This publication utilises the starting to be phenomenon of British soldier narratives from Iraq and Afghanistan to discover how British squaddies make experience in their function on those advanced, multi-dimensional operations. It goals to interfere within the debates inside of serious feminist scholarship over even if squaddies can ever be brokers of peace.

Social conﬂict therefore plays out not merely outside the state but within and between state apparatuses (Jessop, 2008, pp. 36–7). As Migdal (2001, p. 20) observes: The sheer unwieldy character of states’ far-ﬂung parts, the many fronts on which they ﬁght battles with groupings with conﬂicting standards of behaviour, and the lure for their ofﬁcials of alternative sets of rules that might, for example, empower or enrich them personally or privilege the group to which they are most loyal, all have led to diverse practices by states’ parts or fragments.
Since then, armed conﬂict among its member-states has been relatively minimal, leading many observers to identify ASEAN as the developing world’s most successful regional organisation. Its success is often attributed to the adoption of non-interference as a cardinal principle of regional order, which underpinned a sub-regional reconciliation mechanism, or even the creation of a regional identity. This chapter offers an alternative reading of ASEAN’s origins and evolution. The claim that non-interference successfully created a stable international order is undermined by the fact of continued interventionist practices by ASEAN states throughout the Cold War.
It is clearly very difﬁcult to explain macrohistorical patterns of sovereignty and intervention through a succession of cost-beneﬁt analyses made by individual rulers. For example, European Union (EU) states do not correspond to the Westphalian ideal-type, but nor is their de facto sovereignty constantly being ﬂexed or relaxed in a sporadic fashion corresponding to short-term cost-beneﬁt calculations. European states are instead enmeshed in a complex web of institutionalised, dynamic and multi-level relationships that have transformed their practice of sovereignty, and indeed their very statehood, while entrenching particular political and economic policies.
