Abstract

This presentation is based on an article in the British Journal of Politics and International Relations volume 13, (3) August 2011 that I wrote entitled ‘British Conservatism and Foreign Policy: Traditions and Ideas Shaping Cameron’s Global View’. The purpose of this presentation is to explain some of the traditions and ideas that have contributed to Conservative foreign policy in the post-war era and evaluate their impact and influence on senior Conservatives including the Prime Minister David Cameron and the Foreign Secretary William Hague. This is done through a mixed methodology which combines text analysis of speeches and policy documents with elite interviews conducted with four former Conservative foreign secretaries. Traditions and ideas that are explained include the notion of the ‘special relationship’; the ‘War on Terror’; and liberal interventionism. It is hoped that this presentation, and the interpretive analysis offered, speaks into ongoing projects by scholars interested in the role played by traditions and ideas within the practice of politics.

Abstract: Based on dissertation field research, this paper explores the implications of the new emphasis on local community development within conservation strategies. Does this new model enhance efforts atpreserving biodiversity? Does it improve human wellbeing? After assessing the success of four Integrated Conservation and DevelopmentProjects, two on Sumatra and two on Borneo, potential explanations for these outcomes are discussed. Broadly, there are 3 categories ofpotential explanations for project success or failure: exogenous variables, endogenous variables, and general feasibility of projectgoals.

Abstract: "Warning: In case of rapture this car will be unmanned!" This was a popular bumper sticker during the 1970s, when fundamentalist protestant denominations began to flourish in the United States. In a theological sense, the rapture has not arrived ever since – but politically, they forayed into the highest echelons of US politics.
This paper takes the long view (1950-1980) on the rise of conservative Protestantism as a political force in the US. The paper presents this foray by arguing that some elements of fundamentalist protestant theology served as a tool to overcome differences based on altering fundamentalist protestant faith traditions, and when united by values, they challenged social changes they rejected. By identifying these uniting elements and rejected social changes, the paper places the conservative protestant political movement of this period within the sphere of “reactionary conservatism.”

"The political economy of biodiversity conservation: Is there a link between income inequality and nature conservation?" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the Midwest Political Science Association 67th Annual National Conference, The Palmer House Hilton, Chicago, IL, <Not Available>. 2019-04-23 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p363238_index.html>

Abstract: This paper examines the relationship between an important measure of environmental change, biodiversity loss, and economic inequality. Theoretical explanations purport that inequality thwarts collective action required for environmental protection (Olson 1965, Boyce 2002). There is empirical evidence that income distribution is linked to human and environmental health (Torras 2006, Mikkelson et al 2007), but little is known about the direction and strength of this association. This paper seeks to enhance our understanding of how income inequality is linked to environmental health by empirically analyzing, over time (1980-2000) and across countries, the effects of income distribution on biological diversity (number of threatened bird, mammal and fish species, deforestation and percent protected land). The Gini ratio of income inequality together with other biophysical, socioeconomic and political control variables are analyzed using a multiple regression model to capture the cross-national variability of economic inequality on changes in biodiversity. By exploring the biodiversity-equality relationship, this paper contributes to the discussion of how economic policies can enhance or undermine nature conservation efforts.

Abstract: Education is critical for management of marine protected areas, particularly where resources for official enforcement are limited and compliance with regulations is largely determined by local communities. This presentation will describe how education has been linked with multi-disciplinary research on marine protected areas in The Bahamas. In addition to participation of students and faculty in fieldwork, the research provided the impetus for a complementary educational initiative to strengthen marine education across The Bahamas. The recently published guide, "Treasures in the Sea: Our Bahamian Marine Resources," provides educators with scientific information and engaging, hands-on activities to incorporate marine conservation concepts into their curriculum. The process of developing this resource involved a survey of existing educational materials, consultation with scientists on concepts to cover and accuracy of information, and extensive discussion with teachers to adapt activities for the Bahamian context and ensure that educational goals are addressed. Following initial training workshops in July 2007, teachers have led subsequent workshops for others in their schools and are implementing activities with students. The evaluation process includes collecting feedback from teachers and examining learning outcomes.
