Cultural Identity In The European Union: The Discovery Of A New Challenge, Marcello Bruni Dec 1994

Cultural Identity In The European Union: The Discovery Of A New Challenge, Marcello Bruni

Honors College Capstone Experience/Thesis Projects

Cultural identity represents the impending problem that must be overcome in the integration process of the European Union. The significance of the Maastricht Treaty is now embodied in its implementation from the European super-national level to the national one. In this regard, the citizens of each member state appear to be confronted by the bifurcating enigma posed by the European integration issue that challenges the psycho-sociological perception of nationhood. This paper emphasizes the configuration of a new European federative cultural identity which complements -- but does not substitute -- the primordial, or national, identification of each individual within the context of the ...


Comparative Democracy: The Economic Development Thesis, Ross E. Burkhart, Michael S. Lewis-Beck Dec 1994

Comparative Democracy: The Economic Development Thesis, Ross E. Burkhart, Michael S. Lewis-Beck

Department of Political Science Publications

In comparative politics, an established finding--that economic development fosters democratic performance--has recently come under challenge. We counter this challenge with a dynamic pooled time series analysis of a major, but neglected data set from 131 nations. The final generalized least squares-autoregressive moving averages estimates (N = 2,096) appear robust and indicate strong economic development effects, dependent in part on the nation's position in the world system. For the first time, rather hard evidence is offered on the causal relationship between economics and democracy. According to Granger tests, economic development "causes" democracy, but democracy does not "cause" economic development. Overall ...

How Radical Is Lani Guinier? , Michael E Lewyn Nov 1994

How Radical Is Lani Guinier? , Michael E Lewyn

Michael E Lewyn

In 1993, Lani Guinier was nominated to head the Justice Department's Civil Rights Division. Her nomination was withdrawn after she was accused of being too liberal, if not radical, on issues relating to voting rights law. This article discusses her views, and finds that her writings were not clear enough to either support or debunk the accusations of radicalism.

Francis Lieber’S Theory Of Institutional Liberty, Steven Samson Nov 1994

Francis Lieber’S Theory Of Institutional Liberty, Steven Samson

Faculty Publications and Presentations

Lieber argued that external liberty is an outgrowth of internal freedom. Real freedom is “perpetual, individual, and relates to the whole being.” Liberty is “granted, guaranteed, and, therefore, generally of a public character.” It is the political expression of this preexisting moral condition of the people. It is a practical result of flourishing institutions of self-government.


Entry: What Mama Never Told You About Being There, Kathrin S. Mautino Nov 1994

Entry: What Mama Never Told You About Being There, Kathrin S. Mautino

San Diego Law Review

This Article analyzes the development of entry as an immigration concept, with special attention to those factors that affect entry analysis. These elements that the author finds must be considered in every potential entry into the United States are: (1) the legal status of the alien, (2) the purpose for finding an entry, and (3) the congressional intent behind the statutes involved. This Article explores the legal history of the term "entry," and illustrates the interaction of the three factors above. The author concludes that entry analysis demonstrates the political nature of immigration and the frequency that historical events rather ...


Judicial Review Of Discretionary Immigration Decisionmaking, Michael G. Heyman Nov 1994

Judicial Review Of Discretionary Immigration Decisionmaking, Michael G. Heyman

San Diego Law Review

The Immigration and Nationality Act vests enormous discretion in the Attorney General and subordinates, such discretion exercised frequently at all levels of the immigration system. Despite this, though, judicial review of these decisions has followed a very uneven, troubled course. This Article explores the reasons for this, focusing first on the Administrative Procedure Act and the elusive meaning of discretion itself. The author demonstrates the "disintegration" of administrative law and what he sees as the failure of its general precepts to accommodate immigration issues. The Article traces the development of faulty doctrine through case law, resulting in a stunted judicial ...


Population, Immigration And Growth In California, Richard Sybert Nov 1994

Population, Immigration And Growth In California, Richard Sybert

San Diego Law Review

This Article presents objective data and analysis regarding the components of California's population growth. It also reviews fiscal impacts from immigration. The author finds that these fiscal impacts are substantially negative for state and local governments. The Article also examines United States workforce needs as they may be affected by an expanding population and as they may implicate immigration. The author recommends changing immigration policy to focus more on workforce needs and skills in California. He recommends federal action on two levels: (1) to compensate California for the hugely disproportionate financial burden it bears from the nation's immigration ...


By Hook Or By Cook: Exploring The Legality Of An Ins Sting Operation, Lenni B. Benson Nov 1994

By Hook Or By Cook: Exploring The Legality Of An Ins Sting Operation, Lenni B. Benson

San Diego Law Review

The Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS) is an agency with responsibility both for enforcing the immigration laws and conferring legal status and other benefits. This author finds that at times these dual roles create conflict, mistrust in the community, and violations of the rights of aliens. This Article critically examines an undercover operation conducted in 1993 by the San Diego District Office, which lured aliens to deportation through INS offers of legal status. The Article discusses the regulatory and statutory provisions governing INS undercover operations and the rights of aliens subject to final orders of deportation. It continues with an ...

How Can Taiwan Enter The United Nations? History, Issues, And Approaches, Vincent Wei-Cheng Wang Oct 1994

How Can Taiwan Enter The United Nations? History, Issues, And Approaches, Vincent Wei-Cheng Wang

Politics Faculty Publications and Presentations

This paper examines the history and issues related to, as well as offers some suggestions to, Taiwan's efforts to enter the United Nations. It first juxtaposes the UN's idealism (universal representation) with its realism (power politics) and reviews the evolution of the China representation issue in light of the changing politics in the United Nations. Then it tests Taiwan's statehood, which is requisite for UN membership, and discusses the domestic and international reasons for Taiwan's UN bid. In the final section, the paper demonstrates the prerequisites, models, and approaches for Taiwan's reentry into the United ...


Budget Policy And Fiscal Crisis: A Political Matrix, Francis J. Leazes Jr., Robert Sieczkiewicz Sep 1994

Budget Policy And Fiscal Crisis: A Political Matrix, Francis J. Leazes Jr., Robert Sieczkiewicz

New England Journal of Public Policy

A study of 134 Rhode Island programs, administered during the state's budget crisis in the fiscal years 1987 to 1991, yielded a number of important lessons. The more mandated formula spending there was in a budget, the more uncontrollable was the budget. There is a spending bias ingrained in the political culture. Some nonentitlement spending can be difficult to curtail. Cutback management strategies are inadequate to address significant revenue shortfalls. The authors present a political budget matrix designed to assist budget policymakers and staff in making educated assumptions about the way categories of programs may be treated during times ...

Thomas Hobbes's "A Discourse Of Laws", Noel B. Reynolds Sep 1994

Thomas Hobbes's "A Discourse Of Laws", Noel B. Reynolds

All Faculty Publications

The recent discovery that an anonymously published 1620 essay was an early writing of Thomas Hobbes invites investigation of his early thinking. Hobbes relied on mostly classical sources to advance a basically conventionalist theory of law and to anticipate twentieth century analyses of the principles of rule of law such as that made famous by F. A. Hayek.

A Study Of Japan's Foreign Policy Behavior: The Discrepancy Between Japan's Foreign Policy And Its Voting Behavior In The United Nations General Assembly, Atsuko Sato Aug 1994

A Study Of Japan's Foreign Policy Behavior: The Discrepancy Between Japan's Foreign Policy And Its Voting Behavior In The United Nations General Assembly, Atsuko Sato

Dissertations and Theses

Japan has maintained a low profile in its diplomacy since the end of World War II, relying heavily on the United States for its security and prosperity. The cold war structure allowed Japan to maintain its passive foreign policy behavior. By the end of 1980s, West-East confrontations largely ended and global issues such as arms control, environmental problem, human rights, economic development, and ethnic conflicts became the main international concerns. It was expected that in this changed world environment, Japan as an economic power, would take on a more active international role. Yet Japan has not shown any significant political ...

The Unprepossessing Mr. Ryan: Understanding Exemplary Legislative Leadership, Barbara A. K. Adams Aug 1994

The Unprepossessing Mr. Ryan: Understanding Exemplary Legislative Leadership, Barbara A. K. Adams

Dissertations

This study focuses on the character attributes, philosophy, political skills, policy agenda, and administrative activities of William A. Ryan, Speaker of the Michigan House of Representatives from 1969 through 1974 and a House member from 1958 through 1982. The case study is embedded in a history of Michigan’s political culture, which is characterized by moralistic and individualistic strands often in conflict with one another.

The research hypothesis was that administrative virtue in legislative leadership is best described in terms of utilitarian ethics, the ability to control and manage factionalism in the interest of incremental change. The rival hypothesis was ...


The Answering Machine Generation - Who Are They And What Problem Do They Pose For Survey Research, Robert W. Oldendick, Michael W. Link Jul 1994

The Answering Machine Generation - Who Are They And What Problem Do They Pose For Survey Research, Robert W. Oldendick, Michael W. Link

Faculty Publications

Increased incidence of telephone answering machines and the use of such devices to screen calls pose a potential threat to the representativeness of samples in telephone surveys. Using data from nine statewide surveys, this analysis examines the extent to which answering machines are used to screen calls and the demographic characteristics associated with answering machine use and call screening. Results show that at most two to three percent of households use answering machines to screen calls, and that such screening is more likely to take place in households with higher family incomes, outside rural areas, and which include individuals who ...


South Africa In Transition: The Influence Of The Political Personalities Of Nelson Mandela And F.W. De Klerk, Aubrey Immelman Jul 1994

South Africa In Transition: The Influence Of The Political Personalities Of Nelson Mandela And F.W. De Klerk, Aubrey Immelman

Psychology Faculty Publications

The purpose of this paper is to examine salient factors accounting for South Africa’s relatively peaceful transition from apartheid state to nonracial democracy, focusing on the political personalities of South African leaders P.W. Botha, F.W. de Klerk, and Nelson Mandela. Following a brief overview of situational variables, the paper describes the political personalities of Mandela and De Klerk as assessed by the Millon-Type Political Personality Checklist (MPPC). The study shows that one cannot fully account for political developments in South Africa’s transition without considering (a) the interaction between situational variables and the political personalities of Nelson ...
