White Supremacy, Police Brutality, And Family Separation: Preventing Crimes Against Humanity Within The United States, Elena Baylis 2022 University of Pittsburgh School of Law

White Supremacy, Police Brutality, And Family Separation: Preventing Crimes Against Humanity Within The United States, Elena Baylis

Articles

Although the United States tends to treat crimes against humanity as a danger that exists only in authoritarian or war-torn states, in fact, there is a real risk of crimes against humanity occurring within the United States, as illustrated by events such as systemic police brutality against Black Americans, the federal government’s family separation policy that took thousands of immigrant children from their parents at the southern border, and the dramatic escalation of White supremacist and extremist violence culminating in the January 6, 2021 attack on the U.S. Capitol. In spite of this risk, the United States does ...


Effects Of Military And Economic Aid On Terrorism: A Long- And Short-Term Analysis, Haley Parker 2021 Utah State University

Effects Of Military And Economic Aid On Terrorism: A Long- And Short-Term Analysis, Haley Parker

All Graduate Theses and Dissertations

This paper asks whether U.S.aid reduces terrorism. Foreign assistance may be of two types: socio-economic aid (aims to address the root causes of terrorism by improving health care, education, justice systems, infrastructure, etc. in the recipient country) and military aid (designed to fight terrorism with force and manifests as military operations in a recipient country). Most countries receive both military aid and socio-economic US aid for long spells of time. This is why this research asks: 1) how economic and military types of aid influence terrorism over time, and 2) whether and how economic aid and military types ...


Gender And Political Incentives: Examining The Applicant Pool Under Merit Selection, Logan M. Loftis 2021 Utah State University

Gender And Political Incentives: Examining The Applicant Pool Under Merit Selection, Logan M. Loftis

All Graduate Theses and Dissertations

Merit selection is a judicial selection system for when a state’s constitution or statute directs an independent nominating commission to evaluate applicants as a precursor to gubernatorial appointment. The initial process to fill a judicial vacancy under merit selection has three steps: application, nomination, and appointment. Proponents of the selection system insist that by de-emphasizing politics and highlighting qualifications, judicial diversification will be more likely to increase under merit selection. Yet, there is not a clear consensus as to whether merit selection systematically engenders a more diverse bench.

In this thesis, I explore whether women are less likely to ...


The Role Of Social Movements In Female Candidacy Decisions, Meg Elizabeth Rasmussen 2021 Utah State University

The Role Of Social Movements In Female Candidacy Decisions, Meg Elizabeth Rasmussen

All Graduate Theses and Dissertations

The study of the impact of the 2017 Women’s March and women’s feelings towards President Donald Trump on female candidacy in the 2018 midterm elections was conducted to observe the emergence of new pathways to candidacy and further understanding political ambition in women. This closely follows social movement literature on political opportunities and changes in mobilizing structures as well as literature on nascent political ambition. Understanding the things that encourage more women to run for office can help increase descriptive representation in the United States and create a more representative democracy.

The methods of observing the phenomenon of ...

An Overview Of Life And Works Of Jami & His Perception Of Love, LEYLA HAJIMEHDITAJER 2021 Help University Malaysia

An Overview Of Life And Works Of Jami & His Perception Of Love, Leyla Hajimehditajer

Journal of Islamic and Middle Eastern Multidisciplinary Studies

Abd al-Rahman Jami (817/1414- 898/1492) is regarded as the last grand classical poet of Persian literature and a great Sufi of his time. Towards the end of his life, he compiled his Divan in which one can trace his life pattern that he has divide into three main phases. These include: 1) the period of his childhood and early phases of education, which is reported in Fātiḥah al-Shabāb; 2) his mid-life phase as elaborated in Wāsiṭah al-‘Aqd; and, 3) the last stage of his life, discussed in Khātimah al-Ḥayāt. In the latter, Jami tends to evaluate his ...


The Deregulation Deception, Cary Coglianese, Natasha Sarin, Stuart Shapiro 2021 University of Pennsylvania Carey Law School

The Deregulation Deception, Cary Coglianese, Natasha Sarin, Stuart Shapiro

Faculty Scholarship at Penn Law

President Donald Trump and members of his Administration repeatedly asserted that they had delivered substantial deregulation that fueled positive trends in the U.S. economy prior to the COVID pandemic. Drawing on an original analysis of data on federal regulation from across the Trump Administration’s four years, we show that the Trump Administration actually accomplished much less by way of deregulation than it repeatedly claimed—and much less than many commentators and scholars have believed. In addition, and also contrary to the Administration’s claims, overall economic trends in the pre-pandemic Trump years tended simply to follow economic trends ...


Globalizing Noncitizen Detention, Jarod Balentine 2021 Portland State University

Globalizing Noncitizen Detention, Jarod Balentine

Anthós

This inquiry seeks to establish that the global expansion in regimes of noncitizen detention represents a contemporary expression of imperial subjectification under Western liberalism and that such regimes serve a key role in maintaining the capitalist social order. While several efforts have been made to explain the globalization of noncitizen detention practices stemming from the United States, there exists serious shortcomings in the proposed analyses. Namely, existing literature on the subject has failed to adequately account for the history of Western imperialism and the centrality of liberalism as a political ideology in this imperial project. By intervening in the existing ...

Minority Representation On The U.S. Court Of Appeals: Do Foreign-Born Judges Influence Immigration Case Outcomes?, Bianca Ortiz-Miskimen 2021 Princeton University

Minority Representation On The U.S. Court Of Appeals: Do Foreign-Born Judges Influence Immigration Case Outcomes?, Bianca Ortiz-Miskimen

Dartmouth Undergraduate Journal of Politics, Economics and World Affairs

This paper assesses the impacts of minority representation on judicial decision- making within three-judge panels on the Ninth Circuit of the U.S. Court of Appeals. While much

of the existing literature regarding this issue has looked at racial and gender minorities in the federal judiciary, this paper seeks to identify whether the presence of foreign-born judges on appellate panels has an effect on the holdings of immigration-related cases. To address this question, I compiled an original database of 200 immigration cases decided between 2016 and 2020. The results reaffirm previous findings that panels with at least one female judge ...


Weakening Of The Nation-State By Climate Change: Water Weaponization By Isil, Annika Cole 2021 Elon University

Weakening Of The Nation-State By Climate Change: Water Weaponization By Isil, Annika Cole

Dartmouth Undergraduate Journal of Politics, Economics and World Affairs

Climate change is quickly becoming one of the biggest threats faced by the international community and has the capacity to greatly impact global security. The relationship between climate change and conflict is still unraveling; however, worsening climatic events have contributed to political instability around the world. As climate change implications become more apparent, water is less abundant due to worsening droughts and less precipitation, allowing it to become a target for groups seeking to control territory or populations. This paper examines the impact of climate change in shifting the power dynamic between states and violent non-state actors within their borders ...


Sexual Violence And Sex Trafficking: An Observation Of Developing International Law And Its Implementation, Hannah Kate Albach 2021 Pepperdine University

Sexual Violence And Sex Trafficking: An Observation Of Developing International Law And Its Implementation, Hannah Kate Albach

Dartmouth Undergraduate Journal of Politics, Economics and World Affairs

Margot Walström, Special Representative of the UN Secretary-General on Sexual Violence defines sexual violence as a "way of demonstrating power and control. It inflicts fear on the whole community. And it is unfortunately a very effective, cheap and silent weapon with a long-lasting effect on every society.” Despite the universal damage of sexual violence throughout history, international law did not begin to develop a response to such crimes until the 1990s. Worldwide fear and shame associated with atrocities of sexual violence, difficulty defining it across cultures, challenges to accurate data collection, and lack of collective action all contribute to the ...


Understanding The Unique Spatial Relations And Power Dynamics Of China’S Urban Villages, Kaitlyn Zhao 2021 Cornell University

Understanding The Unique Spatial Relations And Power Dynamics Of China’S Urban Villages, Kaitlyn Zhao

Dartmouth Undergraduate Journal of Politics, Economics and World Affairs

China’s recent history as a Communist stronghold-turned-economic-powerhouse has garnered widespread scholarly and popular attention, as its government seeks to marry economic liberalization with one-party rule, propping up the private sector while retaining the preeminence of the CCP (Chinese Communist Party). As its economy continues to grow at astounding rates and the state begins to take a more forward position on the world stage, many have deemed it an impending threat to Western hegemony. Yet focusing on China’s outward positioning obscures the many peculiarities bubbling within it. On the ground, the landscape of the country has been fundamentally transformed ...


The Radicalization Of The Far-Right In Germany And Regional Disparities In Support, Sophia Winograd 2021 Princeton University

The Radicalization Of The Far-Right In Germany And Regional Disparities In Support, Sophia Winograd

Dartmouth Undergraduate Journal of Politics, Economics and World Affairs

The radicalization of far-right political groups is becoming an increasingly dangerous problem in German politics. While Germany may be viewed as a fervent ally for liberal thought in Europe, the far-right Alternative for Germany (AfD) party is gaining substantial traction in national politics. Interestingly, the AfD has grown disproportionately by region, drawing more support from East Germany than West. The underpinnings of this trend hinge upon increased asylum being granted to Muslim immigrants and the long-held disdane by the East for the West’s economic successes. An understanding of the AfD’s popularity is integral to combating intolerance and radicalization ...


The Great Swedish Experiment, Xiaofan Gong, Michael Ratzkin 2021 Cornell University

The Great Swedish Experiment, Xiaofan Gong, Michael Ratzkin

Dartmouth Undergraduate Journal of Politics, Economics and World Affairs

As COVID-19 spread across Europe, many countries chose to implement swift and stringent lockdown measures on their populations in March 2020 by shutting down businesses and banning large public and private gatherings. Sweden, however, chose to manage the pandemic by relying on its citizens to make the best decisions for themselves and their families. This paper places Sweden’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic in a political and economic context. The paper also analyzes the country’s response and effectiveness in implementing voluntary and stepwise actions. Research finds that although measures taken to slow transmission while accounting for efforts to ...


Tracking The Tracing: A Global Investigation Of Privacy Issues In The Age Of Covid-19, Jessie Miller 2021 Claremont McKenna College

Tracking The Tracing: A Global Investigation Of Privacy Issues In The Age Of Covid-19, Jessie Miller

Dartmouth Undergraduate Journal of Politics, Economics and World Affairs

As the COVID-19 pandemic tore through the globe, policymakers grappled with two key questions. First, to what extent could new tools to collect and analyze data on a massive scale help limit the virus’s spread and, second, how would the collection of that data impact the privacy rights of individuals? This paper examines both questions and reveals how nation-specific traditions, values, and leaders shaped the delicate balance between the right to privacy and the protection of the population from COVID-19. An exploration of the surveillance techniques developed in response to the SARS and HIV pandemics reveals the growing consensus ...
