Pursuing Regulatory Relief: Strategic Participation And Litigation In U.S. Osha Rulemaking, Patrick Schmidt Mar 2002

Pursuing Regulatory Relief: Strategic Participation And Litigation In U.S. Osha Rulemaking, Patrick Schmidt

Patrick Schmidt

Administrative agencies in the United States have developed highly formalized and complex processes for public participation in rulemaking, especially in areas of social regulation such as the environment and workplace safety and health. This case study considers the significance of participation in formal rulemaking processes by connecting the quality of participation to the strategic possibilities in litigation between private interests and regulatory agencies. Specifically, the strategic possibilities of the leading interest groups engaged in the Occupational Safety and Health Administration's major "Lockout/Tagout" rulemaking illustrate how legal resources are created through the development of evidence and claims in hearings ...

Globalization, Regimes, And Development, Ross Burkhart Dec 2001

Globalization, Regimes, And Development, Ross Burkhart

Ross Burkhart

Does globalization lead to a higher quality of life? Or, does it lead to more difficult times? In what ways does globalization have its influences? Is it strictly through economic development, or by way of more broad-based human development? Or, perhaps, in a flavor-of-the-month way, is globalization overrated in its impact, with other political, economic, social, and cultural factors better poised to provide us with a more complete understanding of the global development condition? To find answers to these questions, after a brief introduction and literature summary, I put forth in this chapter a measure of globalization based on an ...

The Leviathan's Choice: Capital Punishment In The Twenty-First Century, J. Michael Martinez, William D. Richardson, Brandon D. Hornsby

The death penalty is one of the most contentious issues of our time and has generated an astonishing amount of arguments both for and against capital punishment.

An ideal reader for students and policy makers, The Leviathan's Choice is essential for everyone following the arguments surrounding the ...


The Carter Administration And The Evolution Of American Nuclear Non-Proliferation Policy, 1977-1981, J. Michael Martinez Dec 2001

The Carter Administration And The Evolution Of American Nuclear Non-Proliferation Policy, 1977-1981, J. Michael Martinez

J. Michael Martinez

In the wake of India's May 1998 decision to resume nuclear testing for the first time since 1974, as well as arch-rival Pakistan's subsequent response, the attention of the world again has focused on nuclear nonproliferation policy as a means of maintaining stability in politically troubled regions of the world. The 1990s proved to be an uncertain time for nonproliferation policy. Pakistan acquired nuclear capabilities. Iraq displayed its well-known intransigence by refusing to allow International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) arms inspectors access to facilities suspected of manufacturing nuclear weapons. North Korea maintained a nuclear weapons program despite opposition ...
