Rising Scholar: A Cycle Of Slavery: Migrant Labor And Human Rights Violations In The United Arab Emirates, Narayan Kini 2020 University of North Georgia

Rising Scholar: A Cycle Of Slavery: Migrant Labor And Human Rights Violations In The United Arab Emirates, Narayan Kini

International Social Science Review

This Rising Scholar article examines how, through a combination of insufficient laws and enforcement, the UAE government allows for the exploitation of migrant workers to prompt economic development and provide cheap labor for elite private citizens and major construction corporations, in effect creating a cycle of modern slavery. Immigrant workers are trapped in this cycle of slavery, indebted to different money lenders, and left vulnerable to exploitation due to the lack of legal protections.

The Cooperative Business Model In The Near West Side Of Milwaukee, Brendan Shine 2020 University of North Georgia

The Cooperative Business Model In The Near West Side Of Milwaukee, Brendan Shine

International Social Science Review

Cooperative economics are explored in this article through the lens of Mahatma Gandhi’s economic thought. Cooperatives seven main principles (voluntary and open membership, democratic member control, member economic participation, autonomy and independence, education/training, cooperation among cooperatives, and finally concern for community)are shown to align with Gandhi’s core economic tenets of Sarvodaya by comparing their goals. Proceeding from this, the article uses qualitative interviews to compare the lives of workers and managers of cooperative business models, nonprofit business models, and traditional business models primarily in Milwaukee, Wisconsin to see how the cooperative principles work in practice in ...


The Intersectionality Of Blackness And Disability In Hip-Hop: The Societal Impact Of Changing Cultural Norms In Music, Matthew Gavieta 2020 University of North Georgia

The Intersectionality Of Blackness And Disability In Hip-Hop: The Societal Impact Of Changing Cultural Norms In Music, Matthew Gavieta

International Social Science Review

This paper explores the conflict between reconciling Blackness and disability in individuals with multiply marginalized identities. The theoretical foundation of the Black Feminist Disability Theory reveals the scale at which disability is stigmatized in the Black community; this stigma serves as a barrier for effective intersectional activism against oppression. Through the analysis of hip-hop culture and its tropes, this paper unearths various problematic attitudes toward disability through a Black perspective. However, hip-hop also displays progressive growth, which is evident through the normalization of discussion about mental health. Furthermore, grassroots activism through organizations like Krip-Hop seek to dismantle the socially constructed ...


The Burden Of A Child: Examining The Effect Of Pregnancy On Women’S Power In Ancient Egypt And Greece, Sara Divija Varadharajulu 2020 University of North Georgia

The Burden Of A Child: Examining The Effect Of Pregnancy On Women’S Power In Ancient Egypt And Greece, Sara Divija Varadharajulu

International Social Science Review

This paper explores the effect of pregnancy on women’s access to power in ancient Greece and Egypt. It argues that the politico-economic institutions dictated the extent of a non-pregnant woman’s power in these societies, and because of this, non-pregnant women in ancient Egypt were afforded more civil freedoms than those in Greece. However, in regards to determining the power of pregnant women, sociocultural influences, such as religion, played a much bigger role. Due to the Western, female-centric view of fertility in Greece, pregnant women were allocated significantly more ideological power than usual, which is evident in their ability ...


Grandmotherhood In Ukraine: Behavioral Variation And Evolutionary Implications, Sofiya Shreyer 2020 University of Massachusetts Amherst

Grandmotherhood In Ukraine: Behavioral Variation And Evolutionary Implications, Sofiya Shreyer

Masters Theses

Grandmothers are known to increase the health and well-being of their grandchildren in many different populations. However, grandmothers may vary in their contributions based on their relatedness to their grandchildren. In some populations, maternal grandmothers decrease the risk of mortality and increase the health of their grandchildren more than paternal grandmothers. Grandmaternal influence also sometimes varies based on the gender of the grandchild. The behavioral mechanisms of grandmaternal investment are not well understood and have not been explored in the heavily intergenerational context of Eastern Europe. This study examines the behavioral variation of sixty-two Ukrainian grandmothers through interviews and a ...
