions into a potentially coherent political construct, and outlines a theory of world politics for the NIEO. Having completed this exercise, the thesis critically assesses the viability of the new order ideal and examines some sig:nificant internal tensions in the theory. Upon analysis, the viability of the NIEO as a plan for the future of international relations, is questionable.

- ItemOpen AccessGrassroots NGOs, civil society and environmental politics in China(2008) Xu, Kai; Keeley, James F.; Zhu, YuchaoThe research highlights the new phenomenon of the proliferation of non-governmental organizations in China's environmental sector over the last decade (1994-2006), comparing the interactions of NGOs and governmental authorities in the three areas of environmental education, green community construction, and anti-dam campaigns in China. The study argues that the political nature of NGO activities is a major variable that determines the overall NGO-governmental interactions in China's environmental politics, even though other socio-economic variables, including central-local distinction, horizontal agency difference and NGO resources, still matter in some cases. The study further suggests that, in order to accurately capture the new dynamics in changing state society relations in China, it is necessary to differentiate between the related non-governmental activities on the basis of their different political nature rather than to simply treat the non-governmental sector as a whole. In environmental education, NGOs have largely maintained a "harmonious" relationship with relevant governmental agencies since their educational projects are considered largely apolitical. In green community construction, NGOs have developed a somewhat cooperative but potentially challenging relationship with the state due to their mixed roles as both environmental educators and democracy advocates. In dam construction, NGOs have had a contentious relationship with the Chinese state as their anti-dam campaigns are highly sensitive in nature. The study concludes that an NGO-led environmental civil society has been able to survive and develop within a somewhat compromised authoritarian state. While this civil society is relatively independent, it has maintained a largely "harmonious" or cooperative relationship with the Chinese state. Only in limited aspects, has this civil society developed a competitive and even contentious relationship with the Chinese state, even though it has not been able to directly confront the state. However, while it is still fairly weak at this stage, the increasing politicization of NGO activities means that this civil society could have strong implications for environmental governance and future democratization of China.
- ItemOpen AccessIAEA safeguards after Iraq(1996) Cameron, Jason Kenneth; Keeley, James F.While remaining a party to the NPT and a member in "good standing" in the IAEA, Iraq proved that a non-nuclear weapon state could pursue a nuclear weapons programme by co-locating undeclared nuclear activities at declared sites and by locating clandestine nuclear activities at undeclared sites. This shook the confidence of the international community in the IAEA's comprehensive safeguards system. Consequently, the IAEA embarked on the "93+2" programme with the goal of improving its ability to detect diversions of nuclear material and undeclared nuclear activities. The reform proposals, particularly the environmental sampling techniques and the proliferation critical pathways analysis, significantly strengthen its ability to detect diversions of nuclear material and to expose co-located undeclared nuclear activities. Debate amongst its member states over sovereignty and security concerns has, however, eroded the broad access and increased information provisions that would have better enabled the IAEA to expose nuclear activities at undeclared sites.
