The article explores the relationship between genocide and the settler colonialism. The author asserts that though the settler-colonial logic of elimination has manifested as genocidal-they should be distinguished. The article further analyzes the negative and positive dimensions of settler colonialism. While on the one hand it attempts to dissolve native societies, it also establishes a new colonial society on the seized land base.

The decision by the Victorian Minister of Tourism to announce the 'restoration' of the original Aboriginal name 'Guriward' of the Grampians mountain range in western Victoria in 1989 without consulting the local Koori community is discussed. It is suggested that the transformation of Koori rock-art sites as tourist centres along with the partial and selective name changes demonstrated that the white Australians still indulged in an unchanged behaviour of altering Koori culture according to their...

Les auteures examinent l'approche conceptuelle qui a conduit a cette lacune en s'attardant a la terminologie employee et a la distinction qu'impose la typologie du genocide entre genocide ideologique et genocide provoque par l'expansion d'un groupe aux depens d'un autre, et en soulignant l'importance qui est rattachee dans cette meme typologie a la logique qui motive les reg...

Abstract The emphasis on culture in studies of colonialism tends to obscure other forms of colonial power while making it impossible to contextualize the cultural argument and assess its salience. Rather than focusing on texts, systems of signification, and procedures of knowledge generation, as the colonial discourse literature is wont to do, a fuller understanding of colonial powers is achieved by explaining colonialism's basic geographical dispossessions of the colonized. In so doing, the iss...

Their relationship with the Jewish people and the State of Israel has been fundamental in sha...

Abstract Drug trafficking in Mexico has been widely debated from economic and legal perspectives. Some studies conclude that corruption is to blame ( Garay & Albaran, 2012 , Grayson, 2010 , Valdes, 2013 ); yet others argue that criminal organizations are producing terror-based governance patterns grounded in their ambivalent relationship with the State ( Campbell, 2010 , Gibler, 2017 , Reyes, 2015 , Paley, 2014 , Paley, 2015 ). However, what role do mestizaje and gender play in shaping the dynam...

Abstract As global capitalism is expanding to the most remote areas of the world, the notion of “frontier”, where competing social orders are contesting each other, is gaining traction in academic analyses. Contemporary frontiers are associated with resource exploitation in marginalized spaces and processes of socioecological transformation, which are characterized as particularly violent. This article offers a conceptual contribution to the frontier debate by putting violence in the center of a...
