1. Fussell, Hilary. "Who Are Fund Raisers? An Exploratory Look at Role Theory in Fund Raising" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the International Communication Association, Dresden International Congress Centre, Dresden, Germany, Online <PDF>. 2019-05-22 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p90569_index.html>
Publication Type: Conference Paper/Unpublished Manuscript
Abstract: Fund raising has been conducted in various shapes and sizes for decades but is only now establishing itself as a true profession. The dynamics involved with certain professional roles include a clear definition of the field and a description of those that perform the tasks and functions of that field. Furthermore, the roles of practitioners exemplify the duties of the profession and the level of competence needed to establish a model for best practices in fund raising.
The purpose of this study is to explore the theory-driven research of role theory in public relations and its application to fund raising. This objective will be accomplished by examining, Broom and Smith’s role theory (1969), Spitzberg and Cupach’s communication competence theory (1984), and Rokeach’s (1973) instrumental values (1966). In accomplishing these objectives, two research questions will be answered and used as a base for further study in fund raising.

"The Use of the Internet for Terrorist Purposes: A Discussion of the Intelligence Challenges in Tracking, Tracing and Investigating Terrorist Fund-Raising and Fund Transfer Activities via the Internet" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the International Studies Association, Hilton Hawaiian Village, Honolulu, Hawaii, Mar 05, 2005 <Not Available>. 2019-05-22 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p70852_index.html>

Abstract: Intelligence gathering and proliferation techniques will face unique challenges in the 21st century. The spread of global terrorism, and combined with the global proliferation of the Internet further complicate this issue. Whereas the Internet provides a streamlined form of increasingly simple and accessible channels of communication, it simultaneously can be used for criminal and terrorist activities. The design of the Internet and the protocols that make it work permit terrorists to conceal locations, sources and even destinations of fund transfers, and or fund storage online. Online, offshore access and manipulation provide an easy conduit for terrorist financing operations. This paper will explore and define the problem as it exists today, and will provide some insight as to how this threat can be managed in the future, via tools, investigations or enhanced intelligence-gathering techniques. To this end, the paper will propose a taxonomy for managing future online terrorist fund-raising and fund transfer activities.

Abstract: The Oklahoma Life Sciences Fund, LLC (OLSF) is an early-stage venture capital fund that provides promising Oklahoma life science startups with the capital and guidance they need to grow. In February of 2010, William Paiva, Ph.D., fund manager, selected two students from the University of Oklahoma to participate in the New Venture Professional Development Program, a two-year internship funded through the Oklahoma Center for the Advancement of Science and Technology (OCAST). Since February, Ben West and TJ Moen have worked with Dr. Paiva to enhance Oklahoma’s life sciences landscape while gaining first hand experience in the venture capital industry. Not only have they been able to experience all aspects of fund management, from looking at new investment opportunities to sitting in on board meetings, but they have also had the chance to work on the other side of the table with many OLSF portfolio companies. Ben and TJ have certainly made a positive impact on OLSF, but perhaps more importantly, the New Venture Professional Development Program has proven to have a tremendous impact on these young associates, both of whom are extremely excited to contribute to Oklahoma’s research economy for years to come.

4. Langley, Paul. "Pension Fund Capitalism, Pension Fund Socialism, and Dissent From Investment" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the International Studies Association, Town & Country Resort and Convention Center, San Diego, California, USA, Mar 22, 2006 <Not Available>. 2019-05-22 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p100182_index.html>
Publication Type: Conference Paper/Unpublished Manuscript
Abstract: The paper reflects upon the political contestation of pension fund investment practices in the US and UK. Critical understandings of pension fund capitalism shared by academics and activists tend to assert the contemporary hegemony of finance capital. Workers savings are being manipulated through pension fund investment practices that maximise financial returns at the expense of workers welfare. A class politics of resistance follows that seeks to re-insert the interests and values of labour into the investment practices of pension funds. The task for activists becomes to replace short-termism and the drive for shareholder value in investment with the long-term concerns of stakeholders. The paper will argue, however, that this vision of pension fund socialism is more problematic than is often assumed. It is not simply that the corporate governance campaigns of pension fund activists have proved unable up to this point to shake the hold of shareholder value over investment practices. Rather, pension fund socialism calls up a politics of resistance that claims to operate in the name of the working class understood as a cohesive set of interests. Transformations in Anglo-American occupational pensions, most notably the shift from defined-benefit to defined-contribution plans, are at the same time creating multiple identities and perceived interests. Therefore, the paper marks out a broader politics of dissent that imagines and promotes political space in which collectivities can emerge amongst individualised pension savers interested in practicing progressive forms of investment.

Abstract: Based on fieldwork in Uganda and interviews with key players in the Ugandan antiretroviral (ARV) supply chains, this research follows the course of ARVs as they travel through the country from planning forecasts to their physical arrival at Entebbe International Airport and to the pharmacies of HIV treatment programs across the country. The research centers on a comparison of the Ministry of Health supply chain, which is largely supplied through money from the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria, and the supply chain of a local NGO funded by the US President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR). The former has faced drug expiries and regular stock-outs; the latter, a steady stream of ARVs. Using interviews and business process mapping, the research identifies a series of structural differences between the two chains and discusses their relation to the challenges currently faced by the Ministry, as well as the differential development of sustainable national capacity between the funding streams.
