Summary
"The book analyzes the transnationalization of politics in several societies concerned by programs of democracy promotion. Its main objective is to understand how these new global norms and programs create forms of appropriation and resistance at the local level. Democracy is not only a political norm glorified at the global level. The movement of human rights and democratic values equally generates also an industry of Aid. Democracy programs become symbolic and material resources, which enter into the local political game. Through the circulation and use of these kind of resources provided by transnational networks generated by the aid, there is a transfiguration of the political game. The present collective work draws upon both anthropology and political science and relies on field research carried out in Afghanistan, Kyrgyzstan, Cuba, Romania, Indonesia, Bolivia, Nigeria, Senegal, Bulgaria and Azerbaijan. The book proposes an original reflection about the emergence of a new form of governmentality, which analyses both local and global actors in specific national spaces"--Provided by publisher
