Voices In The Beyond: Judicial Psychology And Citizens United, Kirby Farrell Dec 2012

Voices In The Beyond: Judicial Psychology And Citizens United, Kirby Farrell

kirby farrell

Abstract: A psychological analysis of the Supreme Court’s controversial Citizens United decision finds the concept of agency or personhood conflicted in its use by the majority. Some conservative justices in this and some other decisions, including Voting Rights enforcement (2006) and death penalty jurisprudence, have positioned authority and the voices of affected “persons” in the beyond: that is, in an abstract or metaphysical zone wherein reasoning cannot follow or be held responsible.

Analyzing The Determinants Of Group Identity Among Alevis In Turkey: A National Survey Study, Cigdem V. Sirin Dec 2012

Analyzing The Determinants Of Group Identity Among Alevis In Turkey: A National Survey Study, Cigdem V. Sirin

Cigdem V. Sirin

This study systematically explores the factors that affect collective identity associations within the Alevi community in Turkey by employing the social identity approach and examining survey data collected through fieldwork. The results show that Kurdish Alevis express lower levels of attachment to their religious identity as compared to Turkish Alevis. The results also indicate that personal experiences of discrimination tend to increase one's prioritization of Alevi identity. Last, no significant differences are observed regarding group identity between Alevis who reside in urban areas and those who live in rural areas.

Deterring The ‘Boat People’: Explaining The Australian Government's People Swap Response To Asylum Seekers, Jaffa Mckenzie, Reza Hasmath Dec 2012

Deterring The ‘Boat People’: Explaining The Australian Government's People Swap Response To Asylum Seekers, Jaffa Mckenzie, Reza Hasmath

Reza Hasmath

This article examines why Australia has taken a tough stance on ‘boat people’, through an analysis of the Malaysian People Swap response. The findings support the view that Australia’s asylum seeker policy agenda is driven by populism, wedge politics and a culture of control. The article further argues that these political pressures, in sum, hold numerous negative implications for the tone of Australia’s political debate, the quality of policy formulation, as well as for asylum seekers and refugees themselves.


Between Statecraft And Humanism: Diplomacy And Its Forms Of Knowledge, Costas M. Constantinou Dec 2012

Between Statecraft And Humanism: Diplomacy And Its Forms Of Knowledge, Costas M. Constantinou

Costas M. Constantinou

Diplomacy is concomitant with humanity’s highest hopes and deepest
frustrations. Complex global problems demandbut might not receive
deep understanding, skilled advocacy, and sustained negotiation and
innovation. Diplomatic method, this article argues, emerges by combining
advocacy and reflexivity, and in modernity as dialectic between
statecraft and humanism. Statecraft is currently dominant, but humanist
aspirations remain pertinent, if often repressed. By examining the issue
of diplomatic knowledge in functional and historical contextsand crucially
by looking at it beyond information and intelligence gathering
the article examines how humanism becomes a usable praxis in diplomacy.
Specifically, how humanist praxis aspires to ...


New Middle East, New Insecurities And The Limits Of Liberation Geography, Peter J. Burgess, Costas M. Constantinou Dec 2012

New Middle East, New Insecurities And The Limits Of Liberation Geography, Peter J. Burgess, Costas M. Constantinou

Costas M. Constantinou

 The recent uprisings in the Middle East have highlighted – once again and in dramatic fashion – the
confluence of understandings of security, representations of danger and practices of legitimation
that shape our variegated geopolitical landscape. The political landscape of the Middle East is
changing, and with it many of the rote certainties about how things are done or ought to be done in
 and with  the region. Local regimes of power can no longer justify to national constituencies and
international audiences the necessity of autocratic rule, states of emergency and suspension of
rights. ‘The West’ confronts the hypocrisies and moral discounts ...


Informing Lone-Offender Investigations, Randy Borum Dec 2012

Informing Lone-Offender Investigations, Randy Borum

Randy Borum

This article examines the current research on targeted violence by lone offenders to inform intelligence and criminal investigations. It begins by analyzing the definitions and nature of lone offender attacks, discusses the role of "radicalization," and the ways in which mental illnesses may or may not be relevant.

China’S Rise In A Changing Regional Hierarchy: A Comparison Of 21st Century China To 20th Century Germany, Thomas J. Nisley Dec 2012

China’S Rise In A Changing Regional Hierarchy: A Comparison Of 21st Century China To 20th Century Germany, Thomas J. Nisley

Thomas Nisley

This article compares China’s rise in Asia today with Germany’s rise in Europe in the early twentieth century. In both cases, the regional hierarchy exhibited rapid change and a power transition, with Germany surpassing Great Britain and China surpassing Japan. To understand the implications and the consequences of the changing relative power hierarchy, I examine both cases through the lens of the Power Transition Theory. With an understanding of the possible outcomes of a regional power transition, this study engages a debate as to the correct direction of U.S. foreign policy. I argue that the United States ...


Slaves To Contradictions: 13 Myths That Sustained Slavery, Wilson Huhn Dec 2012

Slaves To Contradictions: 13 Myths That Sustained Slavery, Wilson Huhn

Wilson R. Huhn

People have a fundamental need to think of themselves as “good people.” To achieve this we tell each other stories – we create myths – about ourselves and our society. These myths may be true or they may be false. The more discordant a myth is with reality, the more difficult it is to convince people to embrace it. In such cases to sustain the illusion of truth it may be necessary to develop an entire mythology – an integrated web of mutually supporting stories. This paper explores the system of myths that sustained the institution of slavery in the antebellum United States.

Taking The High Ground: Fema Trailer Siting After Hurricane Katrina, Daniel P. Aldrich, Kevin Crook Dec 2012

Taking The High Ground: Fema Trailer Siting After Hurricane Katrina, Daniel P. Aldrich, Kevin Crook

Daniel P Aldrich

Using data on more than 300 census blocks from across New Orleans, Louisiana, this article investigates two steps in the placement of temporary housing after Hurricane Katrina. First, the authors seek to understand the factors that determined whether census blocks were selected for Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) trailers. Then, in light of the widespread resistance to the trailers, they focus on variables that influenced whether trailers were successfully placed on those sites. Despite past research arguing that race, collective action potential, and political factors are the primary determinants of facility placement and the success or failure of the attempt ...

The Storyteller: Observations On Murtada Bulbul’S ‘Swineherders’, Sharon Sliwinski Dec 2012

The Storyteller: Observations On Murtada Bulbul’S ‘Swineherders’, Sharon Sliwinski

Sharon Sliwinski

This review engages Murtada Bulbul's series of photographs of Bangladeshi swineherders (published in this issue), casting the photographer's treatment as that of a storyteller. On one hand, this treatment suggests the importance of visual-cultural forms for the very legibility of human rights. On the other hand, Bulbul's pictures can teach us something about what it means to live a "bare life," that is, to live at the edges of the human community.
