The 2001 Ecowas Supplementary Protocol On Democracy In Light Of Recent Developments In The Sub-Region Of Africa, Adeniyi S. Basiru, Mashud L.A. Salawu, Adewale Adepoju Dec 2019

The 2001 Ecowas Supplementary Protocol On Democracy In Light Of Recent Developments In The Sub-Region Of Africa, Adeniyi S. Basiru, Mashud L.A. Salawu, Adewale Adepoju

International Social Science Review

This article, sourcing data from documentary sources and adopting descriptive and historical methods of data analysis, examines the most comprehensive and ambitious of the West African statesmen’ attempts at regionalizing democracy—the 2001 Supplementary Protocol on Democracy and Good Governance. Specifically, it assesses member states’ performance with regard its provisions, in the light of contemporary realities. It argues that this framework and its precursors, when viewed against the background of their emergence, are another defensive strategy by West African leaders, in concert with the ‘development’ partners, to disguise the contradictions in the sub-region’s democratization process. It concludes that what ...


Party Loyalty And Committee Assignment In The U.S. House Of Representatives, Xiaoli Jin Dec 2019

Party Loyalty And Committee Assignment In The U.S. House Of Representatives, Xiaoli Jin

International Social Science Review

Congressional committees play a vital role in policy making in Washington, but the assignment criteria for committee positions is often opaque and hard to decipher. Political scientists widely claim that Congress members’ loyalty affects party leadership’s decisions in granting committee assignments. This paper tested this argument on the United States House of Representatives using select roll call vote data from the 103rd to 115th Congresses. The findings indicate that in general, loyalty affects Republicans more than it affects Democrats. This paper also finds that moderately loyal members fare as well as, if not slightly better than, highly ...


“A Splendid Delusion:” Reassessing Vaccination In England, 1796-1853, Kaitlyn Akel Dec 2019

“A Splendid Delusion:” Reassessing Vaccination In England, 1796-1853, Kaitlyn Akel

International Social Science Review

Often characterized as a ground-breaking and well-integrated innovation, the smallpox vaccine encountered popular apprehension and resistance at the turn of the nineteenth century. Prior contemporary accounts relegate the bulk of England’s vaccination resistance movement in this period to the late nineteenth century, ignoring vocalized resistances in the technology’s first few decades. Additionally, whatever discussion exists of vaccination in the early-nineteenth century is progressive in tone, praising Jenner for developing a technology that would later eradicate smallpox in 1980. Scientific publications and archived parliamentary debates of the early 1800s reveal a fragmented consensus concerning vaccination value.


An Ancient Elixir: Beer In Sumer, Jared Kelly Dec 2019

An Ancient Elixir: Beer In Sumer, Jared Kelly

International Social Science Review

Alcoholic beverages have had an extensive impact on the earliest human societies. Scholars have argued that the desire to reap the health and social benefits associated with alcohol was a precursor to the Neolithic revolution and led individuals to abandon a nomadic lifestyle and develop agrarian economies. Fermented beverages developed convergently across the world at similar timeframe. In these societies’ alcohol played an important role in the business, social, and spiritual worlds. This article aims to look at the importance and the role that beer played in ancient Sumer. In addition, this article looks at the geography of beer; as ...

Extended Commentary: Administrative Failures: The Immigration Detention Centers And Abu Ghraib Prison, Allison G.S. Knox Sep 2019

Extended Commentary: Administrative Failures: The Immigration Detention Centers And Abu Ghraib Prison, Allison G.S. Knox

International Social Science Review

The Trump Administration’s immigration policy regarding the separation of families at the border has horrified Americans. Numerous reports have also been published to argue that the detention centers are mismanaged with allegations of potential human rights abuses taking place. The issues surrounding the detention centers are similar to another scandal Americans have already seen: the human rights abuses that took place in Iraq at the Abu Ghraib Prison. At the core of this issue is likely an administrative failure following the ill-fated policy that many say is immoral and unjust.
