(Robert Jackson & George Sorensen)
Muhammmad Alaydrus / 201310360311128
Many Important Questions in the study of IR are connected with the theory and practice of sovereign statehood.There are two perspectives about the proper scope of IR.At one extreme scholarly focus is exclusively on states and interstate relations; but another extreme IR includes almost everything that has to do with human relations across the world. So,it is very important to study about this two different prespectives if we hope to understand about the rounded and knowledge of IR.
The state system is the main point of reference both for traditional and for new approaches.There are debates about how we should conceptualize the state and different IR theories take somewhat different approaches.but,however the fact is that state and the state system remain at the center of academic analysis and discussion in IR. We Must be Alert to the fact that the sovereign state is a contested theoritical concept.there are many different answers about the question “What is the state?” ; “What is the state system?”. There are different answers is because depending on the theoritical approach adopted.None of the answers are stricktly speaking either correct or incorrect because the truth is, the state is a multifaceted and somewhat confusing entity.
The state is have two different dimensions.it is divided into two broad categories. The first dimensions is the state as a government versus the state as a country. The state is the national government. It means, it is the highest governing authority in a country,it posseses internal sovereignity.that is the Internal Aspect of the state.Internal Aspect concern state-society relations.And,from the external Aspect is,both the government and the domestic society make up the state.the state is not merely a…...

Changing Our World

...Changing Our World Dawn Glover I was always aware of the fight for equality among women and men but I was never aware of the amount of strategic planning and combined effort that this battle took to win. Foolishly, I viewed the battle simply as one gender against the other, blind to the variety of what was deemed important to the different types and classes of women. The story of women’s liberation is proof that good communication is the key ingredient to solving differences. I was very impressed with the amount of combined effort and corporation it took to put together the Boston Women’s Health Book Collective. I always viewed the fight for women’s liberation as a slow process, never viewing it in the different stages that now seem so obvious. In my opinion the first wave of women had the hardest battle to conquer. Although they focused on mainly one issue, the right to vote, it was the first barrier of many to break down. The first barrier is usually the toughest, as is apparent in the number of years it took to complete this task. The second wave feminist did not have it easy but at least some men were already on their way to accepting women’s right. The fight for global women’s rights may end up being the toughest fight to win. As mentioned previously corporation and understanding is the key to getting tasks accomplished and with the great distances and differences in nationalities among women globally it is going to take a great deal of......

Changing Patterns in the United States

...Changing Patterns in the United States When you reach the part of your life where you find that you have survived many decades of life and experience you will begin to see patterns and the repeating of patterns in many things. As part of this assignment I have chosen to focus on something which I have direct experience with, and that is the TV industry. Before returning to school I spent about 5 years working for Dish Network in their Executive Resolution Office, combined with having been born before the age of cable television or the internet. I have witnessed the great many changes in TV over the decades, from over the air transmission of television programs, to the original satellite TV options (with the 6-8 ft dishs), to the birth and growth of cable television along with the changes in satellite TV. The past few years have shown a significant change in how consumers are viewing broadcast programming. A few years ago when I chose to return to school I cancelled my Dish Network subscription and created a Paid Streaming Netflix and Hulu (free not paid) account. At the time Netflix had hundreds if not thousands of hours of movies and older TV series to choose from, and now they are premiering their own original programming that has been nominated for Emmy awards. This is something no one expected from a company that established a business from (basically) renting reruns of programs and movies to its customers. Now Netflix has shown that they are here to stay but they......

The World Today Changing

...The modern world faces many major problems to wihich there are no easy solutions. These include unemployment, helath, over-population and of course the environment. All have a bearing on all our lives, but is the environment really the most important? If people are unemployed, they are unable to earn money ant it is a fact of life that without an income it is difficult to live. Of course, work provides more than financial support; it gives people self-esteem and pride. Unfortunately, technological developments and other factors mean that the job market is shirinking world-wide and young people have reduced prospects for work. Although this is certainly a major threat to people´s well-being, it needs to be addressed by individual governments rather than globaly. Health is clearly an important concern that affects both individuals and the planet as a whole. Even though many illnesses have been eradicated, others remain a thereat and the overuse of antibiotics has led to the development of resistant strains of bacteria. Nevertheless, on the whole, general health is improving, and in the developing coutries medical aid programmes are already working towards creating a healthier population. Over-population has implications for all of us, and improved general helath means that people are living longer. However, as with health, there are already programmes in place implementing measures to deal with not only a rising population, but an ageing population. So what......

Society in the United States an Ever Changing World

...Society in the United States an Ever Changing World ETH/125 08/26/2012 Society in the United States an Ever Changing World In the United States we have the ability to come across many different people and be able to learn from one another. In earlier times, we have been able to see how different some people were treated than others, but we are now able to live among one another and try to live peacefully. This is a cycle that will continue to happen as people become more and more tolerable to the differences we all have to bring to the table. This will only become easier with time as we all learn to accept the differences that we bring to the table. The benefits to living in a diverse community and society are that people are able to learn about other cultures and possibly be able to pick up one or more things from one another. When people are not familiar with other cultures or even places around the world they may feel a bit out of place and afraid when they do come to meet them, but this can all be avoided by being a bit more open minded and learn from others. Learning from a Diverse Society I have been taught the idea that everyone is equal, but I have finally found the meaning behind the saying. There had been some confusion in my eyes on whether or not everyone was the same, but in the end I find that we are all the same with different upbringings and possibly different culture.......

Changing the World

...on changing the world. "This is the beginning of a new day. You have been given this day to use as you will. You can waste it or use it for good. What you do today is important because you are exchanging a day of your life for it. When tomorrow comes, this day will be gone forever; in its place is something that you have left behind... let it be something good." - Anonymous After reading, I was inspired and we can ask ourselves “What we are going to do today?” Our answer, which is usually 'change the world', might seem a little over-ambitious to some of us. Maybe because some of our heroes and great idealists had ultimately failed to change the world. I am referring to Mahatma Gandhi who had brought down the oppressive British Empire with non-violent protest, Martin-Luther King who had helped change the fortunes of millions of African Americans and our very own, Ninoy Aquino who relentlessly exposed and revealed all the graft and corruption happening behind the curtains of politics. His death sparked a series of revolutions against the administration leading to the EDSA Revolution of 1986. They had fairly changed the world with their messages of love, peace and non-resistance but the evil still exists. Actually, 'change the world' means 'change the entire world forever so there are no more problems at all anywhere'. But in my mind, even the smallest change is a change worth making. If I can raise the spirits of just one person for a few hours, I have changed the world.......

How Media Is Changing the World

...Medias are changing the world – from the uprisings in the Middle East to the relationships with your friends – media are central to our lives, our businesses and our governments. We spend more time watching television and engaging in social media than on almost any other social activity. Medias change rapidly, with individuals and citizens producing more of their own content and interacting with others over global networks. Different situations require you to use different mediums if you want to convey your message most effectively. A message to the technical support about an employee's computer that has been infected by a virus. This message, although important, is not usually critical. This message can be delivered by either email or over the phone. A message from HR to all employees, explaining the changes to the company health plan in the coming year. This is a message that is best done on an all-hands meeting or conference call with an email follow up for reference. This is important information and should be addressed as such. A message from the CEO of a large company to employees, explaining negative news regarding the company appearing on national news channels. Negative news usually requires face to face contact. He should go to the company’s location and address it as such. It will create more of an impact if done this way as well. A message from a gym manager to clients about temporarily closing the pool in the gym. This can be done via email or posting on a......

Performance Appraisal in the Contemporary World

...In the International Journal of Advance Research in Computer Science and Management Studies, an article entitled Performance Appraisal in the Contemporary World gives a great overview of how important performance appraisals are. The way that its employees perceive an organization in important. There are five components of interaction within an organization. These consist of structure, system, culture, leader behavior and employee’s psychological needs When employees are satisfied, their perception of the organization is positive. Employers demand commitment and dedication from their employees and the employee expect more from the employer . Performance appraisals are a great way to determine how effective an employee is. These are conducted on an individual level. Performance appraisals allow an employee to be rated on specific goals, tasks, and accomplishments that they conduct over a period. An individual is typically rated based on their contributions to the organizations goals as well. Providing feedback to an individual can be very beneficial to reward them for what they have accomplished as well as feedback regarding improvements they could make. There are four different methods of a contemporary performance appraisal.

Marketing in the Changing World of Business

...Marketing in the Changing World of Business Charlene Eubanks-Close BUS620: Managerial Marketing Jacqueline Gilliard December 12, 2011 Ashford University In today’s economy, gaining customer is the most important part of all business. Marketing is the most effective tool used by business to succeed at gaining new customer and retaining their current customer. Marketing is the soul of any business. Understanding marketing began with defining what marketing is and how important it to the world of advertising. The definition of marketing has an endless number of possible definitions. Psychology, statistics, art, logical and creative thinking are all involved in defining marketing. Marketing can best be described as an exchange between vendor and consumer. Marketing has been used to sell almost every product known to man. There is an endless list of items in which marketing has helped progress but sometimes that are things which are more difficult to advertise.

Changing World of Communication

...The Changing World of Communication Communications is the key to success and successful businesses depend on good communication. Every business depends on communication to deliver product and service. Business communication plays an important role managing day-to-day activities at work. Business communications technology is advancing each day with new products changing the way people communicate. Two forms of communication are verbal or nonverbal. Verbal communication is letters, phones conversation, text messaging, e-mails, and Web-sites. Nonverbal communication is the use of pictures or the delivery of interpersonal nonverbal signs of representation. An important factor of communication is to understand and know the audience and their needs. Goodwill plays an important role in the success of a company. How companies treat their customers and employees will increase sales and productivity (Locke & Kienzler, "1," 2008). The day-to-day communication starts when employees come to work and punch the time-clock letting employers know that positions are occupied to perform the work. Some employees attend verbal meeting with co- workers or with team members to discuss the agenda for the day. These internal audiences, for example management and employees, communicate by oral, nonverbal, and written communication. External audiences are customers, suppliers, employment agencies, and investors who communicate in the same form but mainly for promotions, and sales. Success depends on...

Leading in a Changing World

...Leading in a Changing World A “person who guides“ (thesaurus.com) can be defined as a leader. Leadership is a skill that one cannot learn, but one gains out of experience and practice. There is no scale or unit to measure leadership but it is the by the examples that one sets, people conclude as to how good or bad a leader the person is. The level of motivation that one can provide to someone shows the leadership skills of a person. One can be a leader at any age or in any phase of life. Leaders may not always be for others welfare; they may be dictatorial in nature thinking seldom about others good. I have always been one of those students who have been more interested in everything but studying. From playing sports to participating in cultural festivals and from social work to organizing inter school events I have always been a leader in organizing activities. The one philosophy I follow in life is to do things in a way so that people want to be led by you and fortunately my passion has had me on the winning side of things always. I have won an award for integrity and service in my school life and was named the interactor of the year for the year 2007 by the Rotary International district 3290. I have always believed in learning from my mistakes and I still practice it religiously. I came to London in the month of September last year. The biggest challenge I had foreseen for myself was that of overcoming homesickness. I have been bought up in a very closely-knit......

Contemporary Workplace Change in the United States

...Contemporary Workplace Change in the United States In order to earn a living, an individual has to work. People all around the world are working in different jobs just to make a living. Their jobs vary as opposed to type, pay, environment, and many other factors. However, over the years these factors have been changing due to the economy. According to Sweet and Meiksins in Changing Contours of Work, the old economy represents the various ways of assigning and structuring work that developed in the wake of the Industrial Revolution through the mid-20th century. Systems that were built around mass production, gender divisions of labor, unionized labor, and a variety of other enduring workplace practices were included in that economy. The United States was a major, and dominating force in the old economy. On the other hand, the idea of the new economy is questioning the nature of work whether it has changed, or not, and to what degree these changes are affecting lives on and off the job. There have been new jobs, new workers, and new work designs that are changing some of the ways of performing work, by whom, and the returns received. However, there are still some features of the old economy that tend to be permanent and dominated in the new economy from the old one. An example of that as mentioned in the book “Changing Contours of Work” would be old business that moved from the developed world to emerging economies; the job type did not change, but the people performing these...
