Manifesto Para Uma República, Paulo Ferreira Da Cunha Oct 2014

Manifesto Para Uma República, Paulo Ferreira Da Cunha

Paulo Ferreira da Cunha

Embora os Manifestos não cheguem, podem servir para clarificar ideias. O presente procura identificar algumas coisas que faltam para haver uma verdadeira República: desde a convicção democrática genuína, a formação do Povo, mesmo em Finanças Públicas, independência e convicção nos órgãos que exprimem as opiniões, desde os "media" aos partidos, à urgência de haver uma elite amiga do Povo. Sim, uma elite, não uma oligarquia, ou uma liga de snobismos. Uma república faz-se, acima de tudo, com Pessoas, e com Pessoas com valor, com dedicação e com honestidade. São as virtudes republicanas que nos faltam.


Reluctance Or Power Hunger: Whom Do Voters Prefer? A Test Of The Wary Cooperator Theory And Evolutionary Political Behavior, Timothy Collins Oct 2014

Reluctance Or Power Hunger: Whom Do Voters Prefer? A Test Of The Wary Cooperator Theory And Evolutionary Political Behavior, Timothy Collins

Timothy Collins

Do voters prefer political candidates who express reluctance to seek office, or do voters prefer candidates who express great ambition and an implicit hunger for power? This study uses an experimental design to test overall support of reluctant or power-hungry candidates, and discusses which people would select which candidate and why. While limited by the survey design, the evidence suggests that there is no significant overall mean difference for overall support of either candidate. However, personality traits and the degree to which participants perceived certain descriptive attributes of the candidates both play a role in vote likelihood and candidate favorability ...


Creatures Of Incoherence: Dissecting The Drivers, History, And Cognition Of Attitudinal Incongruence In The American Body Politic, Timothy Collins Aug 2014

Creatures Of Incoherence: Dissecting The Drivers, History, And Cognition Of Attitudinal Incongruence In The American Body Politic, Timothy Collins

Timothy Collins

Most American conservatives and liberals wield contradictory political attitudes. This dissertation explores what drives this “attitudinal incongruence.” First, I define and operationalize my terminology and situate the topic within social and political psychology to formulate my central model and theory of ideologically asymmetrical application of (1) individuals’ psychological and cognitive traits, and (2) individuals’ social identity and environmental traits. This leads to the overarching hypothesis that conservatives’ incongruities are more strongly driven by internal forces, and liberals’ by external forces. The central model is then demonstrated in a broad historical overview of attitudinal incongruence in America. The central tenets of ...


Is Israel’S Operation Protective Edge Justified?, Raphael Cohen-Almagor Jul 2014

Is Israel’S Operation Protective Edge Justified?, Raphael Cohen-Almagor

raphael cohen-almagor

While I think it is too early to evaluate whether this round of hostilities is morally just in terms of jus in bello, the means employed in the conduct of war, I think Operation Protective Edge is justified in terms of jus ad bellum, i.e., the reasons that brought about this war. I presume a lot will be written about Israel’s conduct of war, enough to fill volumes. Here I clarify my position and its underlying principles.

History In The Making: Tunisia's Revolution, Nathaniel Greenberg May 2014

History In The Making: Tunisia's Revolution, Nathaniel Greenberg

Nathaniel Greenberg

ON THE NIGHT of January 24, 2011, I sat smoking shisha and sipping tea at a coffee shop in the downtown Cairo neighborhood of Lazoghly, just blocks from Tahrir Square. The Tunisian revolution had reached a crescendo, but there was little talk of it in this largely working-class neighborhood. With rumors spreading that protests were planned for the coming day, I asked some of the regulars if they thought Egypt could go the way of Tunisia. It was a laughable query. Egypt was too divided, they said, Mubarak too powerful. The following day seemed to confirm their skepticism. No one ...


El Debate En Torno A La Cientificidad De La Ciencia Política, Fernando Barrientos Del Monte Mar 2014

El Debate En Torno A La Cientificidad De La Ciencia Política, Fernando Barrientos Del Monte

Fernando Barrientos Del Monte

En este breve ensayo se presentan y discuten algunos de los argumentos que han precedido el debate en torno al estatus y cientificidad de la Ciencia Política contemporánea. Desde principios del siglo XX quienes pusieron las bases de la disciplina tenían dudas sobre su grado de autonomía respecto de otras ciencias sociales, su objeto de estudio y la metodología que la distinguiera de otras ciencias sociales. La revolución conductista de los años 50 del siglo XX significó un parteaguas en el desarrollo de la Ciencia Política al poner los cimientos de su ...

The Path To Regulation Of Small Unmanned Aerial Vehicles In The United States, Jeremy Straub, Joe Vacek

Jeremy Straub

This poster presents an overview of proposed regulations that are presented in [1] related to a re-vised approach to small Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV) regulation in the United States. Prospective strategies for enhancing UAV regulation are consid-ered as is the pathway to develop and implement these regulations. The benefits of changing the UAV regulatory regime are discussed, on both a user/prospective user and societal scale.


Policy Briefing: Addressing Migrant Bodies On Europe’S Southern Frontier. An Agenda For Research And Practice, Simon Robins, Iosif Kovras, Anna Vallianatou Jan 2014

Policy Briefing: Addressing Migrant Bodies On Europe’S Southern Frontier. An Agenda For Research And Practice, Simon Robins, Iosif Kovras, Anna Vallianatou

Iosif Kovras

In recent years thousands of undocumented migrants have died in shipwrecks at the coasts of Greece, Spain and Italy in their effort to enter the EU. This brief draws on field research on the Greek island of Lesbos, one of the key entry points of migrants to the EU that has seen repeated incidents of deadly shipwrecks. The note underlines the gaps and flaws in the policies pursued by local, national and EU authorities. Research shows that although several local agencies engage with the problem, none assumes responsibility. It reveals the absence of any provision for identification of victims or ...

México 2013: Acuerdos, Reformas Y Descontento, Daniel Añorve, Fernando Barrientos Jan 2014

México 2013: Acuerdos, Reformas Y Descontento, Daniel Añorve, Fernando Barrientos

Daniel Añorve

Se describen los eventos políticos más relevantes en México durante 2013, primer año del gobierno de la alternancia con la presidencia del Partido Revolucionario Institucional. La correlación de fuerzas fue favorable al PRI, partido que gobierna también la mayoría de los municipios y estados en el país, y que mantiene una mayoría relativa en ambas Cámaras del Congreso y en más de la mitad de las legislaturas locales. El “Pacto por México”, firmado por el Presidente y los líderes de los tres principales partidos, definió el rumbo de una serie de reformas en diversos ámbitos económicos y políticos, pero generaron ...
