Global Income Inequality And The Potential For Global Democracy: A Functionalist Analysis, Andrew L. Strauss 2017 University of Dayton

Global Income Inequality And The Potential For Global Democracy: A Functionalist Analysis, Andrew L. Strauss

Andrew L. Strauss

The thesis that I wish to develop in this chapter is that a functionalist view of the development of global institutions suggests that the structural inequalities in global income that were a primary cause of the global economic crisis of 2008, and that continue to endanger the world economy, have the potential to provide the political preconditions for a global regime that can help redress those inequalities. To do so, however, such a regime must empower the less economically well off through representation, and the regime itself must have the practical ability to influence global economic policy. Such a regime ...


The Deeper Challenges Of Global Terrorism: A Democratizing Response, Andrew L. Strauss, Richard A. Falk 2017 University of Dayton

The Deeper Challenges Of Global Terrorism: A Democratizing Response, Andrew L. Strauss, Richard A. Falk

Andrew L. Strauss

The audacious and gruesome terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, along with the military response, have been the defining political events of this new millennium. The most profound challenge directed at the international community, and to all of us, is to choose between two alternative visions. What we call the traditional statist response emphasizes 'national security' as the cornerstone of human security. Centralization of domestic authority, secrecy, militarism, nationalism, and an emphasis on unconditional citizen loyalty, to her or his state as the primary organizing feature of international politics are all attributes of this approach.

Research Offers Tough Love To Improve Human Rights Practices, Joel Pruce 2017 University of Dayton

Research Offers Tough Love To Improve Human Rights Practices, Joel Pruce

Joel Pruce

We know what it means to practice a skill such as juggling or dancing, but what does it mean to "practice" human rights?

Contributions to OpenGlobalRights (OGR), since its inception, have gravitated around critique of human rights practices by focusing on advocacy and activism, cultivating debates that address the contemporary dilemmas facing human rights movements worldwide. The launch of OGR four years ago is a symptom of what I’ve referred to elsewhere as a “practice turn” in the scholarly field of human rights—one that takes human rights practice as its subject, forges space for scholar-practitioner collaboration and communication ...


International Perspectives On Privacy And Free Expression: Concepts, Conflicts, Consequences, University of Michigan Law School 2017 University of Michigan Law School

International Perspectives On Privacy And Free Expression: Concepts, Conflicts, Consequences, University Of Michigan Law School

Event Materials

This conference contributes to the energetic and transnational dialogue currently going on about privacy: How do we define it? Is it a right, an interest, a value, or something else? Privacy against what? Privacy from whom? Is privacy necessarily in tension with free expression? Or is it often an essential predicate to it? How have different political regimes answered these questions? How do entities and individuals navigate those conflicting transnational approaches?

This is the program for the conference.


From Eternity To Here: In Search Of The Origins Of Secularism, Nomi Stolzenberg 2017 BLR

From Eternity To Here: In Search Of The Origins Of Secularism, Nomi Stolzenberg

University of Southern California Legal Studies Working Paper Series

This article puts forth a hypothesis about the theological origins of liberalism and secularism that offers an alternative to standard accounts of the intellectual origins/theological foundations of liberalism and of political theology which see the two as separate and mutually exclusive. On my hypothesis, the emergency theory of the state associated with political theology and the liberal theory of the state are (or were at their point of origin) the same thing. The hypothesis is that the theory that the state must be secular (and must be founded on principles of due process and religious pluralism, which come to ...

Erisa And Graham-Cassidy: A Disaster In Waiting For Employee Health Benefits And For Dependents Under 26 On Their Parents’ Plans, Leslie Francis 2017 S.J. Quinney College of Law, University of Utah

Erisa And Graham-Cassidy: A Disaster In Waiting For Employee Health Benefits And For Dependents Under 26 On Their Parents’ Plans, Leslie Francis

Utah Law Faculty Scholarship

Graham Cassidy § 105 would repeal the ACA “employer mandate”. Although its sponsors claim that the bill will give states a great deal of flexibility, it will do nothing to help states ensure that employers provide their employees with decent health insurance; quite the reverse. It will also give employers the freedom to ignore the popular ACA requirement that allows children up to age 26 to receive coverage through their parent’ plans, at least when their parents get health insurance from their employers. Here’s why.


The Unreasonable Seizures Of Shadow Deportations, Mary Holper 2017 Boston College Law School

The Unreasonable Seizures Of Shadow Deportations, Mary Holper

Boston College Law School Faculty Papers

President Trump, during his campaign, promised a “deportation task force” to swiftly deport the eleven million undocumented noncitizens in the United States. Within his first week in office, he issued two Executive Orders calling for stricter immigration enforcement and a stronger border. The Department of Homeland Security (“DHS”) Memos implementing his interior and border enforcement executive orders indicate that DHS will use every tool to enforce the immigration laws, expanding the use of procedural tools that bypass immigration courts and ensuring that noncitizens remain detained during these “shadow” deportations.Two of these procedural tools, administrative removal and expedited removal, allow ...


Impact Of Published Articles On Trade Liberalization From 1980-2015: A Bibliometric Study, Murtala Muhammad, Nader Ale Ebrahim, Gold Kafilah Lola, Abubakar Ahmed 2017 university of Malaya

Impact Of Published Articles On Trade Liberalization From 1980-2015: A Bibliometric Study, Murtala Muhammad, Nader Ale Ebrahim, Gold Kafilah Lola, Abubakar Ahmed

Nader Ale Ebrahim

In this research, the viable impact of scholarly research on trade liberalisation by a bibliometric approach from 1980-2015 is examined. The paper analysed 886 academic articles extracted from the ISI Web of Science Core Collection database. Trade liberalisation research is notably interdisciplinary, with articles principally in journals for economics, international relations, and planning development. This study found that the field became evidently viable with more than ten articles per year from 1990 – 2015. The proportion of articles with at least one citation from 1980 – 2015 is 56.43%. The top 100 articles have a minimum of 25 citations. Given this ...
