Abstract: This paper is providing a comparative analysis of political participation in Europe, Eurasia, Asia and the Arab World in the time period 1981 - 2015. It is analyzing the longitudinal direction of conventional political participation like voting or signing a petition on the one hand and of unconventional political participation like joining a boycott, participating in demonstrations or join strike on the other. The main survey data base of this paper is the World Value Survey in its 6 waves between 1981 and 2014. The other survey data base are several regional Barometers within the Global Barometer Survey Group, such as the Eurasia Barometer, the Asia Barometer and the Arab Barometer. The paper is looking at the increasing or decreasing trend of specific forms of political participation in different world regions. It will propose a multivariate model of conventional and unconventional political participation, which is considering the influence and impact of social structure, social capital, political interest, political involvement and support for democracy on conventional political participation on the one hand and on unconventional political participation on the other. The main research question is if we can speak of one specific trend of political participation which is the same in ALL world regions or if we have to speak of regional patterns of political participation.

Abstract: To date there have been few systematic investigations of the role political parties play in women’s recruitment, specifically in more formal candidate nomination processes. Across U.S. states, the strength of political parties to influence candidate nominations varies. I examine how this variation influences women’s candidacies for statewide office. That is, in states where political parties are more powerful, does this increase or decrease the chances a female candidate gains party endorsement or elective office? I investigate to what extent political parties and nomination mechanisms constitute a missing piece of the puzzle of women’s descriptive underrepresentation in statewide offices. To do this, I examine the proportion of and success rates of female candidates between 1988 and 2006 using a unique data set of primary and general election results held in all 50 states. In the aggregate, a significantly higher proportion of women run in primaries and general election contests in states where political parties nominate candidates preprimary. Further, women candidates in preprimary states win at higher, but not significantly so, rates. I find that these results are especially strong in the time period before and just after the “Year of the Woman”; thereafter the rates of women running and winning are more equivalent across states with different nomination systems.

Abstract: Almost two decades have now passed since the launching of the Mediterranean Action Plan since 1975. A number of similar regional initiatives were launched throughout Europe since then as, for instance, the Barcelona, Helsinki, Oslo and Paris Conventions on coastal areas. Concerning mountain areas, the Alpine Convention was opened for signature in 1991 and it was followed in 2003 by its "sister" Carpathian Convention. This paper proposes an appraisal of the design of the Alpine Convention in the light of how it was written, one decade of implementation and how it is impacting the development of the Carpathian Convention and future multilateral agreements for the protection and sustainable development of other mountain regions. While the former had remarkable effects on the design of both conventions, the latter strongly impacted their respective implementation.

Abstract: Barack Obama’s keynote address to the 2004 Democratic National Convention is one of the most significant speeches in American political history. The speech not only catapulted the freshman Senator from Illinois into the national arena, but it helped to shape the identity of a Democratic Party striving to define itself. In his analysis of party convention addresses, Pfau notes that to the extent that there has “always been an element of posturing and staging to the national party convention,” the “attempts by contemporary commentators to propound the view that recent party conventions have fallen far below the lofty standards set by early conventions seem misplaced.” This analysis of Barack Obama’s keynote address does not challenge Pfau’s conclusion, but rather suggests that the assumption of distinct “deliberative” and “epideictic” genres is itself misleading. Obama’s address, while fulfilling assumptions of epideictic address such as party unity and rallying around shared values, also argues for the direction and future of a party in transition and, thus, plays a deliberative role.
