Rising Scholar: A Tale Of Two Countries: Sez-Led Growth In India And China, Isabel Zhang Dec 2019

Rising Scholar: A Tale Of Two Countries: Sez-Led Growth In India And China, Isabel Zhang

International Social Science Review

Special Economic Zones (SEZs) played an instrumental role in China’s transformation from a closed, impoverished nation to a liberalized economic powerhouse in just forty years. This paper analyzes how developing countries can use SEZs for economic growth by comparing SEZ policies in China and India, as India also used their zones for investment attraction and technological innovation. The paper concludes that SEZ policies are most successful when used strategically to experiment reform measures for economic liberalization. Other factors important for SEZ success include setting up the right incentives for zone managers to achieve economic goals, granting autonomy for local ...

The 2001 Ecowas Supplementary Protocol On Democracy In Light Of Recent Developments In The Sub-Region Of Africa, Adeniyi S. Basiru, Mashud L.A. Salawu, Adewale Adepoju Dec 2019

The 2001 Ecowas Supplementary Protocol On Democracy In Light Of Recent Developments In The Sub-Region Of Africa, Adeniyi S. Basiru, Mashud L.A. Salawu, Adewale Adepoju

International Social Science Review

This article, sourcing data from documentary sources and adopting descriptive and historical methods of data analysis, examines the most comprehensive and ambitious of the West African statesmen’ attempts at regionalizing democracy—the 2001 Supplementary Protocol on Democracy and Good Governance. Specifically, it assesses member states’ performance with regard its provisions, in the light of contemporary realities. It argues that this framework and its precursors, when viewed against the background of their emergence, are another defensive strategy by West African leaders, in concert with the ‘development’ partners, to disguise the contradictions in the sub-region’s democratization process. It concludes that what ...


Party Loyalty And Committee Assignment In The U.S. House Of Representatives, Xiaoli Jin Dec 2019

Party Loyalty And Committee Assignment In The U.S. House Of Representatives, Xiaoli Jin

International Social Science Review

Congressional committees play a vital role in policy making in Washington, but the assignment criteria for committee positions is often opaque and hard to decipher. Political scientists widely claim that Congress members’ loyalty affects party leadership’s decisions in granting committee assignments. This paper tested this argument on the United States House of Representatives using select roll call vote data from the 103rd to 115th Congresses. The findings indicate that in general, loyalty affects Republicans more than it affects Democrats. This paper also finds that moderately loyal members fare as well as, if not slightly better than, highly ...


“A Splendid Delusion:” Reassessing Vaccination In England, 1796-1853, Kaitlyn Akel Dec 2019

“A Splendid Delusion:” Reassessing Vaccination In England, 1796-1853, Kaitlyn Akel

International Social Science Review

Often characterized as a ground-breaking and well-integrated innovation, the smallpox vaccine encountered popular apprehension and resistance at the turn of the nineteenth century. Prior contemporary accounts relegate the bulk of England’s vaccination resistance movement in this period to the late nineteenth century, ignoring vocalized resistances in the technology’s first few decades. Additionally, whatever discussion exists of vaccination in the early-nineteenth century is progressive in tone, praising Jenner for developing a technology that would later eradicate smallpox in 1980. Scientific publications and archived parliamentary debates of the early 1800s reveal a fragmented consensus concerning vaccination value.


Travel To Cuba: A Case Study Of Media Branding In A Politicized Context, Yaneisis Infante Dec 2019

Travel To Cuba: A Case Study Of Media Branding In A Politicized Context, Yaneisis Infante

Student Theses

The purpose of this research is to detail a case study of U.S. tourism to Cuba in a politicized context; specifically, to compare and contrast the Obama and Trump administrations. This study seeks to examine how the Cuban “brand” and the island’s overall tourism strategy is formulated, circulated, shaped and reshaped by various actors and the public in the changing context of the newly antagonistic bilateral U.S.-Cuba political relationship. The research questions explore issues of how diplomatic relations impact Cuban tourism and advertising messaging. This paper also discusses the changes in the U.S. news media ...

Democratic Innovations In North America, Christopher F. Karpowitz, Chad Raphael

Communication

This chapter assesses the state of democratic innovations in North America, including the United States, Canada, and English-speaking countries of the Caribbean. We begin by setting these innovations in the contexts of democracy on the continent, which includes both established democracies and countries that have only recently decolonised. We go on to discuss major trends in democratic innovations over the past two decades in North America, including referendums and initiatives, mini-publics and collaborative governance, and digital participation in political and civic life. We note the broad range of issues addressed by these innovations and their effects on democratic institutions at ...

Student Scholar Symposium Abstracts and Posters

In the past, people obtained their news from newspapers and by conversations with other people.

Media has great persuasive capacity, analysis has found that certain broadcast networks can influence voting patterns when introduced to Cable TV in areas where it was not broadcasted before. Research has shown that the daily news people receive has a persuasive role in an individual’s way of thinking and their personal fears. Media has a direct impact on how people react to ...

Cette intervention fait référence au paragraphe de la résolution19GA 2017/30 du Conseil International des Monuments et des Sites indiquant que « la 19° Assemblée générale de l’ICOMOS… salue l’adoption de l’accord de Paris et encourage tous les membres de l’ICOMOS à renforcer leurs efforts pour appuyer sa mise en œuvre et identifier les réponses qui s’appuient sur le patrimoine ou les paysages culturels… ».

The Making And Silencing Of “Axé-Ocracy” In Brazil: Black Women Writers’ Spiritual, Political And Literary Movement In São Paulo, Sarah S. Ohmer Oct 2019

The Making And Silencing Of “Axé-Ocracy” In Brazil: Black Women Writers’ Spiritual, Political And Literary Movement In São Paulo, Sarah S. Ohmer

Publications and Research

In this article, I will focus on two influential writers from the south of Brazil, Cristiane Sobral who currently lives in Brasília, from Rio de Janeiro, and Conceição Evaristo who currently lives in Rio de Janeiro state, from Minas Gerais. I got to know them in São Paulo in 2015 at a public event: the “Afroétnica Flink! Sampa Festival of Black Thought, Literature and Culture.” I will include references to some of their younger contemporaries such as Raquel Almeida, Jenyffer Nascimento, and Elizandra Souza, all of whom reside in São Paulo, in order to illustrate the Black Brazilian women writers ...


Working For The Worker? A Study Of The Union Générale Tunisienne Du Travail (Ugtt), Ava Erfani Oct 2019

Working For The Worker? A Study Of The Union Générale Tunisienne Du Travail (Ugtt), Ava Erfani

Independent Study Project (ISP) Collection

This study attempts to explore the nature of the Tunisian national trade union, the Union Générale Tunisienne du Travail (UGTT), as it operates in Tunisia today. This was achieved by conducting in-depth interviews with Tunisians living in the greater Tunis area in the fall of 2019. Through the lens of both those affiliated with the UGTT and those who have no ties to the organization, an image of the UGTT is able to be revealed as a conspicuous entity. Is its aim to hold power in government? Or rather stay outside of the sphere of national politics to effect change ...

Modern Intolerance And The Medieval Crusades [Excerpted From Whose Middle Ages?], Nicholas L. Paul

History

Whose Middle Ages? is an interdisciplinary collection of short, accessible essays intended for the non-specialist reader and ideal for teaching at an undergraduate level. Each of twenty-two essays takes up an area where humans have dug for meaning into the medieval past and brought something distorted back into the present: in our popular entertainment; in our news, our politics, and our propaganda; and in subtler ways that inform how we think about our histories, our countries, and ourselves. Each author teases out the stakes of a history that has refused to remain past and uses the tools of the academy ...
