Violencia Urbana Y Participación Ciudadana, Fernando Barrientos Del Monte Jul 2002

Violencia Urbana Y Participación Ciudadana, Fernando Barrientos Del Monte

Fernando Barrientos Del Monte

En la Ciudad de México, el ascenso de la delincuencia y el temor al delito han originado en la ciudadanía formas defensivas diversas. Se emplean nuevas tecnologías en sofisticados y modernos sistemas de vigilancia como circuitos cerrados de video, sistemas satelitales, alarmas, etc. Empero, gran parte de la sociedad que se sirve de estos sistemas les atribuye un valor extra funcional, es decir, se crea una idea falsa de seguridad. A medida que se desarrolla este tipo de industria, la ciudadanía se expone a riesgos crecientes, pues para vulnerar tales sistemas, las redes delictivas se profesionalizan y se tornan cada ...


State Repression: Behind The Mask Of Democracy ..., Ashok Agrwaal May 2002

State Repression: Behind The Mask Of Democracy ..., Ashok Agrwaal

Ashok Agrwaal

There has never been a satisfactory solution to the problem of handling / controlling political power, albeit the liberal claim that theirs is the best of the possible solutions known to human history. Notwithstanding the rhetoric justifying the creation and evolution of the modern nation-state, which focuses on its potential – through the ‘Rule of Law’ – to be more just and egalitarian than any other system of organised political power, there is overwhelming empirical evidence to show that things have not changed very much. States continue to repress their citizens in all manner of ways. The difference being that, today, repression is ...


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 ...

The Rule Of Law: A Reassessment For The Twenty-First Century, Noel B. Reynolds Jan 2002

The Rule Of Law: A Reassessment For The Twenty-First Century, Noel B. Reynolds

Noel B Reynolds

This brief radio address attempts to explain the origins of American liberty and to assess its health at the beginning of the 21st century. The notion of rule of law and the emerging science of constitutionalism enabled America’s founding generation to establish a system of political liberty that continues to stand as a model for all human societies to pursue.

Explaining Seat Changes In The U.S. House Of Representatives, 1950-1998, Brian Newman, Charles Ostrom Dec 2001

Explaining Seat Changes In The U.S. House Of Representatives, 1950-1998, Brian Newman, Charles Ostrom

Brian Newman

Recent U.S. House elections have challenged existing models of congressional elections, raising the question of whether or not processes thought to govern previous elections are still at work. Taking Marra and Ostrom's (1989) model of congressional elections as representative of extant theoretical perspectives and testing it against recent elections, we find that the model fails. We augment Marra and Ostrom's model with new insights, constructing a model that explains elections from 1950 to 1998. We find that, although presidential approval ratings and major political events continue to drive congressional elections, the distribution of open seats must also ...


Bill Clinton’S Approval Ratings: The More Things Change, The More They Stay The Same, Brian Newman Dec 2001

Bill Clinton’S Approval Ratings: The More Things Change, The More They Stay The Same, Brian Newman

Brian Newman

Over the past three decades, political scientists have been developing general models of presidential approval ratings, seeking to determine the structure of aggregate approval. This endeavor has culminated in the broad claim that "peace, prosperity, and probity" drive the public's approval. The unprecedented events of the Clinton Presidency, especially his high approval during and after impeachment, present a strong challenge to this model. However, the existing model explains Clinton's approval remarkably well, suggesting that the public punished and rewarded him for the state of the economy, major political events, and his integrity. Passing this strong test constitutes considerable ...

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 ...
