1. Sullivan, Mercer. "Ties That Bend: Exploring the Family Context of Reentry from Juvenile Incarceration" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the AMERICAN SOCIETY OF CRIMINOLOGY, Atlanta Marriott Marquis, Atlanta, Georgia, Nov 13, 2007 <Not Available>. 2019-09-22 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p201728_index.html>

Abstract: Families are the major source of social support for young people returning from incarceration in juvenile facilities. Yet these families are often under mutltiple kinds of stress, including but rarely confined to the stress of having one young person incarcerated. This paper explores dimensions of these family contexts including the range of persons defined as family by the reentering juveniles themselves, those who consider themselves family members, and those who are considered family members by parole and probation officers; the quality of relationships among these individuals; and the influences of family members on the released juveniles' experiences during reentry. The paper is based on interviews with juveniles released in New Jersey and their family members who participate in a family-oriented reentry program. The purpose of the paper is to explore the inter-relationships among the following factors: the emotional quality of the family tie; the types of social control and social support exercised through the tie; and the supports and controls provided through parole, probation, and social welfare systems.

Flexibility Provisions in the Negotiation and Design of Multilateral Environmental Agreements" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the International Studies Association 48th Annual Convention, Hilton Chicago, CHICAGO, IL, USA, Feb 28, 2007 <Not Available>. 2019-09-22 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p180989_index.html>
Publication Type: Conference Paper/Unpublished Manuscript
Abstract: This paper examines alternative hypotheses about the role of flexibility provisions in the negotiation and design of multilateral environmental agreements. It tests one of the Rational Design project's most central hypotheses, that flexibility is related to uncertainty, severity of distributional problems, and the number of relevant actors. It juxtaposes that theory with realist and constructivist understandings of design. It evaluates these hypotheses using a multi-method approach, including process tracing and quantitative comparative analysis. The paper concludes that, while there is substantial support for the Rational Design project's hypotheses, their explanations are necessarily incomplete without the insight of theories based on power and socialization.

Abstract: The Scenario-Based Design as an instrument for participatory technology development – according to the euphoric descriptions in the literature (e.g. Carroll 1995; Rosson/Carroll 2003) – at first sight offers significant potential for an early inclusion of future users. In the course of a three-year research project this method has been examined as a procedure for a participatory technology development (the application of two service robots in a station-ary care facility for the elderly). In the process, particularly two predetermined breaking points became visible, which, in respect of both the scenario development and the role of the users during the pilot applications, infiltrated the ambitious aims of the procedure: The technical limitation and the scenarios’ ‘independent existence’ lead to an imbalance in fa-vour of the designers’ interests and orientations during the scenario modelling, whereas the pilot applications are marked by the purpose of a user configuration rather than a tech-nical adaptation to the social context. The particular significance of the scenarios can be described as ‘Obligatory Passage Points’ (Callon 2006): they represent constitutive hubs in the network formation of the innovation programme. Likewise, unintended phenome-nons and those which impede the intention of a demand-orientated technology develop-ment are identifiable. The social scientists and designers fostering the exchange are trans-lated by the dominant programme of the efficacious and authoritative scenarios, whereas the potential users (senior citizens in a nursing facility) are being reconfigured (Woolgar 1991) and will join the process as ‘border crosser’ (Bowker/Star 1999; Suchmann 2007).
