Dissertations and Theses

The Bush administration's decision to abandon the Kyoto Protocol can be explained by prospect theory.

Second, it analyses the location, type, and electoral strength of party-based Euroscepticism in the four candidate countries of East Central Europe – the Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland, and Slovakia. Third, it contributes to the ideology vs. strategy debate, showing that ideology is ...
