The State-In-Society Approach To Democratization With Examples From Japan, Mary Alice Haddad 2010 Wesleyan University

The State-In-Society Approach To Democratization With Examples From Japan, Mary Alice Haddad

Mary Alice Haddad

How does an undemocratic country create democratic institutions and transform its polity in such a way that democratic values and practices become integral parts of its political culture? This article uses the case of Japan to advocate for a new theoretical approach to the study of democratization. In particular, it examines how theoretical models based on the European and North American experiences have difficulty explaining the process of democratization in Japan, and argues that a state-in-society approach is better suited to explaining the democratization process diverse cultural contexts. Taking a bottom-up view of recent developments in Japanese civil society through ...


Cyprus, Ethnic Conflict And Conflicted Heritage, Costas M. Constantinou, Mete Hatay 2010 University of Cyprus

Cyprus, Ethnic Conflict And Conflicted Heritage, Costas M. Constantinou, Mete Hatay

Costas M. Constantinou

This article examines the dominant heritage discourse in Cyprus
concerning preservation and destruction, and its implications for ethnocultural
identity construction and promotion. By exploring two heritage
sites (one north and one south of the Buffer Zone) it suggests that
heritage practice is more complex than commonly presented. Specifically,
it shows how ethnic conflict has not only been responsible for heritage
destruction but also for the preservation of it as an unintended
consequence of ‘freezing’ development. It also examines how ethnic
groups and individuals may come to evaluate their ‘own’ heritage
negatively, specifically as an inconvenient cultural load, in efforts to ...


Pedro E O Lobo, Paulo Ferreira da Cunha 2010 Universidade do Porto

Pedro E O Lobo, Paulo Ferreira Da Cunha

Paulo Ferreira da Cunha

Somos constantemente bombardeados com desgraças. Os telejornais coleccionam desgraças pelo mundo, até de poucos mortos, todas juntas. O catastrofismo é empolado por privilegiados e ociosos (que disso não se dão conta), que gostariam de mais privilégios, e cuja ociosidade precisa de ser preenchida com emoções fortes, ainda que artificiais. Quando é necessário unir os Portugueses e trabalhar muito, precisamente nos acenam com o mito do Dom Sebastião... Como seria a desilusão dos incautos por eles arrastados se acaso triunfassem as suas pretensões... O presente artigo pretende sublinhar a importância do triunfo do princípio da responsabilidade sobre os impulsos tanáticos, suicidas ...

Following In The Footsteps Of Policy Entrepreneurs: Policy Advocates And Pro Forma Adopters, Brian Wampler 2010 Boise State University

Following In The Footsteps Of Policy Entrepreneurs: Policy Advocates And Pro Forma Adopters, Brian Wampler

Brian Wampler

The third wave of democratization has been accompanied by the spread of new institutions that allow citizens to directly participate in shaping policy outcomes. Leading international organizations, such as the World Bank and UN Habitat, have disseminated “best practice” programs identified with “good government” policy reform efforts. One of the most well-known programs, Participatory Budgeting (PB), was first adopted by an entrepreneurial government in 1989 as a means to promote social justice, accountability, and transparency. Yet, when these programs are copied by policy advocates and pro forma adopters the political pay-offs for government officials are smaller, which leads them to ...

República E Justiça Social, Paulo Ferreira da Cunha 2010 Universidade do Porto

República E Justiça Social, Paulo Ferreira Da Cunha

Paulo Ferreira da Cunha

Será a República socialmente indiferente? Algumas experiências concretas (e desde logo a I República portuguesa) levaram alguns, sobretudo mais adeptos de transformações mais profundas e violentas, a criticar o republicanismo por contrário à Justiça Social, ou, pelo menos, como muito tímido nessa matéria. Mas será que a República é, por natureza, anti-social, a-social ou mesmo conservadora? Não nos parece...

Risk Sensitivity And Terrorism, Lawrence Kuznar, James Lutz 2010 Indiana University - Purdue University Fort Wayne

Risk Sensitivity And Terrorism, Lawrence Kuznar, James Lutz

James M Lutz

One enduring question about terrorism is why individuals choose to join terrorist groups. Past studies have shown that terrorists are not always poor, and they can in fact come from more privileged groups in society. Risk sensitivity and prospect theory are approaches that can help explain some of the anomalies. They suggest that two types of group are likely to supply members for terrorist organizations in disproportionate numbers. One group consists of those who face a loss of status or position due to ongoing changes in society. A second group consists of those who have an opportunity to gain a ...
