Obama In Words And Deeds, Donna R. Hoffman, Alison D. Howard Nov 2012

Obama In Words And Deeds, Donna R. Hoffman, Alison D. Howard

Alison Dana Howard

Objective 
We assess how President Barack Obama acted as chief legislator using the rhetoric contained in his initial joint address to Congress and his three subsequent State of the Union addresses (SUAs).
Method 
Using content analysis, we analyze how Obama conveyed policy substance (both credit claiming and position taking) and used symbolism as he carried out the constitutional requirements of reporting and recommending measures to Congress.
Results 
Obama's first-term SUA rhetoric is consistent in regard to credit claiming; he devotes about 17 percent of his speeches to this activity. His SUAs typically contain about 35 legislative requests, and these ...

The Present And Future Of Diplomacy And Diplomatic Studies, Stuart Murray, Paul Sharp, Geoffrey Wiseman, David Criekemans, Jan Melissen

Stuart Murray

Of late, practical and theoretical interest in diplomacy and diplomatic studies has grown, prompting a number of diplomatic scholars to undertake a long overdue stock take of the past, present, and future of the subfield. What follows, therefore are five essays by both senior and junior scholars of diplomacy reflecting on the origins of diplomatic studies, showcasing contemporary scholarship, and suggesting some of the opportunities and challenges the study of diplomacy poses for those working in the broader ISA and International Relations (IR) communities in the future. Its aims are simple: to demonstrate that diplomacy and diplomatic theory are central ...

Reforming The Organisation Of The Islamic Conference? Implications For Religious Dialogue And Political Pluralism In Southeast Asia, R. Ferguson Sep 2012

Reforming The Organisation Of The Islamic Conference? Implications For Religious Dialogue And Political Pluralism In Southeast Asia, R. Ferguson

R. James Ferguson

Extract:
Islamic politics remains at the centre of international relations in the early 21st century, with important implications for regional processes in Southeast Asia, the Middle East and Eurasian-Central Asian affairs. One mechanism for the aspirations of states with Muslim majorities and communities is the OIC, the Organisation of the Islamic Conference, now with 57 members and several observers. The OIC also has organisational linkages with NAM (the Non-Aligned Movement), the UN, the League of Arab States, the Economic Cooperation Organisation, the AU (African Union) and indirectly with ASEAN. Likewise, the MNLF (Moro National Liberation Front) and Turkish Cyprus secured ...


International Regimes And Globalization: Tools For Managing Complex Change, Ronald Ferguson Sep 2012

International Regimes And Globalization: Tools For Managing Complex Change, Ronald Ferguson

R. James Ferguson

International Regimes have long been understood as cooperative mechanisms that allow states to work with each other, shaping expectations and generating areas of convergence on specific issues. (Chen & Chen 2009; Gorg & Ulrich 2006; Brahm 2005; Keohane 1982). Ranging across numerous areas, including fisheries conservation, food production, international trade, proliferation control regimes, control of illicit goods, monetary regimes, development agenda, and environmental cooperation, they can often operate where international institutional control is weak. In the 21st century, such regimes often draw on international non-government organizations and mobilize public and community support as part of their strategy. As such, a wide range of actors can ...


Toward A Knowledge Economy In Saudi Arabia, Giulio M. Gallarotti, Essam Elfalily, Osama Tayyeb Aug 2012

Toward A Knowledge Economy In Saudi Arabia, Giulio M. Gallarotti, Essam Elfalily, Osama Tayyeb

Giulio M Gallarotti

Nations that have sought to overcome the resource curse and other barriers to economic growth have for some time sought greater development through a number of strategies: from import substitution in the 1950s to current strategies based on microfinance and human-capabilities approaches. Needless to say, the international community is still searching for the elusive Holy Grail of the optimal development strategy. One strategy that is gaining greater attention and adherents is that of promoting a transition to a knowledge economy. This paper is about one such nation: Saudi Arabia. In analyzing the Kingdom’s quest for a knowledge economy, this ...

Saudi Arabia And The Use Of Soft Power, Giulio M. Gallarotti, Essam Elfalily, Osama Tayyeb Jul 2012

Saudi Arabia And The Use Of Soft Power, Giulio M. Gallarotti, Essam Elfalily, Osama Tayyeb

Giulio M Gallarotti

Present day events in the Middle East and North Africa have confronted Saudi Arabia with some of its greatest challenges as a nation. The political landscape has been transformed by popular movements for democratization (Arab Spring). The serious economic and political turbulence that confronts the region does not promise to ameliorate anytime soon. And in the greater sphere of global relations, Saudi Arabia faces a critical and uncertain future with the US disengaging from Iraq and the controversy over a nuclear Iran. Saudi Arabia’s domestic challenges have proved no less imposing. While common wisdom has harped on the abundance ...

A Picture Is Worth A Thousand Words: Building National Identity Through Art, Donna R. Hoffman, Alison D. Howard Apr 2012

A Picture Is Worth A Thousand Words: Building National Identity Through Art, Donna R. Hoffman, Alison D. Howard

Alison Dana Howard

The abstract principles of a republican form of government would be tested with the ratification of the Constitution. It would be challenging to not only establish a government that was unlike any other in the world, but to also construct for the public a shared identity and national narrative that would encompass the values and ideals of the newly formed Republic. Art is one form of communication that has the capacity to reflect social contexts. Edelman (1995, 6) believed art to be an “essential and fundamental element” in political ideas and action. We examine how the portraits, historical paintings, and ...

A Workable Moral Strategy For Achieving And Preserving World Peace: A Strategy That Can Create Over 500,000 American Jobs, Raymond Wilson Mar 2012

A Workable Moral Strategy For Achieving And Preserving World Peace: A Strategy That Can Create Over 500,000 American Jobs, Raymond Wilson

Raymond Wilson

Proposed here is a workable moral strategy that would solve many problems the world faces, including the war problem. This strategy is a comprehensive alternative approach to the most pressing domestic and foreign priorities of the world's nations. It is an alternative that creates advantages for the working people of the world and at the same time provides advantages to the social, industrial, financial, and defense complexes of world nations, and it does so without “damaging” such complexes.

Methods Of Analysis Of Illegal Immigration Into The United States, Vernon Briggs Mar 2012

Methods Of Analysis Of Illegal Immigration Into The United States, Vernon Briggs

Vernon M Briggs Jr

"A major barrier to the discussion of the scope and impact of illegal immigration on the American economy has been the inadequacy of existing data. Although data problems are not unique to this topic, the limited availability of macro-data on the size of the annual flows and of the accumulated stock of individuals as well as of micro-data on their influences on selected labor markets has been effectively used to forestall policy reform efforts."
