Policy Point-Counterpoint: The Good And The Bad Of The Social Media Revolution, J. Scott Lewis, Jesse Goranson, Lawrence Kastriba Apr 2019

Policy Point-Counterpoint: The Good And The Bad Of The Social Media Revolution, J. Scott Lewis, Jesse Goranson, Lawrence Kastriba

International Social Science Review

In this policy point-counterpoint, sociology students Jesse Goranson and Lawrence Kastriba discuss whether social media operates as a positive social force or as a negative one. Jesse Goranson argues that social media can act to promote democratization among otherwise disadvantaged groups. By connecting individuals from disadvantaged groups, the scalability of social media increases the social capital of the group members, thus giving the group a greater voice in society and allows them greater participation in the political process.

The Defense Industrial Base: How Idiosyncratic And Historical Influences Dictate Its Future, Henry Walter Apr 2019

The Defense Industrial Base: How Idiosyncratic And Historical Influences Dictate Its Future, Henry Walter

International Social Science Review

The Defense Industrial Base is the river from which American military dominance flows. However, the Industrial Base is just as—if not more—vulnerable to floods and droughts as a typical industry. Tracing the sector’s historical and economic foundations helps illuminate existing gaps and strengths that can present strategic challenges and benefits. This paper aims to connect those trends to existing and future capabilities. Although the Industrial Base will take time to fill the demands of the new $700-plus billion defense budget, the more concerning strategic issues are that the budget, and subsequently, the Industrial Base are leaving a ...


People Smuggling In Afghanistan And Niger: Iatrogenesis And Europe’S “Migration Crisis”, Sydney Chuen Apr 2019

People Smuggling In Afghanistan And Niger: Iatrogenesis And Europe’S “Migration Crisis”, Sydney Chuen

International Social Science Review

This paper highlights Nimruz, Afghanistan and Agadez, Niger, which are people smuggling hubs that have both been influenced by the annual influx of hundreds of thousands of migrants on their journeys to Europe. Their growing regional prominence alludes to smugglers’ innovative capacity in response to a corrosive neo-imperialist environment that is exacerbated by Europe’s recent protectionist immigration policies. Nimruz and Agadez are compared as starting points for parallel migratory flows to Europe. They are case studies in terms of the business of people smuggling including economic dependency and its exigencies, the constant prevalence of terrorism in both areas which ...


Vagrancy, Vice, And Victimhood: The Evolution Of Homeless Persecution, Anthony Hackett Apr 2019

Vagrancy, Vice, And Victimhood: The Evolution Of Homeless Persecution, Anthony Hackett

International Social Science Review

Through the examination of how urban space is constructed, one can see how the city testifies to the ways that history and memory come to shape human experience and the vocabularies with which it is understood and remembered. This paper will diverge from contemporary discussions of history and memory through an investigation of the roles of affect and social location have in shaping how the city is thought of and remembered differently. It will compare historical constructions of city folk in an attempt to understand the role of hegemonic social, economic, and political conditions in the construction of “history.” This ...
