Synopsis:

For the last two decades nearly all analysis of insecurity, conflict or development has stressed the need to "empower" or "capacity-build" local individuals or communities. This ground-breaking book presents a radical challenge to such approaches, arguing that solutions to the world's problems are not understood within external structures of economic, political and social relations, but instead with individuals and groups – often the most marginal and powerless. This has gone hand-in-hand with a shift from state-based to society-based understandings of the world. Chandler provocatively argues that this has limited available transformative possibilities, and to achieve real change - both at a local and a global level – requires a radical re-think in Western thought.

About the Author:

David Chandler is Professor of International Relations at the University of Westminster. He is author of several books and edits the Journal of Statebuilding and Intervention.

Book Description ZED BOOKS LTD, United Kingdom, 2013. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. The last two decades have seen the remarkable rise to dominance of human-centred understandings of the world. Indeed, it is now rare to read any analysis of insecurity, conflict or development which does not discuss the need to empower or capacity-build local individuals or communities. In this path-breaking book, Chandler presents a radical challenge to such approaches, arguing that the solutions to the world s problems are now not perceived to lie within external structures of economic, political and social relations, but instead with individuals and groups who are often seen to be the most marginal and powerless.
