Gender, Displacement And Transitional Justice, Sinead McGrath 2017 University College Dublin

Gender, Displacement And Transitional Justice, Sinead Mcgrath

The Social Practice of Human Rights: Charting the Frontiers of Research and Advocacy

In the past fifteen years, there has been huge emphasis on the need for gendered mechanisms dealing with both forced migration and peacebuilding. The UN landmark resolution on Women, Peace and Security (S/RES/1325) and the gender-mainstreaming of the 1951 Refugee Convention have urged all actors to increase the participation of women in peacebuilding and their protection in instances of displacement. An underdeveloped link between these issues has not been addressed by the academic community, particularly when looking at societies in transition and the relationship of displaced women to international migration organisations in the context of transitional justice. This ...


Interrogating Rights: How The United States Is Not Complying With The Racial Equality Treaty, Malia Lee Womack 2017 Ohio State University - Main Campus

Interrogating Rights: How The United States Is Not Complying With The Racial Equality Treaty, Malia Lee Womack

The Social Practice of Human Rights: Charting the Frontiers of Research and Advocacy

In 1994, the United States ratified the United Nations’ core anti-racism treaty, ICERD. Although it has been more than two decades since the United States became a member to the multilateral agreement, a wide range of scholarship determines that the nation is not in compliance with the treaty. Little of this research focuses on gender. This paper intervenes with the research by conducting a gendered analysis, with a focus on African American women, of key areas where the US is not meeting its duties to the multilateral agreement.

This manuscript proves that, first, the United States does not comply with ...


Indigenous Rights In The Trump Era, Tereza M. Szeghi 2017 University of Dayton

Indigenous Rights In The Trump Era, Tereza M. Szeghi

The Social Practice of Human Rights: Charting the Frontiers of Research and Advocacy

This paper examines the ways in which the Dakota Access Pipeline and the related protests were divergently covered in mainstream versus alternative news sources and what this divergent coverage suggests about the current status of American Indian affairs and the role of American Indians in the U.S. cultural imaginary. Moreover, the paper will address the status of American Indian tribal sovereignty in the Trump era more broadly, with particular focus on American Indians' treaty-related rights to self-determination in the use of their lands.


Construction Of The Victims Of Human Rights Violation: The Case Of The Erased Residents Of Slovenia, Barbara Gornik 2017 Science and Research Centre of Koper

Construction Of The Victims Of Human Rights Violation: The Case Of The Erased Residents Of Slovenia, Barbara Gornik

The Social Practice of Human Rights: Charting the Frontiers of Research and Advocacy

In 1992, during the process of gaining national independence, the Slovenian government unlawfully erased 25,671 individuals, mainly citizens of other republics of former Yugoslavia,from the Slovenian Register of Permanent Residents. These individuals, who later become known as the erased, became irregular foreigners; nevertheless, many of them continued to live in Slovenia for more than a decade without enjoying basic human rights.

In 2012 the European Court of Human Rights in the case of Kurić and others vs. Republic of Slovenia held unanimously that there had been a violation of the 8th, 13th and 14th Articles of the European ...


Economic Rights In Catholic Social Teaching, Andrew Beauchamp, Jason Heron 2017 Wright State University

Economic Rights In Catholic Social Teaching, Andrew Beauchamp, Jason Heron

The Social Practice of Human Rights: Charting the Frontiers of Research and Advocacy

Catholic social teaching has a vision of the economy that is very closely aligned with the tradition of civil humanism, dating at least from the Italian Renaissance. In the course of contemporary discussion of economic concerns, Catholic social teaching often asserts human rights in and related to the economic sphere. However, it regards these economic imperatives not in terms of an autonomous, rights-bearing individualism, but rather within the thick web of relationships characterized by civil virtues, including reciprocity and gratuitousness.

Thus the Church conceptualizes the economy as part of a larger social ambit that includes fundamental social virtues. This vision ...


C-1 Truth About The Seven Trumpets, Kyung Ran Yang 2017 Andrews University

C-1 Truth About The Seven Trumpets, Kyung Ran Yang

Celebration of Research and Creative Scholarship

If the major event of Christ entering the final phase of His ministration in 1844 was misinterpreted as His Second Coming, should we not reconsider the interpretation of the Seven Trumpets also? The question about the accuracy and relevance of the historical interpretation has to be reassessed because the Seven Trumpets message is housed by the ministry of Jesus in the heavenly sanctuary.

In believing the historical account, we almost lost Jesus. What I mean by this is that in this flawed explanation that God is judging the nations that are oppressing His church, our focus is taken away from ...

Adda F. Howie: "America’S Outstanding Woman Farmer", Nancy Unger 2017 Santa Clara University

Adda F. Howie: "America’S Outstanding Woman Farmer", Nancy Unger

Nancy Unger

In 1894, forty-two-year-old Milwaukee socialite Adda F. Howie seemed a very unlikely candidate to become one of the most famous women in America. And yet by 1925, Howie, the first woman to serve on the Wisconsin State Board of Agriculture, had long been “recognized universally as the most successful woman farmer in America.”1 Howie’s rise to fame came at a time when the widely accepted ideas about gender were divided into the “man’s world” of business, power, and money, and the “woman’s world” devoted to family and home. Yet Howie, rather than being vilified for succeeding ...

Solidarita Housing Estate In Its European Context, Kimberly E. Zarecor 2017 Iowa State University

Solidarita Housing Estate In Its European Context, Kimberly E. Zarecor

Kimberly E. Zarecor

Europe just after World War II was a damaged environment. Many of its cities had been devastated and people suffered tremendously across the continent. Millions were dead, millions displaced or sick, and millions more were being forcibly relocated to new territories during waves of expulsions. According to United Nations figures, more than 8.8 million housing units had been destroyed in eighteen European countries during the war; at least another 5.6 million units were uninhabitable. This represented one out of every nine units extant in 1939.2 By 1947, the Cold War was underway as the United States and ...

Use Of Social Networking Services For Marketing Art Museums, Te-Lin Chung, Sara Marcketti, Ann Marie Fiore

Telin Chung

he purpose of this study was to explore the use of social networking services (SNS) by art museums and the effectiveness of SNS as marketing tools. Staff members responsible for SNS from 12 art museums in the Midwestern United States were interviewed to gain an in-depth understanding of SNS usage and their perceptions of SNS effectiveness. We identified three distinct marketing applications for which SNS were being used: building awareness, engaging with the community, and networking. Based on analysis of the data, three marketing strategies using SNS were proposed for cultivating relationships with visitors. Other recommendations included incorporating SNS into ...

A Reevaluation Of The Damage Done To The United States By Soviet Espionage, April Pickens 2017 James Madison University

A Reevaluation Of The Damage Done To The United States By Soviet Espionage, April Pickens

James Madison Undergraduate Research Journal (JMURJ)

Popular opinion and many historians portray the effects of Soviet espionage on the United States as disastrous. Although covert Soviet efforts undeniably harmed America, their extent and gravity has been greatly exaggerated. This paper evaluates primary and secondary sources on the subject to strike a delicate balance between minimizing and inflating the effects of Soviet activities. It acknowledges that espionage did some damage, but questions the legal status, extent, and effect of much of the Soviets’ “stolen” information, ultimately arguing that most Soviet espionage was actually more harmful to the Soviet Union than to the United States.

“Cultivating Leaders of Indiana” was developed to establish connections between the Purdue student body and the Frankfort, Indiana, community. By engaging high school students in workshops that focused on local, national, and global identities, the goal of the project was to encourage students to appreciate their individuality and to motivate them to translate their skills into a global perspective. Moreover, workshops centering on themes such as culture, citizenship, media, and education were designed to empower project participants to embrace their sense of social value and responsibility, not only in their immediate communities, but also globally.
