“Aspectos Jurídicos Del Delito De Trata De Personas En Colombia: Aportes Desde El Derecho Internacional, Derecho Penal Y Las Organizaciones No Gubernamentales”, Andres Barreto, Beatriz Londoño, Antonio Varon, Andrea Mateus Dec 2009

“Aspectos Jurídicos Del Delito De Trata De Personas En Colombia: Aportes Desde El Derecho Internacional, Derecho Penal Y Las Organizaciones No Gubernamentales”, Andres Barreto, Beatriz Londoño, Antonio Varon, Andrea Mateus

Andres Barreto

La preocupación por el fenómeno de la trata de personas en el escenario internacional ha sido una constante para los Estados desde mediados del siglo XIX. En Colombia la legislación que condena el delito empezó su recorrido desde el Código Penal de 1980, en donde se castigaba con penas de prisión de 2 a 6 años a todo aquel que promoviere la entrada o salida del país de mujer o menor de edad para ejercer la prostitución. Sin embargo, la complejidad de las redes criminales de este crimen transnacional empezó a evidenciar que la trata no solo se cometía sobre ...

The Homo Floresiensis Controversy, Robert Cribb Dec 2009

The Homo Floresiensis Controversy, Robert Cribb

Robert Cribb

The 2004 announcement of the discovery of a new species of hominin in the form of sub-fossil remains from Liang Bua cave in Flores aroused immediate excitement and controversy. The discovery attracted sceptical attention from dissenting palaeontologists. The sometimes acrimonious debate addressed the relative importance of apparently archaic and apparently modern features of the remains.

Ideologia E Utopias Nas Mais Recentes Constituintes Brasileira E Portuguesa: Algumas Linhas De Leitura, Paulo Ferreira Da Cunha Nov 2009

Ideologia E Utopias Nas Mais Recentes Constituintes Brasileira E Portuguesa: Algumas Linhas De Leitura, Paulo Ferreira Da Cunha

Paulo Ferreira da Cunha

Based upon a political compromise, in which « democratic socialists » and « social democrats » were the main protagonists, the ideology of Portuguese Constitution of 1976 was discrete, subtle. And ulterior constitutional revisions confirmed that fondamental aspect. Of course, utopia was present. But, even more present was the « hope principle ». We believe that the Brazilean constituent assembly, with the original importance of popular contributions, also had hope principle’s decisive influence. But the dinamics of the constituent assembly moderated, since the very beggining, the verbal signs of less discret ideologies. Utopia, neverthless, is very present in the aim of the « Citizen Constitution » to ...


The Obama Administration's Challenges After The 'War On Science': Reforming Staffing Practices And Protecting Scientific Integrity In The Executive Branch, Justin Vaughn, José Villalobos Nov 2009

The Obama Administration's Challenges After The 'War On Science': Reforming Staffing Practices And Protecting Scientific Integrity In The Executive Branch, Justin Vaughn, José Villalobos

José D. Villalobos

In this article, we examine the difficult leadership position President Barack Obama inherited as he took office with respect to science and technology policy making and implementation, particularly following the Bush administration and years of the so-called "war on science." We contend that the Obama administration's challenge is not only to take substantive policy action, but also to reform certain administrative practices, particularly in light of the previous administration's practice of the politics of strategic vacancies, a managerial technique that rearranges an agency's ideological inclinations not through the usual forms of active politicization (i.e., by filling ...

Comprendiendo Al Estado: Los Aportes De Guillermo O´Donnell A Su Reconceptualización En América Latina, Augusto Reina, Pablo Bulcourf

Augusto Reina

La obra de Guillermo O´Donnell constituye uno de los aportes más difundidos en el campo de la ciencia política latinoamericana y argentina de los últimos 30 años. Tanto a nivel regional como a nivel mundial, los trabajos que mas notoriedad han alcanzado son aquellos que estudiaron el Estado, particularizado en el subgénero de los autoritarismos burocráticos. Este trabajo se centrara en estudiar el nudo argumentativo de sus trabajos principales Modernización y autoritarismo, El Estado burocrático autoritario, Estado y alianzas y otros artículos conexos a la temática que han servido de base a sus conceptualizaciones posteriores. El concepto de Estado ...


La Ciencia Política En América Latina, Fernando Barrientos Del Monte Nov 2009

La Ciencia Política En América Latina, Fernando Barrientos Del Monte

Fernando Barrientos Del Monte

En este ensayo se trata de elaborar un análisis de la Ciencia Política latinoamericana desde la perspectiva de la historia de la ciencia en su vertiente ecléctica. El desarrollo de la CP en América Latina ha estado determinada por dos factores, uno estructural y otro intelectual o académico. El primero es definido por las estructuras dedicadas a la disciplina o al estudio sistemático de los fenómenos políticos, mientras el segundo está relacionado con los paradigmas dominantes –no únicos- en el estudio de la política. En éste ensayo se identifican con fines analíticos tres periodos estructural-intelectuales de la Ciencia Política Latinoamericana ...


Learning Purposefully In Capacity Development: Why, What And When To Measure?, Alfredo Ortiz Aragón, Peter Taylor Nov 2009

Learning Purposefully In Capacity Development: Why, What And When To Measure?, Alfredo Ortiz Aragón, Peter Taylor

Alfredo Ortiz Aragón

Many capacity development (CD) programs and processes aim at long‐term sustainable change, which depends on seeing many smaller changes in at times almost invisible fields (rules, incentives, behaviours, power, coordination etc.). Yet, most evaluation processes of CD tend to focus on shortterm outputs focused on clearly visible changes. This opinion paper will offer some ideas on how to deal with this paradox, by examining how monitoring and evaluation (M&E) does, or could, make a difference to CD. It explores whether there is something different and unique about M&E of CD that isn’t addressed by predominant methods ...

De Nederlandse Coin Aanpak: Drie Jaar Uruzgan 2006-2009, George Dimitriu, Beatrice De Graaf

George Dimitriu

Zelden leidde militaire inzet tot zo veel discussie als de missie Task Force Uruzgan (TFU) in Afghanistan. Wat doen de Nederlandse troepen precies in Uruzgan? En hoe hebben ze de strategie de afgelopen twee jaar op het tactische en operationele niveau uitgewerkt en toegepast? Dit artikel behandelt de moeizame discussie over de missie van TFU. Vervolgens nemen de auteurs drie ISAF-operaties onder de loep. De meest complexe en cruciale fase van dergelijke operaties “de fase van consolidatie (hold)“ komt uitvoerig aan de orde. De auteurs bieden een kader om deze schakel in de uitvoering beter te begrijpen. Ze geven zo ...

Il replace le vote des Japonais dans une perspectives plus large de retour du Politique dans leur société ...


Szerződésértelmezés Hermeneutika És Jogpolitika Között. A Contra Proferentem Szabály [Contract Interpretation Between Hermeneutics And Policy: The Contra Proferentem Rule], Péter Cserne Oct 2009

Szerződésértelmezés Hermeneutika És Jogpolitika Között. A Contra Proferentem Szabály [Contract Interpretation Between Hermeneutics And Policy: The Contra Proferentem Rule], Péter Cserne

Péter Cserne

This paper discusses why contract interpretation is substantially different from the interpretation of literary works and illustrates the argument with the analysis of the contra proferentem rule. It is a substantially revised version of my ‘Policy considerations in contract interpretation: the contra proferentem rule from a comparative law and economics perspective’ (2009)

Marxismo E Elitismo: Dois Modelos Antagônicos De Análise Social?, Adriano Codato Oct 2009

Marxismo E Elitismo: Dois Modelos Antagônicos De Análise Social?, Adriano Codato

Adriano Codato

The purpose of this article is to contrapose the propositions on power, class and political domination presented by a particular interpretation of Marxism - structuralist Marxism - through a critical dialogue with one of its most paradigmatic authors: Nicos Poulantzas. The article states, against Poulantzas suggestions, that the insertion of the concept of "élite" in theoretical Marxism may produce positive effects on it, specially making the classist analysis of politics scientifically manageable.


Revisitando A Teoria Geral Dos Partidos De Maurice Duverger, Paulo S. Peres Oct 2009

Revisitando A Teoria Geral Dos Partidos De Maurice Duverger, Paulo S. Peres

Paulo S. Peres

Em 1951, Maurice Duverger publicou Les Partis Politiques, livro que viria a ser considerado uma das principais contribuições originais aos estudos do fenômeno político-partidário. Mas, a despeito da indiscutível importância de sua teoria sobre os partidos e os sistemas partidários, uma questão crucial a ser considerada é a de saber em que medida o modelo de análise organizacional dos partidos desenhado pelo autor ainda seria aplicável aos estudos atuais. Neste artigo, defendo a posição de que a obra de Duverger (1951) continua sendo referência indispensável do ponto de vista do desenvolvimento histórico dessa linha de investigação e, consequentemente, seu estudo ...


Youth Restiveness And Violence In Nigeria: A Case Study Of Youth Unrest In Ebiraland, Marietu S. Tenuche Oct 2009

Youth Restiveness And Violence In Nigeria: A Case Study Of Youth Unrest In Ebiraland, Marietu S. Tenuche

Marietu S Tenuche (PhD)

The youth in Nigeria are involved and in most cases are in the vanguard of violent conflicts that have occurred in different parts of the country. The study specifically examined the role of the youth in the intermittent bursts of violent that erupts in Ebira land North Central Nigeria. The study suggested possible remedies of this growing tendency. This descriptive research was carried out essentially through an analysis of relevant texts, documents and Research and Government Reports on the subject matter. The position in the study was that the abrogation of the traditional authority of the Clans as an instrument ...


Repression And Punishment In North Korea: Survey Evidence Of Prison Camp Experiences, Marcus Noland Oct 2009

Repression And Punishment In North Korea: Survey Evidence Of Prison Camp Experiences, Marcus Noland

Marcus Noland

The penal system has played a central role in the North Korean government's response to the country's profound economic and social changes. Two refugee surveys--one conducted in China, one in South Korea--document its changing role. The regime disproportionately targets politically suspect groups, particularly those involved in market-oriented economic activities. Levels of violence and deprivation do not appear to differ substantially between the infamous political prison camps, penitentiaries for felons, and labor camps used to incarcerate individuals for misdemeanors, including economic crimes. Substantial numbers of those incarcerated report experiencing deprivation with respect to food as well as public executions ...


The Politics Of Patents And Drugs In Brazil And Mexico: The Industrial Bases Of Health Policies, Kenneth C. Shadlen Sep 2009

The Politics Of Patents And Drugs In Brazil And Mexico: The Industrial Bases Of Health Policies, Kenneth C. Shadlen

Ken Shadlen

After introducing pharmaceutical patents in the 1990s, Brazil subsequently adjusted the patent system to ameliorate its effects on drug prices while Mexico introduced measures that reinforce and intensify these effects. The different trajectories are due to the nature of the actors pushing for reform and subsequent patterns of coalitional formation and political mobilization. In Brazil, government demand for expensive, patented drugs made health-oriented patent reform a priority, and the existence of an autonomous local pharmaceutical sector allowed the Ministry of Health to build a supportive coalition. In Mexico, government demand made reforms less urgent, and transformations of the pharmaceutical sector ...
