U.S. State Government Economic And Social Performance: Unified Vs. Divided And Democrat Vs. Republican Controlled State Governments, Soo Sieber, Oded Izraeli Dec 2018

U.S. State Government Economic And Social Performance: Unified Vs. Divided And Democrat Vs. Republican Controlled State Governments, Soo Sieber, Oded Izraeli

International Social Science Review

This paper is looking for an empirical answer to the questions: Is a unified government’s performance superior to a divided government’s performance and is the performance of a unified government controlled by the Democratic Party superior to or inferior to the performance of a unified government under the control of the Republican Party? The evaluation of the performance of the government was done using two groups of variables, three economic variables, and three social variables. The empirical analyses of data from the contiguous U.S. states (1990-2014) suggest that the economic performance of states with a unified government ...


The Role Of African Culture In The Implementation Of The Un Convention On The Rights Of The Child: The Kenyan Experience, David Ngira Otieno Dec 2018

The Role Of African Culture In The Implementation Of The Un Convention On The Rights Of The Child: The Kenyan Experience, David Ngira Otieno

International Social Science Review

The issue of child vulnerability is a concern of many postcolonial African governments. The deplorable conditions under which orphans and other vulnerable children live compounds general family poverty in Sub-Saharan Africa. Governments and international bodies have passed laws to improve the situation of children. However, this paper will demonstrate, the status of children in Sub-Saharan Africa has continued to deteriorate, thus putting into question the effectiveness of these legislations. With a focus on Kenya, this study explores the possibility of a bottom-up integrated approach that is culturally sensitive in tackling the challenges facing children in Kenya.

The Relationship Between Gun Control Strictness And Mass Murder In The United States: A National Study 2009-2015, J. Scott Lewis Sep 2018

The Relationship Between Gun Control Strictness And Mass Murder In The United States: A National Study 2009-2015, J. Scott Lewis

International Social Science Review

This paper aimed to determine if there is association between the strictness of gun control in a given state and the number of mass murder incidents per state in the United States. Controlling for population, gun control strictness was a weak, negative predictor of mass murder incidents and number of victims when a gun was used as a primary weapon. To understand the phenomenon of mass murder fully, mental health practitioners, law enforcement, and policymakers must make a joint effort so as to facilitate prevention.


The Ties That Bind: How Domestic Politics Influence Ties With Extraterritorial Courts—A Study Of The Jcpc, Harold Young Sep 2018

The Ties That Bind: How Domestic Politics Influence Ties With Extraterritorial Courts—A Study Of The Jcpc, Harold Young

International Social Science Review

During the last half century, extraterritorial courts and the number of acceding states have markedly increased. It is important to better understand the relationships between the extraterritorial court and the state. This paper posits that the governments of those states will seek a change or disengage from the extraterritorial court if they perceive a disconnection between themselves and the extraterritorial court. The perception of such a disconnection is influenced by changes in the political environment that make the state more sensitive to decisions that are unfavorable to it. To test this theory, this paper examines the Judicial Committee of the ...
