How Neoliberalism Weakened Democracy In Chile, Brandon Greene Jan 2017

How Neoliberalism Weakened Democracy In Chile, Brandon Greene

Phillips Memorial Library Undergraduate Craft of Research Prize

During the late twentieth century, neoliberal policy transformations were occurring in countries all over the world. In Chile, this radical change in policy removed the state from many economic spheres, which ended up hurting the Chilean people. The newly enacted neoliberal policies left the Chilean citizens in an even worse position than they had been in originally, and this suffering eroded any possibility they had of democratically participating in their government. Since the state was removing regulations with the aim of stimulating economic growth, workers were no longer promised a livable wage and they lost their opportunities to live in ...

Neocolonialism, Liberation Theology And The Nicaraguan Revolution, John Hindley Apr 2015

Neocolonialism, Liberation Theology And The Nicaraguan Revolution, John Hindley

Phillips Memorial Library Undergraduate Craft of Research Prize

This paper will attempt to answer an important question regarding the study of revolutions in developing countries: how does Liberation Theology address the problems of neocolonialism that plagues the Latin American continent? The analysis will use the Central American nation, Nicaragua, and its Sandinista revolution as a country case. This question is important to the study because it helps to understand the extent or the kind of an impact religion has on revolutions. In Latin America, the population is majority Roman Catholic. Due to this, the hierarchy of the Church and the laity has had a certain influence on the ...


France And The Community Of Six: The Schuman Declaration To The Treaties Of Rome, Daniel Gagnon Apr 2015

France And The Community Of Six: The Schuman Declaration To The Treaties Of Rome, Daniel Gagnon

Phillips Memorial Library Undergraduate Craft of Research Prize

This paper investigates France’s role during the first decade of European integration, and in particular the initiatives of Jean Monnet and Robert Schuman which led to the creation of the European Communities. Monnet and Schuman began the modern process of uniting Europe with the creation of the European Coal and Steel Community, but the process of integration faced its strongest opposition within France itself and the movement had its first setback in 1954 when the French National Assembly rejected the proposed European Defense Community. Nevertheless, European integration continued, and after the subsequent French election, France rebuilt momentum for further ...

The Rise Of Religious Parties In Turkey And India, Hannah Donovan Apr 2013

The Rise Of Religious Parties In Turkey And India, Hannah Donovan

Annual Celebration of Student Scholarship and Creativity

This project examines the rise of religious parties in secular democracies. In both Turkey and India, religious parties have enjoyed electoral successes (and failures). While religion is a significant issue to voters, it is oftentimes the persistence of economic problems that leads to the rise and fall of religious parties. The impact of coalition governments, change in political rhetoric, and relationship between government and religion in both countries are also analyzed and contrasted.

Both perspectives of international relations have significant implications for the effectiveness of this UN Tribunal and whether or not such supra-national institutions are ultimately effective ...

Global Studies Student Papers

This literature review and thesis examine two main issues, one on grassroots and community organizing and the other discussing the implications of environmental racism.

Through a review of literature on both community/grassroots organizing and the prevalence of environmental racism within the United States, along with experiential findings through a community partnership, the issues of remedying environmental racism and the effectiveness of the remedies are explored. Environmental racism is ...
