Las Comisiones Y La Pirámide: La Recentralización Conflictiva Del Poder En El Ife, Andreas Schedler Jan 1999

Las Comisiones Y La Pirámide: La Recentralización Conflictiva Del Poder En El Ife, Andreas Schedler

Andreas Schedler

Mexico’s Federal Electoral Institute (IFE) suffers from a dualistic and ambiguous internal structure. On the one hand, the electoral codes confers considerable powers to the Institute’s administrative organs. On the other hand, it endows the General Council, IFE’s superior body of governance and oversight, with legal responsibilities so fundamental, comprehensive, and open that they tend to subvert administrative autonomy. According to the institutionalist interpretation offered in the present essay (on the basis of a series of open-ended interviews with leading representatives of the Institute), the General Council tries to resolve these structural contradictions to its benefit by ...


La Universidad Latinoamericana En La Encrucijada Del Siglo Xxi, Roberto Rodríguez-Gómez Jan 1999

La Universidad Latinoamericana En La Encrucijada Del Siglo Xxi, Roberto Rodríguez-Gómez

Roberto Rodríguez-Gómez

Con el propósito de discernir las tendencias de cambio en los sistemas de educación superior de la región latinoamericana, en este trabajo se pasa revista a las principales dinámicas de cambio que se han derivado de las relaciones entre los modelos de desarrollo económico, las modalidades de régimen político y las propuestas de reforma de la enseñanza superior. La revisión comprende las décadas de los años ochenta y noventa del siglo XX, y, a manera de comentario final, se proponen algunos retos que, a juicio del autor, se perfilan en el panorama de las instituciones y de los sistemas nacionales ...


Género Y Políticas De Educación Superior En México, Roberto Rodríguez-Gómez Jan 1999

Género Y Políticas De Educación Superior En México, Roberto Rodríguez-Gómez

Roberto Rodríguez-Gómez

Las políticas de la educación superior en México y el género son, desde luego, un tema complejo, que ofrece varias y diversas posibilidades de aproximación, entre otras: ¿cuáles han sido las líneas de política pública en el ámbito de la educación superior proyectadas desde un enfoque de género?, ¿cuáles son los efectos de las políticas educativas gubernamentales sobre las oportunidades de acceso y promoción en la enseñanza superior?, ¿de qué manera se intersectan las políticas específicas que están orientando cambios en la educación superior con las formas de desigualdad de género prevalecientes?, ¿hasta qué punto podemos discernir analíticamente las dinámicas ...

An American Perspective On Belgian And British Environmental Law Within Europe, Eric W. Orts Jan 1999

An American Perspective On Belgian And British Environmental Law Within Europe, Eric W. Orts

Legal Studies and Business Ethics Papers

It is unusual these days for an American to offer an outsider's view of a comparative topic that does not involve the United States either as one side of the comparison or an interested party. One does not need to look to disagreements over policies regarding NATO, Bosnia, or Iraq to find this tendency. As Europeans know only too well, we Americans are often parochial in our views, if not isolationist. The recent success of the U.S. economy as compared to Europe and Asia has not helped us to lose an unjustified sense of our own primacy. A ...


The Single-Issue Party Thesis: Extreme Right Parties And The Immigration Issue, Cas Mudde Dec 1998

The Single-Issue Party Thesis: Extreme Right Parties And The Immigration Issue, Cas Mudde

Cas Mudde

This article examines the single-issue party thesis for the specific case of contemporary extreme right parties (ERPs) and the immigration issue. I define the single-issue party as (l) having an electorate with no particular social structure; (2) being supported predominantly on the basis of one single issue; (3) lacking an ideological programme; and (4) addressing only one all-encompassing issue. On the basis of a comprehensive analysis of electoral studies and party literature the single-issue party thesis is rejected on all counts. At best, immigration has been a catalyst for most ERPs in certain periods of time. Their ideology and broader ...
