  2. 2. The State as Investment Market An Analytical Framework for Interpreting Politics and Bureaucracy in Kyrgyzstan

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Department of Government, Uppsala University

    Author : Johan Engvall; Li Bennich-Björkman; Svante Cornell; Astrid Hedin; Henry Hale; [2011]
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Kyrgyzstan; state; investment market; sale of public offices; corruption; politics; bureaucracy; Statskunskap; Political Science;

    Abstract : What type of state has emerged in post-Soviet Kyrgyzstan, and what kind of theoretical framework must we develop to understand its behavior and performance? This study argues that the logic of political and bureaucratic organization follows that of an investment market in which public offices are purchased with the expectation of yielding a favorable return. This theory represents a novel perspective on the post-communist state which has hitherto either been premised on modernization theory or emphasized a robustly personalistic logic of political organization.

    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; military violence; bureaucratisation; operational level; targeting; military masculinity; Krigsvetenskap; Krigsvetenskap;

    Abstract : Western use of military violence is becoming increasingly centralised, partly through the use of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (or more commonly referred to as “drones” in the literature). Drone technology allows control and command of military operations to be put under one roof, and as military organisations traditionally have a close dependence on technological developments, procedures and regulations for centralised command and control have developed in close concert with advances in drone technology.

    Abstract : The liberal ideas of New Political Thinking, introduced as the governing paradigm of Soviet foreign policy by Mikhail Gorbachev in the late 1980's, were to a substantial extent "adopted" and applied by the new leadership of post-Soviet Russia, not only in its dealings with the Western world, but also when formulating a foreign policy towards the 14 Newly Independent States. However, by mid-1992, a mere six months after the Soviet collapse, there were clear indications that a dramatic change in Russian foreign policy towards its next-door neighbours had come about.
