Explaining Underrepresentation: A Theory Of Precluded Interes, S Cheryan, V Plaut 2009 Berkeley Law

Explaining Underrepresentation: A Theory Of Precluded Interes, S Cheryan, V Plaut

Victoria Plaut

What processes best explain women’s underrepresentation in science, math, and engineering fields in the U.S.? Do they also explain men’s underrepresentation in the humanities? Two survey studies across two U.S. West Coast universities (N = 62; N = 614) addressed these questions in the context of two fields: one male-dominated (computer science) and the other female-dominated (English). Among a set of social predictors—including perceived similarity to the people in the field, social identity threats, and expectations of success—the best mediator of women’s lower interest in computer science and men’s lower interest in English was ...


Rethinking Adverse Possession: An Essay On Ownership And Possession, Carole Brown, Serena Williams 2009 University of North Carolina

Rethinking Adverse Possession: An Essay On Ownership And Possession, Carole Brown, Serena Williams

Serena M Williams

In the wake of the present real estate crisis, there has been prolonged discussion of the wrongdoing that led to systemic failures in the national real estate market. The mortgage crisis caught the nation’s attention because of its large scale and its rippling effect throughout the economy. Equally nefarious is the impact of adverse possession on the rights of individual property owners. While a single adverse possession does not affect the national market in the same way as the mortgage crisis did, to the individual owner, the wrongdoing, in the form of a trespass, that ripens into title, is ...

Beyond Shareholder Value: Normative Standards For Sustainable Corporate Governance, Robert Sprague 2009 University of Wyoming

Beyond Shareholder Value: Normative Standards For Sustainable Corporate Governance, Robert Sprague

Robert Sprague

This paper explores whether the modern corporate governance model is sustainable. For many, particularly large, corporations, there is a separation between ownership and management, with an emphasis by management on short-term gains at the expense of long-term sustainability. This paper explores the role of corporate directors, particularly vis-à-vis shareholders, from an interdisciplinary perspective, analyzing legal case law as well as legal, management, and finance literature. This paper then explores emerging trends in expanding notions of corporate governance that incorporate concerns beyond just shareholders, recognizing the interrelationship between business and society. It is suggested that in order to remain viable and ...

Fifteen Years With The Norma Research Programme, Ann Numhauser-Henning

Ann Numhauser-Henning

The Norma Research Programme started out fifteen years ago – in 1996 – at the Law Faculty of Lund University with funding from the Bank of Sweden Tercentenary Foundation. The programme was initiated by me and my former colleague Professor Anna Christensen, who sadly passed away in March 2001. Norma is short for ‘Normative Development within the Social Dimension, Studies on the Normative Patterns and Their Development in the Legal Regulation of Employment, Housing, Family and Social Security from a European Integration Perspective’. The purpose of the programme was to create a research environment where basic normative patterns and their development and ...

The Economy Of Undocumented Migration: Taxation And Access To Welfare, Mats Tjernberg 2009 Selected Works

The Economy Of Undocumented Migration: Taxation And Access To Welfare, Mats Tjernberg

Mats Tjernberg

A strict division between the formal economy and the informal economy cannot be made and every economic actor has in certain situations a propensity to engage in informal economic activities. The formal, as well as informal, economy may lead to economic growth which is essential for a broad welfare policy, under which social benefits are categorized. A person’s economic contribution to a state should entail some possibility of getting economic and social benefits from it. The article shows that a person, who is liable to tax in a state, by staying in its territory, should not be excluded from ...

Revisiting Global Formulary Apportionment, Susan Morse 2009 Santa Clara University

Revisiting Global Formulary Apportionment, Susan Morse

Susan Cleary Morse

This Article examines global destination sales-based formulary apportionment ("DSFA"). It questions whether unilateral U.S. adoption of a DSFA tax would prompt other countries to follow suit, identifying on one hand factors that could encourage a productive capacity shift to the DSFA-adopting jurisdiction and on the other hand origin-based incentives such as business-to-business sales that could encourage the movement of capital investment to jurisdictions other than the adopting jurisdiction. It also analyzes several points of comparison between a globally adopted DSFA tax and the existing separate accounting corporate tax system. These include the potential of transfer pricing and other reform ...


Land Rights Issues In International Human Rights Law, Elizabeth Wickeri, Anil Kalhan 2009 Drexel University School of Law; University of California, Berkeley, School of Law

Land Rights Issues In International Human Rights Law, Elizabeth Wickeri, Anil Kalhan

Anil Kalhan

Up to one quarter of the world’s population is estimated to be landless, including 200 million people living in rural areas. For many of these people, the condition of landlessness threatens the enjoyment of a number of fundamental human rights. Access to land is important for development and poverty reduction, but also often necessary for access to numerous economic, social and cultural rights, and as a gateway for many civil and political rights. However, there is no right to land codified in international human rights law. This article, which was originally written as a briefing paper for the “Forum ...
