Cleavages Of Political Values Among Generations In Brazil, Editor

International Bulletin of Political Psychology

This article was written by Professor of Psychology Fabián Echegaray, Professor of Sociology Paulo Krischke, and Director of Institutional Ethics Aluir Toso. All three researchers are at the Universidad Federal de Santa Cantarina. They posit and provide supporting theory and data that values which are postmaterialist (emphasizing psychological well-being and self-actualization) as opposed to materialist (emphasizing materialistic goods) are more likely to be displayed by younger than older Brazilians and by those with higher than lower social class.

Theory And Practice In The Career Of Fernando Henrique Cardoso: Part I, Editor Jul 1997

Theory And Practice In The Career Of Fernando Henrique Cardoso: Part I, Editor

International Bulletin of Political Psychology

Political psychologists often contemplate the significance of their research--theoretical, empirical--for the practice of politics. Too often, seemingly valuable research is ignored, discounted, misperceived, and misapplied by political practitioners. Yet occasionally researchers practice politics as well--not just the politics of everyday life--but the formal politics of local, regional, national, and international entities. In the United States, Woodrow Wilson, Eugene McCarthy, and even Newt Gingrich come immediately to mind. What will be the interaction of research and practice when both are developed and implemented by the same individual? Dr. Ted Goertzel of Rutgers University has written the following article concerning another researcher-practitioner--Fernando ...

Opening Attempt: North Korea And The Rajin-Sonbong Free Trade And Economic Zone, Marcus Noland Jan 1997

Opening Attempt: North Korea And The Rajin-Sonbong Free Trade And Economic Zone, Marcus Noland

Marcus Noland

In response to its economic crisis, North Korea has intensified efforts to attract investment to its Rajin-Sonbong Free Economic and Trade Zone. While this effort to promote the zone represents an important start, the zone clearly has a long way to go before it will be able to attract the type of investment envisioned by its supporters. Lack of infrastructure appears to be a severe impediment to the development of the zone. If the infrastructural hurdle is to be surmounted, it will likely to be due to Chinese interest in developing the zone for transshipment trade associated with the economic ...

How Can Taiwan Enter The United Nations?: Implications Of The Roc's Quest For International Recognition, Vincent Wei-Cheng Wang

Politics Faculty Publications and Presentations

Most existing literature on the issue of Taiwan's admittance into the United Nations (UN) focuses on why Taiwan should have a seat in the UN, by invoking the UN's principle of universality. This paper focuses on how: the strategies and approaches.1

The government of the Republic of China (ROC) on Taiwan has so far adopted an open-ended yet passive strategy. In 1993 it knocked on the UN's door for the first time since 1971, when the People's Republic of China (PRC) replaced it in the UN. Taiwan requested seven Central American states to ask the ...

Introduction To Part One, Sheila Carapico Jan 1997

Introduction To Part One, Sheila Carapico

Political Science Faculty Publications

The end of the Cold War brought with it a temporary euphoria about prospects for a worldwide "third wave" of democratization to sweep the globe. If civil society had triumphed in the former Soviet bloc, perhaps political liberalism would spread elsewhere. No sooner had the sweet taste of victory over communism subsided, however, than Western observers turned their attention to another, allegedly uniquely, antidemocratic current- Islam-whose civilizational values seem to clash with Western liberalism even more fundamentally than Marxism. Whereas people in other parts of the world crave civil society, so the argument goes, political openings in the Muslim world ...

Finally it points outthat any major trade confrontation between the two countries would have serious implicationsfor the territory. The article concludes by arguing ...
