Should We Press The Victims: The Uneven Support For International Criminal Tribunals, Michael D. Thurston 2010 Georgia State University

Should We Press The Victims: The Uneven Support For International Criminal Tribunals, Michael D. Thurston

Political Science Theses

International criminal tribunals rely on international support. However, in the case of the ICTY and the ICTR, international support has been uneven. I argue that this uneven support is related to the post-atrocity status of the domestic governing authority. In cases where the governing authority retains the status of victim, as in Rwanda following the 1994 Tutsi genocide, the international community has been reluctant to back the ICTR in its attempts to prosecute all participants of the 1994 genocide.

Communication Between Members Of Parliament And Their Constituents, Lauren Groeper, Andrea Bunting, Emilie Lee

G. R. Boynton's New Media and Politics

Recently, new forms of communication in institutional relations have begun to be used more often and taken more seriously. In the past, members of Parliament and other professional organizations would never use social media such as Twitter or Facebook, to reach their supporters because it was viewed as unprofessional and silly. Most institutions used TV, newspapers, and magazines. However, in the past few years professional groups have tried to reach their supporters on a new, more personal dimension. Instead of standard broadcast messages that have come across as uncivil or robotic, institutions have begun to use Twitter, Facebook and MySpace ...

(Not So) Special Relationships, Dylan Kissane

Dylan Kissane

Do the English speaking countries have a special relationship? If one English speaking country becomes involved in a war do others rush to assist them? What explains why English speaking countries sometimes stand as one but other times stand alone? This presentation takes the 20th century as a case study of Anglophone (non)cooperation and explains why national interests will always override international friendship.


Regime Completeness And Conflict: A Closer Look At Anocratic Political Systems, Matthew J. Schipani 2010 Georgia State University

Regime Completeness And Conflict: A Closer Look At Anocratic Political Systems, Matthew J. Schipani

Political Science Theses

Mixed regimes are often viewed as inherently less stable and more war prone than fully democratic or autocratic systems due to their low levels of institutionalization. I ask, are certain mixed regimes more or less war prone than other mixed regimes, based on the strength and orientation (more democratic or autocratic) of their political institutions? At ends with previous research, my findings suggest that institutionalization levels play little, if any role in the onset of interstate war.
