Abstract: Despite progress that has been made worldwide regarding female political participation, the question of why more women do not enter the political arena remains. This study explored how women from MMIAPEZ (Mongolia, Morocco, India, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Egypt, and Zambia) discursively construct obstacles and barriers to their participation in politics, as well as their political interest and ability to participate in politics. Fifty-eight in-depth semi-structured face-to-face interviews were conducted with young women from seven different countries. Using a qualitative approach and thematic analysis, this study explored how political cynicism potentially presents unique challenges and obstacles for political participation for women in MMIAPEZ.

2. Speckman, Karon. "Post-9/11 Elections: Media Habits that Could Better Serve Young Voters" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the The Midwest Political Science Association, Palmer House Hilton, Chicago, Illinois, Apr 20, 2006 <Not Available>. 2019-10-15 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p137033_index.html>

Abstract: Expanding on Tocqueville and Bellah et al.’s habits of the heart this paper argues that Wallace’s four basic habits of oral communication developed in the McCarthy era can be applied to improving media coverage of post-9/11 elections for young voters. Although Wallace was writing about an ethic of oral communication, his habits not only can be adapted for media but also are especially appropriate in a post-9/11 period that could be compared to the McCarthy era.
The paper’s first section focuses on changes in political communication in 2004 and which media young voters use. Although voting results for 2004 election show an increase in turnout, traditionally young voters vote at lower rates than other cohorts and should not be ignored by politicians nor media. Thus, understanding how political communication changed in 2004 is important to understanding that traditional media may need to adapt as youth utilize more fragmented media. The second section examines youth involvement in the 2004 election in relationship to the need to improve social capital. Putnam suggested that 9/11 was a galvanizing crisis that could improve civic health. However, young voters’ civic health or sense of community may not have improved. Traditional media is not adapting to young voters’ media usage. Finally, the third section analyzes Wallace’s four basic habits and gives suggestions for use in media coverage that would be beneficial to younger voters.

Abstract: This paper explains the volatility accompanying the pacifying power of economic interdependence in Taiwan-China relations. Viewing from Taiwan's domestic politics, I argue an explanatory factor is how consolidated the Taiwanese leader's power was.
