"Getting into the Voting Rights Act: The Availability of Translated Registration Materials and its Impact on Minority Voter Registration and Participation" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the American Political Science Association, Hyatt Regency Chicago and the Sheraton Chicago Hotel and Towers, Chicago, IL, Aug 30, 2007 <Not Available>. 2019-04-23 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p211716_index.html>

Abstract: Given the centrality of the Voting Rights Act for the incorporation of ethnic /racial minorities into American electoral politics, we know remarkably little about the implementation of the act at the state and local level. This paper 1) examines voter access for language minorities under Section 203 of the VRA, which guarantees registration and election materials will be made available in select languages other than English in covered jurisdictions; and 2) analyzes original data, collected from 96 covered counties in 15 states, on the actual availability, determined by on-site field visits, of translated registration materials; and 3) determines the impact the availability of translated registration materials on minority voter registration and electoral turnout, using data on registration and voting data for Spanish-surnamed voters by county, supplemented by Census data.

Abstract: Abstract: This paper evaluates the level of economic resources across single mother household structures to test the hypothesis that household structures is closely linked to the economic wellbeing of children. The main contribution that this paper makes is in addressing two key issues that have a profound impact on children’s well-being: household structure and household resources. First, this paper identifies diverse types of household structures and demonstrates that variations made to household structures that extend single mother households beyond the nuclear household unit consisting of children and one parent have important implications for the economic wellbeing of children. Extensions and variations to the basic household unit may be economically viable alternatives to married couple households that improve the economic wellbeing of children. Second, the paper is critical of the official U.S. definition of poverty and introduces a non-conventional indicator of children’s wellbeing by drawing on a measure of income that accounts for public transfers and private holdings. This measure better captures the level of resources at the disposal of household members that may be used on children. To conduct this analysis, this paper draws on data from the 2001 March Supplement of the Current Population Survey.

Abstract: This study uses data from the National Education Longitudinal Study (NELS) to investigate the effects of teen parents’ gender and social and financial resources at age 18 on their educational attainment at age 26. A resource-based perspective is proposed to account for differences in education. Results from regression analyses show that material resources significantly predict teen parents' future educational attainment. Gender greatly affects the division of labor among teen fathers and mothers between child care and paid work. Teenage parents in traditional gender roles in terms of child care and paid work suffer the most in their future education. The results provide support for the resource-based approach and call into question the gender-segregated study designs that are prevalent in the literature. I discuss policy implications of the findings and make suggestions for future research.

Abstract: American lawyers are often criticized for stinting on their responsibilities for public service; nevertheless, their uncompensated provision of legal services to poor people, or pro bono work, provides more than a third of available civil legal assistance in the United States. In an empirical analysis of variation across states in the number of paid and unpaid civil legal assistance lawyers relative to the size of the poor population, I find that availability of legal services to poor people is most powerfully predicted by funding for legal services for the poor. The second most important factor is the proportion of a state's legal profession that participates in organized pro bono programs. Pro bono itself appears to be encouraged by greater funding for civil legal assistance. Net of funding and lawyers' pro bono, other aspects of states' social and political climates, such as the proportion of state residents who are Black, are also associated with the availability of civil legal assistance lawyers.

Abstract: Right to Health and Human Experimentation: the Reasonable Availability of Drugs in Developing Countries.


The benefits of globalization could have been potentially enormous as a result of the growth in the sharing of ideas, cultures and the introduction of new technologies, but today it raises great concerns because those benefits are not yet accessible by millions of poor people. The recent economic and political improvements in developing countries, especially in Africa and in South Asia, are threatened by the impressive spreading of diseases. Human rights, could be the main vehicle for identifying and to solve health inequalities, if intended as a part of perspective by which they have the specific function of “taming” the effects of globalisation process. This made the accessibility to the right to health a very important topic and experimentations of new vaccines particularly urgent. The aim of the paper is to describe the right to access to medicine as a goal of development. This would led us interpret adequately some of the forecast regarding human pharmaceutical experimentations included in the international documents regulating them, particularly relating some controversial aspects, most of all the access to benefits received at the end of the pharmaceutical trials by the entire population of the country where the research was carried out. I maintain that the requirement of the reasonable availability of drugs should be interpreted and intended in a very restrictive way as a necessary benefit , although not the only one, of the experimentation on human subjects
