[First paragraph]Drug policy in the Caribbean region provides a testing ground for one of the key themes in the social sciences over recent years, the relationship of knowledge and power. Acting as intermediary between northern donors and the microstates of the region, the organization - United Nations International Control Programme (UNDCP) - applies the models framed by northern expertise even when local experience suggests they are inappropriate. Instead of adapting, in the light of new evidence, the organization mobilizes its resources on stifling dissent.

Abstract

Diagnosing a gap in our knowledge on populist phenomena in East Asian democracies, especially the lack of attention paid to the region by comparative studies, the organisers of the online lecture series ‘Populism in East Asian Democracies’ (PinEAD) brought together small but substantial research on East Asia by inviting presentations by nine experts, three each on Japan, South Korea, and Taiwan. Their findings showed how different phenomena and actors analysed as populists in East Asian democracies are from those in Europe or the Americas. They also highlighted how heterogeneous the group of politicians referred to as ‘East Asian populists’ is. While, on an abstract level, most East Asian populists are similar, in that they appeal to voters discontented with the democratically elected ruling parties and executives and promise to govern in a way more favourable to ‘the people’, they do so in ways that differentiate them from the standard style of political campaigning and rhetoric in their respective country.

Der Band dokumentiert die facettenreiche Auseinandersetzung mit dem Motiv des Gestischen, das aus dem Sprechen über Musik nicht wegzudenken ist. Damit dokumentiert er dessen Produktivität auch und gerade in der Heterogenität seiner Verwendungsweisen. Dass Gesten in der Musik eine Rolle spielen, erscheint unmittelbar plausibel. Das bedeutet aber nicht, dass Einigkeit über den Begriff der musikalischen Geste oder des Gestischen in der Musik und seine Reichweite herrschte: Von der Alltagssprache bis zur Musikanalyse durchziehen sehr unterschiedliche Auffassungen des Gestischen die vielfältigen Diskurse über Musik. Der Band versammelt eine Reihe von Disziplinen, die in neuen, bereits veröffentlichten oder hier erstmals im Deutschen zugänglichen Untersuchungen das Zusammenspiel von Musik und Geste in den Mittelpunkt stellen.
