The First Lady As Formal Advisor To The President: When East (Wing) Meets West (Wing), Maryanne Borrelli Dec 2001

The First Lady As Formal Advisor To The President: When East (Wing) Meets West (Wing), Maryanne Borrelli

Government and International Relations Faculty Publications

Drawing on archival research, this article examines how the position of the first lady has been formally defined, and how that definition has affected presidential advising by first ladies. Three first ladies-Eleanor Roosevelt, Rosalynn Carter, and Hillary Rodham Clinton-have served in a formal capacity within the executive branch. In each instance, the first lady's appointment, and subsequent exercise of formal and informal power, carried significant implications for our understanding of this position, the presidency, and the political system.


Managing Landmine Casualty Data, Cisr Jmu Dec 2001

Managing Landmine Casualty Data, Cisr Jmu

CISR Studies and Reports

The Mine Action Information Center (MAIC) at James Madison University implemented this project to develop a framework for the systematic collection and management of landmine casualty data. The project was premised on the lack of an adequate system for collecting and managing landmine casualty data on a global basis. Data on landmine and UXO casualties is being collected in a systematic manner in some countries, but worldwide, it is not being collected in a comprehensive or consistent manner that allows it to be compared cross-nationally and aggregated globally. The lack of an adequate system hampers the ability of mine action ...

The National Domestic Workers Union And The War On Poverty, Elizabeth Beck Dec 2001

The National Domestic Workers Union And The War On Poverty, Elizabeth Beck

The Journal of Sociology & Social Welfare

This article explores values, strategies, and tensions found within the War on Poverty and examines a War on Poverty-supported initiative, the National Domestic Workers Union (NDWU). The article makes the argument that the NDWU is illustrative of the War on Poverty in that each held structurally based descriptions of poverty and individually based prescriptions. The article explores the relationship of domestic service to the institutions of racism, classism, and sexism and how the ND WU strategies of training, service, and, advocacy-like those of the War on Poverty-sought to address the needs of individual domestic workers while circumventing larger and more ...


Expenditure Control And Traditional Budgets: Comparing Two Implementations, Angela Lauria Gunnink Dec 2001

Expenditure Control And Traditional Budgets: Comparing Two Implementations, Angela Lauria Gunnink

Master's Theses

My research will entail examining the budget processes of Kalamazoo, Michigan, and Fairfield, California. The difference between these two cities and their budgets is that Fairfield implemented an expenditure control budget, and Kalamazoo operates with a traditional budget. The purpose of this Master’s Thesis is to compare and contrast Fairfield's performance with their expenditure control budget to Kalamazoo, a city of approximately the same size in terms of population, square mileage, and local governance as Fairfield, but operates with a traditional city budget.

This study revisits the empirical claims made by Osborne and Gaebler (1992), which illustrates Fairfield ...


First And Second Generations Of Urban Black Mayors: Atlanta, Detroit, And St. Louis, Harold Eugene Core Jr. Dec 2001

First And Second Generations Of Urban Black Mayors: Atlanta, Detroit, And St. Louis, Harold Eugene Core Jr.

Master's Theses

This research attempts to create an understanding of generationality as it applies to successive black mayors in the urban setting. At a glance, the first black mayors of Atlanta, Detroit, and St. Louis received criticism for being anti-white and using racial conflict to accomplish their goals of diversifying the decision-making elites in each city. The black mayors immediately following in each city were criticized in the black community as being too accommodating to white interests as they attempted to find racial balance in the decision-making elite.

This research uses literature to establish the nature of early black mayors as believing ...

中國自由貿易區的構想 : Wto 框架下中國大陸與港、澳、台經貿關係展望, 遲福林 Nov 2001

中國自由貿易區的構想 : Wto 框架下中國大陸與港、澳、台經貿關係展望, 遲福林

CAPS Working Paper Series

祖國大陸和臺灣相繼加入WTO ,加上中國單獨關稅區的香港、澳門, WTO 就有四個中國會員。由于中國的特殊情況,兩岸入世使祖國大陸、臺灣、香港和澳門四地之間的經貿關係將逐步發生重大變化。這需要我們面對現實,從長計議,客觀地探討WTO 框架下兩岸四地經貿關係的走勢,並由此作出基本判斷。

基于上述考慮, 這裏提出這樣一個初步設想: 建立“中國自由貿易區"。”中國自由貿易區"的主要內涵是,在“兩岸四地" 逐漸建立起一種要素無障礙流動的自由貿易的關係,它比一般WTO 成員之間貿易互惠更進一步,將具體體現 ”兩岸四地” 之間一個國家幾個關稅區的特殊關係。


Economic Reforms And Growth Prospects In India, Lawrence, R. Klein, Thangavel Palanivel Nov 2001

Economic Reforms And Growth Prospects In India, Lawrence, R. Klein, Thangavel Palanivel

CAPS Working Paper Series

Starting in June 1991, the Indian government introduced a number of liberalising measures, including significant tariff reduction, abolition of all quantitative restrictions on non-consumer goods, unification of the exchange rates, and adoption of a liberal set of rules for FDI, and introduction of current account convertibility. While the industrial reforms seek to bring about a greater competitive domestic environment, the trade reforms seek to improve international competitiveness. The private sector is allowed in many industries that were earlier exclusively reserved for the public sector. In these areas, the public sector will have to compete with the private sector, even though ...

“ Do The Attitudes Of Policy Implementers Affect The Implementation Of The Community Service Policy At A Southern Illinois County Housing Authority?” A Case Study, Bernadette Zayas Lorenzo

Capstone Projects – Politics and Government

According to Section 512 of the Quality and Work Responsibility Act of 1998, “every adult resident of public housing will be required to perform eight hours of community service each month, or participate in a self-sufficiency program for at least eight hours every month. This requirement does not apply to elderly persons, disabled persons, persons already working, persons exempted from work requirements under State welfare to work programs, or programs receiving assistance under a State program that have not been found to be in non-compliance with such a program” (Hunt, Schulhof, Holmquist, 1998: 5). This community service work is not ...
