Service-Learning And Simulations, Shannon Jenkins 2009 University of Massachusetts - Dartmouth

Service-Learning And Simulations, Shannon Jenkins

Shannon Jenkins

Both service-learning and simulations have been shown to positively impact student outcomes but are not often used together. This article examines how to effectively combine these active learning styles in order to reap the benefits of both. After examining a case where this was done and the impact this had on student evaluations and learning outcomes, I discuss how such projects can be successfully combined in a variety of other classes.

The Relationship Between Immigration And Nativism In Europe And North America, Cas Mudde 2009 DePauw University

The Relationship Between Immigration And Nativism In Europe And North America, Cas Mudde

Cas Mudde

Mass migration is thought to be a major factor behind the rise of the radical right. But while there clearly is a relationship (particularly in Western Europe), the connection is not as straightforward as is often assumed. Higher levels of immigration in the three regions examined in this report —North America, Western Europe, and Central and Eastern Europe — do not automatically correlate to more votes for radical-right parties.

The success of radical-right parties has been uneven in Europe. Since 1980, there have only been a handful of radical-right parties in Western Europe and in Central and Eastern Europe which have ...

The Populist Radical Right: A Pathological Normalcy, Cas Mudde 2009 DePauw University

The Populist Radical Right: A Pathological Normalcy, Cas Mudde

Cas Mudde

In recent years more and more studies have pointed to the limitations of demand-side explanations of the electoral success of populist radical right parties. They argue that supply-side factors need to be included as well. While previous authors have made these claims on the basis of purely empirical arguments, this article provides a (meta)theoretical argumentation for the importance of supply-side explanations. It takes issue with the dominant view on the populist radical right, which considers it to be alien to mainstream values in contemporary western democracies – the ‘normal pathology thesis’. Instead, it argues that the populist radical right should ...

The Making Of A Radical Economist, HOWARD J. SHERMAN 2009 University of California, Los Angeles

The Making Of A Radical Economist, Howard J. Sherman

HOWARD J SHERMAN

This article answers two questions. First, how do radical economists develop? Second, how do radical departments develop? In order to answer these two questions, I use my own experience in becoming a radical economist and my own experience in developing a radical department.


The Roller Coaster Economy: Financial Crisis, Great Recession, And The Public Option, HOWARD J. SHERMAN 2009 University of California, Los Angeles

The Roller Coaster Economy: Financial Crisis, Great Recession, And The Public Option, Howard J. Sherman

HOWARD J SHERMAN

This is an explanation of how and why the economic downturn of 2007 became the Great Recession of 2008 and 2009. Author Howard Sherman explores the root causes of the cycle of boom and bust of the economy, focusing on the 2008 financial crisis and the Great Recession of 2007-2009. He makes an argument that recessions and the resulting painful involuntary unemployment are inherent in capitalism itself. Sherman clearly illustrates the mechanisms of business cycles, and he provides a thoughtful alternative that would rein in their destructive effects.


Pro-Prosecution Judges: "Tough On Crime," Soft On Strategy, Ripe For Disqualification, Keith Swisher 2009 Arizona Summit Law School

Pro-Prosecution Judges: "Tough On Crime," Soft On Strategy, Ripe For Disqualification, Keith Swisher

Keith Swisher

In this Article, I take the most extensive look to date at pro-prosecution judges and ultimately advance the following, slightly scandalous claim: Particularly in our post-Caperton, political-realist world, “tough on crime” elective judges should recuse themselves from all criminal cases. The contextual parts to this claim are, in the main, a threefold description: (i) the "groundbreaking" Caperton v. A.T. Massey Coal decision, its predecessors, and its progeny; (ii) the judicial ethics of disqualification; and (iii) empirical and anecdotal evidence of pro-prosecution (commonly called "tough on crime") campaigns and attendant electoral pressures. Building on this description and the work of ...


Revolt Against The Czars: Why Barack Obama’S Staffing Critics Are (Mostly) Wrong, José D. Villalobos, Justin S. Vaughn 2009 University of Texas at El Paso

Revolt Against The Czars: Why Barack Obama’S Staffing Critics Are (Mostly) Wrong, José D. Villalobos, Justin S. Vaughn

José D. Villalobos

Rather than view the alleged proliferation of “czars” in recent presidential administrations as a threat to the constitutional order, we consider it part of an ongoing reorganization of the presidential branch designed to maximize leadership capacity as presidents continue to take more responsibility for policy development and implementation, a phenomenon driven as much by congressional abdication as presidential zeal for power. The real debate lies over whether the president can delegate his constitutional authority to those who work beneath him. We posit that presidents may choose to delegate within their own discretion, so long as it is within the limits ...

Power, Exit Costs, And Renegotiation In International Law, Timothy L. Meyer 2009 University of Georgia School of Law

Power, Exit Costs, And Renegotiation In International Law, Timothy L. Meyer

Timothy Meyer

Scholars have long understood that the instability of power has ramifications for compliance with international law. Scholars have not, however, focused on how states’ expectations about shifting power affect the initial design of international agreements. In this paper, I integrate shifting power into an analysis of the initial design of both the formal and substantive aspects of agreements. I argue that a state expecting to become more powerful over time incurs an opportunity cost by agreeing to formal provisions that raise the cost of exiting an agreement. Exit costs – which promote the stability of legal rules – have distributional implications. Before ...


Cypriot In-Dependence And The Problem Of Sovereignty, Costas M. Constantinou 2009 University of Cyprus

Cypriot In-Dependence And The Problem Of Sovereignty, Costas M. Constantinou

Costas M. Constantinou

States have strange beginnings; more so postcolonial ones.
They can begin as settlements of incarceration for criminal Europeans (Australia). Or as
projects of restorative justice making up for racist criminality and mass extermination (Israel). Or
as sites of repatriation for emancipated Africans after centuries of slavery, rehabilitating through
intra-colonialism (Liberia). States can come into being within imperial spaces of control, within
territories and borders imagined by others (the case with most African states). States can succeed
colonial rule over disparate lands and islands, tasked to govern a diverse pool of ethno-cultural
communities (e.g. Indonesia, Philippines, Burma and Papua New ...
