Mental Health Outcomes Of Various Types Of Fear Among University Students Who Have An Undocumented Legal Status During The Donald Trump Presidency, Liliana Campos 2021 The University of San Francisco

Mental Health Outcomes Of Various Types Of Fear Among University Students Who Have An Undocumented Legal Status During The Donald Trump Presidency, Liliana Campos

Doctoral Dissertations

Having an undocumented legal status is a risk factor for mental health conditions such as depression and anxiety among university students. Much of the literature on the experiences of university students who hold an undocumented legal status has primarily focused on better understanding the educational, social, financial, and legal challenges among undergraduate students. The literature has addressed how some of these difficulties impact components of their social and mental health wellness. Yet, there is still a dearth of research focused on further understanding the experiences of students who hold an undocumented legal status from a psychological perspective, and specifically, with ...


Toward A Feminist Ethics Of Nonviolence [Toc], Timothy J. Huzar, Clare Woodford 2021 Fordham University

Toward A Feminist Ethics Of Nonviolence [Toc], Timothy J. Huzar, Clare Woodford

Philosophy

Edited collection of original essays debating Adriana Cavarero’s feminist ethics of nonviolence. Including an original essay by Adriana Cavarero and responses from Judith Butler, Bonnie Honig, Olivia Guaraldo, Simona Forti, Christine Battersby, Lorenzo Bernini, Mark Devenney, Tim Huzar and Clare Woodford. Although inspired by Cavarero’s recent work on an ethical maternal posture of inclination the responses situate Cavarero’s argument in her wider corpus of nonviolence and uniqueness, that critiques and offers an alternative to the masculine symbolic of philosophy. This introduction endeavours to not only introduce Cavarero’s work, but to chart the journey of an increasingly ...


Military Influence On Middle Eastern Democratization Following The Arab Spring, Andrew Fleming 2021 The University of Akron

Military Influence On Middle Eastern Democratization Following The Arab Spring, Andrew Fleming

Williams Honors College, Honors Research Projects

Despite experiencing countless wars, sectarian extremism, imperialism, and authoritarian rule, very few events have impacted the Middle East more significantly than the Arab Spring. Starting in 2010, the Arab Spring marked a turning point in which the people of numerous Arabic states collectively gathered to protest and combat the oppressive regimes that had controlled the region for decades. The Spring was indicative of the strong, recurring ambitions for revolution and regime change across the Middle East, presenting the Arab nations with an opportunity to reform their states from within. For some Middle Eastern states, the Arab Spring served as a ...

Administering A Ranked-Choice Voting Election: Lessons From London, Ontario, Charlotte Kurs 2020 Western University

Administering A Ranked-Choice Voting Election: Lessons From London, Ontario, Charlotte Kurs

Centre for Urban Policy and Local Governance – Publications

To elect its mayor and council in October of 2018, the City of London, Ontario used ranked-choice voting instead of the traditional first-past-the-post system; the first Canadian city in decades to use an alternative electoral system. London’s experience as the first Ontario municipality to implement ranked-choice voting allows it to offer its experience as a lesson to other municipalities that may be considering making changes to their voting systems.

From the Ontario government’s review of the Municipal Elections Act in 2016 through to the implementation of a ranked-ballot election in 2018, this report details the experience of City ...


Have Voucher Will Relocate? Poverty Deconcentration In A Large American City, Kathy Thomas, Nicholas O. Alozie Dr. 2020 Arizona State University

Have Voucher Will Relocate? Poverty Deconcentration In A Large American City, Kathy Thomas, Nicholas O. Alozie Dr.

Journal of Public Management & Social Policy

The epic failure of fixed public housing projects supports the paradigm that poverty concentration makes poverty and the cycle of poverty intractable. Moreover, neoliberal, free-enterprise theorists interrogate the viability of the state as a provider of social goods and services and press the need for market-based schemes such as housing vouchers. However, how do you de-concentrate the poor voluntarily without government dictating residential choice? This article reports the results of the first ten years of a policy experiment leveraging a mobile voucher program to attempt to achieve voluntary dispersion and de-concentration of the poor in Phoenix, Arizona. Using Phoenix’s ...


Barber Shops, Salons, And Spas: The Complexity – And Simplicity – Of Implementing Outreach And Enrollment Contracts Under The Affordable Care Act, Michael Hatch, Rebecca Yurman, Anna A. Amirkhanyan, Jocelyn Johnston 2020 American University

Barber Shops, Salons, And Spas: The Complexity – And Simplicity – Of Implementing Outreach And Enrollment Contracts Under The Affordable Care Act, Michael Hatch, Rebecca Yurman, Anna A. Amirkhanyan, Jocelyn Johnston

Journal of Public Management & Social Policy

This article examines the implementation of The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA) with a particular focus on the states’ contracted outreach and enrollment services. Having collected administrative and perceptual data from key informants, we examined outreach and enrollment contracts in six states that have reduced the uninsured rate by at least 20% of ACA-eligible population. Our findings suggest that the complexity of the law and its structure, as well as the characteristics of contracting were, in effect, “drowned out” by clear patterns of highly collaborative implementation that involved extensive chains of diverse outreach/enrollment actors. These networks – ranging ...


Roy Cohn’S America: Conservatism, Sexual Politics, And Memory In The 21st Century, Emily Sharp 2020 Emory University

Roy Cohn’S America: Conservatism, Sexual Politics, And Memory In The 21st Century, Emily Sharp

The Macksey Journal

Roy Cohn was and remains a controversial figure known for his staunch anti-subversive practices during the Second Red Scare, his involvement with some of New York’s shadiest characters in business and politics as their legal representation, and for his sexuality and death due to AIDS complications. From the early 1970s until the mid-80s, Cohn served as the personal lawyer and mentor for real estate developer Donald Trump. In this role, Cohn helped shape how Trump perceived loyalty and his understanding of the legal system in America as a tool to use to his advantage. These, among others, are learned ...


The Nature Of Disloyalty: Attitudes Towards Treason And Exile In The Ancient Mediterranean, Matthew S. Kenny 2020 Rhodes College

The Nature Of Disloyalty: Attitudes Towards Treason And Exile In The Ancient Mediterranean, Matthew S. Kenny

The Macksey Journal

Prosecutions of treason and exile have traditionally been studied as legal phenomena bound by laws and procedures. Yet historical behavior suggests the laws, practices, and attitudes towards treason and exile were primarily motivated by attempts to maintain factional dominance and sociopolitical uniformity. This paper explores how ideas of pollution, disloyalty, and dissent demonstrate the polarized and contested nature of treason and exile in the archaic and classical periods of Athens and Rome. It also seeks to understand the extent to which these ideas contributed to the civil strife of the period. Reflecting on the divisive characteristics of these phenomena that ...

"Freedom's Price" And "Freedom's Power:" President Bush's Rhetorical Assault On The Concept Of Freedom And The Justification Of A Surveillance State, Devin M. Green 2020 The Johns Hopkins University

"Freedom's Price" And "Freedom's Power:" President Bush's Rhetorical Assault On The Concept Of Freedom And The Justification Of A Surveillance State, Devin M. Green

The Macksey Journal

In his essay "Politics and the English Language", as well as the novel 1984, George Orwell presents the ease with which language and propaganda can be used to justify atrocity. The Orwellian perspective of language exposes the ambiguous and "meaningless words" infesting the rhetoric following the terrorist attacks of September the 11th. While the rhetoric encouraging the invasion of Iraq has been justly scrutinized, there is a suspicious lack of focus on another crucial result of September the 11th. Douglass Kellner, cultural theorist and author of Bushspeak and the Politics of Lying, neglects to properly acknowledge the institution and effects ...

Influence Through Intimidation: Evidence From Business Lobbying And The Regulatory Process, Cary Coglianese, Alex Acs 2020 University of Pennsylvania Carey Law School

Influence Through Intimidation: Evidence From Business Lobbying And The Regulatory Process, Cary Coglianese, Alex Acs

Faculty Scholarship at Penn Law

Interest group influence in the policy process is often assumed to occur through a mechanism of exchange, persuasion, or subsidy. Here, we explore how business groups may also exert influence by intimidating policymakers—a form of persuasion, but one based not on the provision of policy information but of political information. We develop a theory where a business firm lobbies a regulator to communicate political information about its capacity to commit to future influence-seeking activities that would sanction the regulator. The regulator assesses the credibility of this message by evaluating the firm’s commitment to lobbying. Guided by our theory ...

Security Threats, American Pressure, And The Role Of Key Personnel: How Nato’S Defence Planning Process Is Alleviating The Burden-Sharing Dilemma, John R. Deni 2020 Strategic Studies Institute

Security Threats, American Pressure, And The Role Of Key Personnel: How Nato’S Defence Planning Process Is Alleviating The Burden-Sharing Dilemma, John R. Deni

Monographs, Books, & Publications

In 2017, for the first time since the end of the Cold War, none of the capability targets identified in NATO’s quadrennial NATO Defence Planning Process (NDPP) were left on the negotiating table. Previously, capability targets were identified by the alliance’s secretariat, but they remained unfilled as allies failed to assume responsibility for them.

This monograph examines the 2014–18 iteration of the NDPP, which represented a stunning turnaround in transatlantic burden sharing. The analysis reveals a combination of factors—the changed threat environment, political pressure from Washington, and the role of “policy entrepreneurs” working within NATO—best ...

The European Central Bank's Three-Year Long-Term Refinancing Operations (Ecb Gfc), Aidan Lawson 2020 Yale University

The European Central Bank's Three-Year Long-Term Refinancing Operations (Ecb Gfc), Aidan Lawson

Journal of Financial Crises

The announcement of the three-year Long-Term Refinancing Operations (LTROs) by the European Central Bank (ECB) on December 8, 2011, signaled the beginning of the largest ECB market liquidity programs to date. Continued and increasing liquidity-related pressures in the form of ballooning financial market credit default swap (CDS) spreads, Euro-area volatility, and interbank lending rates prompted a much more forceful ECB response than what had been done previously. The LTROs, using a repurchase (repo) agreement auction mechanism, allowed any Eurozone financial institution to tap essentially unlimited funding at a fixed rate of just 1%. Because the three-year LTROs were so similar ...

The Specifics Of The Political Analysis Of The Foreign Policy Of Muslim Countries, Guzal Kadirova

The Light of Islam

The article is devoted to the peculiarities of the foreign policy of Muslim states, where the Islamic factor plays an important role in society. It is known that the religious factor manifests itself in different ways, depending on the historical heritage, culture and characteristics of the socio-political development of the country. At the same time, it has a significant impact on the foreign policy of all Muslim states. So, the Islamic factor is present both in the state foreign policy strategy and in the form of ideology promoted by non-state actors.

In the state policy of Muslim countries, mainly the ...
