Jaroslav Weinfurter: The spandrels of urban security: extending the formalist turn in security studies

The article shows that by examining the politics of spatial by-products of formal co-development, explored through the conceptual prisms of evolutionary biology and spherology, and the broader dynamics of urban security we may not only develop a better grasp of the self-organising and informal efforts of local actors to construct their own self-contained lifeworlds and peaceworlds, but also strike a more fruitful balance between formal and functional analysis.

Reconfiguring the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor: Geo-Economic Pipe Dreams Versus Geopolitical Realities

Reconfiguring the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor: Geo-Economic Pipe Dreams Versus Geopolitical Realities

There has been a great deal of speculation and prognostication about the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC). The project’s name suggests it is intended to be an ‘economic corridor’ connecting Pakistan overland with China’s Xinjiang province. This book examines whether CPEC’s primary purpose is as an overland conduit for trade and economic cooperation between China and Pakistan. The key finding is that aims related to regional geopolitics and internal security have, in reality, a more significant impact. The book demonstrates that China’s goals in Pakistan are primarily geopolitical rather than geo-economic, since the notion of constructing an economic and transportation ‘corridor’ between Pakistan and China is logistically and economically problematic due to a range of foreseeable problems. Most importantly, border disputes with India and the containment of domestic separatism motivate are the driving forces for cooperation between the partners.
