Crime Victims In Criminal Justice Curriculum: Are We There Yet?, Lisa Bostaph, Andrew Giacomazzi, Patrick Brady, Christopher Beattie Dec 2013

Crime Victims In Criminal Justice Curriculum: Are We There Yet?, Lisa Bostaph, Andrew Giacomazzi, Patrick Brady, Christopher Beattie

Lisa Growette Bostaph

While theoretical explanations, system response, and policy work on offenders and specific crime types are the backbone of criminal justice curricula in the U.S., a similar breadth and depth of education on crime victims appear to be lacking in traditional criminal justice curricula. This paper reports the results of a national study of 679 randomly selected criminal justice program curricula. Institutional, departmental, and course-level variables indicate that while victim-based research has proliferated, it does not mirror the extent to which victim-based courses are required in criminal justice programs. Theoretical, professional, and policy implications of the results are discussed.

Between Myths And Reality--Macedonia Between Turkey And The European Union, Marija Đorđeska Dec 2011

Between Myths And Reality--Macedonia Between Turkey And The European Union, Marija Đorđeska

Dr Marija Dordeska

The spirit of Alexander the Great still stirs ghosts between Greece and the Republic of Macedonia. Macedonia is on its way to the EU and Greece represents an obstacle for these processes in the aftermath of the name dispute and the Greek veto on the Macedonian membership in NATO and the European Union. The major asset Greece has in regards to Macedonia is the veto power over the future accession talks Macedonia could have with international organizations, especially with the European Union. Instead of Greece taking Macedonia under its wing, Macedonia continues to be perceived as a threat to Greek ...

From Cheeseburgers To Chopsticks, Caitlin Byrne Jul 2011

From Cheeseburgers To Chopsticks, Caitlin Byrne

Caitlin Byrne

Extract: In the post Cold-War globalized world, Australian diplomats are entering into unchartered waters. At a strategic level, Australia's domestic and foreign policy priorities-including climate change, regional and global security and economic stability-are increasingly global in nature. At the same time, the international geopolitical order is undergoing profound change. The rise and rise of China, the emergence of India and the corresponding decline in the unchallenged paramountcy of the USA are powerful factors challenging the foundations of the international order. Such changes could signal the end of the Western liberal order, so how should Australia prepare? This case finds ...

The Twitter Effect, Caitlin Byrne

Caitlin Byrne

Extract: In its short history, Twitter-the latest social networking phenomenon-has emerged from within the boundaries of political oppression as a potential enabler of human rights. A product of Western culture. Twitter's relevance to human rights rests in liberal political theory. In particular, Twitter gives effect to first generation human rights, articulated by the UN's Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UNDHR) in 1948, and subsequently codified in international law by the UN's International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR) in 1966. The potential of Twitter presents both serious challenges and opportunities for advancing human rights, which this ...


Canada And The United States: Approaches To Global Environmental Policy-Making, Leslie Alm, Ross Burkhart Jul 2011

Canada And The United States: Approaches To Global Environmental Policy-Making, Leslie Alm, Ross Burkhart

Ross Burkhart

The purpose of this review essay is to provide a starting point for the evaluation of the ways in which Canada and the United States approach global environmental policy-making. Each country has its own special place regarding environmental leadership—one tends toward exceptionalism and unilateralism, while the other tends toward participation and multilateralism. Essential to explaining how and why Canada and the United States approach global environmental concerns is understanding their relationship to each other, both as nation-states and countries dedicated to the protection of the environment.

Is Spotlighting Enough? Environmental Ngos And The Commission For Environmental Cooperation, Leslie Alm, Ross Burkhart

Ross Burkhart

The initial questions of our survey questionnaire focused on whether ENGOs were familiar with the CEC, and if so, how frequently they followed the proceedings of the CEC Tables 1 and 2 clearly illustrate that a substantial majority of respondents were not familiar with the CEC (66.3%) and that only a small percentage of those who were aware of the CEC frequently followed its proceedings (18.5%).5 In short, our survey results indicate that the CEC has a long way to go gain the attention of most ENGOs in both Canada and the United States. A Canadian ENGO ...

En un escenario comercial caracterizado por el auge de Acuerdos de Libre Comercio (ALC) en América Latina y el mundo – conocido como Spaghetti Bowl – la búsqueda de alternativas para la reducción de la complejidad jurídica y económica que implica la proliferación de ALC, es en la actualidad uno de los temas relevantes en el contexto académico y político regional.

Progress Delayed: State Of Tobacco Control Policymaking In Oklahoma From 2005-2011, Michael S. Givel, Ami E. Stearns, Andrew L. Spivak

Michael S. Givel

• Oklahoma’s 1987 Smoking In Public Places Act required the inclusion of smoking sections in restaurants and pre-empted more stringent local anti-tobacco laws with state regulations. • With the 2001 arrival of an aggressive new Commissioner of Health, Dr. Leslie Beitsch, the tide turned with new legislation (Senate Joint Resolution 21 in 2003) that prohibited smoking inside public places and required restaurants to build separately-ventilated “smoking rooms.” • In 2004, State Question 713 increased the cigarette tax by 55 cents per package. • Dr. Beitsch resigned in 2003 and since that time, efforts toward clean air have stalled. Although restaurants were required to ...
