1. Penha Brasil, Pedro. "Assimetrias do Regime Internacional de Não-Proliferação Nuclear: o predomínio do horizontal sobre o vertical - Asymmetry in the International Non-Proliferation Regime: the predominance of the horizontal over the vertical" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the ISA - ABRI JOINT INTERNATIONAL MEETING, Pontifical Catholic University, Rio de Janeiro Campus (PUC-Rio), Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, Jul 22, 2009 <Not Available>. 2019-11-21 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p381041_index.html>

Abstract: Este trabalho visa a esclarecer o funcionamento do regime internacional de não-proliferação nuclear para identificar suas assimetrias inerentes. O enfoque internacional dado, desde o primeiro momento, à não-proliferação horizontal, em detrimento da não-proliferação vertical, ilustra uma clara assimetria não apenas do regime, mas também do sistema internacional como um todo, assim como a incapacidade das instituições internacionais envolvidas no processo de promover maior multilateralismo e representatividade no regime.

Busca-se, portanto, entender o regime, identificar as origens das assimetrias, como elas aparecem no funcionamento atual e o que está sendo feito para combatê-las, em prol de um regime de não-proliferação mais eficiente.

Abstract: This paper answers the question raised by the panel from a critical theory point of view which stresses in particular the interests driving the progressive expansion and lop-sided integration of the European Union and the problematic effects of these processes for disadvantaged citizens both east and west. The answer to the question whether the concepts of "north" versus "south" can usefully be applied to a discussion of contemporary political economic dynamics in Europe is both yes, to some extent, and, ultimately, no. On the one hand, the concepts of north and south are indeed at least to some extent useful heuristic devices for understand the evolving relations between the so-called old and new Europe, because they can draw attention to structural relationships of exploitation stable enough to pattern the processes of transformation taking place throughout the region. The concepts of north versus south invoke an evolving theoretical apparatus which was designed to focus us on such patterns, for legitimate reasons and arguably with some practical benefits for members of the global south. On the other hand, territorially based conceptions of regional and global politics which take direction from the cardinal compass points draw attention away from continuing transnationalization processes that intensify domestic heterogeneity while integrating (groups of) political agents across borders. Ultimately, it is argued, the vocabulary of "south versus north", just like that of "east versus west", must be abandoned in favor of a vocabulary that more accurately captures the empirical referent targeted by our theorizing: structural relationships supporting patterns of exploitation under the changing and progressively deterritorializing conditions of today's political economy.

Abstract: Longstanding methods to depict the participation levels of under-represented students in math, science and engineering fields remain incomplete. To remedy this, our study examines the horizontal segregation by gender, race and ethnicity of students in U.S. universities. We employ the index of dissimilarity to examine racial and gender segregation within science fields. We also examine representation at institutions of varying levels of selectivity. By considering multiple dimensions of participation, our findings uncover a greater level of complexity in the representation of women and minorities in science fields.

Abstract: This paper reports results of an empirical investigation of Russian individualism and collectivism in terms of horizontal and vertical dimensions. The study was conducted with Russian university students and its results showed that Russian students’ culture refers to a horizontal individualistic type. Such findings contradict to a common classification of Russia as a collectivistic culture and as a culture that easily submits to authorities.

Abstract: As part of a queer theatre project, this performance ethnography questions on how the LGBTQ community has acted against their own best interest through the act of silencing. Developed into three genres of literature (prose, poetry, and drama), the performer/researcher begins to question his own silence and builds the courage to confront his loved ones about his own sexuality. Performing ethnographic texts has been an innovative way to challenge readers and audiences over dominant stereotypes and myths concerning both the lived realities of certain marginalized groups (Mienczakowski & Moore, 2008, p. 453). After the performance, audience members are invited to question, dialogue, and construct new understandings. Can performance make a difference? Does this kind of performativity disrupt or advance knowledge on issues of queer identity?
