Abstract: There is a large gap in the literature regarding the cooperation of adolescents with police. Furthermore, there is little research available on the role of vigilante behaviour in intentions to cooperate. The current paper uses the Theory of Planned Behaviour and Emler's attitudinal theory of delinquency in exploring intentions to cooperate. In light of these theories, a model of pathways to cooperation was developed and evaluated. Specifically, the role of attitudes to police, subjective norms regarding cooperation, delinquency, and intentions to act as a vigilante in intentions to cooperate were explored. SEM indicated that the model fit the data well.

Abstract: Entrepreneurship policies have gained increasing prominence in economic development agendas in recent decades. Some policies include strategies to promote a type of economic subject that resembles the Schumpeterian entrepreneur. This article explores the historical formation, the global diffusion, and the resilience of behavioral approaches that seek to constitute entrepreneurial competencies and behaviors in the global South. Taking the Empretec as a case study, a program introduced by the United Nations to develop entrepreneurship in emerging economies, this article draws inspiration from the literatures on policy diffusion and cognitive institutional analysis to describe how behavioral approaches to entrepreneurship building came into existence, and were actively diffused throughout the global South. The article argues that the global diffusion of entrepreneurial subjects through behavioral programs involves entities and actors from different spatial-temporal orders. As time passes, behavioral approaches to entrepreneurship face increasing criticisms within academia, but the support from international governance institutions buffers these critiques and continue to legitimate an economic subject in the image created by global North scholars and institutions.

3. McGuffog, Ingrid. "Drug Treatment Seeking Behaviour: An Analysis of Behavioural Adaptations to a Third Party Policing Initiative" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the ASC Annual Meeting, Washington Hilton, Washington, DC, <Not Available>. 2019-12-11 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p516776_index.html>

Abstract: This paper examines the impact of a third party policing initiative on patterns of drug treatment seeking behaviour of users of methamphetamines over time. I use the Alcohol and Other Drug Treatment Services-National Minimum Data Set (Queensland only) from its inception in 2002 to 2007 to examine the impact of “Project Stop,” an initiative that sought to control pseudo-ephedrine point of sales from community pharmacies. The unit of analysis is closed treatment episodes for voluntary admissions to treatment for methamphetamine use. I conduct an interrupted time-series ARIMA analysis in order to model the impact of the introduction of Project Stop on behavioural adaptation to this policing intervention. I discuss the policy implications of the Project Stop initiative and discuss theoretical insights about the links between macro-level policy interventions and micro-level behavioural change.

Abstract: Nowadays Spanish democracy has less than 40 years old. As others young democracies it suffers one of the most important political problems: low indices of participation in elections and in political life in general.
Recently, some Spanish local governments are introducing different experiences of participatory budgeting in order to increase the democracy educational level of population. One of their goals is to improve people motivation to participate in community decisions. This implementation of participatory budgeting in some Andalusian towns and villages give us an interesting framework to study their influence in community empowerment and, as a consequence, in voting behaviour.
We will measure the electoral behaviour of 150 citizens of Torreperogil (Jaen, Spain). Half of them will be members of the participatory budget assemblies. The other half will be citizens of the village, but they will not be members of these assemblies and will not be involved in the process.
Our main dependent variable is the voting behaviour. We will compare the electoral behaviour in the Spanish general elections of 1999 and the next general elections (March, 2008). We hypothesize an increase in electoral behaviour as a consequence of the community politization and their assumption of control and power (empowerment).
