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.

Example text

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.
