Abstract: Positive school environments affect students’ academic perform and provide protective factors for students’ victimization in school. However, school official perceptions of students’ problems behavior have not been considered to assess performance and security of students. This study will examine the effect of officials’ perceived student problem behaviors as the school level factor on students’ academic performance and victimization using TIMSS 2011. I propose hierarchical linear models of perceived problem behaviors in school as providing a negative environment toward the individual student level of academic performance (a measure of math test score) and student’s reported victimization among Asian, American, and European countries. Further implications for research in relation to country-specific national school system will be discussed.

Abstract: In 1999, the French National Assembly inserted a requirement of gender parity into the constitution of the Fifth Republic, thereby reinterpreting universal republicanism, the principle dating back to 1792 that each deputy represents the entire nation along with a particular constituency. Political parties, charged with implementing parity, secured the election of 109 women into the thirteenth Fifth Republic National Assembly (2007 – 2012), far from half, but a significant increase over previous legislatures. What difference, if any, has it made to legislative functioning to have women comprise just short of a fifth of the Assembly? This paper looks at all 109 women, plus 109 male deputies chosen randomly, to compare backgrounds, participation in the work of the Assembly, and attention to “women’s issues” from January 2011 through May 2012. Because most women deputies sit on the left and usually vote with their group, gender does not trump those affiliations, but the presence of women has expanded the legislative agenda to more issues of concern to women. Justification of the principle of “mirror representation” requires evidence of consequences if a legislative body looks more like the nation whose sovereignty it exercises.

Abstract: This article presents the results of a personality analysis of participants of mass protest activities and rallies that took place in Russia in 2011-2012, mostly in Moscow. In contemporary Russian reality this kind of large-scale protest rallies came as a surprise for a lot of people. Non-parliamentary opposition has always been protesting but in the last almost 20 years it has never had so many followers and has never set a goal of having 100 000 people going into the streets. So, who are those people, what is their ideology, what are their values, motifs and goals? The answers to these questions are presented by the results of our research.
During the survey we have interviewed 30 activists of the oppositional movement in St Petersburg, Moscow, Mariy El Republic and North Caucuses Republics (Dagestan, North Ossetia and Kabardino-Balkariya). In Moscow and St Petersburg we have analysed the values of participants of “#OccupyAbay” camp on Chistoprudny boulevard using Schwartz’s method (50 participants). The control groups were students of the faculty of psychology of St Petersburg State University, high school students, students of the Ministry of Internal Affairs University, students of the Polytechnical University of St Petersburg and officers of the Military University of Mozhayskiy (100 participants in total). We have also applied a projective method – a drawing test, when the participants of the oppositional camp were asked to draw a self-portrait.
As a result of the study we can state that the majority of the participants of the oppositional activities of 2011-2012 represent a brand new social group that was never present in Russian political space before and that has a set of specific psychological characteristics.

Abstract: Using content analysis, the paper will examine how the ‘Kukuriku’ government has been promoting social networks as the most important channel of communication while at the same time denying the importance of ‘traditional’ channels. Although the drive for transparency has been promoted as the sole reason for such communication strategy, I shall argue that the case is exactly the opposite: social networks, originally conceived as a platform for open and transparent communication, are being endorsed mostly to ensure maximum control over the messages conveyed from the government to the public.

5. Casique, Francisco. "Reading Frames: The 2011-2012 Pelican Bay Hunger Strikes and Popular Newspaper Coverage" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the ASC Annual Meeting, Palmer House Hilton, Chicago, IL, Nov 14, 2013 <Not Available>. 2019-12-09 <>

Abstract: From 2011-2012, the men incarcerated inside the Security Housing Unit (SHU) at Pelican Bay State Prison (PBSP) – one of three super-maximum security prisons in California – initiated two separate hunger strikes to call popular attention to the extreme conditions of their capture inside the SHU. Over the course of several prisoner-led actions during this time, the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation gave minimal concessions. While the movement to reform/abolish the SHU is still afoot, media attention on the matter has been light and sporadic.

This paper will look at several California’s major newspapers – the Los Angeles Times, San Jose Mercury News, San Francisco Chronicle, San Diego Union-Tribune, and Sacramento Bee – and conduct a textual analysis to measure the ways in which the hunger strike was framed popularly. I will place close attention to the voices of social movement actors, weighing their frame against the type of coverage afforded in each newspaper. This paper’s greater implications include but are not limited to, the economy of news media, and the use of frames for social movements that involve highly marginalized groups.
