Tobacco control advocates must demand high-quality media campaigns: the California experience. (1/1275)

OBJECTIVE: To document efforts on the part of public officials in California to soften the media campaign's attack on the tobacco industry and to analyse strategies to counter those efforts on the part of tobacco control advocates. METHODS: Data were gathered from interviews with programme participants, direct observation, written materials, and media stories. In addition, internal documents were released by the state's Department of Health Services in response to requests made under the California Public Records Act by Americans for Nonsmokers' Rights. Finally, a draft of the paper was circulated to 11 key players for their comments. RESULTS: In 1988 california voters enacted Proposition 99, an initiative that raised the tobacco tax by $0.25 and allocated 20% of the revenues to anti-tobacco education. A media campaign, which was part of the education programme, directly attacked the tobacco industry, exposing the media campaign to politically based efforts to shut it down or soften it. Through use of outsider strategies such as advertising, press conferences, and public meetings, programme advocates were able to counter the efforts to soften the campaign. CONCLUSION: Anti-tobacco media campaigns that expose industry manipulation are a key component of an effective tobacco control programme. The effectiveness of these campaigns, however, makes them a target for elimination by the tobacco industry. The experience from California demonstrates the need for continuing, aggressive intervention by nongovernmental organisations in order to maintain the quality of anti-tobacco media campaigns.  (+info)

Reforming the health sector in developing countries: the central role of policy analysis. (2/1275)

Policy analysis is an established discipline in the industrialized world, yet its application to developing countries has been limited. The health sector in particular appears to have been neglected. This is surprising because there is a well recognized crisis in health systems, and prescriptions abound of what health policy reforms countries should introduce. However, little attention has been paid to how countries should carry out reforms, much less who is likely to favour or resist such policies. This paper argues that much health policy wrongly focuses attention on the content of reform, and neglects the actors involved in policy reform (at the international, national sub-national levels), the processes contingent on developing and implementing change and the context within which policy is developed. Focus on policy content diverts attention from understanding the processes which explain why desired policy outcomes fail to emerge. The paper is organized in 4 sections. The first sets the scene, demonstrating how the shift from consensus to conflict in health policy established the need for a greater emphasis on policy analysis. The second section explores what is meant by policy analysis. The third investigates what other disciplines have written that help to develop a framework of analysis. And the final section suggests how policy analysis can be used not only to analyze the policy process, but also to plan.  (+info)

The state of health planning in the '90s. (3/1275)

The art of health planning is relatively new in many developing countries and its record is not brilliant. However, for policy makers committed to sustainable health improvements and the principle of equity, it is an essential process, and in need of improvement rather than minimalization. The article argues that the possibility of planning playing a proper role in health care allocative decisions is increasingly being endangered by a number of developments. These include the increasing use of projects, inappropriate decentralization policies, and the increasing attention being given to NGOs. More serious is the rise of New Right thinking which is undermining the role of the State altogether in health care provision. The article discusses these developments and makes suggestions as to possible action needed to counteract them.  (+info)

Choice and accountability in health promotion: the role of health economics. (4/1275)

Choices need to be made between competing uses of health care resources. There is debate about how these choices should be made, who should make them and the criteria upon which they should be made. Evaluation of health care is an important part of this debate. It has been suggested that the contribution of health economics to the evaluation of health promotion is limited, both because the methods and principles underlying economic evaluation are unsuited to health promotion, and because the political and cultural processes governing the health care system are more appropriate mechanisms for allocating health care resources than systematic economic analysis of the costs and benefits of different health care choices. This view misrepresents and misunderstands the contribution of health economics to the evaluation of health promotion. It overstates the undoubted methodological difficulties of evaluating health promotion. It also argues, mistakenly, that economists see economic evaluation as a substitute for the political and cultural processes governing health care, rather than an input to them. This paper argues for an economics input on grounds of efficiency, accountability and ethics, and challenges the critics of the economic approach to judge alternative mechanisms for allocating resources by the same criteria.  (+info)

Developing a plan for primary health care facilities in Soweto, South Africa. Part I: Guiding principles and methods. (5/1275)

The new political era in South Africa offers unique opportunities for the development of more equitable health care policies. However, resource constraints are likely to remain in the foreseeable future, and efficiency therefore remains an important concern. This article describes the guiding principles and methods used to develop a coherent and objective plan for comprehensive primary health care facilities in Soweto. The article begins with an overview of the context within which the research was undertaken. Problems associated with planning in transition are highlighted, and a participatory research approach is recommended as a solution to these problems. The article goes on to describe how the research methods were developed and applied in line with the principles of participatory research. The methods were essentially rapid appraisal techniques which included group discussions, detailed checklists, observation, record reviews and the adaptation of international and local guidelines for service planning. It is suggested that these methods could be applied to other urban areas in South Africa and elsewhere, and that they are particularly appropriate in periods of transition when careful facilitation of dialogue between stakeholders is required in tandem with the generation of rapid results for policy-makers.  (+info)

The political economy of capitated managed care. (6/1275)

Despite the fact that billions of dollars are being invested in capitated managed care, it has yet to be subjected to the rigors of robust microeconomic modeling; hence, the seemingly intuitive assumptions driving managed care orthodoxy continue to gain acceptance with almost no theoretical examination or debate. The research in this paper finds the standard unidimensional model of risk generally used to analyze capitation--i.e., that risk is homogenous in nature, organizationally fungible, and linear in amplitude--to be inadequate. Therefore, the paper proposes to introduce a multidimensional model based on the assumption that phenomenologically unrelated species of risk result from non-homogenous types of socioeconomic activity in the medical marketplace. The multidimensional analysis proceeds to concentrate on two species of risk: probability risk and technical risk. A two-dimensional risk matrix reveals that capitation, far from being a market-oriented solution, actually prevents the formation of a dynamic price system necessary to optimize marketplace trades of medical goods and services. The analysis concludes that a universal attempt to purchase healthcare through capitation or any other insurance mechanism would render the reasonable attainment of social efficiency highly problematic. While in reality there are other identifiable species of risk (such as cost-utility risk), the analysis proceeds to hypothesize what a market-oriented managed care approach might look like within a two-dimensional risk matrix.  (+info)

Health outcomes and managed care: discussing the hidden issues. (7/1275)

Too often the debate over health outcomes and managed care has glossed over a series of complex social, political, and ethical issues. Exciting advances in outcomes research have raised hopes for logical medical reform. However, science alone will not optimize our patients' health, since value judgements are necessary and integral parts of attempts to improve health outcomes within managed care organizations. Therefore, to form healthcare policy that is both fair and efficient, we must examine the fundamental values and ethical concerns that are imbedded in our efforts to shape care. We must openly discuss the hidden issues including: (1) trade-offs between standardization of care and provider-patient autonomy; (2) effects of financial incentives on physicians' professionalism; (3) opportunity costs inherent in the design of insurance plans; (4) responsibilities of managed care plans for the health of the public; (5) judicious and valid uses of data systems; and (6) the politics of uncertainty.  (+info)

Revisiting community participation. (8/1275)

Community participation in health is a complex entity that has been examined extensively in the literature and continues to be of great interest among community health workers. The genesis of the idea and its conceptual development are primarily attributed to large multinational health institutions, particularly the World Health Organization. However, the implementation of community participation is the ultimate responsibility of local health programme initiators. It is therefore at the local level where day to day realities of incorporating community participation into health service delivery are confronted. This paper reviews the value of community participation in health and provides a detailed examination of the challenges facing its implementation and sustainability. In 1978, the World Health Organization placed community participation squarely at the centre of their strategy to achieve Health For All By The Year 2000. As the year 2000 nears, it is time to critically re-examine the notion of community participation and the most pressing challenges to its viability.  (+info)

The odds ratios can be interpreted as follows. Let us first consider the first variable, prepared to vote. When the students score on the preparedness to vote scale increases by a unit value, the chance that the student will name a political party increases by a value of 1.995, or roughly 100%, controlling for the other variables in the model. At the lower end of the figure, when information from parents increases by one unit value, the odds ratio of that person naming a political party increases by a value of 1.096, or roughly 9.6%. In other words, the increase is significant, but not by very much. An odds ratio of 1 would indicate that the variable in question is not related to an increase in the likelihood of naming a political party. All of the variables reported in Figure 8 have an odds ratio significantly greater than one.. Thus from Figure 8, we see the characteristics which are related to an increase the likelihood that a student named a political party, controlling for the other ...

Because of the demise of traditional society, conservatism as a political ideology is irrelevant to contemporary politics." Discuss.. The demise of traditional society has certain implications in relation to politics and conservatism as a political ideology. It implies that there has been a shift in traditional values, both in society and concerning the way in which politics is conducted in terms of what approach is taken based on ones political persuasion. Individualism has become prominent in our society and the promotion of ones own advancement is paramount in a modern democratic state. This has proven to produce difficulties for the traditional conservatives in promoting core beliefs such as an emphasis on inevitable inequality and hierarchical preferences. It is therefore imperative to determine how society has changed; in order to establish levels of compatibility conservatism has with this contemporary society. It may be that conservatism has the ability to adapt and change to suit the ...

Scholars have raised doubts about the ability of political parties to fulfil their traditional role as transmission belts between citizens and legislators in the EU. We discuss how the different institutional environment of the EU affects the assumptions and predictions of theories of political parties developed for the national context and discuss how political parties can influence EU legislative decision-making. We distinguish between partisan effects in the electoral and legislative arena, and argue for a clear distinction between the effects of national parties, national party delegations and transnational party groups when studying EU party politics. The empirical literature shows that, whereas parties play a role in most institutions, they are not always the dominant players, and their effect varies both across and within these institutions.. ...
This article presents a research which compared the individual and cumulative empirical impacts of growth-decline, form of government, position and state on selected political processes in rural counties in the U.S. In order to accomplish this objective, it is necessary to measure variation in political processes; to identify the effects which growth-decline, form of government and as appropriate, type of position have on the variance and mean level of rural county political processes; and to weigh and compare the relative impact of each independent variable on variation in political processes. Data from this study are derived from a survey questionnaire sent to country officials in rural counties in the states of Arizona, Illinois, New Mexico, North Carolina, North Dakota and Utah. The results indicate that the rural county political processes are predetermined by situational factors outside the control of the decision makers.

Presidential elections, legislative elections and local elections were held in the Philippines on May 10, 2004. In the presidential election, incumbent president Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo won a full six-year term as president, with a margin of just over one million votes over her leading opponent, highly popular movie actor Fernando Poe, Jr.. The elections were notable for several reasons. This election first saw the implementation of the Overseas Absentee Voting Act of 2003 (see Wikisource), which enabled Filipinos in over 70 countries to vote. This is also the first election since the 1986 People Power Revolution where an incumbent president ran in the presidential election. Under the 1987 Constitution, an elected president cannot run for another term. However, Arroyo was not elected president, but instead succeeded ousted President Joseph Estrada, who was earlier impeached with charges of plunder and corruption in 2000 and later convicted on the plunder charge but received conditional pardon ...
Yes, Bill Clinton ASKED Russia to interfere in a US presidential election by Jon Rappoport July 18, 2017 Press outlets are now reminding us that President Bill Clinton interfered in the 1996 Russia election that brought Boris Yeltsin to power for a second term. This is by way of saying,

Not too long ago, Deschutes County Republicans enjoyed a nearly 10,000-voter edge over Democrats. Republicans running for county commissioner trounced their opponents by 2-to-1 margins from the early 1990s through 2008. But voter registration data show the gap between Democrats and Republicans has narrowed by about half.

The 1896 presidential election between William Jennings Bryan and William McKinley has gained new salience in the wake of the 2016 contest. We provide the first systematic analysis of voting patterns in 1896, combining county-level returns with economic, financial, demographic and climatological data. Specifically, we consider the economic concerns of the Populists with falling crop prices, high interest rates and railroad monopolies. We show that Bryan did well where mortgage interest rates were high, railroad penetration was low, and crop prices had declined by most over the previous decade. Using our estimates, we show that further declines in crop prices or increases in interest rates would have been enough to tip the Electoral College in Bryans favor. But to change the outcome, the additional fall in crop prices would have had to be large. The counterfactual increase in interest rates appears, at first blush, to have been more modest. But where previous authors have argued that interest ...

عربي. Atlanta, GA…. The Carter Center hopes to observe presidential and legislative elections in Palestine, but will only consider the opportunity if the democratic principles and fundamental freedoms required for genuine and inclusive elections across the West Bank and Gaza are met. These include universal suffrage, the right to participate, and the fundamental freedoms of association, assembly, movement, and expression as enshrined in the Palestinian Basic Law, the Arab Charter on Human Rights, and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. The Carter Center urges all political parties to respect and protect these principles.. The Jan. 25, 2010, deadline for Palestinian presidential and Legislative Council elections was missed due to a deepening rift between political parties, including arbitrary arrests of political opponents on both sides. The current impasse between the major parties is depriving Palestinians of their right to freely elect their representatives.. ...
Scholars have long argued that political participation tends to increase with economic and social modernization. In this study of Turkey, however, the author shows that rapid socio-economic growth has coincided with a substantial decline in turnout at the polls. His ecological analysis of subnational aggregate voting data for the sixties and the explanation of his startling findings form the core of this up-to-date and comprehensive survey of Turkeys political development.. Turkey is one of very few countries to combine rapid socio-economic change with a democratic system. The author demonstrates that in this context modernization tends to increase autonomous, instrumental, and class-based political participation, and to decrease mobilized, deferential, and communal-based political participation. The topics he examines include: social cleavages and the party system; distribution of land and income; geographical and social mobility; access to education; regional variations in voting turnout; ...
This course explores the language of politics. In particular, it examines how politicians or political actors and political commentators use language to talk about politics and how politics also influences language. We will examine the speeches of politicians, party propaganda, slogans, and other discourse types aimed at influencing the political process. Also examined is the language used in communicative events like congressional or parliamentary sessions, cabinet meetings, state of the union address, and so forth. The political actors whose language will be examined include presidents and vice-presidents, members of Congress, parliamentarians, senators, governors, and action group members. Because the course involves investigating how language and politics influence each other, the course will cross disciplines like political science, journalism, and communication. To help broaden students perspectives on language and politics the course will not focus exclusively on language and politics in ...
Formed from the merger of the British colony of the Gold Coast and the Togoland trust territory, Ghana in 1957 became the first sub-Saharan country in colonial Africa to gain its independence. Ghana endured a long series of coups before Lt. Jerry RAWLINGS took power in 1981 and banned political parties. After approving a new constitution and restoring multiparty politics in 1992, RAWLINGS won presidential elections in 1992 and 1996 but was constitutionally prevented from running for a third term in 2000. John KUFUOR succeeded him and was reelected in 2004. John Atta MILLS won the 2008 presidential election and took over as head of state, but he died in July 2012 and was constitutionally succeeded by his vice president, John Dramani MAHAMA, who subsequently won the December 2012 presidential election ...

Downloadable! Two main career paths are prevalent among politicians in modern democracies: there are career politicians (i.e., politicians who work in the political sector until retirement), and political careers (i.e., there are politicians who leave politics before retirement and work in the private sector). In this paper, we propose a dynamic equilibrium model of the careers of politicians in a political economy with a private sector and a political sector, where individuals are heterogeneous with respect to their market ability and political skills. We characterize the conditions under which the two career paths emerge in equilibrium, and investigate the effects of monetary incentives and other features of the political-economic environment on the quality of politicians and their careers. Our analysis also provides a rationale for the existence and the survival of political parties.
Political Parties & the Founders Political parties are complicated, important informal institutions of government that are difficult to evaluate in the American context A. Many of the Founders were profoundly uncomfortable with the notion of parties 1. they wanted some type of government by consensus where parties would play little in any role 2. summarized by George Washington in his 1796 farewell address:
Impartial, credible election observers play a key role in shaping perceptions about the quality and legitimacy of electoral processes. The Carter Center has been a pioneer of election observation, monitoring more than 100 elections in Africa, Latin America, and Asia since 1989 and forging many of the techniques now common to the field. To ensure a meaningful, nonpartisan role for its election observation activities, The Carter Center must be invited by a countrys election authorities and welcomed by the major political parties.. Election observation missions start long before election day, with experts and long-term observers analyzing election laws, assessing voter education and registration, and evaluating fairness in campaigns. On election day, observers assess the casting and counting of ballots. In the days and weeks after the election, observers monitor the tabulation process, electoral dispute resolution, and the publication of final results. Before, during, and after an election, the ...
To become the Democratic nominee for president, a candidate needs to capture 2,026 delegate votes. State primaries and caucuses select pledged delegates, who are obligated to vote for the candidate their state chose. Additional unpledged delegates - consisting mostly of party leaders and elected officials - are free to vote for any candidate. Daily delegate totals reflect all delegates allotted to the state, even though some may not pledge their vote until a later date. States are listed according to the first major event in its selection process. Republican Calendar ...
Political candidates often believe they must focus their campaign efforts on a small number of swing voters open for ideological change. Based on the wisdom of opinion polls, this might seem like a good idea. But do most voters really hold their political attitudes so firmly that they are unreceptive to persuasion? We tested this premise during the most recent general election in Sweden, in which a left- and a right-wing coalition were locked in a close race. We asked our participants to state their voter intention, and presented them with a political survey of wedge issues between the two coalitions. Using a sleight-of-hand we then altered their replies to place them in the opposite political camp, and invited them to reason about their attitudes on the manipulated issues. Finally, we summarized their survey score, and asked for their voter intention again. The results showed that no more than 22% of the manipulated replies were detected, and that a full 92% of the participants accepted and endorsed

Feb. 22, 2013) - Directly after the 2012 presidential election, The Post & Email and the Citizens Bureau of Investigation (CBI) called for a forensic investigation and CPA audit of the results, particularly in swing states where "vote-flipping" had been witnessed both during early voting and on Election Day.. Liberty Alliance had also called for a full investigation of the 2012 election by petitioning Congress. Prior to the January 4 counting of the electoral votes, the North American Law Center had called upon Congress to withhold approval of the votes because of claims of significant election fraud.. Last month, CBI stated that in regard to the "2012 Election Heist," "the prosecution is just getting going.". On Tuesday, the John W. Pope Civitas Institute reported that "the staff of the North Carolina State Board of Elections (SBE) successfully subverted state law to facilitate online voter registration in North Carolina by the 2012 Barack Obama campaign. In doing so they coordinated with ...
This dissertation consists of three essays examining the development of aggressive and violent political attitudes and actions. The first paper examines the relationship between genetic variation, volumetric changes in the ventral diencephalon, and aggressive attitudes towards outgroup members. Results from a mediation analysis demonstrate the role of brain development in the formation of hostile political attitudes. The second paper uses a formal model to explore the matching of potentially politically violent persons with organizations engaged in ongoing armed conflict. The final paper presents and tests a biological model of political violence. Results from a Candidate Gene Analysis demonstrate the inciting role of political repression in persons with proclivities towards aggression and violence ...

California Trump voters low level of trust in the federal government is one of the major ways that they differ from other voters. The October PPIC Statewide Survey found that 81% of Trump voters say the federal government is run by a few big interests, wastes a lot of taxpayer money, and only does what is right sometimes (or never), compared to only 24% of Clinton voters. The large gap on these questions between Trump and Clinton voters in 2016 stands in sharp contrast to 2008, when McCain and Obama voters were about equally likely to express distrust (55% and 57%, respectively). Yet there are some areas of overlap between Trump and Clinton voters. In Californias US Senate race between two Democrats, PPIC surveys indicate that about half of Trump voters decided not to participate. Of those who indicated they would vote, though, Trump voters were about evenly split between Kamala Harris-preferred by most Clinton voters (58%)-and Loretta Sanchez. In October, we found a noteworthy 22% of Trump ...
Issue 1. Pro-Abortion President Barack Obama and Pro-Lifers One Year Later. By Dave Andrusko. A year ago I wrote, Our job is to defeat proposals where we can, minimize the damage where we cannot, and to raise high the banner that signals that we are growing stronger as we rebound from a tough 2008 election cycle. I added, It can be done. With your invaluable help, it will be done. From the bottom of my heart let me thank each and every one of you for taking up that banner. You have waved it high, signaling with unmistakably clarity that you have only begun to fight. To me your unstinting resistance to the most pro-abortion President ever was utterly predictable. Thanks in no small measure to an outpouring of information from National Right to Life you had taken the measure of Barack Obama long before he became one of the least-experienced men ever to assume the highest office in the land. You knew from alerts and e-mail postings and blogs written by the experienced and savvy staff at NRLC that ...
Stein said that most voters have already made up their minds on who theyre voting for. What this years election comes down to is whether a voter is enthusiastic enough to get out and vote. Unlike Republicans, the probability of a Democrat showing up to the polls is low. This is not caused by a lack of enthusiasm, but because of demographics and age. Even though they have a declining base, a Republican voter has a higher probability of voting.. ...
Posted on 07/03/2008 6:20:41 AM PDT by rhema. A new report shows voters are interested in the position Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama takes on abortion. The Internet traffic monitoring firm HitWise indicates abortion is now the number one political issue voters are looking for when they conduct a search on Obama s campaign web site. Hitwise analyzed the top 200 U.S. search terms that sent visits to the presidential candidates websites for the first half of 2008, revealing the types of content searched for the most among Internet users. Issues like education, the environment, health care and immigration are important to visitors on Obama s web site, but HitWise says abortion tops them all. In the first quarter of 2008, abortion came in as the number two most important issue on the minds of voters looking to Obama s web site to learn more about him. As news of Obama s pro-abortion position has filtered throughout the nation, the abortion search term moved up to the top spot over ...
From popular outcry, President Goodluck Jonathan had promised Nigerians and the international community that the elections on March 28 and April 11 will hold; that Prof Attahiru Jega will not be removed or sent on terminal leave when the elections are just around the corner. I had told Nigerians and the international community that President Jonathan could not be trusted in his promises, as he will always go behind his promises to initiate or instigate moves that will undermine his own promises. How can we explain the Pro-Jonathans protest by the Oodua Peeples Congress (OPC) for the removal of Jega as the nation witnessed in Lagos on March 16, which was meant to scuttle the March 28 and April 11 elections he has promised will hold?. When it dawned on the President and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) that the use of Permanent Voter Cards (PVCs) and Smart Card Readers (obviously meant to bring about free, fair and credible elections, devoid of rigging) was a foregone conclusion, protests and ...

As the field of gender and politics has grown, it has become more global, more critical, and more interdisciplinary. The series Crossing Boundaries of Gender and Politics in the Global South creates a space for dialogue among scholars of global gender and politics who are dedicated to demonstrating the significance of gender for full political analysis. The series focuses on promoting works that: • Cross traditional disciplinary boundaries to make innovative contributions to the study of politics • Focus on gender and politics in countries and regions of the Global South or on interactions between the Global North and South • Analyze transnational phenomena, such as transnational feminist organizing, the politics of migration, or gender and global labor regimes • Integrate feminist or queer theory with studies of international relations or comparative politics ...
Downloadable! The paper investigates the effect of local electoral rules on the political participation of the residents, as reflected in voter turnout. It focuses on Italy, where municipal voting schemes are differentiated by the size of the city: a single ballot system applies to municipalities with less than 15,000 inhabitants, while a dual ballot system is in place above that threshold. By exploiting this discontinuity, the paper finds that the dual ballot increases political participation. The magnitude of the effect is estimated at between 1 and 3 percentage points.

Introduces the emerging field of formal political economy. The variety of ways in which economists and political scientists think about political science and the interplay of political science and economics are analyzed. The first part of the course focuses on the formal modeling of political behavior and political institutions; the theory of social choice (how groups of rational individuals make decisions) and collective action (how groups of rational individuals take action) are analyzed. The second part of the course discusses the connection between politics and economics and investigates the effect of political variables on the determination of economic outcomes. Some questions that are answered: How can special groups of individuals enhance their well being by political action? What is lobbying? What is the effect of contributions on political outcomes?
Description: This dissertation examines the following research question: Which types of electoral rules chosen in post-conflict states best promote peace? And are those effects conditional upon other factors? I argue that the effects are conditional upon the types of political parties that exist in the post-conflict environment. Although this explanation is contrary to scholars that speak of political parties as products of the electoral system, political parties often predate the choice of electoral system. Especially in post-conflict states, political parties play an important role in the negotiation process and hence in the design of the electoral rules. I argue that the effects of electoral rules on peace duration are mitigated by the degree to which a party system is broad (nonexclusive) or narrow (exclusive). I develop a theoretical model that led to three hypotheses focusing on the independent role that political parties play in mitigating the effects of electoral rules on peace duration. ...
Across liberal democracies, electoral behavior is on the rise and this has given rise to more fundamental questions on democratic legitimacy and stability. Faculty of Social Sciences / Center for Political Science Research The Center for Political Science Research can be considered one of the leading research centers for political science in Europe. Its activities focus on political participation, political attitudes (with an emphasis on political trust) and electoral behavior. The Center is highly productive in academic terms, with some 150 articles included in the citation index (e.g., Electoral Studies, Party Politics, West European Politics, Political Research Quarterly, Political Studies, ...). The Center is one of the leading partners in the Belgian Election Survey, and members have published extensively on Belgian politics. While the Center is open to various methods and perspectives, the focus is clearly on comparative quantitative research. he director, Marc Hooghe, is holder of a ...

Is the party over? Parties are the central institutions of representative democracy, but critics increasingly claim that parties are failing to perform their democratic functions. This book assembles cross-national evidence to assess how parties link the individual citizen to the formation of governments and then to government policies. Using the Comparative Study of Electoral Systems and other recent cross-national data, the chapters examine the workings of this party linkage process across established and new democracies. Political parties still dominate the electoral process in shaping the discourse of campaigns, the selection of candidates, and mobilizing citizens to vote. Equally striking, parties link citizen preferences to the choice of representatives, with strong congruence between voter and party Left/Right positions. These preferences are then translated in the formation of coalition governments and their policies. The book argues that the critics of parties have overlooked the ability of
LECANTO -- For most people, the presidential election events of the past week have been a fascinating opportunity to witness history in the making. For those who teach history, the events have been a living lesson and have also been a bit of a pain. Bill Hartley, social studies department chairman at Lecanto High School, has been avoiding visiting the schools main office lately. Every time he wanders too far from his classroom, he runs into people who have questions about whats happening with the election. He hasnt had time to grade all his papers and he hasnt gotten much sleep. Still, it is hard to complain about events that have ignited animated student discussions about the minute details of presidential elections usually relegated to footnotes in history books. This is the most powerful civics lesson and history lesson that Ive ever seen, Hartley said. Across Citrus County, students and school staff members have been transfixed by the national events. With the sound of CNN humming in ...
Background Political elections are dominance competitions. When men win a dominance competition, their testosterone levels rise or remain stable to resist a circadian decline; and when they lose, their testosterone levels fall. However, it is unknown whether this pattern of testosterone change extends beyond interpersonal competitions to the vicarious experience of winning or losing in the context of political elections. Womens testosterone responses to dominance competition outcomes are understudied, and to date, a clear pattern of testosterone changes in response to winning and losing dominance competitions has not emerged. Methodology/Principal Findings The present study investigated voters testosterone responses to the outcome of the 2008 United States Presidential election. 183 participants provided multiple saliva samples before and after the winner was announced on Election Night. The results show that male Barack Obama voters (winners) had stable post-outcome testosterone levels, whereas
Introduction. Amerikansk og politisk valgkamp SA-EN studieretningsopgave Astrid Ravn 2.c 21/3-2012 Amerikansk politik og valgkamp Navn: Astrid Ravn Skole: Vejen gymnasium og hf Afleveringsdato: 21 marts 2012 Abstract Today the term ideology is used in so many ways, that it is often difficult to know how to describe it. In some ways, the common, shared beliefs of a community may be considered its common sense ideology. This paper examines the ideological differences between the two major contemporary political parties in The United States - the Republican Party and the Democratic Party. Both parties have a monetary approach to policy, although the Republicans are more extreme and more ultra-liberal in their thinking. This study investigates moreover the two candidates individual use of linguistic and rhetorical elements in their convention speeches, and how this affects the receiver. Rhetoric is an art that aims to improve the facility of speakers or writers who attempt to inform, ...

By KAIKO NAMUSA -. FEMALE political stakeholders have condemned the violence that characterised 2013 and have implored political parties to learn to co-exist.. They said yesterday that violence was a hindrance to the participation of citizens, including women and youths, in the political and governance processes of the country.. This was in a communiqué on political violence issued by executive committee members of womens wings and female members of national executive committees of political parties during the national women in politics project advisory group meeting organised by the Zambia National Womens Lobby in Lusaka.. "We the leadership of the womens wings executive committees and some female members of the national executive committees of various political parties gathered here at the Zambia National Womens Lobby have noted with concern, the increasing incidents of political violence that occurred in 2013 in the country amongst political parties and sometimes within political ...
Shaming the other guy into submission is pretty much impossible on Capitol Hill (this is Congress, after all), but that doesn't stop Democrats and Republicans from trying. After John A. Boehner played the card in a Thursday news conference, telling reporters that voting against the upcoming defense spending bill - as some Democrats have threatened to do - would be shameful, one Democrat threw the gauntlet right back at the Ohio Republican. Washington Rep. Adam Smith, the ranking Democrat on the Armed Services Committee, issued a terse email response. Speaker Boehner says it is shameful for Democrats to vote against this year's [National Defense Authorization Act], because, he claims, opposing the NDAA is opposing our troops. But Speaker Boehner voted against the NDAA in 2009 and 2010 with well over 100 of his fellow Republicans joining him both times. If he thinks it is so shameful to vote against the NDAA then somebody should ask the Speaker how he lives with his own shame. ...
British Politics (BP) has a wide scope, and seeks to provide a counterweight to the growing fragmentation of this field during recent years. The journal promotes a holistic understanding of British politics by encouraging a closer integration between theoretical and empirical research, between historical and contemporary analyses, and by fostering a conception of British politics as a broad and multi-disciplinary field of study. This incorporates a range of sub-fields, including psephology, policy analysis, regional studies, comparative politics, institutional analysis, political theory, political economy, historical analysis, cultural studies and social policy. Priority is given to contributions which link contemporary developments in British politics to theoretical and/or historical analyses. ...

By Richard Cowan. WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Democrats have a rare chance to win major concessions in a U.S. Congress they do not control by taking advantage of a battle within the Republican Party over keeping the government open. With a Friday deadline looming when most funding for federal agencies runs out, Democrats finally have some clout. But their power is strongest while the Republicans in Congress remain fractured and fighting. The showdown with Republicans could come to a head on Thursday when Democrats are expected to press their demands to President Donald Trump at a White House meeting.. For Trump, the complex, and very public, battle over the shutdown will also be a demonstration of his ability to deliver on a central 2016 campaign promise of adding billions of dollars to the U.S. military budget. That issue is at the core of Republicans behind-the-scenes negotiations with Democrats.. Most Republicans want a defense buildup. But many also want to limit government spending. While many ...
Comparative Politics: Rationality, Culture, and Structure is a completely revised second edition of the volume that guided thousands of scholars through the intellectual demands and gratifications of comparative political science. Retaining a focus on the fields research schools, it now pays parallel attention to the pragmatics of causal research. Mark Lichbach begins with a review of discovery, explanation and evidence and Alan Zuckerman argues for explanations with social mechanisms. Ira Katznelson, writing on structuralist analyses, Margaret Levi on rational choice theory, and Marc Ross on culturalist analyses, assess developments in the fields research schools. Subsequent chapters explore the relationship among the paradigms and current research: Joel Migdal examines the state; Mark Blyth adds culturalist themes to work on political economy; Etel Solingen locates the international context of comparative politics; Doug McAdam, Charles Tilly, and Sidney Tarrow address contentious politics; ...

What they seem to miss is that LePage represents a deep current of frustration with the direction the state has been taking. It is a frustration that Democrats still struggle to acknowledge or understand.. After LePages victory, Democrats promised to do some "soul searching," but that process never seemed to go very deep. Instead, they focused on perfecting their campaign mechanics and trying to drive off independents.. In 2012 they proved that with LePage as a bogeyman, they could win local elections, retaking control of the state Legislature. But winning local battles is not the same as winning widespread support. In statewide races, Democrats havent won a majority since George Mitchell left office.. Many Democrats say thats all the fault of independents, but could it be that there are more independents running because Democrats havent responded to what the public is asking for?. The answer to that question would require some real soul-searching by Democrats. Without it, they may defeat ...
The word which most frequently comes to mind when thinking of Congress is "dysfunctional." Some go even further and say the system as a whole is broken, generally when they do not get what they wanted. As Mickey Edwards (Republican Representative from OK-5 1977-1993, who voted for Barack Obama in 2008) writes in the July-August 2011 edition of The Atlantic, Congressional leaders of either party readily admit that their goal is to elect more of their own kind, and prevent the election of the other---- in other words, to seek partisan advantage, rather than to address the serious problems facing the country. As I have said elsewhere, political parties are never mentioned in the Constitution; there is no Article IV for political parties, following Article I (Legislative), Article II ( Executive), and Article III (Judicial)---- actually, Article IV is miscellaneous, like "full-faith-and-credit." Yet, we have turned over our entire election system to political parties, which are ad hoc and ...
Across the nations capital, perplexed political pundits have been rubbing their chins wondering what has happened to the Democrats, who were supposed to quiver in fear of the victorious George W. Bush and his Republican congressional majority. Instead, the minority party has been picking - and even winning - some fights. The Washington Post put the mystery on Page One with the headline, "Unexpectedly, Capitol Hill Democrats Stand Firm." [April 25, 2005]. The Post story said, "Democrats were supposed to enter the 109th Congress meek and cowed, demoralized by Novembers election losses and ready to cut deals with Republicans who threatened further campaigns against obstructionists. But House and Senate Democrats have turned that conventional wisdom on its head.". The mystery is, how did this happen? How did the Democrats find their voice and gain the upper hand over Bush on a number of issues: Social Security, his right-wing judicial appointments, the Terri Schiavo case, Tom DeLays ethics mess ...
This report provides a comprehensive political economy analysis of contemporary Malawi. The country epitomises the primacy of patrimonial politics - including endemic corruption - with a powerful presidency at the helm and a weak legislature, although with a largely independent judiciary. Political parties, barely distinguishable in terms of policies and ideology, are dominated by strong personalities whose regional and ethnic provenance influence voter preferences. Political clientelism, characterised by informal decision-making, trumps sound economic policy formulation and implementation, despite purported efforts to reform and build institutions based on legal-rational Weberian principles. This inhibits long-term transformation of the ailing agrarian economy vulnerable to climate change. The report recounts salient features of social sectors such as education and health, and highlights the burden posed by high population growth rates on resources and social services. Improvements have been ...

Food price volatility is one of the major challenges facing the global agricultural system today. This was most vividly illustrated during the global food crisis of 2007-9 when price spikes occurred for key staple food commodities-such as wheat, rice, maize, and soybeans. Given the variety of reactions by governments of countries experiencing similar food price shocks, the 2007-9 crisis offered an excellent natural experiment for generating knowledge on responses to price volatility in particular and on the political economy of agricultural policy-making more generally. This book contains the wealth of collaborative research by a global team of experts on food price policy-the research was undertaken on a sizeable group of low- and middle-income countries that were highly affected by the 2007-9 food crisis. The central aim of the study is to uncover which political economy factors-ranging from the constellation of different interest groups to the nature of political institutions-explain variations in
Posted on 02/13/2013 5:27:09 PM PST by neverdem. A team of political scientists and neuroscientists has shown that liberals and conservatives use different parts of the brain when they make risky decisions, and these regions can be used to predict which political party a person prefers. The new study suggests that while genetics or parental influence may play a significant role, being a Republican or Democrat changes how the brain functions. Dr. Darren Schreiber, a researcher in neuropolitics at the University of Exeter, has been working in collaboration with colleagues at the University of California, San Diego on research that explores the differences in the way the brain functions in American liberals and conservatives. The findings are published Feb. 13 in the journal PLOS ONE. In a prior experiment, participants had their brain activity measured as they played a simple gambling game. Dr. Schreiber and his UC San Diego collaborators were able to look up the political party registration of ...
Abstract: Afghanistans presidential election took place on September 28, 2019, with less than 2 million people participating out of 9.7 million registered voters. Taking into consideration Afghanistans total population of 35 million, the turnout was a historic low-a problem further amplified by the fact that the government poured a huge amount of financial and human resources into election preparation. The main explanation for such low turnout is twofold. On the one hand, security threats such as suicide attacks or gun violence-which reached their peak during the presidential election campaigns-deterred many people from going to polling stations. On the other hand, Afghans have become wary about determining their own political fate because, for decades, regional and international powers have steered the political wheel in Afghanistan, rather the people. After four months, election results have still not been announced, leading to further speculation and anxiety among a population which has ...

This election was unique in that electors cast votes for four men who had been or would become President of the United States: current President Martin Van Buren; President-elect William Henry Harrison; Vice President-elect John Tyler, who would succeed Harrison upon his death; and James K. Polk, who received one electoral vote for vice president, and who would succeed Tyler in 1845. 42.4% of the voting age population voted for Harrison, the highest percentage in the history of the United States up to that time.[1]. The 67-year-old Harrison was the oldest US president elected until Ronald Reagan, followed by Donald Trump in 2016. Harrison died little more than a month after his inauguration. His vice president John Tyler succeeded him, though no law at the time precisely outlined the details of presidential succession, and Tylers precedent of assuming the full office was followed by convention until ratification of the Twenty-fifth Amendment in 1967.. The choice of Tyler for Vice President ...
The Fox era is over, just as the epoch of his predecessor, Ernesto Zedillo of the PRI, saw the beginning of his own partys end of dominance in the mid-term elections of 1997 when it lost, for the first time in 67 years, the lower house of Congress. Zedillos final three years were a nightmare for that presidency, and Fox is about to get his.. The center no longer holds in Mexican politics: The vacuum invites open rebellion from all sides, especially from below. There are, as we type, old alliances falling, new alliances forming, a fighting spirit rising from an outraged populace, and the U.S. Embassy has lost its 35-year dominance over Mexican politics.. But the fall of Fox (and PAN) does not necessarily mean the rise of any other political party. Rather, the 2003 election more likely marks the implosion of the political party system resulting from an overdose of money counted not in pesos, but in dollars. The three major political parties in Mexico are now heading toward their own internal ...

While the vote may not have a decisive influence on foreign policy, which is set by Khamenei, the election of a hardliner could harm Irans global image and further deter foreign trade and investment seen as vital to rebuilding the economy.. According to the last poll conducted by Ippo group, Rohani is credited with 60 percent of the vote but Raisi can count on the renouncement of Mohammad Bagher Ghalibaf, conservative candidate and actual mayor of Teheran to fill the gap and thereby avoid a Rohani victory in the first round.. As Irans incumbent President Rouhani pledges to reduce the countrys worldwide isolation and grant more freedoms at home, his opponent Raisi is a jurist and Shiite cleric who studied at the feet of Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei..

Heres the latest of our news bulletins from the ongoing crisis at Japans Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant.. Upcoming National Elections. Campaigning for Japans Lower House of Parliament elections-scheduled for Sunday, December 16-has moved into full swing, but the outcome of the contest remains uncertain. Although current polling shows that the ruling Democratic Party of Japan (DPJ) will likely be knocked from power, analysts say that the large number of undecided voters, lack of clarity in party platforms, and disorganization of newly-emerging third parties may result in no one party having a majority in the Lower House. Etsushi Tanifuji, professor of political science at Waseda University, notes, "I think there will be no true winner in this election because the Diet will still be divided no matter what. This means this is a transitional election and not the ultimate decider." He added, "This is an extremely unfortunate election for the voters because everything is so undecided-from ...
New York) - Afghan President Hamid Karzai should take urgent action to fight child marriage and domestic violence or risk further harm to development and public health in Afghanistan, Human Rights Watch said today in a letter to the president.. In the 15-page briefing paper, "Afghanistan: Ending Child Marriage and Domestic Violence," Human Rights Watch highlights the health and economic consequences of marriage under age 18 and violence against women and girls. Karzai, who is barred by term limits from running in the April 2014 presidential election, should make full enforcement of the 2009 Law on the Elimination of Violence Against Women (the EVAW Law) a priority for his last year in office.. "President Karzais signing of the violence against women law in 2009 ushered in vital protections against child marriage and domestic violence," said Liesl Gerntholtz, womens rights director at Human Rights Watch. "By ensuring the law is enforced, Karzai would leave a lasting legacy of support for the ...
Oral health advocates are closely watching Capitol Hill.. Many are worried about the future of childrens dental benefits under proposed Republican plans to repeal or replace the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA).. Pediatric dental benefits were among the essential health benefits (EHBs) mandated for inclusion in private insurance packages sold on state insurance exchanges under Obamacare. Millions of children also became entitled to public dental coverage through Medicaid expansion under the ACA. President Barack Obama also added a guaranteed dental benefit for children of the working poor to the Childrens Health Insurance Program (CHIP).. Such measures have contributed to "sharp declines in the rate of uninsured children," noted policy analyst Deborah Vishnevsky in a post at the Childrens Dental Health Projects Teeth Matter blog.. But under some ACA repeal-and-replace proposals, these gains may be short-lived, Vishnevsky concluded.. For example, the Patient Freedom Act ...
Since President Obama repealed research restrictions on human embryonic stem cells (hESCs) in 2009, hESC research has expanded significantly. Before the repeal there were 20 hESC-endorsed lines available for government research funding, now there are 128.. While government funding has been more accessible, investors have still been leery of investing in stem cell companies that use hESCs. There is still a great deal of concern regarding the political environment for this kind of research and many are concerned that if President Obama does not get reelected in 2012 that government funding will again be drastically reduced and that many hESC companies will not be able to survive the cuts. Although the increase in hESC lines available for government funded research has given a boost to the industry, other non-embryonic stem cell work is still funded at a significantly higher rate. According to a recent article in Bloomberg titled "Embryonic Stem-Cell Approvals Rise," the National Institutes of ...

North Korea attacked a tiny island in South Korea that lies in the Yellow Sea close to the countries maritime border. The hour-long artillery barrage killed four people and flattened neighbourhoods and was described by Ban Ki-moon, the UN secretary-general, as "one of the gravest incidents since the end of the Korean war". South Koreas response was restrained. As the world expressed outrage at the Norths actions, America sent an aircraft carrier to join a flotilla of warships due to take part in a military exercise with South Korea. See article. Days earlier, an American scientist reported that North Korea had shown him a uranium-enrichment facility at the Yongbyon complex that contained 2,000 centrifuges, which the scientist said could be converted to produce nuclear weapons.
