Example text

The literature neglects the role of economic actors and their interconnectedness with movements and the state. That is why authors such as Brand (2000: 32) or Narr (1995: 84) accuse research on NSM as suffering from a substantial theoretical deficit by focusing on the micro institution NSM. In contrast, for the second set of theoretical approaches discussed in this section – radical global civil society approaches – the domestic level has vanished. The authors not only question the moral legitimacy of traditional state based politics, but also declare its relevance in the analysis of international relations non-existent.

First, each struggle, though firmly rooted in local conditions, leaps immediately at the global level and attacks the imperial constitution in its generality. Second, all the struggles destroy the traditional distinction between economic and political struggles, struggles over the form of life. IR and NGOs – A Simplistic Story? 37 They are constituent struggles, creating new public spaces and new forms of community. (Hardt and Negri 2000: 56) In contrast to the processes of transnationalisation identified by Hardt and Negri, NGOs are and remain largely national in character.

As I will show below, the NGOs involved in the landmines campaign undertook traditional political functions such as governmental advisory work, and even celebrated their involvement in official state politics as one of their main channels of influence. Overall, the conceptualisation of NGOs seems to be under-theorised and in parts empirically uninformed. The heterogeneity of non-state actors is neglected and the specific interests of NGOs are ignored in order to integrate the diversity of NGOs into the theoretical framework.
