Argentina's 2001 Default: Foreign Policy Considerations And Consequences, Joshua K. Alley May 2014

Argentina's 2001 Default: Foreign Policy Considerations And Consequences, Joshua K. Alley

Celebration

Argentina’s 2001 default was at the time the largest in history, with the Peronist government of Adolfo Rodriguez Saa declaring a cessation of payments on over 80 billion dollars in government bonds. Historically, the political science and economics literatures have emphasized the economic considerations surrounding the decision to default. Recent literature has explored the political motivations for default, but there has been little scholarship on the possible political consequences of default. Some authors have emphasized that default can have important audience costs for leaders, but other issues have been left unexplored. However, it is clear that Argentina’s 2001 ...


China And The Two Koreas: A New Era For The Rising Hegemon, Byeongho Mun Apr 2014

China And The Two Koreas: A New Era For The Rising Hegemon, Byeongho Mun

Undergraduate Research Symposium

Recently, the U.S. moved its pivot from the Middle East to East Asia. It was a belated reaction to deal with the new world order. China is rising as the sole competitor of the U.S. in world politics, and trying to consolidate its influence on the region.

What Happens When You Throw The World’S Biggest Party: The Political Impact Of Hosting Fifa’S World Cup, Branden A. Green Jan 2014

What Happens When You Throw The World’S Biggest Party: The Political Impact Of Hosting Fifa’S World Cup, Branden A. Green

Phi Kappa Phi Research Symposium

This research effort is a comparative study on the political impact on host countries holding the World Cup. Specifically, are the impacts different for a developed country compared to a developing country? The two countries that I will use as case studies are Germany (host of the 2006 World Cup) and South Africa (host of 2010 World Cup). Such cases offer excellent insight into the immense amount of political power associated with the World Cup -- especially the preceding year of the tournament due to the host country being under a proverbial microscope. A survey of FIFA officials will form the ...
